Technology And Artificial Intelligence, Which Way Are We Headed?



We live in a world controlled by technologies, Apps and mobile inventions, with Artificial Intelligence (AI) rapidly being installed in almost every device and mechanism; the trend is becoming a “self tech service culture“, hence it is called the ‘jet age’.

Today group of friends can walk into a restaurant, sit in at a section, take a picture of a bar-code on the table, and the menu for the day will pop up on their phones, when they place the order individually via their phones, the order will be sent to the kitchen for preparation with wait time limit sent back to their phones, in most cases the meal when ready, will be auto-wheeled to the table as the bar-code from the table would have signaled the kitchen where the order was taken.

Also after eating, the group of friends can as well pay for their meal from their phones, to the companies account.

Same is applicable in the media industry where Cameras are mounted on a tripod, controlled by a phone or artificial controller.

Companies are building more artificial intelligence (AI) to further enhance the quality of lives, such AIs include but not limited to; ones refrigerator notifying ones milk supplier directly that ones milk is running low. Car tires deflating if parked for more than 10 hours, and auto-inflates back within five minutes of turning on the ignition, the developers claim that the five minute wait period is to enable the tires gain adequate air and the air conditioner to have blown off the dusty air before sending it to the dashboard, which usually causes skin cancer if already on motion before turning on the air conditioner.

Google Glasses, self-driving cars and amazon vision glasses are just the tip of the technological iceberg

Now, in its beauty and convenience, we believe that these developments will further create unemployment in the near future, impoverishing a deeper and dependable society, reducing quality of lively hood for these section of people

However, there has been series of heated argument that the development with apps and mobile phones has improved the quality of living in this millennial era and will further improve it as we live on.

According to a new report from McKinsey, 140 million jobs are predicted to be lost to artificial intelligence; allow me to use a less apocalyptic term instead of a robot, by the year 2025. But rather than planning for the worst and generations disenfranchised by circuitry, experts predict that roles will change along with consumer preferences

Feyi Olubodun, the CEO of Insight Publicis said that the developments in the urban areas will soon not get to the rural areas, therefore, those whose lives will be affected by the jet millennial growth can move to the rural areas and still have a fulfilled life. He argues that it is best to have a controllable amount of staff with happy clients than to have a house full of staff with sad clients and associates

Developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be among the most exciting advances of this century. No longer the preserve of science fiction, from driving our cars to managing our health, the products of AI research are already quietly revolutionising our world.

But warning bells are ringing. John Maynard Keynes coined the term “technological unemployment” to describe how productivity-enhancing innovation can displace workers. This idea was illustrated in the bankruptcy of Kodak – once employing 140,000. The camera giant was superseded by the likes of Instagram, which had just 13 full-time staff when it was sold to Facebook. But while it was once mainly lower-skilled jobs squeezed by new technology, AI could undercut the “knowledge” professional.

A recent study by McKinsey forecast that, by 2025, machines will be able to learn, adjust, exercise judgement, and reprogramme themselves. Computers with AI software like IBM’s Watson can interpret human speech, actions and complex commands, and even learn from them. It’s a leap forward in analytics and systems design, and could transform how firms operate. McKinsey says that, globally, automation of this kind could displace the equivalent of 140m full time jobs by 2025. With substantial productivity gains, employers could save trillions.” sauced: Robertson Cooper

The innovations in apps and technologies has however promoted partnership among payment outlets and they further encourage the notion as the are now becoming the robust transnational mediums, who are gradually eradicating the low level earners such as the; Waiters, Vulcanizes, etc

We however foresee a future where it will no longer be about the low earners, it will grow into medium earners and to managers and till there are no one willing to work for any company.

Do you think the ‘Artificial Intelligence’ on devices and programming will at the long run make life better or impoverish the society and make people lazy, or should it be determined as to what section of life it should be applied
