What are your predictions for robotics?

  Do you have any ideas on what we might see in the future?

6 ways artificial intelligence is going to make your life better

Here are six predictions Moore, who is now dean of Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science, has for artificial intelligence in the next 10 years. And be sure to tune into Codebreaker to find out more ways artificial intelligence is shaping our lives.

Moore said in the next three to five years, AI like Siri will be much better at being our personal assistants. In that time frame, we will be able to ask more of our AI, Moore predicts.

For example, AI may be able to help us decide whether we need to see a doctor for an ailment. Or help recommend somewhere to eat based on our preferences and previous restaurants we visited.

During natural disasters, it's difficult to process all of the information coming in and devise a plan to provide the most immediate relief.

Moore said he thinks in the next five years, AI will become intelligent enough to do the thought processing for us. That means processing what is happening and making judgment calls, such as determining how many people need to be on hand for whatever is happening.

We've already started seeing this in practice with robots playing soccer at the RoboCup World Championship.

But eventually, artificial intelligence will become advanced enough such that robots can work in teams to help each other during bigger situational problems, like search and rescue missions, Moore said.

Moore said AI will be able to detect the outbreak of a disease before humans can in the next decade.

It can be difficult to determine that what appears as a one-off problem could actually be a trend, especially if patients are seeing different doctors at different times. AI, on the other hand, could sort through data to alert health professionals of potential outbreaks before they are capable of catching on.

This is already a discussion that's in the works today. If a driverless car is in a situation where it has the option to hit another car or a pedestrian, which will it choose? The ability to make an ethical choice like that is not something autonomous vehicles are currently capable of doing, as highlighted in a recent MIT study.

But Moore said he thinks artificial intelligence will advance to a point where, in 10 years, driverless cars will be able to make those calls.
