When two elite technologies meet, AI and IoT, we get Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT). Artificial intelligence combined with IoT will improve IoT operations, make human-machine interaction better, and intelligent data management. With AI on the side, a more efficient and thoughtful analysis of IoT device data is possible.
In a usual scenario, IoT-enabled devices collect all the data according to their configuration. Then the data is passed to a cloud platform. The processing of the data happens in the cloud platform. Here, the task of IoT devices is to collect the data to analyze.
With AI, a far more efficient inference is possible with the data from IoT devices. In short, the devices become smarter when AI comes into the picture. Consider your IoT speaker; with AI, it gets the ability to process natural language. All you have to do is to tell the trigger word, and the speaker responds.
Transforming Lives for the Better
AIoT can make huge impacts on different sectors of the economy. It can help in the early diagnosis of cancer, improve weather forecasting, and make manufacturing smart. AIoT will create changes in people’s lifestyles, too; smart houses, intelligent temperature controllers, smart wearables, etc., are few examples. In short, AIoT will bring more quality into human lives. Now let us look into the changes in some of the sectors with the advent of AIoT.
The healthcare and medical sector produce enormous amounts of data. Artificial Intelligence can help in making valuable insights from the data. It can help in the early detection of diseases, better treatment for ailments based on the patient’s history. With smart wearables, doctors can keep regular track of the patient’s activities.
IoT has made huge impacts in the medical sector. Along with the use of AI, it will even give a better output. More advanced scanning devices and other medical equipment help in the better diagnosis of diseases.
AIoT can be resourceful for hospital management also. They can keep track of the medical equipment like nebulizers, oxygen pumps, wheelchairs, etc. IoT-enabled devices are also helpful for checking the medical devices’ hygiene and reviewing how clean they are before using them.
Consistent monitoring of patients with chronic ailments is also made possible with the help of AIoT. The technological advancement in the medical field in the past few years is tremendous. Revolutionizing IoT through AI has indeed helped in saving many lives.
The concept of a smart factory is centering around AIoT and digital transformation. Industrial IoT or IIoT ( IoT in the industrial ecosystem) and AI give the manufacturing sector immense potential. Predictive Maintenance is one of the main attractions of AIoT. It helps machines to identify themselves when they need maintenance or repair. The trouble of unexpected machine failure is no longer a problem. So with AIoT, uninterrupted production becomes a reality. It can reduce maintenance and breakdown costs. It also helps in manufacturing goods in quantities according to the market demand.
The owners can track the movement of the products and raw materials with the help of IoT sensors. AIoT has indeed given a hi-tech face to the manufacturing sector.
Like other industries, the agriculture sector has also become smart with the impact of AI and IoT. With tons of information about the soil’s quality, the manures used, the weather conditions, the agriculture also gets a hi-tech transformation. The automation in irrigation, fertilization, harvesting, and other production processes, have made the expenses come down a lot.
With the help of AIoT, the quality and quantity of the harvest are predictable. The soil’s production capacity, the amount of water, and other supplements required are known to the farmer in advance. It helps in the better management of the entire process and also leads to higher quality output. More accurate climate predictions also help the farmers to be in better control.
Weather forecasting has become more efficient and accurate with the help of AIoT. With more precise high-resolution remote sensors, forecasting has become more dependable. With effective processing of the sensors’ data, the weather predictions are more accurate and error-free.
It can help the airplanes to navigate easily; it can predict wildfires or possible fire breakouts. Advance information about these can help in more efficient service. As mentioned above, it can also help the agriculture sector. Accurate forecasting can also help construction companies, as they can plan their construction activities.
A few decades back, we wouldn’t have thought about smartwatches or smart TV. But now it is everywhere. In the future, we will see the rise of more intelligent gadgets, and IoT app development will flourish more. AIoT will open an arena of new opportunities and business ideas.
Maybe we will have robot friends and drone assistants. Driverless cars will become common and a safer option. Working with robots will become standard, 5G will fuel IoT growth even further, AI becomes even better. The routers will become more intelligent, and cyber crimes also will take a new face. And people’s lives will become more comfortable and hopefully happy.
