While many of us still see artificial intelligence as something very distant that only appears in the best science fiction movies, the truth is that we are surrounded by Artificial Intelligence and its machine learning:
Learning on a daily basis
1- The content you see on social networks
No matter what your favorite social network is, they all use artificial intelligence and machine learning to decide which notifications you are most interested in.
The user experience you live in the network of networks is based on your previous behavior, which the AI previously registered to show you the information it thinks you are looking for, in this way it ensures that you return frequently.
2- Product recommendations in online stores
Internet giants like Amazon use AI to collect information about your behavior and purchasing preferences, in this way it can recommend products based on your tastes and needs. The company increases its sales by showing the user the products they really want and the buyer quickly finds what they are looking for.
3- Your voice assistant
It is estimated that only in the United States 24% of households enjoy a smart speaker such as Amazon Echo or Google Home. The systems of these wizards use natural language processing (NLP) to interpret the user’s words and respond to them effectively. Thanks to this, smart speakers can play your favorite music or remind you to take down the trash.
4- Our Smartphones
Smartphones use artificial intelligence in multiple ways, so you use it dozens of times a day without even realizing it.
Siri and the Google assistant already have this technology, but not only them: The portrait mode of your IPhone that allows you to improve the focus, uses artificial intelligence to find the right focus.
5- Customer service systems
Artificial chats are used to serve customers in simple consultations, guiding them easily and thus saving time and complications for the company and the consumer.
In the case of a bank, the chatbot can solve simple requests, for example showing the available balance in our account.
6- Spam Filters
One of the tasks of AI that users appreciate the most is the capture and derivation of the well-known spam or junk mail.
Instead of the user having to send the unwanted message to the spam section, now it is the email servers that automatically derive it using artificial intelligence. Each user has different preferences, so machine learning records which emails are really wanted for each account.
7- Home automation
More and more homes allow situations so unthinkable just a decade ago such as turning on the light by voice or entering our home without keys.
Home automation companies allow users to design their own Internet of Things. Domotic devices for the home can communicate with each other without the need for human action.
