Many people are concerned about the future of AI, or artificial intelligence. Some fear it because they feel that AI may take over their jobs. Other people fear that AI will make us redundant in a world with ever increasing population. In this article we will explore the future of AI.
What is AI?
Artificial intelligence is the ability to perform tasks and execute decisions. AI is already very advanced today. It is becoming increasingly more intelligent as time goes on. A computer can beat human chess champions or make a decision based on its hunches and base its decisions solely on what it learns about the world around it.
If you look at some of the most popular games available today, such as Call of Duty, you will notice that they are all based around the basic building blocks of modern day software applications. If we could implement this artificial intelligence into our computers we would have computers that were more intelligent than humans.
Not all of the current fears regarding artificial intelligence are entirely valid. There is no reason to think that computers will replace humans. Computers may have issues in the future and we may still need humans to do specific jobs, but that’s not the only question that should be asked.
AI Advancement Has Been Rapid
In recent years the pace of advancement has been rapid. Just as it did in the past, AI software will become faster and more capable over time.
Some think that the advances in AI will make humans redundant. They fear that technology will eventually overtake humans and all work will be done by AI robots. This fear may have merit. But as we see many industries employing a lot of humans now, it’s difficult to see how technology will replace human labor completely.
One concern that many people have is that, as AI becomes more advanced, we will soon see the creation of human-level artificial intelligence. If this happens it would cause a major shift in our society and could bring with it major societal change.
AI may even be the final innovation that human minds will have to provide. Many have the impression that human intelligence is limited by how much it can actually do.
The predictions for the future of AI and technology are not all positive. There is no reason to assume that the human race will become extinct.
Some people fear that the advances in AI and technology will be used to control people and enslave them. Others worry that the technology will replace humans and lead to a reduction in economic development.
Some argue that we need to embrace the future of AI because it will help us solve problems that we can’t solve today. They suggest that new technologies can relieve stress and emotional and physical suffering. Others believe that the advances in AI and technology will improve people’s lives and help them find meaning in their lives.
We all want to live in a world where the future of AI is bright. And the future of AI may be a bright one indeed.
