There has been a wealth of blog posts these days on the coming storm known as AI…..most of the posts have been how they can improve your blog posts and life.
I am not someone who will ever use this new technology……basically because I like doing my own work and my own research…..but that is just me.
I did not believe the hype around crypto….so I am not buying it around the AI thing.
I have seen many writings on how it can improve your quality of the post you write….but there is a downside that few want to point out….so let me be one of the first.
1. High Costs
The ability to create a machine that can simulate human intelligence is no small feat. It requires plenty of time and resources and can cost a huge deal of money. AI also needs to operate on the latest hardware and software to stay updated and meet the latest requirements, thus making it quite costly.
2. No creativity
A big disadvantage of AI is that it cannot learn to think outside the box. AI is capable of learning over time with pre-fed data and past experiences, but cannot be creative in its approach. A classic example is the bot Quill who can write Forbes earning reports. These reports only contain data and facts already provided to the bot. Although it is impressive that a bot can write an article on its own, it lacks the human touch present in other Forbes articles.
One application of artificial intelligence is a robot, which is displacing occupations and increasing unemployment (in a few cases). Therefore, some claim that there is always a chance of unemployment as a result of chatbots and robots replacing humans.
For instance, robots are frequently utilized to replace human resources in manufacturing businesses in some more technologically advanced nations like Japan. This is not always the case, though, as it creates additional opportunities for humans to work while also replacing humans in order to increase efficiency.
4. Make Humans Lazy
AI applications automate the majority of tedious and repetitive tasks. Since we do not have to memorize things or solve puzzles to get the job done, we tend to use our brains less and less. This addiction to AI can cause problems to future generations.
5. No Ethics
Ethics and morality are important human features that can be difficult to incorporate into an AI. The rapid progress of AI has raised a number of concerns that one day, AI will grow uncontrollably, and eventually wipe out humanity. This moment is referred to as the AI singularity.
Since early childhood, we have been taught that neither computers nor other machines have feelings. Humans function as a team, and team management is essential for achieving goals. However, there is no denying that robots are superior to humans when functioning effectively, but it is also true that human connections, which form the basis of teams, cannot be replaced by computers.
7. No Improvement
Humans cannot develop artificial intelligence because it is a technology based on pre-loaded facts and experience. AI is proficient at repeatedly carrying out the same task, but if we want any adjustments or improvements, we must manually alter the codes. AI cannot be accessed and utilized akin to human intelligence, but it can store infinite data.
Machines can only complete tasks they have been developed or programmed for; if they are asked to complete anything else, they frequently fail or provide useless results, which can have significant negative effects. Thus, we are unable to make anything conventional.
AI is already being abused and as it grows in popularity these abuses will will only grow.
If you are emotionless, lazy and lack any ethics then AI is probably for you….
Me? I will depend on my own brain for the work.godfather of AI has become a skeptic..
Even the “NATO’s continued eastward foray into the Asia Pacific and interference in regional affairs will inevitably undermine regional peace and stability and stoke camp confrontation. This calls for high vigilance among regional countries,” she added.

I would never use AI in writing, but I do worry about its implications for the future. There is a real possibility that it will become ‘self-aware’. If that happens, humans will be in deep trouble.
Best wishes, Pete.
If it ever becomes “Self-Aware” it will be an artificial self awareness that mimics real awareness because the machines, like the humans who created it, are limited in their abilities by the components that make them up –so machine intelligence will always be a mechanical farce that imitates reality. The problem is that it will be able to create artificial realities — those will be welcomed by the paranoiac masses of radical right wingers who already live in a proto-artificial reality of their own devising …The sane among us will view artificial self awareness as a cheap horror movie … great on the screen … but nothing of any enduring significance.
I prefer to use my brain…..Did you ever see the Forbin Project? https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064177/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0_tt_7_nm_1_q_forbin%2520project chuq
I must have missed that one, chuq. I will look out for it.
It is old but pretty good. chuq
Your bullet points Numbered 4, 5 and 6 apply most directly to the right wing radicals so AI will not affect them negatively …those people don’t have real brains anyway so they should become butt buddies with AI real quick ….and as to your assessment of who is emotionless, lazy and lack any ethics — well I guess you got me down to a Tee with that one … but AI am who I am …and I have been being assisted with artificial intelligence long before it was ever invented …Sometimes I think that I myself am a form of artificial intelligence because I do not think like the ordinary person thinks …I am way above any of that petty insignificant useless stuff … I am on a plane of my own …I think that is why very few people are interested in what I have to say — I am surreal —My eccentrism knows no bounds –I can do what I want to do and be what I want to be and I have done almost everything there is to be done and have amassed almost everything there is to be possessed …stop me before I go on a mad rant here …LOL
I have been saying party politics would kill this country….good to know I still have the gift. LOL chuq
You definitely still have the gift.
THank you sir….I do try to be informative. chuq
I am fearful that the ability to steal passwords, enter accounts and for identity theft will become even more sophisticated and threatening than it is already.
Those are valid concerns…..plus we will not know who is writing the posts and comments
