Artificial Intelligence (AI) is impacting our lives more than ever before. AI powers many products we use daily, and 2022 has seen a surge in investment in AI-related companies. To understand the current state of AI, it is essential to look at some of the biggest trends that have emerged this year. Part 1 of this blog post will provide an overview of some key areas where AI is being applied, including Natural Language Processing (NLP), content moderation, deep fakes, synthetic data, and others.
Natural Language Processing (NLP) Models Are Getting Bigger and Better
The success of NLP models depends largely on their size and accuracy. As such, many tech companies are looking to make larger and better models that can not only process large amounts of text but also accurately interpret it to provide useful insights or recommendations. In 2022, AIOps vendors – companies that use machine learning algorithms to automate IT operations- have become increasingly popular as they reduce costs while providing accurate results with minimal human involvement. Additionally, many companies are now integrating no-code features into their platforms to make them more accessible for those without coding experience.
Online Worlds and Games Spurring Need for New AI Content Moderation Tools
As online worlds and games become more popular, there is an increased need for new AI content moderation tools to monitor toxic and hateful behavior. Companies like Facebook have been using AI solutions to identify hate speech for several years. Still, this year has seen an uptick in developing new tools designed specifically for gaming platforms to flag inappropriate comments or conduct from players. These tools can help keep player communities safe while allowing platform owners to take appropriate action against violators quickly and efficiently.
Deepfakes Are Becoming More Prevalent in Mainstream Media And Politics
Deepfakes are computer-generated videos or images that can be used maliciously or as part of entertainment content. In 2021, deep fake usage surged both in mainstream media and politics as they became increasingly realistic and difficult to detect with traditional methods. As a result, there has been a rise in the popularity of deep fake detection technologies, which use sophisticated algorithms to determine whether an image or video has been subject to manipulation or not.
Finally, synthetic data is becoming increasingly popular as companies look for ways to comply with data privacy laws like GDPR without sacrificing the quality of their training datasets. Synthetic data is artificially generated data created using algorithms that mimic real-world data points without compromising confidentiality or security, as it does not contain personal information about individuals in the dataset. Healthcare providers, telecommunications networks, financial institutions—all sorts of businesses across industries—are turning towards synthetic data generation techniques to ensure compliance with these new regulations while still maintaining high-quality datasets for model training purposes.
Artificial Intelligence continues its march forward into all aspects of our lives at an accelerated pace this year. From advances in NLP models allowing them to handle larger volumes of text better than ever before; applications such as content moderation improving user experience on virtual worlds; deep fakes becoming increasingly prevalent; right down to synthetic data providing businesses with reliable datasets while making sure they comply with regulations – there’s no denying how far we’ve come technologically! With so much potential for Artificial Intelligence over the coming months and years ahead, we’re certain this technology will continue its march forward into our lives.
