Humanity is moving forward at great strides or at least advancing at the technological level. And it is evident that no aspect of our lives is moving without technology touching it somehow, either for better or for worse, and we’re only in the beginning stages.
So what’s in store for the future? Robots and artificial intelligence, and further down the lane, winding path of history, trans-humanism, the cherry on the cake. While modern robots can now replicate the movements and actions of humans, the next challenge lies in creating autonomous, self-thinking robots that can react to changing conditions.
Artificial intelligence promises to give machines the ability to think analytically, using concepts and advances in computer science, robotics, and mathematics. Once they are perfected, nothing will be the same. Read on and find out how artificial intelligence will affect our lives in the coming future.
1. Tackling household
One of the earliest promises of AI described in science fiction from Isaac Asimov to the Jetsons was robots that could perform household chores and eliminate the drudgery from the workplace. Intelligent robots will not only clean your living room and do the dishes but may also tackle jobs like assembling furniture or caring for kids and pets.
2. Autonomous transportation
The autonomous, driverless car, is already here thanks to Google, and several US States have already passed legislation allowing them to roll down the road. The system allows the vehicle to generate a detailed 3D map of its environment. The car then takes these generated maps and combines them with high-resolution maps of the world, producing different types of data models that will allow it to drive itself.
3. Better Weather Predictions
Predicting the weather accurately can be tricky, especially when you have to go through large volumes of data, but thanks to artificial intelligence software currently being developed that may soon change. The artificial intelligence software will also help farmers and prevent forest fires. NASA is also developing a program that can help aircraft dodge potential storms and danger spots, increasing air safety.
4. Saving the planet
Climate change and its root, pollution, are on everyone’s mind these days, and artificial intelligence will be in the forefront of this battle. Robots and other devices are being developed to clean up the environment and reduce the effects of air and water pollution.
5. Always on guard
Artificial intelligence is widely used to protect families from burglaries and the country from terrorist threats. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security uses an array of AI technology to safeguard the nation, including virtual smart agents to supplement its human workforce. Modern home alarm systems that use AI distinguish between occupants and unknown persons.
6. Space exploration
Artificial intelligence and robots will play a major role in space travel in the not-so-distant future. AI technology help scientists react more quickly to emergencies during manned flights by allowing space-borne astronauts to spot and prevent problems before they happen.
7. Security guard for your finances
More than half of all world stock trades are carried out by artificial intelligence-based software. Artificial intelligence software will also be able to protect consumers from fraud by spotting changes in spending or credit card use. Any anomaly in spending or unusual activity in an account will set off the alarms and the holder will receive a message.
