With every new invention, mankind is getting closer at the attempt of replicating nature in the best possible ways. Artificial Intelligence, in the simplest words, is technology that has the closest resemblance to a human brain.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, the two most outspoken buzzwords of the 21st century are often confused to be the same but there is a significant difference between them. Machine learning can be regarded as one of the most hardworking subsets of Artificial Intelligence.
If we consider Artificial Intelligence to be the brain of a system, Machine Learning is its ability to learn. Machine Learning allows Artificial Intelligence to learn from a plethora of data available.
The Machine Learning market is expected to be worth over 8 billion USD by 2022 and let us look at what the upcoming years in this industry is going to look like.
Automation is one of the major reasons for the development of technology to the stage we currently face. Machine learning doesn’t aim any different in this sector. From automating production to automating commute in the form of self-drive vehicles, there is no denying the fact that Machine Learning has a bright scope in the future.
An AI bot in a restaurant can remember regular customers’ likes and dislikes and it doesn’t end with that. People wouldn’t even have to wait in long queues at a fast food chain like McDonald’s as everything can be automated.
A lot of human-intensive tasks that require decision making based on the current scenario will be overtaken by AI which is trained by Machine Learning to tackle thousands of like-faced instances.
Our brain has over 100 billion neurons, which are nerves constantly transmitting signals for our body to function. The neural network is a computer system that works much in the same way and allows additional computational abilities to perceive images, text, and voice by understanding the elements in it.
We are already talking to Siri, Google Assistant, and Alexa on a regular basis and they are getting better with time.
They are becoming more personalized each day and the credit for it goes to Machine Learning which processes all the data we provide to these systems as they build a model around our personas.
In no time, most businesses will have an Artificial Intelligent communication system to interact with customers based on their personas and help solve their problems; all of this without any human intervention.
Natural Language Processing (NLP), when mastered, will be a breakthrough and will fill the human-technology communication gap once and for all.
Life with Machine Learning
Our lives have become so fast and with technology, we wish to make it faster. Machine Learning aims at speeding processes in every field and the best part being – it’ll reduce the factor of bias which seems to be carved right into the human mindsets.
Home security, which is a major issue in most urban settings would significantly improve with better image processing and Machine Learning. Computers will not only alarm you during an attack but will also be able to prevent possible threats in the surrounding.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have been doing wonders and there’s a long way to go. The gut feelings humans have is no longer going to be the uniqueness of the Homo Sapiens as our AI counterparts will have gut feelings too.
We are building days when they might take over us. Only future will decide if that’s good or bad, we are up for an exciting ride to building a whole new world.
