AI: Life in the Age of Intelligent Machines

The future is artificial intelligence (AI).

In the coming 50 years all people will be impacted by AI.

AI is based upon computing massive amounts of data. In fact, that articulates its basic purpose: understanding massive amounts of data and complex systems.

AI is just algorithms being executed in clever ways.

It’s difficult to predict all the ways AI will make life better in the future.

But the downside includes the amount of human labor that will be replaced.

How we will manage the disruption needs to be figured out.

Furthermore, the systems themselves are prone to compromise.

The more we become reliant upon AI, the more vulnerable we become when those systems are attacked or disrupted.

We need to think about the ethical deployment of technology.

It’s impossible to predict all the ramifications of AI.
