Four Artificial Intelligence Trends to watch out for in 2019

In 2018, we saw a drastic change in the platforms, tools, and applications based on artificial intelligence and machine learning. These technologies not only impacted software and the Internet industry but also other sectors as well such as healthcare, automobile, manufacturing, legal, and agriculture.

Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, AR/VR- all these technologies have completely taken over how business is seen and done. Therefore, I have listed four Artificial Intelligence Trends and Technologies that will be seen in 2019.

1. Speech Recognition

Speech Recognition is the capacity of program or machine to understand words or phrases in different languages and improve them to a machine-readable format so that the human performed tasks can be performed by a machine.

Amazon’s Alexa is one of the latest and the best examples of Speech Recognition devices launched last year, making it easy for people to search for information on the internet and to conduct various actions. So, we can surely expect to see numerous speech recognition tools in 2019 as well. In fact, half of the world population is predicted to be using voice recognition technology in 2019.

2. Virtual Agents

A computer-generated virtual character that looks exactly like a human, Virtual Agent an online customer service provider to help serve customers better. Not a long ago, almost every business started using chatbots which is an AI-powered mechanism to help them answer a website visitor’s queries, get sales leads and aid with customer-specific queries. Whereas, in 2019, we can expect to see a more advanced version of them. Businesses will not just rely on chatbots; they will be creating advanced virtual agents- with a human-like body and personal touch to serve the customers just like a human customer care executive would do.

3. Smarter Retail Suggestions

It is used to describe a set of smart technologies that are created to offer the user a more notable, faster, safer and smarter experience while shopping online.

While shopping online, various companies like Amazon displays their product recommendations based on items they have shown interest in. This year, retail recommendations will be smarter and better.

4. Image Recognition

In relation to machine vision, image recognition is the ability to identify objects, places, people, writing and actions in images. The system uses machine vision with a camera and AI software to get image recognition goals.

Because of Artificial Intelligence, teaching computers to understand speech has been made possible. Image recognition has managed the computers to gain, process and analyze data from visual sources.

All in all, Artificial intelligence is transforming the world to be a more place to live. A decade ago, there was no hint of such technology but who knew that AI-fueled technology would be available just a few years from that time. So, I suggest that you also, as a business take advantage of these Artificial Intelligence trends for your business in 2019 to contribute in an innovative way.
