Decades of research in artificial intelligence (AI) have produced formidable technologies that are providing immense benefit to industry, government, and society. AI systems can now translate across multiple languages, identify objects in images and video, streamline manufacturing processes, and control cars. The deployment of AI systems has not only created a trillion-dollar industry that is projected to quadruple in three years, but has also exposed the need to make AI systems fair, explainable, trustworthy, and secure. Future AI systems will rightfully be expected to reason effectively about the world in which they (and people) operate, handling complex tasks and responsibilities effectively and ethically, engaging in meaningful communication, and improving their awareness through experience. Achieving the full potential of AI technologies poses research challenges that require a radical transformation of the AI research enterprise, facilitated by significant and sustained investment. These are the major recommendations of a recent community effort coordinated by the Computing Community Consortium and the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence to formulate a Roadmap for AI research and development over the next two decades.
Imagine a network of mine sites operated remotely--drilling, analysing core samples, collecting and interpreting data wirelessly from machine to machine, and transmitting real-time information into the cloud, absolutely without physical, human touch. In fact, it is fast becoming the reality in an industry that's increasingly powered by artificial intelligence a.k.a When we think of AI, we think of robots and machines capable of independent thought or autonomous movement. These are possibilities, and even realities, in today's world where practically anything can be automated. AI, however, goes beyond hardware, and its applications are farther-reaching than we can perhaps imagine.
With an operating footprint of up to 50km from the mining pit to iron ore carriers, it was easy for Citic Pacific Mining, Australia's largest magnetite mining company, to lose track of its assets, such as light vehicles, buses and service trucks.
