Imagine a machine that can organize your cupboard just the way you like it or serve each member of the house a customized cup of coffee! These are all the products of artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence (AI) are machines artificially incorporated with human-like intelligence to perform tasks like you and I do. This intelligence is built using complex algorithms and mathematical functions. Generalized learning, reasoning, and problem-solving are the three capabilities that make a machine artificially intelligent.
By 2027, the global Artificial Intelligence market is projected to reach $267 billion driven by a compounding growth rate of 33.2%. The impact AI already has on our present-day lives is difficult to ignore-
Transportation: Self-driving cars that once seemed to be way into the future are now a reality. Moreover, the navigators in our cars are already a specimen of AI that analyses enormous data to provide the shortest way to the destination, all in real-time. AI has the potential to ease traffic problems, smoothen traffic congestions and make parking more efficient. AI is going to play a pivotal role in the urban planning of the future.
Manufacturing: AI robots work alongside humans to perform simple tasks of assembling, packing, and stacking. Although currently, they can only assist in a limited range of tasks, soon they will work just as efficiently as humans. The continuous need to save costs and shorten production time is driving manufacturers to adopt AI. The future of manufacturing entails AI machines that can detect defects, respond to changes in demand and supply in real-time, reduce manufacturing costs, and cut down production time.
Healthcare: AI has already taken over the healthcare industry. AI-enabled systems have been invented to warn a physician and predict the risk of having a heart attack. The best part of AI in healthcare is that it does not require experts to develop new medications. It allows one to use the existing medication in the correct way and at the correct time.
Education: Digital learning was inevitable and the pandemic has only accelerated this. With the help of AI, the content of the lessons can be updated to keep the information relevant. Furthermore, educators can virtually analyse the facial expressions of the students to know who is bored or struggling and consequently, tailor the learning process accordingly to their needs.
Agriculture: Agriculture is harnessing AI too. All traditional problems of farming can be solved with AI- weather forecasting, soil monitoring systems, analysing crop health and detecting pests with the help of AI systems. The most recent AI invention is ‘See and Spray’ that uses object detectors to monitor crops’ requirements and spray water and fertilizers accordingly.
These advances are only the beginning and what is to come is unfathomable. Quoting David Vandegrift, co-founder of 4Degrees, “I think anybody making assumptions about the capabilities of intelligent software capping out at some point are mistaken.”
