Applications Of Artificial Intelligence


Customer Service

Almost all companies nowadays have a form of high-tech customer support which we usually know as chatbots. These chatbots enable the company to provide exceptional customer service without shedding out a large amount of money, unlike traditional ones that can only be reached via email or phone.

AI-enabled customer service or chatbots can answer simple questions such as order inquiry, up to helping customers troubleshoot minor technical difficulties. It can also help save time for both the company and the customer that’s why it’s considered as one of the powerful applications of AI.



Artificial Intelligence has been a great help in improving education through AI tutors. They help students who experience anxiety and stress when immersed in a  class or through one-on-one human interaction. It also helps in the overall surrounding of the classroom, making it easier for teachers to educate their students.

Not only that it helps improve classrooms and students with anxiety, some applications of artificial intelligence education enable users to learn different subjects anytime and anywhere just by using their device. In 2020, expect more AI software that will empower education by making it accessible and easy to use.
