As we know Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning has become the new rising wave in the ocean of technology. When it comes to technological revolution and empowerment both of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are in trend.

Assume a world of traditional technologies, simple calculators were available to make calculations. They could perform only arithmetic calculations within some range of digits. As advancement in technology occurred, scientific calculators were developed. They were able to perform arithmetic, logarithmic, trigonometric as well as basic scientific calculations. It shows that technologies are being developed day to day. Since the revolution in technologies has created a positive aspect in empowering the technological world.

Many top companies have shifter them to build AI-enabled products. Here are some of them discussed below:

Google: Google has shifted itself to build AI based projects. It has launched “Cloud Auto ML” which helps to make machine learning models for business to provide quality services.

Since machine learning models need to be trained with a high dataset and it can only be achieved via GPUs in an efficient time limit. Thus by this way NVIDIA is providing professionals, researchers, and scientists with the power of their processors.

Apple: Siri is a part of Apple Inc. which is an intelligent virtual assistant. It is an AI-based product as it uses, natural language processing, speech recognition and voice recognition to understand the human language and make an interface with them.
