Where is artificial intelligence applied and most relevant? Almost everywhere where there is a need to do better than a man and do not get tired. The very first, simple, and clear example is smart assistants, chatbots, automated support services.
Moreover, if earlier such programs were algorithmic, now a step is being made towards a full-fledged AI, that is, to a situation in which people may not even suspect that someone you contact is AI. In this article, we will review fields where AI proves to be the most relevant.
AI can prove itself in the field of graphics – many both public and private services allow you to work with images. More precisely, it’s not easy to work, but to carry out a full cycle – from creating images to their intellectual processing. In particular, there is a service that allows generating illustrations for texts based on an analysis of the contents of the texts. It looks interesting even in the format of an idea. AI can remove the background by independently selecting objects in the foreground.
Also, AI can be successfully applied in the field of games and entertainment. More precisely, it successfully registered there for a long time, simply because this industry was and remains a powerful driver for the development of intelligent algorithms in particular and AI in general. In this example, we can provide an instance of the online casino industry, where the new online casino games have RNG developed by artificial intelligence. It is no more needed for humans to think about algorithms because AI does everything for them.
Therefore, if we move to the example of chess, even starting it on the phone, today it’s impossible to say precisely what exactly plays against you: just an algorithm or artificial intelligence.
AI can be successfully used in finance, as a special case – in the banking sector to detect various cases of fraud, control transactions, etc. We are not talking about filters that catch the simplest cases of fraud. We are talking about an algorithm that learns and identifies complex cases and is able to respond to these kinds of threats, both when paired with a person, and independently.
In addition, in the financial sector, AI can be used to analyze trends and predictions based on statistics. In particular, such analytics will come in handy for generating various kinds of forecasts (for example, the exchange rate). True, it is worth noting that, like the “human” forecast, AI may come true – or it may not come true.
AI is also common in medicine. AI can be used to diagnose, create treatment plans, etc. In contrast to the financial or personnel sectors, in medicine, everything is much more serious – losses, if anything, are measured “in people”.
Another area where AI is used quite intensively is cars. Unmanned vehicles are the most striking representative of this segment. And various assistants. For example, parking assistants, early warning systems about possible dangerous situations, and others that cannot be rigorously algorithmized, and here AI comes into play. Manufacturers, however, more often claim that their systems are with elements of AI. Perhaps this is true, and in these systems, there are both rigorous algorithms and AI.
In addition to the actual cars, AI can also be useful for adjusting traffic. Information from both cameras and navigators is used as input. Based on the AI data, it can choose the optimal mode of operation of traffic lights and the opening of reverse bands. And in the most advanced cases – to control the movement by turning on and off the temporary signs.
Home Use Issues
More and more often in everyday life, we meet artificial intelligence, for example, in a smart home system. It can unlock doors based on an analysis of faces or, as an option, open the gates in front of cars of certain brands with a specific number, or adjust the temperature in the room, adapting to the preferences of the owners, control children and pets, select music for the mood that he and reveals by characteristic signs.
AI can also monitor cleanliness and order, for example, start a robot vacuum cleaner at a time when there are no owners, or call emergency services if it detects a serious threat to the life and health of people.
Of course, household AI is still very young. Well, electricity also gradually came into our lives, and what seemed like a toy for the rich in the early 1900s became commonplace in the 2000s.
In this article, we talked about only a few areas of application of AI. The use of AI in heavy industry, manufacturing, agriculture, and many other industries has remained outside the scope of the article. But this is not important, but the fact that AI is not just becoming a trend – it is becoming a part of our life, that part, without which after some time it will be impossible to imagine the world – just as, for example, now we no longer imagine the world without the Internet.
