It is also known as narrow artificial intelligence or weak artificial intelligence. It is used by industries and companies and performs narrow tasks like face recognition and places to search while driving a car. Many IT companies are working hard to develop strong artificial intelligence. However, artificial intelligence can outperform tasks better than human intelligence, and this can be a threat to the future if the technology is not used correctly.
Technology is a network with all the other networks connected, which closely connects Europe. Europe uses its wealth and data to make it useful. Artificial intelligence makes a huge difference in our lives. In both the positive and the negative ways. It is really important for us to know and understand the impact of technology on people. This is why they have established a committee that will examine the technology. There are many applications that people use, and without knowing the opportunities and the threats, it would be difficult for them to know the Future aspects of AI.
The countries of the USA and Europe already have a strong base in the digital market, and they are running the business-to-business applications that many people are using. By their performance, such states and the countries become the global leader in the country’s economy. Also, they take the responsibility to protect the country’s freedom and privacy of speech.
What is the benefit of artificial intelligence to society?
Artificial has created its boom in almost every industry, be it health care centers, cars, and transport systems. Artificial intelligence has maintained to increase the duration and also facilitates long-lasting productivity and is also providing services. They are also imparting part-time training and education. It has become important in the pandemic to have distance learning. You can also make your workplace a robot that can be misused and trouble for jobs and the growing industries.
What opportunities does artificial intelligence have for growing businesses?
It’s a new generation for AI development in the industries, which helps promote products and services. The companies have strong positions, and the companies can boost their economy, health care, machinery, farming, fashion, travel, and tourism. Artificial intelligence helps boost sales, improve customer services, increase production output, and also helps in saving energy.
How artificial intelligence helps in public services?
Public services are the ones that provide us with limited costs and also offer us new services and possibilities that help in the growth and development of the country.
Taking the assistance of the public services can help to reduce costs and improve the sustainability of the products. This is how artificial intelligence helps in achieving the goals of industries and companies.
If the country’s democracy is strong, artificial intelligence can help to prevent cyber attacks. It also helps to improve the quality of access to information. In addition, artificial intelligence plays a major role in supporting diversity, and it reduces the possibility of prejudice in some decisions and uses analytical data instead.
Artificial intelligence, safety, and security–
Artificial intelligence is of the utmost use in preventing crimes, and its uses are predicted to be used more in the criminal justice system. Artificial intelligence is used accurately to process massive data and prevent prisoners and terrorist attacks. It is used in the detection of inappropriate data and to stop unlawful acts on online platforms. Artificial intelligence is also used for military purposes, planning defense and attack strategies, and targeting the key system in cyberwarfare.
Now, these were all the usefulness and the advantages of artificial intelligence. But there are always two sides to the coin, and therefore, we need to understand the other side.
The threats and the challenges of artificial intelligence in the future-
The speed at which people and companies are using artificial intelligence also invites some threats shortly.
let us study the threats and potential risks of artificial intelligence-
Overuse and Underuse of artificial intelligence-
You should know that anything that is overused or not at all users can negatively impact us. The under, as well as overuse of artificial intelligence, can be a threat to us. It could lead us to poor implementation and missed opportunities for the services and other programs and plans. This will make the top most popular industries lose the advantage in providing their products and services to the other parts of the world. This will create a poor economic stagnation, and people will not have many possibilities.
If we talk about the underuse of artificial intelligence, it can be derived from the mistrust in artificial intelligence. There are also other reasons for this, which can be low investments from the companies, dependencies on the data, lack of initiative, etc., now if we consider the overuse of artificial intelligence. Also, it could lead to threats as some applications are not suited for artificial intelligence. This can be a complex societal issue.
Both the overuse and the underuse of artificial intelligence can be a threat to society.
Liability- what damage is caused by artificial intelligence, and who is responsible for it?
Operated devices can cause damage to the services. This is an important challenge that the industries face, and they are the ones to be responsible for the damage caused. This can same be understood by an example, that in a self-driving car, the damage should be covered by the owner or the car manufacturing company? Suppose the manufacturer is completely free from taking responsibility. In that case, there is no incentive to provide the services for goods, which will also break millions of people’s trust. This can lead people to restrict themselves from stifling innovation.
Can artificial intelligence cause threats to the fundamentals of right and democracy?
The production of the outputs of artificial intelligence depends on the data it uses. One thing you need to remember is that the data can be in both forms biased and unbiased, and that can be done intentionally and unintentionally. You can make artificial intelligence look actual by the change in certain digits, and it doesn’t need to be precise. For instance, some important aspects may or may not be programmed into the algorithm and cannot be reflected or replicated. These simple terms for understanding are referred to as math washing.
Data should be accurate when collected as it can lead to the wrong decisions on ethnicity, sex, firing, hiring, offering loans, and even in criminal records. Where artificial intelligence is used and helpful in the prevention of cybercrime, on the other hand, it can also affect the right to privacy and data protection. It can be used for false live tracking and face recognition in profiling an individual.
Therefore, the person should be very careful while collecting data as it needs to be accurate because the results can differ from what has been collected.
Artificial intelligence can also impact the country’s democracy, and people have already blamed it for creating online echo chambers, and this is due to the behavior of the previous person. Artificial intelligence can also affect the user’s mind. By displaying only what a person would like to watch, it can create a pluralistic environment and has full access to the public debate. Moreover, the worst thing artificial intelligence can be used for is creating fake and manipulated videos, images, sounds, etc. It can also lead to financial risks, harm reputation, and affect decision-making. This could separate the public from each other and also manipulate the elections.
Artificial intelligence can also affect the committee’s freedom and could track the profile of the individuals from which they can benefit.
How artificial intelligence impacts jobs?
Artificial intelligence has been broadly used in industries and workplaces. But have you ever thought about the threats of artificial intelligence on jobs? Well, extreme or misuse of artificial intelligence in the workplace can lead to the elimination of jobs. The main motive of artificial intelligence is to create job opportunities for people. If used correctly, it can play a long-term role in preventing unemployment and ensuring job security to many workforces.
What impact does artificial intelligence have on the Competition?
There is a lot of Competition among companies. So the companies with more information could gain more advantage and also be the leaders in the market. But at the same time, it can lead to the distortion of the information.
Let us study the safety and security risks of artificial intelligence-
Risks related to safety and security-
Some applications are not well developed, which can pose some risk when they contact the physical humans and when the interaction starts. Also, it includes the misused and the hacked applications which use artificial intelligence. If humans do not control artificial intelligence, it could lead to the manufacturing of dangerous weapons.
Access to information can be misleading due to certain imbalances based on the person’s behavior with their data. For example, in business, an online vendor can predict that someone is willing to pay them online or can even adopt a political campaign. Moreover, it can be difficult for a person to judge whether they are interacting with artificial intelligence or the person.
So, keeping data transparent and legit is important.
Can artificial intelligence be dangerous?
Many scientists and researchers believe that artificial intelligence can become a risk if it exceeds the human intellect and emotions. There are two scenarios that the experts are more likely to intend the risk and disadvantage of AI :
- Artificial programs could do something devastating-
The evolution of AI has developed autonomous weapons which are programmed to kill. When it gets into the wrong person’s hands, then the weapons can easily cause mass casualties. Having been considered that the arms race can lead to an artificial intelligence war can also result in destruction. These weapons are designed to be extremely hard to turn off, and this is because to avoid being thwarted by the enemy. The threat is that humans can lose control if any of such situations occur. This is the risk that includes the narrow artificial intelligence also, but it keeps on growing according to the tasks.
- Artificial intelligence can develop destructive measures to achieve its goal-
Humans developed artificial intelligence to help the world. But we humans can fail if we fully align the goals of artificial intelligence to ours. Technology can make or break. If you ask an intelligent car to take you to the airport within three minutes, you will end up being chased by the cops and would be covered in vomit. This is basically what you did not want, but you asked for it. This can get you and the people around you in trouble and, in worst cases, can even cause destruction. If a project is tasked with geoengineering, then it could create havoc and can be a threat to humans.
The above points illustrate that the concern regarding artificial intelligence advancement is not malice but competence. If the super artificial intelligence goals aren’t aligned with humans, then it could have a problem. The goal to achieve success is never to place artificial intelligence over human intelligence and not to control everything by artificial intelligence.
Let us discuss some of the controversies regarding artificial intelligence-
There is some misconception regarding artificial intelligence. What do we want our future to be like with artificial intelligence? What will we advise our kids? How will the new jobs replace the old ones? Will we have control over machines, or will the machines replace us! Or merge with us. How will humans take or consider the upcoming artificial intelligence? These are certain questions we need to find out before making any decision.
Is artificial intelligence truly a threat?
There are some positive as well as negative effects of artificial intelligence. But if we consider today’s scenario, then some negatives are too to be considered.
- The Real risks of artificial intelligence will be increased numbers of job turnovers for job automation when artificial intelligence takes over. Many of the jobs will be lost and taken over by artificial intelligence. Hence, humans need to look for some other activities to embrace the change and get themselves engaged in some activities that will help them benefit their social and mental health.
- Political, social, and legal ramifications, scientists and researchers focus on putting humans into the best positions rather than focusing on artificial intelligence. We have developed some of the scalable controlling methods with the help of artificial intelligence. Our business companies and governments should find time to build, formulate and execute some rules and responsibilities. However, as artificial intelligence continues to mature, there could be negative ramifications.
- Artificial intelligence might enable terrorism. Through the advancements in technology, the wars would be fought with the help of autonomous drones, netroots robots and nano attacks. These can be dangerous and can lead to severe destruction. Also, we need to monitor the global autonomous weapons race in the smartest way possible.
- Artificial intelligence can lead to social manipulation and bias, and artificial intelligence is still at risk of getting manipulated by humans. If artificial intelligence is created by using biased data, then that bias will affect artificial intelligence. It can be misused once in the wrong hands and can lead to the amplification of misinformation.
- Artificial intelligence surveillance, there are no doubt incredible technologies introduced with the help of the AI, but there are also risk factors associated with it. Artificial intelligence can access the information globally of any individual, and have access to cameras, mining social networks, which can be a huge threat.
‘Everything we use online is products and services, and this is all with the help of artificial intelligence. With the help of human intelligence, artificial intelligence can help the civilized only until the time when the artificial intelligence is used correctly.’
No doubt artificial intelligence has both positive and negative sides, but then what we need to consider is that the negative side should not overcome the positives regarding artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence can be helpful and lead to a country’s development but at the same time when used negatively it can have a devastating effect on the country. Use of artificial intelligence can be helpful both for the government as well as private organizations. People need to understand both the positives and negatives.
Artificial intelligence is the stimulation of human intelligence by machines. Artificial intelligence can solve significant problems, which saves a lot of money and time. We can take the help of artificial intelligence to analyze historical data. With the help of artificial intelligence you can get everything and develop your business. However, it can also have a devastating effect on the country.
