Recently, I was reading about the buzzwords of the twenty-first century, ‘Artificial Intelligence’ and ‘Machine Learning’ and as a tech enthusiast, I was fascinated by observing how these technologies are developing at a rapid pace and are likely to change our future. The creation of computer systems that are capable of doing tasks that traditionally require human intelligence, such as problem-solving, learning, and decision-making, is known as Artificial Intelligence (AI). Machine learning, natural language processing, and computer vision are a few of the subfields of AI that allow computers to study data, spot patterns, and make predictions. AI will have a significant influence on our future. It is revolutionising industries like healthcare, where it aids in disease diagnosis and drug discovery, and in transportation with self-driving cars. In finance, AI algorithms enhance trading strategies and fraud detection. Moreover, AI-driven chatbots and virtual assistants are changing customer service. AI is changing the course of our future. With heavy dependance on AI, a major problem and bane that is coming up is unemployment and the gradual death of creativity. High dependence on bots will lead to AI negativity including potential job displacement, algorithmic bias, privacy concerns, and security risks. Automation by AI may result in job losses, while biassed algorithms can perpetuate discrimination. Privacy will be at risk due to extensive data use, and AI’s complex nature will possess security challenges. Ethical dilemmas will emerge in autonomous systems, and unequal access to AI benefits will worsen economic disparities. Overreliance on technology will lead to loss of control, and the environmental impact of AI training is also a concern. Additionally, excessive use of AI will dehumanise interactions and services. Hence, ensuring responsible AI control is crucial. As AI becomes more integrated into our lives, we must establish strong ethical guidelines and regulations to guarantee that it serves humanity’s best interests and values.
