AI is everywhere. From IoT-enabled devices to home appliances, industrial robots, autonomous vehicles, drones, mobile phones, and wearables, AI makes its presence felt and required in nearly everything. Promising to drive future user experiences that are immersive, continuous and conversational, AI applications are increasing by the day. The technology is expanding at a rapid pace to improve the adoption and implementation of these experiences.
What is AI?
AI or artificial intelligence is an interdisciplinary science concerned with building intelligent machines and software that can efficiently perform tasks that usually require human intelligence. Simply put, AI is intelligence demonstrated by machines that mimic the natural intelligence of humans (or animals).
What are the uses and types of AI?
AI is everywhere—as AI-driven natural language processing enabled virtual assistants such as Siri, Google and Alexa in your phone to spambots in your email and credit-card fraud detection software on websites. AI is also built into apps and devices to assist in self-driven systems, recommendations for products or speech recognition.
AI is typically classified into two different types—narrow and general. Narrow AI is all around us every day—in computers, mobile phones and devices that have learned how to carry out tasks without being programmed to do so. A popular example is automatically tagging people in photos on Google Photos and Facebook. General AI has still not moved out of the domain of movies and books of fantasy. General AI is an adaptable and flexible form of intelligence capable of carrying out tasks from haircutting to building websites or reasoning about topics by experience. A good example would be Skynet from the movie Terminator. AI is often used to tackle tasks that are too complex for humans to perform quickly.
AI in enterprise applications
Enterprises often face the challenges of sifting through large volumes of data. A popular example would be trying to gather meaningful and valuable insights from Twitter. On average, we send over 500 million tweets every day. Extracting valuable data from this data set is an enormous effort for humans and a fantastic field of research for AI. Finding trending hashtags and topics for a business can be valuable, and AI can help enterprises get this data for effective marketing or building better products.
AI has also found its way into content marketing and recommendation engines. Companies are now looking at content marketing to produce stories that boost traffic and enhance brand awareness. These stories are served to users as recommended articles with relevant content.
Customer service is another avenue where AI is showing immense growth potential. Chatbots that mimic customer service agents can reduce the amount of workload on actual customer service teams by up to 90%, answering redundant questions automatically and hand-holding customers so they can connect with a representative in the case of need.
How can AI help your business succeed?
We produce over 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day from sources such as IoT sensors in the home, social media posts, pictures, videos, purchase transactions, and GPS location data. This makes data more valuable than oil and can transform the way you do business. You can understand your customer’s needs, analyze trends and create better, more meaningful products for your customers. If you thought this is not valuable enough, back in 2014, Nucleus Research concluded that for every dollar spent on AI, returns had exceeded $13. That is 13 times per dollar. If you are a company that is planning to invest $10,000 in AI, you can do the math.
