The AI in Advancement Advisory Council (AAAC), a first-of-its-kind organization committed to open discussion about where artificial intelligence (AI) technology can and should have an impact on advancement, today released the first State of AI in Advancement Report. The study is the first benchmark on the adoption rate, uses, opinions, of AI in the advancement industry, and more, and comes at a time when artificial intelligence is beginning to revolutionize philanthropy. "We've entered an amazing chapter of innovation and progress with artificial intelligence," said AAAC member Reed Sheard, Vice President for College Advancement and Chief Information Officer, Westmont College. "In order to truly harness this technology in a way that helps us build successful organizations, it will be critical to utilize AI in a manner that always seeks to benefit society. It is important to ask both'What can we do?' as well as'What should we do?'. The early results we've seen represent new opportunity and I am excited about what the future holds."
For decades the concept of artificial intelligence (AI) has required creative interpretations of scientific theory to capture people's attention. Whether it was the overwhelmingly capable character Data from "Star Trek," the humorously unnerved C-3PO from "Star Wars," or any other sci-fi AI manifestation, the fact still stands that intriguing forms of artificial intelligence have primarily been relegated to the entertainment world until only recently. However, the lack of capable forms of AI in everyday life has changed. With each passing year, increasingly complex artificial intelligence models are seeing the light of day. While they may not look like sophisticated androids at this point, many of these are the germs from which more advanced models will ultimately evolve.
Artificial Intelligence is already transforming our lives. We are surrounded by semi-autonomous cars, robotic machines, smart biometrics which are just a few examples of AI used in technologies around us. Artificial Intelligence is getting better and will be constantly evolving and impacting almost every area such as education, healthcare, entertainment, governance, public safety etc. With more adoption and innovation it has the potential to improve the quality of human life significantly. The growing technology gives great hopes for future.
If you have ever watched the Terminator movie, then you have a good idea what this topic is discussing. The movie and other similar arts will reach a point when the technological advancement of man will outgrow him. Some people estimate that this could be as close as in the next thirty years. At that time, human beings will have become antiques. In the movies, the creators always present human beings being in conflict with the machines.
