How artificial intelligence could aid humanitarian efforts in future
AI began as something simple and now the technology can be found in many things that we use every single day. While many people think that AI can only be used to benefit consumers, it can also be used to aid humanitarian efforts in the future.
What Is AI?
AI is the simulation of human intelligence through machine learning. AI often uses machine vision and speech recognition to work in a way that we could have never imagined. AI is used in applications, robotics and more in 2020.
Natural disasters happen all the time and in many countries that are not built to support the kind of relief that is required. However, with the help of AI, it is expected that it can become easier to identify any damage and help workers to aid those in need much faster. This can shorten the time that those in need are left without assistance. This is certainly something to look forward to.
We all want to find a cure for diseases but doing so isn’t always easy. It can be hard to find the cure and it can be incredibly expensive trying to get the cure to those who need it most. In many third-world countries, the cure might exist but might not be accessible. However, with investments in AI by individuals like Tej Kohli and larger corporations such as IBM, we can get one step closer to making these treatments more accessible. In the case of Tej Kohli, he is campaigning for the end of corneal blindness. This is just the beginning for this kind of humanitarian work.
Finally, it is expected that artificial intelligence technology could help to predict any kind of humanitarian crisis in the future and help to prevent it from taking place. AI can look at the potential famines, migration patterns during conflicts and any epidemics that might be starting to spread. With the help of AI, those in charge can use the information to prepare for what is coming and reduce the damage that is done.
It is clear that AI is starting to really become something that we can rely on to help those in need. AI doesn’t need to just help us live a more convenient life with robotics, it can also help those who are experiencing a crisis in their country. We expect this kind of technology to help predict when something might go wrong and aid in finding the cures for some diseases. Hopefully, we can work together and use this technology as much as possible.
