Artificial Intelligence, or AI as it’s more commonly known, is found in just about every modern piece of technology in some form or another. While the idea of AI in everything can be jarring for some, its presence can also provide helpful assistance from menial to basic tasks.
Like other modern technology, the printing industry utilizes artificial intelligence in a handful of small but meaningful ways. Below are our top examples.
Like many complex machines, printers both big and small have a ton of moving parts working in tandem. With a modern and smart printer, when there are inefficiencies happening during a printing process, sensors built into the machine collect that data and use it in helpful ways to inform the user of upcoming maintenance, cleaning, low ink/toner, among other things.
It may seem like a no brainer, but the ability to print directly from your phone to a local device hasn’t always been as easy as it is now. Part of that has to do with the AI in both modern printers and phones working together to provide the necessary “handshake” for it all to happen smoothly and efficiently. Our Managed Print Services help with making sure your printer’s network is secure.
With the added ease of printing from a computer, laptop, tablet, or phone wirelessly also comes potential software threats and malware brought into a network from anonymous devices connecting to your printer. Luckily, with the assistance of AI alongside your IT team or services, anomalies or other malicious content can be monitored in real-time and addressed in a timely fashion.
Artificial Intelligence has been designed in such a way that we don’t typically think about it working in the background. As we move closer and closer to making our daily lives more efficient, AI allows us to not only get more done, but also highlight potential blind spots to the way we work.
