Moore’s Law, a computing term from the ‘70s, states that computing power doubles approximately every 2 years. Since the origin of this law, the changes in computers’ power and capabilities are staggering, and they’re not about to stop. As a result of these advances in computer power, AI has been able to evolve, leading to new developments in society and technology.

Calibrating Cryptocurrency Market

Currency has been around for thousands of years, and the drive to obtain more has propelled society, resulting in innovation, cultural revolutions, and wars. Now, a new type has emerged and opened more avenues for at least innovation if not revolution. Cryptocurrency is a high-tech exchange that has highs and lows, replicating the same pitfalls and opportunities as cash currency. To manage the rapid rise and fall of prices, developers turned their sights to AI. In what way could AI affect this market?

As more predictive capabilities of AI were refined, research into these algorithms revealed that such a program could manage the chaos and find patterns within it. Developers leveraged AI, and programs emerged that navigate through the muddy playing field of the market. The result is High Speed Trade (HST) algorithms, programs that use AI to detect patterns within the chaos, revealing predictions.

These HST programs predict when to buy as prices rise and then sell or sell short as prices fall. Far better than humans at predicting when the edge of the cliff will appear, AI creates a buffer in the system, blunting peaks but also leveling out losses. Thanks to the advancing predictive capabilities of AI, this new form of currency has begun to evolve into a more mainstream version.

National Defense

National security and defense have always been an arms race to gain dominance with the newest weaponry. Today, drone technology is the modern weapon of choice.

Weaponizing drones would make them an ideal fighting force because they are unmanned, disposable, and plentiful. Therefore, today’s scramble to discover AI capable of directing the drone, targeting without collateral damage, and assuming decision making for reconnaissance and attack missions could alter the power dynamic of tomorrow.

Cyber-Crime Prevention

An ever-increasing amount of cyber-attacks are designed to entice users to fall for scams. While some criminals may have discovered ways to use AI to generate data that can be converted for nefarious purposes, others are looking into ways that AI can be used to fight back. How can AI target cyber-crime?

AI countermeasures sift code and backtrack through countless loops. AI has the capability to keep up and thwart cyber-crimes; it’s an ideal hunter for the cyber criminals whose goals are obfuscation and escape through the vast network.

Powering The Future

As researches rise to the challenge to find new applications for tech that makes predictions and manage massive amounts of data, AI will only get smarter. The question for researchers of the future will be, “What can’t be done with smarter and more powerful computers?”
