A long time back, AI (artificial intelligence) was a sci-fi limited to blockbuster movies and thriller books. Back then, little did we realize how the impact of artificial intelligence will change the way we live life.
From asking for driving directions to music suggestions or even ordering food, we rely on AI to make things easier for us. Virtual assistants like Google, Alexa, and Siri have allowed us to voice search everything and assist us in daily tasks reminding us of an important date or a delivery package to be picked up.
Based on the current growth of AI and machine learning, it’s evident that the future of AI looks very exciting. According to Accenture, 80% of Canadian businesses believe that AI is necessary for growth and to meet business objectives.
While AI is becoming instrumental across the global business landscape, the impact of artificial intelligence in everyday life is also growing tremendously. Here is a look at how the impact of artificial intelligence in everyday life may look in the future.
Impact on Future Jobs
The growing prominence of AI is already making waves in the business sector and will impact job roles as well. As technology becomes a popular and fast-growing sector, students can consider a future in this industry.
Though to enter this vast sector, you will need the necessary knowledge and expertise which is offered by the Canadian College of Technology and Business (CCTB), a reputed college that offers an array of tech programs.
Among these accredited programs is Data Engineering and Analytics with Co-op which teaches students how to develop and implement complex data structures. This post-secondary Diploma prepares you for a range of careers such as Database Administrator, Data Architect, Data Analyst and more.
Additionally, this program, like other programs offered by CCTB, comes with a Co-op experience which means students are not only trained on theoretical knowledge but are also given co-op work experience. This allows them to gain real-time professional skills that they can apply to their job role. A co-op experience can also enhance your chances of getting hired as you will bring something extra to the table.

How will AI impact our future?
The role of AI in our everyday life will only become more prominent in the coming times. AI-powered technologies will become more integrated into our lives, making tasks easier, more efficient, and more personalized.
Lately, there has been increasing use of smartphones and smart devices that use face and voice detection and are able to handle complex tasks very easily. AI-powered cars, delivery drones, healthcare, and a lot more are examples of how AI has integrated itself into our lives.
The future of artificial intelligence will result in more promising and exciting inventions that will enhance our daily lives in numerous ways. Here are some of these AI tools that may become more prominent in the future.
Visual Search Option
How often have you come across a product that caught your attention but you couldn’t locate it in any shopping aisle, be it virtual or brick and mortar? In that case, AI will now assist you to find the same product simply through the ‘visual search option’. All you have to do is click a picture of the item and AI will show you something similar online. Amazon has already incorporated this AI tool into its mobile application.
Hold For Me
Being put on hold during calls can be annoying but now you don’t have to waste time staying on hold, at least if you are living in the U.S. ‘Hold For Me’ is an AI technology that is a new addition to the pixel phones that saves you from excessive waiting while a call is on hold. This feature allows Google Assistant to wait on hold for you during a phone call and alert you when a human representative is on the line, saving you time and frustration.
Becoming an athlete requires a lot of training and guidance, be it learning how to swing a baseball bat or hitting a ball across the net with a racket. AI predictive analysis is already playing a major part in the sports industry and will continue to do so in the future. Similar to how AI-powered devices can count your daily steps, wearable AI will be able to tell wear and tear places on an athlete’s body. An AI-powered tool ‘Connexion kiosk’ is already being used by the NBA to evaluate the physical health of players.
Looking to extract a text from an image or simply keen to find more information on a plant, animal, or anything interesting that you came across? Then Google Lens will help you out with its OCR abilities to extract written information from an image. Similarly, its accurate optical recognition will allow you to get precise information on any image. All you have to do is point the lens at it and click a picture. This means with simply a picture, you can find all the relevant information about an interesting sight, plant or anything that intrigued you.
Ensuring safety at home is on everyone’s mind and AI is already doing its part for automated home security. In the future, we are likely to see more advanced technology in sensor-assisted motion detection and automated security. With the growing demand in the market for AI-powered home security gadgets, these products are now shifting from luxury products to essentials.
