There is no doubt that the phenomenon of artificial intelligence is a fact that is affecting our day to day and very especially within companies, but before applying AI, it is better to know about the advantages and disadvantages of this technological phenomenon, so we listed the pros and cons…
However, although we talk a lot about this phenomenon, information about its benefits or drawbacks is yet to come.
Let’s see what are the advantages and disadvantages of Artificial Intelligence.
What is AI?
AI is a type of technology that basically performs quite complicated tasks such as machine learning, the analysis of certain processes and data and, above all, the most significant advance has to do with the ability to perform functions and have behaviors very similar to human beings. .
- These are the Artificial Intelligence applications of the future
- Artificial Intelligence: What is it, how it works and what AI is used for?
The future of Artificial Intelligence, up for debate
A couple of months ago in the World Congress of Information Technologies, a group of experts in Artificial Intelligence, cybersecurity and human rights were able to discuss the future of AI.
Among other attendees, during the opening presentation Richard Clarke, adviser to some former United States presidents such as Bill Clinton or George W. Bush, explained the profound changes that artificial intelligence is causing on the industry and the business world in general.
Among them, the great dependence that technology itself is generating on society.
The technological revolution that is led by machine learning, quantum computing, 5G and IoT , brings numerous development opportunities, but at the same time generates a series of risks, most of which are unknown and currently unregulated.
- Future robots will have a self-healing artificial flesh
- Kirin 985 SoC benchmark reveals AI score of the processor
- The new edge AI processors from ARM can make IoT cloud-free
So much so that behavior control is being lost, so it is necessary to regulate and establish ethical limits that do not exceed the control barrier.
Other experts such as Bill Gates (co-founder of Microsoft) assures in a recent interview that the lack of knowledge of this type of technology can lead to very serious risks, becoming something “dangerous” for today’s society.
Let’s list the pros and cons of Artificial Intelligence…
Advantages of the AI
1. Errors are minimized
Firstly, through artificial intelligence human errors are reduced. The machines are more accurate and less susceptible to external errors.
2. AI supports numerous sectors and industries
It can be used from the health field, to the aviation or transport sector, etc.
3. Artificial intelligence optimizes to the maximum
In such a way that a machine takes full advantage of the performance, being able to carry out several tasks at the same time, and leaving aside unnecessary functions. For example, autonomous cars.
On the other hand, since we have talked about all the advantages of artificial intelligence, let’s see what the main risks are.
Disadvantages of Artificial Intelligence
1. The increase in unemployment
Keep in mind that if machines are able to perform the same tasks as humans, they will cause unemployment levels to rise.
2. It has a high cost
Investing in artificial intelligence requires a high investment, so it is the largest organizations that are first implementing it in their processes and management.
3. After all, he lacks feelings and values
As effective as this technology is, it is not a human being, and it lacks feelings. Thus, as we mentioned previously, it has no limits and does not know the moral barrier. Circumstance in which if it is not braked it can be very dangerous.
