13 Mind-Blowing Things Artificial Intelligence Can Already Do Today

By now, most of us are aware of artificial intelligence (AI) being an increasingly present part of our everyday lives. But, many of us would be quite surprised to learn of some of the skills AI already knows how to do. Here are 13 mind-blowing skills artificial intelligence can already do today.

1. Read

Is one of your wishes to save time by only having to pay attention to the salient points of communication? Your wish has come true with artificial intelligence-powered SummarizeBot. Whether it’s news articles, weblinks, books, emails, legal documents, audio and image files, and more, automatic text summarization by artificial intelligence and machine learning reads communication and reports back the essential information. Currently, SummarizeBot can be used in Facebook Messenger or Slack and relies on natural language processing, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and blockchain technologies.

2. Write

Would you believe that along with professional journalists, news organizations such as The New York Times, Washington Post, Reuters, and more rely on artificial intelligence to write? They do, and although this does include many “who, what, where, when, and how” formulaic pieces, AI is able to expand beyond this to more creative writing as well. Many marketers are turning to artificial intelligence to craft their social media posts. Even a novel has even been generated by artificial intelligence that was short-listed for an award.

3. See

Machine vision is when computers can “see” the world, analyze visual data, and make decisions about it. There are so many amazing ways machine vision is used today, including enabling self-driving cars, facial recognition for police work, payment portals, and more. In manufacturing, the ability for machines to see helps in predictive maintenance and product quality control.

4. Hear and understand

Did you know artificial intelligence is able to detect gunshots, analyze the sound, and then alert relevant agencies? This is one of the mind-blowing things AI can do when it hears and understands sounds. And who can refute the helpfulness of digital voice assistants to respond to your queries whether you want a weather report or your day’s agenda? Business professionals love the convenience, efficiency, and accuracy provided by AI throughautomated meeting minutes.

5. Speak

Artificial intelligence can also speak. While it’s helpful (and fun) to have Alexa and Google Maps respond to your queries and give you directions, Google Duplex takes it one step further and uses AI to schedule appointments and complete tasks over the phone in very conversational language. It can respond accurately to the responses given by the humans it’s talking to as well.
