Bernard Marr, author of the books 'The Intelligence Revolution' and 'Artificial Intelligence in Practice' has compiled his list of the biggest AI trends in 2022. In this 7-minute video, he speaks about the following trends:
- AI will augment our workforce
- Better language modeling capability
- Cyber security
- AI and the Metaverse
- Low-code and no-code AI
- Data-centric AI
- Autonomous vehicles
- Creative AI
What is your opinion? Which of these trends affect you in your work and personally?
Here is the video:
@MarkusK. The video contains a well summary that highlights on latest AI trends.
I am glad you like it.
Great post and awesome video.
But he is not talking about the ethic of AI. Is he writing about it in his books? Do you know
That’s a good point
@ilias. I haven’t read the books yet but I found out chapter 9 of his book ‘The Intelligence Revolution’ is titled ‘The need for ethics, trust, and transparency.
The other book has a chapter called ‘Use Artificial Intelligence Ethically’
That’s great to know. I think that ethic is crucial for the usage of AI.
“It has been suggested that humanity’s future existence may depend on the implementation of solid moral standards in AI systems, given the possibility that these systems may, at some point, either match or supersede human capabilities (see section 2.g.). This point in time was called ‘technological singularity’ by Vernon Vinge in 1983 (see also: Vinge 1993; Kurzweil 2005; Chalmers 2010). The famous playwright Karl Čapek (1920), the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking and the influential philosopher Nick Bostrom (2016, 2018) have all warned about the possible dangers of technological singularity should intelligent machines turn against their creators, that is, human beings. Therefore, according to Nick Bostrom, it is of utmost importance to build friendly AI (see the alignment problem, discussed in section 2.g.).
In conclusion, the implementation of ethics is crucial for AI systems for multiple reasons: to provide safety guidelines that can prevent existential risks for humanity, to solve any issues related to bias, to build friendly AI systems that will adopt our ethical standards, and to help humanity flourish.”
So, have we reached the era to discuss the Skynet scenario?
Furthermore: How can each and every single individual who uses AI be controlled? How can each creator, be it an individual, an organization, or a government be controlled on the practice of ethics?
AI has already reached an amazing level and sometimes I feel like we can see machines having an artificial imagination that is wilder than the human mind’s. For example, let’s have a look at a couple of Midjourney images:

So, I cannot help but to be astonished and stand in awe!
So many questions come up to my mind, like “could this be the end of human art?” and many more, but let’s stick to the ethics part for now and how can humanity be reassured that all of this power will remain in control and used by responsible hands?
