3 Artificial Intelligence Trends to Watch Out for in 2018

Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the latest tech buzzwords about to change the course of the world. In fact, it has a significant impact it is polarizing. Regardless where you stand with AI, one thing is sure: it will find a place in many aspects of people’s lives.

Here are three AI trends that will more likely grow in 2018:

1. Dating

More Americans are not only dating but are also exploring it online. In a 2016 Pew survey, more than 14 percent of adults have used dating apps. A factor making online dating popular is that the practice has become more culturally acceptable. Secondly, there are already many apps that can help.

AI, however, can make the dating process more straightforward and more customized. An AI dating app, such as AIMM, can work on building a more accurate user profile and function as a personal assistant.

By learning more about how you behave, it can suggest the best times to call or schedule a date. It can suggest clothes to wear.

2. Diabetes Management

Diabetes is a common disease in the US. It now affects over 100 million people with many more remaining undiagnosed. It is complex to treat with no cure available yet. So far, the best way to prevent complications is to manage it.

AI can help in this area, especially through early detection and monitoring of the known complications. One of these is diabetic retinopathy, a condition that leads to the damage of the blood vessels and, subsequently, vision loss.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently approved a screening device that can interpret results and images without the need of a clinician.

3. Content

For many people, content is an area that an AI may have difficulty being part of since it requires creativity. This belief may no longer hold true. Big companies such as CBS and USA Today are now exploring AI to create content efficiently.

They’re now using a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that can convert texts into a video. It allows them to penetrate different channels using the same content with the least amount of time and effort necessary.

The influence of AI is so massive, it’s enough to get the government and the public talking. In the future, regulations could be in place. None, however, can seem to stop it from becoming mainstream.
