November 16, 2017

While science fiction often portrays Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a human-like robot character, you might be surprised to find out that you’re already using it on our daily basis, affecting how we live. In the past few years, AI is rapidly growing and changing into smarter program and allowing it to enhance its capabilities and its knowledge. It also gives huge effect on our life, whether you’re aware of it or not.

Our virtual personal assistants, such as Siri, Google Assistant, Alexa or Cortana are several examples of AI technology that we already use on our daily basis without even realizing it. In short, they help find useful information you asked using your voice and will respond by relaying information from your phone, or sending commands to other apps.

As one of the most-used smartphone applications, Google Maps is also using AI technology to analyze the speed of movement of traffic at any given time. It also can give accurate traffic incidents report like construction and accidents. Access to vast amounts of data being fed to its proprietary algorithms means the application can reduce commutes by suggesting the fastest routes to and from work or wherever our destination is.

AI is defined as a science that aiming to create intelligent machines that are as capable as humans. It  is  concerned  with  the  development  of  computers  able  to  engage  in  human-like  thought processes such as learning, reasoning, and self-correction. Machines that powered by AI can perform many tasks, such as recognizing complex patterns, synthesizing information, drawing conclusions, and also forecasting.

A true artificially-intelligent system is one that can learn on its own. The ability of AI systems is to transform vast amounts of complex, ambiguous information into insight that has the potential to solve some enduring problems that no humans could perform and delivers some benefits. AI systems can be used in many areas, such as to help discover insights to treat disease, predict the traffic, and fraud detection.

By seeing all the potentials that AI could offer, many industries are starting to implement this technology to increase their performance. According to McKinsey studies in 2016, companies already invested $26 Billion to $39 Billion in AI. Based on Gartner prediction, by 2020, AI will be a top five investment priority for more than 30% of CIOs.
