In January I was in Las Vegas for the annual CES convention when the term “AI” was thrown about like a dog with a chew toy. Unlike other CES conventions of recent past – where 3D TVs and VR headsets were promised as the future – this time round AI seems to be causing a bit of a stir!

No longer are the gadgets the star of the show, it’s now a service or process where a machine learns from things you feed it. You, or someone else. Either information or text with context added, images, or even video and so on. You heard all this before.

Dan M Lee
Pro Travel and Adventure Photographer, Educator and Author

Dan M Lee is a professional travel and adventure photographer who has shared his knowledge with hundreds of individuals through his in-person wilderness photography training and thousands more through his writing. That includes a book, Creating Photography: The Professional Edge but the way to get involved is to join him on an expedition via kodiakphotoworkshop.com.

Dan has a broad range of photographic interests – and tech enthusiasm – which he can trace back to his first job, while still at school, in a photography shop in England. He has since been lured across the Atlantic to New York City where he undertakes commissions for numerous publishers.

His extensive traveling means he can be out of his home for more than half the year, which has also seen him develop an interest in smart security systems.

He is also a regular on the Not The Gear and The Grumpy Photographer podcasts.
