Artificial intelligence technology will revolutionize every area of human lives if well exploited by app developers. Here are some of the areas where technology has already made a tremendous impact.

Gaming apps

App developers have developed so many gaming apps that are built on artificial intelligence. In most of those games, you can either play with fellow players or play with computer and the response of the game itself depends totally on your own input. This is exactly where artificial intelligence comes to play.

Offering 3D graphics makes the games super interesting and immersive. In fact, the gaming industry has witnessed more apps than any other industry yet app developers are still developing more apps.

Chat bots

There are several websites with chat bots now. Once you visit any of the websites, the chat bots will ask if you need any help. The bots are usually backed with a large database of information. According to how top app development companies usually program the bots, their reservoir of knowledge often includes answers to all frequently asked questions. So when a customer asks a question, the bot in question will quickly search its database for the answer to the question.

Of course, it is not possible that bots will have answers to all questions. This is how app developers usually program chat bots to handle questions they can’t answer. When any customer asks a question that bots can’t answer, they will present a phone number for the customer to call. At the same time, bots will send the question to backend. This is for backend team to be able to upload the database of knowledge with the answer to the very question in case another customer asks the same question again.

Interactive giant display units

This is the new level that app developers have taken advertising to, with app development. Of course there have been several giant digital and physical billboards but none of them could respond to touches like the new ones.

App developers made this one a 55 inch mobile device. So, it has all the features of a mobile device. The only feature it may not have is the SIM slot. So it may not be able to receive or make calls and it may also not be able to receive and send SMS.

However, viewers of any video being showed on it can actually interact with it via the screen. It answers questions within 6 milliseconds. It is also connected to internet so products can be ordered on it. Most importantly, it does not require any salesperson. It does the job of a digital salesperson itself. What made it happen is artificial intelligence.

Factory robots

A lot of factories now make use of robots instead of humans. A lot of people are not happy about this development as they feel that it will eventually lead to a global employment crisis. One cannot blame employers. Hiring robots is much more cost effective.

Robots don’t earn salaries and allowance and neither do they call in sick or go on leave. They don’t get bored doing the same job over and over again and most importantly, a single robot can handle the task of about 20 men with higher speed and accuracy. Robots cannot slip and fall. If they get involved in an accident, they won’t seek any compensation. So, the question is, if you were an employer, won’t you go for a robot when you find out that it will save you millions of dollars yearly.

Self-driven cars

Another great application of artificial intelligence is the design and creation of the much awaited self-driven or robotic car that is billed to hit the road in 2020. Imagine having to sit down in car without a driver and it will take you to your destination.

While a lot of people are really excited about it, others believe that it will lead to a massive job loss for drivers as car rental companies will definitely take advantage of it to save cost. The good side is that the robot car lacks emotion and as such it cannot be impatient so it won’t over-speed and neither will it break traffic regulations. That way, the number of accidents will be reduced greatly. Even the case of driving under influence will be reduced tremendously if not totally eliminated.

Robot wolf

Several farmers are having problems with animals eating their crops. However, there seem to be a solution to that. Some robotic engineers have created what can be called a robot wolf or robo-wolf. It looks exactly like a wolf and acts like one. When it was used to guide a piece of farmland for some days, no animal could go near the farm. So, it is a good idea and plans are on to create the wolf in commercial quantity.

Web scraping applications

Web scraping is the process for extracting large volumes of data from different websites with the use of a tool called website scraper. The extracted data could be saved in a designated folder or any other location. It could also be saved to a database in a table or spreadsheet format.

Content of most websites can only be viewed using a web browser. You can’t save a copy for your personal use. Your only option is to copy the content manually and paste it elsewhere. Apart from being tedious and frustrating, it is also time-consuming. Imagine having to copy all the content of a 200-paged website. It will take you days.

However, web scraping is the method of automating this process. Instead of manual copying, web scraping applications or robots will do the job in a very short time. This will save you a lot of pain, efforts and time. It will also offer higher accuracy as you may omit some content if you copy them manually.

The application has the ability to scrape different elements of data from multiple web pages of different websites as you require. Currently, there are two main types of website scraping applications. There are custom built ones for a specific purpose or websites. On the other hand, there are general scrapers that can be configured to work with any website. Whichever one you opt for, you only need to click a single button to extract and save some data on your local computer.

Due to the fact that the cost of a custom built
application is on the high side, a lot of people prefer to go for generic web
scraping application.
