AI is essential when it comes to cybersecurity
The number of cyber attacks has skyrocketed during the last few years, and system admins have got a lot on their plates these days. The good news is that artificial intelligence can be of great help by determining typical attack patterns, identifying, and then helping mitigate low and mid-level risks. By making use of AI, virus researchers can quickly identify new viruses without having to utilize their signatures, for example.
Artificial intelligence helps drivers stay away from reckless speeding
A recent report by the Governors Highway Safety Association, a nonprofit entity representing the highway safety offices of states, territories, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, highlights the fact that excessive speed accounts for a third of road fatalities. Adam Kahn, vice president of fleet business at Netradyne, has created a vision-based driver recognition tool that can help drivers understand the consequences of their reckless-driving behavior.
AI can fix the broken patient-doctor relationship
Artificial Intelligence may replace doctors someday, but Eric Topol, a cardiologist at the Scripps Research Institute, isn't worried about that. According to him, deteriorated patient-doctor relationships can be fixed by making use of AI, which has grown to a level where it can diagnose various human conditions better than most burned-out doctors.
Artificial intelligence will control on-demand bus services in Japan
Next Mobility, the company established by Mitsubishi and the Nishi-Nippon Railroad Company (a key bus operator in Japan) will make use of AI to generate optimized routes which take the passengers' requests into account. People will use their smartphones to set their destinations, and then the artificial intelligence algorithms will create the most efficient bus routes that have the potential to please everyone.
AI may shape the future of music
Software applications are now capable to generate full music tracks on their own. Some of these songs may sound amateurish, but several startups, such as Amper, have built solid solutions that can replace entire bands, helping composers experiment with lots of musical ideas by choosing the desired genre, mood, tempo and instruments, and then tweaking them until they are happy with the results.
