In recent years, there has been a dynamic development of AI. Artificial intelligence is already capable of many things in a whole range of industries. For example, we have autonomous vehicles and automated production systems. And we can also search for information and communicate with companies using voice and chatbots.
Without a doubt, the global pandemic has accelerated the use and development of AI. More and more companies are investing in AI consulting services. The pace will not slow down in 2022. In this article, we are going to show you some of the most interesting AI predictions for 2022.
Will artificial intelligence 2022 become more ethical?
In 2022, AI will be fair, understandable, compatible with privacy, and will meet new ethical requirements. In recent years, some companies (and governments) have already been using AI ethically and responsibly. It is argued that the number of such organizations will double in the coming year. What’s more, the demand for this solution will spread among other industries.
The introduced regulations will most likely prohibit the use of AI in a way that will cause harm, for instance:
- Biometric identification in public spaces for law enforcement
- Social scoring by public authorities
Some countries like the UK, China, and the USA have already published some AI-related safety regulations. In the USA, for example, organizations and companies need to prove that they are complying with regulations and use AI in an ethical and responsible way and in a manner that benefits end-users.
AI trends for 2022: Will creative AI systems win dozens of patents?
Creativity and artificial intelligence seem to be two different, very distant worlds. AI is generated by machines, while creativity is a trait that is attributed exclusively to humans. However, South Africa granted the first patent to a creative AI system called DABUS. An attempt was made to obtain a similar patent in the EU and the USA, but to no avail. The reason for rejecting the patent application was that, yes, the fact that creativity is strictly a human trait, and a patent cannot be granted to an AI system. Although, it is believed that this seminal step taken by South Africa encourages further innovations in the field of creative AI. It is highly possible that dozens of such patents will be granted in 2022.
Next year, we will see artificial intelligence becoming more comprehensive and going beyond the intellectual functions that we associate it with today. Artificial Intelligence will most likely evolve into a more emotional and creative form (including other more abstract and typically human characteristics).
There will be more AI platforms and digital companies
In the near future, we can expect artificial intelligence to be more embedded at the core of pretty much everything from architecture to operations. Many traditional companies will undergo a thorough digital transformation by adopting this new AI approach. As a result, many companies will be able to offer their customers some new and exciting services. Here, we can talk about such solutions as virtual care or digital baristas. The world is more and more digitized, and AI plays a significant role in this shift.
Companies will surely develop more AI-based products and applications. And speaking of the applications, it should be mentioned that the “responsible AI” draws great attention. It will be of paramount importance to eliminate “evil” and adverse applications, where artificial intelligence is used to deliver malicious outcomes, e.g., ransomware.
AI predictions for 2022: More advanced, human-like experience
There is no doubt that AI will be in the spotlight next year. In 2022, artificial intelligence will become more human; it will also become a much more comprehensive business tool. Although there are people who are quite skeptical about innovative artificial intelligence solutions, this thinking may change the very next year. Certainly, the regulations on the ethical and responsible use of artificial intelligence will make people look at AI with a less critical eye. Artificial Intelligence will develop to be as close to human experience as possible.
AI trends for 2022: More virtual assistants
The last place on our list is quite obvious–the number of virtual assistants will continue to grow:
Even today, chat and voicebots are able to conduct the entire conversation with the customer and answer the most frequently asked questions and requests. This naturally allows companies to reduce the number of employees working in the call center and limit their role to taking over communication when the bot turns out to be insufficient. Future chatbots will be more advanced and interactive, leading the way to new applications of this tremendous technology.
