It is no longer news that more and more Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been appearing in various ways in our lives. From the most discreet to the most exuberant ways.
All this development and creation of more technology that uses AI, many people are still in doubt whether it will be an advantage or not. In today’s article, we’ll show you how some AI technologies can improve our lives.
First of all, it is necessary to explain that there is a difference between Human Intelligence and Machine Intelligence.
Put simply, human intelligence involves the ability to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, understand complex ideas, learn fast, and learn from experience.
Machine intelligence is just a sequence of instructions. They don’t have the ability to adapt. Through codes, we tell them exactly what to do.
What about Artificial Intelligence? Well, the AI right in the middle of these two extremes. It is the combination of the ability to interpret codes and pre-defined instructions and, at the same time, interpret and learn from the data through what we call machine learning.
Films such as Me, Robot, Ex Machina, Chappie, The Terminator, Ela and even the animated film Mitchell against the Machines are films that address these topics of artificial intelligence. As in the future there may be Robots that resemble Humans and do various tasks, some show a darker side of this world, others not so much.
But don’t think that Artificial Intelligence itself is something far from your reality. Despite the way movies and science fiction make us see Artificial Intelligence, the truth is that nowadays a large part of the population has contact with I.A applications every day!
Like? When you open up Netflix and see all those movie recommendations based on what you watched before: it’s applied artificial intelligence.
When you order a Uber Eats and they show you all the way and delivery time, it’s also artificial intelligence… Even when you open your Instagram feed! Although in a more discreet way, these are already some examples that you are using AI in your day-to-day.
And the truth is that the existence of Robos is not part of our imagination either. Robos like Sophia have already been introduced to the public. The Robot Sophia was designed to adapt to human behavior and became so popular that it was already on the cover of a magazine and won the title of citizen of the world, granted by the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, even spoke at the UN where he spoke about the future and sustainable development . Even the well-known Elon Musk is already designing his Robot, the Tesla Bot, the truth is that Elon Musk is one of the best-known entrepreneurs that bets more on artificial intelligence and machine learning. Its Tesla brand cars are the cars with the highest technology peak in the car industry, being cars that can predict accidents before they happen and with one of the safest auto-pilots.
AI can greatly help our lives, whether personal or in companies and even in medicine, providing better results and greater security in decision-making.
In our day-to-day, AI like Siri are already widely used to obtain information, such as the weather, answering any questions you may have and even turning off or turning on the lights at home. AI can also indicate the best work proposals, the most suitable products depending on what you research and purchased previously.
One of the first promises of artificial intelligence was a robot that could perform domestic tasks, eliminating the heavy and boring work of humans. Part of this promise has been fulfilled by the automatic vacuum, which can maneuver around obstacles like stairs, furniture and even cats. However, intelligent robots will not only clean your home, they will also be able to do jobs such as assembling furniture or taking care of children and pets.
In business/enterprises it can double the annual economic growth rate in 2035 by changing the nature of work and creating a new relationship between man and machine. The impact of AI technologies on companies is even expected to increase labor productivity by up to 40% by profoundly changing the way work is done and strengthening the role of people, aiming to increase business growth.
In medicine, artificial intelligence is being incorporated to help doctors detect diseases and save lives. Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles is pioneering the use of special software to analyze the heart and detect heart attacks before they occur. However, at the forefront of Artificial Intelligence medical technology are robotic surgery assistants, which assist surgeons by passing the necessary instruments during a procedure.
And for the environment? There are also AI’s that can help!
Climate change and its causes, such as pollution. They’re a big concern today, and artificial intelligence could be a solution to that. Robots and other devices are being developed to clean the environment and reduce the effects of air and water pollution. Sophisticated software programs will allow robots to distinguish between biological organisms and pollutants such as oil or hazardous waste. Smart software is also fighting air pollution directly in fuel-burning plants. Carbon dioxide, chemical pollutants and other gases are identified and captured before entering the chimney and ending up in our lungs.
