5 Ways AI Is Revolutionizing the Tech Industry
Posted on Thursday, October 31, 2019 and filed under Articles
Artificial Intelligence is one of the most disruptive technological innovations of recent times. People believe that AI is the future and while that is true, it is also the present. AI has been around for a while, permitting the development of some of the most pioneering technological applications known to man.
- Autonomous Cars
Self-driving cars have been an enduring concept. Tech giants like Google have been working on developing, refining and employing AI technology for years, utilizing autonomous vehicles to collect visual and geographical data.
Companies like Tesla have already introduced cars that have passed the level 2 autonomy test. This means that the car’s AI can effectively ‘self-drive’ and is even capable of identifying and reacting to risky maneuvers and situations. Fully autonomous (SAE Level 5) cars are yet to hit the roads, but they are no longer a pipe dream.
- Healthcare Industry
AI has caused significant upheavals in the healthcare industry too. AI has been instrumental in the creation of contemporary prosthetics. Today, with the successful completion of the world’s first AI- supported, remote-operated robot surgery, the possibilities are endless. Specialists have predicted that soon, patients are likely to undergo fully mechanized operations, with little to no help from a human surgeon.
Furthermore, AI has helped accelerate the analysis of data. Using deep-learning, AI instantly recognizes patterns and tessellations that the human mind might struggle with. In the medical field, this increases the likelihood of identifying imminent life-threatening diseases like Pneumothorax.
For a long time, education was one industry that remained mostly unaffected by technology. However, AI is transforming the education sector to create student-specific educational content that caters to students across the globe, with varying needs.
AI assesses the strengths and weaknesses of each student and helps create a breakdown that details each student’s strengths and weaknesses, while also identifying the lesson delivery methods that are most likely to result in improved academic performance.
Furthermore, AI is being incorporated into schools through Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and IoT whiteboards, helping to make the learning process more convenient.
- Digital Security
Traditional cyber security tools use non-corollary, signature-based detection to discover threats. In essence, these security tools employ AI tech and complex machine-learning algorithms to analyze patterns and identify and neutralize unwanted digital threats before they cause any significant damage.
Platforms like nLighten8 provide security against viruses, hackers, and other potential threats. Such platforms are only going to see increasing demand as more people and industries set up a digital presence.
- Personal Assistance Tools
As the world moves towards convenience intensive tools, personal assistance tools will increase in demand. We have already witnessed the successful introduction of AI-powered assistants with offerings like Cortana, Siri, Alexa, and the Google Assistant.
These applications use DNN’s (Deep Neural Networks), which processes information multiple times over, filtering and making connections as needed. AI-assistants of the future are set to become fully autonomous and will be further incorporated in our lives, adding improved convenience and enhanced connectivity.
Even with all these technical advances, the AI revolution is still in its infancy stage. The innovations of today are merely setting us up for the endless possibilities the future holds. This digital revolution is our introduction to a 21st-century renaissance.
