From self-driving cars to robots that can give medical diagnoses, artificial intelligence is rapidly reshaping life in the 21st Century.
Here’s how AI is already changing the game when it comes to conference calling
More than just the name of a creepy 2001 Sci-Fi film. artificial intelligence, or “AI”, has increasingly enabled machines to perform tasks that only humans were previously capable of. Recognizing imagery, interpreting data, and understanding human speech are among the long and growing list of things that can now be done by machines. So, as machine learning continues to progress, how will AI shape our everyday lives in years to come?
While even experts cannot be absolutely certain about what the future of AI will bring, we can look at some of the recent advancements in AI technology today to provide clues. In 2011, Apple introduced the world’s first modern digital virtual assistant, Siri, as a feature of the iPhone 4S. With virtual assistant technology that can complete tasks via voice or text prompts having been around for several years now, it seems only a matter of time until robots can do everything humans can and more!
Elon Musk on AI: don’t forget about the consequences
While many tech tycoons have been quick to embrace advancements in AI, billionaire entrepreneur and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk thinks there is reason to be cautious. Speaking at a symposium an MIT in October 2014, Musk expressed concern that advancements in AI could have unintended—and frightening—consequences for us humans. “Sometimes what will happen is a scientist will get so engrossed in their work that they don’t really realize the ramifications of what they’re doing” Musk cautioned during the World Government Summit in Dubai this past February.
