Guide to the Latest Developments in Artificial Intelligence

Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence has cited that China is leading in the race of publishing AI research papers, both high-impact, and beginner level papers. It is estimated from the data collected that China is likely to publish more top papers by 2020 as compared to the US.

The advent of the intelligent technologies will create a fission of information related to it. We have created a few points to sum up highlights from the latest developments in the field of Artificial Intelligence.

  • Business executives are embracing the AI tech regardless of concerns and confusions.
  • According to research by Celonis on the application of AI by businesses, it has been deciphered that 73% of senior executives want to increase investment in  machine learning and automation technology, while the rest 33% plan to get an insight into the understanding of their business functioning so that they could pick the technologies suitable for their businesses.
  • Further to this, about 90% of IT leaders profess that AI/ML use will increase in the future and almost 41% pick up technologies that are AI-powered. The top concerns with regards to using AI tech are Data security, AI and MI implementation and driving innovation/incorporating new tech.
  • Businesses across the technology spectrum are speculating whether machines will take over most of the jobs performed by humans and also ask for regulation of the number of jobs businesses can replace with automatons.
  • Investors are succumbing or acting irrationally to the increasing forecasts backed by millions and billions of dollars of AI research. The wave of machines performing menial and bigger computational tasks is shadowing the input-output hardware and software businesses. This year’s Turing Award for conceptual and engineering breakthroughs has been bagged by the trio of Yoshua Bengio, Geoffrey Hinton, and Yann LeCun who have pioneered breakthroughs in deep neural networks. Pedro Domingos from the University of Washington states that machine learning is becoming a central field in computer science and the Turing Award’s choice of selection backs his statement.
  • Artificial Intelligence is not perfect and even massive progress over the years will not be enough to bring it to perfection, just like humans operating AI tech cannot be full-proof from any misadventures.
  • Although AI is not perfect yet senior leaders from the business fraternity think that AI tech can be improved by creating institutions that take a multi-dimensional approach to handle eruptions and disruptions from this technology. Patrick H. Winston, who is the Ford Professor of Engineering at MIT thinks that computers can be enabled to think and act in the ethical and moral space just like human beings and he doesn’t find any reason which will subterfuge this proclamation.
