Suddenly Artificial Intelligence seems like a penetrating force in almost everything in our life. For some time, machines and gadgets seem to be more capable to understand our needs more aptly than ever before. Machines are imitating human intelligence and rationale behind various tasks and this is what we grossly term as Artificial Intelligence.
Thanks to AI your mobile knows when you do not like receiving notifications and accordingly cancels them or mutes them. Thanks to AI your TV knows your preference of channels and only show those you like. The coffee vending machine just prepares the coffee just after your alarm rings and you pull off the curtains for fresh daylight. That’s AI for you, adding value to your living with intelligent automation and interactions.
- Who’s Going To Have The Control?
There is a growing perception that the increasing influence of machine intelligence can actually snatch eventually the human control responsible for these algorithms and applications. Such a perception does not seem to be entirely groundless but what it lacks is the understanding of the human side of Artificial Intelligence. Yes, AI in spite of its prowess is mostly limited with the idea of making human lives better. They are still unequipped to imitate human judgement and delicate nature of human perceptions. So, the power of Artificial Intelligence as of now is only about enriching user experience and not about exercising total control of human endeavours.
- The Human Face Of Artificial Intelligence
Antoine Blondeau, the mind behind predictive texting and voice controlled smart digital assistant Siri which was unleashed by Apple few years ago with the objective of making device level interactions for iOS users effortless recently commented that Artificial Intelligence in the time to come will be more humanely in nature and workings. When he developed Siri, it was a revolutionary outcome considering path created with this. Siri was the first fully fledged, intelligent digital assistant enabling users to carry on tasks with voice commands. It was also the first of its kind smart app having capability to process and comprehend natural language.
From the time Siri was launched, we have travelled far beyond the smart interactive capabilities of virtual assistants. Today these virtual assistants became so common a part of our day to day digital activities through handheld devices, that we no longer consider them to hold any promise for AI deployment in the time to come. AI has come of age and has now become a mainstay in many modern systems and apps with automation being their driving force. As Antoine Blondeau said, all these smart and intelligent interactions will penetrate into many spheres of life traditionally left behind the high tech influence and manoeuvres.
- AI Playing Key Role To Make Our Life Better
The advancement in robotics will play a key role in allowing machine intelligence to play a vital role in the workplaces of tomorrow. In the time to come smart robots powered with advanced analytics and data processing can initiate real time decision making for manufacturing units and business workplaces. There is also an array of subtle ways Artificial Intelligence can really make workplace better. For instance, smart office curtains that adjusts to the indoor light requirements and smart coffee vending machines capable to produce freshly brewed coffee just at right times when you need are some of the examples how AI can really make indoor experience better whether at workplace or at home.
AI can also play a positively influential role to make other facets of life such as agriculture or civic supplies or city transportation better. With remote controlled modern sprinklers for farming already in place, it is no longer a surprising thing to make sprinklers control watering of farmland automatically without requiring any human intervention. Similarly, modern transport systems can be equipped to have more self control of their on-road behaviour with AI enabled sensors and smart control mechanism in place.
