The Wonders of Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, has emerged as a transformative technology that is changing how we live and work. AI can automate repetitive tasks and free up time for more meaningful work (which I think it’s great!), and this has increased productivity and efficiency in many industries. With its ability to learn and adapt, AI is helping us solve some of the world’s biggest challenges and improve our lives in countless ways. 

AI can analyse large amounts of data quickly and accurately, and this has led to breakthroughs in fields such as climate science, where AI is being used to model and predict the effects of climate change. AI is also used in finance to identify patterns and make more informed investment decisions. AI is also used to improve our daily lives in ways we may not even realise. Citing an example, I use Siri a lot; it understands and responds to requests, making my life more convenient, but won’t it create complacency? Or too much reliance?

There are so many benefits of AI, and I believe as it continues to evolve, it will undoubtedly bring even more benefits to our lives. From improving healthcare outcomes to advancing scientific research, the potential of AI is limitless. By embracing this technology and using it responsibly, we can create a brighter future for ourselves and future generations. 

However, my husband still complains about mobile phones. He craves a simpler world where we can connect and make meaningful friendships, not glued to our phone screens for hours on end. Now we have automated cars, but there are still some people wary of all these technological advancements etc. As technology advances and life is simplified, what would happen when one of them goes rogue? I’ve watched too many sci-fi films!

What do you think of AI if you’ve read this article up until now? What do you think will happen in the next 10 or 20 years? Would humans be relegated to the background? Would we become fat and lazy as AI does everything for us?

I’ve read countless articles and watched several videos on the benefits of AI, and for those of us working in the creative industry, it may be revolutionary. Nevertheless, I’ve lived long enough to know nothing good comes easy. I wonder what will happen in the tech industry in the next 50 years. 😊

I’m keen to read your thoughts.

Much love, always!

Madness Of A Mob

The price placed on human life is significantly lower than that of animals in some countries and it is scary to even think about it. I was sent straight to the stone age when the news broke about a horrible lynching in Nigeria.

The scene was akin to something you’d watch in a low budget horror movie, it was gory and I couldn’t bring myself to watch the whole sordid thing on YouTube but this horrible madness should be vehemently condemned.

The story broke out on Friday evening and initially the facts surrounding the events leading up to the lynching were sketchy but by the time all the facts were laid bare, I was literally shaking with disgust. I think it was last Friday when four university students in Port Harcourt, River state in southern part of Nigeria were alleged to have been caught red-handed stealing mobile phones and laptop, and ‘jungle’ justice was meted out on them.

So the boys were caught stealing but that does not warrant such an act of barbarism and coward disregard for the rule of law and the sanctity of human life. The Norwegian monster, Breivik who murdered young people on a retreat was jailed for a mere twenty one years, actually he deserved the death penalty for his actions but Norway was trying to send a message out and I think it should be phrased thus ”WE ARE CIVILISED”

This act of taking laws into one’s own hands shows the level in which a society has disintegrated to, it’s disgraceful, inhumane and evil. I knew some people have been apprehended but what would come out from such a trial? It is really scary that at this age, human beings could descend so low to kill and even have the audacity of filming the whole sordid act.

The perpetrators should be apprehended and dealt with in a civilised manner. I am sure Hitler would be grinning wherever he is, because he’s got company.

Only God knows the madness inherent in people…
