AI Is The Future: Advancements and Predictions for the Next Decade

AI Is The Future: Advancements and Predictions for the Next Decade
4 min read

AI arrived in a hurry, and continues to gain momentum. It's clear that the future of artificial intelligence will change how industries function – in fact, they already have, as almost 40% of businesses have adopted it in some form. But what will come next in the future of AI?

It's difficult to predict how AI will evolve in the next 10 years, as it's making strides on an almost monthly basis. However, here are some big advancements we could see in the future of artificial intelligence...  

More advanced scientific research (at lesser cost)

Many scientific discoveries are made in a lab, or during a clinical trial. While there are many manual processes involved with scientific research, AI might reduce the need to conduct expensive (and extensive) experiments. 

As artificial neural networks become more advanced, the next decade may see less need for pricey particle accelerators that simulate impacts from various forces (physics), as an example. AI will be able to learn and draw conclusions from data modeling, while also helping to fill in the gaps of what scientists don't know. 

Robot-guided surgery

This may seem like something from the distant future, but doctors are already using robots in healthcare. Currently, surgeons can direct robots from a console when performing complex operations that require precision. 

In the future of AI, it's possible autonomic machines will advance to the point of performing surgeries without any intervention from a human. Meanwhile, AI is boosting other areas of healthcare, from predicting diseases based on changing data and suggesting possible treatments. 

Meanwhile, AI can help design smaller particle accelerators to advance medical imaging, and even sterilize medical equipment more easily. 

 Seamless transportation

Driverless cars already exist using artificial learning, but there are bugs to work out before they're mass adopted. But thanks to the ability for AI to self-learn using visual data, autonomic vehicles will soon be able to navigate traffic without much risk. 

Big companies are jumping on board with this technology, adding features such as self-parking to their fleets. AI is the future for advancements such as drone taxis – which can also fly. (It's not far-fetched – pilotless aerial passenger vehicles have already been tested in China.)

Assisting education workers

There's already some concern about how natural language processing (NLP) platforms including ChatGPT can create an article with a few simple inputs. Teachers are already starting to see assignments created by AI, and it will get tougher to spot in the future of artificial intelligence

However, AI will also evolve in the coming years to detect itself. (There are already AI detectors being developed with varying success.) The same technology will also be able to quickly determine plagiarism. 

But it might go even further than that to enhance student learning. AI will monitor the expressions of students' faces to see who is bored or struggling with a subject, so more attention can be focused on their needs. (This technology already has a name: Affective Computing.) 

Boosting national (and company) security

Because of AI's ability to recognize potential threats both visually and from data, it will become integral to maintaining national security. The National Security Commission in the U.S. has already stressed the importance of harnessing AI in the near future, noting, "It is no secret that America’s military rivals are integrating AI concepts and platforms to challenge the United States’ decades-long technology advantage."

However, AI is already playing a role in security on a smaller scale. AI-enabled algorithms can detect cyber attacks that cost companies $6.9 billion in 2021 alone. AI can also detect and respond to threats in real time. 

AI is the future 

How artificial intelligence will change the future is an exciting topic, with many possibilities. Learn how Habana Labs is staying on top of the trends with its AI training accelerators and inferencing (predictions based on data).
