Forecast 2021: Artificial Intelligence during COVID and beyond
Jan 5, 2021
"We've been talking about AI for years as an emerging technology," says Ayanna Howard, a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. "But with increased scrutiny placed on its use in applications that may impact our daily lives and civil liberties, we are now seeing an increased focus on accountability. Thus, I think one of the most important technologies in 2021 will be AI – rather, the ethical use of AI. AI is not just an application, as its algorithms feed into most of the other technologies we will continue to use, whether that's entertainment, 3D design, or even shopping chatbots."
