Artificial Intelligence (AI) is typically defined as the ability of a machine to perform cognitive functions we associate with human minds, such as perceiving, reasoning, learning, interacting with the environment, problem solving, and even exercising creativity. Examples of technologies that enable AI to solve business problems are robotics and autonomous vehicles, computer vision, language, virtual agents, and machine learning.

- The American Society of Human Genetics declared the concept of "racial purity" meaningless from a scientific standpoint. The society, which is the largest professional organisation of scientists who work in human genetics, called the ideas of white supremacists about genetics "bogus," "discredited" and "distorted". The ASHG also claimed that as far as the scientists are concerned, the age-old concept of race is wrong and humans cannot be split into subcategories that would be biologically different from each other.
