Artificial intelligence.

This is a buzzword that has recently exploded.

Of course we've all been watching artificial intelligence as it developed over the last 10 years.

But especially in the last one or two years, it has exploded.

I think it's a Pandora's box.

It's letting out all sorts of dangerous and bad things.

But like a Pandora's box, we can't put the bad things back in the box.

They're out and they're out to stay.

Even if we went and shut down all the artificial intelligence programs and systems today, people already know how to do it.

So they'd go and recreate it so you can't stop it.

Now.

We have only one choice.

We have to adapt to it.

We have to adapt ourselves to it and we have to adapt our Children to it.

Pandora.

Um, pardon me, artificial intelligence isn't all bad.

It's very powerful and people are very excited about it because it can really help us in wonderful ways.

But other people are quite worried about it.

There's dangers.

It depends on how you use the artificial intelligence.

For instance, there is the danger of Deepfakes.

People are using ai to put up pictures and videos that don't contain contain true images and they mislead us.

They're lying to us and they make us think the wrong thing.

Another one is Weapons, Autumn Ization making automatic weapons that are run by artificial intelligence.

That's just plain scary.

And in that case I don't want to be in any kind of a conflict zone at all.

And I don't want to make myself any kind of a target hard to do.

A lot of people are also worried about job loss.

Me personally, I'm not too worried for a few reasons.

Number one technology rarely results in a net job loss.

Number two, with proper training, we can always get new jobs to manage the technology because that's always been the case in the past, although AI is a bit different from past new technologies, so we'll just have to wait and see."
