A.I. has some people SPOOKED. Here's why.


While Artificial Intelligence continues to evolve and become more available, there are fears being shared as well. The discussion won't go away anytime soon. Why do some people fear AI? One of the reasons is the potential for it to surpass human intelligence and take control over decision-making processes.



Fear of AI surpassing human intelligence and taking control over decision-making processes is often referred to as "superintelligence," where an AI system may become so advanced that it can improve itself and solve complex problems beyond human comprehension.

If an AI system were to reach this level of intelligence, there is a concern that it could pose a threat to humanity, either intentionally or unintentionally.

There are plenty reasons to embrace A.I. in business and society today as technological innovations continue to amaze us. Artificial Intelligence enhances the speed, precision and effectiveness of human efforts. In financial institutions, AI techniques can be used to identify which transactions are likely to be fraudulent, adopt fast and accurate credit scoring, as well as automate manually intense data management tasks.





Another reason why people fear AI is the potential for job displacement. As AI technology continues to improve, there is a growing concern that it could automate many jobs currently performed by humans, leading to mass unemployment and economic disruption.

Additionally, there is also a concern about the ethical implications of AI, including the potential for bias in decision-making, privacy violations, and the use of AI for malicious purposes.

It is important to note that AI is still in its early stages, and many of these concerns are hypothetical scenarios that may or may not come to fruition. However, it is essential to address these concerns and continue to develop AI technology in a responsible and ethical manner to ensure its safe and beneficial integration into society.

OTHER A.I. FEARS

Studies show that 34 percent of people are afraid of AI,

while 24 percent think AI will be harmful for society.


Some experts say we need A.I. For example, today, the amount of data that is generated, by both humans and machines, far outpaces humans' ability to absorb, interpret, and make complex decisions based on that data. Artificial intelligence forms the basis for all computer learning and is the future of all complex decision making.

There is a term called Biassed Outcome. Here's what it means. Since AI algorithms are created by humans, anyone who purposefully or unintentionally adds bias into the algorithm technology may do so. AI algorithms will yield biased results if they were developed with a bias or if the data used as training sets for the algorithms was biassed.





AI can appear deceptively human, and experts have warned there's a danger that artificial intelligence tools could be used to manipulate people. The ways AI can manipulate are similar to the ways people manipulate others, using emotional cues and responses to shape arguments.

Scientists attribute this distrust and discomfort to our primal feeling of needing to be in control. With AI, we lose that sense of control, thereby giving rise to fear and anxiety. Machines that can think, act, and react like humans are perceived as a threat.
