With the integration of emerging technologies, these apps are being able to assist users efficiently. Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Internet of things, and Blockchain are all being merged into apps, increasing its’ scope and efficiency. Newer versions of most apps are being observed to have any or combinations of these technologies integrated for efficiency. 

Here are a list of apps that uses Artificial Intelligence specifically for user assistance:


Symptomate app evaluates symptoms of a patient to find their illness. This app is observed to be fast and free, and users can use it anonymously. It takes basic details of the patient and their symptoms. Then, Symptomate starts searching for causes of symptoms and presents user with follow-up questions. After evaluating the symptoms, user receives information regarding possible causes, options for next steps, and suggested lab tests.

Artificial Intelligence powers the app to predict the accurate causes of symptoms by analyzing thousands of patients cases. This intelligent technology uses doctors’ knowledge, scientific literature, and statistical data for representing error-free information.


Plantix app helps users understand plant illnesses and respective cures. All that’s needed to use the app is a smartphone with internet and a built-in camera. Within seconds of capturing an image of the sick plant, the app provides information on cause and treatment tips.

Plantix app uses artificial intelligence (AI) to understand the patterns of plant disease, pests, and deficiency of leaves. This smart app helps save time as cures can be administered by user post its quick diagnosis of the plant illness. Plantix can be useful for farming, gardening or even for plant enthusiasts.
