Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is a developing technology that is being introduced everywhere in our lives. The technology doesn’t have to be something truly futuristic like the things you see in movies, but we are still seeing it used for those purposes and that is beautiful. The technology itself is capable of doing wonders for the world, but it also can’t help but impress those who come in contact with it. It could be a robot that is made to look human, or it could be a program which does something useful for us every day.
It can help us with our health care, if we let it.
It can make mundane tasks easier, provide a better experience for customers and allow us to communicate more efficiently. And yet, many are still apprehensive about the future of AI.
AI Can Help You Feel Healthier
AI is making its way into healthcare and helping to improve it. From diagnosing cancer using computer vision to detecting heart attacks using voice and facial analysis, AI has been shown to successfully perform many tasks that were previously only done by humans.
It also helps patients keep track of their health by monitoring their vital signs through wearables and encouraging them to maintain a healthy lifestyle. By actually engaging with individuals who may have previously neglected their health, AI is making this process feel less like a chore.
AI Can Improve Your Quality of Life
Autonomous cars will change our lives in many ways, one of which is how we use our time while in transit. Traveling by autonomous car involves less stress than when driving oneself, and allows us to use the time spent traveling more productively.
It can help humans create beautiful, breathtaking visual art and music.
You might think that artificial intelligence (AI) is all about cold, hard data — but it can also create beautiful things. AIs can create paintings, music and even poetry.
The world has already seen examples of AI-created art. Google’s Deep Dream algorithm, for example, applies a neural network to any image to produce what looks like an acid trip from the 1960s. Art lovers paid tens of thousands of dollars for Deep Dream creations in 2015.
It can help scientists make amazing discoveries.
AI is also making us live longer, healthier lives, a fact that shouldn’t be overlooked. The current state of artificial intelligence is improving healthcare in a myriad of ways. The future of AI-enabled healthcare is bright and exciting. We’re sharing three ways we believe AI will enhance the quality of our lives in the near future.
The ability to quickly diagnose patients correctly can mean the difference between life and death for many critical conditions. Today, doctors rely heavily on symptoms, scans and tests to determine the cause of a patient’s condition or disease. In some cases, diagnosis can take days or weeks and require multiple visits to specialists before an accurate diagnosis is made. With AI-enabled solutions in medicine, doctors will have access to more data from which to determine diagnoses faster and with greater accuracy than ever before.
Infectious Disease Outbreaks
AI can help monitor infectious diseases by identifying outbreaks early on as well as reduce their severity once they’ve begun spreading. According to a study conducted by researchers at Harvard Medical School, AI can be used to help predict diseases like malaria, Ebola and Zika up to 12 months in advance based on climate factors like temperature and rainfall patterns. Other factors that impact the
It can help us become better writers and speakers.
There are plenty of tools out there that can help us become better writers and speakers. We all know how difficult it is to write a cover letter, but what about if there was an algorithm that could help you write one?
Wordsmith, for example, is a natural language generation platform that turns data into narrative. It can take any kind of data in any form — spreadsheets, databases, APIs — and turn it into human-sounding prose. For example, you can use Wordsmith to take stock market data and turn it into easily digestible news stories.
Similarly, another startup called Articoolo offers an AI-based article writing tool that writes articles similar to those of a human writer within minutes. The tool uses algorithms that learn from your input and the content available on the web to create high quality content for you.
It can help us keep our young kids safe online.
Let’s face it: We are in love with artificial intelligence. Or, at the very least, we’re infatuated. By now, we’re all used to the idea that AI can help us manage our digital lives better than any human assistant or friend ever could.
But let’s not get caught up in the hype around AI. The technology is developing rapidly and has many promising use cases, but it’s still a long way from becoming an all-knowing super brain (or evil overlord).
A good example of this is language translation. It’s remarkable that you can talk into your phone and have it translate your words into a foreign language for someone else on the other side of the world to understand. Yet, AI struggles to correctly translate idioms and colloquialisms — two things that make up so much of our everyday language.
One thing that distinguishes humans from other primates — and other animals, for that matter — is our ability to communicate complex ideas through language. As AI becomes more sophisticated, I expect it will also become better at translating idioms and thus help us communicate more effectively across borders and cultures. But until then, it will likely continue to struggle with these nuances of language.
It can help preserve the beauty of landscapes and wildlife on earth for future generations.
