In the future, personalized AI assistants will use the knowledge of our behavior to educate us about the processes and work. As we get older, they provide support and support when caregivers are not around. These assistants will not only list our calendars and answer questions, but also provide medical treatments, help us make difficult choices, and connect with the people we care about.
This is the vision of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC), an organization representing more than 220 North American academic departments, industrial research laboratories, and professional societies, formulated the draft of their 20-year roadmap for AI research in the US Month was published. Its organizers ̵
Eric Schmidt, former CEO of Google and Alphabet, and Helen Greiner, co-founder of iRobot, fully agree. Both shared their visions in a press event last month during the MIT celebration of their new College of Computing, which was partly designed to promote AI training.
[Y] or you have a [AI] Wizard, [and] This wizard will express itself in many different ways. [A] A child, you will have a teddy bear that will help you learn language and math, and what you have, and as an adult you will have another kind of assistant who will help you plan your day. "Said Schmidt. "As an older person, you have an assistant who will assist your company [and] with problems you have."
Greiner expects this at the same time as AI can do more tasks. Transcription from the virtual world (eg smart speakers and smartphones) to the physical world (driverless cars and extremely skilled robots) will accelerate.
Remember the time when people were wasting vacuuming their floors, "she said. "[But] We still do all these things – washing the windows, putting away the dishes – these are the same tasks. [What we need to] Vision is the arithmetic of the physical: a house that takes care of you, a car that drives you, and a personal transport that takes you where you want to go. So many aspects of life [our] are embedded in the physical, and we need to apply this calculation to the physical. I think that was the biggest [advances will come] of the next decade. "
There is no doubt about that: they are beautiful predictions. However, if industry does not address the issues that could jeopardize progress, it could lead to a much grimmer reality.
The third study in a series of studies by the American Automobile Association (AAA) found that these were nearly three quarters Consumers are suspicious of driving in self-driving cars, with most forecasts predicting that the technology will be at least a decade will be mature. In a recent Edelman survey among the US public and tech executives, approximately the same percentage of the two groups believe AI will lead to more isolation because "fewer people need to interact with others" and worries have to do that they become less. Creativity and freedom of thought.
AI will benefit even the highly qualified at the expense of the economically disenfranchised disproportionately. The World Economic Forum, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Gartner, and the McKinsey Global Institute predict that technologies like automated process automation (RPA) will make up to 75 million jobs obsolete by 2025, and the share of "low digital capabilities" from 40 percent to 30 percent Could lower percent in the next 10 years.
Given these extraordinary challenges, what steps should be taken to ensure AI in the future – the AI, which foresees Schmidt, Greiner, the CCC and other optimists – benefits the whole of humanity?
Respondents to the Edelman Study on Regulation and Transparency – over 50 percent state that the guidelines for developing AI should be imposed by a "public corporation" and that tech companies are required to show how AI improves both can life and economics. According to Katie Rae, who heads MIT's startup accelerator The Engine, education will play a fundamental role in shaping the next two decades in computer and AI research.
The CCC, on the other hand, suggests that national AI labs could help solve a problem, lacking the resources needed to create more advanced systems. Microsoft CTO Kevin Scott summed it up in a recent interview: "You can not just create a bunch of tech and be extremely disruptive and have no involvement … you have to create value in this world and that can not just be in the world Corporate value, "he told VentureBeat. "I believe that if you give people tools, the overwhelming majority of the uses they are used for are positive, and you want to encourage and protect them from the negative in a thoughtful way."
