Use of AI in the research of quantum mechanics

AI can be used to improve the research method of Quantum Mechanics. Searching for different uses of artificial intelligence has always been a successful journey and among its numerous uses, quantum mechanics stands in a vital position. AI can be used to predict molecular wave functions and the electronic properties of molecules. The behavior of the electron in the molecule can be observed and the data can be fed to AI algorithm, which would further predict the future behaviors of the electrons in the molecules.

Will AI make interpreters and sign language obsolete?

In their decades-long chase to create artificial intelligence, computer scientists have designed and developed all kinds of complicated mechanisms and technologies to replicate vision, language, reasoning, motor skills, and other abilities associated with intelligent life. While these efforts have resulted in AI systems that can efficiently solve specific problems in limited environments, they fall short of developing the kind of general intelligence seen in humans and animals.
