The world of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) is quickly gaining momentum as innovative technologies continue to be introduced, and the level of global interconnectedness among the general public and multiple areas of industry and business increases. Since the idea to develop intelligent thinking machines was first introduced in 1300 A.D. by Raymond Lull (not to mention its references from antiquity found in the mythology of Greco-Roman, Egyptian and Babylonian times), recent advancements in A.I. technology have transformed the IT/High Tech sectors, which are developing an increasingly interdependent bond with A.I. as reliance on the internet and mobile/portable media devices with online accessibility grows among the mass-public —impacting businesses and multiple industrial sectors in the process. Through intricate algorithms designed to further increase A.I. capability to mimic the neural pathways of the human brain and its capacity for ‘cognitive computing’ and ‘machine learning’ to arrive at and implement independent decisions, A.I. technology is now being integrated at an ever-faster rate into IT products and services—such as laptops, PCs, smartphones, tablets and other portable devices, as well as smart homes and the transportation industry among many others. Automatic self-driving cars as well as Robotic hotel receptionists and restaurant waiters are a great example of how A.I. is being implemented in the ‘smart world’ industry.
A.I. personal assistants deployed via voice interfaces have revolutionized customer and client engagement, all to the benefit of customer satisfaction and enduring customer loyalty. Consumers have benefited from the many cloud services like Google Drive, SoundCloud, Spotify, Amazon’s AWS, online game servers, and A.I. voice interfaces like Siri – which have simplified customer experience while A.I.’s capacity to connect all your online media devices across a broad range of applications has made it easier for both providers and consumers to find what they are looking for in a highly saturated market with too many competing vendors—whether it be a product, service or business solution.
With its ability to analyze, process and filter information simultaneously and in real-time through processes like Knowledge Management and through Cloud computing services, it has optimized the productivity level of companies from multiple industries by reducing bureaucracy and budget costs, improving collaboration among company sectors and promoting faster decision-making, while also promoting environmental sustainability in the process and offering a wide spectrum of opportunity for employment from all the areas of the IT/High Tech/Cloud Tech/Telecommunications and Business sectors—including legal and financial analysts, lawyers, professional consultants, and more. In fact, the past several years have seen a surge in A.I. companies for which there is now a high demand as integration with the IT/Computer sectors is now seen as a natural step in the evolution of innovative technologies; many A.I. companies, such as Expertsystem, that specialize in artificial intelligence software and applications are now offering their services to a broad array of industries—including bigger companies as well as small businesses who have recognized the importance of A.I. as a useful tool in eliminating excessive data noise and condensing project-oriented information that can give them a greater competitive edge and help them anticipate changes in customer preference and adapt accordingly. It is in fact the predictive potential of A.I. which will boost the world industries—from healthcare, transport, banking, travel, and so on. To fully understand the full practical and beneficial implications of A.I. use for the general public, let us look at the medical sector especially, where A.I. full-body monitoring devices will even make it possible to predict a heart attack hours or days before it occurs, and also be able to respond and provide therapeutic treatment on the spot.
