The AI-first world could look very different in the next decade1

All the tech giants like Microsoft, Facebook, Google and Amazon are joining the AI race one by one and currently, it is a many-legged race where a single winner may well be impossible to predict. Everyone is giving their version of how AI will change the world and trying to push their technology through. But one thing is for certain; AI will surely change more than a few bricks around the globe and may well be the dawn of a new world order.
Speculations aside, there are certain things that will be impacted by AI immediately in the coming years and they range from technological to cultural. Here are some of the possible impacts of AI-

Pervasive computing
With AIs working as personal assistants in the form of Siri, Alexa etc. it is only a matter of time before everything can be controlled by such assistants. Google Home and Amazon Echo are already existing reality so you can simply make your home appliances smarter by instructing them. Amazon Echo, for example, comes with a quaint screen which feels like a nice assistant at home and works better than a phone because of the nature of intimacy. Computers can now literally see things and construct the world fundamentally made of certain objects.

Cameras are evolving fast and that day is not too far when supremely HD cameras will allow AI to sneak into your world to see what you lack, what objects do you need and what kind of service may well be good for your home. It can advise you over issues of health, daily living as well as manual labour. Combined with the personal information on social media, AI can surely know you better than yourself. This may sound a bit scary, but it may reveal a new facade of yours you have never explored before. Your translator and companion Language is probably the greatest barrier on earth in terms of ubiquitous communication. However, with AI, that may well fall in the coming years. AI translators fare as good as human ones and neural networks allow them to be better if technology continues evolving in the next few years. AI can also be a good friend of yours given it is endowed with qualities of empathy and adjustment. AI can, when fed with proper data, know what it takes to become humanitarian. Governing people, better security AI may well pave way for unique governance ideas beyond political propaganda. It may tell you what policies would fare better in terms of popular response and what actions may result from which kind of policies. Data can be used to make your life better and change it for good. So, when government has the right data, it can take the right decisions for your betterment. Cyber attacks will increase with advancement of technology and it is here AI can make decisive interventions. Cybersecurity will go up a few notches and NSA, in fact, is working towards it. Hence, humans will soon be completely dependent on fully automated security methods controlled by AI.
