Will AI Take My Job?
Tech watcher Jason Smith explores the ethical dilemmas that AI presents us, including replicating human bias on race and gender. Plus, what future for the workforce as we know it?
As a society, we are becoming increasingly surrounded by artificial intelligence. It may have navigated you to work this morning, or given you a recommendation for somewhere to eat. What we can do now with the phones would have blown our minds 20 years ago. While it’s hard to predict the future, this technology is likely to fundamentally change our societies forever. With the positives come the negatives. AI may take your job. It often replicates human bias. How do we guard against that?
Studying advancements in AI is both a profession and a passion for Jason Smith. In this two-part series, he explores the potential risks and opportunities artificial intelligence brings and what choices we need to start making to avoid a dystopian future.
In episode two, Jason explores the ethical dilemmas that AI presents us, how it’s susceptible to race and gender bias and asks what future for the workforce as we know it?
