At the first glance, you think that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a science fiction or a theoretical concept, but the truth is, you’re using it every day! Yes! It’s TRUE!
Starting from Your smartphone to your car and bank, all use artificial intelligence on a daily basis; sometimes it’s obvious what it’s’ doing, like when you ask Siri to get you directions to the nearest gas station. Sometimes it’s less obvious, like when you make an abnormal purchase on your credit card and don’t get a fraud alert from your bank. AI is everywhere, and it’s making a huge difference in our lives every day.
As artificial intelligence continues to advance, more and more businesses are starting to take the interest. Businesses from every industry are trying to figure out how they can update their solutions to leverage artificial intelligence, or how they can find new and interesting solutions to take advantage of the technology.
So What are the top use cases for AI?! Well, let’s go deeper!
Smart Virtual Personal Assistants
More than anything else, Siri, Google Now, Cortana and Alexa have left us wanting agents that can understand and interact with us better, independently take action in the real world for us.
The importance of this technology for the consumer lies in the fact that you will no longer be required to download a new app every time you want to do something new or that you have yet downloaded the appropriate app for, you will be able to make a request to your personal assistant and THEY will figure out the best way of achieving that task within their capabilities of course.
The personal assistants will essentially integrate the functions of an incredible array of apps in order to allow you to basically “one stop shop” in a sense. Instead of needing multiple apps you will have one personal assistant instead.
Well, by now, you can read the newspaper or eat your breakfast while driving to your work! Self-driving cars are moving closer and closer to reality; thanks to Google’s self-driving car project and Tesla.
If you’re playing Far fly or Call of Duty, then you’re familiar with Artificial Intelligence! They make significant use of AI, with enemies that can analyze their environments to find objects or actions that might be beneficial to their survival; they’ll take cover, investigate sounds, use flanking maneuvers, and communicate with other AIs to increase their chances of victory.
In sports, it is normal for coaches and team members to go over footage and try to determine ways they can perform better next time. A team of researchers want to help assess athletic performance quicker with deep learning techniques. The team uses deep learning techniques to learn the behavior of each player, examine the player’s history, and make predictions.
Every year, there are huge efforts and money are invested in AI to improve these games to be as what you can see it! It looks simple, but to reach that level of proficiency and intelligence, it took too much!
Online Customer Support
Many websites now offer online customer support to help you if you need help, you can simply chat with a customer support representative while browsing, but not every website has a real live person on the other side helping you, it’s all because of AI. In many cases, you’re talking to a rudimentary AI.
Many of these chat support bots amount to little more than automated responders, but some of them are actually able to extract knowledge from the website and present it to customers when they ask for it.
AI makes smart homes smarter! AI in devices that have learned your habits can start to predict the experience that matches your needs at a given moment. So, for example, if everyone has left the house it knows not to turn on the lights. Or if you drive off to work, it will turn down the thermostat; and if everyone is out of the house, it knows to lock the doors.
