How Data Science For Good Can Change the World - Thrive Global

People are generally afraid of AI, which is using computational statistics to make predictions. "71% of consumers fear AI will infringe on their privacy." A survey of Americans' thoughts on the impact of AI conducted by Oxford concluded this: "34 percent of respondents thought it would be negative, with 12 percent going for the option'very bad, possibly human extinction.'" Further, 18% were uncertain of the impact of AI, meaning that 64% of people have a negative or uncertain view of AI. However, as reasonable as some of these concerns might be, they're more reminiscent of fear of the unknown and the new, rather than problems with AI itself.
