Optimizing A.I. For Use In Dynamic Environments
Artificial Intelligence is a field in which a massive number of advancements have been made in the last couple of decades. More and more services are anchored in artificial intelligence, in fields as varied as medicine to entertainment. The presence of Artificial Intelligence isn't always obvious and, in fact, is probably used in your life all the time without you even knowing it. Despite the history of advancements, A.I. still tends to work at its best when the variables at play are limited and easy to define. A.I. is excellent for learning game like formulas: situations with rules and a potentially large, but never endless, number of possibilities. However, the demand for A.I. is spreading drastically into fields that, by their nature, are much less regulated and far more ‘dynamic'. With this being said, here are some ways for the development of A.I. in dynamic, real-world situations.

SAIL-ON

DARPA's Science of Artificial Intelligence and Learning for Open-world Novelty program is designed specifically for the development and research of ways to cultivate the basis for A.I. systems which are able to react instinctively if the parameters of their tasks are altered part way through. It's the crucial piece of the puzzle to crack and, ironically, it is also a part of the long and inevitable path towards A.I. taking on increasingly human traits. The ability to act differently according to new data (in other words, to improvise) is a really crucial human ability which, for its use in increasingly dynamic environments, is massively important to figure out within the field of Artificial Intelligence and hopefully something that SAIL-ON can work to achieve.

Military Applications

The military is an area in which the potential for using A.I. is limitless. On the one hand, ideally no ‘mistakes' are made during military actions. "However, with A.I. in control, any errors in judgement are taken out of the hands of human beings, where culpability could be a very serious issue. Furthermore, A.I. removes the strong element of human error from a field in which ‘mistakes' can be costly, even potentially costing lives," says Randy M. May, big data writer at Assignment Help and Revieweal. However, military scenarios, particularly wars, are examples of extremely dynamic scenarios. You would be hard-pressed to find an environment as dynamic with stakes and consequences as potentially dramatic. So, military applications of dynamic A.I. are slow in development. ‘Variables' and fail-safes/reassurances are the key elements here when trying to optimize A.I. for this kind of environment. If it can be achieved the influence could be huge.

Internet of Things (IoT)

The IoT is a field in which much advancement has come in the last 5-10 years, parallel to the advancements formulated within A.I. The Internet of Things refers to the digitalization of previously analogue concepts, usually objects, or ‘things', which become ‘smart': connected to the internet, able to connect to other objects through their own network, remotely controllable and, crucially when it comes to A.I., able to gather data about usage and application(s) of the product itself. For example, smart lighting, where house lights are controllable through and app and can react to the time of day, the outside weather, or other factors input by human operators. "The dynamicity comes in the fact that the Internet of Things is designed to be used by consumers, whose tastes and applications alter over time and whose environments are potentially changing constantly. The data issue is an eternal issue when it comes to A.I.: with tightening restrictions on data management, a smart item having the capacity to gather data about its user doesn't mean that it will do that automatically," writes Joshua K. Fritz, a tech blogger at Dissertation Writing Service and Australianreviewer. But the data is what will allow the smart items to learn how to adapt its behavior in a dynamic way to suit its owners' habits and desires.

Conclusion

There are so many potential applications for A.I. that it's almost mind-boggling. However, A.I. is most exciting when it becomes able to regulate itself in a fluid and synergetic manner, reacting organically in a manner comparable to how an actual human being would react. Once this is mastered it will change the way we look at A.I. and its applications. Through work done by groups like SAIL-ON areas like military and user-oriented A.I. applications will blossom.
