We all know that how AI has been changing our life by invading to different domains. The tech giants are working on the next generation AI technology for self-driving cars and other self-operating equipment. But, what if I tell you that you experience AI in a day to day life, only these big pictures of the technology make it harder to spot them. Artificial Intelligence may have received global recognition now, but different industries have used it over the last decade.
We interact with AI technology on a daily basis, and it could be while commuting, shopping online or sending an email to your friend. With the help of this article, I will be helping you in unveiling some encounters with AI in your day to day life.
Google is among the industry leaders who believe that AI is the key to a more productive and efficient future. The company has integrated the technology to almost its all services, but the most appreciable is Gmail. Google has made Gmail much smarter for the users with the support of AI and machine learning.
AI enabled features in Gmail:
Social networking is a crucial part of our life nowadays. Whether it is personal use or targeting the people for business. With the help of Artificial Intelligence, the companies have made social media platforms smarter. This enables the users to communicate with each other more efficiently and in a personalized way.
Facebook automatically spot the person in the images that you upload from your friend list and suggest you tag them. The facial recognition isn't the only help from AI, and Facebook also uses the technology to personalized the users’ news feed. The platform understands your behavior and pattern to provide the most relevant and personalized content.
The most significant initiative taken by Facebook back in 2017 when it launched the proactive detection feature. The AI algorithm helps the platform in scanning the posts from individual users to spot any pattern leading to self-harm. In case it detects any pattern representing the suicidal thinking it automatically informed the company and immediately sends the mental health resources to the person.
For example, it can replace the laughing emoji with ‘lol’ or ‘rofl.’ Besides, the AI algorithm helps Instagram in suggesting the precise emojis to the users during conversation or writing a text on a post. This could seem a small application of AI, but Instagram has experienced a heavy usage in emojis after adding this.
Once you search anything, like ‘Android charger’ or ‘hulk action figure,’ it will display you a list of most relevant items to your search. However, Google didn't share how it does that, but the company surely uses AI for these actions.
Besides, on Amazon, you must have seen the personalized suggestion posted on your homepage based on your previous search and purchased items.
The use of Artificial Intelligence is not only limited to the online shopping or helping the users for an improved experience but also for security improvements. Banks use the technology to make sure that the users don't become the victim of any potential fraudulent activity.
For example, if you are making a significant transaction via your mobile, then the bank will notify you to ensure that it's you who is making the transaction. The AI program integrated into the bank’s system learns and understands the user's behavior to spot any unusual activity.
Now, the voice control interface has become streamlined with the introduction to the smart voice assistant. To further evolve the smartphones and gadgets usage, the AI-equipped assistants make it easier to control them via voice commands.
Uber: The ride-hailing giant Uber also relies on AI to serve the best ride-sharing service. The company uses the technology to determine how long will it take to get you from pickup to drop location. Besides, it also depends on the AI to give you ETA for the coming ride and food delivery.
According to a report from ZDNet tech, Uber uses the Artificial Intelligence to predict the prices of rides on the basis of their analysis showing how much you're willing to pay. Along with this, the company is also working on a new technology integrated with AI to analyze the rider behavior and predict his/her condition while taking the ride. For example, it will help in determining if a rider has been drinking before the cab driver agrees to take the ride.
We have uncovered only a little surface where Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning has been affecting our day to day life. If you focus and observe you will find more examples beyond these where you're interacting with technology on a daily basis. Whether it is communicating with a friend via email or surfing the web the technology is around your on a day to day tasks.
