What AI Should We Build: The Most Promising Technology Trends in 2022

Machine learning, neural networks and all related technologies continue to evolve. AI has penetrated many areas of life and work. According to Sunder Pecha, CEO of Google Inc. and parent company Alphabet, the impact of artificial intelligence (its weak form) on humanity is comparable to the impact that the use of fire or the beginning of the use of electricity had.

The impact of AI technologies on humanity is gradually growing, and next year it will continue to grow. Experts predict several trends that will become the main factors in the development of AI technologies in 2022.

Additional workforce

We are talking about the fact that AI technologies will significantly increase the capabilities of conventional tools used in companies. Machine learning provides an opportunity to improve human performance. For example, in medicine.

the method of analyzing X-ray images through AI is beginning to be increasingly used. Machines detect signs of diseases in the early stages, which in many cases a person is unable to do. A lot of pictures go through a regular doctor a day and it is clear that over time concentration and attention fall, so the doctor may miss some important points.

The industry is actively using predictive analytics, a technology that makes it possible to determine the probability of failure of the unit or its element even before something actually breaks. Accordingly, the continuity of production, and hence business processes, improves.

In the next year, the technology will continue to develop, experts from different industries will increasingly begin to use tools that make it possible to sort the huge amounts of information needed to solve different problems.

So, now machines are able to very realistically simulate human speech – it is extremely difficult to recognize where a person is talking and where a machine is talking.

Open-air is currently working on a successor to GPT-4 that will be even more efficient.

AI in information security

This year, the World Economic Forum called cybercrime potentially more dangerous than terrorism. As machines permeate every area of ​​our lives and work, as discussed above, hacking and cybercrime are bound to become more of an issue.

Literally every connected device that is added to the network inevitably becomes a potentially vulnerable element that an attacker can use against a company or individual.

Low- and zero-code in business

The shortage of qualified developers has now reached unprecedented heights. The global deficit, according to the estimates of analytical agencies, is several tens of percent – up to 40% in some industries.

In many cases, business, science, and the state cannot do without qualified developers. But in a number of cases, you can use an alternative – no-code systems that allow ordinary users to develop services and applications.

And here a very important role is played by artificial intelligence, which is able to translate various user actions into program code. By the way, speech recognition also finds its place in this niche. Natural language recognition and modeling technologies in the near future may make it possible to use only voice commands or interact with an interface to write services and programs.

Of course, the path here is still long, but zero-code reality is already somewhere nearby.

Autopilot

Another industry that continues to develop in the most active way. More recently, it was impossible to imagine a car that, without human intervention, rolls itself along public roads. In science fiction, of course, a lot has been said about this, but in real life, cases have only recently begun to appear.

By the way, according to Elon Musk, the number of accidents after the penetration of techno piloting into the automotive industry can be reduced by up to 50%. Tesla is making the most significant progress in this direction so far. But competitors are also not sleeping. So, WeMo (created by Google), Apple, GM and Ford, a number of Chinese startups have advanced very far in the creation of autopilot systems.

So, next year, the world’s first ship that crosses the Atlantic under the control of artificial intelligence may appear.

Art

We are talking about the creation of works of art with the help of AI technologies. Writing articles and stories, creating musical compositions, paintings and even video games is most likely not a very distant reality.

Probably in 2022 we will hear about new breakthrough projects that have allowed machines to master new areas for themselves. More recently, it was believed that the computer could not play Go, since it seemed to be based more on intuition than hard rules. But no, artificial intelligence has long defeated man in go, many computer games.

Well, now it’s the turn of AI to create games, texts, videos, pictures.
