Artificial Intelligence - Unconventional use cases which will be reality soon.

As our CEO, Dr. Sikka says AI - Pursuit of building something intelligent is as old as humanity. It has grown leaps and bounds from the time AI was discussed in 1956.

Since its inception for what determined a machine to be "intelligent" AI has evolved overcoming challenges during 90's and has entered its golden era.

Increasing investments from Nvidia on GPU and Google in TPU has made Moore's law more and more relevant in current scenario. Availability of these powerful processing units have accelerated Deep learning, Automate Machine learning and artificial neural networks.

Startups have revolutionized AI world and are providing disruptive solutions to solve complex business problems, these days every organization is adapting AI in some or other forms, may be as simple as for customer segmentation, social integration, personalized offers, supply change or building complex solutions for solving human problems around cancer treatment, self-driving cars and many more.

Over next couple of years maturity of AI will rapidly increase and more unconventional use cases will turn into reality for consumption.

Here is first in series of few such use cases in my view as Infrastructure, platform and products becomes available to implement.

Emotional AI:

Deep learning is the study of artificial neural networks related to machine learning algorithm containing more than one hidden layer similar to human brain. Based on deep learning AI can distinguish between dogs and cats, good vs criminals but how do you feel when you are treated from a robot, how does families feel when AI is able to identify depression in struggling students?

Among lot of other things AI is able to recognize faces, turn sketches to pictures, identify voice and many more.  

Days are not far when Siri or Alexa can detect emotions based on the sound of your voice and have a conversation, recommend a therapy session or send an alert to your loved ones to order a bunch of flowers to make you happy.

As human beings, we understand contexts and empathy. Not many AI models have it today. Companies that can implement these into their technology will have more success.

AR Chatbot:

Chatbot is common platform these days and everybody has a version of right from Microsoft, Facebook, Watson, Google or custom built.

People are probably going to be more drawn into engaging with chatbots which has personality; it has to be companion to whom people can engage with.

AI integrated with augmented reality can do wonders. If bots can be integrated with AI, emotional AI and AR then humans-robot interactions will take a huge leap forward. Humans often struggle with appropriate responses due to complexity of emotions, if technologies can decipher this then the output will be very impressive.
