AI and Quantum Computers Influence

AI as we know are here, but for one mere robot to look and live among us is another. I just find it weird to have a robot that has become a citizen of Saudi Arabia to be comfortable for everyone. How could it be that their technology advancements has lead to Sophia the robot with being a citizen that has been checked for all flaws so quickly. Their is a long way to go with AI and quantum computing but each and every technological company around the world wants to be the one to make the breakthrough first; rather then making a strategic plan to make sure these computers are ready to go into the world. Sophia the robot is not only intelligent in numerous areas, but is also capable of emotion, facial expressions. Sophia the robot is a self learning machine and if this is not enough to creep you out I don’t know what is. We have just given the foundation of computational research a human platform with a human identity to live with us. However, what does this mean moving forward for our world with robots leaving in it. Does this make humanity safe with them, what problems does this solve? I just think it is to soon to release something into the world knowing their are complications that can arise but as always is taking into effect later. What will a typical day look like for an AI living a human life will they have a profession in a desired career path, will they have an income, or would they have a household as well. Having Sophia declared as an citizen means where actually moving way faster than expected and with one robot already living like an human what will the future look like.

Quantum Computers is surely coming up faster than we know too because every company wants to be the first to announce an actual working quantum machine. Quantum computing is set to take over the world and become the master mind behind everything. Microsoft has made a breakthrough into general quantum computing moving them closer to the answers how to master the quantum computers. Microsoft plans to build a quantum computing ecosystem that is based on Freedman’s field of math and branch of physics seemingly mystical its early pioneers invoked philosophy and spirituality. Microsoft experts believe quantum computing innumerable practical benefits.That allows scientists to do computations in minutes or hours that would take a lifetime of the universe on even most advanced even most classical computers we use today. Microsoft has the same views as any company about what we will expect to have accomplished if these computers are online and fully functional. Quantum computing has some time to go before being released into society because their is only one shot you get to impress the world with a computer that can manipulate human intelligence and current data to make it into something new. Moreover, quantum computing can be a good thing with good intentions for humanity depending on the nature of its use or purpose to help the economy become stronger. As well as making significant changes the world making it a better place for everyone.

Why Technology Companies Lead Digital Transformation

In prior blog posts, I have discussed how the growth of technology companies have disrupted companies in almost every field. Existing companies are now forced to improve their products and compete with the innovative products/services of technology companies.

Platform companies all started out simple, Amazon wanted to sell books on the web, Google was just a search engine, but instead they expanded way beyond what they started out as and integrated themselves into everything we do in our daily lives. Now of days, technology is almost always necessary in everything we do, we use it for a number of reasons including: to check in on our health, view our mail, and retrieve information.

These technology companies did not all plan to be so successful, but there are a number of factors that have led them to this point. One reason why these companies are so successful is because they are leaders in Artificial Intelligence Technologies. Notably, these technology companies are large spenders in AI, and globally, existing companies have followed their trend as well (as shown in the chart below).

Overtime, humans have become much more attracted to AI technologies. More often, these technologies make experiences for the customer simpler, so customers continue using their technologies. For example, tech companies have a great lead in voice recognition technologies and is now becoming a technology that is commonly used. In the chart below, it is evident that overtime more and more people will be accustomed to voice recognition technologies.

Even incorporating voice recognition technology into customer support calls can make companies much more efficient. Voice recognition technologies are a beneficial technology to incorporate into a digital company, it serves as a useful tool to customers.

However, the problem for many existing companies is that they did not start out as technology companies so making this shift is more complex than traditional. It requires ‘exponential‘ thinking for a shift as such; thinking outside the box. If companies want to succeed in transforming their businesses digitally, they must come up with new ideas in order to grow. Following the same routine over and over will not change results, companies must learn to adapt to their markets.

Babe Ruth once said “It’s hard to beat a person that never gives up”, and the technology companies do not give up. Existing companies have not changed their agendas for years and technology companies have given them a wake up call. Technology companies are successful because of their drive to bring new and creative products/services to the market. In order for a company to be successful in the 21st century, they must adapt to changing markets.
