What’s an example of AI that you use in your daily life?  (might be none)

I ask Siri to find a particular video for me to stream (voice recognition)

I look for images of turtles on Google images.  

I use autocomplete functions in my texts and when I am typing in English in Duolingo.

I travel to different schools around the city. I'm always asking Google to help me find my way. 

The other thing I use constantly is spell check. It really helps those of us that are challenged in this area, but I end up with some very interesting auto-corrects at differnt times.

I use google search on a daily basis to help solve problems or look for specific information to help my in my classroom.

I also ask my virtual google assistant to play music, lower the volume, define a word

Recently I received a smart vac (robot) to help with sweeping and mopping, it maps out my house on its own and drives around and sweeps all day

How I love Google translate!  The ability to hover my phone over a student's work, have a program detect the language and have it translate what is on the page to a language of my choosing.  I use this all the time with my ESL students. Like most, I also use my phone and Google maps to find my way around, giving me real time directions, re-calculating routes based on obstacles, and find local restaurants, landmarks, and fuel stations along the way.

I am a bit behind in taking advantage of AI as much as a should in my own personal life given that I am a CS educator! 

I have been using our Google Home device recently and plan to start using my smartphone with voice commands. 

In the classroom, I am much better. I look for opportunities to bring AI into the classroom strategically. I use Google Draw, I use google translate and have taught a unit with Cozmo AI in third grade. We are trying to run an after school program at a school where I coach for grade 5 using the Ready AI curriculum.
