7 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About AI [VIDEO]

Imagine going to a movie with a great storyline, and all the actors in the movie are AI humanoids. Sounds like a science fiction script? What if this actually happens in real life?

Such imaginations are promises that AI holds for us in the future. Let’s accept it. Artificial intelligence is already changing the world. Remember when IBM’s supercomputer Deep Blue defeated the former World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov back in 1997? Or when Claudico – an AI bot – played high-stakes Texas Hold’em with professional poker players in 2015?

Artificial intelligence is continuously pushing the limits of its capabilities and allowing us to reap the benefits. IDC has estimated that the AI market will grow more than $47 billion in 2020. AI is everywhere today, making a multitude of applications possible, be it monitoring heartbeat to detect abnormalities or creating remixes by using tracks from a streaming platform.

Although an AI-made world may not be here yet, it is surely coming our way. And with it will come a wave of disruptive technologies and new advancements, which will most likely revamp our lifestyle.

Watch the video (below), which highlights seven key areas where AI has already set its footprint.
