Remember when sci-fi films made AI look like it’s way far ahead into the dystopian future? Well, that future might become the present sooner than we think. Artificial intelligence is slowly being integrated into daily human activity, from boosting productivity to, for better or for worse, replacing human efficiency.
Various product models are already in possession of, and being used by various corporations. Microsoft and Uber use Knightscope K5 robots as night-time patrol guards that read licence plates, report suspicious activity, and report data to their owners. Gartner listed these robots among its Top 10 strategic technologies for 2019 with the potential to drive significant disruption and deliver opportunity over the next five years.
It’s important to establish, though, that despite what those sci-fi films told us, AI isn’t always a human-like robot. The concept of artificial intelligence can manifest as a software, a program, a simulation, and just about anything else an engineer’s mind can come up with. It’s the soul inside a body, and that body can be anything. Even a home.
AI-driven technology is assessed to be making waves in three particular ways:
The shift from data scientists to professional developers as target consumers.
Assisting professional developers in their tasks through AI-enhanced solutions.
Moving from general development to a more business solution design.
As the technology waters down to mainstream consumers, how will it become a part of newer business models? How soon before it goes from a company’s niche performance tool to a commodity so common, that workflow depends on it? Perhaps that era’s a bit further ahead into the future, but it’s important that we assess that likelihood today to be more prepared tomorrow.
