A recent press release reports, “Innovations in the areas of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and deep learning are beginning to dominate the technology landscape. These concepts are set to revolutionize the connected world, but the actual user experience and concerns about privacy and security are obstacles that can prevent AI from reaching its potential. A new study from the User Experience Strategies (UXS) service at Strategy Analytics, ‘UXS Technology Planning Report: Artificial Intelligence,’ investigating the needs, behaviors and expectations of future AI consumers, has found that while the main motivation for AI is to make life more efficient with minimal effort, the number of compelling use cases for this technology is still somewhat lacking.”
The release goes on, “Home assistants are in their infancy. Due to the rush to market for some solutions, limited use cases are hindering the overall usability of AI. Furthermore, many consumers do not fully understand the scope of their existing digital assistant’s capabilities and so do not feel that they are “intelligent” because they do not realize the tasks that can be completed for them. User awareness is key to the success of AI: education / awareness needs to be continual, functions need to be made clearer and updates need to be communicated regularly. AI assistants also need to be able to learn passively from a user’s behaviors and provide recommendations based on these actions. This increases the compelling nature of AI, promoting greater usage as well as the potential for more AI integration and recommendation. Click here for the report: http://sa-link.cc/1k0.”
