As AI becomes more commonplace, we begin to wonder: what is next? We may already be familiar with the term, and it’s a presence in our daily lives. But how did the field develop? The modern field of AI was created in 1956 and took decades to develop. But there are many things to be excited about, and we should start today. AI is not yet at the stage where it will create mass unemployment.
With the RCN Internet of Things, companies will generate massive amounts of data, much of which is unprocessed. This data can be analyzed by advanced algorithms. The ability to recognize rare events and optimize unique scenarios requires intelligent processing. AI-enabled products can be developed using application programming interfaces, which are portable packages of code. For example, home security systems can be enhanced with image recognition capabilities using an API. Other applications will offer Q&A capabilities to explain patterns in data and help humans interact with it.
With the power of AI, businesses can create a new customer experience based on the emotion of the consumer. For example, AI-powered Amazon warehouses will have 100,000 robots, but human employees will continue to do the packing and picking functions. Humans are still the most valuable assets, so the technology is a tool to amplify our human qualities. With so many applications in consumer goods and business, AI will change the face of the economy and lead to new startup companies. The future of AI-enabled machines will change the world and create new jobs.
