Artificial Intelligence (AI): What Could Go Wrong?

#artificialintelligence

Elon Musk has warned about the long-term possibility of artificial intelligence can be seriously be harmful to humans. How can Artificial Intelligence be used responsibly? Can things like decency, fairness and morals be programmed into AI algorithms? I think the answer to this is clearly'Yes', but the question is more of whether how can we guarantee that the algorithms that we create will be decent, fair and moral? What is the incentive to build responsibility into an algorithm?

How Artificial Intelligence Will Change Our World, For Better Or Worse Digital Trends

#artificialintelligence

In the last decade, artificial intelligence has gone from a science-fiction dream to a critical part of our everyday lives. We use AI systems to interact with our phones and speakers through voice assistants like Siri, Alexa, and Google; cars made by Tesla interpret and analyze their surroundings to intelligently drive themselves; Amazon monitors our browsing habits and then serves up products it thinks we'd like to buy; and even Google decides what results to give us based on our search activity. Artificially intelligent algorithms are here, and they've already changed our lives -- for better or worse. But this is only the beginning, and one day we'll look back at AI in 2018 and laugh about how primitive it was. Because in the future, AI is going to change everything.
