Artificial intelligence (AI) technology has steadily become more powerful over the course of the last decades and in recent years it has entered our world in many different domains.
Given how rapidly AI developed in the past, despite the limited resources, this should make us expect AI technology to continue to become more powerful in the coming decades.
Until recently, private sector investment was relatively low (relatively few researchers were working on AI technology and there was little commercial interest and funding).
But, especially from 2018 onwards, it has increased rapidly. Investments in 2021 were about 30-times larger than just eight years earlier.
