7 Game-Changing AI Options that are Converting Science Fiction to Reality

    Key takeways

    Let us go back in time to the year 1968 when we were introduced to the cute autonomous car “Herbie” in the movie “The Love Bug”. This car had emotions and was a friend to its owner. Then there was “Irona” the robotic assistant of the comic book character Richie Rich who not only performed all the household chores but was a friend who provided emotional support to Richie Rich. We have also seen the Home of the Jetsons (aired in 1962-63) where all devices and gadgets worked on the tap of a button!

    Movies and Sci-fi books created a fictional world where devices operated automatically, there were driverless cars, and robots that would work on commands. We enjoyed these shows/books, etc., as they would transport us to a fantasy world where these seemingly impossible things happened.

    Fast forward to 2024!

    Almost all of these aspects of Sci-fi movies and books seem to have come alive! Today we have AI-based devices that operate not only on touch but also on voice commands! We have driverless cars, virtual assistants, and more! It seems like our fantasy world is converting to reality! All thanks to Artificial Intelligence or AI!
