1. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN HEALTH CARE
Today, technology has transformed the way patients interact with medical professionals and hospitals. AI has enhanced it’s efficiency in directing patients to the emergency department only when emergency care is necessary, without manual assistance. AI based systems manage hospital staff and reduce pressure on hospital staff by arranging appointments . All these management tasks apart, AI is going to be implemented in surgeries with the help of advanced robots. What you heard is true!!!!. “Artificial intelligence can help surgeons perform better” said Dr. John Birkmeyer, Chief Clinical officer at Sound Physicians. By 2020, we can see AI assisted robots in hospitals and they are going to offer medical services to patients.
2. DRIVER LESS VEHICLES WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
How many of you know, Hyderabad Metro Rail does not require pilots to run. L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad has inculcated advanced automatic train control system that could drive itself without assistance of pilots. But, that technology has not been deployed to run trains, because passengers might feel panic. All this is possible with AI. With AI, computer programs do what humans do. A massive amount of data is analyzed and processed to make machines think logically and perform human actions. Based on the commands by the intelligent agent, the autonomous vehicle can identify objects on the road, drive as per traffic and gets to the destination safely. Driver less vehicles are also provided with AI-based functional systems like voice and speech recognition, gesture controls and navigation system. The driving experience generated from every trip is recorded and stored in a database to enhance efficiency of the intelligent agent. Thereby takes perfect decisions for the next ride.
3. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN AGRICULTURE IS GETTING STARTED
We know very well that “Agriculture is the backbone of Indian economy”. Lot of research has been moving on both farming methods and in supplying agricultural products as per day to day increasing population. AI can reduce chances of crop failure due to improper farming activities. Most vital applications of AI in Indian agriculture fall into three main categories. Soil and Crop monitoring – Installing Internet Of Things (IOT) based sensors to observe soil and crop health so often. Predictive crop diseases – Several AI tools are being used to forecast the optimal time to sow seeds, get alerts from pest attacks and more. Sophisticated Supply Chain Management – AI replaces conventional food chain management systems with improved supplier quality, demand forecasting, inventory levels, procure to pay, order to cash, production planning, transportation management and even more.
4. CYBER SECURITY BLENDED WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
We already have advanced security systems to eradicate cyber threats. But with evolving hacker techniques, cyber security needs to be improved with the help of AI. Security analysts always strive to find solutions to new and emerging threats as well as to create awareness with day to day alerts. AI building blocks like biometrics, deep learning, security automation & orchestration, security analytics, machine learning and natural language processing can enhance security with deep analysis on present and future threats. Unbelievable fact is, attackers and hackers are also deploying AI based tactics to steal the information which should be counter attacked by only enhanced AI strategies.
5. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE POWERED SMART PHONES
“SIRI” in Apple iphones and “GOOGLE ASSISTANT” in Android mobile phones are the best examples, how effective AI has been interacting with users. Mobile based AI developments are under testing at all major tech companies. Those who have not been in the AI platform are expected to introduce smart phones into the market with special functions. Key features of smart phones AI include: face recognition, virtual assistants, device management, augmented reality, etc., However few among these are available today, they are not utilized up to the mark. 5G smart phones will be added with advanced AI features, which mean users can get complete benefits that have potential to collect, store and process real time data. The future is going to be smarter with AI integrated smart phones and mobile economy will grow tremendously by 2020.
