Is Artificial Intelligence good?

 

You’ve read it in the papers.  You’ve knowledged it in life. Machines are taking over.

And they are undertaking it fast.  Siri turned on October go ahead, question her if you don’t believe me. Tesla’s initially Autopilot program is also. And Alexa is not more than years old.

Despite the fact that these AI-powered technologies haven’t graduated previously in their initially decade, they seem to be running our lives. And they are apparently undertaking it better than we can.

I wrote concerning the future of driving years ago.  I am a big believer in the fact that autonomous vehicles will take over...and for the better.  Though, the spectacular adoption of AI technologies in the previous decade has many anxious. Is this going too fast?  Should humans slow down this growth? Should you be anxious about your job? Or should you be excited concerning the prospects of productivity and convenience?

How should we all be approaching the ubiquitous occurrence of Artificial Intelligence?

In this post, I’ll attempt to create available a few apparatus that hopefully aid you approach what my friend and co-founder of Cloudera Amr Awadallah has labeled the “Sixth Wave: Automation of Choices”.

Will Human Jobs Go Away?

You will undoubtedly find a vast body of literature that dissects the potentially hazardous consequences of Artificial Intelligence ventures.  Just a week ago, AI and Analytics Futurist, Bernard Marr, was warning us concerning the “The Most Dangerous Technology Trends In Everyone Should recognize About”.  AI Cloning and Facial Recognition made the list.

No far ahead than this previous Friday, the McKinsey Universal Institute publicized an investigation piece that revealed that the $B+ financed in artificial intelligence technologies are bound to affect African Americans the most…

If you’re commencing to panic, take a breath and pick up a copy of Andrew McAfee and Erik Brynjolfsson’s book: “The Second Machine Age”.

And if you don’t have time, watch this -min-TedTalk.  In it, Andrew lays out his thesis for the Artificial Intelligence effect and adoption.  His points will aid you to rationalize this development and will probably taper the creative headlines that predict the dawn of humanity as we recognize it.

Here are a couple of essential take-aways:

Automation has occurred.  Don’t deny it.

  • For about years, people have been saying that extra technology drives fewer jobs. Data proves this incorrect.
  • “Economies in the built worldwide have coasted laterally on something pretty close to full employment, he speaks, however, continues: “this time it is not the same” because “our machines have commenced demonstrating skills they have never, ever had before: comprehending, speaking, hearing, seeing, answering, writing, and they are still acquiring fresh skills”....

How To Program Effectively

The short story of it, is that Artificial Intelligence is good.  And it have to create incredible opportunities. However it does need inspection and it calls for a method.

When it comes to “automating tasks” at your work, I recommend that you break them up into categories:

Programmed: these are tasks that are binary, where involving people is counterproductive.  Manufacturing lines have been established within these requirements for decades look up Robotic Process Automation or R.

  • Disagreemented: these are tasks that are non-binary and need humans to look out for on machines OR for machines to look out for on humans.  This will most probably cover the majority of your tasks.
  • Collaborative: these are tasks that humans are uniquely positioned to initiate, advance and complete.
  • You might desire to come up with your own model.  And there again, lots of literature is obtainable to aid you.  You have to refer to my earlier post on the new books in Artificial Intelligence for some key authors and reference books: I would commence with Tom Davenport’s “Only Humans Need to Apply”.

One thing for sure: the competition for Artificial Intelligence domination is well beneath way.  Nothing will stop it. Slowing down is not in the cards. Competing is required.
