Though as buzzwords, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) have existed in the world since many years, it is in 2017 that they have gone the whole nine yards to become technologies that are unleashing innovations, products and unlocking careers across the world. It is essential to understand how today, both AI and IoT are pervading into our daily lives, all so subconsciously.
Take manufacturing for instance – human workers in assembly lines are being replaced by robots, who can be programmed using AI. The smart phone division of Panasonic recently launched in India, an AI-application called Arbo that sits inside your phone and ‘understands’ your behaviour pattern to pull up apps and features based on your predictive behaviour. Enter the website of Royal Challengers Bangalore, one of the teams in the Indian Premier League and you are greeted by the RCB bot that chats with you and helps you buy tickets, get player statistics and allows you to device your own strategies – all based on a machine learning algorithm. Then there are applications like Siri and Cortana, even home-grown e-commerce players like Urban Ladder, that unlock the potential of VR, blended with AI to help you visualize furniture in your living room, in real time.
