The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in day to day life is becoming more prominent as technology evolves and its popularity amongst consumers grows. This growth can be clearly seen by the rise in consumer spending on AI assistants such as Google Home and Amazon’s Alexa, and therefore we can say with confidence that AI will be around for a long time to come.
What is AI?
The term ‘artificial intelligence’ has been around for many years, however, it is referred to when speaking about driver-less cars, advanced computer programmes, AI assistants, as well as a piece of technology that can analyse huge amounts of data quickly. For businesses, this obviously opens up a world of opportunity, and countless technology organisations have been busy refining this technology to ensure it can answer a business’ requirements.
So, what does 2019 hold for AI, particularly with regards to its use in business? Below we will explore AI and what we expect to see over the coming 12 months.
AI in 2019
Advancements in assistants
Currently consumers tend to answer fairly simple questions to AI assistants, such as the weather, certain facts, operating your home’s lights, playing songs and much more. The ability to answer these questions is, in itself, a significant leap for technologic development, however this year, we expect these developments to move on even further. Technology experts predict that AI assistants will be seen in more and more places, from cars, to televisions to even general household appliances.
The use of technology within meetings has grown substantially in recent years, and AI looks set to provide an even better business meeting experience. Experts predict that voice to text transcription will play a vital role for AI, as well as scheduling meetings, voice recognition to identify participants and a whole host of other features. Making meetings more efficient will greatly improve the productivity of a business and relationships in the long run.
