We take a wild guess at what the Future of AI could be like
Let’s face it Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming more complicated and advanced as each new day dawns. With all this advancement and the so called “gold rush” within the AI space we may start seeing technology appear in the near future that is quite difficult to imagine today. Sure we have AI Generative art and movies but think outside the box.
Picture this, fully autonomous vehicles that can pick up clients and take them to their destinations. Virtual assistants that can cater for all of the users needs and even be personalized based on the clients behaviours. Or how about a Virtual doctor that can prescribe medication based on the clients symptoms, all this could be done through wearable tech. Here at So Artificial we are in no question that AI is going to transform our day to day lives in the future.
As the AI field continues to grow and change, we can except to see more innovative programs and applications that use AI on a more advanced level. We see AI like the innovation of the internet, the way it has grown and adapted to our needs over the short amount of time has been insane. This is the direction we expect AI to go.
But we need to be concerned about potential problems with introducing this new kind of technology. As AI is developed and deployed fail safes need to be put up in order to ensure it performs in a responsible and ethical manner. We share our opinion on the future of AI in this article.
Autonomous cars and drones
Sure, drones already exist and to some extent we have seen some use of Autonomous cars. These are classed as strong AI-powered technologies that do have the potential to change the transportation system. Autonomous vehicles work by using a range of sensors and machine learning algorithms in an aim to help them navigate road and airspace. They are capable of detecting obstacles and making decisions based on real-time live data through on board cameras.
Autonomous vehicles were created with the idea to operate with high precision and efficiency. Thus this should reduce the risk of accidents and generally improve safety. However is has not been without it’s hiccups along the way into mass adoption. A recent report showed around 400 accidents over an 11 month period where AI was involved, so it does bring in a lot of concerns of how AI is implemented into our vehicles.
If we manage to perfect this technology and ensure it works efficiently and safely 100% of the time we could see it mass adopted. It could help reduce traffic, improve access to people with disabilities and be more efficient with delivery and logistics.
The deployment of autonomous cars and drones does raises some important ethical and legal questions around liability, privacy, and security. These questions should be addressed in order to ensure that these technologies are implemented safely and responsibly.
Advanced Chatbots and Virtual Assistants
You might have heard of the well known Chat bot chatGPT and may think that’s as far as AI can go. Well there is more to come yet and with the work being put into Advanced Chatbots and virtual assistants we might see larger leaps in AI technologies in the coming months.
Imagine a personalised virtual assistant that caters for your every needs and being able to carry out complex tasks like, scheduling appointments, making purchases, and answering customer queries. This would be both beneficial for home and business use.
The way these systems work is by Natural language processing (NLP) algorithms and machine learning models to respond to a users requests in a real time, without the need for human interaction.
In the future we will see chatbots implemented on a wide scale within business. The aim would be to help improve customer interaction, where some companies are failing miserably. It will also be used to deal with any repetitive tasks. This would help aid in freeing up human resources so they can focus more on complex tasks.
There has been a lot of concerns on data privacy and security with these chatbots. Not to mention that fact is having a serious impact on job displacement. We are already seeing the way Europe is reacting to the use of chatbots that are unregulated.
Personalized healthcare solutions
Personalized healthcare solutions based on AI-powered analysis of individual medical data and genetic profiles have the potential to revolutionize the way we approach healthcare.
The way these AI systems work is by using machine learning algorithms and data sets. They analyse large amounts of data from health records, genome sequencing and even wearable devices. They then use this information to identify a set of patters or symptoms that in turn can be used to create a personal treatment plan for patients.
Picture this, you have just woken up feel a little bit on the rough side. So you wear your hospital tech gear and it scans your vitals, it then compares this data to other people in the area that might be having similar issues. Then this AI system gives you a very well educated assumption of what you may be suffering from. Then you get a print out or even a message on what action to take next, weather it be visit a doctor or try some home remedies.
This new technology could also help those with specific needs and medical conditions, by providing a tailor made health plan. This should help improve the patients over all health and reduce any risks to their health.
Some of the concerns over using AI to help with our general health are:
- Security: If there is a glitch in the system, or a bad actor it could lead to countless illnesses or even death of patients.
- Data Privacy: Large database filled with Millions of patients details could be hacked or exploited.
- Biases and Inaccuracies: The algorithm needs to be up to date with all recent research and be aware of any symptoms or illnesses that are more predominate in certain ethnicities.
It is very important that no matter what the out come when it comes to using AI in the health care industry, that we focus on maximizing the benefits while minimizing the risks. If one day AI evolves into AGI we might feel more safe in it’s decisions.
If we had truly intelligent robots, the future of AI could be both a scary and advanced world we could one day live in.
We could dream of a world where Intelligent robots are designed to perform a wide range of tasks. Jobs that humans might not want to do like mass manufacturing, some forms of healthcare and even education. They could work alongside humans, performing tasks that are too dangerous or difficult for humans, or taking on jobs that require high levels of precision and consistency.
In the home, intelligent robots could perform household chores, care for the elderly and disabled, and even provide companionship. We know how lonely these homes are becoming, so what better way to find a solution to one of the many problems AI can solve..
In the workplace these robots could help to enhance productivity and efficiency, reducing the need for human labour in some industries. Think of repetitive, laborious tasks that might harm workers.
But, one of the main concerns when creating intelligent robots is that they might cause a lot of social/ethical issues in the early inception days. Transparency is key and regulation needs to take place, we need to know who is programming these robots and how they come to the decisions they make. It is quite important that the introduction of intelligent robots does not have on employment rates or income of current workers.
This is just a taster of some of the potential possibilities that AI can achieve over the next decade. We expect to see a lot of Augmented reality and virtual reality too, so users can benefit from this new technology from the comforts of their own home.
We personally believe that AI will benefit our society, but only if it is regulated and insurance is given that this new technology will be used in an ethical and safe manor.
