It’s pretty crazy to think about, but it seems quite likely that narrow, applied AI has really come into its own recently. Personally I’m looking forward to more semi-autonomous cars—and expecting less collisions!
By the holidays next year, you will either be shuttled in an auto piloted car or you’ll be sharing the road with one. Either way, very few drivers in the Western world will be able to change lanes in 2016 without considering that the agent operating the vehicle next to them may not be human. The experience might be subtle, but the reality is enough to give us all pause at the shift in our technological environment.
