Unless you just came out of a cave, you must have heard about machine learning. We cannot begin to describe how it has changed the life we are living, but we will try with this blog.

“Wow! How did they know I wanted this?” 

No, not Santa Claus, we are talking about shopping and steaming apps. Shopping apps show you your dream outfits while streaming apps are some mentalists that recommend just the show that you would like to watch. 

Are they prophets? When did they read the tarot cards you picked? Who hired wizards at the Netflix office?

You must have wondered why their guesswork is so accurate. Obviously, they do not have fortune-tellers as their employees. On the contrary, you tell them everything knowing-unknowingly. How?

The information that you give to the apps, the choices you make, everything goes to their database. This data is analyzed, understood and acted upon. All this is possible because of machine and data learning. 

Machine learning in apps has impacted the way they interact with users. Apps have become more efficient and successfully serve the users catering to their individual needs. And businessmen have started to take a note of this. This explains why it is a great idea to develop machine learning applications. 

We did a bit of research to find out if the future trends are as promising as the present ones. We are happy to announce, we were not disappointed.

  • With machine learning, Amazon has reduced the time between users clicking the buy button and their items being shipped to just 15 minutes on average – a 225% reduction, according to Wolfstat.

We can’t think many sectors that haven’t been impacted by the apps that use machine learning. To give you a brief idea, we will talk about 4 areas where machine learning apps have proven their importance. Who knows, you might as well get some machine learning app ideas for your business.

4 Categories of Machine Learning Apps That Are Growing Tremendously

ML is used to estimate the time of delivery which is pretty important for most of the customers. If it takes too long, they’d rather buy it from a store. 

ML is used to study user behaviour and help in predicting future buying patterns. This gives a huge boost to sales as well as marketing departments. 

They would never show advertisements for products that have already been bought by the customer. Instead, show recommended products that other people have bought along with the first product. Think Amazon again. Makes more sense right?

ML-based apps have many more applications in this industry, we know. This is just a glimpse. Feel free to tell us your suggestions in the comments section. 

#2. Entertainment apps

Now, think Netflix. No, no. Don’t stop reading to go chill. Just stay with us for a little longer.

Netflix uses Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Data Science to give you the best streaming experience. This is why it is so addictive. In no other time in human history has this much content been created and consumed.
