Artificial Intelligence Slowly Getting Real

While the traditional belief is that AI will provide a substitute to human work, my prediction is that there will be an increasing range of applications where AI augments human work instead of replacing it.

AI capabilities will be increasingly utilized in a healthcare setting to enable better decisions by clinicians and significantly improve preventive medicine for patients.

You will see a focus on delivering successful business applications. Many leading companies have started dabbling in AI and business leaders will want to start seeing dividends from these investments.

Major brands will start building AI-powered interactions to increase their sales with a conversational experience.

Rather than pursuing a “blank slate” AI solution requiring a knowledge base and training to understand a business environment, we’re seeing investment in pre-loaded, industry-specific AI products with relevant knowledge.

It seems apparent that Artificial Intelligence will put a focus on personalized nanomedicine such that we can always have real-time, relevant health metrics bundled with strategies for improvement.

AI will be given more latitude to take initiatives by itself to provide suggestions for improving business outcomes and efficiency.

The most important change I see coming is the achievement of artificial neural systems that emulate human sentience, allowing them the motivation and free will to solve extremely complex problems.

I’m beta testing an AI assistant software; many useful applications, but still a lot of “handholding”. AI is far from communicating across multiple mediums and adapting without active human guidance.

Exciting times are ahead now that Microsoft made the brains behind Cortana AI’s CNTK software open sourced. Opening it up to the public will drive innovations at a much faster pace.

Consumer interaction with everyday products will be redefined completely through a proliferation of digital assistants across physical devices, apps and messaging channels and “smart” devices with anticipatory capabilities.

AI will improve efficiency and safety on the roads with self-driven cars. It won’t be adopted by the masses yet but it will slowly get there.

AI will shift how people hire talent. Machines have the ability to find robust, high-quality connections between two sides of the proverbial business table, which pays off in effectiveness and efficiency in the end.

With Social media investing heavily in ‘AI and ‘deep science’, it will become far more personalized and targeted, as a result mass marketing would be a thing of past.

Honestly, you’re not going to see much happen with AI in the next few quarters, tech moves fast, but not that fast, and we’re on the cusp of AI now.

The smartest AI developed today is still as smart as young puppies. That said, we will start to see more complex work automation that wasn’t possible before.

We’ll see the rise of specialized AI over general AI tools, especially in the legal and medical domains. Also, many of today’s “hot” AI companies will die or get acquired.

The next generation of Artificial Intelligence is to truly mimic human thinking – using neural networks to make decisions in real time, with contextual adjustments, with limited data sets and provide the “why” for those choices.

Over the next couple of quarters, AI will be integrated with processed Big Data. It’ll be smarter and more informed to make better signals/ decisions in more uncertain and complex environment.

The next explosion in AI will be in the humanities, where AI partners with artists to help them become more expressive and creatively successful.

There’s more to be done around using AI techniques to improve the capabilities of human analysts for automating simpler tasks, and providing support for the more complex parts of threat analysis.

The biggest breakthrough will not be technical, but in business logic: using AI to augment humans – making them more productive instead of replacing them, thus making human-powered businesses scalable.

Artificial Intelligence will define the future of work. In 2016, the pace at which enterprises more widely adopt AI to replace manual, repetitive tasks will rapidly increase.

AI will give business a competitive edge over traditional manual processing technologies. Results are available in minutes instead of weeks or months.

  1. The capability to perform various tasks went on growing exponentially,of computers and machines ever since their inventions.
    Artificial Intelligence is termed as creating the computers or machines as intelligent as human beings.
    This technology is increasingly prevalent in our everyday lives. It has uses in a variety of industries from gaming, journalism/media, to finance, as well as in the state-of-the-art research fields from robotics, medical diagnosis, and quantum science.
    A major thrust of AI is in the development of computer functions associated with human intelligence, such as reasoning, learning, and problem solving.
    Because AI has the potential to become more intelligent than any human, we have no surefire way of predicting how it will behave.
    We can’t use past technological developments as much of a basis because we’ve never created anything that has the ability to, wittingly or unwittingly, outsmart us.

  2. Artificial Intelligence has been the real reason why the growth in technology has taken place and also why has it taken place at a much faster rate.Artificial intelligence has been applied in almost every field now and every simple utility gadget or equipment that we use in our everyday lives.A washing machine or a Refrigerator has applied artificial intelligence in them to enhance better performance.A.I will help in improving everyone’s lives as well as help in making a human being more advanced than what they were before.Machines have been developed to find out the capabilities of a human being,human beings compete with machines to find out their abilities and improve them.So its true that its not going to replace human beings but help in making humans better.Not only that its also going to make menial jobs disappear from the hands of a human and make it more assembly lined.Tough jobs which are very risky for human beings to do can be replaced by machines like cleaning up sewers and many other jobs of that sort which risks human life.Every field around us is going to benefit from the inclusion of A.I in it.Artists can make new forms of art by using many designing applications created using A.I,Musicians can use better equipment to make new forms of music with the help of A.I.Businesses have evolved by the application of A.I as they are equipped with real time applications which have used A.I,the collaboration of analytics with A.I has made predictability of future events possible by standing in the present. A.I has single-handedly made automation possible in every field.Google search is automated,e-commerce is equipped and developed and that’s all because of A.I.It is still in the beginning phase but it shows great potential for it to develop into a necessity for survival.

  3. The developments in the field of AI are not new and have been going through crests and troughs since mid 20th century. But unlike other times in the history we are closer to the achieving the results and impacts that we have always aspired for from AI. ROSS is the legal bot built on IBM’s Watson computer, reads through the law, gathers evidence, draws inferences and returns with a ‘highly relevant’, evidence-based answer. Similarly in the semi trucks launched recently that runs on autopilot makes the job of the driver easy and reduces the changes of accident. I very strongly believe that AI rather will make humans more efficient and take the civilization to newer heights by significantly making the tedious jobs more interesting and efficient like mentioned in the above examples.

  4. The AI we use today is mostly based on Machine learning (considered a subset of AI). It simply means creating machines and systems smart enough to perform their tasks autonomously without human intervention with the help of programming. A few months back AI demonstrated its might and shocked the world when Google’s AI program called ALphaGo defeated the world Go champion. Go is considered to be very complex than chess and has very large number of possibilities so large that it is even more than the total number of atoms in the visible universe. The result of the match was an amazing 4-1 victory for the AI. This makes it clear what we are looking at and it shouldn’t be a surprise when some of the Hollywood sci-fi movies turn into reality.
    ML sets the path for AI by optimizing metrics needed for a particular task. We see Google and Tesla working on automated cars. Here the task is of driving and it is optimized by ML techniques by scanning the surroundings of the car and taking the right decisions on the right time. These decisions are taken by considering the past records and data which was collected by sampling the surroundings into suitable parameters and the decision taken at that time. Here the output decision taken was defined and such a type of ML is called as supervised learning. It would interesting to note that most of the AI stuff being researched is based on supervised learning.
    AI will also boost the IoT technologies. We have seen siri, google now and cortana. These personal assistants based on ML and AI will be the driving force IoT. We would need sensors to record data and with limited number of gadgets a parson would like to keep with themselves everytime, these personal assistants will record and track most of the human activity. To see what type of data can contribute to making these assistants smarter, it would be interesting to visit here https://myactivity.google.com/ .
    Currently we are just looking at the tip of the AI mountain but there’s a LOT more below it. The future of these technologies is clear and we can just let our imaginations fly and wonder what can be expected in the near future.

  5. Smartphones are a great example of the application of artificial intelligence. In utilities like predicting what a user is going to type and correcting human errors in spelling, machine intelligence is at work. Applications like Siri that act as personal assistants, GPS and Maps applications that give users the best or the shortest routes to take as well as the traffic and time estimates to reach there, use artificial intelligence. Applications on phones or computers that predict user actions and also make recommendations that suit user choice, are applications of AI. Thus, we see that artificial intelligence has made daily life a lot easier.

  6. AI has a long way to go to get real and will not replace but augment humans enabling them to use it in much better way instead of just taking good decisions.

  7. Artificial Intelligence surely getting real in present scenario and will flourish more with emerging tech and their uses cases.One of the use case on which many venture are focusing right now is Digital Assistant ,It is a game-changing digital customer interaction solution that drives superior customer service at a radically lower operational cost for engaging customer and building trust for brand .it learn from e,g cortana and siri are very famous digital assistant here is one more example of startup using AI for customer engagement https://www.tripoto.com/travel-assistant which interact with customer and suggest them trips.
