While AI or artificial intelligence has gotten a lot of attention and is seemingly the buzzword as of late regarding how it will shape your future, it is also part of your present, and you may not even realize it. Keep reading to learn more about how to use AI and incorporate it into your daily life to make things easier.
Use AI as an educational tool.
When talking about AI and education in the same breath, conversations always steer towards acts of plagiarism or a bot writing a paper for a student. But there is so much more to artificial intelligence that can be harnessed for the benefit of students, whether they go in-person to a public or private school or opt for a homeschooling environment.
This is especially true when it comes to younger children. When learning is combined with the use of voice AI in children’s language education, children are better understood by the technology, which helps eliminate frustrations and barriers. Students who are learning a new language or are bi-lingual receive immediate and responsive feedback from AI that reinforces their learning and keeps them on track.
Create a meal plan with AI.
AI programs, such as ChatGPT, among others, are becoming increasingly more attuned to understanding requests. Start a conversation with an AI program and ask it what to make for dinner. You may be prompted to enter ingredients you already have in your pantry and fridge. From there, the AI program will generate a custom meal plan based on information sourced from online resources.
Go hands-free with a voice assistant.
Ubiquitous devices such as Amazon’s Alexa, Google’s Voice Assistant, and Apple’s Siri have been around for a while now, and are only getting better. And that is due to the power of AI. You can use these, or similarly designed products, to do so many things with simple voice commands.
Here are some common uses for voice assistants in everyday applications.
- Ask for directions on your smartphone while driving.
- Ask a cooking-related question while cooking without having to wash your hands and open a browser, app, or cookbook.
- Set home security alarms.
- Set wake-up alarms.
- Set cooking alarms.
- Turn the lights on and off throughout the house.
- Ask the voice assistant to look up a fact or play the news.
- Set calendar reminders linked to your personal calendar.
If you are uncomfortable with the idea of these devices “listening” within your home or vehicle, you can always go into each brand or device’s settings on the related app and control how information is gathered and saved.
