Artificial Intelligence(AI) has been evolving today at a faster pace than ever before.
But that isn’t what I’m here to talk about.
I have something special for you, let me talk about few amazing future technology ideas with AI.
Before we talk about the future possibilities let’s look back and see how did the work on AI start.
History Of Artificial Intelligence(AI)
The history of Artificial Intelligence (AI) began in antiquity, with myths, stories, and rumors of artificial beings endowed with intelligence or consciousness by master craftsmen.
The seeds of modern AI were planted by classical philosophers who attempted to describe the process of human thinking as the mechanical manipulation of symbols.
This work culminated in the invention of the programmable digital computer in the 1940s, the machine based on the abstract essence of mathematical reasoning.
How far have we reached on the road of AI
Although there are a ton of recent advancements in the field of AI, here are few developments from last 2 decades which had helped AI outshine.
The major advancements in AI happened when World’s first fully autonomous humanoid robot, Sophia was introduced by Hanson Robotics in 2017.
So, now we know where we are standing let’s see how exciting will be the future of AI.
10 Amazing Future technologies with AI
So, here are few amazing advancements in AI that will be a reality in near future.
1. Recognize Emotions in human’s face
Microsoft, the tech giant has been working hard to develop an AI which can detect the emotions in your face.
The company’s putting its money where your mouth is and is letting anyone upload their face to its emotion-detecting API.
Part of Project Oxford, it uses “world-class machine learning” to interpret how people are feeling.
The project caused offense earlier this year by trying to work out how old people were, with Microsoft warning that its experimental platform was “not always accurate”.
For the above picture, Microsoft’s AI produced results which were almost correct. But for now, AI couldn’t recognize the feelings if a person had worn a sunglass.
2. Merging human brain with a computer
Elon Musk’s latest startup is working on bringing brain-computer interface than ever before.
The ultimate aim of Elon Musk’s latest company is to blur the lines between organic,…
..flesh-and-blood human brain and artificial intelligence, and make the two entities talk to each other and interact like never before.
According to people familiar with the matter,…
…Elon Musk’s Neuralink will work on developing a revolutionary “neural lace” framework which would help the human brain interact directly, with computers and machines,…
..without the need for any other physical device.
The best part of this brain-computer interface is they can cure a ton of diseases which aren’t curable today.
Worst part: we won’t be able to experience this technology until the end of 2030.
3. IoT will become a vital part of our daily life
The future with IoT will be so exciting to talk about.
Smart home hubs, thermostats, lighting systems and even coffee makers all collect data on your habits and patterns of usage.
Voice-controlled devices actually record what you say to them and then store those recordings in the cloud. All of this data is collected to help facilitate what is called machine learning.
Studies say that by 2020, it is estimated that there will be up to 21 billion connected devices.
With these huge number of connected devices, security will pose a serious question. According to Gartner, threats extend well beyond denial of sleep attacks:
Those are attacks using the malicious code, propagated through the Internet of Things, aimed at draining the batteries of your devices by keeping them awake.
4. AI helps find missing children with ease
Every year there will be at least few hundred thousand(465,676 in last year) cases in the US where children go missing.
FBI had to spend a lot of time working on this missing cases.
Now the question is: Can we use Artificial intelligence to make it easy to break down those huge missing cases?
Yes we can, says Intel.
Intel’s is working on developing an AI which will help find the missing ones.
Here’s how Intel uses advanced technology to help find missing and exploited children.
- Intel integrated few hundreds of different databases and data sources using its new enterprise data strategy.
- Intel’s AI takes the data from the report like IP addresses, phone numbers, text and determine the physical location of the suspect using complex algorithms.
- Intel also trains it’s AI by using few hundreds of thousands of past cases which have already been analyzed.
But Intel’s AI isn’t perfect, it can’t deliver 100% precision. So, we can expect Intel’s AI to work with greater precision in near future.
5. Processors which will learn on its own
Intel is reportedly working on new generation chips called Nervana chips.
These chips are inspired by the human brain, which will help computers make decisions based on patterns and associations.
Intel recently announced their first-of-its-kind self-learning neuromorphic test chip, which uses data to learn and make inferences,…
…gets smarter over time and does not need to be trained in the traditional way.
The potential benefits from self-learning chips are limitless as these types of devices can learn to perform the most complex cognitive tasks,
such as interpreting critical cardiac rhythms, detecting anomalies to prevent cyberhacking and composing music.
Intel says that its first batch of Nervana chips will be late by early 2018 and is expected to become one among great future technology devices.
6. Machines will understand the meanings of our words
Machines are better than ever at working with text and language.
But still, machines can’t understand the meaning of meaning of the words as humans do. Some leading Artificial intelligence research teams…
…are trying to figure out how to clamber over it.
Facebook researchers are trying to teach software to understand reality by watching a video, for example.
Others are working on mimicking what we can do with that knowledge about the world. Google has been tinkering with software that tries to learn metaphors.
If everything happens fine we can expect the software which can understand the meaning of our words and the ideas we share with them.
7. Home and Service Robots will prevail
Over the next fifteen years, advances in AI and mechanical technologies will result in a safer and more reliable line of home-dwelling robots.
Potential applications include package delivery, cleaning, and security.
With access to cloud-based networks, they might spend days entertaining us. Cooperative AI learning from cloud-shared data will enhance machine learning.
For example, NASA is developing a cloud-based AI, called AUDREY, a self-learning AI designed to help emergency service providers.
We’ve already welcomed robots into our homes in the form of Roombas: 16 million of them are helping us keep our floors clean.
In the future, advances in technology may allow us to more fully interact with robot companions.
8. Pills will start detecting the diseases using AI
We all know Google has access to our emails, search history and more.
But what if Google had access to the inside of your body, and help you detect the disease before it had reached the peak point.
Google is developing a pill that could detect cancer and other diseases earlier than ever before, as an attempt to eliminate unnecessary deaths due to late diagnoses.
The pill is still in the experimental stage,…
…but essentially it would be packed with little magnetic particles that could travel through a person’s bloodstream and identify malignant cells.
The information would then be sent to a sensor on a wearable device, ideally finding cancer sooner than what typical cancer screenings currently do.
Though promising, this tech might not hit the market anytime within next 5 years and is listed on top of future technology gadgets.
9. AI will extend the average lifespan of humans
The Google-backed life-extension company named Calico, announced recently that it was partnering with Chicago-based pharmaceutical giant AbbVie to…
…develop and bring to market new drugs targeting diseases associated with old age.
Led by former Genentech CEO and current Apple Chairman, Arthur D. Levinson, Calico has big plans in health care — at least over the long term.
From what we’ve heard so far,…
…the new project will leverage Google’s massive cloud and data centers to help facilitate research on disease and aging by mining its trove of data for insight into their origins.
In an interview with TIME Magazine, Google CEO Larry Page implied that dramatically extending human life is one of Calico’s main goals.
But we can’t expect this technology anytime soon, at least we need to wait for half a decade more.
10. Artificial intelligence and robotics will redefine Healthcare
AI and robots that support, diagnose and treat people are already in homes, workplaces and clinical environments all over the world.
And how we embrace Artificial intelligence and Robotics to complement and enhance current healthcare services…
…over the next 10 years will define our ability to deliver a more responsive health service with improved health outcomes,…
…while at the same time enabling people to take more control over their day-to-day health needs.
The FDA recently gave their seal of approval for an AI-powered medical imaging platform that helps doctors analyze and diagnose heart anomalies.
But how efficient is AI compared to humans, really?
Well, aside from the obvious fact that software programs don’t get bored or distracted or have to check Facebook every twenty minutes, AI is exponentially better than us at analyzing data.
Although the inclusion of AI-powered robots in healthcare isn’t fully implemented yet, we can expect AI bots replacing human doctors in future.
Although I have tried listing few future advancements with AI there are a ton of future technology predictions that I haven’t talked about,…
… and that’s because I wanted to deliver few but best ideas.
