AI in Lifestyle Management

ai technology industrial applicationsApple 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 →
