Unexpected Industries Being Affected by AI

Artificial Intelligence is arguably the most game-changing, disruptive technology to penetrate the fabric of society in hundreds of years. It promises to transform how we do just about everything—and not just the industries you might suspect. Forget about the obvious sectors like tech, finance, and software development; AI’s influence extends far beyond those domains. 

Today, we’ll discuss some markets that artificial intelligence promises to influence that you might not expect — from the legal professions and fashion to agriculture and the culinary arts. We’ll even explore how AI’s algorithms will soon affect romance, dating, and your social life! 

So, let’s take a look at a handful of surprising applications of artificial intelligence and how technology is reshaping the landscape of these industries and more. 

Online Dating and Romance

Are you ready for computers to find you the ideal mate and manage your social calendar? 

After talking to the team over at DatingApps.com, they are convinced that the future of AI will have a significant impact on online dating. In fact, the leading dating apps already use matchmaking algorithms that analyze users’ preferences, compatibility data, interactions, and a variety of other factors to introduce them to the best potential partners. The AI software on some apps will even study the conversations and information users share with their matches to learn what an individual is searching for in a partner and then filter profiles to fit their desire. 

While this may sound like an invasion of privacy, it’s actually meant to do the opposite and keep users safe. Eventually, AI can be used on dating apps to detect fake profiles and flag users who intend to sign up for these signs to harass, catfish, or scam other users. If that’s not enough of a relief, get ready to understand the meaning behind a text message. Yep. You read that correctly. Gone are the days of having to read between the lines. Advances in AI allow dating platforms to analyze text to gauge emotional response and compatibility. By understanding communication patterns, AI could even predict the longevity or success of a relationship.


If you’ve ever played The Sims, you know what it’s like to sort through a virtual closet and choose clothes for your avatar. And yep, you guessed it: This will be the future of fashion when AI gets involved. AI is expected to transform the way we design, produce, and consume clothing from the beginning to the end of the process. By analyzing consumer data and predicting trends, Artificial Intelligence can generate new and innovative designs that can help designers create more personalized outfits tailored to individual preferences.

AI can then predict consumer demand and optimize the manufacturing process to reduce waste, both by speeding up the supply chain process and identifying sustainable materials. 

This will only get more personalized as AI grows. AI can study your measurements, preferences, and style and then sort through the interweb for outfits that perfectly match your unique style and taste. Get prepared to enter your very own Sims game. With the help of augmented reality, you can step into an avatar for a virtual try-on. Have your very own fashion show with potential outfits before making a purchase. No more refunds necessary.  

Culinary Arts

Believe it or not, artificial intelligence is making its way into the food we eat. And while we’re not yet at the place of having physical robots cook our food in the kitchen, we’re well on our way there. The impact of AI on the culinary industry is already making a dent.

Not only can AI develop new recipes from current ones, but it can also analyze patterns in the food industry and suggest unusual combinations of flavors and ingredients, potentially creating new recipes in seconds that may take a chef months to discover. AI is already being used to develop personalized nutrition recommendations and meal plans based on an individual’s dietary requirements. By creating custom menus targeted toward a person’s needs and preferences, those with food allergies or sensitivities can rest assured they’re getting what they need.

Although AI is already being used to optimize delivery routes, ensuring food arrives on time, it’s likely the future will get even more hands-on. AI can monitor food quality, ensuring restaurants meet the standards required by the food industry. By analyzing data on food storage and preparation, AI can identify and rid restaurants of health risks, preventing food-borne illnesses. 


Keep in mind that food has to come from somewhere. And if AI is going to be entering our kitchen, then you better believe they’re going to play a part in the growth of our food, too. By analyzing drone data on farms, AI can cultivate plans to help farmers optimize crop growth, reducing water usage and scaling back on fertilizer application. 

AI-powered robots and drones can be used for planting seeds and harvesting crops, reducing the need for manual labor and allowing farmers to produce more with higher efficiency and fewer resources. 

As part of the planting process, AI could also test the soil and crops for pests and diseases, helping farmers take corrective action early on to avoid crop loss. These efforts can increase sustainability and reduce humanity’s carbon footprint, assisting farmers in reducing their environmental impact–and likely giving us, the consumers, healthier food.


A recent study showed how Chat GPT passed the US medical licensing exam without a doctor’s input–and if you thought understanding medical terms was difficult, get ready because the world of law is next. AI is poised to significantly impact how legal professionals work and how their services are delivered. In the blink of an eye, AI can be used to review, analyze, and process legal documents and contracts into lamens’ terms, not only helping lawyers identify critical issues and extract relevant information but assisting clients in understanding exactly what they’re signing.

If understanding complicated terminology isn’t impressive enough, AI is well on its way to absorbing decades of research from cases and legal journals to assist lawyers in fighting for their clients. Lawyers will be able to access relevant case law and legal precedents faster than ever. Legal assistants will likely be the first to go. AI-powered virtual assistants can help lawyers manage their workload, schedule appointments, draft documents, and conduct research while simultaneously functioning as a chat box to provide affordable and accessible legal advice to impoverished individuals. By studying trends and past trials, AI will be able to analyze data and predict the outcome of a specific case, allowing lawyers to develop more effective legal strategies. 


Wrapping Things Up

Are robots taking over the world? The jury’s still out on that one, but if we’re not careful, then the future of Artificial Intelligence could unfold a lot like a Black Mirror episode. With the right direction, future AI-powered solutions could increase efficiency and productivity and improve sustainability and accessibility—but at what cost this will affect the labor force is still to be seen. AI’s full impact on these industries is yet to be realized. Still, one thing is for sure: It’s up to innovators and industry leaders to embrace these emerging technologies and not only find new ways to leverage their potential but ensure that human ingenuity doesn’t take a back burner to AI-driven innovation.
