Artificial Intelligence (AI) is no longer just the ambitious projection of science fiction films attempting to depict the future.
It has already been ingrained into a number of sectors, and is proving to be proprietary in solving a number of major problems. From helping develop disease detection breath analysis technology to self-driving cars, AI has starting to realize some of the potential that dictated its development.
These are a few of the biggest problems that AI is helping solve.
Road safety and security
The loss of lives as a result of road accidents is still a major problem around the world. Human drivers are always going to engage in flawed driving, whether intentionally or as a result of factors beyond their control.
AI has been developed for use by the drone industry that could help shape motor vehicle automation. Proprietary sensors and cameras have allowed drone pilots to set a course and objectives, with the machine doing the rest of the work. This feature could be extrapolated to transportation, allowing cars to handle all the driving.
The potential for safety is immense, although certain ethical issues would still need to be addressed, such as the trolley problem.
Healthcare and medicine
The use of Artificial intelligence to detect patterns is an integral tool in the medical field. The potential for data analysis could help researchers specialize in different areas of focus in their studies for quicker and more accurate analyses, which will make an unbeatable tool in this regard.
It could, for instance, be used to find more links in drug trials to help improve their efficiency. Combined with nanotechnology, AI has already been used to develop sensors that seek to replicate sensation and function for replacement prosthetics.
With the help of AI and modern technology such as 3D printing, the potential for prosthetic replacement and even nanotechnology-based regenerative medicine could see an improvement in healthcare.
Machine learning can also affect how we learn. As the world moves to a more virtual front, there is no learning tool that offers better compatibility with the digital interface than AI.
Instead of the traditional inefficient way of learning, AI could help develop a new system of learning that is personalized to meet each person’s unique profile and incorporates modern elements and skills.
With AI, people will be able to learn more and access relevant information faster. It could even help address the inconsistency of learning around the world.
