Artificial Intelligence (by Jack Rosenthal)

[ By on May 15, 2017 ]

Alot has changed in the past few decades. New technology and advancements have not only elevated our global society, but it has also improved it in ways we could not have imagined. One of these advancements we have made is artificial intelligence, or AI. We see this technology in our day to day lives like when we use personal assistants such as Apple’s “Siri,” Amazon’s “Alexa,” and Samsung’s “Cortana.” The point is, is that AI serves millions of people around the day, every second. We use this intelligence to improve our lives as well as lives of others. From in our pockets to the cars we drive, AI is everywhere. But should there be a limit? Have we flown to close to the sun? What are the pitfalls of Artificial Intelligence? At the rate we are going, AI could soon be taking over the workforce and jobs could be taken away from good working people. These advancements can change the way we think as humans altogether. We communicate and act with AI as if they are our own kind, and we welcome that. All we want is a personal “human-like” assistant to help us in our everyday lives, but at what cost? Our humanity? I think I could investigate how we use AI, and the implications that come with this technology in the present and in the future. I could research the benefits and disadvantages of the fascinating world of Artificial Intelligence.

    I know so little about AI, but I agree with you that the possibilities seem expansive. One observation – the human that creates the code or algorithm has a ton of power, right? Also, your thinking makes me think about more abstract ideas like “what is the value of work?”

    This is an interesting topic. I know a man who pioneered in the AI field and was so concerned by what he experienced in that field that he decided to go back to school and study philosophy. It always struck me that he had identified the two fields that need to work closely together if AI is to develop responsibly- the study of who we are and the study of new creation.

    I want to know why the names and voices of these AI “personal assistants” and GPS guides always default to female.
