Ep. 49 What’s Up With AI?

This week on the Carolina Snowflakes Podcast we’re trying to figure out what’s up with AI. AI or Artificial Intelligence is something most of us have heard of, but how much do we really know about the ways in which it’s being used or will be used in the future?

Much like the spread of Covid-19, AI technology is growing at an exponential rate. As it turns out, we humans struggle to understand the concept of exponential growth. This is why we were so caught off guard by the arrival of Covid-19 in the U.S despite countless professionals trying their darndest to warn the masses ahead of time.

And like the scientists who tried to warn us about the virus, there happens to also exist scientists warning of the fast approaching AI technology. Most of these scientists happen to be the ones working in the field of AI. But, is anyone listening? Eeeeeehhhh…

Now this doesn’t mean we’re going to wake up one day with a bunch of robots running around our homes and toilet paper missing from store shelves, but it does mean that as AI technology becomes more advanced there will be real-world consequences— consequences for us humans as well as for the AI we foster. It’s probably in our best interest to be thinking about these things BEFORE they happen. Congress, are you listening?

Be sure to tune in to hear what these real-world consequences might be and to hear how AI is already being utilized in areas such as medicine and business.  Plus, listen to a conversation our Snowflake Amanda recently had with the Emerson AI chat bot that claimed it knows how to resurrect dead cats. Say what?!

That’s right, what’s up with AI?
