I’m working on a management question and need support to help me understand better.
Read the following articles on Artificial Intelligence. How does it impact our life? Is it real or just the current hot trend? What will humans do in an AI infused workplace? What will be the Impact of AI on Business?
Artificial intelligence (AI) is “wide-ranging branch of computer science concerned with building smart machines capable of performing tasks that typically require human intelligence.” AI is an interdisciplinary science with multiple approaches, but advancements in machine learning and deep learning are creating a paradigm shift in virtually every sector of the tech industry. AI impacts our lives in many ways. AI can help eliminate the necessity for humans to perform tedious tasks. One of the main benefits of artificial intelligence is its ability to reduce the drudgery involved in many work tasks. Repetitive, tedious tasks in any job are the bane of many human workers around the world. When you open your phone with facial recognition that is considered AI. Not only is artificial intelligence working behind the scenes to personalize what you see on your feeds in social media and google (because it’s learned what types of posts most resonate with you based on past history), it’s figuring out friend suggestions, identifying and filtering out fake news and machine learning is working to prevent cyberbullying. In your home having an Alexa you speak to is also an AI device. From driving, to sending emails, AI is in your maps that can tell you commuting time and you can now even request self driving cars to get you to and from work. AI is even in your banking, it can detect fraud and alert a bank quicker than a human ever could. When it comes to military AI is definitely real and here to stay. We already just about all work in an AI infused work place. From getting to work through maps in your phone, to sending emails, and like said in my paragraph above. We as humans use it to get ahead and to our advantage make work easier. AI on/in business at just the right amount will be beneficial, but too much of anything is not good in my opinion and with that said I think a lot of good can come from AI. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>////////………………………………..
The other one paragraph is
Before reading these articles I only had a general idea of what Artificial Intelligence is from the few commercials I see on TV. I never really did any research on the topic or read up on it like I had to do for this assignment. After reading these articles about Artificial Intelligence, I have a better understanding of what it is, and it even exists or why it was created in the first place.
After reading the article, I do believe that artificial intelligence is real, but it only goes as far as what a human being has learned and trained the model or robot to learn and retain what the human being is teaching it. For instance, the robot Sophia seems so human like and there is a video of the robot holding a full conversation as if she is a real person but as the article brought out, Sophia was previously trained to answer those exact questions and to remember what to say. The robot does not have a brain of its own to where it can answer these questions or make decisions for itself. So, people thinking that the Artificial Robots will soon take over the world and human beings will be extinct (I have heard this by the way) is just absurd.
I think that the invention of this Artificial intelligence could be a bit much when it comes to the things like driverless cars. I am not to excited about that certain invention. These model cars do not have the human instincts that real human has that can prevent a crash from happening at the very last minute. They tried to water down the seriousness of the documented crashes saying that in most of the collisions, it was the other driver or pedestrian’s fault. If an actual human were behind the wheel, it might could have been preventable (in my personal opinion).
Everything about Artificial intelligence must be pretrained by an actual human being so I do not necessarily think that Artificial Intelligence will take over the workplace. It will enhance the workplaces in a lot of ways, but a business will never be fully Artificial Intelligently running. Although I said it is real, I do believe it is a trend and will soon die down. There is a lot of pretraining that must go into AI and some people and companies will not want to go through the trouble. Also, some creators may see that the invention is being easily duplicated and eventually something bigger and better will come along.
