What You Don’t Know About AI

While you may have heard about AI in the news before, it may still seem like something that is futuristic. However, with advancements in technology, AI is beginning to be used more and more. Because of this, it may not be something so far in the future, but rather something that could affect your everyday life in an increasing amount of ways. Here are a few things it can be helpful to know about advances in the world of AI.

What Is AI?

AI is short for artificial intelligence. Sometimes in the context of computer science, it is referred to as computer intelligence. This kind of intelligence is only displayed by machines, as opposed to natural intelligence which is displayed by humans. Some things that AI may be capable of are learning, communicating and problem solving. AI has been around for many years and has gone through many changes since it has been a field of study, and seems to be increasingly capable of more complex tasks. In recent years, it has become more popular and as there have been more advancements in AI, new uses for it are frequently being discovered.

AI May Grow in Popularity

While AI may sound futuristic, it does in fact seem to be growing in popularity in many areas, and may end up being used in multiple ways in day to day life. As developments in AI are made, some are discovering ways in which it can help simplify tasks that are a part of everyday life. From helping to streamline shopping experiences to home security to the development of self-driving cars, there may be many ways in which AI is or could become an integral part of your life.

It Could Affect Your Work and Finances

These days it seems that an increasing number of companies and businesses are taking advantage of the possibilities that AI may offer, because of this having some basic knowledge of AI and how it works could become important at some companies, even if they aren't directly related to technology. When it comes to personal finance, AI has potential to affect the way that you spend and use money, with some even believing that in the future, with the help of AI and facial recognition, you may be able to use your face in place of a credit card or other forms of payment.

AI and Entertainment

Not only can AI have an impact on business and commerce, but it can have an effect on entertainment and other recreational areas of life as well. One way that AI seems to already be in use is with popular television streaming platforms. Often, these platforms may use AI to see how you react to the shows that you watch, and will use these reactions to help decide what other shows to display that you may be interested in. This way, your viewing experience may be more tailored to you and your preferences, without you having to do any extra work.

How AI Could Change Your Home

Even though you may not realize it, it is possible that you may already be using AI in your home. Some common examples of AI use in the home are digital personal assistants like Siri and Alexa. With increasing developments in AI, there may be potential to make personal assistants like these even more human like in some ways, and they could potentially learn to show traits such as empathy.

The Bottom Line

AI is a field that seems to be growing quickly and making an increasing amount of advancements. Due to this, there appears to be more ways to apply it to every day life being discovered all the time.

So, whether you are already aware of AI, or don't know much about this growing field, taking some time to learn a little about AI and the ways in which it is used could potentially help you in ways you may not have predicted.
