Artificial Intelligence News & Updates: 5 AI Uses That Could Revolutionize The World

By Kristine Walker, Parent Herald April 28, 07:53 am

Artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer just a part of fictional films today. As a matter of fact, AI has become ubiquitous in almost all fields of sciences, offering its remarkable benefits that can revolutionize the world.

What Is Artificial Intelligence?

Despite its protracted history, artificial Intelligence is a field that is still constantly and actively evolving. It is defined as the science and engineering of making intelligent machines through incorporating clever computer programs.

Artificial intelligence is also linked to the analogous task of using computers to understand human intelligence. However, AI does not need to limit itself to biologically perceptible methods.

So, what are the benefits of artificial intelligence? Here are 5 AI uses that could revolutionize the world and help address global issues.

1. Artificial Intelligence In Research

Tesla Motors cofounder and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk recently collaborated with Y Combinator's Sam Altman and former Googler Ilya Sutskever to launch a non-profit platform for artificial intelligence research called OpenAI. The collaboration aimed to carry out ambitious AI research while publishing and open-sourcing almost everything they do.

OpenAI also aims to be the gold standard for benchmarking certain kinds of artificial intelligence algorithms. That's why, the company recently launches the beta of OpenAI Gym, a toolkit for comparing reinforcement learning algorithms that allows researchers to test their processes by having them play games, control a robot simulation or complete tasks.

2. Artificial Intelligence In Environmental Protection

Artificial intelligence is also deemed useful in environmental protection. In fact, researchers recently found that using AI and game theory can outwit poaching and illegal logging.

In addition, artificial intelligence can also help in the better understanding of the distribution of phytoplankton (microalgae) in the oceans through a new satellite mission called PACE (Pre-Aerosol Clouds and ocean Ecosystem). Experts also use artificial intelligence in creating a 3-D living model of the entire planet called EarthCube.

3. Artificial Intelligence In Medicine

Artificial intelligence is also changing the way illnesses are diagnosed and treated. AI is also expected to bring profound and radical changes to healthcare.

Aside from that, artificial intelligence is also proving its benefits in cancer diagnosis. In fact, University of California Los Angeles researchers found a new method of detecting cancer cells faster and more accurately without destroying them.

4. Artificial Intelligence In Foods

Good news, vegans! Chilean scientists have recently used artificial intelligence to develop tastier vegan foods. Food-tech startup The Not Company founders Matias Muchnick, Karim Pichara and biochemist Isidora Silva are using deep learning algorithms to create entirely plant-based foods that are healthy for people and won't have a major ecological impact of meat.

5. Artificial Intelligence In Education

Artificial intelligence is indeed omnipresent in almost all fields of sciences. AI has also become a powerful tool needed to revolutionize education. By using technology and the integration of the ever-evolving cyber tools, AI can be more effective, efficient and interdisciplinary on higher education.

Meanwhile, artificial intelligence could also help in predicting cyber-attacks. With the help of a human analyst, MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and machine-learning startup PatternEx researchers developed an artificial intelligence platform called AI2 that can predict cyber-attacks 85 percent of the time.
