What you don't know about AI yet

Do we live in an early 2000’s movie? Cars drive themselves, books are written by computers, there is omnipresent personalization and we talk with bots on chats not being aware about it.

Maybe we are not experts in AI development, but we carefully observe its evolution. Elon Musk says that it's vastly more risky than North Korea. Should we be scared of artificial intelligence? Well, it’s year 2017. We might not be conscious of whether we are texting with chatbot or a human. Since 1990 there has been organised The Loebner Prize - an annual competition that awards computer programs, which are considered to be the most human-like.

Could AI replace God?

There’s a big chance that you’ve already heard this name: Anthony Levandowski. Former Google and Uber engineer founded his “own church”, an organization called “Way of the future”. Its motivation is to develop and promote the realization of a godhead based on artificial intelligence (according to “Wired”). Will AI-creature judge our sins? Scientists say that it is not possible in the near future, because the algorithms would have to be really advanced and complicated. It looks like a story from a sci-fi book, but you never know.

Probably our very first experience with AI was just watching Matrix, though it isn’t only a movie thing now. Its’ significant impact on our lives and the various industries is getting bigger and bigger. We are surrounded by machine learning technology, which is a branch of AI.

But how does it work?

Machine learning is based on experience of the program, instead of on hard codes. It needs data, a lot of data to learn from it and adapt it. Fortunately, we create 2,5 mld gigabytes of data daily - so that gives a wide scope to use it somehow. By the year 2020, about 1.7 megabytes of new data will be generated every second for every person in the world.

AI is used in many enterprise solutions and according to Narrative Science 62% of organisations will be using AI by 2018. It is an impressive number, isn’t it?

Let's talk about the present

Most used AI enterprise solutions and its examples

  • voice recognition and response - 32%

  • machine learning - 24% (future growth!)

  • virtual personal assistants - 15%

  • system for decisions support - 8%

  • automated responding / communications - 5%

  • analytics applications - 5%

  • robotics - 4%

  • all of the above - 8%


Surprising AI use cases

  • Ara, a toothbrush that contains artificial intelligence inside (https://www.kolibree.com/en/ara/)

  • generating AI rap lyrics (http://deepbeat.org/)

  • beer brewing by AI (uses machine learning algorithms to improve its taste from the online feedback) (http://intelligentx.ai/)

  • robotic bees (https://wyss.harvard.edu/technology/autonomous-flying-microrobots-robobees)

  • content curation - brands like Netflix use this tool as providing recommendations for their customers

  • Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram filters use neural networks to modify your face in a funny way (https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/ai-marketing-use-cases)


How can you improve your business using AI?

  • AI is a great tool to analyze and generate big amounts of data. Generating valuable leads has never been easier. AI generates much more leads than ongoing marketing methods. It will help you to cut costs and save time.

  • Personalization and targeting help to give your customers what they exactly want. Your marketing strategy should be based on it if you want to get more conversions.

  • Build your relationship with the customer through chatbots, which you can make so human-like now. Intelligent assistants are time (and money) saviours.

  • Think about engaging app that uses machine learning. The success is almost certain.
