How AI Will Shape Our World

While Artificial Intelligence will clearly have a bigger impact than most of us know, I would like to highlight a few areas that I find most interesting. We often hear how AI sounds more like science fiction, though it is very much already here. AI has already replaced  a number of jobs that were once human jobs and will continue to replace more. Soon automation will allow for self driving cars and algorithms will watch the media and write news articles. Taking a look at Tesla’s car factory shows how machines build cars from start to finish from the inside out.

There are already machines inside human brains. Brain implants, for example, have been able to detect and stop seizures, treat Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, as well as others. Soon these brain implants will allow for direct brain interfaces, something Facebook is working hard on, as well as Elon Musk’s new company Neuralink. Imagine a world with no more screens and no typing. You’ll be able to see an interface and type directly from your brain by just thinking. Maybe you’ll receive Facebook and Google Ads on your brain interface, which would be very unpleasing, though possible.

Along with replacing a large portion of the world’s workforce, AI will solve more issues than imaginable, cure diseases, and perhaps answer some of the most pressing questions of our time. With fewer jobs, taken over by AI and robotics, how will the world look? What will humans be doing? Maybe everyone will become an artist of some form, though AI has as well created more beautiful art than most people I know. There are art exhibitions in SF and others cities showing art that has been created by AI. Self driving cars, brain interfaces, robotic surgeries, and art creation. AI is changing the way the world looks and will look. What are some other ways you see artificial intelligence impacting our world?
