Two words are dominating CES, the annual consumer electronics extravaganza, underway this week in Las Vegas. Artificial Intelligence.
Thanks to Hollywood, AI may conjure thoughts of ultra-smart computers lost in a world somewhere between human and machines. But in reality, AI is already in many of the tech devices we use every day.
AI - Ability - Machines - Data - Adapt
“AI is really the ability for machines to learn from data and adapt,” Naveen Rao, vice president and general manager of the Artificial Intelligence Products Group at Intel, told ABC News. “It’s much like any animal. If you want to teach your dog to rollover there’s a paradigm we use to do that.”
For example, it’s crucial for autonomous vehicles to adapt and become better drivers. To do that AI has to work in full gear. The vehicles have to follow commands, anticipate what other human drivers will do around them and react in real time. Autonomous vehicles should also learn from mistakes and improve their capabilities.
People - Journey - Lines - Problem - Lines
“When people first started this journey they thought it would be relatively easy, you just go and follow some lines, right? Turns out it’s a really hard problem because it’s more than just following lines,” said Rao. “You have to discern the intent of the other drivers, you have to watch out for pedestrians and kids to make a solution that you can really deploy.”
Companies, including Intel, are spending big bucks now to develop better AI. Home device makers want Alexa-like units to learn their human owners’ likes and dislikes. One day your oven might anticipate what you probably want for dinner and could get started on...
