Artificial intelligence. Virtual reality. Augmented reality. This post focuses on artificial intelligence predictions. However, let us begin with definitions of these concepts.
As summarized by Scott Jennings for Qlick:
“Artificial Intelligence (AI). A computer acts similar to human learning and decision making. It works via an expert system or a program. An example is a digital personal assistant on an online store. It works with a customer. It learns from that customer. And it recommends for that customer.”
“Virtual Reality (VR). It is an artificial, computer-generated simulation. It might recreate a real-life environment or situation. An example is a 3-D store shelf that adapts based on past purchases.”
“Augmented Reality (AR). It adds computer enhancements for meaning and interaction. An example is those who digitally view rugs in diverse colors and styles.”
And according to Brian J. Dooley, reporting for TDWI (Transforming Data with Intelligence):
“Firms can combine virtual reality and artificial intelligence. VR is an emerging technology that modern businesses track. But it tends to remain at the lower end of the interest scale. On the other hand, many enterprises consider AI important. However, between AI and VR connections are deeper than they appear. And their integration provides a new range of experiences and options.”
“Applying AI to VR allows AI-based continuous image recognition . It can report results in a VR display. In security, this can adopted for identity detection. It could flag images or people for a security guard.”

Artificial Intelligence Predictions by SEVEN Experts
In 2017, Inc. interviewed 7 tech billionaires to see their AI predictions for. Do YOU agree with the predictions made by these leaders?

Artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and virtual reality have all developed and become almost mainstream over the past few years. However, I feel like it has not taken off as many people predicted that it would. I personally don’t agree with Amazon’s CEO that believes it will improve every business and government. I don’t think there is much use to it other than entertainment or gaming. I agree with Elon Musk, he believes it is a risk to humanity. I agree with this because I think that at some point we have to stop giving up everything in this world to technology. I don’t want my kids playing a virtual soccer game, I want them playing it outdoors in real life.
The three concepts are quite different. AI is taking off. VR not so much. 🙂
I think it can already be seen just how much of an interest in artificial intelligence firms have. My friend who works for IBM, as an intern, has been assigned to work on projects that introduce the interns to their artificial intelligence department. A lot of firms are trying to get ahead int eh development of artificial intelligence, and will be pretty interesting to see what companies continue to come up with. In regards to the video, I agree with Bill Gates because he has a seemingly balanced view on the development of A.I. He basically said that its important to recognize both sides: the good and bad effects.
I think AI is an amazing concept and has extremely beneficial uses; however, there is a scary aspect to it. I recently watched a video regarding singularity, a hypothetical situation when AI surpasses human intelligence. Although I am confident this won’t happen it our lifetime, it would certainly be a fascinating and terrifying scenario.
I do agree with Bill Gates’s opinion. The horrible outcome of AI could be found in many movies, and some people hold the negative attitude towards AI. Actually, AI could benefit human greatly from every perspective of life. It is not necessary to be panic, but we do need to worry about the future. Few months ago, Alpha Go defeated Jie Ke who is the first rank in Chess globally. Some people pointed that Alpha Go even could pretend to lose so that it could keep its opponent active to compete, which surprised me a lot. We might think about how to control this technology and how to avoid being controlled by AI.
