The Age of A.I. with Brian
Ease of using tech with AI
Today, AI is used to recommend what you should purchase next on the internet, to understand what you say to virtual assistants like Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri, to recognize who and what is in a picture, to detect spam, and to identify credit card fraud.
“I can relate with artificial intelligence. Otherwise, you know, people have a lot of at least I had a lot of resistance. So every time I think of artificial intelligence, things that come to my mind that I’m really not good at our technology. I’m not good at coding this and that, but what I’m really comfortable with is using my smartwatch. I’m very comfortable with using this camera and having the conversation with somebody.”
That is the major advantage of having AIs in daily life. A command to the voice assistants and you have everything you need to know. AI can be beneficial to society if it is applied responsibly.
However, as with any new technology, there is a significant risk that commercial and government usage could have a negative effect on human rights. Large quantities of data, both about individual and collective actions, are frequently generated, collected, processed, and shared in applications of these technologies. This information can be used to profile people and predict their future behaviour. Although some of these applications can seem innocuous, such as spam filters or recommended products for online shopping, others may have far-reaching consequences and even pose unparalleled challenges to the right to privacy and the right to freedom of speech and knowledge. AI will also have an on the exercise of other rights, such as the right to an effective remedy, the right to a fair hearing, and the right to be free of discrimination.
