Updated: Jun 6, 2020

AI and its Applications

Artificial Intelligence word itself grabs the attention of ours, isn't it?  AI, just by hearing it we start thinking about various machines, models, drones and robots which works on our command. So do you want some more applications which you might not have heard of! Let's go on-

Self-Driving Cars and drones

The title itself isn't interesting? Means can really cars can be driven with just some technologies and without any driver? Tesla was one of the first automotive brands to launch a self-driving vehicle, and Audi, Cadillac, and Volvo are already developing their own models. But that’s not all. Uber already made the first 50,000-beer delivery with a self-driving truck. Even some big names like Walmart and Amazon are already investing heavily in drone delivery programs and it’s likely to become prevalent soon.

Want to buy something, just a photo away!

You might have experienced sometimes we find something which we like but don't have any idea about it so we take a photo of it to find it or something similar. It doesn’t have to be so complicated anymore. Amazon, the giant e-commerce platform, has already implemented a visual search option on its mobile application. Just take a photo of the item you want, and it will show you something very similar or identical. So that you can buy anything and don't have to think much about it and can buy it right away. All thanks to AI, which make it more easily without any complications.

Is AI The Fortune-teller?

Do you AI can predict certain things more accurately than a human does? Actually, One day, AI may know more about people than you ever imagined. Some of the best examples where AI predicts are - Facebook is using artificial intelligence bots that can save the lives of people at risk of committing suicide. In which AI identifies Facebook posts that could indicate suicidal tendencies. Facebook’s AI technology identified over 100 cases that required intervention. Want some more examples to have a look at this -Even if you’re thinking about quitting your current job, AI may know it before Human Resources does. IBM has a solution that uses predictive analytics to identify personnel retention problems. This program can find common factors that cause its staff to quit, creating a quality score for each employee based on the projected probability that they will leave the company soon.

AI, A Superhuman Doctor?

As we all know the presence of AI is tremendously going on increasing in the field of medicine. AI is not only able to save certain areas of the ecosystem, but it can also save human lives. Through AI and deep learning, doctors can promptly diagnose cancer, before it’s too late. AI can be used for diagnosing, treating and predicting outcomes in many medical situations. AI has the potential to be used in every field of medicine such as drug development, patient monitoring and personalized patient treatment plans. The basic example of AI being used in medicine is -Insights for patient data. Artificial intelligence can identify the problems contained in patients’ historical medical records. It summarizes the history of their care around those problems and can provide a cognitive summary of patient records. While considering these AI is not replacing doctors it's just making them better

Is AI the smartest investor?

The financial sector heavily relies on real-time reporting, accuracy, and processing of large volumes of quantitative data to make crucial decisions. Now, there’re automated advisors powered by AI, who’s capable of predicting the best portfolio or stock based on preferences by scanning the market data. Actionable reports based on relevant financial data is also being generated by scanning millions of key data points, thus saving analysts numerous hours of work.

AI-based Smart Home devices

As we have already seen the use of in various fields, now we even have AI-home-based devices which use AI to learn your behaviour so that they can adjust their settings automatically to make your experience as frictionless as possible. Already, there’re smart lights that can change intensity and colour based on time, and thermostats that can adjust the temperature based on user preference, among others. While it's true it’ll take some time for us to build a perfect AI-powered home capable of reacting to our choices, steps are already been taken towards this.

What are Siri and Alexa?

Are these machines incorporated with the human tendency to talk like humans and to understand them? Well, we are familiar with Siri and Alexa, these are the voice-activated computer with whom we interact on a daily basis. While uses machine-learning technology to get smarter and better able to predict and understand our natural-language questions and requests, Alexa helps us scour the web for information, shop, schedule appointments, set alarms and a million other things. Thus these Siri, Alexa and even more are not computer humans to understand us but they are just the applications of AI which make them do so. So as far as I'm concerned I must say, AI has got a wider scope and they may function certain things which a human can't, but still, they aren't replacing humans, they are just making things better and helping humans for a better world. Being millennials it's essential for us to know what is AI. How does it work? AI is a complex term that can be made easy by learning about its functions and working, And this is very easily described in the magazine given below, even it includes the histories and updates of AI. So do check that out here.
