5 Super Cool Applications of Deep Learning that will Revolutionize the Next Decade!
By Aditi Bhat
Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL) are two disciplines of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that are gaining a lot of momentum. Applications based on ML and DL will revolutionize the world in the next five-ten years. You may no longer have to learn driving or even spend time booking reservations at restaurants because AI and DL-powered applications will do everything for you.
Let’s have a look at five super-cool upcoming applications that will not only leave you awestruck, but may also inspire you to join this field –
1. Modern-day romance, literally!
How often have you taken a ‘rain check’ on a date because you weren’t feeling up for it? In the modern-day world, while most people do crave a deep human connection, they may not necessarily want to invest in the whole ‘trial and error’ before finding someone they are compatible with.
Wouldn’t it be great if Alexa could notch it up a bit a not just help you get a date, but also probably let you know if they are right for you? Well, guess what? It might soon turn into a reality. Yes, AI and DL experts are working on creating empathetic AI bots that can fill in the shoes of your BFF and probably even substitute for you on dates, before you finally make you grand entrance. Sounds fun, scary? We will let you decide that!
2. Bomb diffusion and face recognition specialists
AI can have some revolutionary implications in the field of defence. You may have heard a lot about AI taking away human jobs. But for once you will be glad that they are - life-threatening jobs may soon be handed over to AI-based robots. After all, robots are not privy to pain and even if they get damaged, they can always be rebuilt, unlike our soldiers and police personnel.
Another potential use of AI will be in identifying suspects. Relying on sketches made on the basis of someone’s half-accurate memory of the scene of crime may not be the smartest way of catching culprits. AI enabled glasses will be able to scan everyone in sight and immediately match the features of the suspect with the image or sketch that has been stored.
3. Virtual assistants
You must be well-aware of the Alexas and Google Nows of the world. Presently, they help in reducing workload by providing small bits of information. But virtual assistants will extend beyond just that in the coming years. They will soon be able to make reservations on your behalf.
What’s more, several Japanese companies are testing robotic virtual assistants inside banks and hotels for managing huge queues. These robots are capable of performing small tasks such as verifying the identity of the customers among other things.

4. Medical support
The human brain is like a machine consisting of several components that communicate with each other. Miscommunication or asynchronous communication between different parts is one of the reasons of autism. By creating algorithms and machine learning techniques, researchers from the University of North Carolina have been able to successfully predict the development of autism in 9 out of 11 kids by studying the way the different components of their brains react with each other.
Individuals suffering from conditions like autism or emotional trauma require a lot of patience, which may not be the strongest quality of humans. ML and DL-based bots have proven to be effective in teaching autistic kids by repeating instructions as many times as they required. And we know this is just the beginning. It is no surprise that most AI and DL medical innovations are aimed at pushing the human lifespan and helping live a disease-free life.
5. Professional athletes
Football is one of those games that requires a high degree of human involvement. But scientists are confident that by the next 30 years, they will be able to implement deep learning for developing robots that will be able to compete with the likes of Messi and Ronaldo!
The growth of deep learning is expected to follow an exponential curve with several interesting AI projects coming up. We, at Manipal ProLearn, understand the nature of jobs that will drive the world in the coming decade and are launching a short yet comprehensive AI and DL course to help you break into this highly demanding field.
