    10 Programming Languages That Could Dominate The Market In The Future

    10 Programming Languages That Could Dominate The Market In The Future

    Technology is already present in almost everyone’s daily life, so the demand for programmers in particular has grown […]

    The emergence of AIs (Artificial Intelligence) is growing exponentially, today AI already exists in various segments, before, little was said or known, the vision of people who heard about AI was that it would be in a robot capable of thinking and possibly gaining consciousness (or even taking over the world) as in the movie I Robot.

    In 2022, chatGPT made quite a stir on the internet, it not only answered questions, but it also understood them and was able to create its own answers almost instantly. Since then, people’s interest in AI has skyrocketed and countless AIs have emerged.

    Progression of Artificial Intelligence

    To begin with, we should talk about Alan Turing, who is known as the father of computing, and who was also fundamental to Artificial Intelligence, if Artificial Intelligence is the way it is today, it is thanks to this scientist. Moving on, we have Eliza, the first chatbot, created by MIT. In 1972, Edward H. Shortliffe was the first to combine AI with medicine, even though it was never implemented due to the computational limitations of the time.

    In 2010, IBM launched WATSON, an artificial intelligence designed to respond to queries in everyday language, with a specific focus on catering to the needs of businesses. Virtual assistants emerged in 2011, such as Siri, which is still used today, then Cortana and Alexa in 2014 and two years later, Google Assistant.

    The AI boom

    Developed by OpenAI, in 2022 it launched ChatGPT, which reached over 0.1 billion users in just a few days. This was an absurd number of users, which meant that it couldn’t cope with the demand, often causing people to have to wait for the flow of users to decrease before they could use it. Today, this problem has been solved and is widely used around the world.

    Another AI that has had a boom with ChatGPT is Midjourney, a tool capable of creating images using only user descriptions. It has reached such an advanced level that it is difficult to distinguish whether an image was made by an Artificial Intelligence or not.

    These two AIs have gained the most visibility in recent years, but there are AIs in other segments, such as video, sound, analytics, slides and website generators.

    Morality vs. AI

    Artificial intelligence (AI) has changed the lives and work of many people for the better. However, it also brings some ethical challenges that we need to consider.

    One of the main challenges is the question of moral responsibility. Who is responsible for the actions of an AI system? If an AI makes a mistake that causes harm, who should be held responsible? One example is Tesla’s cars. If an accident happens with the car on Autopilot, who is to blame? There have already been some accidents and Tesla has stated that it is not responsible for accidents that happen when it is on Autopilot, as the driver is ultimately responsible. Many of these accidents happened because the Autopilot function was used in inappropriate places.

    Delving deeper into the moral issue, imagine that a car on Autopilot comes across a child on a bicycle, and next to it on the sidewalk is an old lady, as there is no time to brake, it would have only two choices, run over the youngster or the old lady. Which would be the right choice? Or the best choice?

    Another challenge is algorithmic bias. Artificial Intelligence systems undergo training using datasets, and these datasets may inadvertently incorporate existing biases present in society. As a result, AI can inadvertently perpetuate these prejudices.

    Privacy is also an important concern. AI requires large amounts of data to train, and This data may encompass personal information. How can we ensure that this data is protected?

    AI-driven automation is also causing changes in the labor market. Machines are replacing workers in some areas, mainly manual labor, and AIs are also creating jobs, but for skilled labor, which can lead to unemployment and social inequalities.

    Finally, the manipulation of information and the spread of disinformation are urgent moral challenges. AI can be used to create fake content that can be used to deceive people. As an example, we have chatGPT itself, it makes up answers in case you don’t know. So how can we protect the integrity of information?

    These challenges are complex and there are no easy answers. However, it’s important that we start thinking about them now, before it’s too late.
