To imagine being able to follow a person thanks to the artificial intelligence is not very sorcerer. Facial recognition alone could replace much of the responsibilities currently incumbent on border policemen (arresting unwanted individuals) and reducing waiting times at borders. The US government is very interested in biometrics for border security, including surveillance of fenced sections to prevent illegal crossings. The administration of Donald Trump refused the idea of a “digital wall” with Mexico, based on the AI and who would track the incursions with cameras rather than stop them with concrete. But it is already remarkable that the proposal is, so to speak, a credible alternative.
Establish a global cyber security strategy
Computer threat: virus hiding into computer code, result of hacker activities and computer crimes. Selective focus with depth of field effect.
One of Edward Snowden’s most shocking revelations was not that the NSA started using artificial intelligence to increase its cyber-defenses (we should have known) but that it was using its new AIs for partially automate national security and even counterattacks. The MonsterMind platform can automatically counter the many hackers, an ability that Edward Snowden called ” the worst thing he saw at the NSA .
The novel Neuromancer predicted it, here they are: automated cyber defense intelligence . Everything about safety is just an arms race and, no matter how talented the security experts, their human speed simply can not compete with automated bots. In 10 years, and moreover in the next 10 months, we will see large parts of cybersecurity being surpassed by automated techniques. As BlackRidge pointed out in the introduction to a recent study on the subject, automating cyber defense is a must.
Translate and study languages
To some extent, real-time translation tools already exist and have been invented by tech giants like Skype or Microsoft . But other research units, like Google or even the US Department of Defense are looking to go even further. The machines can for the moment only try to translate about a hundred of the 7000 languages found in the world. Whether it’s military or multinationals or just good old schools , someone will use artificial intelligence to push real-time translation further and allow us to talk to anyone soon.
Have a bank
There is a certain pleasure in watching the bankers get laid off by machines . But the true victory of the little people will come from artificial intelligence. Currently, the financial services sector has a lot to do with enriching the rich: they can afford better support and more money to manage the money they have. With AI, especially with Fintech open source solutions , it is possible to change financial habits and put everyone on an equal footing.
Get advice from a lawyer
It makes sense: the laws are supposed to apply automatically, so why could not they be defended by an automated lawyer? The reality is that for high-flying lawyers, it is precisely their ability to circumvent the rules that makes them successful. AI can profoundly change society by providing an almost acceptable defense to those who can not afford adequate human representation. In many countries, public defense is a total chaos that borders on disaster- but the AI is never tired, disgusted and does not judge immediately. It could provide adequate legal defense to millions of people who can not currently have one. If we look beyond the next 10 years, this change could be among the upsets of this list.
Establish a medical diagnosis

Completing the intuition of a human physician with the precision and completeness of artificial intelligence could be one of the greatest health revolutions since hand washing. Listen to what doctors think of this possibility. Humanity has produced more medical knowledge than any human brain can hold and artificial intelligences are outpacing the performance of the best doctors . Even in the face of a very binary dilemma between an all-human and all-artificial health system, how many people will be willing to choose the best way to stay in bed in 10 years?
