Common uses of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Artificial intelligence has revolutionised the technology and resultantly the lives of everyone. With autonomous machine learning several activities are programmed to take place on meeting the certain condition without any human interference. One of the most simple and easy to understand application of AI is driverless vehicles. This technology gives a human-like sense to the machine with intelligence of performing different tasks at the right time.

Let’s explore few of its easiest and common applications for the ease of understanding.

Google’s AI-powered location predictions

Google maps are used by billions of smartphone users and it has become domestic application. You might wonder to think how a smartphone can predict such accurate fastest routes and show the real time activities taking place on the roads. It also shows alternate routes in case the main road is blocked for any reason. Well, thinking about it makes it a miracle and it is all because of the intelligence of AI.

AI autopilot for Commercial flights

Here is another miracle of AI from the airline perspective. All the commercial airlines use autopilots. According to a report from New York Times, 93% of an average flight is AI-steered with only 7% human involvement. The future of AI technology is bright and it may surprise us with more intelligent flight solutions in the days to come.
