A lot of AI breakdowns were made this year which proved to provide quite a boost to the healthcare department. More discoveries were made regarding deep learning and several records for speech recognition were effortlessly broken this year. In fact, a lot of universities and companies like Oxford, GE’s Avitas System, Stanford, etc. made a huge progress in AI technology by either coming up with new algorithms or by investing in deep learning supercomputers.
We achieved a lot of major milestones this year like AI robots passing the medical examinations, NVIDIA collaborating with GE Healthcare to include AI technology in medical devices, and so on. However, AI progress is not yet over, there are a few predictions for 2018 about AI that several researchers and industry leaders have shared all across the world.
AI will be incorporated in medicine
Perhaps one of the most obvious predictions for AI for 2018 is that it will be fully incorporated into medicine and won’t remain a theory or a concept anymore. Doctors will use AI to analyze the patient symptoms and conditions and will use it assess the patient’s medical history in order to come up with a suitable treatment plan. AI will be greatly useful in diagnosing and providing a solution for different medical conditions.
AI will be used in engineering designs
In 2018, deep learning will be greatly helpful in changing and improving the engineering simulation and designs and will really help in speeding up product development from years to months or even days in some cases.
AI will transform into a content creator
Since AI keeps on learning something new every day and then uses it in its capabilities, it is safe to say that in the coming years, AI will be able to create new personalized items. It will be able to create music, images, videos, etc. according to your likes and will use predictive analysis to prepare future media that you might enjoy.
Biometrics will replace all the tangible identity cards
One of the most interesting artificial intelligence prediction for 2018 is that you won’t need your credit card or your driving license anymore. AI’s facial recognition capability will ensure that your face acts as the barcode and provides you with all the necessary capabilities without having to carry around extra identification cards. This will also mean that there are fewer chances of you losing your identity and don’t have to worry about your social and financial security anymore.
Completely incorporate AI into the Daily Life
In 2018, AI robots will become smarter and will be able to perform complex and normal daily tasks with ease. You would be able to use your robot to clean the house or get the groceries but that is not all. Your robot will also be able to perform mundane tasks like picking up your laundry, changing the TV channel, and so on.
You literally won’t need to move, the artificial intelligence robot will take care of everything for you.
AI PA’s will become smarter
We all know about AI assistants like Cortana, Siri, etc. which have made the life of most users much simpler and easier and so, it is predicted that in 2018, these personal assistants will get even smarter and will be able to tend to your most needs. They will learn about your daily routine and then incorporate your likes and dislikes accordingly.
They would not only know what to order on which day but will also ensure that you don’t miss out on any hobby that you are otherwise interested in. So, if you happen to love a certain book which is going to be released soon, you can be sure that your AI personal assistant will get it ordered to your doorstep.
AI will not only revolutionize the healthcare but will also lend a significant hand to the development and improvement of other services. It is predicted that 2018 will be the start of the AI dominance and as the years pass, AI will take over all possible services and will offer you a more efficient and quick system.
