In our current day and age, there is artificial intelligence all around us. While a large number of people don’t realize it, this new technology has become integral to our modern-day lives. Some artificial intelligence is amazingly simple, like the tech that controls a Roomba or the tech that controls the temperature in your house.
Other kinds of artificial intelligence are massive systems that are performing hundreds to thousands of processes every day. Systems like deep learning algorithms on the internet or massive security systems in modern-day buildings. These artificial intelligence systems have started to really advance in the past few years, and are going to continue to do so into the foreseeable future. If someone were to just look at how advanced home security systems have gotten in the past few years alone, they would see that this kind of tech advances fast.
This advancement of tech can be great for the world, but everyone on it should still be careful with the chances of things going awry. One of the biggest points to proponents of artificial intelligence is how much it can help people with their daily lives. For example , self-driving cars will be able to help people that may not have the ability to drive. These cars can also help reduce the number of accidents due to distracted or influenced driving. Since the artificial intelligence doesn’t get distracted or even need rest, these vehicles can travel for as long as needed without the risk of people getting hurt. Creating a self-driving car requires implementing self-driving sensors (that are very precise in detecting and identifying the surroundings and moving objects) and self-driving software that is smart enough to operate and make decisions based on the information it gets from the car’s sensors. Thanks to artificial intelligence this software can handle steering control, motion planning and system supervision in a smart way.
Another important thing to note about the self-driving car is that it is no longer just a concept – the technology is being developed and slowly implemented and tested. The CEOs of the world’s most successful automotive companies, such as Elon Musk, Mary Barra, Mark Fields, express genuine interest in the technology and believe that’s what the future holds for us
Then there are things like advanced security systems run by artificial intelligence. These security systems are similar to artificial intelligence in vehicles in the way that they never need rest and never tire. These systems can also be used to see things that a normal person might miss, due to the fact that it can process so much information at once. Of course, this isn’t perfect, and the systems still do miss things, but they are getting better every day. With all of this advancement in such a short period of time, it should be obvious that the trend will continue.
More systems will become more and more advanced, whether it be something simple like systems that help take out the trash, or something as massive as a system that can build skyscrapers with only the use of robots. It’s impossible to say what exactly will be the next big thing in five years, the only thing that’s known for sure is that it will hopefully work to make the lives of people easier. Speaking of which, one of the most important things about the advancement of artificial intelligence is making sure that we as a people don’t take it too far, and always make sure what we’re doing is safe. As long as people and engineers are careful with these systems, they can be what brings us into the next chapter of human evolution.
