Artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer a figment of the imagination of science fiction authors, the technology is now paving its way to establishing itself subtly or not so subtly in our everyday lives. Venture Beat brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “How to use data analytics to improve quality of life.”

Technology has a reputation for being impersonal. It’s easy to think of machine-driven AI, 3D and biomechanics software as science fiction. But when pointed at the right problem, advanced data analytics solutions have the power to change human lives for the better.

The real challenge is most organizations have minimal knowledge on how AI systems make the decisions they do, and as a result, how the results are being applied in the various fields that AI and machine learning are being applied. 

Explainable AI allows users to comprehend and trust the results and output created by machine learning algorithms. Explainable AI is used to describe an AI model, its expected impact and potential biases. Explainability becomes critical when the results can have an impact on data security or safety.

While there will definitely be difficulties being encountered as the AI technology evolves, yet the positive effect it will have on society in terms of efficiency is immeasurable.
