The worlds of data science, artificial intelligence and machine learning are moving so fast that it can make your head spin. The fascinating 2018 Tech Trends Report from the Future Today Institute was just released at SXSW and does a great job of outlining a range of technology trends.
Some of the trends listed above weren’t even on our radar — like WiFi tracking, a fascinating and potentially scary capability. Researchers at MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital are using advanced AI algorithms to analyze radio signals bouncing off us and onto other objects to track our physical movements, even through walls. They’re also using a related technology to detect our emotional state without disturbing the person being monitored.
Here’s a quick glimpse into the trends in the area of artificial intelligence in the report:AI Trends in the Enterprise
