AI to solve the world's Challenges
Using artificial intelligence to make the world a better place.
There are many issues that could be solved with the use of AI. Problems ranging from Energy Efficiency, Environment, Transportation, Fodd and water, Disease and Human Suffering, Education and many others. The possibilities are endless.
Many artificial intelligence projects are working to solve a lot of the problems we face.
The first one is Comma.AI
I have been following George Hotz and his creations for a while now even though he went MIA for a bit. He has been extremely creative with his projects and has always excelled at pushing technology. Back when he was 17 he was able to crack the career locked iPhone and later the ps3 which he got in a lot of trouble for and because of a lawsuit he promised to never hack any Sony consoles.
One of his recent projects is Comma.ai. The world of autonomous driving is expanding and for a good reason. Over 90% of the crashes are caused by some type of human error. Tesla is a big player in the world of autonomous driving and recently Google has been trying to get involved with Waymo. George has created a device that learns from driving patterns of people and is able to convert cars into fully autonomous vehicles using the inbuilt cruise control system. His goal is to achieve level 4 autonomous driving which is cars driving without any need for human help. After his deal with Tesla did not go through he decided to make the project open source and after getting through some legal issues he is able to sell his device on his website.
The software is not perfect but it learns from its mistakes and is able to recognize human driving patterns. The device itself is very cheap and is supported on may cars already. The more people use it the better it gets and the closer we get to achieving fully autonomous vehicle and fewer lives are lost due to car crashes.
CIMON a companion for an astronaut.
CIMON is still in development but is still the very first AI robot to ever go to the space station.
Astronauts have to complete many difficult jobs and Crew Interactive Mobile Companion or CIMON for short will be there to help them. The robot is equipped with facial recognition so is able to know who he?/she?/it? Is talking to. Its able to fly around in the spaceship and astronauts are simply able to ask him for his help on certain experiments. This is just the beginning of companion robots. Things always start out for a big purpose before they make it to the general public. The Internet was developed for the Military and the GPS was also made for the military but now we all have access to it. It won’t be far until every person has their own companion robots that are able to help them out on their day to day tasks making our lives easier.
AI in Agriculture!
The recent interest in AI has created an endless possibility for every field and agriculture is not getting left behind. There are a ton of different technologies being developed to help with humans with their agricultural tasks such as harvesting crops. Ones fully developed the robots are going to be able to monitor the crops and the soil, analyze and predict environmental impacts on the crop yield. They will also be able to recognize unwanted plants and remove them so the crop gets all the nutrients it needs. This is just the beginning of the development of new AI technology as it progresses forward you can even expect fully autonomous farms that produce way more food then we have every done without us having to do a single thing.
These are only a few of the issues that are being solved by AI right now but the possibilities are infinite. Any issue you can think of can be solved by developed AI. I think when we rea AI is as intelligent as a human being AI will be able to better itself and that can allow us to throw any of our problem at and it would come up with may possible solutions. Which then we can decide to impliment to solve our problems.
There is also another problem with AI people like to think that AI is dangerous and will eventually take away people’s jobs. However, that is not the case AI taking over our tasks just means that we have better things to do and work on other types of technology. We have not had to adapt to a single thing in our recent human history. If we don’t like something we end up changing it. Advance AI might be the only thing that requires us to adapt to it and take on newer and bigger tasks.
