UMBC continues to be a leader in providing top-notch graduates with the resources to tackle the world’s toughest challenges, from climate change to space exploration to AI technology.
In today’s Industry News, we look at the challenge and future of AI Technology, exploring its potential in our world.
A Cause for AI Technology Pause
Recently there has been a call for AI labs to pause their AI development for six months. The pause is so that labs can work to better research and regulate the AI technology they have already developed. This call for AI labs to refocus their efforts on training and researching their current AI technology has been signed by important figures in the tech world, such as Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and Twitter, and Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple.

Growing Concern on the Future Job Market
There has been a growing concern that with the recent advancement of AI technology, many creative professionals will soon be out of a job or will have their wages lowered. This concern is not unwarranted, as some research shows that since the 1980s, technological advancements have replaced jobs faster than they created. Others argue that AI could improve our quality of life with high productivity.

AI – A Strong Software Engineering Partner
People in software development do not need to worry that AI will take their jobs, at least not soon. Nevertheless, engineers can use AI to strengthen their codes with fewer flaws and maximum efficiency. Large language models (LLM) are particularly beneficial for testing codes, finding their weaknesses, and finding improvement points.

A Breakthrough in Climate Change
Human-manufactured CO2 has been an increasing issue with climate change. Researchers claim wind turbines can help clean the air by dragging polluted air down and capturing it. This claim is vital as many greenhouse gasses from factories and cities are too high for ground machines to capture.
