By compiling the opinions of more than 3,000 researchers scattered across the globe, IBM has identified 5 predictions for artificial intelligence-related innovations that will change our lives. Firstly, the power of algorithms applied to speech will provide indicators of our mental health, says IBM. Hyperimaging will give us superhero vision, while macroscopes will help us understand the Earth’s complexity in infinite detail. Medical labs “on a chip” will serve as detectives to help trace disease at the nanoscale. And finally, smart sensors will detect environmental pollution at the speed of light.
