Unveiling the Top AI Trends: Exploring Exciting Possibilities and Future Opportunities

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines. Driven by information and communication technology, AI creates a paradigm shift in numerous sectors of the tech industry and continues to evolve and reshape the economy. Three major AI trends are revolutionising the industry:

  • Creative or Generative AI. Generative AI refers to the machine learning generative data to produce new or existing outputs in various creative domains such as art, designing visuals, creating music, copywriting, etc. It has a wide range of applications that are helpful for students, schools and organisations at large. Here are 2 examples of OpenAI applications; ChatGPT-4 and DALL.E2. Let’s check out some of these applications below.
  • Collaborative Robots or AI-human collaboration. Collaborative robots are also known as cobots, and they are coded to perform repetitive or strenuous tasks. Cobots are widely used in serving food dishes in the food and beverage restaurants, autonomous-driven Electric Vehicles in the car industry and the deployment of ‘security cobots’ in shopping malls or hospitals to replace security guards.
  • Ethics and regulation. There are many advantages of generative AI, but others worry about its abuse, such as the creation of false films. These tools can be used by cybercriminals to engage in fraud, defamation, blackmail, retaliation, etc., The distinction between original materials published and proprietary content also raises concerns in the media. The AI industry anticipates that consumers and customers will want openness, security, and ethical behaviour.

In Year 2021, an EU Act on AI was implemented to three risk categories. Firstly, it is not appropriate to employ programmes and systems that pose an intolerable danger, like a threat to a country. Secondly, there are special regulatory criteria that apply to high-risk applications, such as programmes that scan CVs and rate job candidates. Lastly, applications that are not indicated as high-risk are mainly uncontrolled.

Generative AI enables creative outputs in domains like art and music. OpenAI’s applications, such as ChatGPT-4 and DALL.E2. exemplify its potential. Collaborative robots (Cobots) perform tasks alongside humans. However, ethical concerns arise, and regulations like the EU Act on AI address these risks. Balancing openness, security and ethics is crucial in AI development.
