The world is changing at a very fast pace. Technology is rapidly making a difference in the daily lives of people and even in the way they approach their careers and other important life tasks. How many people do you know without a smartphone? Technology is advancing at such a fast rate that many school children of today will actually do jobs that do not even exist yet when they grow up! 

Artificial Intelligence (in short, AI), is actually one of the most significant recent development. It might sound like something out of a science fiction flick, but AI is already all around you. Siri, on your iPhone, is a basic form of AI, and so is Amazon’s increasingly popular Alexa. This article explores five ways in which AI might change the world!

Simple tasks made easier: AI is going to deeply change how people perform simple tasks around the house or at the office. You are not going to need to reach your stereo to change a song or walk up to the light switch to turn on a light. Just ask the AI and sit back!

Machine Learning: The most advanced AI tools have the power to actually learn from their experiences and the information they acquire. This means that they will be able to perform increasingly complex tasks!

Virtual Assistants: Intelligent virtual assistants will become increasingly sophisticated and more common. 

Customer service: Today, customer service might be very time-consuming. If you ever had to wait for 25 minutes just to talk to a disgruntled employee, you probably know what I am talking about! AI will make customer service quicker, more effective and more affordable

Safety: AI tools could also greatly improve our safety in many applications. There are many talks about the feasibility of self-driving cars, and it seems like they might become a staple in the not-too-distant future. Studies have shown that AI would significantly reduce accidents.
