With all the latest advancements in science and technology, there are very few aspects that are untouched by programming. From medtech to space tech and even to help people sleep better, algorithms are everywhere and the most talked about subset of computer programming has to be Artificial Intelligence or AI. It has been the central theme of discussion amongst scholars and tech billionaires alike.

Thus the program was born that made the world’s first AI-created whisky possible.
