Everyone loves a good Top 4 list, so here is yet another one! We promise it’s not just click-bait! These are the latest and greatest AI trends and projects of 2022. With artificial intelligence being such a fast moving field, you have to stay on top of all the new developments and great breakthroughs that are happening every day.

1. Predicting Bitcoin Prices

The growth of cryptocurrency has been a source of wealth for the tech-savvy individuals smart enough to take advantage of playing the crypto-markets. Using AI for stock market prediction has seen plenty of attention, so it’s no surprise that the people with the computing resources at hand to employee AI to analyze the blockchain are taking advantage. If you see a big market adjustment you might have AI to thank. We can now see AI’s influence in crypto as the biggest players short the market and take advantage to grow their wealth!

2. Waste Recognition

Biomedical Engineering is one of 2022’s fastest growing sectors, so naturally AI has been a big part of that story. You may have heard of the Chinese use of anal swabs for detecting COVID, but did you know AI researchers are actually using a similar technique to analyze human-waste? That’s right, our poop is getting the AI treatment to help identify health issues straight from the source. Kohler Canada has already invested heavily in smart toilets, but recently made a major commitment to the application of AI in their commodes to help screen human-waste for health issues. Preliminary work is focussed on colorectal issues like cancer and polyps using computer vision, but the possibilities are thought to go well beyond digestive tract issues.

3. Enhanced REM Sleep

The signal processing possibilities of AI are now sneaking their way into our dreams! Can you believe it? By classifying our alpha, beta, and various other brainwaves, the researchers at leading universities are now finding ways to decode our dreams with AI algorithms. In the near future they anticipate injecting signals directly into our brains to make our dreams even sweeter by using deep-fake style technology to enhance our REM sleep. Your own dreams, but better through AI!

4. This Medium Post!

So here is the big reveal, this post itself (at least everything before this sentence) is actually written by the Rapid Growth Institute’s ( latest text-parsing algorithms! We’ve been hard at work on content generation in RGI’s AI group and we hope we had you fooled. Web-scraping all the big public domain blog sites was the easy part, there’s so much great data out there that you can just take for free without even asking, but connecting the pieces and creating an appropriate pipeline has been some hard work — it took us almost a week to get it together. Just think of all the possibilities for real-time content generation. Great for growing your brand, follower count, or influence on social media.

Stay tuned for more great projects from me and the AI group at RGI.
