A popular plot point for most dystopian literature has been the so-called robot/AI revolt. We have all watched the storyline unfold, whether on the large screen or the small screen, as the AI-driven artificial overlords take over the human race painfully, indeed, and ruthlessly. In the movies, though, the human race still wins. If it exists in real life, we are not yet sure about the result of the AI takeover!
The subject of the revolt in AI is quite debatable. While others have nothing but amazing things to say about the AI movement, there are many AI developers who have spoken out publicly about the kind of negative influence that AI can have on society and called scholars to investigate the social implications of artificial intelligence.
Time and time again, the omniscient, omnipresent, and almost omnipotent strength of AI has been challenged. This technology’s potential prospects can easily be compared to the Pandora’s Box myth. We know, however, what Pandora’s box held. The future of AI, on the other hand, appears very foggy, justifying the dilemma we are facing over and over again, and that is-is AI going to replace all human beings?

AI Takeover: The Start Of The End
AI technology is used today to execute functions ranging from trivial to historic. AI has some absolutely impressive solutions in diverse areas of human life, whether it is optimizing smartphone imaging with AI cameras or financial asset management.
But as AI implementations grow, more and more individuals are beginning to question if the value of human abilities and interactions of various roles will be erased. What happens to a seasoned photographer’s knowledge and memories when all the person carrying an upgraded AI camera has to do is a point and click on the camera? What happens to an experienced stockbroker’s expertise and intuitions when AI is qualified to forecast stocks and assist individuals in making decisions based on that?
Some may say that AI only encourages people to enjoy the advantages of getting years of experience without trying to obtain experience for years. But what happens to simple human principles when the mechanism of acquiring knowledge is wholly eliminated, and nothing stands between the user and achieving the best results?
If you hold all these problems in mind, the whole idea of “AI will replace human beings” does not sound so ludicrous. However, we still have to get to the bottom of the visibly positive and negative impact of AI on culture to affirm or deny the idea.
Automation of AI: Different Sides Of The Same Coin
All have positive and detrimental consequences. So much is apparent. Not an exception is Artificial Intelligence. AI automation’s results vary from highly positive to seriously poor. And before making any conclusions regarding the long-term impact of AI in society, these results need to be studied and examined closely by artificial intelligence developers.
- The Positive Side Of The Coin
The optimistic sides of AI have multiple dimensions, from accelerating mundane activities to strengthening the inner workings of wider industries. For many sectors, the computational and statistical ability of AI has proved to be a valuable advantage. The accuracy of the forecasting ability of AI technologies impacts many sectors in the right way, whether it is forecasting the weather or the stock price. Not only is data mining and forecasting based on that, but AI is also being used for more risky activities such as exploring space, exploring the sea, and much more.
- The Coin’s Negative Side
Since there is a positive side, an opposing side of AI is therefore bound to occur. AI is influencing culture in ways that were previously unknown, ranging from AI bias to social media exploitation.
A severe change in the contemporary human lifestyle has been brought on by the advent of AI automation. The activities that once required manual labor can be completed without a finger needing to survive today. This means that people have more spare time now, and to fill that hole, they are searching for new experiences. This quest for new experiences, though, is better for some individuals than others with some significant social and psychological effects on culture.
AI vs. humans: where do they differ?
Although both deal with cognitive processes such as problem-solving, memorizing, organizing, thinking, and collecting perception, a human mind is often better likely to accomplish these essential tasks. In these activities, the human brain can combine its emotional intelligence, self-awareness, and human experience and give it a flare that is special to any individual. On the other hand, the AI system is still not adequately mature to learn on its own. It also needs to be taught by humans using data sets such that various functions can be done.
AI is an invention of the human imagination at the end of the day. Thanks to human creativity, the full automation of different activities today is feasible. While the question remains whether or not we are going to be substituted by AI, we can rest assured that the AI system is not at all close to reaching the kind of technological sophistication to take over the human race for the time being.
In different sectors, there may not be any definitive solution to the issue of AI replacing human beings. Predictions and observations are what we only have.Before the detrimental influence of it becomes too much, the rapid growth of AI technology requires continuous control and observation of artificial intelligence experts. AI takeover can only be confined to the entertaining storylines of dystopian movies and fantasy universes, with proper rules guarding the consumers.
