Will AI transform the emerging world?

The Economist front cover

Look at this front cover of The Economist magazine.

The “emerging world” refers to countries and places that are still growing and developing.

These places may have challenges, like not having enough resources or opportunities.

People in these places strive for progress and positive change within their communities and nations.

Experts believe AI could help countries in the emerging world to become more developed.

For example...

Festival-Square-Photos-1

Farmers in India are talking to a computer that understands their words, even if they can't read, to find out how to get support from the government.

Festival-Square-Photos-2

Students in Kenya will soon be chatting with a computer to get help with their homework, and the computer will get better at teaching based on what the students ask.

Festival-Square-Photos-3

In Brazil, scientists are trying out a smart computer that helps doctors take care of patients, even if they haven't had a lot of special training.

  • AI has the potential to transform the emerging world in many ways. In the future AI may have a huge impact in healthcare! We may see advancements in robotic surgery and maybe even drug discovery. The possibilities are exiting because AI has the potential to revolutionise health care! Do you agree?

    1. Can you find an example of AI being used in surgery?

      1. Hi Tiff@topical talk
        Artificial intelligence has applications in robotic and laparoscopic surgery.

      2. I think AI could be used in surgery so they can identify the infected areas and tell them the easier and faster and the most harmless way to complete the surgery.
        Thank you.😁

        1. Hi dear pioneering_impression. Your idea is appreciated. However, I don't think AI can help in surgeries because if they have been programmed to do a surgery on only one part of the body and there is another problem, how will they be informed? If a human doctor was doing the surgery, the doctor will detect the issue and tell the family members so that they can think of having a surgery on that issue. Also, if the robot performing the surgery malfunctions at an emergency surgery, just imagine what will happen. For example, when a woman is about to give birth immediately and there is no doctor and the robot malfunctions, imagine the pain they will go through so I feel that AI is not the best option for surgeries. You also said that it will make it easier and faster which I don't also agree with because even if they do it within 30 minutes and they don't take their time, what is the main purpose. It will then cause them to miss out issues that should have been done properly
          THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING MY COMMENT.

          1. What rules could you put in place to make sure humans and AI work together safely?

            1. I think the rules that should be put in place before an AI should be able to collaborate with humans Is that AI should undergo thorough testing, programming, and interact well with people like Siri, Cortana, and Alexa. This ensures that AI is well-equipped to work with humans.
              Thanks😁!

              1. "I agree that AI needs to undergo some tests and have real interactions with humans to ensure it can provide accurate and positive information. 😊 As you mentioned, Siri is a good example of AI that interacts nicely with people and provides accurate information because it undergoes testing. However, Siri, Cortana, and Alexa have their flaws when it comes to answering questions, especially if the questions are inappropriate or beyond a user's age range. 🤔 This could be harmful to their growth and development. Thank you for highlighting the importance of establishing rules for AI before its interaction with humans. 👍"

              2. I agree with your comment, AI was created to support to humans and help humans to improve in areas where they couldn't, AI voice assistant's, Siri, Alexa, and Cortana can help students with disabilities interract with their peers and teachers smoothly. AI voice assistants can help deaf students repeat every lesson the educators teaches. AI can translate the mute students writings' into words into voices allow them to express their opinions freely. AI can also help assist students with solving advanced questions'. AI has advanced to the extent that humans can express their emotions and opinions to AI bots. AI can help students with advanced essays and help prepare timetables for students to enjoy homestudies. AI vioce assistance can also help teachers by reminding them about meetings and time for thier next lessons. AI can help teachers prepare presentations and help with students report card's , this releases stress for teachers. In my opinion I believe AI is help humans advance and understand their capabilities and help them do things and activities they could never do.

              3. HELLO!
                I agree AI is not supposed to be harmful to the environment but to make the environment a better place. But some people use advantage of AI and do bad things.
                THANK YOU!

              4. I agree because, without any testing, their might be a glitch during use, which can cause harm. As you said, it needs to be tested through interaction with humans so they can know how to cooperate with their mental and emotional minds. If they are not tested with humans, they can show information, but not for some children of certain ages. Thank you.

              5. Moreover, I am of the opinion that due to the fact that sometimes online sources are of low credibility and in some cases can even contain information that could be used adversely, AI should be checked thoroughly and programmed in such a manner that the intake of information is from dependable and reliable sources.

                1. AI cannot currently distinguish between reliable and unreliable sources of information. Do you think this is a reason for it's development to be slowed down?

            2. Thank you so much for this mind-blowing question.

              I feel that for AI to work safely with humans, there must be a way that programmers would code them to be humble to their perfect position so that they do not become too authoritative or else users might find an issue with the bot and take it back to the programmer which may be stressful for them to recode the bot. In the case of a surgery, AI bots can be used as helpers to the doctor instead for allowing the bot to do the surgery by itself. For example: the bot can be handing over the items needed like giving the medication needed but not in replacement of what a nurse will do but rather to assist the doctor when the nurse is unavailable and nurses too have a lot of work to do so they can go and rest at home for a few days whiles the robot works and when their days that are supposed to be spent at home is exhausted, the bot can be either charged, be updated or can be on shut down whiles the nurse is now working.
              THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR GIVING ATTENTION TO MY COMMENT!!

            3. Hi Tiff!
              Some rules that should be placed so humans and AI can work together include AI bots being sent for regular testing and checking, humans being trained on how to work with robots in workplaces, robots not harming humans and more. Human employees should be given lessons on not interfering with or hacking robotic systems. Further, employees should be educated about not to misuse AI for their benefit. Robots should be handled with care as they might hurt someone if broken, so proper measures should be taken to ensure no robot is being treated roughly. Another rule that can be put is robots following the orders given by humans except when an order might not align with the company's rules. I think some rules such as this might be helpful to ensure a safe working environment between humans and robots.

          2. i strongly agree. if the robot malfunctions in an important surgery ,then the patient could be greatly injured or worse so his/her family might sue the health company making a degrade of the quality of the equipment. this may lead to more failed operations which will lead to the company being bankrupt.

      3. Hello! Tiff@ Topical Talk
        Here is how AI can help in surgeries
        AI can be super useful in surgeries because it can give doctors the right tools and teach them how to use them, especially if they're still learning. For example, if a doctor isn't sure how to use a tool during surgery, AI can provide instructions or even control the tool itself to make sure everything goes smoothly. This can help doctors perform surgeries more safely and effectively, which is really important for helping people stay healthy!

        1. I would want to ask you polite king
          Can AI really help doctors in their surgery when they were really programmed them for the surgery they are doing or carrying out to the patient?
          Also in the test I wrote I was made to know that AI cannot be used for medical surgery.
          Thanks

          1. In response to your question, I believe that artificial intelligence has the potential to greatly aid in surgical procedures, provided it is appropriately programmed and integrated into medical practice. When used effectively, AI can enhance surgical precision, presently we can see from the new technologies in healthcare like better imaging machines they in addition to AI can effectively guide surgical procedures.
            Although AI has great potentials it can only complement the skills of healthcare professionals rather than replace them entirely. We can harnes the benefits of AI while maintaining the human touch and compassion that are integral to healthcare.
            Thanks😊.

      4. An example of AI performing surgery is the story of Keith Thomas, who was a quadriplegic, a quadriplegic (a form of paralysis) is a disease that involves the inability of the 4 limbs to move. The patient became quadriplegic after he was had a pool accident and badly broke his neck 3 years earlier, the AI was able to perform a successful brain transplant and was able to move his hands and legs after year of paralysis. This story entails that with AI there are impossibilities to what we can do, it also expands on this point that has been earlier stated by@clever_peach about AI being able to revolutionise healthcare and on AI creating drugs, AI has actually made a drug called INS018-055 which is a first-in-class anti-fibrotic small molecule inhibitor, which means it is useful in fighting fibrosis or scarring in the lungs examples of such diseases are scleroderma and Chron's disease . This all entails that AI is can help in revutionalising healthcare.
        THANK YOU.

      5. An example for AI being used in surgery is image recognition. AI algorithms can analyse medical images such as x-rays and MRI’s to help detect anything abnormal. This can then help the doctors to make more accurate decisions during surgery. AI can also be used to predict a patients outcome after surgery and can assist maybe personal treatment plans for the patient. What’s your thoughts?

      6. Hi,Tiff@tropical talk the examplepf AI being used in surgery one example is The use of AI powered surgical robots like the do Vinci surgical system, which assist surgeons in performinh minimally in vasive procedures with greater precision and controll.
        Thanks!

      7. Yes, the robotic surgeries are available for surgeries such as hip replacement. When the robot performs the surgery, it wouldn't even make one mistake or miss a step (as humans sometimes tend to do) since it is already programmed with instructions. According to a recent survey, patients feel less pain during the robotic surgery than regular surgeries.

        1. Interesting ideas. Can you tell us where you found your evidence?

        2. Hi 👋 rational_sealion
          I like how you expressed what you think. However, I disagree with you because you said that the robots will not make mistakes as humans will do because they have been programmed. If so, who programmed them? Is it not humans who programmed them? Also, humans make mistakes so it is very likely for the robots to make a mistake because if the humans who programmed the robot made an error, then the robot will not be able do the surgery correctly. Also, if patients feel less pain when the surgery is being done by robots than the normal pain being done by humans, what if the surgery is not being done properly by the robots? This will cause less pain because they might have not done it well.
          THANK YOU FOR SPENDING YOUR PRECIOUS TIME TO READ MY COMMENT!!

        3. I agree to disagree in the sense that, yes AI bots are programmed to do some operations which are less risky than human operations. Because the AI bots hardly make mistakes. But as we all know, AI bots only have knowledge of what the are programmed for. SO when it comes to health care, what if there comes a situation where by there are no doctors around and the AI bots are left to do a surgery and they do not have the full knowledge of a particular surgery? Whats going to happen?
          Because I know that we humans all have our short comings. Spo what will happen if the AI bot is not well programmed and it is the middle of an operation? and its a very urgent surgery.

      8. Hi TIFF @ Topical Talk
        I have found an a AI that could be used in surgery as listed below :
        AI virtual assistants which are AI powered chatbots, apps or other interfaces -can be used to help answer questions about medications, forward reports to doctors or surgeons and help patients schedule a visit with a physician.

      9. Hey Tiff @ Topical Talk! I was thinking about how AI can assist in surgeries and I thought they can help by analyzing images of a person's insides, such as a photo of their bones or organs. This analysis helps doctors in planning the surgery and anticipating any potential issues. It's amazing how technology is advancing and finding ways to help us in different fields!

      10. Hi Tiff,
        Some examples of AI being used in surgeries are:
        1.Before Surgery:
        Imagine a surgeon planning a surgery. They use AI (like a smart computer) to look at pictures of the patient’s insides (like X-rays or scans). The AI helps the surgeon understand what they’ll find during the surgery.
        2.During Surgery:
        When the surgery is happening, AI is like a helpful assistant. It shows the surgeon 3D shapes and structures.
        Guides tiny cameras (called endoscopes) inside the body and can even track how tissues move.
        They can add digital information to what the surgeon sees (like a virtual map).
        3. Robotic Helpers:
        Some surgeries use robots controlled by AI. These robots are super precise and can do delicate tasks. They understand what’s happening during surgery, make smart decisions, and move very carefully.
        4.Smart Tools:
        AI is also part of the special tools used during surgery. These tools give real-time feedback to the surgeon. For example, they can help find hidden problems. AI is like a clever helper for surgeons. It makes surgeries safer and more accurate.

      11. Yes the can find an example of AI being used in surgery like the da Vinci Surgical System. The da Vinci system is a robotic surgical platform that allows surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgeries with enhanced precision and control. It consists of robotic arms equipped with surgical instruments and a console where the surgeon sits and controls the system.

        The da Vinci system incorporates AI algorithms to assist surgeons in real-time. The system translates the surgeon's hand movements into precise movements of the robotic arms, filtering out any tremors and providing a more stable and accurate execution of surgical tasks. Additionally, it offers features like 3D visualization and magnification, allowing for a more detailed view of the surgical site.

        They technology has been used in various surgical procedures. The integration of AI in surgical systems like da Vinci aims to improve surgical outcomes, reduce recovery times, and enhance the overall efficiency of surgical procedures.
        AI help and assist doctor a lot in the hospital in terms of surgery, in the ancient doctor uses their hand for surgery, it takes time for doctor to finish a particular patient before another and it kill a lot of people, but now with the help of AI technology that is meant for surgery it makes work easier and faster for the doctor and it saves a lot of lives in the world today.

      12. Yes of course, examples of surgeries which can be done by AI machine is the robot used to carry out BBL surgeries for increasing some parts of the body.

      13. That's a thoughtful query. tiff @topical chat, AI bots can be used in hospitals or surgical rooms to support or aid doctors in carrying out their duties. For instance, while a doctor is performing a surgery, they require assistance in getting the instruments necessary for the task. I eagerly await any corrections.
        Regards

      14. Hello Tiff
        Here are some ways that AI bots, in my opinion, can assist with surgery:
        1. AI bots can help a surgeon by providing the necessary instruments (nurses) for the procedure.
        2. While AI bots cannot yet replace doctors, in my opinion, this will change in the future and make people's lives easier.
        3. In addition, I believe that the physician can merely look it up online if they need to know something unexpected that happened during the procedure.
        EXCITED TO SEE CORRECTIONS
        Regards

      15. Hi Tiff
        According to most of things I have seen AI that are being used in hospitals today are da Vinci Xi and it is among the most used AI machines in the world .da Vinci Xi , has improved surgery in so many hospitals round the world today.

    2. I do agree with you because AI if programmed correctly could do almost anything. It could find something hidden that we havent been seeing in some "uncureable diseases" such as cancer. AI powered robots could actually collect enough data over the years to have an incredible breakthrough in the medical sector. AI will change humanity for the better without a doubt all we need to do is get some ideas in out head about what we want it to do and we can accomplish any goal with its help.

    3. Hi
      I agree with you clever_peach because you have a good point.AI has the potential to transform the emerging world in many ways because AI has many abilities.for example AI can help a banker in banking a farmer in farming and AI can make the world progress in many ways.
      Thanks.

      1. I'm not sure about this because you can't comfortably tell me that the world has not been progressing before now. Do you mean to tell me that the farmers and bankers have not been doing their job perfectly and with perseverance before the existence of the AI?

    4. I confidently agree with you clever_peach, because AI can have many impacts to the emerging world ,AI can be used in health issues, security issues etc.
      Artificial intelligence (AI)can help students in their school assignment by helping them with relevant information about the assignment.
      AI can even help adult with their job work or projects. AI can even help doctors with surgery and perform some of the task the doctors are not good in,AI even give doctors with information they don't know about in healthcare.
      Eager to see corrections.
      Thank you.

    5. I don't think I actually agree because if the AI should transform the emerging world there is a possibility that the citizens in that country are all going to be job less.so I don't think the AI can transform the emerging world but in a way can help to make a developed country more developed

      1. How do you think AI can help with development?

        1. "Hello Eva @ Topical Talk, AI has the potential to aid development in various fields. For instance, it can assist bankers in their work and doctors in performing surgeries. The abilities of AI can also contribute to the progress of a country." many people now use AI to make their work easier and faster.
          thanks.

        2. AI can help with development by assisting us with work like surgeries, fast food restaurants, producing shoes and more.

        3. Hey, Ava @ Topical Talk!
          I think AI can help with development through environmental protection. By analyzing data, AI can monitor things like air and water quality to make sure they're safe for people and animals. It can also track endangered animals to help protect them and their habitats. Plus, AI can even predict things like natural disasters, so we can be better prepared and keep everyone safe. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

        4. Hi Eva @ Topical Talk,
          AI can help with development by spending less time on repetitive tasks, helping scientists with further research that we do not know of, helping surgeons when performing more advanced surgeries as well as helping architecture with more improved building structures and with the capability (if needed) working from home and many others. This makes our lives much more easier and faster. However, the downside to this could cause unemployment, and does not have the same thoughts and empathy as a human would resulting danger to the humankind.

    6. Yes, I agree with your comment. Clever peach AI will revolutionize healthcare and medical services, but I want to question you will it revolutionize it in all aspects, let's say in psychology, therapy and psychiatry because to do these jobs effectively AI must be able to understand what it is that their patient is going through AI must be able to understand its pain and all the things that the patient goes through. But AI cannot understand human feelings and emotions, and just so you know, it is all still under mental healthcare.

    7. Hi Clever Peach!
      I love your comment and the examples gave but can you give an example of AI being used in drug discovery?
      I would like to clarify and learn something new from you.
      Thank you

    8. I agree because,
      The coming of AI's to small hospitals which are struggling to gain peoples trust and to gain recognition, helps a lot in achieving their primary goal as a clinic or hospital some of the reasons why people do not trust some of these hospitals is because, of some levels of lack of efficiency or inadequate training of medical personnel. Now the coming or introduction of Ai's can help them to eradicate most of the uncalled-for mistakes gain the trust of people as Ai's are highly efficient in such aspects. 25% percent of humans who die every year is as a result of mistakes made by medical personnel during medical treatment or surgery.

      With the employment Ai's it would give patients more hope of surviving rather making them fear loosing their lives during surgery.

      THANK YOU

    9. Technological advancement in company equipment will lead to a widespread of employment,this is called frictional employment.but now all the work that is supposed to be done by human will be done by machine,so therefore human labour would not be needed.

    10. I agree that AI has the potential to create new worlds or bring games to life with its advanced technology. Some people might see this as a positive thing because they could view it as a source of entertainment or as a way to experience things in a more immersive way.

    11. I'm not sure about this because it is part of every country to encounter challenges such as development I strongly disagree with you because if (Artificial Intelligence ) is used most country's would be more computerized or computer based witch could widen the gap of the negative effects (Ai) but on the other hand I do agree that (AI) is currently dominating the world so there is a large percent of the world that is more technological based and the rest of the world slowly adapts to the use of technology so the effect of (AI) has greatly impacted the world.

    12. Although the idea of advancements in healthcare is a good thing, many people might not trust or feel comfortable with so much reliance on new technology rather than proven human medical care. This is especially clear with the older generation who find technology daunting and unaccessible.

    13. I agree because robots cannot get tired. This may even help decrease the waiting times for major operations saving many lives!

  • Hi ,
    I personally think the current AI can change a lot in this emerging and modern world . I say this because we have a couple examples from what is already happening and what technology is slowly being introduced . A example of this is schools . We are currently seeing the slow progression of technology and AI being used in schools . We are currently seeing this in real life in The Georgia institute of Technology . They are using AI in a way of a teaching assistant called Jill Watson . Jill helps the students there by offering to 1 to 1 attention to them .
    On the other hand this may also be a bad thing as school is meant to be more than just education and learning . It is a place where students can grow their social skills aswell . This could not be done to the same level with a robot as they do not understand any emotion . This means the students will not have any connection to the teachers and might put them off learning .

    1. Thanks for sharing an example! How could we combine the use of AI and humans to get the best in education?

      1. Hello Tiff ,
        I think your question is really good . I think that AI and humans could merge by giving examples and harder level question answers to the teacher . This would make life easier for the teacher so they could focus on purely teaching the class . AI could also help when the teacher is ill . The AI will already know what part they are up to so they could teach the kids for that day .
        Thanks for the great question .

      2. I think that combining I and human efforts can greatly enhance the quality of education in menu ways. my favorite way is by using AI to correct teacher's spelling errors and create more challenging questions that improve their quality of education.
        Thanks!😊

      3. Hello Tiff.
        AI can be used to assist us in learning different languages like Spanish, Arabic, French and lots more.
        I think if we have an AI bot that is programmed with French, Arabic Spanish and other languages we can be talking to it in order to perfect our language and it is going to be fun. Also installing some cool games that has to do with developing different languages would help us too.
        Another amazing thing that the AI can do in education is to assist teachers who are super busy. The AI buddy can help teachers in coming up with really fun and interesting in a simple plans. It can also suggest awesome game activities for the students to learn with.
        By using AI in education we can make learning more enjoyable and effective for everyone involved.

    2. What you are saying is correct. AI is really helping in the education sector. They really contribute to developing the quality of education in schools. As you said, education isn't everything that one learns in school, one can also learn skills and grow themselves emotionally, socially and mentally. While AI cannot teach them all of this, they can be used as efficient tools by the teacher and this will really develop the level of education. Teamwork will really come in handy in the future. If teachers are able to efficiently use AI then everything will become better. With the accuracy and speed of AI and the affection and commitment of a teacher, the future of schools seem very bright.

  • The world is evolving into technology-based world, in my opinion I think AI will bring some positive changes in the world. AI has already taken the fields of agriculture, education, constructions etc. In agriculture AI has assisted farmers in the dispersal of seeds, drones used to fertilizers and insecticides. Scanning how fertile the soils for planting and creating seeds that are able to with stand disasters and even pests. AI based sprinklers used to water crops with or without the supervision of farmers. AI has assisted education in many ways, students used AI assistants for their research and studies, AI assist teachers by making their schedules and creating effective presentation. AI has helped disabled children in studying, do activities and communication with students. In hospitals AI assisted in helping researchers to find cures for illness and diseases and assisting in surgeries. In construction sites AI has helped save many lives and helping to reduce stress and labor for workers. AI is improving our planet for the better, but still needs a little work to our planet our advanced.

    1. Interesting points! Do you think there are any disadvantages of using AI in these industries?

      1. Yes, I believe the are disadvantages of using AI in these indutries, in Agriculture the will high costs because buying a machine for farm will cost farmers a lot of money,another is potential human job loss, and lack of emotions and creativity. AI is an algorithm and can somtime give misformations about the soils,plants and over fertilize plants. In construction humans become lazy and rely on AI to do all the work, this can be can a huge problems for constructors because they will be addicted to these invention which can cause problems . Because of AI ability to do tasks properly and quickly, workers in sites will tend to lose their jobs leading to increase of employment. Another is that since some projects take place in areas that are well connected to the ibternet it will be difficult for AI to perform its tasks. In education , AI cant express emotions and give support to children thus student tend to be bored and lose the ability to collaborate and communicate. In hospitals , AI might fail to diagnose illnessses correctly or patient could be misdiagnosed due to th lack of understanding human emotions.

      3. I just had a little talk with my friends and in the talk we discussed about disadvantages of AI after the talk I later came up with the Idea as talked about below:
        In my own view I think There are many disadvantages of using AI in the industries as listed below:
        1. Costly Implementation: These are those related to the development and execution of the implementation strategy that targets one or more specific evidence-based interventions. The strategy will affect directly the subsequent intervention, possibly in its efficiency, utilization, or quality.
        2. Potential human job loss: Actual Impact of AI. With projections that AI could potentially replace around 800 million jobs worldwide by 2030, it's no wonder the world is brimming with anticipation.
        3.Lack of emotion and creativity: Another limitation of AI is that it lacks emotion and empathy. It can't replicate human emotions or understand the emotional impact of art or music. As a result, AI-generated content may lack the emotional depth and impact that comes from human creativity. Additionally, AI is only as smart as the data it's fed.
        THANK YOU.

    2. I agree because the proliferation of technology and artificial intelligence (AI) is indeed transforming various aspects of the world, bringing about several positive changes. This transition is evident in agriculture, education, healthcare, and construction, among other sectors.
      Just as you mentioned, in agriculture, AI has significantly enhanced efficiency and productivity. By leveraging AI, farmers can employ precision farming techniques, such as using drones to disperse seeds and apply fertilisers and insecticides. Additionally, AI-powered sensors and algorithms can analyse soil fertility and weather conditions to optimise crop growth. These advancements not only increase yields but also promote sustainability by reducing the use of resources.

      But I also think that we shouldn't only pay attention to the advantages of AI but also the disadvantages.

      1. I agree strongly with the comment that we should also look at the disadvantages of AI enthusiastic_buffalo, AI has its disadvantages in education, human interactions decrease, which will affect the social and emotional development of students. Unemployment of teachers and lack of humor in class. AI can malfunction in any lesson causing harm to students and teachers. In agriculture, AI can be expensive can can cost a lot for development and maintenance. Loss of jobs and cultural values for farmers. Plants can be having difficulty adapting to technology. AI can be inaccurate in predicting water levels, soil fertility, and weather patterns. In healthcare, AI can harm patients due to AI system errors and inaccuracy. Patients not being comfortable with an AI treating them. In construction sites, AI can malfunction causing accidents to happen. Low internet connectivity making hard for AI systems to work. AI predictions in sites are not accurate hence causing buildings to be weak and unstable. In all AI still needs more work before humans can fully allow AI systems to assist them in their daily activities.

      2. Yes, to add onto @enthusiastic_buffalo we can't just look at the good side of things, if we do things can go extremely wrong. For example: Somebody wants to back out of surgery but they cannot because the robot is already doing the surgery. Robots don't have feelings, or remorse. They just go with what they're programmed for. Let's say it was a robot police, the robot could possibly arrest people that look like they're doing wrong but they're not. For example, if someone is putting a phone in their pocket the robot might think it's a gun. Or, if the person pulls their phone out, they might get arrested by the robot. All in all, my point is to look at not only advantages of AI, but be aware of the disadvantages of AI too.

  • As the world changes, technology changes too. So I think that yes AI will transform the world. Many gadgets, machines will be technological advanced to assist us in our daily tasks. Additional in many big sectors such as farming Healthcare, education the use of AI will be increased dramatically. It has already started in some of them, such as robotic surgeries, autocorrection in education and so on. However I think that after so.e years AI will arrive at its peak and it will stop progressing. Of course this is a personal opinion.

    1. I couldn't agree more. I believe we are constantly progressing concerning technological advances but I think at some point there will be an end or something different will emerge that we haven't thought about it up until now. For me AI is best properly used in medical reasons and especially for people with disabilities. It is for them a comfort as it can help them communicate or even walk. For these reasons this is their best use.

  • I feel that the AI could transform the emerging world into a place that everything is made easier or us such as, the AI guiding us with our assignments as students, helping us to summarize notes to reduce stress, helping adults and parent to organize their schedule, also helping cleaners in cleaning e.t.c AI could do a very big lot for us but the things stated above is a brief summary. Have a lovely day Topical Talkers.

    1. I agree with you because... student now use Ai to do a lot of work for example project giving by the school to the student to do at home the would go ahead and use the internet to do it so that they can go and play.
      Thanks.

      1. I exceedingly agree with you reflective_cymabals because Artificial intelligence (also known as AI) as you stated it helps students to do a lot of work (project),yes I agree with your point ,thus AI holds great promise for making our lifestyles more easier. It helps us with research,assignments, helps with time management,helps individuals with organizing,automation tasks, personalized learning and etc..

      2. The fact that they have internet access should not put them under the illusion that letting AI do everything for them is alright. There should be regulation because dependence on AI will make them dormant. There is a difference between using AI as an aid and over-using it. They should at least work with the information that they get from AI and put in a little creativity themselves. This will actually help them develop better. They should not just come home from school and toss all their assignments to AI to do it while they go and play. This will not lead to development, it will lead to dependency and dormancy.

        1. I wholeheartedly concur with you, intelligent_orchard, since AI can have a positive effect on security-related concerns. This is because AI is very good at spotting crooks and can follow someone just by looking at them.
          Artificial intelligence (AI) affects learning and development in addition to security.
          AI aids in the development of physicians, farmers, and other professions.
          However, there are occasionally certain drawbacks to AI. These include as follows.
          1. Jobs may be replaced by AI.
          2. AI might rule the entire planet.
          eager to see any corrections.
          I'm grateful.

        2. I think your opinion is intriguing and I completely agree with you, intelligent_orchard. AI has the potential to change the world such that everything is simpler and better, in my opinion. AI may help people in their daily lives, assist kids with school-related tasks, and support parents. In the future, I think AI bots can help to make things simpler for physicians, since AI can help to improve some jobs and support people in jobs like those in the medical field.
          EXCITED TO SEE CORRECTIONS
          Regards

    2. Hi reflective cymbals!
      I agree because I believe that artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to greatly simplify our lives. For example, AI could help us with our schoolwork, help us condense notes to ease stress, assist adults and parents with scheduling and much more.

      1. I agree because... AI could serve as an assistant in every job. It helps us work easily both with children and adults. No matter what the job is AI would help one way or the other. Most of us think AI would not be suitable for teaching since it has no emotions. But it could help provide the teacher more information and resources. Example: On the hub the real adults do most of the job, but AI helps them to identify whether someone copied from somebody or used AI. AI could help you solve question in steps as an improvised teacher. AI could help you generate a reply or comment using the prescribed genre since it uses gigantic words that make it seem more professional. Now am really confused about a question. If AI was invented a long time ago where the great scientists existed, would they have made more or less discoveries.

        1. I agree and disagree with you because........ you stated that AI could serve as an assistant in every job. AI guiding us with our assignments as students, helping us to learn our notes in the shortest ways, to reduce stress on our teacher’s, helping adults and parent to organize their schedule, also helping cook different foods around the world. I believe that artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to greatly simplify our lives.
          This is very good but AI devices malfunction easily. AI devices helps with teaching.
          Imagine that an AI bot comes to the class and just speaks without making the class interactive some need the class to be fun before they can understand what the teacher says but because is an AI bot it is programmed to just speak and AI bots don’t have feelings.
          This happens because AI devices lack these stuff:

          Job displacement
          Ethical concerns about bias and privacy
          Security risks from hacking
          Lack of human-like creativity and empathy
          High production costs
          Making humans lazy
          Rise in unemployment
          Difficulty in creating the correct AI structure

        2. I agree with your comment, AI can help people in many ways. In school, our STEM teacher showed us glasses that can help blind people from bumping into objects and walls, so when nearing a wall or objects the glasses will make a beeping sound. AI can help create devices that help blind people from accidents and situations. AI can help students who are homeschooled enjoy their studies by using AI to create a metaverse where the student can interact with people and the AI can disguise itself as a human teacher so the students can have the feeling of life in a classroom. AI voice technologies can help mute students express their opinions and questions, these voice technologies can help deaf students understand educators' lessons. AI can help guards in prisons by scanning every area of the prisons every hour, this way prisoners have no chance of escaping. AI can help the elderly in nursing homes by, reading to them, scheduling for them to take their meds, and helping them to walk around easily . Humans' idea of creating AI has helped many people do things they are not able to do and will continue making dreams possible for humans.

        3. I really love your question helpful_idea and i would love to give my opinion on it. I have been thinking about something similar to that too. I think that if AI had existed a long time ago great scientist wouldn't even be great. The thing about AI is that when it is implemented, it eases the work of the user which means it puts you in your comfort zone. Most scientists made those discoveries because they were not in their comfort zone, they were experiencing some kind of problem. If AI had been there to begin with, they would have just solved the problems with a click of a button without even wondering what caused the problem. I also think that if AI is really implemented in developing countries they will develop fast but they won't develop well. There is a difference. Other countries have developed by making mistakes, learning from them, being innovative and finding solutions to the problems they face. This gives them the ability to think critically and actually solve problems around them. On the other hand if developing countries rely on AI too much, they could simply tap a button to solve their problems instead of using their own intelligence to find a way out. I don't think AI should be allowed to develop a country, the people should develop the country with AI as a tool.

    3. Those are good examples. Could you think of any negative impacts of using AI in the emerging world?

      1. We all know an adage that says that everything that has an advantage also has a disadvantage this same adage applies to AI in the emerging world AI has a negative impact.
        AI'S negative impact is that it could result to scam example an AI could do an advertisement and people think it's humans and they subscribe a large amount of money for the advertisement without knowing it is AI scam, and later when they discover it was a scam they get high blood pressure.
        In conclusion the negative impact on AI in the emerging world is that it could cause security risks that is scam.

      2. The negative impact of using AI in the emerging world is that AI will take over the world and it will be replaced with humans.and if they are not control AI it can cause danger particularly when there is no guidelines and protective laws in place. Although AI have a lot of benefits in an emerging country we cannot say if the benefits out weigh the risks.

      3. Hello, we all know that everything has a good and bad side so I am going to try and list out a few disadvantages. Firstly, I know this might sound a bit childish but a while ago I watched this cartoon that spoke about robots taking over the world and over powering us. Secondly probably the AI could gang up against us and start to terrorize our live bit by bit. Thirdly and lastly, AI could cause an increase in unemployment and poverty. The AI could start coming into our work places and take our spot. So I hope that these few points of mine explain a lot

      4. I'm not sure about this.....but,
        The introduction of AI, in developed areas carries the risk of job losses, privacy concerns and an exacerbation of existing inequalities. The implementation of AI might disrupt economies. Impede the growth of traditional skills. The influence of AI on job markets in developing regions could potentially pose challenges. Result in skill gaps. Additionally the impact of AI on emerging economies raises concerns regarding data privacy and ethical considerations. The introduction of AI, in developed areas may give rise to dilemmas and regulatory challenges concerning data privacy.

      5. Yes, AI has many negative impacts in the emerging world, and some people see it as an advantage, while others side with me. There are some advantages, but the disadvantages affect us in our daily lives presently. Some negative impacts include:
        Job Displacement: As AI automates tasks, some jobs may be at risk. Sectors relying on routine work could see job losses, affecting employment opportunities.
        2. Bias and Fairness: AI algorithms learn from historical data, which might contain biases. If not handled carefully, these biases can perpetuate discrimination, especially against marginalized groups.
        3. Limited Access: Not all countries have equal access to AI. Infrastructure, costs, and expertise can hinder adoption in developing nations.
        4. Ethical Concerns: AI decisions impact lives (e.g., healthcare, finance). Ensuring transparency, accountability, and ethical use is crucial.
        5. Privacy Risks: AI often processes personal data like Inadequate privacy protections can lead to breaches and loss of privacy.

    4. Hi,reflective_cymbals
      Your suggestions and opinions were great. But, don't forget that when Al will be make a emerging world we will be able to complete our work easily. But, don't forget that once Al transforms the current world into the emerging world, our job will be easier. But, it will make people lazy. Human creativity and intelligence will decrease. Then no one will be efficient.So in my opinion, if Al transforms the current world into the emerging world, it will be both good and bad for us.
      Thanks.
