Don’t think that Artificial Intelligence is affecting your life? Think Again!
Have you been fired in the last two year or so? Did you work for a company that employs fifty or more people and you were only one person in a bigger layoff? If so a computer running a logarithm may have picked you for the pink slip.
Have you shopped at store lately and they were out of what you wanted? Chances are about fifty-fifty a computer predicted the demand incorrectly and you missed out.
Sit at a traffic light in a major city for a ridiculous amount of time? Probably not just traffic congestion, it might be network congestion between you and the traffic light controler.
Did you apply for a job using a resume? Many companies are usng software with intelligent choices to thin the resumes and if you don’t have the magic words that fit the program a human will never see your application or that beautiful resume you spent days creating.
Are you on social media or do you use a search engine?
You probably aren’t seeing what your friends are. A form of AI / Artificial Intelligence may pick what you see based on the data it has collected on you.
If you are in a major city any 911 call you may make could be routed by AI to make calls and responses more efficient. Unfortunately it isn’t perfect.
And you thought AI and the robots were just after your job.
We all need to be more aware of what AI is doing now and how it affects us and I didn’t even mention the smart killing machines governments are pouring billions into.
Best and be blest,
