With no doubt, AI has become one of those technologies that disrupt everything on their way. It has already solved the problems of such industries as healthcare, military, and finance. Though, there still exist the fields where AI can show its innovativeness and value.
The experts from Forbes has named 15 social-related problems that could be solved with the help of AI.
1. Wildlife Conservation
AI could track the movements of animals and birds. After processing and analyzing this data, it would be possible to identify the species and territories that are in danger the most.
Obviously, the technology eases the process of data gathering. This data would allow creating predictive models of how to increase life expectancy or enhance the level of healthcare service provided.
3. Interpersonal Conflicts
What is more important, AI could easily identify the moment of sparking a conflict, especially on the Internet. The technology could alert people of a conflict possibility.
4. Natural Disaster Prediction
Google is already using AI to predict floods with 75% precision. The system identifies the areas of risk and notifies people.
Discrimination in the workplace is still a sore subject for many regions of the world. AI could be helpful in terms of mitigating human bias. This could contribute to employees integration into a company. Basically, the system could create the lists of the candidates that meet the requirements in the stage of interviews. In other words, the HR department deals with already sorted candidates giving everyone a chance for getting a job.
6. Bullying and Abuse on the Internet
AI-bots are already embedded on the Internet scanning online-platforms. They identify bullying and abuse and delete such replies. In the nearest future, this process should be completely prevented.
AI could be a key to knowledge globalization. There are such fileds and topics that lack professional specialists due to lack of information. Providing such information in various languages could contribute to the spreading of information.
In addition, AI is already actively being used in agriculture. It predicts weather changes, monitors the condition of trees and plants, helps make animals happier. With the population growth, experts see the need for growing more healthy products with high efficiency and productivity. Probably, AI could be a good option for solving this problem.
9. Green Energy
AI creates solutions for producing green energy. But for predictive models, new unique solutions could have never appeared.
10. Personalized Self-Care
Laboratories could use AI to create new drugs. Not so long, an American biotechnology company Insilico Medicine announced a new AI algorithm GENTRL that can model and create drugs in just 21 days. According to the team, AI is 15 times faster than ordinary R&D methods.
Algorithms can detect fake content and misinformation. This will help create a reliable source of information on the Internet.
12. Mental Health
AI could be useful in analyzing mental problems. What is more important, it could create predictive models to analyze the roots of illness and try to prevent it.
13. Hunger and Poverty
Despite the fact that we live in the age of prosperity and growth, we still have to think about our future. AI algorithms could become our assistants in housekeeping to cut down on the food expenses. They could give advice on how much food to buy to have fewer wastes.
14. Density Management
AI together with IoT could help solve the problem of traffic jams, overpopulation in big cities and create better ways of infrastructure utilization. Moreover, by analyzing people’s behavior, algorithms could provide “convenient” examples of city infrastructure planning to create smart cities.
An AI-based feed could help increase the interest in education and provide a better user experience. AI could help get the highest productivity from the learning process by adapting the information flow to the need of a particular person.
