Blog: 5 Trends in AI — planetstoryline
Here are five significant trends in artificial intelligence to look forward to affecting myriad industries on an international scale led by giant tech firms that are now investing huge sums in artificial intelligence research.
Last year, AI implementation rose significantly across so many platforms, tools, and applications around the world, affecting healthcare, education, and other industries as more and more people opt for AI-based and machine learning e-solutions. Then there’s the automotive industry with self-driving cars, the farming sector opting for smart robots to tackle sowing as well as crop spraying insecticide ; the list goes on.
As giants of the tech industry, including Google, Facebook and Amazon, are now investing billions in AI as well as machine learning research, let’s explore how 2019 on this front is unfolding.
AI Powered Chips
Major manufacturers of chips including Intel, Nvidia, AMD and ARM are aiming to produce AI-powered chips to accelerate the operation of applications running on AI. An AI application relies on processors because it requires considerable speed. When the processes involve facial recognition and object identification that require complex mathematical computations in parallel, it is quite difficult for the CPU systems to complement such applications. AI chip performance advances will be a great solution to this problem as they will be designed to complement NLP, speech recognition, computer vision, etc. applications.
IoT and AI
In the recent past, the Internet of Things has disrupted many industries in a good way, and to increase its useful impact in our lives, it merges with AI. In order to predict better steps in the future, industrial IoT is first in line to be integrated with AI for problem detection in machinery, early detection of issues, and situations analysis. In order to improve industrial operations, deep neural networks will play a key role. Similarly, autonomous driving will witness an enormous use of AI and solve everyday problems such as worldwide traffic congestion.
Automated Machine Learning
Automated machine learning, as it will revolutionize business analytics, will also be a known term in the coming months. Complex problems will be solved by the typical process of training models without manually training the machines. Analysts will be able to focus on core issues instead of getting stuck in the training process.
The Recognition of the Facial
While facial recognition had its challenges last year due to Facebook’s infringement of personal data where millions of people’s personal data were used without their consent to create political strategies, this is definitely on the increase. Facial recognition is an artificial intelligence application, and due to extensive research in the field, its readability and accuracy are greatly improved. This will help security agencies identify society’s rogue elements as well as help companies provide their customers with more personalized services.
It’s a big question that is being asked these days on every platform. Whether AI takes away people’s jobs. The answer may be “yes” as well as “no.” It is quite clear that in a number of industries worldwide, the use of AI will increase automation. For example, in its operations, Amazon has already begun to use robots as they work faster and more accurately. Processes will not involve so much human error with increased automation, and this will improve the services provided by so many different firms. More research, however, is needed by humans. So, AI’s rise definitely increases automation in our daily life processes, but this requires more researchers to provide solutions to the resulting issues that arise. Thus, while AI may eat on the low-skilled job market, demand for higher-skilled jobs (for AI design) will increase.
In summary, with its integration with IoT and machine learning, the use of AI continues to increase dramatically, and as the tech giants boost AI research efforts. With these 5 trends to look forward to, AI is poised to expand its reach in the world further and will greatly affect various industries and businesses on an international scale, while at the same time raising mankind to a whole new level of productivity.
