Artificial intelligence

You might think that artificial intelligence is only something the tech giants are focused on and that it doesn’t have any impact on your household or everyday life. But the reality is different. Whether you realize it or not Artificial Intelligence is everywhere. The application of AI is not only for big sectors or finance or manufacturing, it is also impacting our daily lives. So, let’s find out about the use of artificial intelligence in your daily life. 

 

Smart Assistants

Perhaps the most popular use of AI comes in the form of digital smart assistants, such as Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant. These AI-powered personal assistants can take in your voice commands and translate them into actions, such as adding items to your shopping list or calling a friend. There’s no question that voice assistants will continue to grow and become even more capable of assisting us in our daily lives.

 

AI Cleaner 

Even though the past nine examples of artificial intelligence are all some sort of service or software, that doesn’t mean that AI doesn’t come in the shape of physical machines as well. And you may have some in your own home. Robot’s Roomba vacuum cleaner uses AI to scan the size of the room it is in, identifies obstacles, and determines the most efficient route to sweep the space.

 

Smart Kitchen Appliance

Smart Fridge 

Your new smart fridge may be able to track when food is low and place orders for you when food is low. Or, better yet, AI could be used to help you create the perfect meal with just the ingredients you have in the refrigerator. Utilizing AI technologies with gastronomical learning, companies like Plant Jammer and Chefling are helping people create delicious food with the ingredients they have on hand. 

 

Enhanced health and fitness at home

Being able to monitor patients at home with real-time data remotely, effectively, could be revolutionary. Going far beyond the Apple watch that you have on your wrist right now, healthcare professionals could tap into the predictive powers of AI to determine patients who are potentially at risk for disease or injury. This would give doctors a lot more power but could alleviate some of the pressure placed on the healthcare systems during flu season, saving lives. 

 

Home Projects 

We all know that home projects are not always the most exciting. Even more so, when something breaks in your home, you want to fix it as soon as possible. Just like a smart medical device, homes can run self-diagnostics predicting potential issues before they occur, contacting the appropriate repairman, who may be a robot. 

 

Interconnected Home 

5G technology and the IoT are just on the horizon. These technologies will help create a living technological ecosystem by real-time data and will be analyzed using Artificial Intelligence. Your home or apartment will be a part of this ecosystem interconnected in this complex web. The new smart towns and cities will use your data to improve the quality of life of people around the city in various areas like energy consumption, traffic, and even overcrowding. 

 

Facial Recognition

Today almost everyone uses smartphones, right? Facial recognition is not something new. Every app like Snapchat, Facebook, LucidPix, etc uses Artificial Intelligence in its facial recognition technology.  

LucidPix uses facial recognition to detect a user’s face for the “3D Face” feature, which allows users to capture and convert their selfies to 3D photos. Similarly, Snapchat uses Artificial Intelligence. to recognize users’ faces and apply face filters to users’ photos. In Facebook, facial recognition is used to identify faces in photos and invite users to tag themselves or their Facebook friends.

 

Media Recommendations

If you’ve ever finished watching a TV show on Netflix, you’ve probably noticed how Netflix immediately displays other shows you may enjoy watching next. YouTube is another platform that recommends a series of videos you might like next after you’ve finished watching one video. Both these digital media services analyze hundreds of records to suggest films, TV shows, and videos that you might like based on your previous reactions and choices of media.

 

Online Banking

Many banks now offer mobile check deposit services to their customers, which also utilize machine learning. Banking apps can recognize and read your handwriting to translate that to a digital check. So, now you can sit at your home and transfer money. This makes things so easy especially during the pandemic.
