There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of questions. So it's good to find someone you can ask questions to when you're really wondering. Maybe there is a colleague, friend or neighbor who knows a lot about artificial intelligence?

It is also possible to search the Internet (or ask the AI ​​itself), but remember that not everything you find is reliable. It is important to critically evaluate the sources you use, and choose information from reputable websites or publications.

If you're not sure, it may be a good idea to ask several people and compare answers to get a more accurate picture.
