Research Question- Can artificial intelligence replace human intelligence?
The idea of AI’s has been one that has been discussed in the past decades and the idea will get bigger within the near future. Main concerns about AI’s are if they can function like humans and go beyond that. The idea of technology evolving and getting bigger is an interesting one but what comes to mind is, can these self-machines operate functionally and should there be concerns of a dysfunction within these machines? In the present day, we’ve heard about technologies like self cars that automatically drive for you so you don’t have to yourself. The idea of not driving yourself and letting your own car do it for yourself does sound compelling but we’ve seen how these self cars can malfunction even though it’s something minor. Even though Artificial Intelligence has potential to benefit our world drastically in the future, human intelligence is something that got us where we are today. Human intelligence is something that is evolving and helping us even think of the idea of artificial intelligence
Artificial intelligence replacing humans can be a big change in society for both the bad and good. The use of AI’s can be beneficial to do daily activities more faster and efficiently. AI’s can also help people with disabilities and special needs in multiple ways, and it can also help in the medical field with developing vaccines and treatments. We’ve seen the revolution of technological advancements throughout the past decades and how it does have a positive affect on our daily lives. On the other side, it is important to think if AI’s can react the way humans do in some situations. AI’s are functioned to perform a task but a dysfunction can occur when performing one. They also don’t have the emotional essence of a human that can be useful for performing certain tasks. Technology has advanced for the good in these past decades but it is getting more advanced and it’s important to question if advanced technology like AL’s is good for society or not. Overall the notion of Al’s replacing humans is an interesting concept to talk about but it’s important to break down the pros and cons and see if Al’s can function like humans. My project will discuss the importance of Artificial Intelligence and how it can affect our lives in the future. I will break down how they compare to human intelligence and if they can replace it. I will also talk about weather or not AI’s will be safe in our society.

One way artificial intelligence can affect human intelligence is the learning process of the youth. The use of AI’s can unmotivate people from learning themselves as they are dependent on advanced technology to do it for them. Learning gives people the ability to not only access information but be able to do things themselves. A mentor is also important when addressing this issue as one can teach his/her students several aspects of things in life that an AI can’t do. Even though there might be a chance that artificial intelligence can get the job done to teach our youth, it can’t teach them everything. AI’s can be useful for the math and science field but they will lack in the literature field as that’s dealt with many abstract ideas and thoughts. Everyone has a different way of learning and needs different ways to learn. AI can be beneficial but it’s hard to say if it can get the job done for everyone.
Rinehart, Will and Edwards, Allison “Understanding Job Loss Predictions From Artificial Intelligence” American Action Forum, 11 July, 2019
As AI’s are in the works, it is predicted that it will give a drastic job loss rate. It’s predicted that robots will be doing a lot of the work that we usually do in our daily lives. Part of humans do think like robots so it isn’t surprising with AI’s doing activities that we do but it can lead to many humans unemployed. While there can be a significant decrease of job opportunities, AI’s doing activities we usually do can lead to us focusing more on activities AI’s can’t do. That does sound great but people do need jobs to live in general and the idea of AI’s taking over many of the jobs can be a scary thought for many people. They might get the job done better which is great for society but also it’ll hurt society more if people can’t have certain job opportunities because of artificial intelligence.

AI’s can have a huge impact on fields like healthcare, transportation, manufacturing, customer service and many more. For healthcare, a virtual nursing assistant can help and satisfy the patient’s overall experience. Transportation can be improved with self-cars but can take at least a decade to make them perfect. AI robots can work with humans to perform tasks and make sure everything is running smoothly. Customer service can improve with AI assistants scheduling appointments and other tasks which google is working on to do. Virtual tutors can help students with their schoolwork and virtual AI’s can assist educators.

Ai’s can have many advantages for us in the future as they make less errors in processing, take faster actions + decisions, and have better research outcomes. They can also be harmful if someone is controlling an AI and using it for something you shouldn’t use it for or just use it to hurt someone. Another one can be bad calls from an AI as they don’t judge actions like humans do. AI making a bad call can be significant in a hostile situation. AI’s can be more efficient to do certain tasks but the main problem is what happens if they don’t function normally and hurt someone? The big picture is they aren’t humans so they don’t have the emotional essence that we have and can go off the rails any given time.

AI’s are really beneficial for repetitive tasks that can be represented by data but humans are good for abstract decisions, something an AI can’t do. Humans can use computers themselves but an AI controlling one itself is better for accuracy and speed. AI can make minor mistakes that humans usually don’t make and something it can fix.
