What do technology and AI experts and thought leaders think about leveraging and shaping the AI trajectory? We asked Avrohom Gottheil, founder of #AskTheCEO Media.
The topic I love talking about all the time is about leveraging technology to make people’s lives better. For example, smart cities can be built to incorporate time-saving technologies, such as letting people know, on a simple level and micro level, how long the wait is at the bus stop, or if there will even be any seats on the bus. On a more complex and macro level, the traffic grid will interconnect with electric vehicles to plot the most efficient route between home and office, for example, taking into account real-time traffic, NOT just where traffic is right now, but also taking into account the trajectories of all the moving vehicles on the road, as well as the timing of street lights, weather, and similar variables.
In addition, smart parking garages will also integrate into the smart-city grid to give you a window of time for leaving your home to when you can arrive at the garage unimpeded by other motorists looking for a parking spot at the same time.
We can take these scenarios so much deeper, such as knowing how long the walk will take to the office, how long the elevator queue will be, and also taking into account a stop at the restroom on the 3rd floor.
These applications, besides having a major positive effect on personal comfort, they will also have an economic impact, as well as an impact on the climate at large, because less time spent travelling will mean less pollution. Less time idling means more time for productivity.
So, when I think about shaping the AI trajectory for the future, I look at how technology can be not only ecologically friendly but also, how it can double up and be helpful for our own personal ecology – which is our health and wellbeing.
