Thought I would start this thread on AI, there is an upcoming Microsoft Event Future Decoded which will explore some of the fields and interesting questions arsing -31 October to 1 November which will be streamed live if interested in any of it More details here https://www.futuredecoded.com/content/live Information from the 2017 event also available https://news.microsoft.com/en-gb/2017/10/31/future-decoded-2017, also short video Decoded 2017 Highlights
I'll also include work Samsung has been doing in this area with some details from the AI forum in September https://news.samsung.com/global/samsung-ai-forum-offers-a-roadmap-for-the-future-of-ai https://research.samsung.com/artificial-intelligence
With regard to the latest recent developments would say areas that have most caught my attention are Virtual Agents, Automated Hardware, Optimised Hardware, Biometrics (which can creat emore natural interactions between touch, speech and body reactions) Robotic processes, Digital Twin Modelling, Cyber Defences, Empowering Workers (despite risks in some area of undoubted benefit in medical and legal circles). Undoubtably potential benefits which will assist us all in daily life. some more detail https://blog.adext.com/en/artificial-intelligence-technologies-2018 Much scope with Content Creation (for instance one tool Wibbitz can quickly create content from written documentation). Emotion Recognition is certainly an interesting concept which can have application in the entertainment and business arenas. We are all familiar with voice recognition but continually advancing. Detail of 14 applications, some will be more familiar than others. https://blog.adext.com/en/applications-of-artificial-intelligence

An interesting article here with arguments around fearing or embracing the increased use of AI. There are those who believe the technology could become too powerful without safeguards and regulation. Advocates argue that the technology enables us to live more fulfilling lives and offers great advances in the field of medicine for instance. The point is also made that there have always been sceptics with any kind of technology and the risks have often been overplayed. Of course some will not be firmly in either camp as the argument can be more nuanced and I think it possible to experience significant benefits from AI whilst being aware of the pitfalls and fully considering the ethics. Throughout the world though approaches will differ and we will see positive and negative examples.
There is an app Hyfe which can track users Coughing habits and there is a diagnostics tool to help users identify underlying illnesses and even help curb the spread of coronavirus. Only recently heard about this and not sure how effective it would be, some have talked about privacy concerns. https://www.hyfeapp.com/ https://pharmaphorum.com/news/covid-cough-app-hyfe-launches-in-uk-and-ireland/
one of main benefits of course is in enhancing automation and enabling employees to concentrate on other skill sets,though some roles will be displaced . The technology is also readily available,see more examples here:https://interestingengineering.com/7-ways-ai-will-help-humanity-not-harm-it
On the other hand a recent Panorama focused on how the rise of the technology (whilst bringing big gains) could create an armed race between China and the US and that regulation would be urgently need to stop things getting out of control. China has vowed to become an AI superpower by 2030.
