AI – What is AI and why we are worried about our future?
When we think of Artificial intelligence our imagination reach up to security, smart lighting, and domestic gadgets or at the most to driver-less cars or maybe automation in advanced industry.
But that is not all about AI
Soon the AI is going to have its impact on our everyday life. It will spread in many more areas. Here are a few for example, in the field of economics, technical topics and even in the field of law. AI will soon replace manual security, way of verification including validity, security and control of systems.
There is a strong concern over certain issues like what if Artificial Intelligence takes over humans and leaves them jobless! Yes, that is possible AI can leave Human intelligence way behind and take over the world. That sounds funny but not impossible, but not in near future.
Let’s think in a positive way. Let’s think all the revolutionary inventions will be used for the help of humans and not for its destruction. The newer technology will help us in getting rid of diseases, keep us away from wars and not be used for mass scale massacre and help us fight with poverty.
Artificial Intelligence is getting more powerful, more intelligent and achieving newer targets at a very brisk pace which makes me feel proud and afraid at the same time! Sometimes I feel I am getting better tools that solve my problems instantly like I have a virtual assistant in my office that takes care of most of business routines.
But at the same time I feel and even worried about my own future. Would the AI become so powerful one day that it will snatch my job? I am sure I will not live to that point but it’s for sure that people will lose their job because the employers will have the choice to allot many jobs to robots or virtual assistants.
All is well with Artificial Intelligence?
In most case the AI is doing well for the humanity but it can harm the world with its unlimited devastating capacity as well. I am afraid, one day a crazy dictator will put his thumb at the ‘Red Button’ of weapons of mass destruction and the whole area would disappear into the thin air. Artificial intelligence has given an unlimited power of hitting the target with precession but at the same time it has developed the technology to counter such weapons so there is some hope left too.
There is no doubt the world has already divided in two different categories of people who think differently about future of artificial intelligence. There are happy people who think the future is safe with artificial intelligence and there are people who think that the day will come when AI will interfere with day to day activities and job security is certainly one of them.

AI- in my views
Personally speaking I am hundred percent sure that AI will become powerful enough but would never match the human intelligence or replace the human brain in totality. I also do not believe that robots will ever be as sensitive as human having the capacity of showing love or grief so let’s wait and watch what’s in store for us.

In the meantime, let the AI grow and bring better technology for human. Let’s hope for the best and forget all worries. There is no doubt that some of the worries are genuine but then that is common for all technologies and developments.
