AI research is a 'moral imperative' with the power to save lives, experts say


Machine learning and artificial intelligence have the ability to transform everything from transportation to medicine, but the industry has a long way to go to get to that point. Bloomberg Beta Partner Shivon Zilis and Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence CEO Oren Etzioni talked AI, robotics, machine learning, voice integration, online privacy and other futuristic topics at the GeekWire Summit 2016. The very agreeable pair concurred that AI and machine learning are showing up in a lot of applications and industries already, but the development of those concepts is in only the first inning of a nine inning game. Concern over job losses, and of course the fear over a great robot uprising is persists. But AI, Zilis and Etzioni said, has the potential to make people's lives better and even save lives.

Thousands of openings in artificial intelligence and machine learning posted on job boards are going unfilled. In fact, though AI is one of the fastest-growing areas for high-tech professionals, according to a recent Kiplinger report, there are too few qualified engineers. "Supply is far lower than demand," says Boris Babenko, a machine vision engineer at Orbital Insight, a company in Palo Alto, Calif., that uses AI to make sense of data gathered from satellite images. "That's true of all software engineering, but AI is a niche on top of that." The need for AI specialists exists in just about every field as companies seek to give computers the ability to think, learn, and adapt.
