This year was a big year for AI, as the technology moved from an exclusive field to a mainstream one almost as fast as any previous technology.
It’s anticipated that in 2024 for AI scenarios, the excitement surrounding artificial intelligence will finally begin to materialize as more people become aware of its potential and limitations in general. These are some of the scenarios that we think will happen.
AI Exacerbates the Trash Fire That Is the 2024 Election
At this point, it’s anyone’s guess how the presidential election in 2024 will play out. There are numerous variables at play to formulate any firm predictions, except that influencers are going to persist to use every available instrument to sway public opinion, which includes AI in any manner that is most practical.
Prepare for programmed blogs and accounts to continuously spew generated gibberish, for example. A few people working full-time with a text and image generator can cover a lot of the ground, generating hundreds of fraudulent news and images to feed social media and blogs. “Flooding the zone” has historically been a successful strategy, and artificial intelligence now multiplies labor, allowing for greater but focused campaigns. Expect both false positives and false negatives as part of a deliberate effort to distort perceptions and cause people to question everything they read and see. That’s a win-win situation for politicians who prosper in chaos.
Businesses are going to employ “AI-powered” evaluations to facilitate voter roll purges, vote tallies challenges, and other actions designed to obstruct or restrict legitimate procedures.
New Year New Rules
Large-scale initiatives, such as the EU’s Artificial Intelligence Act, have an opportunity to evolve the industry, but the consequences are often gradual. This is deliberate, as it means that businesses will not have to adapt to new regulations as quickly, but it additionally implies that the impact of these significant laws will not be felt for a while, unless businesses are willing to make active, voluntary changes.
As a result, we can expect a brisk new market for AI compliance as billions of dollars invested in the technology drive that corresponds (though smaller-scale, nonetheless significant) loans in guaranteeing the instruments and procedures follow for national and international standards.
Due to the forthcoming presidential elections, 2024 AI scenarios isn’t the year to expect any changes to federal regulations. The limitations imposed on the kinds of questions that people will ask chatbots are expected to make 2024 a difficult year for AI.
OpenAI Turns into A Product Business
Right after the November leadership change, OpenAI will be an entirely distinct company; maybe not outwardly, but Sam Altman’s elevated status is going to have an impact at every level. And experiencing a “ship it” mindset is one way we expect that to happen.
We’ll see if that holds true for the GPT store, that was originally scheduled to open in December but was undoubtedly delayed due to a conflict in the C-suite. Hugging Face and other open-source models will not be accepted as the “app store for AI” becomes the go-to place for AI toys and tools. They will strictly follow Apple’s model due to it is a good starting point.
