These AI innovations for everyday life will change the way you live

There’s little doubt that Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are transformative technologies in most areas of our daily lives. In a peek to the future living, experts have suggested that with the help of AI and ML, from the time you wake up to the last hour till you hit the bed, technology could be practically running your house. From waking you up to preparing your pre-workout snack and even reminding you that you are running out of stocks at the kitchen, technology could be the brain behind your life. While some of the tech innovations in retail are already changing the way consumers shop and buy, AI innovations in these sectors are all set to write new stories of living:

Water Management
‘You focus on running your business and let us take care of your water.’ This seems to be the mantra of NextDrop Water Marketplace, which is helping people with water management. According to NextDrop co-founder AnuSreedharan, 50% of urban India has to source and manage their water supply but due to lack of communication and awareness, people are grappling with supply issues. Hence, to bridge this gap, NextDrop is working on AI which will help consumers with early indicators. “We are working on technology that will monitor borewells and predict when the sump will run out of water. The monitor will also indicate when the groundwater table is depleting and suggest measures to increase the levels. This way people will never run out of water,” she says. The existing NextDrop customers can load money into their e-wallet and with the help of IoT, NextDrop devices will detect when the water is running low and automatically send a message to the private water tanker. When water is loaded, the cost will be automatically deducted from the consumer’s e-wallet.

Healthcare
Artificial Intelligence is the next big thing in medicines, says Dr Sunita Maheshwari, entrepreneur and pediatric cardiologist. “We have seen that there are many algorithms that are making our work simpler. From identifying infections to detecting diseases with the help of censors, technology is changing the way patients are treated. With AI, there should be a platform where doctors are not only aware of theseHr algorithms but are also capable of using them during surgeries,” she suggests.

Crowd Management
Organising an event and wondering how many people will turn up? Soon, AI could help you with the numbers! According to sources, a Bangalore-based firm is working on developing a AI machine, which will help organisers identify the number of people who may attend or not attend an event. “The censors will analyze the behavior and mood patterns of the invitees and assess how many people may actually turn up to the event. This will help the organizers in better people management,” a source said.
