Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a broadly-used term which can cover the production of cars, cupcakes or computers. Its use as a blanket term disguises how important it is to be clear about AI’s purpose. Purpose impacts the choice of technology, how it is measured and the ethics of its application.
At its root, AI is based on different meta-level purposes. As the overall definition of AI can vary, so does its purpose at an applied level. From the analysis of Jen Hyatt, founder and chief executive officer of a British information technology company, there are at least eight types of purpose within applied conversational AI: to sell, to inform, to learn, to connect, to entertain, to manage, to identify and to change.
Currently, the most common purpose of conversational AI is transactional (to sell). According to a 2017 Statista report, the public views chatbots- an AI which conducts a conversation via auditory or textual methods- as primarily for more immediate, personalized and simple interaction with their chosen brands. The report also suggested that it is easier to track the outcomes for some purposes than others. Instant responses and answers to simple questions as the essential consumer outcomes for chatbots in the customer services field are easier to follow than diagnostic or behavioural purposes which often require more rigorous scientific approaches.
The long-term winners in the conversational AI space will be those who can demonstrate meaningful use and beneficial outcomes that stem directly from the purpose of their systems. Purpose-related outcomes, beyond those applied to transactional conversational AI, are the best driver of successful business models.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 36 to 42.
The cities in the United States have been the most visible sponsors and beneficiaries of projects that place art in public places. They have shown exceptional imagination in applying the diverse forms of contemporary art to a wide variety of purposes. The activities observed in a number of “pioneer” cities sponsoring art in public places - a broadening exploration of public sites, an increasing awareness among both sponsors and the public of the varieties of contemporary artistic practice, and a growing public enthusiasm - are increasingly characteristic of cities across the country. With many cities now undergoing renewed development, opportunities are continuously emerging for the inclusion or art in new or renewed public environments, including buildings, plazas, parks, and transportation facilities. The result of these activities is a group of artworks that reflect the diversity of contemporary art and the varying character and goals of the sponsoring communities.
In sculpture, the projects range from a cartoonlike Mermaid in Miami Beach by Roy Lichtenstein to a small forest planted in New York City by Alan Sonfist. The use of murals followed quickly upon the use of sculpture and has brought to public sites the work of artists as different as the realist Thomas Hart Benton and the Pop artist Robert Rauschenberg. The specialized requirements of particular urban situations have further expanded the use of art in public places: in Memphis, sculptor Richard Hunt has created a monument to Martin Luther King, Jr., who was slain there; in New York, Dan Flavin and Bill Brand have contributed neon and animation works to the enhancement of mass transit facilities. And in numerous cities, art is being raised as a symbol of the commitment to revitalize urban areas.
By continuing to sponsor projects involving a growing body of art in public places, cities will certainly enlarge the situations in which the public encounters and grows familiar with the various forms of contemporary art. Indeed, cities are providing artists with an opportunity to communicate with a new and broader audience. Artists are recognizing the distinction between public and private spaces, and taking that into account when executing their public commissions. They are working in new, often more durable media, and on an unaccustomed scale.
