How do you think AI will change the world in the next ten years? Factories have already been taken over by robots and recently a field of barley was grown in England with no human involved; all the work was done by robots. Soon perhaps accountants, doctors, musicians, scientists will all be robots. Will there be any middle-class jobs left? Will there be any jobs left for humans at all?
Will the experiences of daily life change or will AI slowly grow in back offices without our realising that it is happening? Or will AI be in everyone’s phone? Will there be 2 more branches on the human tree, homo androidus and homo iphonetus?
When the world is run by AI will it be harder or easier to make friends with other humans? In Japan there are people who have no real human contact at all. Will that spread everywhere?
Come and talk to us about the next 10 years in AI. Turn off your phone so that it cannot hear us whisper…
