The Internet of Things (IoT) is a comprehensive concept that incorporates advanced devices and technologies such as sensors, AI, ML and data processing capabilities all combined by the Internet. Therefore IoT-enabled devices can understand their surroundings, transfer data, collect and analyze the data to perform tasks. To seamlessly perform tasks based on data, the IoT devices must be intelligent enough to process data and act accordingly.
This is where the true potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) shows up.
With AI, we can determine the complete intelligence of an IoT service and significantly enhance the level of processing or activities that it can perform. Without a smart algorithm, the IoT devices will have very much restricted capability and will be incompetent to develop with the data.
Few examples of smart AI-based IoT services are as mentioned below:
These are cloud-based voice services that act as table-top personal assistants for users. They accomplish multiple tasks with the assistance of third-party applications and additional smart gadgets in their vicinity. They are proficient in resolving questions, setting up infotainment, playing music, and even controlling smart homes.
These virtual assistants are competent in executing multiple tasks mostly due to the application of various subﬁelds of AI. Automatic for-ﬁeld voice recognition, wake word detection, speech to text conversion, natural language processing, and understanding, contextual reasoning, dialogue management, question answering, conversational AI, etc. are performed continuously to make the voice assistants perform functions in real-time.
The modern technological progressions in the field of robotics have helped developers create advanced robots such as Sofia or Asimo. These AI robots have enhanced resemblance not only to human features but also have human capabilities. They are even capable of interacting with humans while understanding, analyzing, and also expressing certain human emotions. Robots are entirely one complete IoT device because to work efficiently they are integrated with everything from sensors and actuators to camera and Natural Language Processing(NLP) all that helps them constantly learn and evolve themselves over time.
Apart from the virtual voice assistants, chatbots and robots, there are smart devices or gadgets that are capable of making tasks easier for humans. Smart gadgets that are programmed to implement the use of object detection, voice recognition, facial recognition, voice recognition, etc to communicate with humans and perform certain tasks.
Apart from smart automation for enterprises, IoT has a huge potential in the diverse industrial sectors including manufacturing, production and robotics. These services provide enhanced statistical and ﬁnancial solutions to an industry as a whole and also provide consumer trend predictions using some AI and machine learning algorithms.
Therefore, IoT services combined with Artificial Intelligence have surely become a huge breakthrough in both industrial sectors as well as enterprises. More than just cost optimization, intelligent IoT solutions reduce human workload and enhance employee productivity. With the implementation of IoT and AI, enterprises can seamlessly achieve scale with a clear vision, strategy and approach to capturing value from automation.
