How Artificial Intelligence is Reinventing the World of Mapping Technology

With much of our lives dependent on digital maps and navigation systems, can we even think of going back to physical maps? The good news is that we don’t have to. As we bid farewell to physical maps and introduce new mapping and navigation technologies, we are getting a glimpse into the future, and it certainly looks promising. Artificial intelligence, as we know it, is the present and the future. It is the driving force behind today’s smart technologies – from mobile phones to homes. Let’s dig a little deeper to see the marvellous effects AI has had on mapping technology and how it’s shaping our lives for the better. AI and Mapping In the past, most of us relied on outdated maps or bought new ones every time we wanted to travel. Not anymore. We now have AI to thank for seamless and efficient travel. Giving AI the reigns of navigation and mapping, users may choose from a number of options when travelling thanks to AI and mapping technologies. GPS systems function as a lifeline for keeping us on track, whether we are travelling by car, bus, or on foot. From cab drivers to pedestrians, getting from point A to B has become a lot easier and more efficient. Let’s take, for instance, a popular one – Google maps, with AI, is a force to reckon with. To provide us with smooth travel, it has partnered with DeepMind, an Alphabet AI research lab, to enhance the accuracy of its traffic assessment and prediction skills.

AI’s role in simplifying our lives

The growth in the popularity of AI is largely due to its ability to simplify our lives. From planning your daily schedule to booking a cab, AI is there for you. With access to a number of services, like Google Assistant and Siri, you can get most of your daily tasks done with just a few words. For example, if you want to book a cab and are running late for a meeting, you can just call on your AI-powered device and book it with your preferred driver.

AI uses data fed to it to make our lives easier

AI acts as a virtual assistant that uses data fed to it to make your lives easier. From weather reports to navigation, the services provided by AI are endless. Imagine planning a trip, and AI provides you with the best places to visit based on your preferences. In addition, it provides you with information such as the best time to visit, the best way to get there, and the hotels you should stay in. Sounds too good to be true, right? But that’s exactly what AI does for you.

The data for AI allows it to predict traffic conditions by analyzing historical traffic patterns.

Before you step out in a busy street to reach your office or shop, you can check for the traffic conditions using an AI-powered device. AI is equipped with a number of sensors that help it understand the current traffic patterns and predict how the traffic will be in the future. AI uses historical data, such as traffic flow information from nearby cameras, to make accurate predictions. These are just a few of the ways AI is changing the world of mapping technology. With such advancements, there’s no telling what the future holds. Perhaps, as we bid farewell to physical maps, we are also bidding farewell to the old world.
