Using Artificial Intelligence in Websites and Web Applications

Have you ever thought of getting help for building your websites and web application without giving anybody credit other than yourself? Ever wanted genuine, honest, intelligent, obedient Business – Partner, a 24-hours hard-working Employee who doesn’t complain about anything, does not demand bonus?

Well such qualities won’t be found in a human but Artificial Intelligence(AI) would workout

Artificial intelligence programs are already used successfully by Google and Wikipedia, the technology is more than within our grasp to allow us to develop software which can think and act as a human without requiring the manpower. Remember, most all of the AI on your phone and desktops is communicating with cloud services, so keep in mind that most solutions are a blend that highly leverages cloud capabilities.

Coming from a leading AI researcher at Facebook: “Facebook today cannot exist without AI. Every time you use Facebook or Instagram or Messenger, you may not realize it, but your experiences are being powered by AI”. 

An AI for developing website - 
  • A DIY website builder service known as The Grid, gives users the chance to engage with its artificial intelligence program Molly to create static websites.
  • Of know what users, want their website to look like, Molly engages them in on-on-one conversations. 
  • It then creates these websites based on what it learns from these conversations.
How can AI help?
Take example of Facebook-
  • Facebook builds its business by learning about its users and packaging their data for advertisers.
  • It then reinvests this money into offering us new, useful functionality – currently video and shopping which it also uses to learn even more about us
  • As the way it enables communication and conversation between people has proven to be hugely valuable to us, it has become a magnet for a huge amount of data about us – who we are, where we spend our time and what we like.
Another Example would be of who have developed 2 AIs namely Watson and Echo who handle Big Data, Data Warehousing and Data Mining. 

One of the recent innovations are conversational interfaces. Enabling artificially intelligent solutions to converse, retain what they learned from conversations and base their decisions accordingly has enabled them to offer more intuitive experiences to users. Example – Tacobot developed by tacobell:

What are AI software that can be developed further or used? 
  • Using AI in web applications we can make such software or applications which can deal with complex problems and find the solution in a more human-like fashion. 
  • AI poses a lot of possibilities for web app developers hoping to bring the same intuitive experiences with their own products. 
  • A personal assistant for your website or web application can be developed like Apple (Siri), Google (Allo) and Microsoft (Cortana).

Hi .How Can I Help You?” 

Some already developed AIs that can be used in your web application- 
  • Gluru: Organize your online documents, calendars, emails and other data and have AI present you with new insights and actionable information. 
  • – An AI which can set your meetings. 
  • Crystalknows analyses your emails and helps you adjust your email style to better communicate with your recipient. 
  • RecordedFuture: Leverages natural language processing at massive scale in real time to collect and understand more than 700,000 web sources. 
  • Tamr: Unique approaches to Big Data. 
  • LegalRobot: Automating legal document review in ways that can serve people and businesses. 
  • Jade: Java Agent Development Framework. Simplifies multi-agent system development. 
  • Seldon: An open, enterprise-grade machine learning platform that adds intelligence to organizations. 
  • DigitalGenius: Computer driven conversation with customers in ways that scale and serve. 
  • Conversica: AI to help you find your next customer, including automated email conversations to qualify leads. 
  • Scaled Inference: Cloud based models and an inference engine to help in model selection. 
  • Build smarter machine learning/AI applications that are fast and scalable. 

No doubt more web developers will develop these types of programs, each one widening the scope of technology’s ability and power. AI systems are ubiquitous in major enterprises. “AI is an enabling layer that will improve every business” as said by Jeff Bezos- founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of AI is next big thing every developer, business firm, IT Professional should focus and invest on.

Motion UI - Emerging trend in the web application

A user will quickly lose his interest in your web application (app) if it not appealing or interactive. If it is just a dumb static web application, then user will quickly switch to another app of your competitor. User nowadays are not only focusing on the content of the app but also on how the app will quickly give results in minimal time and meet his expectations. Developers need to bring their app to “life”, increase movement, and overall create a ‘living’ site which reacts and changes according to each individual user.

Motion UI is a front-end framework used for building such fully responsive web designed apps. No longer are web applications two dimensional with boring experience. The Motion UI includes predefined motions that are easily accessible and can be put to use for any project. With 36% (or 2382 votes) it is stated by Forbes users that this will be the most important web development trend for you in 2017.
Motion UI is a SaaS library (Software as Service) provided by ZURB. It is widely used for quickly creating animations and CSS transitions. With Motion UI, it is less complicated to make an app’s transitions look smooth and rich with predefined motions. Motion UI has more than two dozen animation classes and built-in transition that make prototyping easy.  It is also possible to preview the effects with the help of library, when you navigate to a production environment. 

Latest Version:
The newest version of Motion UI works through flexible CSS patterns with all kinds of JavaScript libraries and enables seamless integration of animations into websites. The way prototypical animated elements integrate seamlessly into websites would definitely makes Motion UI one of the most preferred libraries by developers.

Elements of Motion UI

  • Animations are great way of telling a story and it is much simplified further by motion UI
  • Animations and transitions allow designers to visualize change and differentiate content.
  • Animations and transitions are moving effects that help users recognize when something changes on the site, for example they click on a button and a new piece of information appears on the screen.
  • Adding movement to apps and websites improves user experience, as it allows users to make sense of content in a more intuitive way.
  • Animations work great for loading spinners, creating eye-catching CTAs and for error states.
  • The Motion UI includes CSS Animations for displaying content along with subtle effects and movement.
  • Motion UI also powers some components of the Foundation framework, such as the Orbit slider, the Toggler switcher, and the Reveal modal, so it’s a pretty robust tool.


  • Motion UI unable us to guide user throughout the website on how to operate things and move through website.
  • Objects feels like they have actual physical mass and respond in ways that the human mind anticipates.
  • They contract or stretch when moved. There is a level of realism so that users can relate.
  •  In actual sense, it puts life into your website and so a sense of positive emotional response from user is generated.

  • A Motion UI design is intuitive and responsive.
  • This is because every reaction of the motion UI should be comprehensible and complementary to the user action.
  • Don't forget that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, as Newton's Third Law of Physics tells us and that holds true for motion UI design.
Focusing merely on the latest design frameworks and techniques are not just the only things for building a great app. A good design should be governed primarily by the element of simplicity for a cleaner approach and better functionality. Using Motion UI wisely is a key to attract wide range of users to your site and keep them engaged on your site

Cloud based enterprise application - Advantages and future

Running a successful business? If Yes, then i am sure you are ready to complain about the painstaking manual business process and operations. The automation of these process can be done through Enterprise applications.

These enterprise application can be stand alone applications in your environment or rested on cloud n which can be accessed anywhere as per requirement. These Enterprise applications can range from Online shopping, Billing, Security, Planning, Business Intelligence, HR Management, Enterprise Resource planning (ERP), IT service management, Business process Management, content switching Module and many more that you can think of.

To understand the term Cloud based enterprise application, lets divide it into two fragments:

 Cloud based:
  • It is a term that refers to applications, services or resources made available to users on demand 
  • via the Internet from a cloud computing provider’s server 
  • So, in our case a cloud application, or cloud app, is basically a software program where cloud-based and local components work together and relies on remote servers for processing logic that is accessed through a web browser with a continual internet connection.

 Enterprise Application (EA):

  • An Enterprise is a word that is referred to huge business company or organization 
  • An Enterprise application (EA) is a large software system platform designed to operate in a corporate environment such as business, organization and government. EAs are developed using enterprise architecture. 
  • EAs are complex, scalable, component-based, distributed and mission critical.. 
  • Why do we need EA?-- EA software is a critical component of any computer-based information system. 
  • EA software ultimately enhances efficiency and productivity through business level support functionality. 
  • So, basically making your Enterprise application software cloud-based would be termed as cloud based enterprise mobile application. 



Cloud-based services are ideal for businesses with growing or fluctuating bandwidth demands. If your needs increase it’s easy to scale up or down your cloud capacity, drawing on the service’s remote servers.

    Where in the past, people would run applications or programs from software downloaded on a physical computer or server in their building, but now cloud computing allows people access to the same kinds of applications through the internet. In short, cloud is fast becoming the new normal. By the end of 2018 it’s estimated that 90% of UK businesses will be using at least one cloud based enterprise application.
     Disaster recovery and Backup:
Cloud- Based application has a backup and recovery option as the data is spread over internet and remote server as the least damage thus saving time, money and loss.

Increased collaboration:
When your teams can access, edit and share documents anytime,and also conduct remote conferences/meetings from anywhere, they’re able to do more together, and do it much better in real time.

Work from anywhere:
With cloud computing, if you’ve got an internet connection you can be at work. So, providing work from Home jobs or Interns won't be troublesome.

Transparency :
When you make the move to cloud computing, all files are stored centrally and everyone sees one version of the truth. Greater visibility means improved collaboration.

Lost laptops are a billion dollar business problem as all projects ,sensitive data may lose. Because your data is stored in the cloud, you can access it no matter what happens to your machine. And you can even remotely wipe data from lost laptops so it doesn’t get into the wrong hands.

Moving to the cloud gives access to enterprise-class technology, for everyone. It also allows smaller businesses to act faster than big, established competitors.


The above advantages thus specify why in recent years , more and more companies are adapting to cloud based Enterprise application for their Businesses . Still these are predictions of Cloud based enterprise application based on survey conducted by IDC(Business Consultant) and Gartner(Research company):

More application availability on the cloud 
With most new enterprise software being built for cloud from the outset, it is predicted that by 2018 over a quarter of all applications (around 48 million) will be available on the cloud.

Increased growth in the market for cloud: 
Based on their forecast for 2011-2017, Gartner expects adoption to hit $250 billion by 2018. Also, Gartner also suggested that the worldwide EA software as a service (SaaS) market would grow at an astounding yearly growth rate of 20.2 percent This means it will be growing from $18.2 billion in 2012 to $45.6 billion in 2017.

Increased development for the cloud-based EA software : 
More development is going to go to the cloud-based Technologies.IDC concurs with Gartner regarding the growth of these IT services and suggests that 20 percent of all application revenue in 2014 will be generated by SaaS(Software as a Service). 

More Innovations in Enterprise applications because of Cloud: 
Increased competition in the cloud space will give way to better products, services and innovations in Enterprise applications.
