Artificial Intelligence (or AI) is revolutionizing the world nowadays, thanks to its many benefits and uses. AI is used almost everywhere, in computing, accounting, finance, medicine, education, etc. And you must have already interacted with it without you knowing maybe; for example, Google Search and YouTube use Machine Learning to come up with suggestions & recommendations based your previous searches and interactions. Many people think that AI can be hazardous and might put the human lives in danger, but it's still very early to think of that as AI is still in its dawn of development, and research is being done every day. I really like this field and I hope I could pursue a career in one of its many subfields. And you what do you think of it? :) Image credit: Toptal

Unfortunately, it can lead people to become lazy-minded. But its advantages and benefits are really huge. ;)

There is nothing wrong as long as it doesnt take our roles as humans.

Yeah! AI should only be just to ease our lives, and not replace people's professions :)

I don't think AI can be dangerous.But, I definitely feel that it is eating a lot of job opportunities.

It is still very early to think of its dangerous sides. It's more like to think of it causing failures as it's still being developed. ;)

I am not sure but I think it has advantages and disadvantages. It was like Robot Sophia.
‘What a strange thing to experience and talk with the humanoid robot?’ I was surfing the internet before and stumbled upon the humanoid robot named ‘Sophia.’...

Yes it does! Uh, Sofia. It's really interesting, but it's still basic in terms of what it is capable of doing. ;)

@EricMcCole I do agree with you. She lacks mobility much of her upper limbs and lack of lower limbs. But I am quite fascinated how she answer random questions.

@Jessabuma Also, I think there should be ethical norms to be abided by when developing AI systems. ;)

The more it advances the more people will lost their jobs. That is one of the cons. It has CONS and PROS.

Yes, sure! Even though it is really beneficial and facilitates human lives, it destroys many occupations. :(

Yes, it's my dream to pursue a career in one of the many sub-fields of AI. Robotics/Intelligent Robots are one of those subfields. :)
