AI will naturally be more efficient than humans as it is devoid of human emotions

AI will naturally be more efficient than humans as it is devoid of human emotions… right?

The power of AI unleashed

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has made massive strides since its inception in the 1950s, marking a transformative journey from the early days of the first AI systems that were developed for playing chess. In the present era, AI systems have achieved a level of sophistication that is truly astonishing.

Tasks that AI can do encompass an extensive array of functions, including, but not limited to, the generation of computer code with remarkable efficiency, the creation of original and captivating works of art that challenge conventional notions of creativity, and the precise forecasting of weather patterns. The evolution of AI from its nascent beginnings to its current state is a testament to the relentless pursuit of innovation and the ever-expanding boundaries of technological achievement.

The Answer is deceptively complex

It is indeed the case that these developments instill a sense of fear and apprehension. Funnily enough, the phrase, “AI will naturally be more efficient than humans as it is devoid of human emotions” is actually paradoxical in and of itself. The entire reason AI hasn’t completely replaced us humans in all professional domains is that it lacks emotional intelligence, which is essential for building relationships and understanding complex human emotions such as love, jealousy, and guilt.

Perhaps the biggest field where AI falls short in gaining a competitive advantage over humans is ethics. Ethics are the fundamental principles that guide human decision-making and therefore help us distinguish right from wrong. While it’s true that AI can be programmed with ethical values, it does not possess the capacity to render judgments rooted in moral values. For example, it may not be able to make a moral verdict if a situation arises where a self-driven vehicle has to choose between the safety of its passengers and the safety of pedestrians.

Adaptability is another area where AI cannot imagine competing against humans. Humans are highly adaptable and can learn from past experiences. While on the other hand, AI is constrained by its programming.

Conclusion

To end things on a lighter note, natural stupidity will remain the copyright of humans. But it is this ability of ours to trip and fall, but get right back up and learn from our mistakes is what makes us humans.
