Mobile app development is heading on a revolutionary path as we speak. It would be fair to say that artificial intelligence is creating an impact on how businesses are taking a leap towards the future of mobile apps. These sure shot advancements are groundbreaking, innovative and giving rise to some praiseworthy mobile app development companies. AI has definitely brought a promising change in app development which is a part of a bigger change already in motion.
It would be unfair to ignore the fact that AI is weaving its way into almost every aspect around us. As a result of which, now we have smart content on websites, context-aware computing, predictive text etc. and these aren’t even the most important changes in the industry. Previously, we have discussed the impact of AI to Web development.
How has AI penetrated our lives?
These days, mobile users are totally dependent on AI-based apps for task completion or for general assistance. On the other hand, mobile app developers are relying on AI to build more user-centric apps. This popularity of artificial intelligence is largely due to its ability to shape anything with acute personalisation.
The idea of an app feeding a mobile user’s needs makes it even more attractive. It is more like a custom app build for a user’s personal use, which is noteworthy. AI gathers information on the go, gaining ideas from each user’s search history, buying patterns, preferences etc. Additionally, AI will enhance both back-end and front-end mobile app experiences to make it personal as it will educate machines to process information like a human brain.
Apps built on artificial intelligence provide an unparalleled experience to the end users. This is feasible because apps offer custom recommendations based on preferences learned over time via machine learning. Moreover, it gives an opportunity to build multiple user-focussed platforms by a single app.
It is interesting to see how AI broadens the landscape for app developers. App developers can go above and beyond with the flexibility AI provides and change the way how data is gathered and accessed by end users. QR code is an excellent example, how a simple thing like a QR code can be used for multiple functions. It essentially helps transmit information to the user’s mobile. QR codes, when integrated with AI can provide additional info about the products, release date for latest versions etc.
Let us check some of the AI based inventions used by mobile app development companies:
One can find chatbots everywhere these days. Usually, Chatbots are the first point of contact for customers interacting with a well known brand. It essentially creates a formidable channel between businesses and customers. At first, Chatbots were introduced to act as a filler till an actual human can intervene and contact the customer. Now, with the help of AI, Chatbots get better with each conversation. It is a new way of handling customer support and doesn’t require a human manning the chat line 24*7.
Face detection serves a greater purpose besides unlocking your smartphones, which is security. It is used as a notable feature in security and tracking apps by securing vital information of the end users. Face detection technology is used to detect a human face in an image or video format while presenting the function in different frames. We think this is just the beginning of face detection and new advancements are about to come.
Voice and Image Recognition
Artificial Intelligence and machine learning has made online search via voice/image possible for users. It really helps users when they are facing difficulty to remember information regarding their query or are just plain lazy to type. I love how I can command Alexa to change channels on my Amazon TV. In the end, it all comes down to improving the user experience to lift your business conversion rate.
With more vital information stored online, it is extremely important to secure it as well. Strong app authentication enables you to create an impassable security shield to safeguard your apps, online services and the dark web. Usually, these apps analyse user behaviour and alert the end user about any imminent threats or security breaches, if any.
Image recognition is on the rise to identify a picture as a possible landmark against the visual match and geolocation data available. Essentially, landmark detection stresses on instance level and fine-grained recognition issues. This helps to improve image analysis, security and self-learning with every case.
It is now safe to say that AI is not a work tool anymore, it has transformed to a lot more with time. AI has a huge effect on our personal lives as well with the advent of “Smart Homes”. It helps you choose your music, the movie that you should watch, sets the temperature of your aircon, decides which dish you can cook based on the ingredients you have etc.
As we have mentioned earlier, AI has announced itself in our personal lives with its hints and suggestions. If we look at this data closely, it is creating a deep impact on the business operations of many companies. We believe that what we have seen till now is just the tip of the iceberg. The possibilities of AI in app development are endless and can be the onset of a new era in technological advancement.
