The world we live in is run by technology with the goal is to see just how advanced we can get it. WIFI and smartphones are always within reach, and being “plugged in” is becoming more popular than engaging in real-life human interactions.

Ever since artificial intelligence (AI) was introduced to the public back in the 1950’s it has grown steadfast. In recent years, AI has brought concepts that only really existed in our imaginations to reality.

There are a lot of mixed emotions behind AI and, what seems to be, its unlimited amount of capabilities. Afraid, skeptical, wary, distrustful, hesitant — Many see both the good and bad side of AI. Sometimes the concerns may seem overdramatic. Other times, they make a good point.

The Good:

  • Improved Accessibility and Quality of Life:
  • Improved Communication with Machines
  • Revolutions of the Built Environment
  • Endless Applications
  • Enhanced Human Performance

The Bad:

  • A Potential Tool for Propaganda
  • Job Security
  • Workforce Implications
  • Potential Loss of Human Connection
  • Influenced Decision Making

It can’t be ignored that AI has made work easier, improved the efficiency of businesses, and made life better.

With all that said, the fear of the unknown seems to be the prominent factor. Not understanding something leads to an inherent distrust of it. How many of us truly know how AI works and the science behind it all? Perhaps the AI takeover can be less scary if it’s just explained better. That could make all the difference in how we experience this new wave of technology.

Sometimes, we have to find comfort in just acceptance. Whether you side with the good or the bad, AI is already too ingrained in our everyday lives and is here to stay.
