Imagine your favorite character is doing as you wish and the story moves in for a breathtaking climax just the way you want. It has been a revolutionary landmark step by Netflix. They have exhibited the courage of outgrowing the usual competition in OTT content and coming up with a new way of storytelling that opens up larger venues of competition. The concept is a finished product of rigorous analysis of customer behavior while browsing similar content.
Keeping the entertainment aside, the recently released song called ‘heartbreak’ is trending at number four in Apple Music charts. It is a pure result of sentimental analysis; text mining and rigorous intensive calculations by an artificial neural network which have determined the tune and tempo of the song that is most likely to be enjoyed by customers. These are all in-depth applications of artificial intelligence which are motivating a multitude of new-age professionals and undergraduates to build artificial intelligence as one of their core skills.
4. Superhuman doctors in healthcare
Recently, MIT-based scientists have come up with diagnostic solutions capable of predicting breast cancer up to 5 years from actual occurrence. The MRI scan and 3-D imaging are making it possible for artificially intelligent tools to scan through live and static images for breast cancer diagnosis. It is one of the most lucrative propositions is that AI is offering for the healthcare industry. Consequently, diagnosis is becoming a better and much more precise compared to the earlier times. Artificial intelligence has also moved a level up with artificially intelligent agents that are capable of diagnosing diseases and illnesses just with a computer-based interaction in the form of QA and experience description.
Artificial intelligence is certainly helping doctors and diagnostics and the upcoming years are sure to witness a superhuman doctor which is under rapid incubation. It is reported to be highly capable and well versed with all surgery techniques and it will take its long ride to maturity before it comes out in the market for public use.
5. Credibility analysis in finance
Have you ever imagined that no credit analysts, finance officials or actuaries but an artificial intelligence tool will decide if you deserve the credit card or any sort of credit instrument or not?
Yes, it is extensively acknowledged by the BFSI industry. Global financial organizations are using artificially intelligent tools and electronically procured behavior of individuals; apart from their assets and credit history which would usually define their total credibility. The ultimate objective is to save companies from burning cash in NPAs and lost money because of defaulters and denied payment.
6. Recipe suggestions and cookery & cuisine
It is quite undebatable that AI is capable of impacting our lives at an altogether different level but who thought it will also bring out innovations in cuisine and cookery field with branded pioneering of absolutely new dishes. The Play renowned chef and cuisine field thought leader collaborated with techies to build an artificially intelligent agent which will suggest a recipe that you have never seen before. It based on the type and quantity of ingredients available in the kitchen. Apart from the direct recipes which it can tell you in a jiffy, this opens up a whole new world of innovation in the cuisine and cookery field.
7. Extraterrestrial exploration
We all know that life is made up of five core elements. Different configurations and combinations of these elements make different life forms and give rise to various ecosystems. Artificial intelligence is catalyzing extraterrestrial exploration to help space scientists search for life on different planets. Based on the climatic activities and the natural resources around, artificially intelligent bots are being planned to be sent on several planets for becoming a frontier of the studies that will eventually determine if life exists on those planets.
You should not be surprised if someday artificially intelligent bots report that one of the moons of Saturn is capable of nurturing human life for a certain period in their calendar year. Yes, it can happen and artificial intelligence is broadening the avenues of exploration at a humongous scale.
