Where is Artificial Intelligence Leading Us To?

July 23, 2019 by Stefanini

Do you ever sit around and ponder what the “next big thing” in technology will be? It seems as though everything has been done before, but we all know that someone, somewhere is sitting in their creative lab, inventing something that will change our lives. This level of disruption only happens once in a while, but when it does, the world can feel it.

While none of us know for sure what’s to come in the tech world, it’s safe to say that there’s plenty more to be seen in artificial intelligence (AI), one of the most life-changing technologies.

But the scuttlebutt surrounding AI has instilled fear in some people that they will be replaced by robots, as unfathomable as it may seem. Some argue against this, claiming that AI will instead lead to future job creation, as machines can’t function on their own. This eliminates the fear of unemployment.

Everyone has different thoughts on where AI can take us in the future, but it’s hard to deny how AI has improved our lives. For instance, in the education sector, chatbots and 24-hour virtual assistants help students with tough homework assignments. In health care, robots automate routine tasks in medical clinics to ensure that doctors are giving the best care to patients.

Furthermore, AI takes a heavy load off people in the workplace. For example, our own AI platform Sophie improves the workplace, as she can assist with tasks, such as triggering workflow, auto escalation, presenting knowledge to users and much more. Sophie has the ability to understand the meaning of words and phrases and relate them to the real world. Furthermore, she learns at a faster pace and can be implemented in a shorter period of time than any other tool on the market. Sophie was designed for complex, high-demand environments and thinks using the symbolic process, which leads to a faster learning process, as well as better conversational skills and user comprehension. 

What to expect from AI in the future

If you think the world is too digital now, just wait until you see what’s coming ahead. A typical day will look like an episode of “The Jetsons,” as you’ll be flying a car instead of driving it. Furthermore, don’t expect much human interaction, as people will be communicating with and fully relying on robots as if the human race never existed. Moreover, some of your co-workers will be robots, and your kids’ after school tutor will be a virtual tutor.

AI will practically be your new best friend. In fact, AI will know you better than your best friend – reading your every thought, predicting your every move. When going to the doctor’s office or going to the grocery store, just remember to bring your face, because credit cards and IDs will become obsolete, thanks to facial recognition. And no time to take your child to daycare? No worries. Robots may become advanced enough to be able to look after your kids when you’re not home, saving you time and money on a babysitter.
