Expert reveals top 5 predictions for AI’s evolution in 2024


In a sector that thrives on innovation, artificial intelligence (AI) has become a dominant force, especially with the advent of Generative AI (GenAI). The year 2023 marked a significant turning point, where the intricacies and dualities of AI technology became widely recognized and debated in the public domain and among experts in technology and policy.

Looking ahead to 2024, Aliya Grig, founder and CEO of Evolwe AI and the Kosmos Foundation, anticipates groundbreaking advancements in various AI domains:

AI-enhanced robotics with adaptive learning capabilities

In 2024, we anticipate major strides in robotics, driven by AI technologies like deep learning, reinforcement learning, and embodiment. Embodied AI refers to artificial intelligence that is integrated into physical bodies or robotic systems. It adapts to its environment by using perception algorithms and learning techniques to interact and respond to the stimuli in its surroundings, facilitating better understanding and navigation of the physical world. These intelligent robots will be equipped with advanced sensors and neural networks, allowing them to understand and interact with their environment in real-time. Enhanced with capabilities like machine vision and predictive analytics, they will be able to perform complex tasks such as autonomous navigation and real-time decision-making in industries like manufacturing, logistics, and mining. This represents a significant leap from traditional pre-programmed robots to those capable of continuous learning and adaptation.

Generative AI in material science, accelerating innovation

Generative AI’s role in material science will be defined by its use of deep learning models, such as Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) and Variational Autoencoders (VAEs). The expansion of generative AI technologies will aid in the creation of multimodal models by enabling the synthesis of diverse data types, such as text, images, and audio, resulting in more comprehensive and realistic representations of the real world. These AI models will be utilized for simulating and predicting the properties of new materials and drug compounds, vastly reducing the time and cost associated with traditional experimental methods. The integration of AI with quantum computing could further revolutionize this field by enabling the simulation of complex molecular structures and reactions at an unprecedented scale and speed. Furthermore, multimodal AI models can help in production by effectively integrating and analyzing data from multiple sources such as visual, textual, and sensory inputs, enabling better decision-making, product optimization, and process automation.

Progress towards Artificial Consciousness in AI models 

The quest for artificial consciousness in 2024 will focus on developing AI models that exhibit aspects of human-like cognition. This includes advancements in natural language processing (NLP), emotional intelligence (EI) algorithms, and theory of mind models. These AI systems will not only process vast amounts of data but also understand context, emotion, and social dynamics. The development of neuromorphic computing, which mimics the neural structure of the human brain, could play a pivotal role in this journey, offering new pathways to emulate aspects of consciousness.

Innovations in AI chip technology 

The evolution of AI chip technology will be a key area of focus, with developments in areas like Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), and Graphic Processing Units (GPUs). These chips will be optimized for specific AI tasks, offering greater efficiency and speed. The integration of advanced semiconductor materials like gallium nitride (GaN) and silicon carbide (SiC) may lead to chips with higher power efficiency and thermal management capabilities, crucial for supporting the intensive computational demands of advanced AI algorithms.

Developing frameworks for AI ethics and regulation

The realm of AI ethics and regulation in 2024 will likely involve the formulation of international standards and guidelines to govern AI development and application. This includes addressing issues related to data privacy, algorithmic bias, and accountability. The competitive nature of AI has led to concerns regarding security policies on the international arena. The implementation of explainable AI (XAI) systems, which provide transparency in AI decision-making processes, will be vital for building trust and understanding. Additionally, cross-sector collaborations among tech companies, governments, and ethical bodies will be essential for creating a global framework that ensures the responsible and equitable use of AI technologies.

As we embrace the potential transformations in AI in 2024, it is crucial to recognize that these technological leaps are not just about advancements in capabilities but also about the profound impact they will have on society, economy, and ethics. The integration of AI into our daily lives and industries will redefine the way we work, learn, and interact, presenting both unprecedented opportunities and complex challenges. It will be imperative for leaders, innovators, and policymakers to navigate this evolving landscape with a balanced approach, ensuring that while we harness the power of AI for progress and innovation, we also safeguard against its risks and maintain a commitment to ethical principles. The journey through 2024 and beyond will be as much about steering the technological prowess of AI as it is about shaping a future that aligns with our shared values and aspirations.
