The Artificial Intelligence (AI) industry is a $200 billion industry predicted to grow to $1 trillion by 2035.

The term artificial intelligence was first coined in 1956 by US computer scientist John McCarthy. Until recently, the public mostly heard about AI in Hollywood movies like The Terminator or whenever it defeated a human in a competition.

How does AI affect me?

Your life is being made significantly easier by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics, and you probably haven’t even noticed.

In 2016 there was $640 million invested in AI and by 2025 that figure is expected to grow to $37 billion.

These rising industries are revolutionizing fields from medicine to agriculture, and nearly everything in between, in ways that most people have never considered.

Artificial Intelligence on Cruise Ships of the Future.

Will we see Robots on Cruise Ships?

The Covid-19 global pandemic has disrupted cruise line operations. 

As with many industries, emerging technology will be used to enable cruise ships to recommence operations safely when restrictions are eased. 

Cruise passengers may notice quite a few differences as artificial intelligence is becoming more widely used and future technology is employed, both on board cruise ships and at the boarding terminals.  In an effort to reduce human-to-human contact, humanoid robots may soon be introduced to assist cruise passengers.  Robots using AI could become a familiar sight around the passageways of cruise ships. 

It is possible that robots using AI will play an increasingly significant role on cruise ships of the future.  The main role for new artificial intelligence applications will be in keeping passengers safe and healthy when on cruise ships.

Meeting your first robot cabin sanitiser on a passenger ship may be a bit daunting as cruise passengers may have to get used to communicating with humanoids instead of real people.
