The popularity and usefulness of Artificial Intelligence are skyrocketing with each passing day. Every day we see the continued development of new technologies, new applications, and greater investment in AI and Machine Learning. It is not an exaggeration to state that no major technology exists today without AI being built into the heart of it. Nowadays, AI can be used in various sectors ranging from business, medicine, to engineering. In that sense, the use of AI has become ubiquitous in today’s world. However, the use of AI is more likely to increase in the future with its improvement. Now, let’s have a look at how Artificial Intelligence, in the future, will change our world.
What is Artificial Intelligence?
Artificial Intelligence is a branch of computer science that holds a tendency to cause a machine to act, think, decide and work as a human. The main aim of Artificial Intelligence is to allow machines to mimic human cognition with a focus on complex problem-solving. Due to its increasing popularity, it is all set out to create a new revolution in the world by making intelligent machines. Similarly, a few advantages of using AI are high accuracy, high speed, high reliability, and its usefulness in risky areas.
“[AI] is going to change the world more than anything in the history of mankind. More than electricity.” — AI oracle and venture capitalist Dr. Kai-Fu Lee, 2018
1. Revolution in Workforce: The New Workforce
With the rapid change in Artificial Intelligence, the nature of work and labor is also changing. In the future, AI can be utilized in our favor to do burdensome and difficult tasks like heavy lifting. In the same way, hazardous works and working in dangerous situations can be done through AI-enabled robots. Technologies like Artificial Intelligence is supposed to make our life easier and increase our productivity. This could be a reality after the rise in the use of AI. As a result, the evolution in the nature of work and the workforce will become inevitable for better or worse.
2. Rise in Autonomous Operations
One thing that strikes in everyone’s mind while talking about AI is that it is able to operate autonomously without any outside help. We are already hearing about various companies like Tesla making their own autonomous vehicles. This technology will rapidly improve soon and every vehicle will be autonomous in the future. The autonomous world does not just include autonomous vehicles. Along with the vehicles, various heavy machinery and household equipment may also become autonomous. The combination of computer vision, machine learning, natural language processing, predictive analytics, and the world of intelligent devices means that we will be drowned in autonomous systems of different kinds in the future.
3. Pervasive Knowledge
Even today, our phones and computer devices know everything about us. From the place we live to our favorite restaurant, our mobile devices know it all. But, this is likely to get more pervasive in the near future. Imagine having an AI-enabled device that hears every word you speak and sees everything you do. Although it sounds scary, this is being more and more real with the development of Machine Learning. We say we do not want to share our information but we freely share our location 24/7 on our mobile devices. In the same way, people may soon give up their information in exchange for convenience.
4. Enhancement in Human Experience and Lives
Artificial Intelligence in the future will be used to enhance human lives and experience. Since the dawn of Human Civilization, the only thing we have cared about is improving our daily lives through the use of various means. We have reached here in this conquest of enhancing human lives. Just similar to it, we will be using AI and its technologies to improve our standards of living. We will be relying on AI for enhancing our daily interactions with each other, expanding our creativity, and giving us ways to express ourselves. AI will revolutionize everything from Medicine to Entertainment and will ultimately increase the quality of our life.
