Technology develops at a speed faster than even the IT industry as a whole can keep up. Today there is more power in the pocket of an individual than they had back in the 90s. Artificial Intelligence was an intriguing concept that science fiction novels and movies liked dabbling with for several decades, but now researchers are convinced that AI is close to becoming the part of the mainstream’s lives, much like the internet.
In recent times, scientists have made major breakthroughs with higher levels of deep learning that imitate the working of real neurons with the use of neural networks. This new kind of deep learning, allows machines to process information in an extremely sophisticated way for themselves. On the other hand, Big Data is working as a catalyst in developing AI processes and this means a lot more integration of Artificial Intelligence driven technology in our day to day lives sooner than we expect. Even if at the moment, a lot of this technology is rudimentary, it is very soon going to take up our daily lives in an unavoidable way. Here are 5 ways by which AI can affect us in the near future:
- Cyborg Technology: One major limitation of human beings is – actually their very own bodies, and minds. Researchers believe that very soon, humans will be able to augment themselves with computers in order to enhance a lot of their own natural abilities. They might serve a practical purpose; help overcome a disability or used simply for convenience. For instance, an amputee can use this technology to move artificial limbs by just desiring to do so. This, in a big way can reduce the difficulties that amputees go through.
- Automated Transportation: Self-driving cars like Tesla are already available in the market even though they require monitoring of a seated driver. Of course these developments are exciting but not perfect, and will require development, fine tuning and mainstream acceptance. The US government has started categorizing the levels of automation. Other public transportations like buses and cars are more likely to get automated.
- Doing your dangerous job for you: Robots are already doing some seriously hazardous jobs including bomb diffusion. This bomb diffusion machine is not driven by AI but is more of a drone that needs human guidance and control. Other fields of work that are in the list are wielding,
- Friendship with Robots: What if we told you the popular 90’s show of Small World could be your world? Right now most robots are emotionless and it can feel strange to picture a robot relating to you emotionally. A Japanese company has seemed to crack it. Their ’Pepper’, a robot that went on sale in 2015 is programmed to feel emotions and understand the user. It can read emotions, develop its own feelings and build emotions -keeping its human friends happy!
- Fixing Climate Change: Experts cite how machines have so much more access to data than any human possibly can. With use of big data, AI could identify the weather problems and come up with a viable solution.
The world of Artificial Intelligence is sure exciting and lucky are the ones who get to work in the technology. Being a part of life changing technology can be noble and exciting at the same time.
