How (AI) Artificial Intelligence Will Impact Our Everyday Life

Artificial Intelligence, or AI as it is known, is the buzzword and a trending technology that promises to transform the way we live, be entertained and work. AI may not be apparent on the surface, but it is in the background and influencing our everyday lives.


Robots are nothing new. However, AI evolves and infuses robots with more intelligent capabilities. Take the case of Alibaba’s chain of restaurants in China that now use robots instead of waiters. The restaurant saves on wages it pays waiters, and customers enjoy the benefit of quick services, better food, and lower prices. The elderly and infirm need help with some routine tasks, and depending on someone is expensive. Humans can also prove unreliable, whereas robots can provide assistance to help elderly people enjoy independent lives. Robots can also monitor their physical and health conditions and alert doctors if necessary. The robotic manufacturing process results in products that have better quality and yet are priced lower. AI does improve the quality of life at different levels for different people.


Healthcare is becoming more expensive by the day, and with so much pressure on doctors, it is not surprising that several cases are misdiagnosed. Artificial intelligence and its subset machine learning can learn to quickly analyze medical data and arrive at diagnoses faster than doctors can and, sometimes, even identify issues that doctors can miss. That is about hospitals and patients. Talk about normal people, and the smart wearable is an AI-powered device that tracks your condition and helps you to maintain good health or even improve it.

Reduces efforts

People engage in everyday activities such as shopping online, switching on or off appliances in their homes and offices, emailing and a hundred other things where routine tasks must be repeated every day. Artificial intelligence helps in every way. Shop online, and the sites remember your preferences and make recommendations. Open your email account, and the intelligent software will divert spam and even classify mail according to rules you can set. Drive in traffic and AI will help find the shortest or least congested routes. Traffic management systems benefit by helping authorities gain predictive capabilities about rush hour traffic and other matters to smoothen flows. The good thing about AI now and machine learning is that systems learn from individual owners and adapt responses. If you wish to search for a product online, you need not pick up a smartphone and type in the keywords. Just speak them to Alexa or Cortana. You can hear or view the news and media you want with AI in the background. Everyone knows about Google’s self-driving car project; it is just a matter of time before they become a regular thing on roads. You issue a command, and the device does the rest. You may no longer have to enter a PIN if you use a credit card. Just showing your face will be sufficient. Will it make people lazy or use the saved time and effort for something better? While some jobs could be lost due to AI, humans can do things that AI can not now.

Crime and fraud

Shopping and emailing are mundane compared to the crime. You could be the next victim, and the perpetrator could escape scot-free. Not so with AI. AI is increasingly being used by financial institutions to detect anomalies in transactions and to identify attempts at fraud. AI in traffic or security cameras can easily identify people by faces and even sharpen up blurred photos to help law enforcement agencies. If life is safer and even more so, it will be largely due to AI’s contribution.

Lawyers and law

If one talks about crime, then lawyers are not far away. A typical lawyer must gather plenty of evidence, go through documents and then extract kernels of information that could help their client. It is a painstaking task. AI comes to the rescue by doing all this and with a precision that a human is not likely to achieve.

How does AI impact life?

As can be seen, AI is in all spheres of activities, from industrial to commercial to domestic and even military. How does this wave of AI impact life? For one, people are freed from the drudgery of routine and time-consuming tasks. They can use their brain power to do something better, more intelligent, and more satisfying for the soul. More people will enjoy the facility of much-improved healthcare services. People may see their lifespan extended. Offices become more productive with intelligent robotic assistants taking notes or carrying out routine functions, thereby reducing the employee load and freeing them to do more productive and satisfying tasks.

Summing Up:

The possibilities are limitless as hardware improves and new tools are available for AI developers to develop compact or complex apps, all of which, one way or the other, make life better. For businesses in any segment, it is a given that retaining specialists in AI development will take them to the next level, help reduce costs and add a touch of inventive innovation to help them stand out.
