Artificial intelligence (AI), specifically machine learning, is considered one of the greatest innovations of the world and one of the best in the tech industry. We at Eden AI will like to help you understand it as regular people only hear about AI from various science fiction shows and movies about living computers and super genius machines. Not only that, they picture machine learning as this massive leap in industrialisation. These are not only exaggerations, but also obscure what machine learning is doing in our world.
Game Artificial Intelligence
While most people think of robots when talking about AI and machine learning they seem to forget about gaming. The AI for video game enemies as well as the algorithm for random encounters are all based on machine learning.
When most people think of machine learning in automated transportation, they think about self driving cars. While that is something that it can do, that is not where it starts and ends. For example, modern commercial aircraft use Flight Management System, a combination of GPS, motion sensors, and computer systems to track its position during flight. Even for self-driving cars, machine learning helps self-driving cars make split-second decisions, while learning from new road situations.
While we have not reached the point where we have fused with machines and have metal flesh we do have cyborg technology. To paraphrase Elon Musk we are already cyborgs, we just haven’t fused with the machines yet. These technologies include Fitbits that use machine learning to determine how healthy you are based on the information it takes in on our smartphones.
Taking Over Dangerous Jobs
When it comes to dangerous jobs these are where machine learning are thriving. From things from bomb disposal robots and even drone snipers robots are taking the more lethal jobs so human lives won’t be risked.
With the ability to analyse mass amounts of data it has found a place in environmental protection. For example, IBM’s Climate & Sustainability Program uses AI to analyse environmental data from thousands of sensors and sources to discover climate mitigation solutions. Their products also allow city planners to run “what-if” scenarios and model ways to mitigate environmental impact.
Enhanced Health Care
It has been seen that hospitals that utilise machine learning to aid in treating patients see fewer accidents and fewer cases of hospital-related illnesses, like sepsis. AI is also tackling some of medicine’s most intractable problems, such as allowing researchers to better understand genetic diseases through the use of predictive models. The additional ability to go through massive amounts of data also helps these healthcare professionals better understand the needs of their patients.
Personalised Digital Media
With machine learning different apps have begun using algorithms to personalise the user experience. This brings the content that the users like to the forefront and puts the ones they do not like aside increasing user satisfaction and retention.
Digital Personal Assistance
From Siri to Alexa, digital assistants are starting to become more and more mainstream and these are examples of machine learning in people’s lives. Although they are still in their early stages, far from the Sci-Fi robot assistant we see on TV, and are dependent on our input to do half of what we want them to do, they are still a massive step for machine learning. Fortunately, they are still getting better every year and could reach that point soon.
Customised News and Market Reports
Reg Chua, COO of Reuters News, claims that technologies are close to providing customised news and market reports, and newsrooms are starting to embrace the possibilities. This means that instead of getting generic information about the market, people are starting to get more personalized information about their stock and what their market share is.
The AI dream is not a new thing and the use of machine learning has become something that is more and more integrated into the world we live in. Let us give you more insights into what a world with machine learning looks like. You can contact Eden AI today at email@example.com.
