How artificial intelligence is changing our lives

How artificial intelligence is changing our lives | Malaysian Youth Scene | Scoop.it

In a sense, AI has become almost mundanely ubiquitous, from the intelligent sensors that set the aperture and shutter speed in digital cameras, to the heat and humidity probes in dryers, to the automatic parking feature in cars. And more applications are tumbling out of labs and laptops by the hour.


“It’s an exciting world,” says Colin Angle, chairman and cofounder of iRobot, which has brought a number of smart products, including the Roomba vacuum cleaner, to consumers in the past decade.


What may be most surprising about AI today, in fact, is how little amazement it creates. Perhaps science-fiction stories with humanlike androids, from the charming Data (“Star Trek“) to the obsequious C-3PO (“Star Wars”) to the sinister Terminator, have raised unrealistic expectations. Or maybe human nature just doesn’t stay amazed for long.

Leaders: Get Back to Putting First Things First

Leaders: Get Back to Putting First Things First | Malaysian Youth Scene | Scoop.it

With the evolution of technology we have become grossly more productive.

 

We can read our email while pouring coffee. We can respond to calls on the walk to lunch. Our mobile devices allow us to stay connected to every single thing that is happening every minute of the day. Isn’t it great?

 

It sure is, but would I be stepping out of line if I suggested that all of this productivity is making us wildly unproductive at times. Allow me to explain.

 

Over the past few years as more and more information has been made available and as the on-demand world has led to on-demand people, we have become increasingly unable to spend adequate time focused on the right things.

 

However, we have become so unbelievably busy that we feel like we are working non-stop around the clock.
