Where AI is headed in 2018?
Stephen Hawking said, “The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race….It would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded.”
Ever since its genesis, there have been conflicting views and concerns on the potential enhancement or doom that it can cause to human civilization. While some experts believe that this technology will advance and augment our intelligence, some like Bill Gates have expressed concerns on how a machine’s intelligence becomes strong enough to be a concern.
AI to fully integrate in human lives
If 2017 was the year where the warnings from Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking about the potential evil from AI clashed with predictions from Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates on its potential good, 2018 will be the year when the debate shifts to its practical utility.
We would get to see more robots that could master complex tasks like ‘walking around a room and over objects’. 2018 will see “Vast applications on smartphones will run deep neural networks to enable AI,” as said by Robinson Piramuthu, chief scientist for computer vision, eBay. Full Story
The real AI jobs issue – plus 7 more trends you shouldn’t ignore
Artificial intelligence (AI) is remarkably complex and advancing quickly. It’s impossible for anyone to give a precise vision of how the next several years will unfold.
But it is possible to make specific predictions about AI trends for the next year, then share key implications for business, government, and society. Many of these nascent trends are already underway.
We’ve made eight such predictions—based on insights from AI visionaries, as well as what PwC leaders see as they advise clients around the world who are putting AI to work in their own organizations. Full Story
Three AI And Machine Learning Predictions For 2019
Machine learning and artificial intelligence have been the talk of the town for the past few years—and the hype isn’t slowing down anytime soon. I believe 2019 is going to be the year for businesses who have waited to finally jump on board to witness a goldmine of advancements for their industry. What could we potentially see next year? New and innovative uses for machine learning? Further evolution of human and machine interaction? The rise of AI assistants? Let’s dig deeper into AI and machine learning predictions for the coming months.
New Uses for Machine Learning Across Multiple Industries
When dealing with a technology as advanced as machine learning, there simply isn’t an industry that would not benefit. I mean how could a business not take advantage of a technology that would make them more successful? In the next year, there will be multiple new uses for machine learning in all of these industries available for the taking and I’m not just talking about in marketing and sales.
The U.S. Army is currently using machine learning to predict when combat vehicles need repair. Think about it, there are millions of pieces of equipment that our Army uses each and every day. To keep track of the data involved, they are recruiting the help of an AI assistant. For the first implementation, a few dozen armored infantry transports will receive sensors inside of the vehicles’ engines. These sensors will record temperature and RPM and will transmit it to the software. Machine learning capabilities will look for patterns in the data that match engine failures in similar vehicles.
