AI: Pandemic lifesaver?


The global pandemic has created a new normal in our lives. Distancing, and extensive protection from people and objectives has created a hindrance. Going back to the old normal would take years to accomplish. As we quarantine, we keep ourselves engaged on the digital platform exploring and discovering new things every day.

Lately, businesses suffer from a greater threat because of the current scenario we are facing. They are forced to digitalize their activities and create customer relations more rigorous through online platforms. Those businesses that relied on human labor are cutting it short and are now dependent on machines powered by AI.

Employees, though working from home has made it comfortable to balance work and family, it still causes a barrier. Projects and assignments could double since there are no fixed work hours. Able to perform tasks with the use of programmed platforms is a helping hand to the employees which makes their workload a bit easier.

Artificial intelligence is a paradox that was used in movies; like the Tin man from the movie The Wizard of Oz, to depict technological advancements can create human-like creations. Thus, it has and always been a subject of debate. But have you ever wondered why? AI has helped in bridging the cavity of man and machine. The movies are not wrong because that is exactly what AI does. They perform all the tasks you desire to do. Artificial intelligence is a man-made success that was made from a genius brain and a few e-junks. AI is an algorithmic program that is given the coded command to fulfill the customer’s requirements from the AI.

As important as AI is now, it is going to gain relevance even after the pandemic ends. Especially as it pertains to tracking people’s health and wellbeing in public areas. Not only the health sector but to almost every industry AI has become a boon to making matters simple. Even small-scale companies are hiring AIs to complete their tasks along with men.

One of the biggest benefits we have gained from employing machines into our systems is the chances of error. It is close to or less than 5%, let’s say, which is caused by mistakes caused during programming or the learning process. Biased information can lead the AI to make unexpected mistakes. Human errors purely originated from the lack of knowledge or misinterpreted information that can lead to wrong decisions. However, an AI goes through a complex process of learning and understanding commands that need to perform with 100% accuracy, making us save time, energy, and cost.

Artificial intelligence has been subjected to evolution since the time technology was discovered. It will evolve and make the future a brighter target to achieve.
