Artificial Intelligence made progress in 2022 depending on who you ask. 2022 saw the rise of AI created art. Another tool, ChatGPT also made headlines. I used ChatGPT to write a blog post on First Principles. 2023, will be even better according to some people.
What’s in store for 2023? Also, with the current progress should people be scared?
An article from the Guardian looks at how AI created art is affecting how artists work. Can robots create art just like Leonardo Da Vinci? In other words: will AI replace artists?
It’s not just artists, it’s all type of work that will be affected. Yes, AI will replace and eliminate jobs; there’s no question about it. But, the jobs that will replace / eliminate are ones that are redundand and low in complexity. It will be a powerful tool for for jobs that require complex skills such as empathy, creative and critical thought.
One of the main problems is artificial intelligence has many limitations. Here are 5:
- Dependence on data: AI systems are only as good as the data they are trained on. If the data is biased or incomplete, the AI system will also be biased or incomplete in its understanding of the world.
- Lack of originality and creativity: AI systems are not capable of original or creative thought, and they cannot generate new ideas in the same way that humans can.
- Difficulty in understanding and interpreting human emotions: AI systems have difficulty understanding and interpreting human emotions, and they are not able to replicate the emotional intelligence of humans.
- Limited adaptability: AI systems are not able to learn and adapt in the same way that humans can. While they can improve their performance on a specific task through machine learning, they are not able to transfer their knowledge to new situations or environments in the same way that humans can.
- Ethical concerns: As AI becomes more advanced and plays a greater role in our society, there are also concerns about the ethical implications of its use. For example, there are concerns about the potential for AI to be used for malicious purposes, such as spreading misinformation or manipulating public opinion. There are also concerns about the potential for AI to displace human jobs and cause economic disruption.
These are just a few of the current limitations of AI, and it is likely that these limitations will change as AI technology continues to evolve.
AI cannot yet make decisions by itself. What I mean is it doesn’t have free will; it’s decisions have been coded by humans. When your Tesla decides to turn itself on and drive to the beach without you, then it’s time to get why it made that decision. Until then, AI applications have been coded for humans using data to train the algorithm.
At this point, AI is a tool for people rather than a replacement!
From The Guardian:
The kind of artificial intelligence we might imagine replacing artists – an entirely autonomous creative robot capable of human-like imagination and expression – does not yet exist, but it is coming. And as AI becomes more ubiquitous, artists, illustrators and designers will ultimately be set apart not by if, but by how, they use the technology.
Will artificial intelligence replace humans?
It is not likely that artificial intelligence will completely replace humans in the near future. While AI has made tremendous progress in recent years and is capable of performing many tasks that were previously thought to be exclusive to humans, it still has many limitations.
One of the main limitations of AI is that it is only as good as the data it is trained on. If the data is biased or incomplete, the AI system will also be biased or incomplete in its understanding of the world. Additionally, AI systems are not capable of original or creative thought, and they cannot learn or adapt in the same way that humans can.
Furthermore, there are many tasks that are currently difficult or impossible for AI to perform, such as understanding and interpreting human emotions or developing new ideas.
That being said, AI is likely to play an increasingly important role in our society and will undoubtedly change the way we work and live. However, it is important that we continue to develop and use AI in a responsible and ethical manner, ensuring that it complements and enhances human capabilities rather than replacing them.
