Artificial Intelligence

You want to take advantage of all artificial intelligence has to offer to transform both your personal and professional lives and luckily we find ourselves in a transformative era where an increasingly high number of AI tools are popping up, giving us more chances to integrate AI into our daily lives. And the best part? Lots of them are free and quite easy to use, making their adoption simple. 

The exact app that you should use will depend on your interests and needs, of course, but in this article, we’ll list eight of the best free AI apps that you should check out, in addition to a little bit of background surrounding AI apps and why they’re worth your time. 

Ready to transform your AI journey? Let’s dive right in.

What Can AI Do For You?

By now you’re probably well-versed in the fact that artificial intelligence is everywhere. Like, everywhere. And there’s a reason for that: it’s an incredibly useful technology that has completely transformed a multitude of sectors and personal lives, bringing a higher understanding of users and their needs to companies worldwide. 

You might think of fancy computers or even robots when you hear about artificial intelligence, and we get it: it’s so powerful, after all, that it seems like whatever is behind it must be large and intimidating. But the reality is that AI is everywhere and if we learn how to harness it, we can benefit from the following: 

  • Advanced and instant recognition of patterns and trends: from fraud detection on your mobile banking apps to recommendations about the next show you should watch or song you should listen to, AI tools are able to analyze large amounts of data incredibly fast to identify patterns and trends–and things that don’t add up. 

  • Virtual assistants and chatbots to help customer service efforts: the majority of queries have simple answers and when virtual assistants or chatbots are trained to handle general questions or concerns, it frees up the time for humans to focus on more demanding projects.

  • Language and transcription assistance: traveling and trying to understand a menu? Or need to view a podcast transcription to later turn it into written content? AI tools can both translate and transcribe for you, saving you tons of time. 

We could go on and on because trust us, there are tons of applications of AI and as its use becomes more widely accepted (and even preferred), the tools out there will only continue to grow. That’s why we’ve collected eight of our favorite (and free!) AI apps that can help you work better, but not harder.
