Starting in the 1950s, Artificial Intelligence (A.I) is quickly becoming a big curiosity and fear for people around the world. Mark Cuban predicted that the world’s first trillionaire would be an A.I entrepreneur. Here is what he said…
“I am telling you, the world’s first trillionaires are going to come from somebody who masters AI and all its derivatives and applies it in ways we never thought of,” says Mark Cuban – A self-made billionaire
A.I is not just a name for automating some of the daily life tasks or little cute robots that can help kids with their homework. They can also be used for many purposes e.g in the military, medical, agriculture etc. In fact, It is predicted that by 2025 US will have more robots soldiers than human soldiers.
Another threat to humans from AI is that it can replace their jobs. Which is in fact, true for example, A Japanese firm is to open a world’s first robot-run farm! In this post, I’m going to show how artificial intelligence will change the future.
A.I Will Replace Our Jobs
This might be the biggest fear of people about Artificial Intelligence. Numerous articles and books are published about AI being replacing their jobs in near future. I’ve already described two such examples above (robot-run farm and robot-soldiers replacing human-soldiers). The third example is a Chatbot.
A chatbot is a computer program used to stimulate a conversion to a human. Now you might be thinking that what a chatbot have to take with replacing our jobs? Yes, it has. According to Forbes, Customer service is a $350 billion dollar industry. Now think what if business owners replace chatbots with customer service departments! They no longer have to pay employees, instead, a computer program is available 24/7 for them for no salary. In fact, thousands of eCommerce stores owners have already integrated chatbots!

Extensive Use Of Automation
A.I will surely have some good effects on our lives. Automation will extensively be used so that we can focus on what really matters. Even nowadays, a lot of automation is being used e.g self-driving cars. Although, self-driving cars are still in their initial phase but after the entry of Google in this industry, self-driving cars are evolving at a quick pace!
A.I can be helpful for people with disorders. For example, there are some artificial intelligence applications for smartphones that can help blind people listen to whatever comes in front of their phone camera!
Role In Agriculture
A few centuries back, the population of the earth was not too much. The crops produced by the farmers were enough. But this not the case now, the global population has grown from 1 billion in 1800 to 7.6 billion in 2017! Global population is expected to increase at a rate of 1-2% per year for next few decades but the number of crops production will struggle to keep pace.
Here A.I comes into play. With the help of A.I, we not only can increase the production of the crops but also can significantly reduce the wastage.
A.I can be really useful as well as a “danger” for us. Tech experts and Scientists (including Stephen Hawking) worries that advance A.I will take over us and end the human race. That’s how artificial intelligence will change the future!
