Before diving into Artificial Intelligence's future, Let's have a look at what is Artificial Intelligence. Artificial Intelligence is a machine Intelligence. In contrast with natural intelligence, machine intelligence is more accurate and efficient because it demonstrated by machines, not by humans or animals. Today, AI properly knowns as narrow AI (or weak AI), just because of designed it for narrow tasks. But, for a long-term goal, many researchers go for general AI (AGI or strong AI).
The world came together to build 5G. Now the next-generation wireless technology is pulling the world apart. The latest version of the 5G technical specifications, expected Friday, adds features for connecting autonomous cars, intelligent factories, and internet-of-things devices to crazy-fast 5G networks. The blueprints reflect a global effort to develop the technology, with contributions from more than a dozen companies from Europe, the US, and Asia. And yet, 5G is also pulling nations apart--with the US and China anchoring the tug-of-war.

The majority of these investments focus on artificial intelligence (AI) and the optimization of self-driving technology. Meanwhile, new mobility systems and players are making their way into the automotive market. Tesla is trying to improve its autopilot system, Uber is testing robo-taxis, and Google is developing self-driving cars.
This ebook, based on the latest ZDNet / TechRepublic special feature, examines how driverless cars, trucks, semis, delivery vehicles, drones, and other UAVs are poised to unleash a new level of automation in the enterprise. Ever since I saw The Exorcist in a theater, I've dreaded such dark manipulation, though I've now come to terms with the benefits of green pea soup. I, therefore, suffered several fits of trepidation on learning that an ad had escaped into the world, an ad which -- according to a powerful official body -- was creating a climate of anxiety. What worried me even more was that this was an ad for an e-bike and the official body was French. Yes, one of America's closest allies and the place where laissez-faire originated.
We already have drones and increasingly autonomous cars, so it's perhaps no surprise that several companies are already working on flying taxis – also known as passenger drones and electrical vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. The first piloted eVTOL services are expected as early as this year, but we could see pilot-less autonomous eVTOLs soon after that. That's right; autonomous flying taxis could be a reality in your lifetime. The number of hours we used to spend sitting in traffic before the coronavirus hit is almost too depressing to think about, particularly if you live in a densely populated, congested city like Los Angeles, New York or London. Some are suggesting eVTOL services could be the answer to our traffic prayers – transporting passengers on congested city routes through the air. Meanwhile, other companies are developing eVTOLs aimed at popular intercity journeys, such as traveling from my home town of Milton Keynes to London.
Amazon recently bought up a self-driving autonomous ride-hailing startup Zoox, which is being claimed as the most ambitious step that the tech giant has taken in the recent past. Reportedly a $1.2 billion deal, the acquisition of the Robo-taxi company is not just to build upon its capabilities to deliver packages but actively set foot in the autonomous driving industry. While Amazon has invested heavily in developing drones or autonomous delivery robots in the past, its investment in self-driving vehicles has recently gained traction. Some of the other ventures of the company have been in self-driving truck Embark when CNBC reported that it had been hauling Amazon cargo on some of its test runs. For instance, in drones, Amazon has designed a future delivery system to safely deliver packages to customers in a short period of time.
Consider the artificially intelligent voices you hear on a regular basis. Are any of them men? Whether it's Apple's Siri, Microsoft's Cortana, Amazon's Alexa, or virtually any GPS system, chances are the computerized personalities in your life are women. This gender imbalance is pervasive in fiction as well as reality. Films like "Her" and "Ex Machina" reflect our anxieties about what intelligent machines mean for humanity.
Earlier this month an article in the Financial Times by John Thornhill, the paper's innovation editor, caught my attention. Thornhill was relaying an intriguing set of ideas expressed by the authors of a new book, What To Do When Machines Do Everything? Before discussing the future impact of today's unfolding industrial innovations such as driverless cars, robotic surgery, precision agriculture, or automated beer service (as in the photo above), the three authors – Malcolm Frank, Paul Roehrig, and Ben Pring – make their first key point, citing the example of an early 19th century innovation that enabled an entire industry that generates $620bn. in annual revenues today. What could this invention have been – The steam engine? Theoretically, you might expect not be too far off with any one of these answers, but in fact the invention in question was … the lawnmower.
Amid light rain in Shanghai, a car automatically stopped at a designated point for pickup and waited for a passenger to get in. After the passenger fastened his or her seat belt, the self-driving car began its journey. It automatically avoided pedestrians, speeded up, slowed down, overtook other cars and navigated traffic lights till it reached its destination. This scene is becoming increasingly common in Shanghai after Didi Chuxing announced on Saturday the opening of its on-demand robo-taxi service to passengers in parts of the city, as the Chinese ride-hailing company steps up the commercialization of self-driving technologies. Didi said that, after signing up on its mobile app, passengers can request rides for free in autonomous vehicles within a designated area in Shanghai covering an automobile exhibition center, business districts, subway stations and hotels in the downtown area.
The car is fitted with leather seats and aluminium details. The Model S is one of the world's top selling plug-in electric cars and this 75D is fitted with All Wheel Drive and autopilot. Last year, a friend of mine invited me to take his Tesla TSLA for a spin to try its self-driving features, called Autopilot. My friend knew I research the ways that humans come to trust -- and distrust -- automation. Of course, I said yes!
