Artificial Intelligence is the vicinity of engineering and science concentrating on developing the machines as intelligent humans. In present times, AI is a popular subject widely discussed in business circles. Many experts argue that AI is the future, but if we look all around us, we are convinced that it’s not the future but the present. From smartphones, calculators, cars to banks all use artificial intelligence. The technology of AI has come a long way in the last decade. Its applications, and uses are endless.

AI is the machine that is designed and programmed to think and act like a human. For most of us, new gadgets, experiences such as smart speakers, or the ability to unlock the phone through the face are the apparent AI results. However, this technology is poised to reinvent other areas of life. The technology can help us in medicine, environmental monitoring, and even streamlining the transportation systems and monetary flows and supporting us in protecting the nation. The road ahead for AI is more like the runway, and one can foresee us blasting off into the future within the coming years.

AI has reached a point where it can offer invaluable aid in speeding up tasks performed by people such as the rule-based system of AI used in tax software and accounting. Curiously, the most successful examples of AI systems are the ones invisible to the people using them. Very few people are grateful to AI for saving their lives when they marginally avoid crashing their car due to the computer-controlled braking system. Digital personal assistants that we use in our daily lives for all our query require AI to collect information and serve you result tailored as per your preference.

With all the hype about artificial intelligence around the corner, self-driving cars, translation, etc.; it can be challenging to look around at how AI affects our lives from moment to moment. The entire technology world is debating the significances of AI, and the part it is going to play in shaping the future. Here are the top ten examples of AI we are using in our daily lives-

Smartphones

If you are reading this article, you perhaps own a smartphone. It is genuinely the most indispensable product of technology we own today and use almost every time. Whether or not you know it, while using the smartphone, you interact with AI. Features such as in-built smart assistants, portrait mode in cameras, and the technology of AI impact our lives daily.

Let us consider two examples that will give a glimpse into the world of AI and its effect. A prominent example is of smart assistants. From asking questions to looking for specific information, we use these assistants. However, the portrait mode effect in shooting a picture is not an obvious example of AI. We never consider that this technology might be behind that too.

Presently, more and more manufactures are incorporating AI in their smartphones. The integration of artificial intelligence is bringing features such as scene detection etc. The technology of AI is going to play an even more crucial role in the coming future. We are already witnessing the vast emphasis on AI with the latest android and iOS updates. Adaptive batteries, splices, etc. are made possible due to the technology of AI.

Social Media

Talking about smartphones, bring us to the second most popular AI example-Social media feeds. There is a myriad of apps out there. Well, if you choose any of the social media, your decision is being impacted by AI. From the feeds to the notifications you receive each second, everything is curated by artificial intelligence. The technology of AI takes all your past searches, interactions and tailors the experience for you. Artificial intelligence’s primary purpose is to make the apps so interactive and addictive that you come back to it again and again.

Across all social media platforms, AI is regulating how the content you create. Artificial Intelligence is a fundamental part of the functioning of social media networks today. Today, you can create social media ads through AI tools.

Thanks to AI’s ability to predict at a scale which language will bring outstanding results, you can optimize ads for clicks and conversions.

Travel and Navigation

If you are skeptical about how AI impacts our daily lives, consider the examples of navigation apps we use now and then. From using digital maps to booking a car or flight for travel, you are interacting with AI. Navigations apps use artificial intelligence to interpret data points they receive and provide real-traffic data. When we book a cab, AI decides both the car and pricing that matches your request.

The capacity of AI to perform tasks traditionally requiring human cognitive function has made it useful for those in the travel industry. Many hotels and resorts rely on AI technology to deliver an excellent customer service experience.

Banking 

AI is a hot subject in the banking and finance industry. The world functions on the money where banks are the gatekeepers regulating the flow. From fraud assistance, customer service to investment, AI impacts the finance industry. Automated emails from banks out of the ordinary transaction are an example of the use of AI.

Besides, when we hitch a little snag and chat with the bank’s customer service, the odds are that we are chatting with an AI bot. It is poised to play an even more significant part of the industry. Central banks worldwide invest billions of dollars in AI, and the effect will be visible sooner than later.

Smart Devices for Homes

Our homes have become ‘smart’. Thanks to AI, we now have smart thermostats that learn about heating and cooling preferences to adjust to our liking temperature. Smart refrigerators is another example. They create lists based on no longer things in your fridge and offer suggestions that would go with dinner. It won’t be long when we will interact with all our smart home devices through AI only.

Surveillance 

Monitoring hundreds of cameras at the same time is not possible for a human. Hence, using AI is an ideal choice. Technologies such as object and facial recognition are transforming every day. It won’t be long when AI will monitor all the cameras. Facial recognition software has its use in hotels, banks, airports, etc. This software is far from perfect, but it is a “force-multiplier” meaning instead of 100 humans monitoring 20 video screens each, the computer software screens for suspicious behavior, and a single human can monitor 2000 cameras.

Healthcare

The use of AI is growing with leaps and bounds and extending to the healthcare sector. The introduction of AI-powered machines makes diagnosis easier. Besides, it is playing a significant role in simplifying the management and treatment processes. As a result, hospitals are rapidly embracing AI-enabled technologies to expedite almost everything from research to disease diagnoses.

E-Commerce

With the support of AI, the e-commerce industry is enhancing the customer experience. Personalization, targeting customers, and suggesting products based on their purchase and browsing history is possible only due to artificial intelligence. Considering the increasing trend, many e-commerce businesses have started to incorporate artificial intelligence technology to comprehend consumers better.

Presently, the e-commerce business is booming and, more and more consumers are adapting to this trend of online shopping. In such a golden scenario, AI plays a significant role in identifying the shoppers’ buying behaviour for developing personalized experiences. The AI solutions for sales and CRM aids the business in predictive marketing. Preparing SEO-friendly descriptions for all items can be time-consuming. AI helps in combating such time-taking activity by scrutinizing major features to design descriptions.

Video Games

A vast number of video games —whether racing-car games, shooting games, or strategy games –have various components powered by AI or related applications. The primary objective of utilizing AI in gaming is to bring a realistic gaming experience for players to battle against each other on a digital platform. Artificial Intelligence in gaming also helps to enhance the players’ interest and satisfaction over a longer duration. AI’s aim in video games is not to develop an unbeatable entity for players to fight against but is instead meant to increase player participation and enjoyment.

There are several ways in which AI and game development are developing through each other. In spite of the fact that Artificial Intelligence keeps on being accustomed to bring life into video games. Computer games are currently designed with the purpose to study their patterns to mend their algorithms.

Media Streaming Services

Let us consider the example of music and media streaming services we are using in our everyday lives to know the impact of AI. It is the artificial intelligence deciding for you irrespective of the media streaming service you are using. We all have seen recommendations for videos in media apps. AI analyses the search, previous browsing history to recommend videos. Whether you play a recommended video, listen to a pre-created playlist, AI plays a significant role.

Bottom Line 

Artificial intelligence, portrayed in movies as science fiction, has become a part of our lives in several different ways. The creation of AI is by itself a revolution in the way humans see the world. Now it is possible to see a humanized robot performing the same tasks as a human being, with cognitive functions and the ability to learn on the way. The fact is, the advances won’t stop here, and even though we all see everyday examples of the use of artificial intelligence all around us, the trend will continue to increase.

Nowadays, intelligent systems are controlling the world’s largest search engines. It is helping us to sort never-ending heaps of data. Despite consumers getting more used to the world where AI systems can perform complex tasks, we still have a way ahead of us before we can even remotely approach humans’ convoluted thinking.

Simultaneously, we have to carefully analyze consequences arising from the use of AI, as we move beyond Simple Neural Networks into systems that are closely modeled on the human neural structure. These systems could realistically begin operating in unpredictable ways that are beyond the immediate understanding. However, all potential issues seem trivial when we consider how AI can improve all aspects of life.
