Whether you want to get fit, run a business, create your own blog, or just pass some time with a virtual buddy, there’s an intelligent app for you. Unlike the first generation of apps, intelligent apps use artificial intelligence (AI) to provide customized services using real-time data and algorithms.
Here are 11 of the most exciting AI apps around, all available for both Android and iOS:
Top Intelligent Apps
This AI health app draws on an extensive, detailed database of symptoms and health conditions. After analyzing your information, Ada generates an assessment of the most likely underlying cause. Based on the results, Ada will tell you what to do next and offer self-care advice.
Lyra is a personal assistant who can understand human speech. Lyra can translate words into other languages, tell you the latest weather forecast, manage your schedule, search the web, and much more. She can even tell you jokes and play your favourite videos.
MeetFrank’s creators describe the app as a “secret job market.” The app makes it easy for you to contact companies looking to hire people with your skillset anonymously. You can find out how much they are willing to pay for your dream role, and discreetly talk to prospective employers. The app uses complex algorithms to match companies with candidates.
#4. Calorie Mama AI
Calorie Mama calculates calories in your food using deep learning. This smart camera app quickly analyzes a photo of your meal to generate a full nutritional profile. The app has been engineered to recognize dishes from around the world, so you can keep track of your diet wherever you happen to be. As more people use the app, Calorie Mama continues to add more foods to its database. It can also make tailored dietary recommendations to each user.
#5. ELSA Speak
ELSA, which is short for English Language Speech Assistant, is an all-in-one language learning app that teaches users how to speak American English. ELSA incorporates industry-leading speech recognition technology to analyze a user’s progress and highlight common mistakes. ELSA will show you exactly how to move your lips and tongue to improve your pronunciation and will create a curriculum tailored to your needs as a learner.
Do you need to design a website, perhaps for yourself or your business? With Leia, you don’t need any coding knowledge. Simply tell Leia the kind of website you want, using either your keyboard or voice, and the app will use AI to generate a design. You can answer questions to refine your website’s style. If you don’t like the result, Leia will try again until you are satisfied. Your new site comes with a free “site.live” domain name.
Wysa’s creators describe it as “an interactive journal meets life coach.” If you need to talk to someone about your problems and feelings, but don’t want to confide in a friend or relative, Wysa is there for you. Based on the principles of cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), Wysa empowers you to reframe your negative thoughts, feel happier, and check yourself for symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Wysa includes a friendly penguin chatbot that uses AI to generate helpful questions that help you see your problems from a new perspective – or you can just use it to vent. If you’d like to improve your mindfulness and relaxation skills, Wysa offers step-by-step exercises that will calm you down quickly. The app was designed with women in mind, but men could also benefit from it.
If Wysa is a little too feminine for your tastes, try Replika instead. Like Wysa, it’s billed as an AI assistant who can monitor and improve your mental health. Replika has been programmed with a caring, humanlike persona that can offer comfort and support at any hour of the day or night.
Replika can teach you new coping skills and support you as you work towards important life goals. Whether you want to improve your social skills, learn how to regain your composure in a tough situation, or offload your worries, Replika is always there to steer you in the right direction. The app remembers your past conversations so it can offer ongoing support, just like a human counsellor.
#9. Lumi News
With so many news sites and social media platforms, how do you keep track of the news stories that matter to you? The Lumi app was created to help users stay abreast of the latest developments around the world.
Lumi uses AI to cultivate a newsfeed that is tailored to your preferences. When you open the app, you can swipe left to dismiss a story, or swipe right to read more. If you give the app access to your location, it will incorporate local news into your feed. You can choose your preferred news sources, allowing you to create a newsfeed that aligns with your political views.
#10. Olivia AI
If you want to master your budget and learn to spend your money more wisely, Olivia is your new best friend. A virtual assistant that generates insights about your spending habits and even predicts your next purchase, she is on hand 24/7 to offer you financial advice. It’s easy to connect the app securely to your bank accounts for continual tracking.
Olivia is free to use, and there are no annoying adverts to disrupt your experience. So far, over 500K people have signed up. Olivia AI is available on the App Store, and will soon be coming to Android.
Possibly the best homework helper around, simply take a photo of your homework and let Socratic take you through the solution, step by step. Socratic doesn’t just tell you the correct answer – it also provides videos and in-depth explanations that develop your understanding. It can offer assistance for students studying almost any subject, including maths, science, and history.
What’s Next For AI?
We already have access to some amazing AI apps, but the AI revolution is far from over. In the future, AI will take on even greater importance in our daily routines. For example, virtual personal assistants that anticipate our needs and coordinate all aspects of our lives may become the norm.
AI algorithms will become increasingly sophisticated, which will enable apps to become more humanlike and empathetic. AI might even usurp the entertainment industry; rather than use human actors and directors, AI applications may be able to generate films and songs tailored to each user instantly. AI is here to stay and, thanks to AI apps, has the power to make our lives much more comfortable.
