    Actually I'm quite excited about it. As long as it doesn't turn up to be a Terminator like scenario for Mother Earth, I think that we can have unlimited work-force at our disposal, willingly and happily doing the most time-consuming, irritating and boring stuff for us.

    Been studying AI for about 6 months. Been interested in it for about 30 years, when the data came out of Lotus 123.

    AI will change is changing our world as we speak. I.E. That little green square on your camera screen around faces.

    How will it change our world, nobody is sure. See Sergey Brin's letter to Google's employees.

    I tell my kids to get a job building AI to understand where the world is heading, so they can stay ahead!!

    I think the problem is that very few people involved in AI are really pausing to ask what the consequences of their actions may be. Yes, their intentions may be good, but consider a world where we had everything and nothing to aim for.

    We already see the effects that this has on society (albeit on a far smaller and less intense way).

    Until AI outperforms humans. Then it's just AI managing, maintaining and building other AI.

    Very interesting poll results. Why did you vote yes, maybe or no?

    I absolutly agree with the need to adapt to the evolving marketplace. Whether or not AI is going to replace a majority of "JOBS" in the next 5-15 years is dependant on how well the technology is developed and implemented. Yes there are learning curves for new AI, but those will get better as more creative and innovative ways are developed to make them learn and function faster and more accurately. It is also the same type of creativity and innovation that will create new industries and jobs for people, as there will always be the need for a human element in all that we do. Besides, what is the point of doing anything if you have no one to share it with?

    It's funny you mention robotics with car manufactures but in Tesla's case it has created more problems then it has helped. I think Tesla is a great example how we lean to much on Robots to complete tasks more efficiently and in the end they don't solve the types of problems that we created them to do. Now they have cut down of the machines and started to fill humans with those positions because they are more reliable and can do more things/tasks, burning more capitol on wasted machines & capitol to staff the human. In my opinion the time line is a lot longer than 5-10 years, I think AI is overly optimistic the switch will be a lot more granular than we realize, and not this smooth slick transition.

    This is a pretty interesting video that really talks about the state of AI. At this moment in time, there is not too much to worry about, but as Andrew Ng pointed out, technology moves at an extremely rapid pace. One day you are relaxed and the next day you are stressed

    I believe Artificial intelligence will make us change our approach in our business. Artificial intelligence will especially change the industries and factories. To stay in the competition, we have to be one step ahead of our rivals.

    Artificial intelligence will have a major say in the productivity level of companies. You need to stay one step ahead of your opponents. If you don't, then you can see the result of Nokia. I am in favour of using artificial intelligence in companies but within some limits.

    I believe that AI is going to make a huge change as to how businesses are ran. But right now, it's difficult to get ahold of it. Everything that's AI generated takes a crapton of time, CPU/GPU processing and money to make.

    The best thing to do prepare is learn all you can about coding and look at AI videos. If AI is going to take over jobs, its best to be exposed to it now.

    We need to adapt our skills to suit AI hand in hand. AI cannot do everything.

    I spent 1 year making a specific type of marketing AI which will in my opinion help me retire. I will present this system inside a JV sub forum very soon. I will probably make a journey thread along side of it. I believe that AI will have crucial role when it comes to marketing and product promotion in general, especially in e-commerce niche.

    Being "smart enough" is only a small part of it. I know many people who are very intelligent but don't really have the opportunity or resources to advance. Plus, not everyone can do internet marketing, or programming, or any of the new jobs that the internet affords because when those jobs become oversaturated, it will hurt everyone involved.

    That being said, AI will make many jobs redundant, but it isn't going to begin with physical automation. Physical automation is very experimental and complex, and things like medicine and many digital jobs will be augmented or overtaken by advances in AI long before we have warehouse and delivery robots in every city.

    The unfortunate thing is that many people simply won't be able to compete, and pivoting into a new career is impossible, for many reasons.

    Pivoting into another career is not impossible, people do it all the time by going back to university or taking vocational courses. With machine learning and programming there are so many free resources that someone can use to gain knowledge of it. The only problem is experience with clusters, that is not cheap. However there are ways to get experience without spending so much at once. You could start with a small system, and add in more nodes over time. Search ebay for cheap parts, or get parts at auction when government agencies unload. There is also the option to get a loan to pay for things or just start a club with some other people and everyone chips in and gets allocated time.
