Artificial Intelligence: Positive And Negative Implications

1926 Words 8 Pages
Artificial intelligence is a topic that is not on many people’s radar. Some people think it’s a technology that won’t be achieved or mastered until the distant future, and some people think it’s nothing more than science fiction, but people don’t know that this technology is fast approaching, and it could have good and bad consequences. There are people who think artificial intelligence is the future and will have a hand and everything we do, while many other people think it could have disastrous consequences for humans. Artificial does have some negative implications, but it is a necessary technology that will help us in the future. We should continue to progress artificial intelligence even if there are negative implications. Artificial …show more content…
There are many tedious tasks and jobs that humans do that computers can simply takeover. Computers can be programmed to do tasks efficiently and with accuracy. According to Manali Oak, “With artificial intelligence, the chances of error are almost nil and greater precision and accuracy is achieved. “(para. 5). What does this mean? It means the simple yet important tasks we are forced to carry out every day can be done better and faster which will greatly improve our everyday lives. For example, we use truck drivers to transport material every day, but with self-driving cars, transporting material around the country can be done much faster and safer. Truck drivers are good at what they do, but they are still human, which means they can’t stay up 24 hours or be immune to human error. With computers, we can transport material much quicker with less expenses because most computers can function around the clock, which means they can make long trips without stopping, which can make getting products from one place to the other much faster. Many people think that this technology is far away. “In 2004, economists argued driving was unlikely to be automated in the near future…” (Vardi, 5). Uber, a driving company, just tested a self-driving 18-wheeler, and the test was successful. Transportation isn’t the only thing that artificial intelligence can make more efficient.

It’s undeniable that we need powerful computers and calculations to put technology in space and explore other planets, and we will continue to need computers to do those things, and in the future, artificial intelligence will be able to make space travel more efficient. According to John Bluck, “…artificial intelligence someday will help astronauts and robots make swift decisions and plan quickly, without much assistance from home” (para. 1). Space is thousands or even millions of miles from computers on earth, so it takes a long time to transmit information into space. With artificial intelligence in space, it will be easier for astronauts to interpret information and explore things. We can also use robots to explore other planets and moons in depth. Nasa has already sent rovers and satellites to Mars and other planets, so when technology progresses, our exploration of those planets will be better (Bluck,
