IBM on Friday released a 2018 retrospective on AI, stressing that the technology has moved beyond the nascent stage.

According to Dario Gil, COO of IBM Research, they are keeping an eye on three trends in AI for 2019.

First is human intuition that helps us understand cause/effect presents an enormous obstacle to machines.

“We’ll see improvements in ‘causal modeling’ techniques that will push AI from asking ‘what happened’ to asking ‘what would happen, based on possible actions,” Gil wrote in a blog post.

Secondly, trust and transparency will continue to drive the AI-conversation.

“Thirdly, we’ll see increased research into how quantum computing may help scale AI models — a key area of exploration as we continue to drive toward real-world use cases for quantum,” he noted.

While “general AI” can truly think, learn, and reason like a human, “broad AI” can learn more generally and work across different disciplines.

“IBM Research is driving this evolution. We have been a pioneer of AI since the inception of the field, and we continue to expand its frontiers through our portfolio of research focused on three areas: Advancing AI, Scaling AI, and Trusting AI,” said the company.
