    We have to equate all. I expect many problems if there is development in one country and other countries have not. I can also predict that the change will be faster. The elite will go to discover the machines and then make themselves. Rich countries can do things that poor countries cannot do. Such as software development, the advancement of the country and development and the increase of unemployment through the robot. This will lead to the emergence of many internal and external problems and thus destroy it. We do not know the extent of the thinking of the poor countries, and this is not to give them the opportunity to change. If this happens, we can see news stories about the rise of countries on a large scale. After a long time, I expect that news stories in rich cities will be different from poor countries because of the great difference between the achievements. The stories can be similar, but with little probability.

    If richer countries develop artificial intelligence technology, but poor countries do not, I think artificial intelligence has its advantages and disadvantages. And reducing risks. As for its downsides, machines that support artificial intelligence do not understand morals and make people trust too much in technology, and this is a lot of negative and lacks creativity. As for its risks, job loss is due to automation.
    Privacy Violations
    “Deep fake”
    Arithmetic bias caused by bad data
    Social and economic inequality When I watched a movie about it, I concluded that. The movie Her 2013. This is a very wonderful movie. One of the best films I have is very purposeful and realistic. What will happen to the world if artificial intelligence spreads according to the movie? Humans will be replaced by robots. The movie raises a very bold case about some fleeing to Intelligent machine and withdrawal from reality. There are other great films as well, but I liked this a lot. Secondly, rich countries can do things that poor countries cannot do, which is that they are able to develop themselves by themselves, not with the artificial complaint that destroyed the entire world. I agree that it saves time and effort, but it has negatives at the same time that can control your mind. Myself and they are genius makers

    If the richer countries develop AI and the poorer countries don't, I think this will further widen the gap between them. Developed countries can do what poor countries can't do like send drones to transport the aid and medical supplies they need. And to use artificial intelligence for human services.. I think the reaction of the richer countries by helping developing countries to achieve the United Nations sustainable development goals such as eradicating poverty, health care and combating global warming through artificial intelligence. Perhaps the reaction of poor countries is to realize the importance of those technologies and innovations In finding solutions to the challenges facing them, the trend becomes towards the importance of going to artificial intelligence, and if this happens, we will see promising and joyful news by reducing the gap between the rich and developing countries that will keep pace with the rich countries in using artificial intelligence tools in all fields to increase the exploitation of their resources and the speed of their production..

    If richer countries develop AI technology but poor countries don't,I think that peoples in wealthy countries will initially be enthusiastic and buy robots, but after time I think they will get bored and start day after day regretting after seeing the negative aspects of these robots,For example, the mother and father go out to work, and they depend on the robot to prepare breakfast for their children, telling him to prepare anything for breakfast, and here comes the terrible thing where the robot does not find anything in the kitchen,He sees the domestic cat and catches it and cooks it,And serving it as a meal, I think that's really terrible! Thus, children will begin to hate robots, and in school, of course, they will find robots, and children will begin to destroy the teacher for the presence of robots, And there is also another problem, the people themselves, that is, when artificial intelligence develops greatly, the robots will start to do everything, that is, they will steal our jobs,And here are the technological companies working on developing the emotional intelligence of robots, that is, the difference between a human and a machine will become unnoticed!!!! ,And governments will start giving robots rights and nationalities, and they will become citizens like us,And this is how the rich country will have the number of robots outnumbering the number of citizens, and the state will start little by little by losing its strong economy. Why, because everything will drop in price ,Because they are afraid if they raise prices, the state will become robots and people whose number does not exceed the number of residents of the village

    And the reaction of people in poor countries, at first they will feel the desire to live this feeling, and some of them will begin to immigrate to rich countries, but then they will feel like the people in rich countries felt and return to their homelands,Thus, the population in poor countries will hate robots because of the reaction of the population of rich countries and their migration to poor countries to go away from technology, Thus, the government will begin to exploit this reaction and will develop living in it and the economic fields, and if it thinks intelligently, it will have ambitions to reach the natural status of rich countries before artificial intelligence, And the balance will be reversed, and the poor countries will become rich and the rich will become poor, and this is how the residents of countries without the development of artificial intelligence will be satisfied

      I really think that your words are true. They will take our role in life. In the future, life will become the world of robotics, and we humans are on the verge of extinction. It has negative aspects that people do not think about. Some people before they buy the robot think that it is a beautiful and comfortable thing, but it is not like that. They should see its negatives as well.

      But it is necessary to draw a parallel between the positive and negative aspects, as robots have many advantages such as Benefits of Robots There are many benefits for robots in different fields, and the following are mentioned
      Industrial field: Robots are used in industry, and used in the automobile industry, and to deal with hot metals, which is a dangerous task for humans to perform.
      Medical: Robots perform surgery, assist in rehabilitation, automatically disinfect hospital rooms and surgical wards, and a host of other tasks.
      Robots you didn't know were robots: These include items we encounter every day in routine activities, but we probably wouldn't think of as robots such as those used in automatic car washes, speed cameras, red lights, automatic doors, elevators, and some kitchen appliances .

    If richer countries develop AI technology but poor countries don't, I believe that advanced economies will offer higher wages because TFP is higher and these higher wages push companies in advanced economies to use robots more intensively initially....!


    Rich countries can do things that poor countries cannot do, such as: gap advances in technology inventions such as robots that are programmed to do human work..!
    I think that at that time there will be a robot in every house that will do all the work of the house..!
    There will also be more smart devices that will allow people to save their time tremendously, and the world will also witness a technological development, as I heard on social media that there will be no schools in the future. We will only stay in our homes and follow everything related to studying through smart devices...!
    ______________________
    I think the reaction of people in richer countries to them is not going to be very interesting. This ability to access innovation is one of the most striking disparities between rich and poor countries. While such AI innovations are impressive, they can't take it for granted. The astonishing progress that technology companies are making in the countries of the South may slow, we don't know....!
    ____________________
    I think that the reaction of people in poor countries, unlike the reaction of rich countries, will be very surprising for them, considering it a great technological revolution...!
    But while technology can exacerbate inequality in the world, it has the potential to mitigate it because AI can do more than electrical devices; It could also change the way health care, disaster relief, finance, logistics, education, and business services are delivered in the Global South.

    And I also think that their reaction will probably not be good because they will look on the one hand that since the countries have witnessed the world a technological revolution, why did they not help the poor countries...!

    If the rich countries develop artificial intelligence and the poorer countries did not. I think this will widen the gap between them. Rich countries can do things that poor countries cannot do. Like robots, "robots" replace humans, and the artificial intelligence revolution represents an increase in the productivity of robots. Here are some examples of the use of artificial intelligence in our daily lives
    Unlock your phone with Face ID
    Social media
    Send an email or message
    search on google
    voice assistant
    smart home appliances
    commuting to work
    Banking Operations
    The benefit of artificial intelligence is that it can process huge amounts of data effortlessly , more quickly and effectively than anyone else.

    If the richest countries are developing artificial intelligence technology and poor countries do not do so, I think there will be contradicting the world among these countries, and the most rich countries will control artificial intelligence on the world's economy, because they have a mind that surpasses human skill, however? Evolution will be limited thinking, and will not think outside the fund, but on the other hand poor countries will force their peoples to join and intelligence as well. The rich countries can do things will not afford poor countries, for example: rich countries associated with artificial intelligence will develop faster than poor because they have something helps them in their problems, and as saying machines are facilitated and efforted. We all know Japan's planet, which is the most technologically used in her life, and began using robots in restaurants and public places instead of human, but for this negative effect.
    However I think the future people will be divided into two parts :
    1) part wants to evolve, progress and use technology in our lives and artificial intelligence.
    2) part it does not want this and believe it is a bad idea and will destroy the world including objects and forms of life. But the end is the future because things at the beginning will be wonderful but ending is shock, because artificial intelligence will be certainly great: machines help you and relieve you the tasks of house and work and help you solve huge problems.
    It is likely that the robots are also a hindrance of evolution and all of us are scarce and expect and expect this theory logical. and robots will not want to be someone less than experienced and knowing that he is destroyed, the man is sensitive with her or her machine, and the smarter and we can save the information faster, but I also hope that we are not excluded from this life.

        Such as the world in stretch and constantly expand, our evolution is also evolved and presented a year after a significant development, We already started using robots in our lives and the man can not live without technologia.
        What will happen in a whole future will depend on the reaction of people on this development, if you Integrate with this development democratic without attachment or something else their results will be good for us and for the future, If humans merged together badly, the results will turn into bad results, If you say human activity as a result of adoption on this or has become in bad condition, our future will be destroyed before even begins, So I advise humans in advance if you want beautiful and happy life in the future you must dealing with proper development for a sound life in the future.

    If richer countries develop artificial intelligence technology and poor countries do not, I think that the risks of widening the gap between these countries will widen by diverting more investments to advanced economies where automation has become a dominant feature and therefore there will be serious consequences for jobs in developing countries because that It threatens to deplete rather than supplement its labor force, which is essentially an advantage of less advanced economies.
    Rich countries can do things that poor countries cannot do, such as increasing productivity and thus increasing economic growth in rich countries. Also, rich countries that use artificial intelligence technology can advance in all areas such as medical, military and environmental fields, and all this enables them to control more and more On poor countries that are unable to do so.
    I think that people in rich countries will react by being satisfied that their lives will become easier and easier and will save their time and effort, but they will have concerns such as concern for human life due to the control of artificial intelligence, as well as fears of people losing their jobs.
    The reaction of people in poor countries is to feel indignant because life is uncomfortable, not developed and not easy, and there will be a permanent comparison between their mechanism of life and the life of countries that use artificial intelligence, which will make them feel inferior and thirsty for this life, and they will view these countries as living on another planet and not Earth.
    If this happens, we may see news about the use of robots by rich countries that will spy on other countries and thus know their news and secrets.
    It can also use artificial intelligence In developing robots that can kill people or destroy countries without realizing them.

        Thank you. I think that things are likely to happen, which is an inevitable result of the development of artificial intelligence, which is manifested in two things: First: the increase in the control of technologically advanced countries over other countries and the tightening of their control over them.
        The second: With the increase of artificial intelligence, I think that in the future human jobs will be completely abandoned, especially since robots will be more productive than humans.

    If the rich country develops technology, such as artificial intelligence, and the poor country does not, and the rich country may develop technology for them, robots, and this may be a danger to society and may pose a danger to employees, such as the retirement of humans from their job by making managers to replace employees with robots, and this spreads the retirement of these employees and Also, one of the dangers of immortal bots is the effect of comparing with humans and it can be immortal because it can be used continuously and this makes society lazy to rely on these bots for its own needs and it can be dangers to children and it can control the child’s mind to solve many things and this child depends on Only robots and technology development may also be different Not valid for the state, for example, the modern phone industry, and also in rich countries there are rich people, and these people may buy modern phones for their children to stop their children from crying, and some children cannot practice anything other than phones or modern devices, and this is a very dangerous matter and technology should be used very better. To make this country the best thing that has been achieved by the development of technology, this technology must be good for society, and parents must also follow up on the use of their children in technology, for example, not everything about technology must use their minds to solve their problems or solve their duties or anything whatsoever.

    Rich countries can do things that poor countries cannot do, such as improving customer experience through chatbots to facilitate and develop the customer experience. Companies use chatbots to handle the initial steps of interacting with the customer, requesting basic information such as the user account number and user account number. order, payment details and contact information. This reduces the load on human resources and allows them to focus on issues that are complex for chatbots, as well as the waiting time for customers to speak with agents – increasing the overall efficiency of the customer experience. AI-powered chatbots also help companies anticipate and avoid complaints by capturing patternsin user behavior and “learning” from it. This allows chatbots to notice problems and take control of them before they appear to the customer.

    In fact, if rich countries develop modern technology systems, and poor countries do not, many things will happen that will upset the balance of the planet,
    The first is that people in poor countries will try to travel to rich countries to exploit their technologies.
    Second, it will cause a collapse in the system of the poor countries, as people can make protests to demand the same as in the rich countries.
    But on the other hand, this we will benefit a lot from this technology because it will push the poor countries to work hard, to become like the rich countries.

    If the richer countries develop artificial intelligence technology, but the poor countries do not, I think, if the poor cities do not join the industrial wealth, then their failure to join the artificial intelligence revolution will have a significant impact on their renaissance and will have a significant impact on developing economies as well.

    It will become a risk between rich and poor countries by diverting more investment to advanced economies in which automation has become stable, and this will have negative consequences for the jobs in developing countries, which usually represented an advantage in less developed economies.

    If the richer countries developed "Al" technology, but the poor countries did not do so, I think that a knowledge economy arises and develops in ways that depend on information technology and seeks only to manage information efficiently so that with its knowledge-based industries become the basis for the economic sector, as the employment report for the year 2001 issued by the international Labor office indicates except that despite the communications revolution that the world is currently witnessing , an increasing number of workers are still unable to find jobs or access the emerging technological resources necessary to ensure productivity in a global economy where the adoption of digital technology is increasing. Information and communications therefore, the policy of developing countries must be to access technology and to ensure that workers have the education and skills necessary to use this technology and benefit from it, which will encourage development and job growth.

    New technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, robotics, big data, and networking, are expected to revolutionize production processes, but they could also have a major impact on developing development. For example, there is a significant difference between opportunities and potential sources of growth.

    He suggests that new technology brings with it risk of widening the gap between rich and poor countries by shifting more investment to advanced where the automation is an established feature. Thus, this may have negative consequences for jobs in developing countries because it threatens to replace rather than complement their growing labor force, which has traditionally represented an advantage in less advanced developing. To prevent this growing divergence, policymakers in developing countries will need to take action to raise productivity and improve skills among workers.

    First, I think from my point of view that artificial intelligence is not able to make decisions on its own, but I think if it is developed, it can make some true false information and help people who are unable to do anything, whether (sick or otherwise)
    The first question:
    1- If richer countries develop AI technology but poor countries don't, I think AI will develop a lot. They can do many things that have evolved from that for me. If I were richer I would have done:

    1- There are some robots that may give incorrect and wrong answers. Batteries can be made or the robot can be programmed to do this step.


    2- Rich countries can make a huge thickness of the robot case and it never breaks, because if the thickness of this cover is weak or thin, this prevents the users of artificial intelligence from doing what they want! As for the second question, of course, rich countries can do things that poor countries cannot do, such as:

    1- Programming robots to be highly efficient and easy to use

    2- If they can buy robots, they should buy the best robots

    3- I think they can put stones and a large battery so that the robot does not finish charging because I think it ends up early

    4- If they can't put batteries, let them design big chargers to charge robots and easily charge them quickly

    As for my answer to the third question:
    I think the reaction of people in richer countries by adding new things to the development of artificial intelligence and making robots with very high efficiency I think the reaction of people in poor countries is that they don't care about artificial intelligence because I think they rely on their natural intelligence and their ability to understand things like my hometown Gaza is one of the poor countries and I don't think they use artificial intelligence and use robots except for a few of them If this happens, we may see news about the development of artificial intelligence, the development of robots, and the development of a large number of people in understanding and making decisions easily

    As for the additional challenge question:

    Of course, it will be in the richer countries because they care about this a lot..

    If the richer countries develop artificial intelligence technology, and the poor countries do not, I think there will be a huge contradiction in society, and the richer countries in technology and artificial intelligence will control the economy And in the world economy, because they have minds and skills that surpass humanity, however, development will be limited in thinking, but on the other hand, abundant nations will be forced to join the world of technology, a world that is beyond their capabilities. Rich countries can do things that exceed the capabilities and endurance of poor countries, for example: rich countries will connect all areas of life with technology and will develop faster and better than poor countries, Because they have the material that helps them to do so, we all know the country of Japan called "Planet of Technology", and it uses technology in its areas of life to a large extent. However, I think that people in the future will be divided into two parts:1) A part that wants to progress and develop more .And the second section does not want all this progress and believes that it is an idea that can negatively affect the world, and also believes that the idea at the beginning will be wonderful, but it may turn into a shock in the end. It is true that thinking about artificial intelligence and technology is a wonderful thing, such as: machines can help you get rid of tiring work and home tasks and help you solve your daily problems Robots and technology may be an obstacle to human development, and we all know this logical theory. And we know it helps us a lot (memorizing information communication, and other things) but I really hope we are not excluded from life.

    If the rich countries develop technology and the poor countries do not, I think that this will negatively affect the world and society in general. The rich country will become that it wants to seize the poor countries to annex them to their borders and make them their own. Thousands of victims and wounded will go and world wars will take place between each other.

    Rich countries can do something that poor countries cannot, such as: creating huge differences in technology, very large developments, and imbalances between countries. It is also possible to invent machines that help raise children when parents are absent, or make food, or help the student when the teacher is absent or sick. That is, there are numerical things and inventions that are very beautiful
    I think that the reaction of people in poor countries is to feel humiliated or object to this, or it is possible to erupt a war to say why they are like this or we are like this, and comparisons, quarrels, international disputes and wars begin.
    If this happens, I think that the news will circulate about the furry countries, comparing them with the rich countries, and start mocking the decline of poor countries and spreading bullying.

    Do you think that the news stories related to this will be the same in the richer and poorer countries, or will they be the same, that is, that the modern technology in the rich countries will be in the news in the poorer countries and that this will be a dream for them and that they will only see it on the social networking sites

      I think your point is great. There will be a conflict between the poor and the rich countries because of technology and development. Then the rich countries will take over the poor in general. But I want to understand. Do you really think that the robots and automated machines that you mentioned and inventions will work in the future to do our jobs and take our place? ?

    Rich people would be alot richer because they would have lots of robots to do things for them. That would make prices go up because they were all richer.

    I think the rich countries develop artificial intelligence, but the poor countries do not, the poor countries will bear the bad results that this development will cause, because the bad thing will happen to the country itself. It if possible with the idea of the earth in general, but the rich countries can do things that the poor countries cannot do, such as owning power over other countries is like starting and ending wars because other countries cannot resist technology and the reaction of the poor countries in terms of technological prosperity will be to try to develop themselves in order to teach the prosperity that makes them compete with the rich countries.

    If HIC's developed ai technology before an LIC did it would benefit the lic country because it would be used there before it would be introduced faster there.
