Do chatbots, robots, and digital assistants intrigue you?
What about automated vehicles and virtual assistants?
They’re all part of the world of artificial intelligence. AI is a field of computer science that focuses on the creation of a machine that can replicate human behavior.
Life without computers and technology is almost unimaginable in today’s world. People are so dependent on machines that they constantly strive towards improving them and making their own lives easier.
In the past several years, we could see a lot of talk surrounding artificial intelligence. These supercomputers keep getting better and better and are able to substitute humans in performing various tasks.
The team from TechJury has taken a deeper look into this subject and made a really cool infographic that you can check out at the bottom of this text.
The biggest improvement in AI, however, is that these pieces of software are now built to learn by themselves. The artificial intelligence machines of the future will be able to correct their mistakes, find solutions to unfamiliar tasks, and go through automatic updates without the need for human work.
AI supercomputers are already common in many industries, including transport, education, healthcare, sports, media, agriculture, cybersecurity, and more.
While artificially intelligent machines can steal jobs from people, they can also save a lot of lives. For example, self-driven AI cars and airplane autopilots decrease the chance of accidents. Surgical robots in medicine can perform difficult procedures instead of doctors.
A lot of countries have recognized the importance of AI and are investing billions. World economic superpowers like the USA, China, Russia, Japan, Germany, the UK, and others. Furthermore, one of the biggest companies worldwide Twitter has already started investing into big data and AI.
In 2016, the total AI software market worldwide was measured at $1.4 billion. This number is expected to rise to almost $60 billion by 2025. As a result, this technology can put about 38% of US jobs at risk.
While AI is the future, it is also very much in the present as well. Most of us are using smartphones that are often supported by some AI-driven personal assistance. This year alone, there will be around 4 billion devices that use some sort of personal assistants.
