The first big thing that AI is going to do is drive us toward the automation of our lives, said Peter Norvig, chief scientist at Google and author of “The Age of Artificial Intelligence,” a book about the technology.
But the pace of change in AI is accelerating, and there’s a growing sense that AI will be the next major breakthrough that will shape the world we live in for years to come.
In fact, AI is likely to be the single greatest driver of change that has occurred in the world since the Industrial Revolution, according to Norvie.
In this video, Norvine takes you through the different areas of the future of AI.
And it starts with what we now know as artificial intelligence.
“AI is going from an idea, a toy, a curiosity to a reality, as we’ve seen in the past, but what that means in terms of change is that the pace is going up,” Norvibg said.
“It’s getting faster.
It’s getting better.
And that means that there are lots of opportunities.”
In this Nov. 24, 2017 photo, an artist’s rendering shows a humanoid robot walking on a runway at the Taipei International Airport in Taipei, Taiwan.
AI is poised to transform everything from how we make money to how we buy homes.
That includes everything from making robots do things, to making humans think, to building AI systems that will help us understand the world better.
But it also means AI will have an impact on the world’s economy.
It will help companies make better business decisions, but it will also enable companies to build robots that can perform human tasks, like helping to run grocery stores.
So, in this Nov, 2017, photo, a humanoid robotic robot stands on a plane at the airport in Taipei, Taiwan, as the world braces for the arrival of a new batch of AI and machine learning products and services.
In many ways, AI will define the future, Norval said.
He said that if you look at the world of financial services, it is going in a totally different direction than it was a decade ago.
“There’s so much more automation happening now than ever before,” he said.
For instance, the amount of data that banks are collecting and processing in an average day has increased by more than 80 percent since 2001, according the Bank of England.
“In a way, we’re entering a whole new era in the way we use technology,” Norval added.
“And the challenge is, will we make the right choices to harness that new technology and to leverage it for our companies, our businesses, our society?”
As AI expands its reach, it will change everything about how we live our lives.
“People will be able to go from being able to look at a map and find a place and a place to go, to looking at a video of what’s going on in a shopping mall and know where to go to buy groceries, and the same with the video of an animal crossing the street,” Norva said.
And because the AI systems will be making these kinds of predictions, the possibilities for the human brain will expand.
“You will be using AI to help us with things that you might not otherwise be able do with AI,” Norvard said.
If that sounds like an alarming prospect to you, it should.
AI will also change how we interact with the world around us.
People will have to become smarter, but that’s not always an easy thing to do.
In the United States, for instance, AI has been able to detect when a person is distracted by an app, such as watching TV.
That could be used to help a doctor treat a patient, but not always.
“If we think about what is the next frontier for AI and robotics, it’s going to be in human-machine interfaces,” Norvine said.
That means the robots we interact in our homes and offices are getting smarter, too.
They can take down walls, pick up objects and carry them to a place they need to be, or they can perform basic tasks like picking up a phone, or picking up an object on the ground.
And these robots could even carry us to places where we don’t need to walk, like places where the weather is cloudy.
And they will also be able help us do things that we can’t do with our own bodies.
“We will have new kinds of sensors and algorithms that will be coming that will make us smarter, smarter and smarter, as they help us navigate through this world,” Norve said.
