  • Thank you Raman,I was so inspired by you..I never really thought about how AI could useful in helping people and when you pointed out one of your favourite job that AI did was translating words into sign language for deaf children that was really nice hearing and honestly made me very happy.I had a discussion with my friends and I'm not completely agreeing that AI can't be used for good..Yes ofcource,AI can be used for making our lives better....As you stated in the video,AI is indeed something that excites us but also scares us because it is something new and we might not know much about it..The examples you gave really changed my point of view..But,I have still have many concerns about AI like you said AI is being used positively to make an impact 'our life' and 'the world' and also AI can be used in healthcare to detect cancer at an early stage....but how can this be implemented everywhere? What about the cost and accessibility particularly in developing countries where resources may be limited?...Just like 'fantastic_plantain' said I also think there will be end number of possibilities and advancements in the field of AI in the future...Thank you!

    1. It's wonderful to hear that Raman's insights inspired you. In your discussion with friends, what were some contrasting views about AI?

      1. Thank you for asking!During our discussion about AI,my friend expressed was quite skeptical tbh about the potential for AI to be used in harmful ways,both in terms of its potential for causing physical harm and the possibility of it worsening societal inequalities...On the other hand,another friend was more optimistic about the potential of AI to solve some of the world's biggest problems like wildlife conservation like by tracking animals mobility,they can understand their patterns and movements which can help in tracking their homes and predicting the extinction of endangered animal species like in this case she had shown us a piece of news about a new app called Trailguard AI which helps to detect and prevent wildlife poaching...soon new ideas came up like how AI could further provide information regarding climate change on wildlife by developing an accurate plan and that AI significantly assists in preventing illegal animal trade on social media..In the discussion ig the big argument we had was on How AI could possibly destroy our physical health..Many of them said in the future because of AI (including other technologies)could lead to a sedentary lifestyle (or as they named it the couch potato life)and eye strain..We argued back saying that technology(mainly AI) can be used to promote physical health like fitness apps and wearable devices(bands,watches etc)..We also told that this new so-called 'fashion' trend has been accelerating since the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to grow...I also feel it saves the money used for gym memberships because most of the people who take them up tend to drop it halfway and lose their money(because most gym memberships are non-refundable or partially refundable only)...At the end of the discussion i think there were 2 take-home messages
        a,It is also important to consider the risks and challenges associated with its development and implementation.
        b,Maybe not all results of AI are bad or against humans and we just need time to accept the truth AI will be working with us(or for us) and not the other way around

  • First I would like to thank you for the words you have just added to my dictionary. Such as the words Digital inclusion and marginalised communities. Now when it comes to AI we all know that they have the brains to help with many simple jobs. Ai's would be great for things such as Waiters, Farmers, and Cashiers. And yes, although they will benefit us, the opposite will also happen. I know me and many teens are now growing up, and accustomed to getting jobs like Cashiers. So as Ai develops they will force us out of the choices, possibly making it hard for many teens.

    1. Thank you for your comment and I agree with you as AI is creating and doing many jobs in the world. It is making our daily activities easier and faster. And I want to add that AI is also helping students to do their work, presentation etc. But it might lead to bad effects such as being lazy to do the work and giving AI to do it, losing creativity and more.
      I am also a teen and I want to get a nice job when I'm a older. But AI might control the jobs and we might not get opportunities.

      1. Thank you for the reply. I would also like to comment on what you said about us being lazy. Yes, it has been known that more people are starting to work online. A study showed that "The Bureau of Labor Statistics found that around 27% of the U.S. The workforce was working remotely at least part time as of August and September 2022, while a handful of academic surveys have suggested that the number is closer to 50%". This means that Jobs such as Youtubers, Twitch Streamers, and Stock Salers are progressing. A study stated "One of the biggest changes we can expect to see on YouTube in the coming years is an emphasis on more personalized and interactive content. With the rise of virtual reality and augmented reality technology, creators will be able to create more immersive experiences for their viewers". So Yes, I do agree that if Ai advances, teens and all kids will become more lazier.

  • What excites me about artificial intelligence is its ability to reason like us humans and make our jobs easier. We can see this in farming, the introduction of AI -powered tools has increased the productivity 0f farmers. Meaning there will be an increase in the the harvest. Also in education if we have AI powered tutors in remedial classes for the slow learners

    1. I agree because AI these days has been of great contribution in both agricultural and health sectors e.g drones are used to:
      1: Spread seeds, fertilizers and pesticides to a wider coverage in a very little amount of time in agriculture.
      2: In health sectors drones can be used for vaccine delivery in quarantine areas for example during the covid
      - 19.

      1. Great examples of sectors where AI is used. Can you give an example of where AI is being used in agriculture?

        1. There are many places that AI can help in agriculture, examples are: AI machines like tractors used in making ridges, mowing machines used in cutting grasses in the farm can also help to make work easier for humans.

          1. Great suggestions!

          2. Yes,I agree to this,Ai has really been of great help in our society,not only in education or agriculture. It has being of great help to so many disabled people such as blind and deaf people.
            Some Ai voice technologies like Alexa,Siri and echo this can help people who can't move Freely ,do thing without having to go through stress.others are wheel chair, prosthetic limbs and hearing aid.
            Ai has been of help to the blind,their families can keep track of their location with the help of an Ai tool.
            Al is also a security tool,so many house make use of the Ai security tool which can easily identify and spot intrusion.
            And it has been of help to does who leave the kids at home,the can easily see what going on in their apartment.
            I think Ai has really done a lot in our country,this is should also be protected,their should be laid down rules and regulations on how to use them.

            Thank you .

            1. I totally agree with you concerning disabled people. That would be a major breakthrough if we could help these people and make them feel more free and independent. We have seen that with AI people with no movement at all under their neck can use their eyes connected to a computer device to communicate. Also AI can help people that have lost some.part of their body like an art or a leg.
              Prosthetic legs and arms are now so technologically advanced that the moments their robotic arm can do is so similar to a human .
              For all these reasons AI should be totally benefial to them

            2. Nice comment admirable_butterful.
              AI has been of great help to society in various ways. Here are a few examples:
              - Improving healthcare: AI-powered diagnostic tools and systems can analyze medical images, detect patterns, and assist doctors in diagnosing diseases.
              - Enhancing transportation: AI can optimize route planning, reducing travel time and fuel consumption for logistics and transportation companies.
              - Advancing education: AI can assist teachers in administrative tasks, grading, and data analysis, allowing teachers to focus on teaching.
              - Enhancing cybersecurity: AI-powered security systems can detect and respond to cybersecurity incidents faster, protecting individuals and organizations from cyber-attacks.
              AI also improves language translation by using advanced algorithms to analyze and understand the context, grammar, and vocabulary of different languages. It can then generate accurate translations in real-time, making it easier for people to communicate across language barriers. With AI, language translation has become faster, more accurate, and more accessible to people all over the world. However, it is important to ensure ethical and responsible use of AI to address any potential challenges or risks that may arise.Overall, AI has the potential to improve various sectors of society, enhancing efficiency, accuracy, accessibility, and decision-making capabilities.

        2. Where is AI used in agriculture?
          Farmers can use AI-powered systems to detect insects and plant diseases more quickly than humans. For example, an AI-powered system could detect an infestation of aphids on a crop of strawberries, send the data back to the farmer's mobile phone, and then suggest what action should be taken next.Automated farm machinery like driverless tractors, smart irrigation, fertilization systems, IoT-powered agricultural drones, smart spraying, vertical farming software, and AI-based greenhouse robots for harvesting are just some examples.AI's integration into farming is a game-changer for sustainable agriculture.

          1. Hello helpful personality.
            Nice point you really have here though. I strongly support your opinion due to the fact that most individuals now see farming as a stressful and poor man's job but they don't realize the presence of AI has made it more easier and the amount of income people get from being large scale farmers although there may be few risk being beared.
            AI helps in farming in the aspect that not everything is needed to be done manually like in the ancient times. Ther are now machines that help, for example some machines{tractors} in agriculture have been specially designed for spreading fertilizers, watering plants, and even during the period of harvesttime, efficiently help in harvesting matured crops.
            Some AI's even help in accurate collecting of data and guaranteed way of storing and retrieving information which to me, is really a good and helpful advantage of AI.
            Thank You...

        3. Farm management is a very exhausting task in agriculture, but with the emergence of AI it can be easier. For instance, a farmer want to create his planting plan for a new year, but he/she is having difficulties in what type of crop to plant. If the farmer makes use of AI, the AI could make a good plan based on predictions of how the climate of the year is going to be. It could also suggest crops that are in demand in the market i.e crops that will produce more profit, and those crops that will grow well in the predicted climate.

          1. Great ideas. This would be a helpful use of AI.

          2. Good point hilarious_morning, the use of AI in farm management will yield productive results. It will help in agricultural insurance and financing by weighing all conditions involved with the finance of the farm which will reduce losses, increase profit and help the farmer to reach out to potential customers. The capabilities of AI is not just limited to agriculture, the AI knowledge of finance can also be employed in planning of budget, not just for the farm but also for the country, it will give a detailed layout of risks, potential sources of income and will be a super boost in the country's economy. Utilizing AI in the country's budget will cancel errors and mistakes of low budget in different sectors which will go further to achive various SDGs especially SDG 1,2 and 4 which is no poverty, zero hunger and quality education respectively.

        4. AI can help farmers fertilize soils, by using animal waste and rotten vegetables , soils will be naturally fertile for growing healthy crops. Due to humans negligence many waterbodies have been polluted, with the of AI waterbodies can be purified and used for waterng farms. AI can be useful by checking the condition of the soil and knowing what kind of plant can survive. AI can help reseachers find better ways of using pesticide for crops.

          1. I agree because apart from helping farmers with fertilizers, they also help with keeping farm records in their systems to reduce the stress of farmers recording records paper based with can easily be destroyed.

        5. AI has a great use in agriculture. The growth of AI and modern technology is staggering. In my opinion in the near future or right now AI could detect the composition of soil and find out what nutrients may be missing. It can also be used to find the perfect season for vegetables and crops. Currently, AI can also detect crop diseases and find out the possible solution for the disease. AI-powered system could also detect an infestation of aphids on a crop of strawberries, send the data back to the farmer's mobile phone, and then suggest what action should be taken next. With the current rate of growth for AI the possibilities are endless.
          That's my opinion.
          Thank You!

        6. AI can be harnessed in the field of agriculture in aspects such as:
          -Crop and soil monitoring: AI can be used to analyze and use many features to access soil health and crops well-being.
          -Livestock health monitoring.
          -Encouraging precision agriculture, and so forth.

        7. AI is used to develop the efficiency and productivity of the crops being produced from using driverless tractors, weather and price forecasting.
          Farming has always been labor-intensive, and it still involves considerable human help. Many examples of AI in agriculture allow farmers to understand their crops faster, at scale and at a more faster level.

    2. I disagree with you resounrceful_leopard about AI helping in remedial classes for slow learners. This is because, if AI was supposed to be incharge of these classes, they will be programmed to specific tasks, Thus if the students in the class ask questions that is not programmed into the AI, how will the students learn efficiently.
      Moreover, AI cannot convey emotions nor have creative skills, thus if the students are in emotional or creative crisis, hw will the AI help? This increases the chances of the students having psychological problems, and their inability to express their creative side

      1. as you said they would be programmed to perform a specific task and in your own opinion what do you think those tasks would be? I am not disagreeing with you that they have no emotions but it is possible that your data has been put into the AI and it changes its content based on your data will enable better understanding, have you tried looking at this from a different view perspective let's say Google, for example, it was programmed right? and it is an aspect of AI if you asked it a question would it answer you, then imagine a robot that was specifically programmed to carry out educational function, especially for remedial classes.

        1. As you said, Google was programmed, but there might be some occasions where you can't get the accurate information you are looking for from Google; that is the same as AI, since Google is an aspect of Google. Remedial classes are for students who have difficulties in learning, thus what will happen if they don't get the accurate answer they are looking for? AI can't break down information and give vivid explanations better than human teachers.

      2. I agree with you devoted_starfish because AI can only do what they are programmed to do as you said so therefore they cannot pass the capability they were created for and thereby not be efficient for the work.

    3. I am not sure about your point because the slow learners are the people that don't understand right away. So if AI becomes their tutor, the AI won't be able to make the slow learners understand faster because the AI is only limited to what they have in their programming. But if it is a teacher they can explain to the slow learner in the way he or she can understand.

      1. "I agree because teachers have a unique connection with students that AI cannot replicate. Students tend to feel more comfortable around teachers than AI. Moreover, we should remember that AI is programmed and not naturally designed to exhibit emotions."
        AI can help teachers improve education by providing high-quality resources and engaging students in tutoring and problem-solving.

    4. I agree, now a days Ai has been a great help and it is exiting to think about what might come next. Tough the Ai will be more advance and better in the upcoming times, we should be careful how to instruct and develop it as it might become a double-edged sword for us humans.
      Thank you :)

    5. I agree because... Its ability to analyze vast amounts of data, recognize patterns, and make predictions has transformative potential across various fields. From healthcare advancements and personalized recommendations to autonomous vehicles and innovative problem-solving, AI is shaping the future. The continuous evolution of AI technologies also sparks curiosity and drives breakthroughs in machine learning, natural language processing, and robotics. The prospect of creating intelligent systems that can augment human capabilities and contribute to solving complex challenges is indeed inspiring.

    6. I agree with because what you said about agricultural purposes when AI doing the work it becomes easier and it also gives humans time to think.

    7. I agree because... it is true that not all people are fast learners therefore remedial classes for people that are not fast learners will be good. The use of AI in remedial classes will be good because an AI doesn't get tired or frustrated. I believe that when a student gets a vibe of tiredness or frustration from his/her teacher it could have a terrible effect on the students performance and mind. Also AI's are known for their ability to avoid human mistakes and be accurate in all their doing, meaning that if AI were to help students in remedial classes they will avoid certain mistakes which teachers could make that could lead the student astray. Lastly something that makes an AI's remedial classes superior to that of a human is its ability to be mobile. For example a student travelling who's teacher is not with him/her and is having a challenge in his or her learning will be able to make use of an Ai to assist his/her learning process because the AI can be taken to wherever the student wants to go.
      Thank You.

      1. Interesting, do you think there is are any dangers in relying on AI tutors too heavily?

        1. Yes I agree with you that relying on the AI tutors to heavily has dangers/disadvantages . Firstly relying on AI has generally been discussed and established that we are not meant to allow AI take our place and also not be over reliant on them because they were created only to assist us. Also when we rely too much on AI for tutoring, there may be a glitch in the building of the AI which could result in it using wrong languages, inaccurate calculation, or just generally teaching the student the wrong thing. Finally over reliance of AI for tutoring could make teachers lazy. For example a teacher who knows that there is a tutoring AI may make use of it to teach the students but after some time the teacher may begin to abuse the AI by using it so that he/her may cut classes.

  • The field of AI offers numerous possibilities and advancements. Whether it's the potential for solving complex problems, automating tasks, or creating innovative applications, AI has the capacity to transform various industries and improve our daily lives.
    I have enjoyed interview with Raman on AI

  • What also excites me about AI is relieving of stress. Some teachers often waste time marking register and all those works but AI is capable of doing all those things within minutes and will be accurate.

    1. I agree because... aside from assisting the marking registers, AI also AIDS teachers in promptly and accurately grading test and exam papers. I believe that the combination of AI and teacher involvement in the educational system will lead to greater achievements and elevate the education system to new heights.

      1. I agree because... Besides AI assisting teachers in grading and test and exam scripts, it also streamlines the resolution of compilation tasks. This makes it easier for teachers and schools to compile student report sheets accurately within a short period of time.
        Another example is the use of technology in our external exams (JAMB) taken by students to enter universities. This has made it easy for examiners to easily identify issues without difficulties. This has taken the teaching profession to greater height as you've mentioned and has significantly improved the overall efficiency.

      2. I agree because not only is AI helping in the educational aspect but every aspect of life from accounting to farming to entertainment. If we only learn to work together with AI and stop trying to limit its development we would be better in everything we do.

      3. I agree with you polite_king because not only does Artificial Intelligence helps us in the educational aspect and every sector of life from farming , health to entertainment to engineering and many more... If we learn how to work together with Artificial Intelligence, we would be better in everything we do as a result of team work.

      4. I agree with your comment polite_king, apart for aiding teachers in grading tests and exam papers , AI can also help teachers by having zooming meetings when teachers are feeling under the whether. AI can also asisit teacher with making presentations and posters. AI can also help by being evigilaters in external exams , with AI's advanced features , it can easily detect any signs of cheating. Al can also interact with students and help improve their problem solving skills and critical thinking.

    2. I respect your perspective! The use of AI in grading certainly streamlines the method, supplying greater time for instructors to interact with students individually. This collaboration holds a significant promise for advancing education. Thanks for sharing!

    3. Yes, AI also helps in the economy as they aid in the production industry applying very good efficiency when handling chemicals and pharmaceuticals not only boosting production but also boosting health as more and more drugs will be produced.

    4. I agree because... The rapid advancement of AI suggest a future where AI's manage various aspects of life, including transportation and education. This progress is expected to ease human tasks, reducing stress and providing assistance in multiple areas. AI's have the potential to benefit not only individual lives but also contribute to the global improvement.

    5. Motivated elephant, I partially agree with you in the sense that yes, teachers spend time marking notes and they are not always accurate. But AI is capable of doing the work within minutes but they are not always accurate.

    6. Yes i agree but AI cannot just do it by itself after all it does what it is proggrammed to do. Proggramming the AI and Testing it a lot of hardwork and gives proggrammers great mental stress. So what I want to say is that while AI might relieve one's stress, it will give another one more stress.

      1. What do you mean by that? Can you give an example?

        1. Lets take the simplest things as example, scanning items. When items are scanned the price is shown into the computer screen exactly how it was in the tag. Almost all of the price tags have decimal number in it. In proggramming (c), to add decimal number you have to use "float" and "int" is used to write integer numbers. If a proggrammer mistakenly uses "int" instead of "float", then the numbers after the point (.) Wont show, only the integers before the point(.) Will be shown. These simple mistake will cause the company alot of losses. This shows how careful proggrammers need to be. Even the AI that is used to relief your stress needs to be proggrammed perfectly or else it might give you more stress and to make sure this AI is proggrammed perfectly, proggrammers will have stress.

          1. A great example to illustrate your point of view!

          1. A great example to illustrate your point of view!

  • Thank you Raman! It was so interesting! I will definitely follow your advice and talk with my teachers and classmates about AI. But is there a boundary concerning AI? I mean maybe humans should place some limits concerning where AI can go us! If it is for positive development ok, but should we use AI in military purposes?

    1. I highly doubt we should use AI for war or military purposes because although the AI will be programmed to fight, it can get out of control and even turn against those who created them which can cause more disaster than ever.

  • What excites me about artificial intelligence, is that will design ways to help students with learning disabilities to find their footing in their various classes. It could also replace humans in places like dangerous environments like replacing a soldier with AI during a war . AI doesn't get tired and doesn't need to be paid .

    1. You say AI could help students with learning disabilities. Could you say a bit more?

      1. In my opinion,AI can help students with learning disabilities by eliminating the need for reading and writing.Most students find this task challenging,stressful and bothersome.Writing can be eliminated by the use of voice assistants.AI's can also analyze a child's learning process and teach that child based on His/Her strengths and weaknesses.

        1. I strongly agree with allowing _peach. But in my own opinion AI can help students with learning disabilities by reducing the act of reading so many notes for exams which students find stressful. So by including AI technologies in education students can be able to learn and understand more pressing issues and AI can also be of assistance in learning of languages. So AI have the potential to create more inclusive and effective learning environments for students with diverse learning needs.

          I am awaiting other suggestions, thank you.

          1. I agree because AI can help students who find it hard to read by reading out all written text like using voice over, it can help struggling readers. Having speech to text helps the struggling reader to convert his voice to written text. I want to suggest reducing the cost of AI devices making it affordable to less privileged people that will increase the number of people being helped by AI.
            We should consider helping people above profits when setting the price of AI devices. I am excited to see the future with AI devices unleashed.

          2. I just wanted to express my gratitude to Raman Rai for creating such informative and helpful videos. I truly enjoyed the way she explained everything in a simple and easy-to-understand manner, particularly for someone like me. I eagerly look forward to watching more of her videos, hopefully with even more examples that can aid my learning. The bees were undoubtedly interesting, but I am genuinely excited to learn about the other impressive capabilities of AI!

        2. Firstly I really love this video made by Raman Rai, it has made me think about how AI can make this world an even better place in the next decade, thank you very much for this your effort.
          I agree with your point allowing_peach.But I would also like to add up to your point about AI helping to educate disabled people.
          AI can also know perform brain surgeries which means that some paralysis diseases can possibly be dealt with, a living testimony to this is KEITH THOMAS who received a brain transplant after suffering with quadriplegic disease for a very long period of time, so I feel AI can help disabled humans to be almost the same as humans who are not disabled and reduces the risk of discrimination and loneliness, which further leads to crime.
          THANK YOU.

        3. allowing_peach ,I agree with you because Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to greatly assist individuals with disabilities. AI technology can be used to develop innovative solutions that cater to the specific needs of people with disabilities, making their lives easier and more inclusive. For example, AI-powered devices can help individuals with visual impairments by providing them with real-time audio descriptions of their surroundings or by converting text into speech. Additionally, AI can assist individuals with physical disabilities by enabling them to control their environment through voice commands or gesture recognition. By harnessing the power of AI, we can create a more accessible and inclusive world for people with disabilities.

          I would love for you to reply and give me a questions about this subject of (AI)
          THANK YOU

          1. Great points, breathtaking_harp. Can you think of any ways that AI might make the world less inclusive?

            1. Ms. Katie, there are always two sides to a story.There are numerous ways in which artificial intelligence (AI) could potentially hinder inclusivity in our world. One such way is through biased algorithms that perpetuate discrimination and inequality. If AI systems are trained on biased data or programmed with biased instructions, they can inadvertently reinforce existing biases and prejudices. This can lead to unfair outcomes in areas such as hiring, lending, and criminal justice, where AI systems are increasingly being used. Additionally, AI can exacerbate the digital divide by widening the gap between those who have access to technology and those who do not. This can further marginalize already disadvantaged communities and hinder their ability to participate fully in the digital age. It is crucial that we address these potential pitfalls of AI and work towards developing inclusive and unbiased AI systems.

              Feel free to ask any additional questions you may have.

              THANK YOU

      2. Gone are those days when people could not attain good educational information due to their disabilities and peculiarities. Artificial intelligence has made learning exciting and enjoyable for even students with disabilities. In the past, a lot of disabled children didn't find it interesting to go to school because they would be ridiculed by their schoolmates but not anymore. AI has helped build the confidence in them. When we say disabilities we are referring to the inability to perform actively with others. There are children who cannot read and understand because they might be visually impaired, or cannot efficiently combine letters to form words to make meaning. This can slow their understanding ability,but with AI,there are now means of teaching and learning where people who are audio learners (especially the visually impaired)could hear and make sense out of it. Even the mobile devices now can read out text and translate them into audio so they aren't left out. Others can watch educational videos with tutorials other than the regular ones.

      3. It's true that AI helps students in learning and makes their study easier and comfortable. It's also came to great help of the students with learning disabilities. If a student is unable to understand the topic in the school, he can learn it at home by the help of AI. AI comes to great help in summarizing the note for the exam and to complete the syllabus. We can also give voice command if any of the student in unable to write. The most interesting thing is AI never gets tired no matter how many times you make it say the same topic. So, you can learn anything with time without hesitation. For slow learners, AI helps to make the topic a lot easier. You can also convert your lessons in audio format by the use of AI which helps the blind student to learn anything. The most interesting point about AI is that it is your personal teacher. It will never get tired of your questions and will always help you to learn more comfortably.

  • A.I has made a lot of advancements in the evolution and innovation of humanity though it might also prove to be our downfall has caused almost quarter of the human race to lose interest in the daily activities that a person is meant to carry out. So, I would like to ask this question will A.I be our downfall or our uprising.

    1. Firstly, to answer your question charming_artist I will go for the party that says "AI could be our downfall, because humans no longer do anything themselves, please don't get me wrong by saying AI isn't meant to help us in our daily tasks, but what I am trying to say in conclusion is that humans could possibly go extinct because AI is gradually taking over the order of the day.
      So in conclusion we should use AI moderately and not make it do everything for us, but use it in duties that are time consuming and have a lot of risks.

  • WOW!!!!! Raman Rai's point of view is very exciting, and she has definitely changed my point of view when dealing with AI, she has definitely inspired me for the better when using AI. Raman gets it straight to point as she tells us about moderation when using AI.

    1. I totally agree with your point because Raman Rai has a very deep understanding of AI, she also said that we should not let AI get the best of us rather we should get the best out of it .I feel we can get the best out of AI by using it as a support, but not to replace human creativity and also Raman has captured my attention with her video and has won me over to the side of AI . I am open to other suggestions.

    2. I agree because... Raman Rai has indeed inspired us by showcasing the positive impact of AI, alleviating concerns and encouraging us to embrace its potential. Her examples such as a AI detecting cancer earlier than humans highlight its significant contributions to fields like healthcare.

  • Thanks a lot. You have really changed my vision on AI. I totally agree with you that we need rules and regulations to use AI. We need to maintain protocols while using AI so that we can ensure the safe use of AI. I think now we need more than ever to make a proper rule of using AI alongside developing AI. I would like to request those who are working on building and developing AI to make a protocol to safe AI from going in the wrong hands. It's our duty to make the best use of AI without making it harmful. And it's really important for us to learn the basic of AI before making any comments on it. It's the nature of us that we can't accept change easily. But now it's time to accept the change and move forward in the era of AI making the best use of it.

  • What interests me about AI is that; AI's has the potential to carry out tasks effectively, they improve productivity and also make our lives more convenient. AI's can also be of great help in creativity such as art, music and writing etc. And finally the usefulness of AI lies in it's ability to improve income, help in difficult issues, and also enhance safety and security. ( When I say enhance safety and security I mean that AI can be used for surveillance, facial recognition, and fraud prevention).

    Thank you.

  • So from this video I came into a conclusion that AI can be used in both good and bad ways. They can be used to solve difficult problems. But at the same time can be used to do bad works. Another thing if they solve problems for us won't it make our brains lazy?

    1. I agree because if we start using AI everywhere we might lose our creativity and when everyone starts using AI to get the answer...Every answer will look almost the same because it was generated by a machine and AI only provides answers according to the data which was already there/fed by somebody...We must not forget it doesn't have it's own creative minds like human and it lack the ability to think of the box or feel emotions..But it all depends on us if we are ready to accept the change like 'joyous_piano' said and use it for the positive improvement of our lives..Thank You!!!

    2. In my perspective , I feel it is based on our use as humans that determine whether it will make us lazy or not ; because , it was created as an aid to minimize human error and ensure a safer working environment ; but not to completely leave all the work to AI's.

      1. But not all people think like us. They don't really think about their consequences. They will think they are made to solve our problems. Just like some students are using it to write essays.

  • Hi
    Indeed RAMAN has made me think differently about AI. Before when the rumor about AI spread everywhere, I keep hearing about AI, i thought its something that I can never have anything to do with, something that will never make any sense or get my attention. At a time I heard about this program and decided to try it out despite the fact that I had no much knowledge about it, then the interview with Raman opened my eye to a lot of things that I don't know about before. Indeed Raman is a role model, I really do admire what inspired her to be what she is.

  • What surprise me about AI is how it helps artists in the production of arts.
    AI is changing artists approach the creative process. AI is revolutionizing the way people make Art. By providing news tools and techniques for artists. It's transforming the creative process in a way that were previously Impossible.
    One of the most significant impact of AI on art is actually the ability to process and analyze vast amount of data. In this way, AI is helping to expand the boundaries of what is considered art and enabling new form of creative expression.
    However as with any disruptive technology, there are concerns about the impact of AI on the art world, for example, some argue that AI art is not actually Art and that the technology will ultimately replace human artists and graphic designers.
    The rise of AI in art is a fascinating development that is transforming the creative process in many ways, while there are concerns about the impact of AI on the art world. This technology has shown to provide benefits by making artists with new tools and techniques that previously don't exist.

    1. I disagree because... Art can be defined as a way of expressing one's feelings which AI or robot could not assist with, unlike we humans we have the ability to express our feelings through art. This creates a big gap between humans' capabilities in art and that of AI, though AI makes good artworks but it's still not as good as the original.

      1. I strongly agree with you industrious_shark because.... Art can also be defined as way of life.
        And as you have said AI can't create artworks based on emotions because they are programs, highly sophisticated programs so how can AI create artworks based on emotions they lack the ability to feel,but we humans have the ability to feel and create artworks based on our feelings or emotions also AI can only perform task on what they have been programmed with or what they have processed from another website. Artworks created by humans can also be used to teach and impact values and believes into someone's life. So as u have said AI can create arts but can't be as original as that of a human.

        Thank you

      2. But at one day they will know which paintings please humans and would also know the meaning of emotions. So they can make art that will go famous. Brain is nothing but an ultra complex organ. If you read about emotional brain, you would know we built emotions from brain mutation. Which we cam use in AI to make them have emotions.

  • Thank you so much Raman Rai for the information. My whole mindset about AI has changed to a new perspective that there are many people working, sharing their knowledge and bringing up AI solutions. One thing that excites me about AI is that it is always available to answer your questions anywhere, anytime and anyday. There can be always worries about AI because most parents think that modern day AI can corrupt the minds of their children but every issue has it's solution. Students can be taught how to use AI and say no to using it for negativity. Thank you

  • Rama's submission excites me, and I acknowledge that AI has the potential to boost productivity across a variety of industries, including those in the fields of engineering, sports, and health. My initial perspective on the fact that the dependency on AI regarding the future of jobs leading to redundancy in several professions has immensely changed after watching her interview. I have been enlightened about the fact that AI has rather been introduced to make jobs easier, and I cannot imagine a world without AI.
    Nonetheless, there's this pressing concern lingering in my thoughts: how will the use of AI tools in the educational sector, especially for learners, help improve and inculcate requisite skills in their educational pathway as the majority fall on these tools to solve their assignments? Isn't it rather deterring their ability to be creative or their reasoning skills? I hope that all stakeholders will ensure that the use of AI among learners to aid their education is rigorously monitored. For instance, educators and parents could hold regular pep talks aimed at raising awareness so that we, as learners, can recognize the appropriate use of AI in aiding our studies rather than completely relying on it.

  • My mindset about AI has been changed thanks to Ram Rai interview, now I know the bring of AI is going the world for the better. AI can help advanced education for students and improve cures and treatments for diseases and ill patients. AI can help humans with climate change by spreading awerness. AI can help improve students writing skills . AI can help researchers find why in stop carbon emissions. AI can help humans build ecosystems by planting more seedlings. AI can also help humans find better ways to recycle plastics and wastes.

  • 1: What excites me about AI (Artificial Intelligence) is that It can do a lot of things, just like a human does. From answering complex questions and supporting DIY to helping doctors research and do surgery .
    2: There are real worries , But also great opportunities . Despite all this benefits , we should not forget that AI has dangerous potential , and business is not our only concern . So keep in mind what AI do for us , but the good and bad , and we'll be more prepared to embrace a future where anything can happen .
    3: Many jobs in AI require a bachelor's degree or higher. For some entry-level positions, you may only need an associate degree or equivalent skills and work experience. Often, AI professionals obtain undergraduate degrees in computer science, mathematics, or a related field. And my mom always tells me this everyday because you need self esteem and there is no one that can be you , so be yourself (e.g. So one day I was doing my class work and I was not too sure about by skills so I peeped into the persons not and I wrote the persons answer , when the teacher marked it the answer I cancelled was the correct one , so I had to start believe in my self) so don't let anyone tell you what you are capable of , because I trust you can do it . And if you tried it once and it failed keep on pushing because it is not the end of the world , if it is your dream chase it because you will make it .

  • Raman Rai's presentation has greatly improved my opinion of AI. Prior to watching this video, I held the belief that AI was a awful innovation for humanity. However, after looking at rai's perspective, I now realize that while AI may have it's drawbacks, it also offers several advantages. I am grateful for this experience thank you.

  • After watching the video she made me realize that AI has a lot of job opportunities and career choices for people. I also got to understand that before we make comments about AI we should have an in depth analysis of it and also we should have had an opportunity to communicate with it and use it before judging it. I've also learned that its exciting to work and have a relationship with AI. The thing that excites me about AI is its ability to create innovative solutions for various problems and also help humans in their various job fields. For example, now there are AI that have been produced to assist teachers in things like making results, attendance registers and making lesson notes. It can also make the learning life of students with learning disabilities much easier and interesting. Also AI has helped a lot in medical sector as they help in making more accurate diagnosis of various diseases. I believe that the combination of human effort and AI would lead the world to greater level of achievements and enable this generation of human race become more efficient.

  • What exites me about AI is how it helps in the healthcare sector; how it helps doctors.
    AI has become a large part of our lives on a regular basis and its presence in the healthcare sector will only add to the list of how technology has made life easier.
    Here are some of the ways that AI has been helping doctors;
    1. Detect diseases early on; AI has been very successful with the early detection of various diseases such as cancer. Radiology results have long presented a challenge to healthcare providers for two reasons
    •Accuracy
    • Accountability.
    2. Elderly care; a large part of growing older is dealing with various health issues. Monitoring health conditions has never been easier with recent technological advancement have been made in the world of AI, with human design been produced that can interact socially with these older patients and help them stay cognitively strong.
    Hence, AI is not here to replace physicians care but improve it. AI, afterall, would not be possible without the help of a physician. Embracing new technology in the part has proven to be advantageous. Allowing a computer to take part in your may be daunting to start, but the extensive benefits will soon settle any prior misgivings.
    Other way in which AI help doctors are;
    • medical imaging analysis; analyze medical image e.g X-rays.
    •Clinic decision support; AI can analyze patients data.
    Although, the use of AI in the healthcare also encompasses ethical challenges. Accountability plays a very crucial role in the medical sector. AI trains itself on on input data provided, we can hardly understand how it will provide results.

    1. AI are capable of treating human beings but at the same time, they are not. Humans can keep learning as much as they want until they eventually die. Robots only work and know with what is imputed into them, therefore humans may possess as much medical knowledge as they want to but AI can only perform according to what they are programmed to do which makes humans far better than robots when it comes to the field of medicine.
      Thank you.

  • The interesting and exciting part about AI is able to use its various teaching ways to help the ones who have a little difficulties reading. Keep in mind that students are often regarded as 'failed' or 'below average' because they cant learn the regular way like your class toppers. Some students have a hard time learning and artificial intelligence helps to entertain them and give them knowledge at the same time.
    Thanks and i would answer your questions if you are curious.

    Thank You....!

  • I am very thrilled about AI because of its ability to think and reason like humans, it makes jobs and work easier. Well AI these days have been of great help to us humans in sales and marketing, in agricultural, in the health sectors, product and service development and etc.., according to my research 64% of businesses believe that Artificial Intelligence increases productivity and etc.., meaning that AI will be of great use and in education as well.

  • What amazes me about AI is how it has grown the ability to reason like we human and makes our jobs easier and a great help to many companies which i am thrown to when i remember that saying "As I visualize a time when we will be to robot what dogs are to we human.
    I am strongly rooting for machines.

  • Yes my view towards AI is changed due to the various discussions done in this topic. Initially I used to think AI just as a machine with limited accessibility. But is has developed a lot in a period of time that it is now able to do the jobs that are considered to be impossible for humans. In many cases they have already replaced human manpower due to their efficiency and accuracy. We have been hearing that AI are being used in metros these days. There is less chance of mistakes in work done by AI that makes them more convenient in any sector. But the points to be considered lie here that AI were initially developed by humans and they are being modified by humans only. So, we can say that AI are being more advanced day by day due to humans and it will be unfair to say that they can replace humans in terms of creativity.

  • Raman tells us about the dual nature of AI, saying that even though it possesses many threats, it has incredible utility. Raman makes me feel that it is okay to worry about the future challenges, but it's important to recognize the positive impact AI has on our lives, which helps balance the perspective. AI is a valuable tool that simplifies life by making everyday tasks easier. So I think we should also take a moment to appreciate how AI comes in handy in times of need. Ultimately, the role AI plays in our lives is shaped by our choices and responsible usage.

  • Ai might taking jobs but they are creating jobs like data science.

    1. Can you give an example?

      1. What do you mean
        By giving an example do you want me to say what jobs are they taking? Are you asking me what jobs they are making

  • I am excited about AI. there are rules that have to be set to guide the use of AI such as banning hackers from using AI and not using AI to commit crimes. AI offers a lot of benefits than risks. It can help make your work a lot easier, improve farming and help in education.
    In the case art, AI art comes from real artists work and this is like coping without permision and cause the artist to loose money. There are also deep fake video made by AI used for crime.

  • I have learnt new things about AI thanks to Raman Rai, she has taught me AI can help with healthcare detecting. If there are cancerous cells in the body it tells you if you have one. AI can also help the deaf children translate words into sign language so they can understand better. It’s also important that we have rules using AI. We need rules so we can feel safe about AI. I have learnt so far coding is the language of machines.
