more workers. Before you lament the loss of jobs, take a moment and watch how robots earn their role every day in the workplace”
The only reason why companies still need at least a few human workers is because machines are still unable to fully grasp common sense and are unable to make decision in a matter of emergency but if a truly artificially intelligent machine was to be created most tasks in the labour force could easy be replaced by machines.
There are many different viewpoints on whether Artificial intelligence is something that will affect our societies and community’s in our day to day lives, from a negative and/or a positive aspect. It is too soon to judge whether these machines with AI will take over the world like in the terminator movies, or if they will start out as amazing things that make our lives easier like in ‘I, Robot’, but the one thing that is guaranteed is that it will have a huge impact on our species as whole.
People believe that a true AI system will assist us in exploring parts of our planet, solar system and even our universe, by being able to withstand forces (i.e. temperature, weather, etc.) that we as humans could imagine confronting. They will be able to travel through space without worrying about age and will be able to make decisions based on logical and rational reasons rather than being affected by emotion. People are also correct when they say that if an AI program becomes advanced enough they could easily replace people in the work place:
“Technology has, of course, often disrupted and even destroyed whole industries and employment sectors. In the U.S., the mechanization of agriculture vaporized millions of jobs and led workers to eventually move from farms to factories. Later, manufacturing automation and globalization caused the transition to a service economy. Workers repeatedly adapted by acquiring new skills and migrating to jobs in new industries—but these changes have not altered the fact that most jobs continue to be essentially routine” .
A true AI will be able to replace a farmer; who only plants seeds, up to someone as” intelligent as a scientist, who will make new discoveries and advance the field there in. This does destroy industries that were not there before to and causes economic problems in the countries it happens in but at the same time it forces as well as motivates people to search or even create new opportunities, and this can cause numerous amounts of people to become educated and establish a better life for themselves.
Jason Silva, a YouTuber with the channel known as “Shots of Awe” did an amazing video on Artificial Intelligence. In this video he refers to the creation of AI as “evolution”. In his opinion he believes that what ‘AI truly is amplifying the most powerful phenomenon in the universe, which is intelligence, and by doing this we are finally learning how to reverse engineer, understand and reproduce intelligence that is not limited to or constricted by the...
