In the last decade, artificial intelligence has gone from a science-fiction dream to a critical part of our everyday lives. We use AI system to interact with our phones through Siri, Alexa, Google and cars; interpret and analyze their surroundings to intelligently drive themselves.
Amazon monitors our browsing habits and intelligently serves us products it thinks we’d like to buy even. Even Google decides what kind of search results to give us based on who it thinks we are.
Artificially Intelligent algorithms are here but this is only the beginning. Because in the future AI is gonna change everything. But do we want it to?
Well, what exactly is Artificial Intelligence may be a better question might be what exactly is intelligence. The simplest descriptor is collecting data about the world. And using that data to make predictions in the short and long term; that applies to both people and machines.
So when we are talking about AI in our lives, we’re talking about everything; from a computer being able to read a document like an OCR robot, to a robot performing complex surgery on it’s own.
Even to a massive database categorizing your personality based on what you’ve written and looked at online. Because the world of AI is incredibly large; let’s take a look at some of the most groundbreaking developments we expect to see in the very near future. And whether that’s a step forward or backward for society.
We may hope that AI will help advance our society it may just end up working to benefit the tech industry and only those who can afford to take advantage of cheaper smarter human replacements; may be to the detriment of society, but for now we just don’t know what the future of AI holds.
