AI is the hot trending topic this age and going to last much longer than we think, as it’s destined to be ‘THE FUTURE’. There are many interesting facts and studies about AI to discuss about. But do you know few of these facts?

1. AI robots are mostly female:
The artificially intelligent voices you hear on a regular basis, Are any of them men? Whether its Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana, Amazon’s Alexa, or virtually any GPS system, chances are the computerized personalities in your life are women. Why is that, exactly? AI is the technology where the development of human and machine interaction is going at a higher level, where everyone wants a personalized human touch in everything from these robots. Basically we all know female voices sound much better than male voices. Secondly, female voices are less threatening more polite like everyone wants their personal secretary should be!

2. You can have a RELATIONSHIP with AI:
Scientists are developing new ‘mind reading’ artificial intelligence systems that can decode complex human thoughts just by measuring brain activity. AI is a technology which is made with the combination of machine learning, natural language processing and deep learning. All these terms gives us more understanding about humans and their behavior. Prediction is by 2050 marriages of human and AI will be legal. 

3. Using AI technology is next future of social media:
All the social media companies are in the competition of using AI to see and enhance customer experience. Facebook and Twitter are two companies essentially applying AI to match relevant content to the people. Leading this race is Google, coming across as one of the most preferred and reliable search engines. A third of the world’s population is using Social Media, and AI is playing a huge part in how businesses are communicating with potential prospects online.

4. AI Will Become Smarter Than Humans:
With AI having the ability to learn, computers are getting to be pretty smart. As of 2013, AI was about at the same intelligence level as a four-year-old and there have been lots of advances since then. For example, in 2014 a supercomputer cracked a complicated math problem called Erdos discrepancy problem, which was published in 1930. The amazing thing is that humans can’t even double check the solution because the equation is too long. The file is 13-gigabytes, and just for comparison, all of Wikipedia is about 10-gigbytes.
According to renowned futurist Ray Kurzweil, by 2029 AI will be at about the level of intelligent adult humans. Beyond that, anything is pretty much possible, especially if AI can get exponentially smarter. For example, Kurzweil believes it could lead to something called singularity, which is where humans and machines will meld into one entity.

5. AI will take over the human jobs soon:
At the rate at which Artificial Intelligence is being adopted in various areas of our lives, it is predicted that it will replace 16% of our jobs over the next decade. It is a fact that with increased intelligence and ability to perform tasks with accuracy, over the next few years it is predicted that close to three million workers will be reporting to or will be supervised by “Robot-bosses”. With Machine learning and language recognition, it is no surprise that 85% of telephonic customer service jobs will be performed by computers and will not need human interaction.

Globally organisations of all sizes and industries are pursuing AI-driven automation to help improve productivity and profitability. The question is: if AI develops to a point where machines will take over humans’ jobs, what will those jobs be? Here are five examples of what the future could look like.

# Receptionist:
The advancement of new technologies such as Amazon Alexa and Google Home could potentially see human receptionists replaced, with voice-activated response getting all the details necessary instead. Employers lose business opportunities when office receptionists are not available to respond to every customer, or take calls from potential customers. However, if ever there was a job that needs the human touch it is surely this one.
#Job interviewers:
Students are asked to set up a webcam on their computer or phone, instead of sitting in front of an interviewer. Questions appear on the screen, and interviewees are asked to make a video recording of their answers. Powerful algorithms scan the videos and pick up the words or phrases that the interviewees are using, and how confidently they answer. The AI interviews are used to help narrow down the thousands of applicants involved, until a shortlist is made and final in-person interviews take place.
#Law enforcement:
RoboCop may not yet be available, but China announced plans in November to build an unmanned police station powered by AI in Wuhan in Hubei province. Chinese financial paper Caijing Neican, reports that it will offer simulated driver examinations and provide registration services, thanks to state-of-the-art facial-recognition technology. It will be introduced to help users avoid sitting at stations for long periods of time, sign up for accounts, or download apps. The cutting-edge AI technology will access all the individuals’ information as soon as it sees the person’s face.
The future for telemarketers looks bleak. AI is already being used to find the best advertisement targets to make it easier for customers to learn about the most attractive products and services online. Direct customer advertisement would also not be needed in the long run, with direct phone sales falling in popularity as the age of digital advertisements goes from strength to strength.
One of the most obvious ways in which AI will make inroads is in accounting and bookkeeping, which can be easily automated. A range of accounting software facilitators already offer automated data entry, and other bookkeeping practices. The move is being promoted as essential as it will diminish mistakes introduced by human error, but most importantly of all, it will also be faster and work out at a lower cost.

Good to know this...:)

Thanks for this motivational post... :)

12 Best Android Apps Not on Google Play Store of 2017:
1. XTunes
This app is for those who like to download music and audio on the go. Unlike other apps available on the Google Play Store, the user has the freedom to store the songs on their storage.
Most of the songs can be found on this app from old to the latest ones. Also, most of the songs that you will download from this app will have prefilled correct metadata like artist, album, year, track, cover photo in it. So, you will not have to worry about those and will be able to organize your music efficiently.
Almost all songs are available in high quality. We have found that all of the latest songs are available in 320kbps quality. If you are a music enthusiast, you will know when you see it. Also, you can search for an entire album and the songs from that album will be enlisted. You will also get an option to download the search song from the YouTube if it’s not available in app’s database. In fact, we consider it as the best Android app to download songs.
2. QuickLyric
As the name suggest, this app will show you the lyrics of the song which is playing or any song that you are going to search manually. You might also be wondering that what’s different between quicklyric and the other apps available on the Google Play Store like MusiXmatch etc.
The difference is that, here in quicklyric, you will be able to download lyrics offline for all the songs in a single click. As I recall, other apps don’t allow it for free. Also if you enable the option to refresh lyrics automatically, this app will search and download them whenever you add a new song to your device. You can also set it to show lyrics once the track changes. Seems awesome right!

3. Viper4Android
If you have a rooted Android device, probably you may have heard about this app. This is an equalizer app, but don’t even think that so what? This is not just a simple equalizer; it is the father of all equalizer. You can configure almost anything this app. However, this comes with a limitation. You will need a rooted Android device to run this app. If you don’t have a rooted device, then you can try Poweramp music player who will deliver the near same experience.
4. Popcorn Time
First of all, let us know what comes to your mind when you say this app’s name? As the name suggest relaxation and movie time, this app will allow you to download your favorite TV series as well as movies with a single click. Now, when you are bored, you will not have to open torrent site and Google and stumble across the web to download the movies and tv shows you want. This app is godsend :D.
Several other apps are available on the web like Showbox etc. But none of these apps we found as complete and as bug-free as Popcorn Time. You might already start liking the app, but we haven’t told you the best part about it yet. You will also be able to watch the trailer before downloading, excellent quality of the video, select subtitles. And then you will just have to click the magnet button. This will start the download in your torrent client.
5. Torrent Search
There are lots of torrent websites available on the internet. Let us give you a hint, if you start counting all of the torrent sites, you won’t be able to count! But some of the popular torrent sites have all the things that we need and are regularly updated.
But for searching in these torrent sites will require you first to open this sites one by one and search for the desired thing. What if you can reduce this work and just search all of these major torrent sites with a single click. Well, this app will be able to do that.
Just enter what you want to download and hit the search button. It will search all the major sites and will provide you the results with torrent size, the number of seeders and leechers and torrent age. Now click on the torrent that you want to download. Then the download will begin in your default torrent client. You can also search for the top torrents of the day, month, year and all time. If you don’t have a torrent client on your Android device, we would recommend using Flud, one of the best torrent downloaders for Android.
6. F-Droid
You might be aware of the open source. F-Droid consists of all of the apps that are available as open-source. Here you can download the apps that are not available on Google Play Store. You can find some of the apps listed in this article on F-Droid.
This app doesn’t consist any pirated or crack software. You might have heard about an app named “Black Market.” This app is nothing like that. This app is great for exploring the new open-source apps that you can’t find on Google Play Store.
7. Amazon UnderGround
You might be thinking that what the heck is Amazon Underground app. You might know that Amazon is one of the top apps in the shopping section on Play Store. But if you are using the official app, you are missing out on a lot of fun. Amazon Underground app can be downloaded from the official Amazon Website but isn’t available on Google Play.
8. MiXplorer
MiXplorer is a file manager which comprises of many useful features. The design is quite similar to the Solid Explorer. In fact, you can say that it combines both ES File Explorer and Solid Explorer. It offers tab support and dual pane support which make the working on different location simpler.
The features to connect cloud services like Google Drive, Mediafire, FTP, etc. makes it even handy to control remote storage right from the file manager. It has it’s archive manager, e-book reader, file encryption, media player and many more features that you can explore by yourself.
9. Tubemate
You might also have heard about this app somewhere or may have read about it. As the name suggest, it helps you to download the videos from YouTube. It can also download and extract MP3 from the videos
A while ago when downloading videos from YouTube was not against their terms and condition, there were several apps available on the Google Play Store to do that. But the new ToS doesn’t allow it. So you will have to rely on the apps that are not available in the Google Play Store, and luckily TubeMate is one of the best apps for downloading YouTube Videos.
10. Xposed Framework
Xposed Framework is an app that will let you customize your Android device, the way you want. It consists of sub-applications known as modules. These modules can be used for specific customizations. And there are a whole lot of modules available for Xposed which will make your android device awesome.
However, for Xposed to work, you will need a rooted Android device. Otherwise, you are out of luck. There is also an app known as Substratum (Available on Google Play Store) which is also perfect for customization. But it will also need a rooted device.

11. AdAway
Whenever you download apps for free from Google Play Store, they are likely to have advertisement popping all over it. It’s nothing to worry about, but when they are placed in such a way that every time you click it accidently, it becomes annoying.
This app will let you remove all the ads from every app on your Android device. Hence saving you some time and also in case some bandwidth. However, for this, you will need root access on your Android device. Also, there is a nice feature that you can check for the updates so that if a new ad network comes in you can block, so it won’t be able to display ads.
Also, note that if you disable advertisements some apps like XTunes will be stuck and it will not function properly as it used to be. However, this is not the case with most of the apps. Almost all apps we have tried so far worked fine.
12. Lucky Patcher
Lucky Patcher is a handy app when it comes to removing ads, patching, remove license verification, modifying APKs, backup/restore and much more. You will also need a rooted device for this app. This app just can’t be explained in ordinary words. You will just have to try this app out to test its features. Do let us know what you think about it.
