“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from Magic” - Arthur C. Clarke
iven the latest developments in technology, it is now possible for us human beings to be able to not only command but communicate with machines. We have Artificial Intelligence to thank for this! This technology has infused intelligence into machines and made them ‘think like humans’ as well. Let us have a look at some of the ways in which this technology has proven to be beneficial for us.
#1. Reducing Complexity for Humans
The advancing technology has ensured that humans do not get involved in repetitive work and the tasks that are highly complex to remove human error from the equation completely. This way, the tasks that are more creative in nature that need more input can be focussed on by us. This way, the result turns out to be much more effective and the work is also performed efficiently.
#2. Hi AI, How Will the Weather be Like Tomorrow?
The field of climate informatics is another major field in which AI has proved its worth. A lot of companies (which are increasing by the way) already have and are in the process of deploying AI as a weather forecasting tool.
#3. A Perfect Disaster Recovery Plan
Numerous events have been observed over the years where a lot of harm has been done to human life as well as wildlife all because nobody saw it coming. Well, with the help of Artificial Intelligence, the probability of disasters if not completely vanished has reduced considerably. These techniques have proven to be useful for monitoring any changes in the natural flow of the climate leaving room for us to prepare for the situation.
#4. Minimal Scope for Errors
Due to the introduction of the concept of Artificial Intelligence in our day-to-day lives, the number of errors which we might end up ignoring leading to a huge loss in business have reduced considerably. Human beings are prone to make mistakes since it is very “human” for us to overlook things at time that might be important. However, these machines have the capability of catching those very minor/major mistakes and making our lives so much easier helping us save millions!
#5. The Best Advisor-Cum-Friend
In a way, AI is our best advisor-cum-friend for it helps you make fast decisions, automate half the complex processes that might end up taking seconds to finish instead of putting in a manual labour of 3 hours and play our favourite songs when we are too lazy to get up.
#6. Imagination Level at its Peak
Artificial Intelligence has made it possible for us to imagine putting a machine together/design an equipment etc. without actually doing it in reality. Confused? Well, to put it in simpler terms, what AI does is help you witness what your room would look like when you put together all that stuff that you have been thinking of buying before you actually go ahead and spend money on it only to regret later. This saves both time and money and also makes you really sure of whatever it is that you are planning to do.
#7. Our Fitness Buddy
Be it the fitbit tracker on our hands or the mobile app in our pocket tracking every move, the condition of our heart, the kind of diet that needs to be followed, AI has made us fitness freaks. We have become aware about what is going on in our body and how can it be made healthy with the help of this very technology. A loud round of applause, right?
Due to the evolution of Artificial Intelligence, our lives have definitely changed for the better. Unknowingly, we have become a lot more dependent on the machines around us and whether we accept it or not, these advancing technologies have surely turned our lives around and made them better.
