Even if one cannot afford these small robots, AI techs like digital assistants have now entered every other household. These AI-based digital assistants offer home automation, allowing one to control a house’s thermostat, lights, and other devices along with basic features like message dictation, Internet searches, alarms, scheduling, reminders, calculation, and music playbacks. AI is also being constantly used in the development of coronavirus vaccine as it helps in reading the genetic structure of the virus faster and help scientists to design a cure quicker.

With constant funding in both big-tech AI companies and startups, this technology has a brighter future than anticipated. In the first quarter of this year, nearly 500 AI startups across 42 countries have raised more than $8.4 billion, per a CB Insights report.
