The terms “automation” and “artificial intelligence” or “AI” are cropping up everywhere today, both in people’s personal and professional lives. It may be tempting to just gloss over them, and let “the tech guys” take care of them.
But the reality is: It’s not just an IT thing anymore. Continuing breakthroughs and innovations in these areas are fast becoming integrated into virtually every aspect of life. Automation and AI will continue to shape technology across all industries, point toward more capable systems, and drive companies and individuals around the world.
To keep your business, and yourself, in the knowledge loop, be familiar with today’s top automation and AI trends, starting with these four:
Trends in Automation/AI You Should Note
Digital Twins Driving the Metaverse
Recent developments have included leading industrial design and AI vendors connecting digital twins – virtual models that simulate reality – with the metaverse. Digital twins have been activated across all industrial sectors during the past few years, and experts see this pattern continuing.
- Digital twins have increased in complexity. They model human behavior and continue to provide businesses with new ways to leverage and forecast data. New pilots are being adopted daily.
Democrotization: Low Code or No-Code AI
The low-code/no-code trend in website and app development is expected to carry over to AI, allowing organizations to make use of pre-built templates and drag-and-drop methods. This will enable AI integration into existing workflows to occur and scale at a faster pace.
- Low code/no code AI can be used to automate such repetitive tasks as invoicing, form completion, and contact validation. Going forward, businesses will also be able to program AI tools for data analysis of current processes, as well as visualization of future performance.
Greater Focus on Ethics and Regulation
The benefits of automation and AI are seemingly limitless – but the potential risks of misuse are a valid cause for concern. This being said, there will be an increased focus on ethics and regulations during the remainder of 2023 and beyond. Watch for related legislation. For instance, already underway are the following:
- New York City’s Local Law 144 requires employers to meet bias audit requirements before using automated tools to evaluate job applicants.
- The AI Act will serve as a counterpart to the General Data Protection Regulation.
More Sophisticated Cybersecurity
Going forward, AI and automation will play a growing role in detecting and responding to cybersecurity threats. Increasingly, businesses will use AI to proactively and defensively detect anomalous behavior or new attack patterns. AI-supported programs are generally more capable of managing multi-faceted risks through improved detection, agility, and resilience.
