Yes, AI has come a long way, and many awesome things have been done recently. Many recent advancements have given very useful applications. Context-aware assistants, image and video interpretation, and Deep Learning for capturing very complex structures.
Still, there are many things remaining on the to-do list before AI is here. Here’s my list of what we need to do as our next step:
Transparent AI decisions.
Artificial General Intelligence.
Learning from smaller data sets. One-shot learning.
Edge AI. Scalability. Energy.
Safety. Bias. Ethics.
I think many agree on this list.
AI researchers at University of Skövde are now putting together a large research application for a research program in “Thrustworthy AI”, worth 100+ MSEK, which will run over 8 years. We are fortunate to have many company partners that have signed up preliminary with us.
I’m really seeing forward to work with this from 2021.
