The Breakthroughs of AI in 2022
As the end of the year approaches, it is time to look back at the technological advances of 2022. In the field of AI, progress has been remarkable with multiple industrial applications.
More than any other, generative AI has made a major breakthrough - with the automatic creation of images and texts. According to OpenAI, DALL-E - their AI system for creating images - is generating more than two million images a day. Not only will there be implications in the artistic sphere with the creation of millions of images, but also in the journalistic or marketing domain. According to a recent research by Gartner, by 2025, 30% of outbound messages from large organizations will be synthetically generated. In a more surprising development, biotech labs have also been using DALL-E to develop new drugs.
New discoveries are not limited to the automatic generation of content. For instance, Alphacode - a new AI developed by DeepMind - has made tremendous progress in coding: in contests with at least 5000 participants, the system outperformed 45.7% of programmers. In another area, AI has been used to track real-time cell changes, revealing a key mystery in biology.
Given its multiple applications, AI has to contribute to sustainability global efforts. While data centers currently account for 4% of the total greenhouse emissions worldwide - a figure that doubles every four years - researchers in India have used AI to make data centers smarter. In Europe, several startups have been involved in AI projects to tackle climate change.
