A Life Without AI is Something Beyond Imagination in this 21st Century

 A life without AIIs it possible to lead a life without AI? Can we deny the immense benefits AI offers human life today?

The history of artificial intelligence (AI) has been full of ups and downs, where periods of waning interest and funding known as “AI winters” limited its extension into real-life applications. Without the persistence of those early scientists, AI would not be where it is today, an integral part of our daily lives, facilitating scientific advancement and making our lives easier and more connected. The potential of AI appears to be limited only by our imagination and the power of computers.

While the benefits are clear, so too are the controversies that surround this technology. On the one hand, we use and interact with AI daily, often without thinking about it. But there is still a hesitancy to fully embrace it, with comical dark visions of machines taking over the world through the ethical dilemmas that exist within the field are far more pressing and substantial.

Without AI, there’d be no Waze or Google Maps to show us where to go. There would be no Siri or Alexa to handle our Google searches or schedule a meeting with the CIO. AI already does a lot of the thinking for us. It’s been telling us what to do for years and we listen to it because we know it’s right. We could argue this makes us lazy, but the fact remains that AI has also liberated us from life’s mundane tasks, giving us more time to create, to think deeply about business and societal problems, and to solve them in new and exciting ways – or eliminate them. 

There’s no doubt the smart techies among us will also create Artificial Neural Networks that can think and act like humans. Once that happens, machines will analyze complex, real-time data and decide what to do for themselves. We may have no choice but to accept their decisions unless we want to spend decades analyzing data that AI processed in seconds. 

We can no longer deny the immense benefits AI offers human life today. In the amount of time it takes Waze to calculate a route, AI algorithms will predict natural disasters so response teams can act faster and more effectively to minimize impact. AI will analyze your family’s medical history to create a personalized treatment plan and improve your chances of recovery after your smartwatch told you to see your doctor because you were at risk of a heart attack. 

The existence of AI today was inevitable and is quite literally evolving before our eyes. However, instead of fighting it, we should seek to enhance its benefits, knowing its limitations and therefore push for regulations that ensure our safety.

It will one day surpass us, becoming more efficient in its thinking, discovering patterns hidden from us, and developing enhanced abilities in forecasting. The real “breakthrough” will come when AI, itself, begins to design new, more effective AI algorithms.

Just as AI learns about the world, we too are learning about how it thinks. By drawing the correct conclusions from current experiences, we can establish an order that ensures AI does not become a threat but a very useful aid.

AI has given human intelligence room to breathe and expand, to maximize its potential. In today’s fast-paced business landscape, cloud computing, Software-as-a-Service, and process automation reduce the admin burden and provide insights and visibility needed to cut through complexity and remain competitive. AI transforms how enterprises manage their people, processes, and operations to offer enhanced customer service, boost productivity, and propel their businesses forward by using innovative technology.

Human intelligence and artificial intelligence are complementary, symbiotic, inseparable. They need to coexist to light our paths to a more enabled future.
