We all have thoughts about Artificial Intelligence for better or for worse. The month of June brings a challenge here in the Rain sponsored by Kat Palmiotti to write down our thoughts on the subject. Well, someone once said the "clear writing gives poor thinking nowhere to hide". After I post this many may disagree as you may think I have reduced poor thinking to poor writing.
It appears that technology is not something that humankind can control. Once we find it, it changes the world in ways we can never fully understand.
As one who has been slow to adapt to technology, I can attest to that thought. and while I now use some limited technology I personally do not understand it although I can see the need for some of it.
I imagine that it can have tremendous benefits in the medical field with imaging and guidance in surgeries heretofore thought not possible.
There have been news reports of its application in the military, unfortunately at this point, good and bad.
It can have application in business guidance and even perhaps towards a better understanding of the current tax code, which as humans the best we have is a difference of opinion, confusion, or both!
One place where I think it would help me is with auto-correct spelling, grammar suggestions and word choice here in this computer. Since my proof reading could be better and my mistakes huge, nothing like some of the things I do catch from the helpful automatic inserts provided against my will. Sometimes I can't remember what my original thought was, since the suggestions confuse me, ha, ha! Not funny!
As for my home I do not have a "Ring Doorbell" or a "Smart Thermostat" as of yet. As for my car, maybe a warning that my battery is about to fail as I have some bad experiences in that area.
And now you have my thoughts on AI for better or for worse. One thing we can all agree on is it is here to stay. How we control it is another story.
Once again Kat Palmiotti thank you for allowing me to participate.
