"AI is going to change the world more than anything in the history of mankind. More than electricity."— AI oracle and venture capitalist Dr. Kai-Fu Lee, 2018
This statement is undoubtedly getting true with the time, and it is not far away when AI will be an integral part of your life.
Mobiles have started integrating AI in their processing. Now the processor which used to come for executing and handling basic tasks of the cellular devices- are now getting smarter and quicker with AI! Battery efficiency, performance, image & graphic processing- has never been so improved without AI.
Even the cameras of smartphones are now enabled with AI and can see, detect and understand image background in milliseconds and suggest you the best mode to choose for a picture-perfect shot! These cameras can catch numbers of people in the frame, their smile, motion, or state of the mood, distance, etc., quite well.
All such futuristic updates are happening in the present, and this is just because of the implementation of AI.
Why the need for AI?
It is surprising that with AI, we have given capabilities to machines to understand our emotions (a bit), talk to us, do our some of the jobs better, and faster than us. Also, even the machines with AI delivers more output and performance comparing without AI.
Like, we have seen how AI is redefining the way people use digital phones and their applications. AI is also revamping new age dials. With AI-enabled watch and wrist band, it is possible now to track heartbeat, blood pressure, footsteps took, calories burned, and thus, even also predicting any future medical emergency. Plus, AI also provides emergency assistance. It is how AI opens this new door of innovation and future exploration!
Even the automobile industry has started using AI. Now your car can sense its speed and suggest precautions to avoid any mishappening. With AI, you can let your car automatically adjust its ambiance & temperature based upon the surrounding. It can also sense the possible collision and can help you avoid it. Who is near to your car, how much they are close, which direction they are heading from, etc., can be seen on the car dashboard. You can now possibly be sure (than before) that your loved ones are traveling safer in the AI-enabled car.
Even you can track your car and monitor its driving pattern from a remote location and provide the required assistance, as well.
Education is also not away from the benefits of AI. Based on your reading interest and level of understanding, AI can help you suggest courses and modules upgrade your skills. Individual learning and monitoring are possible now, irrespective of any number of students in the class.
Also, for differently-abled, AI is like a miracle. With the latest invention and application of AI, a differently able person can show the same level of capabilities as an ordinary being. AI-powered advanced computing-enabled-devices have given wings to the skills of differently-abled society and helped them tremendously, to be a part of the mainstream.
