“It’s not artificial intelligence I’m worried about, it’s human stupidity.”-Neil Jacob Stein
What is artificial intelligence?
According to Google, it is a term for simulated intelligence in machines. These machines are programmed to “think” like a human and mimic the way a person acts.
Ever heard you’re being hypnotized in the ways you have never imagined of? And when your own being is questioned in the comparison of a robot then? Yes, you are in trouble then.
Having a hot cup of tea every morning before starting your day might take your job at a risk, as robots don’t need coffee to boost up their minds. Well, the boss might be inclined towards A.I rather than I.Q.
A recent study analyzed, in about 20 years from now, robots will take over the static jobs in the average of 70/30 and will leave humans jobless in most of the highly advanced countries like Japan and China. This already has been seen in Nanyang Technology University (NTU), Singapore. Nadine, a brunette hair with the soft-skinned robot has wholly contributed her artificial intelligence to simply prove that she can manage and uphold the tasks in the efficient ways and of course better than humans. This project portrays to be a well exemplary turnout as it narrowed the realm of humans and created places and seats for robots who can look alike humans and work far much better than them with the exceptions of emotional responses. The 1.7m tall Nadine was made by a group of researchers headed by Professor Nadia Thalmann, chief of the Institute of Media Innovation. Nadine is a notable venture created to address labor needs in the regulatory and human services daily – for example, helping the elderly at home, when parental figures are hard to find.
This is a point where humans need to realize and understand the path they are building for their own destruction.
The emergence of Nadine has set marks in this technological world and is proving that robots like Nadine can take place of employees working as receptionists, cleaners, and assistance – they can express feelings, and interact and speak with people to a degree that robots have not already- and thus this depicts a clear threat to humans to worry about their jobs in future.
Subsequently, to some extent the repetitive jobs like waiters, cleaners, and receptionists can remarkably be handled by these machinery bodies, but ultimately human IQ is needed to make them in to capable of replacing a being, from manufacturing to developing and adding advancements by the time, to design, train and repair these robots. So, observers believe that today’s occurring technology will not permanently displace most of the jobs, so much as shift, the jobs into other sectors where creating new ideas and critical thinking are the core of the job, and that’s where robots won’t find their need and get replaced by humans.
Now how and where humans can be called for their workforce? This is where knowledge of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) is important, humans need to evaluate themselves in the sectors of these realms so even after 20 years or so when robots will be the most dominant employees in the world, there will be a broad part of humans manufacturing them.
So in a nutshell, there is no point of comparison but a thought-provoking realization to reserve your seats of employment beforehand and get yourself acknowledged by the science and fiction implemented in the pace of this advanced society.
