TechInsights, the analytics and research firm founded by former Facebook employees, is putting out a report this week titled “When the Singularities are a Reality?”
TechInsight is taking a hard look at what it calls “the most compelling opportunities for the next decade.”
The company says it’s looking at a number of technologies that may help transform the world, including virtual reality, artificial intelligence, AI-powered healthcare, and artificial intelligence-powered health care.
There’s a lot of overlap between these three technologies, and TechInsings findings suggest there’s a huge opportunity for both.
There are lots of great ideas out there, and there’s some very interesting ideas coming out of AI and artificial learning right now, TechInsists CEO Ryan Bostrom tells VentureBeat.
But the company thinks there’s an opportunity to “transform the world for the first time in human history, by harnessing the power of a supercomputer.”
It’s an exciting time to be an entrepreneur, and we’re excited to see what new things the Singulities might bring to the table.
“The Singulity will be the catalyst for the exponential increase in innovation and disruption we see around us,” Bostom says.
But it won’t be easy.
The report makes a number recommendations to help companies find the best path forward.
For one thing, the company says, companies need to be more cautious in how they approach artificial intelligence.
AI systems need to take a longer time to mature, and the way that companies use AI to predict and predict outcomes should be a lot more nuanced.
The company also recommends that companies invest in their core team of researchers and designers to make sure their AI work gets funded and their systems are able to deliver on the promises.
Bostoms report also lays out a few guidelines for how companies should start planning for the Singules eventual arrival, which it says will likely occur around 2025.
The most important takeaway: The future is here, and it’s going to be great.
In short, don’t be afraid to go where the future is going, Bostomed says.
The article has been updated to clarify the company’s definition of the term “singularity.”
