Artificial intelligence is an emerging technology that has the potential to address several global challenges. If it is used well it will be a gift: whether it is health care, education or finance, because it promises answers that man has been looking for for centuries. In this post I will tell you about some unusual applications of artificial intelligence that I am sure will pique your curiosity :)
Jury in a beauty contest
Artificial intelligence has begun to judge in a women's beauty pageant. All true! The procedure involved downloading an app and uploading a face photo without makeup and a full-length one. The AI algorithms examined the images based on various criteria such as facial symmetry, gender, color, wrinkles, and other factors. I would say that the second edition went pretty well. The first one was a disaster, complete with accusations of racism.
Food reformulation is one of the more unusual AI applications that can challenge anyone. Thanks to the combination of artificial intelligence and genetic editing methods, gourmets will soon be able to experience the world's first "intelligent" flavor. Or spicy tomatoes, or wine that doesn't get drunk (so what's the use?) and other strange things.
Creating hit songs
AI algorithms have already shown more than once to be able to help create hit songs. And in several ways: for example by searching through all existing songs to find the main theme of a new song. Or fishing the texts with a mix that includes millions of sources (including audio: conferences, conversations, news and much more). Among other applications, the AI singer-songwriter can also set music, of course, as well as find the lyrics.
What do you do
AI will give its best by becoming a chef who can assist cooks in creating a dish based on the ingredients you have available. AI algorithms will be able to search for meals to prepare, allowing for a variety of choices and precise instructions for a great dish, or create new recipes based on general criteria and combinations. Just like a human cook would do: one day even physically.
Be prepared to be served by one robotic machine for pouring beer. His AI is trained with a sea of biometric variables: pour a perfect beer, keeping track of bubble size, color and other characteristics. Like an expert bartender he manages to balance the foam of a beer to enhance the pleasure of customers: and he doesn't ask questions about private life.
It's hard to predict how AI will change our lives in the future, but these five unusual applications are proof that it will be nothing short of amazing. By the way, AI is already doing incredible things today. What will happen when this technology really takes off?
