Artificial intelligence depends on data from extraction of insights but this will change in the coming years as AI shifts to reasoning and less data.
The intelligence of AI systems¹ will accelerate with the technology addressing challenges from a human viewpoint. Instead of having the mindset of a robot, artificial intelligence wants to understand the challenges humans experience daily.
This will create more opportunities for businesses by helping them to leverage operations and become competitive. At the same time, this will help businesses develop strong decision-making skills as changes occur in their industries.
In the world of technology, AI advancement has been a learning experience for both humans and technology itself. Data has always proven that the facts obtained are either right or wrong.
In the recent past, AI has advanced exponentially through #deeplearning and machine learning, understanding their systems by training them through data. Unfortunately, data-hungry systems² face business and ethical constraints.
Business and Ethical Constraints
Business and ethical constraints involve conduct based on integrity and trust. Ethical constraints relate toempathetic decision-making, compliance and governance policies consistent with the company’s core values.
Many companies do not have volume of data necessary to build products using neural networks³.
#Algorithms recognize patterns by creating a deep learning experience for companies to understand. This makes it harder for companies to make advancements whether it is decision-making or ethical reasoning.
Consequently, companies struggle to match up to competition when competitors have more data. These massive amounts of data raise huge privacy issues; issues that have led to government action in the past.
Data-hungry systems and applications are an assumption of observations, measurements or facts gathered that it does not satisfy artificial intelligence. An example is TikTok, Netflix, and other applications that consumers use daily.
Why is that? Consumers are drawn to these applications, like social media or digital streaming where they get hooked. When starting out, consumers search and stream what they like and are willing to watch consistently.
From this, the observations gathered are taken into account and put into an algorithm⁴, where recommendations are created to show the consumer interests.
Netflix is a great example where a new consumer who likes to watch romantic, adventure, and horror movies/TV shows will have a “What To Watch” section on their home page. This gives them access to all the romantic, adventure, and horror movies/TV shows that are available on the digital streaming application.
To craft a vision where AI is heading, companies should look for developments in four areas: more efficient robot reasoning, ready expertise, common sense, and making better bets.
More efficient Robot Reasoning
Robots resemble a human being, replicate certain human movements and function automatically, giving them smart reasoning. Robots have a conceptual understanding⁵ of the world, just like humans do, making it easier to teach them. Even though #robots and humans differ, they show similar attributes when it comes to cognitive thinking.
It takes humans years to learn their purpose in life, and whether it is learning through teaching or self-learning, humans have their own way of thinking.
Robots learn but require less time to understand their purpose. The world will see more efficient robot reasoning and #artificialgeneralintelligence⁶.
Having the right human experts is a must for any company using artificial intelligence. Top-down artificial intelligence can beat data-hungry approaches with the right human personnel, designing and controlling many varieties of factory equipment from gas turbines to bending machines.
For example, Tesla used artificial intelligence to create the world’s first-ever Autopilot AI, which was created less about the data and more about the human motion of driving.
Using bottom-up #machinelearning methods⁷, like Tesla did when creating the Autopilot AI for their cars where the AI learns in case of emissions and wear.
This will make artificial intelligence continuously seek the best solution in real-time, just like human decision making. This is what experts are doing for companies when creating artificial intelligence.
Organizations are working together to teach machines to navigate throughout the world by using common sense, which is what some humans do when it comes to making decisions. This will help artificial intelligence⁸ understand everyday objects and actions, communicate naturally, handle unforeseen situations, and learn from experiences.
However, this comes naturally sometimes to humans so it will take a long time with artificial intelligence for them to fully understand how to use common sense.
This is an area that artificial intelligence has not figured out well yet, making it difficult for artificial intelligence to make the leap that needs to be taken. As humans understand the common sense, AI has to understand this to make good judgment. This might even be the biggest decisions leading to good results for the company.
Making better Bets
Effortlessly and routinely, humans sort through different possibilities and actions, even some relating to prior experiences they have encountered in the past.
Machines are now being taught to mimic actions and reasoning through an application called the Gaussian processes⁹. Now, this application goes through probabilistic models that deal with uncertainty extensively, acting on sparse data and learning from past experiences.
This is similar to holding memories and reminiscing on them like humans do when they show emotions. Generally, this would never happen in artificial intelligence based on ethical constraints¹⁰ but more likely to happen when it comes to data-hungry systems.
These systems have a similar outlook to black boxes, which are a complex piece of equipment, typically a unit in an electronic system, with contents that are mysterious to the user. They are found on aircraft’s to record the flight data during the trip.
However, it is not clear how they use input data to arrive at outputs like actions or decisions. There is no cognitive learning in this, as these systems do not think like humans do until they are programmed and taught how to do it.
The Future is less Data Hungry AI Systems
Overall, AI systems will become less data-hungry. Artificial intelligence will begin providing less data and instead focus on human thinking, like a business and ethical constraints that companies understand daily.
Companies must craft their vision of artificial intelligence¹¹ by having more efficient robot reasoning, ready expertise, understanding common sense, and making better bets on all their decision-making.
#Artificialintelligence has come a very long way since 1955 and there is still much to learn for both humans and technology. The world is on the right path and losing less data-hungry AI systems will help the companies in many ways.
