Will Artificial Intelligence replace Human Intelligence?

As we all know that Big Revolution of 21st Century that is unfolding itself is ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. It has created a lot of fear in the minds of not only the blue collar workers but also white, gold and pink collar job workers too about their future.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the development, deployment, and maintenance of computational systems that can replicate certain types of human intelligence. Most AI definitions explain the positive aspects of using artificial intelligence to emhance human intelligence and help people be more productive.

Many people now rely on AI such as:

  • learners from Universities when doing their dissertations they ask AI
  • when people want to write speeches they ask AI
  • when designers want to generate animated images they ask AI,
  • AI is being applied in finance and insurance to increase fraud detection and financial forecasting accuracy
  • Healthcare uses AI to improve treatment efficacy and speed up diagnosis

Artificial intelligence is the key to improving people’s quality of life but however, artificial intelligence presents challenges that we need to address, especially for companies, which are becoming more and more committed to benefit from this technology.

AI is playing a crucial role in cybersecurity, detecting and preventing cyberattacks in real-time. Machine learning algorithms can analyze network traffic, identify anomalies, and block threats. This technology can also monitor social media, identify fake news, and prevent phishing attacks.

One of the major challenge amongst working group is Job Loss. This is the most common genuine concern that people have. AI Powered Automation, AI software and Tools performing routine tasks, General Decision making and Pattern following tasks can easily do some tasks of the employed people working in Blue, White, Gold and Pink Collar workers currently.

Another fear is of Privacy Breach. AI works on the data available to it and such data if misused or mishandled then it may poses serious privacy concerns and AI powered tools can be unethically used to put surveillance.

Overcoming the fear of AI

AI helps and doesn’t replace: AI is a powerful tool that can help humankind in making life better and it’s not meant for taking over all kind of Jobs. AI can be used to enhance the efficiency of the work and while some work may be automated with help of AI, it will also create many opportunities in new upcoming fields. For example: AI Promt expert, Data Handling, Data Analysis,etc.

AI systems also allows human researchers to focus their time and attention on other tasks, such as generating new hypotheses and developing new theories.

One of the main limitations of AI is that it lacks creativity and independent thought. AI systems are typically programmed to perform specific tasks and cannot generate new ideas or develop novel solutions on their own.

AI systems are also limited in understanding abstract concepts due to their limited training using specific data sets and algorithms, making it difficult to grasp complex and abstract concepts. In contrast, human researchers can understand and work with abstract concepts, essential for scientific advancement and discovery.

Don’t let fear stop us. Instead, look for strategic ways to embrace it in their business and personal life to be more careful, responsible and innovative. It’s time to embrace the future.
