AI-augmented human services


In the consumer realm, technologies based on artificial intelligence (AI) are slowly changing the way we manage everyday tasks. Take the driving app Waze, for example. Waze uses crowdsourced data, social networking conversations, and cognitive learning to help shave time off daily commutes by providing the most efficient route based on current conditions and individual driving preferences. Or consider products like Nest. Gone are the days of paying to heat or cool your house while no one's home.
