If there's one thing you've learned so far, it's that artificial intelligence is going to be one of the world's most disruptive technologies. You've probably seen how early AI iterations have infiltrated your life, altering the way you create and engineer things, consume information, and even interact with people.
Though some individuals are concerned about AI, even going so far as to warn that it may lead to the extinction of humanity, the general view is that the coming technology is a good thing. We've looked at how artificial intelligence will affect several sectors in the next decades. So, today we'll look at how artificial intelligence (AI) will begin to change things in the home. The problem is, there's a strong possibility it has already happened. But first, let's go through the basics.
What is Artificial Intelligence?
Artificial intelligence, in a nutshell, is the replication of human intellect in computers that are programmed to think and act like humans. AI may also be used to any computer that has human-like characteristics like learning and problem-solving. Narrow AI and Artificial General Intelligence are two broad types of developing technologies.
Narrow AI works in a confined environment, excelling at a particular activity. It is not, however, always "human intellect." Narrow AI, also known as Weak AI, is present in everything from your phone to robotics. Artificial General Intelligence is the type of AI to be careful about. This type of AI, often known as powerful AI, is similar to what you may see in science fiction movies. This AI will take decades to develop.
What is it about AI that makes it so appealing? AI can make a judgement based on a large number of data points. This is critical in today's data-driven society. In principle, greater analysis of the world's data, including your data, leads to a higher overall quality of life. AI will make your home life much more interesting. Here's how.
AI is going to turn your kitchen into a Michelin star restaurant
Smart kitchen equipment and smart speakers are becoming increasingly popular in kitchens throughout the world. You might already have one. Whether it's a coffee machine or an oven, these devices are always developing, learning your routines and habits in order to serve you with hot meals, coffee, and other items. But this is only the beginning.
Your new smart fridge could be able to detect when food is running short and arrange orders for you. Better still, AI might assist you in preparing the perfect dinner with only the ingredients in your refrigerator. Companies like Plant Jammer and Chefling are assisting consumers in making tasty cuisine with the materials they have on hand by combining AI with gastronomical learning. Facebook has created an image-to-recipe generating technology that allows anyone to reverse engineer a recipe by just photographing the meal.
Finally, at home, individualised eating experiences will be commonplace. Your future AI-powered kitchen may supply you with tasty meal dishes tailored to you based on your biological data recorded on a smart gadget. Even better, your kitchen can be able to prepare the food for you. Moley will be able to assist you. These wonderfully designed robotic arms, dubbed the world's first robotic kitchen, can create meals for you at the same level as a top chef.
The way you experience entertainment will change
Siri, Google Assistant, Cortana, and Alexa have already entered your house, changing the way you interact with your TV and streaming services by allowing you to manage almost anything with your voice, gradually replacing remotes. These gadgets, like the kitchen example, are learning your viewing patterns and eventually guiding you on what to watch. It is, however, going to go considerably further.
Hisense has unveiled VIDAA-AI, a next-generation Artificial Intelligence television system. This television claims to develop an intelligent advertising platform based on real-time object identification, to produce media clips from a description, and, of course, to understand your interests and preferences on a frighteningly intimate level.
The name of the game is hyper-personalization, and this is a trend that will appear frequently on this list. Artificial intelligence may eventually be able to generate personalised cinema experiences for you. When combined with another new technology, such as virtual reality, AI may be used to evaluate some of your previous favourite horror films, resulting in a personalised horror experience that may be a bit too close to home. We've already seen AI break into the film industry.
You are going to have a lot more fun with your games
You may like the game business as it is, or you may want to see some significant changes. The game business is changing, but at a slower pace on the consumer side, and it is being pushed by artificial intelligence. Even in a fictional world, developers are utilising AI to create more immersive and realistic experiences. The creation of the highly anticipated AAA game Cyberpunk 2077 relied heavily on artificial intelligence.
Aside from more realistic gameplay, AI will have a significant influence on the gaming business. First, AI will aid creators in creating games that alter as you play, according to your preferences. AI is also being utilised to improve the general appearance of vintage games, which is especially useful if you have ancient games that you'd like restored. Finally, anticipate personalised gaming experiences at home.
AI may be used to study your playing patterns, genres, and favourite challenges to produce the best tailored gaming experience, just like it does with your home theatre.
Enhanced health and fitness at home
The ability to properly monitor patients at home with real-time data from afar might be transformative. Going far beyond the Apple watch you're wearing right now, healthcare practitioners may use AI's predictive capabilities to identify individuals who are at danger of sickness or damage. This would not only offer physicians greater authority, but it would also relieve some of the strain on healthcare systems during flu season, perhaps saving lives. Current AI technologies are being used by companies such as Gyant, Medopad, and Chonisense Medical to care for the elderly and chronic patients.
Giving you real-time information about potential health hazards may enable you to live a long and healthy life. The ultimate objective is for everyone to have complete access to their medical records. However, for this to be fully successful, technologies such as 5G and the Internet of Things must become more widely used.
Your home will become more environmentally friendly
There is no disputing that people, particularly in our homes, can be wasteful. Having better control and understanding of our trash and energy usage, on the other hand, might help us become more ecologically friendly in the long run, saving you money. AI energy-saving systems are yet to be widely embraced, despite the fact that they are currently accessible in various regions across the world with items to buy.
However, there are some apparent advantages. AI systems can help you break down your energy use, identify operational inefficiencies, and even locate the ideal location for your future solar panels. Homes will ultimately be able to anticipate when you use and don't use energy down to the second, assisting you in energy conservation.
