The progress of technology over the years is finding fructification in it’s limitless usage for progress & development. It has the potential to usher in ease of living and of business to unimaginable levels. Sci – Fi of earlier years, looks puny given the humungous nature of present developments, spanning across sectors and different dimensions of human living. Starting from neural networks today AI reaching a stage where a new AI- enabled tool will translate thoughts directly into speech. The age of man machine synthesis is about to begin.

Recent study by Columbia University shows that by monitoring brain activity by an AI – enabled technology tool, it would be possible to reconstruct what the individual hears with unprecedented charity. This is the opening of completely new vistas of knowledge and research. This in simple terms, means translating brain signals into intelligible speech. It would help all those who cannot speak and can now communicate to the outside world in a completely different method of communication. Though in the nascent stage, it is a clear proof of concept.

With the likelihood of Waymo becoming a commercial possibility very shortly, it’s promise would become synonymous with the rise and growth of autonomous vehicles. This would push tech companies in this field for even more vigorous efforts to deliver competing products, spreading horizontal reach. Undeniably, these vehicles will turn out to be the future of mankind. It has reached a stage, where human effort can make a success out of it.

Notwithstanding these huge strides, it is Open AI, which is giving a major new trajectory, because algorithms usually operate independently. According to the researchers at Open AI, “this is a step towards building AI systems which accomplish well – defined goals in messy, complicated situations involving real humans.” The string of AI achievements is already commendable; like creating artwork, writing literature, predicting earthquakes and anticipating patients coming out of coma, super intelligence seems more like a question of “when” than “if.”
