A.I. Is Everywhere and Evolving
Many of us already live with artificial intelligence now, but researchers say interactions with the technology will become increasingly personalized.
But, while we’ve seen the A.I. sun, we have yet to see it truly shine.
These are early efforts, achieved by feeding millions of songs into networks of artificial neurons, made from strings of computer code, until they internalize patterns of melody and harmony, and can recreate the sound of instruments and voices.
Researchers are working on combining the technologies to create realistic 2D avatars of people who can interact in real time, showing emotion and making context-relevant gestures. A Samsung-associated company called Neon has introduced an early version of such avatars, though the technology has a long way to go before it is practical to use.
“I can imagine people like my mom creating software,” he said, “even though she can’t write a line of code.”
