In 2015, artificial intelligence came to surround us, and we probably didn’t even realize it. We’re talking about more than just Siri too. In 2015 we saw a device that allows blind people to “see” by taking in visual data, interpreting it with a smartphone app which then feeds a verbal description into the person’s ear. The app of course, uses AI to determine what it is that the person is seeing.
This technology uses deep learning, which is the way that machines become artificially intelligent. You might not even realize that some of the technologies you use every day include this deep learning technology. Google Photos uses it when it allows you to search with words through your photos for locations, people, and things like “fish.” On Facebook, when it “knows” who is in your photos, that is the cause of deep learning, and when your Skype account translates your conversations simultaneously, that is also deep learning.
Both Facebook and Google have open sourced their deep learning technologies, meaning that they know the AI is the way to go for the future. What do you think AI will bring for 2016?
