As we all know nowadays the technologies which are based on AI are being proliferated in a very fast way and they have become an integral part of today’s technology. To be more specific, we can find artificial intelligence in almost any discipline. Let’s examine what AI has still to offer in the foreseeable future.
First, it would be wise to examine the future of the hallmark of AI, the robots. Can we really have so intelligent robots and machines as we see them in plenty of movies in the near future? The answer is more complicated than it seems. Of course, someone could argue that currently there is a considerable number of machines like robots which are in a partial operation. For example, Spot, the robot of Boston Dynamics which is one of the most famous robots right now.
On the other side of the coin, it is worth mentioning that despite this significant progress in the field of robotics everyone can notice that we are too far from machines of full intelligence and before that we must think if there is an actual necessity for it. This is a completely different conversation and this article is not written for that. Of course AI is not exclusively about robotics. As it was mentioned previously AI possesses a very important role even in our daily lives. Smartphones, video games, technology devices are all based on AI techniques.
At this point, it is of utmost importance to examine what AI has to offer in the near, and not only, future. One aspect is that of medicine. Currently, plenty of AI machines are being developed in order to serve this intention. Moreover, we can say that remote surgery is about to flourish within the upcoming years. In this way the expectancy of life will grow dramatically. In addition, we should not forget the benefits AI can bring in the discipline of education since more new tools will be available resulting in a more constructive and interactive way of teaching. On top of that, no one would deny that AI systems have brought a revolution in the field of work and especially in the field of economy. It is more than obvious that the advent of machines based on AI techniques resulted in the acceleration of production and by extension in the growth of global economy which led to the creation of new jobs. Inevitably here comes the discussion about the replacement of humans by the machines. This point requires the most attention by everyone. It would be beneficial for everyone if AI machines replace humans and make the production faster but simultaneously they contribute to the creation of new jobs with work conditions of high quality.
In conclusion, it is safe to say that Artificial Intelligence is here to stay and no one can change that. With right handling this aspect of technology can change our lives forever.
