Artificial Intelligence | Immortality or Death

Artificial Intelligence | Immortality or Death


Hey guys, I hope that you’re doing well today, this is episode 9 of AI News and today, we are going to talk about the opportunities and threats of artificial intelligence. AI is by far the most important technology of our era. It will impact every single industry in the future and companies that will implement it first will have a tremendous advantage over the competition. So, you know, it comes with tons of opportunities, but also threats that are difficult to predict. On one hand, the Gallup survey showed that 79% of the respondents have had a very positive impact on their lives with ai. Ai is already making our life easier, but we don’t see it. However if we turned off all the algorithm. We will notice it immediately. So, for example, just think of your Facebook feed: It’s all powered by a machine learning algorithm that select the content that may please you the best. It’s the same on Amazon or even Netflix : a machine learning algorithm is recommending new products based on your interests. On the other hand, 73 percent of the respondents think that AI technology will destroy more jobs than it will create. You know I really believe that everything will be automated in the future and that humans will not have to work for money anymore. So, they will have to adapt. I think that most jobs are at risk to be replaced by AI and one thing is sure: these jobs are not going back. Machines are demonstrating skills that they never had before and soon enough they will be our doctors teachers and even drivers. The first jobs that are going to disappear are jobs that involve repetitive tasks and the job that will remain a little bit more are the jobs that involve creativity and empathy. Also, 42% of the respondents would be very uncomfortable sitting in a self-driving car. You know, I understand that it may appear terrifying for safety reasons of course, but the reality is that self-driving cars are already here, and that we will see a bunch of them on the road by 2020. Self-driving cars are getting safer than humans, even in bad weather conditions. So, guys, just tell me what you think about it, like, would you be comfortable to sit in a self-driving car or not? I really want to emphasize that the greatest transition in the history of humankind is taking place! It’s a transition that will have more impact than the agricultural and industrial revolution. This is the Information Age, the era of artificial intelligence. And I can tell you one thing, Humanity will change more in the next 20 years than in the previous 300 years. As I’ve told you, AI comes with a lot of opportunities, but also threats that are difficult to predict. In the long term, humans will be either immortal, or dead Thank you so much for watching guys if you have liked this video, please share it with someone on your social media for example, and I would really appreciate it. And it would help me very much. If you want to learn more about AI, I have a playlist of all my videos about it and also a blog where I’m writing articles about it.
