Artificial intelligence and algorithms: pros and cons | DW Documentary (AI documentary)
Developments in artificial intelligence (AI) are leading to fundamental changes in the way we live. Algorithms can already detect Parkinson's disease and cancer, and control both cars and aircraft. How will AI change our society in the future?
This documentary journeys to the hot spots of AI research in Europe, the USA and China, and looks at the revolutionary developments which are currently taking place. The rapid growth of AI offers many opportunities, but also many dangers. AI can be used to create sound and video recordings which will make it more and more difficult to distinguish between fact and fiction. It will make the world of work more efficient and many professions superfluous. Algorithms can decide whether to grant loans, who is an insurance risk, and how good employees are. But there is a huge problem: humans can no longer comprehend how algorithms arrive at their decisions. And another big problem is AI’s capacity for widespread surveillance. The Chinese city of Rongcheng is already using an AI-supported 'social credit system' to monitor and assess its citizens. Does AI pose a danger to our personal freedoms or democracy? Which decisions can we leave to the algorithms - and which do we want to? And what are AI’s social implications?

    Setting up anti-Christ system under the guise of convenience. I like interacting with cashiers and barristers! Removing people makes us less social and more likely not to care about the well being of others. I appreciate technology in some aspects, but China has crossed the line. I won’t be surprised when the entire world adopts their system of monitoring. That’s the future, so you better know Jesus!

    This is totally inhuman. Our humanity is simply being manipulated and terminated in existence. Who’s making these decisions and why? We must not allow this to happen and continue. Humanity must triumph and our liberty, freedom of speech and democracy must prevail. 🙏😤 👍 Technology is amazing but this is beyond ridiculously destructive to obliterate humanity.

    The reasons behind every advancement in A.I are lies. It’s not for better Health, eco systems, etc. It’s who can gather the most data about individuals and sell it to a much bigger profit. They’re giving you free thing just so you can use it and in exchange what are you giving ? Nothing? Life it’s that good? Nothing is free. When it’s free, your the product. Don’t ever forget that phrase . Today’s world it’s all about data capitalism and if you haven’t realized it yet, you better wake up.

    10 years ago I was skeptical of the concept of a technological singularity. However now you have machine learning and its ability design and then improvise on those designs in almost no time all. Eventually as software improves, there will be no limit to its problem solving and/or design and manufacturing capabilities. Spawning swarms of autonomous vehicles, building large-scale synthetic structures both on Earth and in space, or generating endless life-like digital entertainment, will be a breeze.

    Anyone else notice how they said cameras that steal our privacy for so called security helps in crime solving not crime stopping. So after you are robbed, raped or murdered they can possibly solve the crime not save you from it happening in the first place. Is that the "security" everyone was expecting or looking forward to when this surveillance bs was brought up 20 yrs ago? Nothing has changed all they can do is come clean up the mess after the fact.
