Artificial Intelligence - Friend or Foe?

One of the human brain's complex phenomena is it contemplates anything, even itself, by analyzing the pros & cons. To understand AI with its total capacity, we need not less than a Super Consciousness. Let us pause for a moment to climb the ladder from Consciousness to Super Consciousness. Our perspective will get a heightened sense of awareness to dissect AI to debate whether it's a friend or foe?

My right brain took the lead to trust AI as a friend. On the contrary, my left brain took the stand to be cautious with AI as it may become a foe at any time. The corpus callosum, which connects the brain's two halves, turned into an unbiased judge for the debate. Let's fire our brain's neural networks to their peak Beta brainwaves (13-38 Hz) for an uninterrupted state of alertness.

The left brain fears that AI will take all our jobs. It justifies that at the current pace of AI's growth, it can replace humans soon in all roles. It takes reference from 'http://www.willrobotstakemyjob.com ' and predicts AI can substitute almost every job soon.

The right brain, by nature, has inclusiveness. It heard the opposite point of view and started its speech. It stresses the importance of AI's growth for our entire humanity and planet Earth. It added with the data collected from all the world's job sites; AI contributes to creating new job openings in every corner of the industries. On the positive side, it's replacing the monotonous, repetitive, boring jobs of the world as of now. Humans are evolving to solve existential problems instead of spending time in mundane activities. Evolution from the start proves one thing as clear as daylight: those who adapt to the changes survive and thrive. It's our time to get acclimated with the changing times towards AI. It is impossible for machines, even with advanced AI, to do a job that involves a human touch. Machines cannot replace Vivid Imagination, Non-Linear Thinking, Captivating Creativity, Intuitive Insights, Mind-blowing Storytelling, Emotional Intelligence, Empathy Experiences, Guided by Guts, Million Layers of Mind traits of humans. Besides these, human beings are constantly connected with the ever-present Cosmic Consciousness, which no supercomputer will have access to it.

The left brain collected all the pieces of information from the speech and tried to fit it into its linear analysis framework. It used its most common fear of AI to destroy its creators, as portrayed by almost all Science Fiction books and movies. What will happen if AI is used to kill people in the military or a terrorist group? The loss will be enormous.

The right brain patiently absorbs the serious question. It speaks from the heart as it's connected with it by nature. It quotes the tag line from 'http://www.futureoflife.org ' 'Technology is giving a life the potential to flourish like never before ... or to self-destruct. Let's make a difference!' The pioneers in AI research already came together to sign a treaty not to use AI in humanity's destruction. Demis Hassabis, the co-founder of Google DeepMind and Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, are among 2,400 signatories to stop AI in automated killer robots. AI is nothing but a tool in what way we use determines its actions. Let's embrace change, simultaneously educate and enlighten ourselves that human lives are more precious than all the available machines on Earth combined.  

The left brain takes a moment to assimilate what it has heard so far. This time it throws up the health challenges like stress, loneliness, depression and suicide are on the rise due to advancements in technologies and AI. Some of the common issues found in our teens & adults due to it are;

  1. Extreme mood swing
  2. Inadequate sleep
  3. Lack of concentration
  4. To harm oneself or others
  5. Sudden weight loss or weight gain

The right brain took notes of the points and started its counterpoints. On the other side of AI technology, there is 'n' number of instances its created revolution in healthcare industries. IBM Watson AI-powered supercomputer's recommendation of cancer treatment plays a critical role for the doctors in Oncology even though it's in the initial stage in learning & evolving. Many companies and NGOs are using the same AI to address the issues caused by its overuse. For example, 'woebot health an AI-powered chatbot' plays a substantial part when addressing mental health. It's competing with professional therapists. Second, many players applying AI like 'http://www.sleeptracker.com ' use advanced AI, BioSensors and IOT to analyze better and suggest new sleeping patterns to track sleep cycles effectively. 

The corpus callosum wants to conclude the debate with the following conclusion. In existential reality, everything has two polarities. Life flourishes in the meeting point of those two extreme sides - which is the midpoint. Let us embrace AI in the proper light. We have to venture into AI carefully, not avoiding it altogether or relying entirely on every decision of our life. AI is neither a friend nor a foe. It's a catalyst for the growth of humanity when used cautiously.
