From Agriculture to Art — the A.I. Wave Sweeps In
AI has many uses, such as predicting an outcome to identifying patterns. Most of the AI uses right now are predictions, such as what ads to show you, and product recommendations. However, as the AI technology matures, virtually any field can benefit from AI. For example, Deep Genomes is a company that is aimed to transform the economics of drug recovery. Currently, it takes years and billions of dollars to introduce a new product because of clinical trials on humans. With AI technology, it can potentially reduce the cost and time tremendously by predicting how the drug will react in humans. Aside from clinical trials, AI is also being used in agriculture. The AI assistant called Nuru is an app that can be used by farmers to identify disease or pest blight. Simply wave the phone over a plant leaf, and the AI can show the diagnoses as well as generating low tech treatments.
