Artificial intelligence is spreading

Artificial intelligence, also known as AI, is entering several sectors, industries, products and services. Artificial intelligence includes computer systems that are capable of performing tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as analysis, problem solving, pattern recognition, and language proficiency and comprehension. Artificial intelligence can benefit citizens, businesses and the public sector.

AI benefits the public

According to the European Commission, citizens can for example get better healthcare and safer and cleaner transportation through AI. Furthermore companies can develop innovative products and services or ensure more efficient production. The public sector can achieve more sustainable services, for example in transport, energy and waste management. In your everydaylife, AI can potentially also have an impact on your gaming lifestyle. When you visit popular gambling sites in India, you may meet a competitor who is actually just a computer. In that way the computer is programmed with human intelligence, that makes it possible for it to play as sufficient as a human being.

Transparent, traceable and under human control

The European Commission calls for the development of artificial intelligence in a way that ensures that AI systems, among other things, become transparent, traceable and under human control, and that the data sets used are objective. Researches are in the process of developing and utilizing artificial intelligence, while at the same time focusing on ethical and security issues. In many ways, the use of artificial intelligence is one of the greatest ethical dilemmas of our time. Technology and intelligent computers can help us solve many tasks. But we must not jeopardize security or ethics.
