6 ways artificial intelligence is going to make your life better

We're already starting to see big developments in artificial intelligence.

Whether it's robots learning to speak like humans or a system capable of identifying landmarks in photos, artificial intelligence will continue to become a bigger part of our daily lives.

Andrew Moore, the former vice president of engineering at Google, told Tech Insider that big developments in artificial intelligence are coming, but that change will be gradual. Still, he envisions a lot happening in the next 10 years.

It's a theme we explore in our latest episode of Codebreaker, the podcast by Marketplace and Tech Insider. 

Philosopher Nick Bostrom tells Codebreaker why it's hard to design moral artificial intelligence:

Here are six predictions Moore, who is now dean of Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science, has for artificial intelligence in the next 10 years. And be sure to tune into Codebreaker to find out more ways artificial intelligence is shaping our lives.

3 to 5 years: AI will be much better at being your "personal concierge."

Moore said in the next three to five years, AI like Siri will be much better at being our personal assistants. In that time frame, we will be able to ask more of our AI, Moore predicts.

For example, AI may be able to help us decide whether we need to see a doctor for an ailment. Or help recommend somewhere to eat based on our preferences and previous restaurants we visited.

5 years: AI will be able to process massive amounts of information during a crisis.

During natural disasters, it's difficult to process all of the information coming in and devise a plan to provide the most immediate relief.

Moore said he thinks in the next five years, AI will become intelligent enough to do the thought processing for us. That means processing what is happening and making judgment calls, such as determining how many people need to be on hand for whatever is happening.

5 years: Similarly, robots will be able to communicate with each other to coordinate a plan.

We've already started seeing this in practice with robots playing soccer at the RoboCup World Championship. 

But eventually, artificial intelligence will become advanced enough such that robots can work in teams to help each other during bigger situational problems, like search and rescue missions, Moore said.
