How A.I. is set to evolve in 2022

#artificialintelligence

Machines are getting smarter and smarter every year, but artificial intelligence is yet to live up to the hype that's been generated by some of the world's largest technology companies. AI can excel at specific narrow tasks such as playing chess but it struggles to do more than one thing well. A seven-year-old has far broader intelligence than any of today's AI systems, for example. "AI algorithms are good at approaching individual tasks, or tasks that include a small degree of variability," Edward Grefenstette, a research scientist at Meta AI, formerly Facebook AI Research, told CNBC. "However, the real world encompasses significant potential for change, a dynamic which we are bad at capturing within our training algorithms, yielding brittle intelligence," he added.

Machine Intelligence is increasing every year, but still Artificial Intelligence (AI) is about to live up to the reputation or hype that is created abut it by the technology companies in the world. AI still has a long way to go before behaving like a human intelligence but we will certainly see the evolution of AI in 2022. AI can excel at specific tasks but it struggles to do more than the specified tasks. It is better at doing programmed tasks than taking intelligent decisions or situational decisions. Edward Grefenstette, a Research Scientist at Meta AI said, "AI algorithms are good at approaching individual tasks, or tasks that include a small degree of variability. However, the real world encompasses significant potential for change, a dynamic which we are bad at capturing within our training algorithms, yielding brittle intelligence."

The year has introduced some gigantic AI models and GPT-3 competitors while witnessing regulatory crackdowns on big tech from countries worldwide. Some companies provided huge aids for the pandemic struck nations, and some went in other directions, like flying to space. The year only kept getting more interesting by the end. We've got you a timeline of the year, highlighting the most important updates of 2021 you should know. AI21 Labs released a language model that it claims is'the largest and most sophisticated language model ever released for general use by developers.'

It feels like this man needs no introduction, but for anyone who doesn't know who Demis Hassabis is, here's the lowdown. He's the cofounder and chief executive of the London-headquartered DeepMind AI lab, which was acquired by Google in 2014 for £400m. Prior to DeepMind, Hassabis had his own computer games company called Elixir Studios, but his passion for games goes way back. He was a chess master at the age of 13 and the second-highest-rated under 14 player in the world at one time. Catherine Breslin is a machine learning scientist and consultant based in Cambridge.


Meta describes how AI will unlock the metaverse

It's not news that Mark Zuckerberg wants to lead the charge in the emergent metaverse with his company, Meta (formerly Facebook). The recently concluded Meta event titled "Inside the lab: Building for the metaverse with AI" was another step in Meta's quest to unlock the metaverse with AI, after its previous announcement that it was developing a record-breaking supercomputer to power the metaverse. Experts have said that AI, VR, AR, blockchain and 5G will converge to power the metaverse, and Zuckerberg is keen on building several huge AI systems that will drive the nascent metaverse world. "We work on a lot of different technologies here at Meta -- everything from virtual reality to designing our own data centers. And we're particularly focused on foundational technologies that can make entirely new things possible. Today, we're going to focus on perhaps the most important foundational technology of our time: artificial intelligence," said Zuckerberg.
