There’s no question that things have come quite far since the early days of the IoT – Internet of things and AI – artificial intelligence. Today, everything seems to work on smart cloud data servers and computation statistics. With the combination of the two technologies, today, things are moving toward a better and more innovative future.
These technologies are touching all industries and virtually all aspects of life. While the combination of IoT and AI is still in its early stages, there’s no question that things are changing. Keep reading to find out what’s coming in 2019 and how AI and IoT together will impact your life and your future.
Right now, real time data is used for processing operations, using a cloud-based server along with a centralized information center. With Fog Computing, calculation metrics are set to move to the smallest parts of devices and these will be intelligent enough to help assess situations, calculate risks and make corrective moves on its own. When complete, the operational summary is sent to the cloud and remain on record.
There are already devices you can control via your smartphone, allowing you to control what’s going on in your home – even when you are away. You can lock doors, turn on and off lights, adjust your thermostat and more. In 2019, expect to see even more advances in this already innovative technology.
This is true for smart homes that have IoT built in already, as well as ordinary homes striving for a hassle-free lifestyle. As these technologies continue to improve, the ability to monitor, control and handle things at home are going to increase, all thanks to the combination of IoT and AI.
The distance between AI and IoT is going to continue to shrink. This is going to lead to the development of superior functionality in devices, as well as operational excellence. With the integration of user specific intelligence, a traditional IoT device can be capable of providing user specific experiences. Additionally, the IoT applications in place are going to become even smarter, so they can observe their surroundings, correct issues and auto correct a wide array of operational glitches. With the rise in user specific technology, the base for the Personal Artificial Intelligence era is being formed.
Retail businesses are going to see a shift of perspective from focusing on mass production and moving to a much more personalized output. Using technology offered by smart voice assistants, buyers can do the same, so they are more informed about available products.
With intelligent devices, it will be much easier to find the proper color, size, price or understand what fabric options are available. AI is set to offer user information and improved hospitality to all consumers by utilizing chatbots, which are also ideal in regard to information supply management.
When AI and the IoT finally shake hands and merge to offer more innovative solutions, both businesses, consumers and individuals will benefit. The new technological options available will make life easier and minimize confusion and issues for virtually everyone.
