For many, the whole idea of artificial intelligence or AI may sound futuristic and scary. Experts say it’s the fear of the unknown that makes the future with AI systems daunting, especially for people in the production, manufacturing, and BPO industries.

Current Applications of Artificial Intelligence

AI has been around for decades but has only recently been available in real-world applications. At length, it has seeped into our everyday lives. You may have used one without knowing it. To tell you how deep it has set into our daily lives, here are a few current listed AI systems apps on Beebom.

1. Smartphones

If you own one of the latest smartphones chances are, you’ve already used the AI technology in the mobile device. Smart assistants such as Google Assistant, Siri, Bixby, and animated emojis are just a few of the AI features on smartphones.

2. Social Media Feeds

It may sound creepy, but AI impacts your social media choices well. From the feeds on your timeline to app notifications, AI selects, organizes, curates, and looks after everything.

3. Music and Media Streaming Services

Using your activity history, AI systems are the tech behind YouTube videos, Netflix shows, and pre-created Spotify playlists.

4. Online Ads Network

Ever wondered why ads on the web page you’re in match your food cravings or the items on your wish list? It’s not merely a coincidence. It’s the product of your search history and AI stats.

5. Navigation and Travel

Likewise, as with smart assistants, travel and navigation apps and software use AI to give real-time traffic information and fare prices from points A to B.

AI Systems in the Philippine BPO Industry

Rather than a competition, AI systems and humans can work together to make lives easier. In the BPO industry, instead of replacing jobs, firms will upskill their staff. They train them to use AI systems to make them more effective and productive.

The Manila Times said the government is launching a “Philippine AI Workforce” initiative to give more jobs using Augmented Intelligence or AI-enabled systems. These will combine the power of AI with human intelligence to upskill Filipino workers. In addition, these will make them do more complex and high-paying tasks.

In contrast to the biggest concern AI will replace the need for human labor, it’s creating new job opportunities. Thus, the rise of AI systems won’t just help BPO employees but also give jobs to people in the rural areas.
