Machine Learning Applications: Are They a Part of Our Lives?

Machine Learning Applications: Are They a Part of Our Lives?

If you are tech-savvy then you must have heard about AI and Machine learning applications. Machine learning applications are everywhere from being integrated into social media platforms to self-driving cars. The point is that machine learning is significant technology and is growing at a fast pace.

ML is a part of Artificial Intelligence, today we are going to give some examples of machine learning that we use every day. 

Social Media Features

You must have noticed Facebook suggesting you specific accounts to follow or friends’ suggestions- all this is a part of machine learning. Social media platforms use machine learning algorithms to create suggestions that are appealing and have amazing features. Again if we talk about Facebook, it notices your chats, posts you have liked, and the amount of time you spend on those posts. Machine learning learns from a person’s choices and offers them the same of their interest.

All this is great because you get a better and personalized news feed. Here are some examples that you may recognize:

Face Recognition: You post a picture of your friend and you, Facebook instantly recognize that friend. How Facebook does this? It’s quite interesting- Facebook checks the pose and unique features in the picture and then matches them with the people in your friend list.

People You May Know: Another great feature but again how Facebook finds people that are related to you in some way?  You have to learn one thing about machine learning that is- they work on a simple concept, understanding with experience.

Facebook keenly keeps an eye on the friends you connect with, the profiles you browse, your workplace, interests. On the mere basis of this understanding and experiencing, a list of ‘people you may know’ is created that you can possibly become friends with.

Product Recommendations

Wonder how you get product recommendations that suit your likings and interests often?  Product recommendations are one of the best features of machine learning. Sometimes it even shows you mobile app trends from where you can buy the product. Using machine learning and AI technology a website track your choices and behaviour based on your previous purchases and gives you perfect product recommendations.

Sentiment Analysis

To say it in simple terms, sentiment analysis is a real-time machine learning application that evaluates the opinion and emotions of the writer or a speaker. For example, if someone has written an email or a review, a sentiment analyzer will instantly figure out the tone and thought of the text. The best example of a sentiment analyzer is the Grammarly app.

Virtual Personal Assistant

Siri, Alexa, Google Now are some of the most popular examples of a virtual personal assistants. As the name speaks itself, a virtual personal assistant listens to your command (your voice) and finds you information or calls someone and many other functions.

Of course, it is different from having a real human working for you, but still, a virtual personal assistant is the future of humankind. All you have to do is activate the assistant and voila you have a friend and assistant- two in one.

Machine learning is an important part of a virtual assistant as they are responsible for collecting and processing the information. Following are some examples of virtual assistants applied to a variety of platforms;

Smart Speakers: Google Home and Amazon Echo

 Mobile Apps: Google Allo

 Smartphones: Samsung Bixby on Samsung S8

IoT applications in the fight against COVID-19

IoT applications in the fight against COVID-19

To prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the number of customers who can be present simultaneously at your point of sale is limited. You can count the customers. Or use smart technology, which does it automatically. This is just one of the countless possibilities of the Internet of Things.

Your retail business becomes much more efficient when you equip “things” with sensors and connect them to the Internet. You can remotely see how much stock you have left, what the temperature is in your refrigerators and if there are too many customers in your point of sale. The Internet of Things (IoT) and data analytics offer these possibilities (and many more).

IoT allows you to monitor all your smart objects in real time and make adjustments.

When the car park is full, all you have to do is open the barrier to obtain additional parking space. Real-time information allows you to make smart decisions. IoT is increasingly used to increase security, cost efficiency and ease of use.

Are there not too many people in your store?

Proximus offers the “Entrance Monitoring” IoT solution: sensors installed at the entrance doors count the number of people. The merchant thus knows how many people are present at all times, which makes access control easier.

But there is still more you can do with this information. The number of visitors can be displayed on a screen so that customers know when it is safe to shop. And the merchant can use the data to avoid peak periods or attract more customers during low times.

The benefits of IoT in many industries

IoT can automate an incredible number of processes and make buildings smarter. You can automatically adapt the temperature or light to environmental factors to provide more comfort to the user and reduce energy consumption. With sensors, you can see when your machines need maintenance and even predict possible problems.

The investment pays off very quickly and this technology is easy to install.

This contributes to the image of your company because customers appreciate this additional service, reliability, security … And for managers, information is invaluable because “to measure is to know”. This allows them to better understand, control and automate their business.

The right app for the right use

The IoT offers so many possibilities that it is recommended to work with an experienced partner to implement your projects so that the solutions are perfectly adapted to the activities and specific needs of the organization.

Proximus is a leader in the field of innovation, IoT and data analysis.

When choosing AR or VR for your business measuring budget and your goals might be the most significant aspect. Keep the following points in mind;

Entice Customers with an In-house VR Experience

Implementing VR to attract customers can be a really good strategy because; there are still a lot of people not familiar with the VR experience. VR devices or technology is still not in reach to a lot of people, reasons can be it being expensive. So for the customers, who have not yet experienced VR (and those who have), VR can be fun. 

You can make a deal with a superstore or a mall to install a VR device. Customers then can simply put on their headsets and have a unique experience; this can leave a strong impression on a customer.  Check out the following video to get an idea;

Go Through Potential Customers

Every business’s main goal is to get more and more customers to make a profit. Many businesses forget to keep one thing in mind- customers reach.  If your idea, product, or content cannot reach potential customers then the whole hard work goes to the bin.

For companies or businesses that have their root in the entertainment or technology industry, the use of VR can prove to be successful.  The main goal of using VR is simple- the brand wants to paint their product (whatever they are offering) as unique, adventurous, modern, and innovative. Before you think to invest a substantial amount of money in VR make sure to ask some key questions;

  • Do your target audiences have access to VR-able devices?  Is VR the ‘legitimate’ thing or way to represent your brand?
  • Will your target audience like to use their VR devices for your product? Is there any other way to apply VR and save money?

Opt for AR to Reach Maximum Number of People

Remember Pokémon Go? What was the reason behind its huge success rate?

People went crazy over this game because they could play it whenever they wanted and wherever they desired. All they had to do was use their easily available mobile. AR is beneficial for the video game industry without a doubt, but it holds great scope for many other industries as well.

Businesses can help their audiences visualize what their product can look like in shape, quantity, or size. Familiar approaches of VR can be traced to popular social media apps as well such as Snapchat and Instagram. 

Scope of VR and AR in the Future

VR and AR are cousins, they have one big thing in common and that is the ability to alter our perception of the real world. You can escape from the world around you and experience something which for the first time can be described as ‘amazing’.

The HUGE difference between them is that Virtual Reality has the ability to transport the consumer or user. It can bring us to another land, a place very much similar to an unrealistic and imaginary one. How? Through closed visor or goggles.

Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Google Cardboardring a bell?

All these already famous VR gadgets are available in the market to give you an exciting Virtual Reality experience. If you have not heard or used any of these gadgets be ready to be blown away.

Putting a Virtual Reality headset over your eyes might leave you blind but will expand your other senses. With VR you might find yourself on top of Mount Everest or experience the battle of World War I or II your choice. The horizon of VR is wide enough to keep you interested forever. In the future, Virtual Reality may become a source of teaching students about the events of history, geography, famous personalities. The possibilities of watching and experiencing VR are infinite.

Check out the video below to experience VR:

Augmented Reality, on the other hand, uses digital elements and adds that to our current physical reality, and creates an artificial reality. It does not take us or move us to somewhere else like Virtual Reality. To say it in simple language, it “augments” our current state of presence.

What is the Real Difference Between Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality?

Think about scuba diving vs going to the aquarium.

We don’t know how many of you have done scuba diving, but it is one of the greatest adventures a person can experience in his or her lifetime. When you scuba dive, you are in the depths of the ocean, watching sea animals swim surrounding you, you feel the water, and much more.

And when you visit an aquarium, you get to see sea animals floating in the water but this time you are not swimming. You are viewing fishes, octopuses, and other animals doing their business.

The following video is for your understanding of Augmented Reality, enjoy;

With virtual reality, you can see a dolphin, know how it feels like to swim next to a dolphin. And in augmented reality, you can see a dolphin pop out of your business card. Both technologies are great and amazing, to begin with, for what purpose you require any of them is the real question.

While virtual reality is fantastic, augmented reality gives freedom to a marketer because it does not require a full-fledged video. With augmented reality, businesses get wide possibilities, they can be creative and create amazing things.

BBC Earth utilized augmented reality to give a unique experience to the public. The video is worth watching, people are mesmerized by the au watch and enjoy while waiting for their transport.

Why India is the best country for outsourcing PHP development projects?

Outsourcing will be beneficial when it comes to web development because of many reasons and this is what exactly we’ll be explaining today. It is nothing new and lots of companies go for outsourcing simply because of workload or limited resources. 

Before jumping to any conclusion, let us take a look at some of the interesting outsourcing facts and figure out why India is considered a major choice;

  • According to a Global Outsourcing Survey, conducted by the IT giant Deloitte, over 78% of business owners are content with their outsourcing partner.  
  • In an article published by Outsource2India, almost 82% of US-based companies voted India as their first choice for software outsourcing. 
  • According to another survey, 80% of firms in countries such as Europe and the The USA choose India for their outsourcing work. 
  • Cost 

    One of the most obvious and huge advantages of outsourcing PHP development projects is cost reduction. Every project comes with a budget and a cost that a company has to bear. Not all companies have the resources or efficiency to carry out the project smoothly. In such scenarios where cost spent is much more than received, outsourcing seems a great option.
  • Access to Pool of Talent 

    Outsourcing opens door to new creative ideas and solutions and at the same time gives opportunity to talent. Indian companies have highly skilled web developers that can deliver amazing results. This may be considered as a salient perk of outsourcing, with deep knowledge of PHP trends and expertise. 

    India without a doubt has earned the place of being called an IT hub worldwide. Due to the increasing demand for web developers in India, every company is delivering the best work to grab international projects. 
  • Reduction in Operating Costs 

    Typically a month-long PHP development project will cost you around $10,000 approximately. Contrary to it, if you go for a more budget-friendly option that is to outsource in India it will cost you only 20 to 30%. Ultimately your main goal is to get the result that is not only good but meets your expectation along with less expenditure. Hiring an Indian PHP development company is the first step to your goal.
  • Round the Clock Support and Less Development Time 

    By hiring an Indian company, you can utilize time and manage your business 24/7 as there is a difference of 12-hours between both countries’ time zones. With the help of useful apps such as Slack and Skype, communication has become easier. Most outsourcing companies have day and night shift that makes support system stronger.

  • Language Barrier: A Myth 

    English is the main language in Indian companies for decades for work and communication. The language barrier does not exist simply and even if it does due to accent it can be managed by text communication. To say it gingerly, you will not face any difficulty in communication. 
  • Increased Security 

    PHP is a secure scripting language but that doesn’t mean completely conceal. When you hire an outsourcing partner to work on website development they will make sure of security. After years of practice, PHP language makes a developer well acquainted with its weak points and PHP trends.

    In such a scenario, they can use safeguards to keep a tab on any vulnerability such as Content Security Policy (CSP). CSP can detect attacks such as Cross-Site Scripting and act as a security barrier for your website. 
  • Team of Dedicated Developers

    Whether you hire a team or an individual, it depends on you but if you go for a team then you can get the following benefits; 
  • 24/7 support
  • Focus on core in-house developments
  • Scope of multiple revisions
  • A creative and different vision
  • Fast trouble-shooting 
  • Big work force= fast results 

A company may hire a team because its developers cannot handle numerous numbers of projects. This creates a burden on your team which eventually leads to poor work performance. Hiring a team gives your company developers to focus on projects and give outstanding results. 

  • Time to Market 

    It is salient to create your website or app as fast as possible to decrease its time in the market. This way you can stay ahead of your competition, and your business can flourish. Creating a website and app is merely the first step; the real journey begins after you create your project. 

Generally, PHP requires less time and is efficient. If you outsource your project to an external partner, they cannot only reduce time, but your business will be their single priority. 

Conclusion: Web developers keep themselves aware of the latest PHP trends and can deliver outstanding results. Outsourcing should be considered when handling a business; we have shared several benefits of outsourcing to Indian companies. You can build a trusting relationship with an external outsourcing partner that can last for years to come. 

We, at Trigma, offer affordable and effective PHP development services. We have a team of consisting 200 software engineers who are experts in their field. With 12 years of experience, we have delivered hundreds of PHP projects to our clients.
