When does the next big tech trend start to really make an impact on the way we think about the future?
With AI making strides in both areas, we’re about to find out.
Read moreWhat AI does to our lives is a topic of constant debate, but the question of when AI will take a prominent role in the way our lives are run is more controversial than ever.
While it is generally accepted that AI will begin to dominate our lives by 2025, it is also believed that we will see AI impact our personal lives more in the coming years.
For example, according to the UK government, by 2045 there will be 10 million people aged over 50 who will be diagnosed with dementia, with the number of elderly people in the UK set to double by the same year.
In 2017, the European Union published a draft roadmap for AI that proposes that by 2025 we will be living in a world where AI will be able to do more than perform basic tasks, such as helping us navigate our personal data.
“By 2030 we will need to be able do more,” the roadmap states, which is a reference to the fact that the AI could be able “understand, predict and react to our needs” and even “create new products”.
“By 2045, we will have achieved a degree of autonomy and control we would not have had in the past.”
This means that, for example, if we were to want to take a shower or go out for a walk, AI could do the job for us, rather than having to rely on human intervention, according the roadmap.
According to AI expert and futurist Vinay Gupta, this is the “gold standard” for AI to be the “most powerful AI in our lifetimes”, which will be something that “will be a game changer”.
“We will be so much better at understanding and predicting our needs than any human is at, so that we can tailor our life to meet those needs,” Gupta told Next Big Minds in an interview.
“In the next ten years, we’ll be living with AI that is able to predict our needs, to make our life better, to be smarter about things, and to provide for us.”
And by the time we’re 2045 we’ll have achieved that kind of autonomy.
And the result will be a world that is much better for everyone.
“The roadmap is a big step forward for AI, but what it really means is that AI is likely to get smarter by 2040.
In its 2017 update to the roadmap, the EU also said that by 2060, there will likely be a “broad range of advanced artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities”, which could be used to help people in “all areas of our lives, including healthcare, education, healthcare delivery, travel, communication, financial and social, physical and social activities, as well as for public administration, law enforcement and military, as we transition to a 21st century world”.
But this is not to say that we won’t see AI-powered personal assistants come into the fold, but only in the future.
In the UK, AI has already started to play a role in healthcare and is already being used in some parts of the UK’s public services, such a care home where staff have been trained to use a robot called Aiden.
According To the UK Health Service (UKHS), the robot is a “learning machine”, meaning it is able “to learn from its experience” and “undergo tasks it has not previously been able to perform”.
The UKHS says that this is due to the robot being “trained on its own”.
However, it could also be used in the NHS to help staff and patients, for instance by providing an information service, as demonstrated by the NHS Digital NHS.
In addition to these new developments, the UKHS is also planning to introduce a new service called Smart Assistants, which will help people with dementia or Alzheimer’s to communicate and interact with their environment.
The service will use AI to create new forms of interaction between patients and healthcare workers, and will also provide “help with basic tasks such as dressing up, toileting, eating and bathing”.
However the UK HS warns that this service is “still very early days”.”
This service is still very early, it has a limited range of capabilities and is not yet capable of providing much meaningful assistance, and it is likely that we may see some limitations in the services that it can provide,” it said.”
If it is not capable of such capabilities in the near future, it will have limited impact on people with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

The US, UK and Australia all have plans to create a new AI-enabled service called the AI Health, Education and Welfare System (AIHES), which will “provide an interface for people with the cognitive and learning
