During the recent years, artificial intelligence has been one of the hottest topics among technology enthusiasts all over the world. With its limitless potential, it is only a matter of time before artificial intelligence will create a huge impact, not only for huge industries and businesses, but also in the fields of medicine and academics, and even just inside your home.
Do you know that you can make your home smarter with artificial intelligence through the use of different smart devices and appliances and easy to use applications? Artificial intelligence provides convenience by automating tasks through your home appliances, reduces power consumption by optimizing energy efficiency, makes your viewing and gaming experience more fun and exciting, and keeps you secured day and night through anti-theft devices and fire alarms. Those are just a few examples of how artificial intelligence can bring difference to our daily lives.
While the past year has been a huge one for artificial intelligence, this year promises a lot more not only in terms of boosting the topic to the mainstream but also in providing a big difference on business models and in the society. Check out this four things that you can do with artificial intelligence in 2019.
Machine Learning and Automation
As stated before, artificial intelligence (AI) brings more convenience at home by doing various tasks for you. AI is also now used in diverse applications of greater complexity outside the simple household chores. We have seen machine learning and artificial intelligence used for transport in the form of automated or self-driving cars. It also has a huge potential in the field of medicine wherein medical procedures can be performed by robots with accuracy and in public safety in security by using smart machines in search and rescue missions or in bomb defusal operations, for example.
Virtual Personal Assistants
During the recent years, there have been a number of multinational companies investing huge money and manpower on research to improve machine learning and artificial intelligence. This led to the emergence of virtual personal assistants such as Siri, Alexa, Cortana, Bixby, and Google Assistant. Besides recognizing voice commands and initiating actions, these smart applications are also programmed to learn your everyday routines and perform other complex tasks.
Instead of randomly providing suggestions, smart devices can now provide personalized options for you. From watching your favorite media content to reading news that piques your interest, artificial intelligence tailors what you see and what you experience based on your personal preferences. The uses of AI in personalized customization can range from as simple as selecting a song of your favorite band or genre to suggesting upcoming events within your area that will fit into your schedule.
As a proof that the potential of artificial intelligence has virtually no limits, researchers in Japan have developed empathetic robots that are not only capable of reading human emotions but they also process them, learn them, and take actions to help humans stay happy. With this technology already on the rise, it may not take time before companion robots become a popular trend.
