  • “Everything we call real is made up of things that cannot be regarded as real” – Niels BohrFor many, the “virtual world” of AI and the “real world” in which we live seem to perpetually be at odds.
  • But, in reality, those two seemingly different worlds are not actually worlds apart — AI’s virtual world has real world applications.See also: 4 ways AI is enabling the IoT revolutionLet’s challenge this premise of separate worlds with an experiment.
  • The non-physical world where our mental activities occur is similar to the virtual world of AI.Don’t miss your chance to attend our IoT Revolution SymposiumThe moment we open our eyes after this exercise, it’s easy to look through them and hold onto the traditional Newtonian views that the foundation of our universe is defined by physical material reality.
  • That said, just like our own human consciousness, AI can rely on senses similar to humans in order to connect their thought processes to our physical world.IoT makes AI come to lifeThe Internet of Things (IoT) provides ready access to sensors that allow more meaningful sensory access to our physical world, thus enabling AI to “come to life.”
  • In many ways, these sensors can empower the AI with “superhuman” capabilities, like:Access to many more sensory inputs than we have as people, in many different places, simultaneously.Infrared “eyes” so that AI can “see” heat variances, as well as standard object detection, counting, and classification.Ultrasonic “hearing” that enable access to frequency ranges beyond the human spectrum.Accelerometers that capture haptic movements with much finer details than our own fingertips.

For many, the “virtual world” of AI and the “real world” in which we live seem to perpetually be at odds. With AI largely being academic or theoretical in nature for most of the past 60 years, it’s easy to see why many question the potential of it being truly useful in our “real world.” But, in reality, those two seemingly different worlds are not actually worlds apart — AI’s virtual world has real world applications.

4 challenges Artificial Intelligence must address

4 challenges Artificial Intelligence must address  #AI

  • Huge leaps in AI have accelerated this process dramatically and propagated it to other domains previously imagined to remain indefinitely in the monopoly of human intelligence

    From driving trucks to writing news and performing accounting tasks, AI algorithms are threatening middle class jobs like never before.

  • It’s also true that the AI revolution will create plenty of new data science, machine learning, engineering and IT job positions to develop and maintain the systems and software that will be running those AI algorithms.
  • Teaching new tech skills to people who are losing or might lose their jobs to AI in the future can complement the efforts.
  • Machine Learning, the popular branch of AI that is behind face recognition algorithms, product suggestions, advertising engines, and much more, depends on data to train and hone its algorithms.
  • Unless companies developing and using AI technology regulate their information collection and sharing practices and take necessary steps to anonymize and protect user data, they’ll end up causing harm than good to users.
