Addressing the most common fears regarding the subject

Artificial intelligence is one of the most interesting, most promising, and most feared emerging technologies as of today. Personally, I think that it has a very high potential, but it will take time to develop advanced AI. For now, all we get is robots that can play flappy bird and suggest ads (please note that this is an exaggeration).

“AI will take over the world” 🌎

There are two ways to interpret the phrase “AI will take over the world!”. One way is to acknowledge that AI is an emerging technology with the potential to provide huge benefits to businesses worldwide and streamline ineffective processes. The other way is to imagine robots coming to life and destroying the entire human race. …


Quarantine, am I right?


An overview of the multiple projects that I’ve had the opportunity to participate in, and what I’ve learned from my experience.

Intro

As you may or may not know, I have had the opportunity to partake in a program called “The Knowledge Society”. If you haven’t heard of it, it is an accelerator program that introduces students to emerging technologies, real-world challenges, unique opportunities and more. Another main part of TKS is embracing mindsets and developing life skills. You can learn more about TKS here.


Electric flight has been an aspiration for a long time and is just now becoming a reality. However, there are still limiting factors that are slowing the growth of this technology. In this article, I will explore the idea of combining nanotechnology and flight.

sigh… someday

I’m sure you’ve all seen it: visions of the future where flying cars and robot assistants are common luxuries. Yet, how close are we to this becoming a reality? We are definitely making strides in the right direction, with artificial intelligence emerging rapidly and companies like Kitty Hawk and AeroMobil currently developing and even testing flying cars. However, there are limiting factors preventing us from reaching this imagined future: politics, global problems, but most of all, the limitations of our technology today. Hey, I’m not saying that the iPhone X and Alexa are primitive, what I’m saying is that there is a large gap between what we imagine in the future and what we have today. …

This is the future of AVs… or is it?

Machines are becoming more and more prominent in our lives as time moves on. As this happens, many companies are attempting to make fully autonomous cars 🚗. One of the main goals of autonomous vehicles is to optimize road travel, effectively eliminating human error. Many people visualize the future road system to be similar to the gif above, since the cars can communicate with each other at incredulous speeds 💨. However, this would require all cars on the road to be autonomous. So, here’s my question: how well will self-driving cars fit in with our current road system?


What advances have been made? How close are we to commercial delivery?

One day, drone delivery will be fully implemented in an urban area. The question is, “When?”. However, before determining that, other questions must be answered.


Where would artificial intelligence have the most benefits?

Artificial intelligence is one of the most promising technology today, partly because it can be implemented almost anywhere. However, there is controversy and paranoia around the subject. So before getting into the use cases, the basics must be described.

  • Supervised learning: All data is labelled and the algorithms learn to predict the output from the input data. …


You wake up on a Monday and realize that you slept in. You can still make it to work, but driving would make you late. So instead, you board a capsule and get shot through a vacuum tube at 1200km/h, making it just in time and looking like a boss.

Transportation is constantly evolving. This is because as time passes, some methods of transport become prevalent depending on people’s needs. Today, It is safe to say that on-road transportation (specifically cars) is the most used form of transportation (unless you’re playing Minecraft in creative mode), but other forms are also becoming more efficient as time passes. So, my question is: what will the next most effective method of transportation be?


Why true independence is nearly impossible to achieve

Ever since humanity began, we have wanted to separate ourselves from each other; to prove that we are unique. Whether it was by creating different tribes, doing tasks alone, etc, people like to prove that they are capable.
