Industrial Applications for AI
While research into artificial intelligence (AI) has been going on for a few decades and there have been several breakthroughs, now is the time that it will explode into industrial workplaces. Google’s and Amazon’s research facilities are humming along making great strides in the application of AI technology for lifestyle management and home automation. The time is ripe to extend that tech into major industry. Businesses need to get on board now to ride the amazing wave that’s building.
Let’s consider some of the industrial applications for AI technology that are likely to make an impact in the near future.
Healthcare has already seen strong development in AI systems. Johnson and Johnson has received FDA approval for Sedasys, a portable system for automatically monitoring a patient, interacting by voice with him/her, administering anesthetics Read the full article →
AI in Lifestyle Management
Apple introduced artificial intelligence (AI) voice technology in the form of its personal assistant, Siri, over five years ago. Apple has since incorporated Siri in all its devices including iPhones, smart watches and Mac devices.
Since then competition has got hotter, with other providers upping their game to provide serious rivalry to Apple. Whereas design innovation has had mostly a mobile-first approach, indications are that this is fast moving to an AI-first approach for smart devices.
Of the major players in this arena, Amazon and Google have developed devices with intelligent assistants based on AI technology.
These devices are designed to assist with home automation. But their potential can extend much farther to where industrial applications for AI technology look incredibly exciting.
Amazon’s Echo Set the Standard
Amazon launched its Echo device to the public in June 2015. It is already an industry standard. Among other things, this smart AI device enables home automation.
Amazon Echo is connected to its intelligent voice-controlled personal assistant called Alexa. It needs a wireless internet connection to function and can be manually disabled or muted. Read the full article →
The Internet of Things (IoT) is experiencing exponential growth, a trend that will continue in 2017. The main stars of the show will undoubtedly be IoT gateways. They act as traffic controllers, directing the data flowing from connected automated devices to computing facilities.
A fundamental requirement for IoT growth therefore is the necessity for reliable IoT gateways. Without this the vital link between devices and computers cannot be guaranteed.
Industries Where IoT Gateways Will Play a Major Role in 2017
IoT growth in 2017 is likely to be most evident in the industries listed below. Robust and reliable IoT gateways Read the full article →
