The artificial intelligence (AI) technologies market is booming. Everyone is talking about how artificial intelligence is changing multiple aspects of our daily lives and the companies.
Different companies have decided to invest in AI to make their business grow in different ways.
But… What is Artificial Intelligence?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines. These processes include learning (the acquisition of information and rules in how to use it), reasoning (using the rules to reach approximate or definite conclusions), and self-correction.
You are most likely using services that utilize AI without even knowing about it. Do you feel related to this scenarios?
1 – Virtual agents
You’ll find yourself chatting with an agent, assuming you are interacting with a human, while in reality you are talking to a chatbot!
A chatbot is an automated computer agent or program capable of interacting with humans. This type of technologies are currently being used for automated customer service and support.
2 – Voice recognition
If you are a Google Voice or Amazon Alexa user, you’ll be able to experiment in first hand AI applied to voice recognition.
Every day, more and more systems incorporate the transcription and transformation of human language into useful formats suitable for computers.
Speech recognition is currently being implemented into voice-response interactive systems and mobile apps.
3 – Biometrics
If you have an iPhone X and utilize their facial recognition system to log in, then congratulations! You are almost an “expert” in AI applied to biometrics.
This technology deals with the identification, measurement and analysis of physical aspects of the body’s structure and human behavior. It allows more natural interactions between humans and machines. It’s application in the areas of security, marketing and sales are practically unlimited.
4 – Machine Learning Platforms
If you are a fan of online shopping in Amazon or Netflix, then surely you noticed this providers suggest you products that are likely to be of you interest … but how!?
Thanks to Machine Learning applied in comparison to usage patterns of the rest of their millions of users, they are capable of precitng and recomending products and m ovies that you are likely to buy and watch
Machine learning is a subdiscipline of computer science and a branch of artificial intelligence. Its goal is to develop techniques that allow computers to learn. Through algorithms, APIs (application programming interface), development and training tools, big data, applications and other machines, machine learning platforms are gaining more and more traction every day.
In Cualit, for instance, you can experience how we applied Machine Learning technologies by downloading Punta Cable App. It automatically learns about each user’s preferences, and optimizes the programming guide, recommending shows that are more likely to be of interest for the user based on his preferences.
