AI – Artificial Intelligence
AI is no more science fiction; it is a part of our everyday life. It is normal for our computers and smartphones to respond to our actions, analyze our surrounding world, and operate based on information or data collected in real-time. Google search, Apple Siri, and social media sites like Instagram, Facebook are a few prominent examples of the utility of AI. These platforms stand up to the customer’s needs, show content as per the taste and preference of the users, track speech patterns, browsing behavior, etc. Now a day’s majority of the websites and e-commerce sites are being developed using AI technology, which works based on collecting client interests and preferences. For example, if I search for car accessories on Amazon, the AI knows my area of interest and registers it for future marketing and product information updates. So, Next time I visit the Amazon site or any associate third party site, (that is interlinked) I will find advertisements and updates on products related to Car Accessories.

The idea is to provide an automated service to the users and customers, which is effortless, user friendly, and accessible in the shortest possible time, sometimes in a matter of seconds. Today’s world the consumers are highly impatient, the information and services are required to be provided instantly. The new age web developers are equipped to handle the current trend with an automated response mechanism using AI. This innovation has made users’ life easier and time saver. For example, we can book a cab through the Uber app without opening the app on our mobile handset. With the GPS on, the location of the customer can be confirmed, and the driver can send a booking confirmation message to the passenger with pick up details.
