The year is 2035 and humanoid robots, powered by Artificial Intelligence, are part of everyday life. Detective Del Spooner hates robots because he was in a car accident and a robot saved him while leaving a 12-year-old girl to die despite the fact that her chances of survival were statistically lower than Detective Spooners. That’s a little backstory on the hero of Will Smith’s film I, Robot. These humanoids eventually band together in a plot to take over the world.
The Future: AI’s Impact Is Everywhere
Some sectors are at the beginning of AI. Regardless, the impact of artificial intelligence on our present-day lives is hard to ignore:
- Education: Textbooks will get digitized or gotten already with the help of AI. Early-stage virtual instructors support human instructors, and facial analysis measures students’ emotions to help determine who’s struggling and better tailor the experience to their individual needs.
- Healthcare: In the comparatively open AI field of healthcare, drug discovery is sped up and streamlined, diseases are more quickly and accurately diagnosed, virtual nursing assistants monitor patients, and big data analysis helps create a more accurate patient experience.
- Transportation: Although it could take more time to perfect AIs for transportation, autonomous cars will one day transport us from place to place.
- Manufacturing: AI-powered robots work beside humans to perform a limited range of tasks like stacking and predictive analysis, assembly, and sensors to keep equipment running smoothly.
- Media: Journalism is providing AI, too, and will continue to benefit from it.
- Customer Service: Google is working on an AI assistant that can place human-like calls to make appointments, such as your neighborhood doctor’s appointment or salon appointment. In addition, the AI system understands context and difference.
AI Is Tech That Appears To Think Like Humans
AI refers to any technology that is designed to operate in a manner similar to how the human brain operates. The AI available today does not aim to perfectly replicate a human brain and house it in a computer chip. Rather, the ‘human’ component is concerned with direct human interaction or output. Software companies that use AI services strive to make the user experience similar to interacting with humans, even down to the human learning drop that leads to Computer Vision.
AI-powered app systems must also learn and adapt in the same way that humans do by taking in information, processing it, and storing it for future use. Just like we touch a hot stove for the first time in our lives, and that pain registers in the brain and reminds us not to do it again. AI is no different.
But Not yet
AI development has already come a long way, but it still has a long way to go before we have to worry about it surpassing the capabilities of the human mind. We still need to learn how our brains work before we can build the perfect replica. However, artificial narrow intelligence (ANI) refers to a computer’s ability to perform a single task flawlessly, such as playing chess, which is already widely used. The anti-lock brakes in our cars power autopilot, Google, and spam filters, and are the driving force behind the music service Pandora and knowledge engine Wolfram Alpha. ANI at work is computer scrabble.
Why AI will never rule the world
AI cannot take over all jobs.
Humans create robots, which means they require skills, creativity, and smart work. As a result, we can conclude that jobs that require creativity, smart work, and skills are only here for a limited time.
Humans create robots, and we should capitalize on this by focusing on a skill-based economy rather than a degree-based one.
Because of their quality, creativity, and tradition, handcrafted items are becoming increasingly popular around the world. And, even in difficult times, jobs that require human skills and creativity will always exist. Furthermore, AI robots can assist us in discovering more secrets and unseen aspects of the universe, which will benefit the human race.
AI Robots Will Be Too Expensive To Implement World Wide
Robots rule over the world. First, they need to be everywhere. And the world is too big to let that happen. Second, AI Robots are expensive even though the research budgets are billions at present; maybe the cost may reduce in the future, but how much? It would only make sense for the companies or manufacturers to use them in areas where the profits surpass the costs. So while AI robots will get used in many fields worldwide, there is no chance they will be everywhere. And if they will be, then how would they create an empire?
Robots Will Have No Legal Powers
Humans are currently ruling over different countries with an election process, and the ruler is called the President. So, the only way intelligent AIs can ever rule the world without having an all-out war with humans is by using legal powers, and they won’t have any.
Even though they are super-intelligent, robots are only machines, and they won’t have human rights like the right to vote, the right to own property, the right to own companies, etc. And humans will never give robots these rights and never voluntarily allow them to be taken away. Also, while machines may be getting smarter, humans are not getting dumber, and so at most, the intelligent robots will be employed in an advisory role to powerful human beings.
