Over the last 10 years, Artificial Intelligence has ascended from a catch phrase to technology, converted to platforms and now used in business services and robotics. You may have heard of Watson Dominated Jeopardy, Siri, Cortana, or even Jarvis from The Iron Man. These are all real applications you can expect to have major impact on our lives in the very near future, if not already.
So, what is Artificial Intelligence and how does it work? In short, it’s the design and development of computer system that inherits human’s decision making abilities and able to perform tasks through visual, speech and cognitive decision making. So here are 5 things about artificial intelligence you need to know:
1.) Artificial intelligence lives among us already
Everyday application including music streaming services (Pandora, Spotify, Apple Music, etc.), personal assistants (Siri, Google Now, Cortana, etc.) and your favorite social media sites such as Facebook are all using a form of Artificial Intelligence. They happen more often than we know it. For instance, when you thumbs up or down on a song and your music station just magically gets a bit closer to the music of your taste, or, talking to your phone and ask it to perform a complicated task, how about uploading photo to Facebook and it magically identify who’s in the picture and already have them tagged?

2.) There are lovers and haters of Artificial Intelligence
Tech startups and bluechip companies are actively investing R&D into Artificial Intelligence. AI has proven itself to be future proof and a platform to be consider as cash cow. On the flip side of the coin, if you’e a big fan of Elon Musk, you know he feels more harm than good in the field of Artificial Intelligence in hands of others than himself. Elon Musk is the co-chair of OpenAI, an non-profit organization that strives to promote and develop open-source AI.
3.) Big tech companies are betting on Artificial Intelligence
Companies are actively exploring new areas to enhance algorithms and strengthen existing technologies. The bottomline is simple, the more output of data the smarter Artificial Intelligence get benefited.
4.) Get ready or get replaced by Artificial Intelligence
That’s right, prepare to challenge yourself and learn some more skills. As Artificial Intelligence grow exponentially, it’s certain that robotics will be on top of the list. This allows manufactures to reduce overhead cost across the board while increasing efficiency and productivity. So put back-on your learning hat and become the jack of all trades in your field!
5.) Prepare for a shift of behavior with Artificial Intelligence
Ever feel like teaching your parents or grandparents on how to use smartphones or smart TV is a nightmare? Well, you’re just seeing the tip of the iceberg. Try explaining that talking to a robot is a norm in a couple of years. Today, we see a multitude of smart in-house devices that actively track your movement, answer your questions and adjust your environment settings. Twenty years from now you may just have your own R2-D2 or BB-2 !
Artificial Intelligence may seem like it’s not a big deal today, but as each day pass by, this technology is growing at a unprecedented rate. How has Artificial Intelligence in today’s environment affect you? How do you think Artificial Intelligence is going to affect the future? Do you see any marketing practices overruled or enhanced by the effects of AI?
