Artificial Intelligence: Good or Bad?

Artificial intelligence has been around for decades, yet it’s still not very well

understood by most people. As artificial intelligence technology continues

to advance and improve, it will become more common, and many people

wonder whether it’s good or bad for society. While it may be tempting to see

only the benefits of artificial intelligence and worry about the dangers later,

the true power of this technology lies in understanding both its potential

benefits and its potential drawbacks. This article explores the advantages and

The good news

Artificial intelligence (AI) has come a long way in recent years. So far, AI has

helped computers understand human speech, beat world champions at chess

, and even drive cars with minimal human supervision. And AI has also made

possible practical applications such as voice assistants, self-driving cars, and

medical robots. In fact, some experts predict that in just a few decades, nearly

all work—and possibly even shopping—will be done by robots.

The bad news

Artificial intelligence can and will destroy millions of jobs. That’s not an exaggeration.

According to a report from McKinsey, by 2030, 45% of jobs could be replaced by

automation. (35% of those will be knowledge worker jobs like accountants and lawyers,

while 30% will come from service sector jobs.) This makes sense; as AI continues to

improve, it’ll have more abilities than humans do in order to do certain tasks (such

as recognizing objects). In other words, even though we’ll be able to create AI that

has human-like dexterity, we’ll still need humans because they can recognize things.

Short Term Effects of AI

Although it’s hard to predict how things will go over a long period of time, some

people are more optimistic about AI than others. Gartner predicts that by 2020,

one in three jobs will be automated by machines. In 2017, researchers at MIT’s

Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) taught an AI

system to create its own unique renditions of photos without any human assistance.

And in 2016, Google introduced a tool that allows users to type words using their voice

rather than typing on a keyboard. Technology is still in its infancy and far from

perfect, but as it continues to evolve—and as computers become faster and more

efficient—it seems possible that systems like these could replace humans altogether.

Long Term Effects of AI

Artificial intelligence is generally considered a good thing. However, there are several

ways that AI may have long-term negative effects on society. Here are just a few ways

AI could be bad for us.
