Stanford University releases first report of study into future of AI
The Stanford University for two years has been running a project called One Hundred Year Study on Artificial Intelligence (AI100), which makes predictions about possible influence that artificial intelligence could have on human life in coming 30 years.
Recently, project’s first report in two years titled ‘Artificial Intelligence and Life in 2030’ was released to reveal the predictions that the researchers have made so far.
The AI100 focuses on future involvement of AI in various fields such as medicine and transportation. Not only that, the project also stresses on fears that lingers around the use of AI and heavy reliance on it in future.
The study is not only useful for researchers but also for policymakers who make long term polices keeping prediction for future in mind. The lawmakers also need to be aware of technological advances so a world full of robots could be regulated well.
The study would take time to complete, but their first report unveils what the study researchers are exactly after. The report is about the past of AI and its present innovations along with its future advancements. It reveals use of AI today and possible application of AI in future of medicine and transpiration with introduction of self-driven vehicles.
"Stanford is excited to host this process of introspection. This work makes practical contribution to the public debate on the roles and implications of artificial intelligence," said Russ Altman, a bioengineering professor and faculty director of AI100 at Stanford. Eric Horvitz, managing director of Microsoft Research's Redmond laboratory, is the brainbehind AI100.
