[ Tech Review in 2018 : AI ]
Artificial intelligence, or AI, has been designated as one of the promising technologies in 2018, according to various research institutes. Artificial Intelligence has grabbed a lot of attention in the global market along with the rise of an AI program, AlphaGo. This year, a growing number of AI technologies have been closely connected with people’s daily lives. And it has led various changes in a lot of different industrial areas including art. AI-based voice recognition technology is one of the areas that has actively applied AI technologies. The combination of two technologies have enabled the communication between AI and human. The AI-based speaker which enjoyed explosive popularity in 2018 in the domestic market, has contributed to improving the quality of people’s lives. AI has already exceeded the level of human especially in the fields of image and voice recognition. It has been applied to the fields of medicine and security to replace human works. And it has contributed to saving time and cost. Aside from replacing human works and improving the convenience, AI has been expanded to the field of art, which requires creativity. The collaboration works of human and AI have created a great synergy effect and it has led to the development of creative contents. We introduce AI technologies, which have been introduced to a variety of different areas and created a lot of new industries.
