32 Everyday AI Applications

From Bacteria-Killing Smart Vacuums to Infrared Connected Bulbs

— October 17, 2016 — Tech
These everyday AI applications range from robotic smart vacuums to connected doorbells that are designed to boost security and peace of mind among home owners. In addition to being adapted by major retailers -- brands transforming the traditional shopping experience into a more personalized and interactive one -- applications on a smaller scale are also on the rise.

Examples like smart digital frames, smartphone-connected irons and sterilizing UV toilets are designed to be hyper functional while making daily household chores a more enjoyable and hassle-free experience for all and are some of the most notable innovations on the market.

Similarly, Amazon Prime's partnerships with various household brands -- the brand's venture with GE Appliances has spawned a dishwasher that orders its own detergent -- is another key example of how artificial intelligence is becoming more accessible than ever before.
