The artificial intelligence revolution continues to shape our world, and 2024 promises to be a significant milestone in this technological advancement. In this article, we will explore the main trends that are shaping the AI landscape, as highlighted by experts and reliable sources, such as Estado de S. Paulo and Valor Econômico.
1. Pushing boundaries with massive data:
The massive collection and use of data has given artificial intelligence the ability to identify images, understand texts and optimize planning processes. In 2023, we saw the social impact of language models like GPT, which play a central role in impressive advances. We are witnessing not just machines that process data, but those that understand complex contexts and generate high-quality responses.
2. Anticipating phenomena with AI:
According to testimony from Fabio Cozman, director of the Artificial Intelligence Center at the University of São Paulo (USP), for theEstadão, AI is expanding into anticipating physical and social phenomena in diverse fields. From predicting storm surges to alert riverside populations to vaccination strategies based on SUS data, AI is demonstrating its versatility in solving real-world challenges.
3. New generation of efficient and connected models:
In 2024, we eagerly await a new generation of AI models, more energy efficient, with improved veracity guarantees and greater integration with auxiliary programs. These models promise greater ability to solve mathematical questions and interact in a more sophisticated way with other software.
4. Regulation and governance:
The European Union has already approved rules, and other countries are debating the regulation of AI. We anticipate advances in guidelines for assessing risks associated with artificial intelligence. Companies, aware of the social importance of their technologies, must dedicate themselves to certifying their AI as socially appropriate. Careful regulation is crucial, as banning technology can result in long-term economic and social disadvantages.
5. Challenges and opportunities in society:
According to theEconomic value, the coming months will reveal how society will face challenges arising from the adoption of AI, from employment and copyright issues to cybersecurity and privacy. The possibilities extend from innovative educational platforms to cancer diagnostic systems.
6. Regulation of AI in Brazil:
On the national scene, the debate on specific regulations, such as those of the Central Bank and the Securities and Exchange Commission, gains prominence. Banks and fintechs argue that regulatory structures already exist, while algorithms leave laboratories to interact directly with customers, offering services such as alerts about fines and proposals to replace inefficient insurance.
7. Multidimensional interactivity:
The future of AI involves the dissemination of models capable of processing a variety of inputs, including text, audio, images and videos. By enriching the context with more comprehensive information, AI models have the potential to significantly improve their responses, making them increasingly assertive.
In short, 2024 presents itself as a year of exponential advances in artificial intelligence, bringing with it exciting challenges and innovative opportunities. As we adapt to this constantly evolving landscape, education becomes key to preparing the professionals of the future. “Without a doubt, we are facing a scenario that demands not only adaptation, but leadership. AtMUST University, we are committed to empowering our students with knowledge that transcends traditional borders, preparing them to brave the challenges and embrace the opportunities that artificial intelligence holds for us”, highlights Giulianna Carbonari Meneghello, president of the institution.
