How AI will affect us in the future

Technology is advancing at a rapid speed and nowadays we have more power in our pockets than we had a few years ago in our homes. It is impossible to deny the increasing connection between humans and machines. Artificial Intelligence advancements have made possible the imitation of human behaviors such as problem-solving, creativity and thinking. Although many people might think of AI as an abstract notion, it’s only a matter of time before AI will become an ingrained part of our daily lives.

Automation

As things stand, we live in a world of more and more automation. We live in an era of smart cars and smart phones. We live in an era of self-driving vehicles and devices that control all facets of our homes like Alexa. Are we outdated?

While many jobs that exist today will be gone 10 or 15 years from now, we really have had automation for a long time. Our first introduction to it was with the Industrial Revolution. While A.I. is already being used to navigate us to a new location, we are not outdated despite the complex computations super computers can do. Here's a great Ted talk about automation.

We picked it because he has a distinctly more positive outlook on automation than most people who address it.

AI part of series

Incidentally, I used to dislike Elon Musk.
I have changed my views on him completely.
Tesla factories in China were not green. He produces a car that is green in the West and pollutes in the East. And if there are those who think this is a sustainable business model? Why is it?

https://www.wired.com/2016/03/teslas-electric-cars-might-not-green-think/

It is because Tesla is cash positive. If something's green, it shouldn't make the people in China sick who are making the batteries period. That is not sustainable.

Most of the things we do as species are not sustainable. We can't eat or breathe money.
Without honesty or integrity, "what do you get"? (Fences)

Nothing....

He recently tried to warn U.S. governors to regulate AI before it's too late. I don't usually say this, but they were too stupid to attempt to understand what he was saying. Why is that?

We destroy the Earth daily but worry about AI?

"We got money for wars, but can't feed the poor" (Tupac)

C'mon. We have no priorities right now.
First of all, what is AI?

Here’s a great definition:
“Artificial Intelligence (AI) is usually defined as the science of making computers do things that require intelligence when done by humans. AI has had some success in limited, or simplified, domains.” ( www.alanturning.net)

Does it need to be regulated? Isn't that going to against the free market of ideas? Isn't China way ahead of the US?

What is the real danger?

MASS UNEMPLOYMENT PERIOD.

The immediate danger of AI is high unemployment. Just look at the Rust Belt of the US and the new opioid epidemic!!! They're coping with automation through self-destruction.

Let's try to attempt to address these questions over the next few blogs.

As a planet, we are caught up in insanity-- in mindlessness.  The system is not designed for the average person to make it. Just look at Washington and you will see complete mental illness in all corners.
