Living on AI, Present and Future

Release Date:2021-11-30  Author:By Wang Xinhui  Click:

At the AI for Good Global Summit webinar held in September, Wang Xinhui, General Manager of Wireless Standardization and Industrial Relations, ZTE, talks about how AI+ is shaping today's society and four evolution trends in AI.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a new technological science that studies and develops theories, methods, technologies, and application systems used to simulate, extend, and expand human intelligence. With the further development of artificial intelligence science and the deepening of the simulation of human consciousness and thinking information process, artificial intelligence has received more and more attention in various fields, and is gradually applied to industries such as robotics, medical treatment, manufacturing, environmental protection, and network construction. It's so charming and disruptive that it has become a hot spot pursued by global technology companies. Furthermore, with the development of science and technology, artificial intelligence will sparkle in more and more aspects of human life.

Nowadays, a wave of digital transformation has swept over all walks of life around the world. Realizing business optimization, industrial upgrading, and value creation by embracing emerging information technology has become the common vision of enterprises. In this process, the potential of artificial intelligence, as a key enabling technology, is being uncovered in terms of computing power, algorithms, or data. Now, what are the successful landing cases? In the future, what new possibilities will it bring?

Capturing Present
Artificial intelligence has penetrated all aspects of today's society, and "AI+" is unknowingly subverting traditional industries and changing people's lifestyles.
Artificial Intelligence + Medical
The outbreak of COVID-19 has attracted widespread attention in the medical industry. It is worth mentioning that the increasingly mature artificial intelligence has played a great role in the fight against the epidemic. Telemedicine, intelligent imaging, medical robots, and pathology-assisted diagnosis have all shined in this epidemic. In the prevention and control stage of COVID-19, an organization has also proposed a set of machine learning algorithms that can identify the "asymptomatic infections" and "super spreaders" of the population who are most likely to be COVID-19 patients, for the prevention and control of the epidemic. 
Artificial Intelligence + Manufacturing
More and more data shows that the future market prospect of artificial intelligence is very impressive, and it also creates more new opportunities for the development of intelligent manufacturing. ZTE's Nanjing Binjiang 5G Intelligent Manufacturing Base focuses on the needs of smart factory digital production lines, automated testing and real-time data interaction, and implements the concept of "manufacturing 5G with 5G".
Artificial Intelligence + Environmental Protection
For low-efficiency, high-cost, and high-risk environmental protection work, artificial intelligence can replace manual operations. In addition, artificial intelligence technology and products can assist people in the prevention of environmental pollution and destruction.
Artificial Intelligence + 5G
With the commercialization of 5G, communication network operations are facing huge challenges. Traditional operation and maintenance management methods are difficult to adapt to the unprecedented huge network scale, complex network structure, and surge of network traffic of 5G. The use of artificial intelligence can enable the network to achieve high efficiency of operation and maintenance, predictability of traffic, and precision of marketing.

Trends of Artificial Intelligence
Following the two climaxes of artificial intelligence development in the 20th century, deep learning has set off the third wave of artificial intelligence with its outstanding performance in automatic feature extraction. Since the beginning of 2006, deep learning has made great breakthroughs in voice and vision recognition capabilities from its budding to maturity. A new technological breakthrough with a cycle of about 20 years has been gestating.
Four trends are becoming more and more obvious, according to the development process of artificial intelligence technology.
Accelerated integration of artificial intelligence and industry: The application of artificial intelligence in industry is generally in its infancy, and there are still some difficulties that hinder the implementation of application scenarios. Therefore, artificial intelligence must be closely integrated with the industry, not only to promote the implementation of artificial intelligence application scenarios, but also to push forward the breakthrough innovations in basic data and platform technology, and to build a bridge that effectively connects with the traditional industry ecology.
AI technology research: in-depth details: At present, the new generation of artificial intelligence has gradually shifted from the initial algorithm drive to the compound drive of data, algorithm and computing power. Among them, the driving role of data-based applications has become increasingly prominent.
A closed loop without human intervention: Today's artificial intelligence is not an automatic and complete closed-loop system. After outputting wrong results, it cannot self-correct and immediately achieve better output. Instead, scientists need to retrain on better training datasets to achieve better results. The closed loop without human intervention will be an important goal for the development of artificial intelligence technology.
Trusted AI: In order to prevent artificial intelligence from being misused and abused, on the one hand, it is necessary to address the symptoms from different levels such as laws and regulations, ethical norms, and industry consensus, but also to address the root cause from the level of technological innovation. Therefore, it will be more and more important to embed ethics and governance in the entire life cycle of artificial intelligence product design, research, development, deployment, and use.

Imaging Future
It is foreseeable that artificial intelligence will continue to learn and advance with the times. What will happen in the future? There is no doubt that all aspects of our travel, medical care, and production will be further upgraded due to artificial intelligence.
Perhaps dealing with robots will become our daily routine, perhaps brain-computer interfaces will come true, helping people with disabilities to restore their lives and communication skills, perhaps artificial intelligence will make them more creative, free humans from complicated tasks, and even replace humans in most jobs. The technological development of artificial intelligence will go hand in hand with the digitization and intelligent upgrading of the industry, building a future with unlimited possibilities.
