Snapshot above was taken from a website presented by Bernard Marr, who is described as having “a passion for using technology for the good of humanity.” By clicking on his name in blue there, you will be linked to his website that you can examine fully, and perhaps even enjoy I chose Mr. Marr’s site because he is a well-known reputable source, “a best-selling author of 20 books, writes a regular column for Forbes and advises and coaches many of the world’s best-known organizations. He has over 2 million social media followers, 1 million newsletter subscribers and was ranked by LinkedIn as one of the top 5 business influencers in the world and the No 1 influencer in the UK.
I also chose his site for example because he is one of the few writers who lists some of the ways AI is already in our lives and makes our lives smoother, faster and maybe a little more accurate instead of simply telling us about simple robots or a child’s learning aid. Here are some of the things he lists:
AI drives online shopping experiences
Artificial intelligence algorithms help make online shopping experiences more personal. (How? AI gets to know your preferences and behaviors to provide personal recommendations and save you time,
AI enhances customer service for retailers
AI supports CS through the use of chatbots. We likely won’t be able to determine if we are chatting with a human or a chatbot in the future,
AI impacts retailer’s operations
AI tech is being utilized for insights that manage inventory to optimize supply chains and delivery routes.
And he didn’t even mention another one – How about AI Facial Recognition Systems to identify criminals who lift your wallet, purse, or the store’s merchandise (and maybe get you into your smartphone?)
But WHAT IS AI really then? it’s making our lives easier now, but are there dangers? Not the fringe warnings about nanobots taking over my brain. if that is happening I don’t even want to know about it Sheesh! I bet you don’t either We had enough false vaccine warnings and people died needlessly to go that route… We’re going to be talking about how our world is changing, how it’s being used FOR us and AGAINST us in future issues, but first we want to make sure you have some basic information. So grab a big mug of your favorite coffee or tea, and . . .
First what is AI?
WHAT ARE ALGORITHMS?
Well … in the movies, you know, um, 2001 A Space Odyssey, The Terminator … YIKES!
