Many people have negative feelings towards AI, but it is essential to know that AI can be quite beneficial. Robots are taking over the world! Okay not really, but sometimes that’s what magazines and movies would like you to think. Some few months ago, researchers wrote an article about how the possibility of hacking into robots and making them do terrible things has never been closer. Here’s the truth. Artificial intelligence is a good thing! It’s time for us all to stop thinking about the evils of technology and instead focus on the benefits. So here are some of the importance of artificial intelligence that might WoW you.
It Produces Jobs
One of the most common arguments against artificial intelligence is that it will take over people’s jobs. However, here are the facts:
According to a report by US Presidential administration, as many as 47 percents of jobs will be replaced by artificial intelligence. However, this report goes on to say that the amount of jobs being lost is less than the amount that will be gained by AI.
Did you know Google and Netflix both use artificial intelligence to help them in remaining relevant? Google employed over 70,000 employees. AI helps businesses grow, develop, and allocate new resources to hire more people; there are many companies out there following Google’s example and using AI software in their business plans.
Another of the advantages of artificial intelligence is that it helps to reduce the effect of some of human’s poor decisions.
An example of this is self-driving cars every year. According to the Association for Safe International Travel, that’s an average of about 3,300 deaths every day and does not include those injured or disabled from the crash. Google decided that something need to be done about that horrifying statistic, so it came up with the idea of self-driving cars. According to Jacquelyn Miller, spokeswoman for Google, their self-driving car fleet has travelled over 1.8 million miles. In that time they have been involved in accidents a paltry 13 times. Not only are the accidents all minor fender benders but each one was also the result of some human driver in another car reacting carelessly. For example, Miller stated that the last two accidents occurred while they were stopped at a light and another vehicle rear-ended them. Before you go out and buy a new Google car, it’s important to note that the technology, research, and development still have a long way to go before it’s ready for consumers. However, it’s exciting to imagine the world with fewer car accidents and fatalities, and that’s possible with artificial intelligence.
Another benefit of it is that it’s convenient! AI makes life more convenient for the elimination of repetitive tasks. A simple example is scheduling tasks and meetings. day running Higher convenience at work has also been harmonized with increased productivity as well.
Artificial Intelligence plays a massive role in the health sector. More medical institutions are turning to AI not only to educate their employees better but also, to make surgeries more successful. Computers and robots have been known to be able to cut straighter and more precise lines. Therefore, there has been an argument to include more artificial intelligence in surgeries and diagnoses. Artificial intelligence also helps people get better health care, better food, less stressful jobs, and an improved quality of life.
Faster technological advancements is another importance of AI. The more we use AI in research the faster it will learn to find results for many of the questions that the world is exploring. Ever thought of having artificial intelligence that runs through thousands of simulations electronically to find cures for many of life’s ailments?. This would free up time for researchers to focus on new objectives. Who knows we might find the cure to cancer with the help of artificial intelligence?
It’s More Efficient
Before the arrival of AI, many businesses suffered for lack of efficiency in the day to day running their businesses. The emergence of artificial intelligence has helped organizations to ramp up their office space. Through adjustable lights, thermostats, and other office equipment, AI is assisting companies to run their buildings more efficiently and securely.
