Since 90’s, Artificial Intelligence has been a buzzing word in Technology, thanks to Alan Turing for the self-learning concept and from back then, many researchers & scientists have tried to make AI in a way to reduce the workload & to make the automation more meaningful. But, the complete automation hasn’t achieved yet, and the algorithms that are making the work now are all command-oriented and not self-learning.
Well, in future the automation will work in a different way. Using the AI & the self-learning algorithms, we can train the robots/ devices to learn more about the work clearly. This can also help AI to take the decisions on their own and respond back to the work.
In the coming years, the Artificial Intelligence will be evolved to a stage where it won’t need any help from humans like taking commands and they are made to take the decisions on their own. So, let’s check out the 5 predictions on how Artificial intelligence will change the future of Automation.
Future of Automation with Artificial Intelligence – 5 Predictions
1. Virtual Digital Assistants
Now, everyone’s using one or more personal virtual digital assistance on their smartphones. It can be either Cortana or Siri, they show the results based on pre-defined algorithms but they are learning from your queries. So, In future, they will be at a stage to take self-decisions and show you personalized results. Sooner, these virtual digital assistants will be evolved to a stage where they will take care of all your unattended emails, remind you about pending tasks and shares the logics how to finish them quickly etc. Already Viv labs showcased their own virtual digital assistant which made them acquired by Samsung!
Future is always changing, and the possibilities are seemingly more, so it’s up to the user to train the Artificial Intelligence-based virtual digital assistance to make things on automation.
I may have talked about AI in finishing your exams, essays & homework, but this is not the case of automation, it’s just helping you finish your work :p but that doesn’t make sense. Anyhow, As of now, there are only a few cases where we saw an Artificial Intelligence based robot wrote articles, but it took so much time for them to write with a human touch. Still, they are not human-friendly and definitely a human proofreader required to correct the article. But, in future, AI’s will be writing all the news articles, case studies, instructional design articles, safety guide articles etc. thereby reducing the work for human writers. It is also possible for AI to write non-fiction novels as Google already started feeding their AI with romantic novels to make it understand the sentiment, emotions in the novel.
If everything goes well, we will soon see a small-sized revolution in journalism.
3. Self Driving
Not just Google or Tesla, even Nvidia has entered the self-driving competition and showed what it can do! Self-driving cars are still evolving and they are not fully automated as of now. Even Tesla made a rule to always place their hands on steering while driving the car on autopilot as the algorithms that make the self-driving is not as conscious as human. But, they are slowly learning how a driver acts when he was thrown in a bad situation. In future, it is possible to see self-driving cars without a human in the driver seat and this will also reduce the traffic as AI’s will be programmed not to jump signals, follow traffic rules etc.
Not just cars, most of the public transportation will be taken over by Artificial intelligence.
Hope someday, we will see an accident-free road!
4. Google Search Engine
Everyone knows how much complexity involves in the working of Google search engine, and moreover there are many algorithm updates rolled out to keep the search results free from spam. But, every time when they release an update, black hat hackers are coming with tools that can cheat the algorithms and make the rankings at the first page again. To fix all these things, Google rolled out an AI-based algorithm update called Rank brain which self-learns and alters the results based on several ranking signals.
So, how automation is involved in this! As I said, it is a self-learning algorithm which keeps on updating itself on real-time, you will soon see spam-free search results and gives you a chance to get the answer for your query in the first page or even on the first result itself. The rank brain is already rolled out last year and this year it was rolled out completely, now the AI-based algorithm is learning the changes that we [humans] do to alter the rankings. So, sooner you will see ranking dips!!
5. Sales & Marketing
If there’s one category which keeps on evolving is sales & marketing, as it is the main medium for every business. There were many changes in the marketing and it is still evolving. Now, every company is more dependent on online than offline. Digital marketing is playing a key role in promoting every business now. In future, we will soon see AI-based marketing. Let me tell you how this happens.
If some company says it won’t sell your personal data, then don’t believe in that. Even if they don’t see your data, they will make use of your data to market other companies products. A good example can be Facebook Ads, AdWords etc. On the search results & on your Facebook Timeline, you will see targeting ads based on your search. I know, it’s kind of invading your privacy, but that’s how marketing will work in future. Companies don’t want to throw a stone on a bunch of fruits, so one will fall, they want to target each fruit with a different stone, so they can get all the fruits. But, don’t worry! there are many ways to protect your privacy and it is also possible to stop sending the data for brands & companies. I will soon come with an article about this, as of now let’s check out how sales will work on automation.
Sales, the only thing that is driving the businesses into the profitable way. There are many CRM tools to filter out the best possible leads for your sales, but still, they are not automated. Either you have to do the filters manually, or write a macro to filter out automatically, but there’s a chance to miss out a few potential leads. Well, there are already AI-based bots like Einstein [salesforce], Watson [IBM] etc. working rigorously and on automated to show the best possible potential leads that will surely turn into leads. Still, these bots are learning and soon they will evolve to a stage to make everything on an automated basis.
Let’s just imagine a single AI for both sales & marketing working on automation, and sending you just the potential leads, so you can just make a call and get deals done? isn’t that gonna be a win-win situation for the sales & marketing team!
The possibility of combining AI with our daily things will surely gonna make a difference, not just in a business way but also in our lifestyle. This is my prediction on how future will be if we give Artificial Intelligence to power our stuff and do things on automation.
