The next time you go to a casino in Canada to play blackjack, it just might be a robot dealing your cards to you instead of a human. Recently, Canada has made big advancements in the area of artificial intelligence as it pertains to gambling. Innovators in Canada are currently working on an online gambling platform that is specifically tailored to each individual client.
Of course, the intersection of artificial intelligence and gambling has been around for quite some time now. 20 years ago, world famous chess champion, Garry Kasparov, went up against the Deep Blue Computer, an artificial intelligence system designed by IBM. The computer was so technologically advance that it was able to beat him. However, the evolution of artificial intelligence is not merely limited to an endless battle between man and machine.
For example, LeoVegas, a Swedish online casino and mobile gaming company, has developed 118 games and each one is custom-made for each Canadian player. This includes such notable games as slots, roulette variants, blackjack and many more. The system is designed to gather information from each time a player plays one of the games and use that information to develop a more user-friendly interface for each individual. Additionally, the use of artificial intelligence will allow for more user-friendly service bots rather than the generic ones they have now.
These personalized customer service bots will be programmed with your individual preferences in mind and will be designed to meet your every need more quickly and more efficiently. Thought it's unclear how long it will be before these bots make their way on to the market, it seems like these new bots will undoubtedly be a huge success and prove to be quite profitable.
The result will be more user-friendly bots that are designed to be much more reliable and efficient. And it's not just players who will benefit from these technological advances. The casinos will also be able to increase their efficiency. They're currently working on AI technology that will enable casinos to monitor player's behaviors and mannerisms. This way, if any of the players try to cheat or count cards, the casino will be notified.
The fact is these new innovations open up a whole new world for the gambling industry and appear to be making the gambling landscape far more friendly, helpful and efficient. Many people estimate that the casino industry will be completely transformed within the next 20 years. It's estimated that Canada altogether earns up to $13 billion in revenue every year from gambling alone making it quite the lucrative business.
The industry has grown quite a bit over the years due to the surging popularity and ubiquity of online casinos. Now with the increase in AI and the surge of more user-friendly interfaces, the industry is on track to become one of the most profitable in the country. What that means for the rest of the world is uncertain at the moment but, for now, it seems to be a good way to bring people together.
