Report highlights future AI contributions

A panel of academic and industrial thinkers has prepared a report that underlines future AI contributions, targeting the 2030. The report titled, ‘Artificial Intelligence and Life in 2030’, forms to be part of the One Hundred Year Study on Artificial Intelligence (A100), a project of Stanford University.

Computer scientist Peter Stone at The University of Texas at Austin believes that specialized AI applications will be more common and useful by 2030. It will improve quality of life for humans. Along with this, AI will also result into hurdles.

AI would affect jobs and incomes. Stone believes that there is a need to discuss those issues so that their solutions could be found. The panel has in fact looked beyond 2030 to predict the level of advancement that will come in artificial intelligence (AI) and its effect in a North American city.

Harvard University computer scientist Barbara Grosz said that AI technologies could be considered trustworthy and beneficial overall. “Being transparent about their design and deployment challenges will build trust and avert unjustified fear and suspicion”, mentioned Grosz.

The report has mentioned about eight different areas of human activity in which AI technologies have already made an impact. The report makers think that the effect would become stronger by 2030. Among them are AI applications that could help screen tissue samples for cancers.

One of the sections of the report focuses on transportation. Already, a lot of discussions are on with regard to self-driving cars. The report has also pointed out on employment and workplace trends, which would be significantly impacted with AI.

The report that focuses on different areas, including entertainment, employment and workplace, public safety and security and health care would provide realistic idea on how AI technologies will affect society.
