Artificial intelligence is already able to predict future events better and better

Although the AI ​​technologies used, inter alia,

in autonomous cars they can predict dangerous situations in which we will be involved on the road, but it only works for a few seconds ahead, while the AI ​​developed by scientists from Germany is great at predicting dangerous events that will occur even a few minutes ahead


Best of all, it can save our lives this way, or just make it easier, like the valets do. It sounds like a script from a good sci-fi movie, but it's already happening.


To make predictions at all, large amounts of data about our lifestyle and habits are needed. Scientists from the Institute of Computer Science developed a training software that was based on 40 different videos showing how to prepare a salad.

Each of the recordings lasted 6 minutes and showed 20 different actions.

The specialists were particularly interested in the start of each action and its duration. After several hours of analysis, the algorithm learned the sequence of actions.

For testing purposes, it was later checked on several other films that the system had not seen before. After only a dozen or so seconds of the film duration, the algorithm was supposed to predict what would happen next.

The predictions of AI took scientists by surprise.

The algorithm managed to predict activities at the level of 40 percent.

It's quite a lot.

Of course, the accuracy of forecasts decreased as the time of forecasting increased. Various companies have long relied on data collected about us by, for example, Google to predict the development of various important events.

This way, they can be one step ahead of the competition.

Such global awareness very often makes good forecasts, but it is still not perfect. In the future, when internet giants will have even more data about us, and this will be the case for the bank, such forecasts will be much more accurate.

This fact will completely change our everyday life.

Let it only serve us in a positive sense and not be used against us, e.g. by the services.
