Artificial intelligence is no longer the technology of future. Its already here. We might not have been entirely successful in creating a machine rival of the human brain but it’s just a matter of time. Artificial intelligence has moved out of the research labs into the real world and there is hardly any aspect of our life which is left untouched by it.
How many of us love talking to Siri, or find it amusing how Alexa can play our favorite song or even set our alarm. These virtual personal assistants are based on voice – activated user interface developed through Machine Learning. Gone are the days when we would stop by to ask way to strangers. Now, we are all addicted to the GPS navigation service for finding the shortest route to work or the less congested way in rainy afternoon. In fact when we uber, the app estimates the time and price of the ride. Jeff Schneider, the engineering lead at Uber ATC reveals in an interview that they use Machine Learning to define price surge hours by predicting the rider demand.
Isn’t it convenient to see our emails are already sorted into primary, social, promotional and spam. Multi-Layer Perceptron, C 4.5 Decision Tree Induction are some of the spam filtering techniques that are powered by Machine Learning. How do you feel when you upload a picture of you with a friend on Facebook or when you get recommendations of movies, songs, friends in all your social media apps. There are innumerable examples were machine learning has been proving its potential. Industries have been continuously exploring machine learning and artificial intelligence to automate the tasks. Artificial intelligence has been driving emerging technologies like big data, deep learning, robotics and IoT, and it will continue to act as a technological innovator for the foreseeable future.
As rightly said by AI Oracle and Venture Capitalist Dr. Kaifu Lee: Artificial Intelligence is going to change the world more than anything in the history of mankind. More than electricity.
