The biggest AI trends to watch in 2021

New Year is here again, and like every year, more changes to our lives through technology. AI and Machine Learning has been showing promising trends as part of our daily lives like never before. I believe we will witness the transforming of AI technology with unique platforms and tools that utilize AI to a great extent this year. So this is the right time for you to get updated on what those AI implementations are. The very first trend to watch is called the “Internet of Behavior” tool used to track, as mentioned in the title, behavior of the internet. We might be familiar with this kind of technology in many platforms in capturing the behavior of people in daily lives. Especially this year that we’re still in the wake of Covid-19, the use of behavior tracking is vital to help slow down the spread of the virus, using surveillance cameras to monitor whether people follow Covid-19 health protocols or not. Also to detect fever through thermal cameras. The ongoing pandemic will not end anytime soon, so this type of technology will have the growing availability to develop more in 2021. The next technology to be aware of is AI in Cyber Security, we hear a lot of borderless connectivity,wireless access of the internet on Cloud Computing, and remote work; a new work style many companies are now adapting. The thing is, there are not enough security systems that can keep track of all the confidential information related to work and it can be threatened by Ransomware. Consequently, AI will help in collecting information in the organization, detecting the wrong doing activities where there will also be Cyber Security Mesh, which involves implementing an IT security infrastructure that does not focus on just a single perimeter around all devices or nodes of an IT network, but instead establishes smaller, individual perimeters around each access point, which will allow employees to work anywhere they prefer. Another top technology is the combination of end-to-end automation accomplished by harnessing the power of multiple technologies that we call Hyperautomation, it is the adaption of the 2 technologies; Robotic Process Automation where it will perform the repetitive task like information filling, and Machine Learning will develop the software to perform more advanced tasks. If the use of Hyperautomation becomes 100% accurate, it will help a lot of tasks in the organization that many companies might have to consider reducing man power in their workplace. The last trend is to raise AI ethical reflections, as technology is rapidly developing, we have seen it can be a double-edged sword. From issues of the act of faking content, image, video or voice in Deepfake, or who is the responsible party when AI performs the wrongdoing tasks or the violation of personal rights from AI or even the discussion of AI taking over human jobs. So, considering AI Ethics as part of using AI, is something we will have to take to the next level. And there you have it, 4 top trends of AI to look into in 2021. We need to continue to stay updated and ahead of the change in technology trends. . We, as humans, have the capability to adapt to the change occurring and able to learn new things everyday. I believe that to be mindful of technology will encompass one's ability to recognize and understand the usefulness of any such technology for future success.
