‘Siri’ous Artificial Intelligence in Mobile Apps
Now that Artificial Intelligence is virtually in the palm of your hand (smartphone), we begin the struggle to come-to grips with it. In the recent past a mention of AI conjured mental images of sentient robots of popular movies, but today these images include medical possibilities or innovational challenges.
The evolution of AI is always a process that requires constant attention, and rightly so. But for Artificial Intelligence to produce its jaw-dropping out-comes, enormous amounts of data are required. So over the past few years it’s been busy collecting it from any and all possible sources. One of those sources being the iPhone.
Start-up companies have already emerged that leverage the availability of this storage of data on cloud servers. This data has opened doors for more creative apps based in AI. But what about privacy? Today, 90% of this mass of global data has been generated in the past two years alone, but privacy has not been translated over into these apps.
Mobile generation(s) have eagerly surrendered their personal data to AI, in hopes of increased convenience and personalization (an action they later regret). Market reports are estimating the AI industry to be worth $42 billion by the end of 2015.
AI also infers a future employment shift with Information Technology leading the way.

Let’s begin a process to make the term ‘Digital Divide’ obsolete by making everyone equal, at least where knowledge of Mobile Device Technology is concerned.
