The Latest News on Artificial Intelligence
With how quickly technology evolves, it can be difficult to keep abreast of artificial intelligence news. We're here to bring you the latest developments happening in the AI world.
Rise of Peer-to-Peer Networks
With all the news about cryptocurrencies, you may have heard about peer-to-peer networks, which are when the processing power of countless individual personal computers is harnessed to create a single, strong AI. For example, one small group can use this power, generated from enormous amounts of data, to create an optimized search engine that challenges even Google. We are likely to see an exponential increase in these networks and only time will tell what other sorts of things this kind of power can achieve.
A Future of Self-Driving Cars
One of the most talked-about developments in AI is the advent of self-driving cars. It seems everyone wants a piece of the action. Tesla made headlines by launching the very first such vehicle. Now Volvo, Cadillac, Audi, and others are getting into the game. Audi is developing the A8, Cadillac has its CT6, and Volvo its XC90. It's only a matter of time before we see even more automotive companies roll out their own versions. Late last year, Uber signed a deal with Volvo for 20,000 cars, showing that the market is already there and it's ready to invest.
AI to Help Us Help Ourselves
Peer-to-peer networks are also being put to use, this time to stop illness and violence! By scanning through the collected data about human health going back years, AI can process and analyze far more than any human. With this information, it can use data from hundreds of hospitals to formulate patterns that will help predict where another outbreak is likely to occur. Similarly, it can detect the sounds that guns make in order to provide an even quicker emergency response, thus saving lives.
