AI machines could ‘control humans’ and make decisions for us if we don’t act now, experts warn

TECHNOLOGY may be too pervasive in today’s world and could hamper our decision-making process, experts have warned.

To date, most people have used a AI powered device as technology has become ubiquitous in the world

It might be like asking Amazon’s Alexa to set a timer for you or asking Apple’s Siri to check the weather.

In more advanced contexts, AI generates code or calculates complex physical equations for scientists.

However, this widespread use could lead to the technology destroying our ability to think for ourselves, some experts say.

Maria Britton, CEO of Trade Show Labs, told The Sun: “Technology is increasingly invading almost every aspect of our lives, from how we stay in touch with loved ones, to how we pursue transactions banking, to the way we learn and work.

“Our increasing reliance on technology has rendered us unable to make decisions without having access to it.

“We are now so dependent on technology that it shapes our behavior, both on abstract issues like beliefs and values, as well as more tangible aspects like communication habits. Ignoring the power of technology in our Everyday life would be impossible these days.”

Britton’s concerns are shared by many other tech experts who believe technology dictates our decisions.

“We need to ensure that artificial intelligence systems are used ethically and that their development does not lead to a ‘takeover’ of human decision-making processes,” said Greven Carl Manuel of EmojiSprout.

“We must also remain aware of how technology can dictate our lives – through online surveillance technologies, for example – and take steps to protect citizens’ privacy where appropriate.”

Meanwhile, other experts, who recognize that technology shapes our decisions, still choose to see the positive in it.

“We have the technology in the palm of our hands, literally, and we use it to make everyday decisions,” said Walter Lappert, Founder and President of Triad Drones.

“The technology isn’t going anywhere and I’m excited to see how it will continue to advance in the future.”

Similarly, Abdul Rahim, an IT professional and Founder and CEO of Software Test Tips, said, “Technology has enabled us to harness the power of data and improve decision-making, enabling us to make decisions based on analysis and trends rather than guesswork or intuition.”

Still, Rahim highlighted concerns surrounding advances in technology, adding that “it’s not a solution on its own.”

“As with all aspects of life, technology should be used responsibly and with consideration of potential pitfalls, such as privacy breaches, data manipulation and algorithmic biases,” Rahin noted.

On the whole, experts tend to embrace Rahin’s view that technology can go both ways when it comes to helping or hindering humanity in the long run.

“Technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) have the potential to revolutionize many aspects of our lives, but they also bring a number of ethical challenges,” said Ben Tibbits, CEO of Broadband Deals.

Brandon Mackie, co-founder and CRO of Pickleheads echoed that sentiment, telling The Sun: “I think it’s important to remember that AI is just a tool, and it’s up to humans. determine how it is used.

“While AI has the potential to automate some tasks and make some processes more efficient, I don’t think it’s realistic to imagine a future where AI will completely take over.

“Ultimately, I think the key is to strike a balance and use technology in a responsible and ethical way that benefits society as a whole.”
