The entire tech world is debating the consequences of artificial intelligence and the part AI is going to play in shaping our future. While we might think that AI is at least few years away from causing any significant effects on our lives, the fact is that it is already having an enormous impact on us . Artificial Intelligence is affecting our daily routine.
Is it unconvincing, let me give you some examples of usage of AI in our day to day life:
• Smart phones
Smart phones have become the most indispensable tech product that we own today and we use it almost all the time. Well, if you are using a smart phone, you are interacting with AI whether you know it or not. From the perceptible AI features such as the built-in smart assistants to the ones such as the portrait mode in the camera, AI is impacting our day to day lives.
Have you ever thought how Google Pixel 2 can capture such great portrait shots with just a single lens? The answer is Artificial Intelligence. Features like app actions, splices, and adaptive battery in Android Pie are made possible with AI. So, next time if you think AI is not effecting you, take out your smart phone.
• Security and Surveillance
It is not possible for humans to keep monitoring multiple monitors with feeds from hundreds if not thousands of cameras at the same time, and hence, using AI makes perfect sense. With technologies like object recognition and facial recognition getting better every day, it won’t be long when all the security camera feeds are being monitored by an AI and not a human.
• Navigation and Travel
• By now you must be convinced of the fact that AI is impacting our lives on a daily basis. However, if there are still some sceptics out there let us take a few more examples. Most of us travel from time to time and use the navigation on almost a daily basis. Do you know that whether you are using Google map for navigating, or booking a flight ticket, or calling an Uber, you are using AI? Well if you didn’t know that before, it’s time that you open your eyes. When you are calling an Uber both the pricing and the car that matches your ride request is decided by AI. AI plays a significant role in how we reach from one point to other.
• Social Media Feeds
Even if you are living under a rock, there is high probability that you are tweeting from underneath it. If Twitter is not your choice then may be Facebook or instagram.
Well, if you are using social media, most of your decisions are being impacted by AI.
• Fun Stuff
