We still call them smartphones when it is clear that they should in fact be called intelligent phones. We should, by now, all be aware of how AI is becoming part of our everyday lives. High tech homes are installing intelligent software that dims lights, turn them on or off, plays music, and for the super rich there are robotic arms that provide you with your own personal chef to make you restaurant standard gourmet meals. But, the mobile phone will always remain the most accessible tech tool for the masses. It will continue to change the world as we know it. With Siri, Alexa, and Bixby we can’t miss the artificial intelligence already in daily our lives.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning will no doubt become more of a feature in our lives as the technology improves and adapts to our needs and the way that we live. Beyond 2018 the concept of a smartphone becomes pretty much redundant and far under estimates the important of AI in the world today. Within the next year digital assistances the likes of Siri and Alexa will only become more integrated into daily actions and provide valuable access to information. Advances in AI tech will be able to predict and anticipate your needs and questions before you ask them.
When it comes to artificial intelligence, there is no question that we have not yet begun to scratch the surface or imagine what is possible at home, in your down time, while shopping, or in the workplace. With other companies likely to follow suit or currently doing the same, Amazon is rumored to be working on improving Alexa and making her more location aware than ever before. With Amazon taking the lead, we should begin to see substantial developments in AI technology in 2018 and going into the future.
