I am trying to do some experiments with some intelligent agents, but I'm not sure how significant they will be in the future. Can someone explain some interesting scenarios, maybe some use-cases of intelligent agents in the future?

For instance, it can be used as a virtual assistant instead of a real call agent. But what can be a more appealing application in the future?

Well, what I can think about at the moment is the following scenarios :

  • Decision Maker : If you have any problem making a decision, chatbots can be used to weight evidence and give you statistics to rule out bad decisions.

  • Online Teacher : In the far future, chatbots may acquire human-like skills, they maybe used to teach different students (from different backgrounds) at once, but the advantage here is that the chatbot can evaluate every student's level (skills, personality, intelligence...etc), and use this data to decide how to convey information to him (differently). It would be like a virtual world were children receive information in parallel, while taking different data about them into consideration : They can be used to better education.

  • Social Media : I think chatbots will be integrated in social media, to analyse messages and comments, and warn users that some friends will dislike this or that or find it offensive, to give him time for making a decision about what to say. This would help limit bullying on social media.

  • Language Learning : in the future (like in 10 - 20 years), chatbots will have the ability to generate human level language, that would make it possible for them to generate infinite sentences and structures just like humans can do, and again they can evaluate user's level to generate listening and reading material. For a human, it would be just like talking to a native speaker of that language (or even better, since this "native speaker" would know everything about your level).

There is a lot more, but this is what I can think of right now.

    $\begingroup$ This question is broad,basing on my analysis,all the points in the answer are merits of Chabots Only.When we talk about intelligent agents,it's not only about Chabots.Thanks for your insightful knowledge.It's based on current application not the future! $\endgroup$ – quintumnia Jan 19 '18 at 19:08
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, I agree ... and there might also be other applications for needs that will emerge in the future, a mouse and graphics are needs that only emerged after the invention of computers. $\endgroup$ – SmootQ Jan 21 '18 at 12:20

    $\begingroup$ the most inportant applications are expert system, like Decision Maker you wrote here and autonomus system replacing general- purpose worker. And it is nothing to do with chat bots $\endgroup$ – user8426627 Jun 22 at 17:49
  • $\begingroup$ @user8426627 Decision making is a very difficult and challenging application of AI. The apparently easy way we, humans, make decisions is a very naive abstraction of very complex and sophisticated algorithms lurking in the background of our mind (brain). $\endgroup$ – SmootQ Jun 29 at 18:17

    $\begingroup$ yes, but what is a very difficult and challenging, is also most important $\endgroup$ – user8426627 Jun 29 at 18:36
