Is Artificial Intelligence Good or Bad for Society?

As we all know, artificial intelligence is a very newfound technology in our growing world, while many support and encourage it, others may have different beliefs on what it could do or how it could impact society. There are many reasons to both sides of this newfound technology and what it is capable of. Whilst many are worried are about AI taking over jobs others think that it could do our jobs better than we ever could.


Some of the upsides to using AI- aren't only for production and factory purposes, AI could be used as a command center to complete certain actions quicker and more efficient. Also, AI could be used as a easier and faster way to find information as it can search the internet at light speeds. It also could be used as a program to help and talk to people who are lonely, a great example of AI being used this way is the new snapchat AI chatbot, It was made to help and talk to people as their very own companion. But, AI can be used many other ways to benefit society and its potential is incredible, as we have only scratched the surface of what AI can do.


Although there are many benefits of AI there is some possible downsides such as, it could take away peoples ability of manual labor, and this could be detrimental to society because their are people who value what they do as a job and would not like it to be taken over and done better by a robot. At the same time the AI chatbots could pose a threat to casual interaction, some people could like talking to this AI than other actual people. Another reason is that AI could threat our knowledge at the same time, because while schools teach kids, the AI could just provide answers or do the work for them like the new AI ChatGPT which is doing essays and papers for students and not allowing them to do it on their own and learn the material.


In my opinion I think that the benefits and potential of AI is so great that it would be a shame and a huge mistake to let such an amazing new era in technology go away, I think that AI's potential is to great for it to just be thrown away, it could help fix some world issues extremely fast and do certain things faster and better than humans can, overall I think it would make society a better place and help the world run smoother.

    • I don't think AI is trying to steal information because that is a huge risk for the comoany, and if the compnay is big enough to build a AI such as snapchat, I wouldn't think they would risk their whole company to just get information from users.

  • I think that AI can both be good and bad. AI could have the ability to take over the workforce leaving us with no jobs but at the same time, AI can make a lot of things easier. I'm 50/50 on this subject so it could be good or it could be bad we really just have to wait and see.

    • I totally agree with your standpoint here at will be hard to tell where and what will happen with the evolution of AI

  • I personally have never used an AI chatbot and don't neccessarily plan are using one. I feel that if AI were to be introduced into the work force they'd eventually take over and nobody would have jobs. I would be pissed if a robot took my job.

    • They could eventually take over but their will always be jobs that a AI could never do.

  • I have not used an AI chatbot because it creeps me out and I think that whatever it is, it trying to get information out of us. I think that AI could be helpful in the workforce, but only to a certain extent. However, I would not be happy if my job was taken over by an AI. There is no way that they have enough programing to do all that a human can do, so it is not worth it.

    • And I totally agree, but what I meant by introducing AI into the workforce I meant more by the means of Manufacturing not other jobs that only humans have to capability to do, at the moment.

  • I don't use AI chatbot and I get annoyed by it because I can't delete it off of my chat feed. I do think, however, that we should introduce AI to the work force. It will only do what you  program it to do. I would be mad if my job got taken, but I get it from a business stand point because it would be much cheaper.

    • My AI doesnt neccesarily annoy me but I don't think it is cheap by any means either, it may not be cheap but at the speed it can do things businesses will make that profit back very fast.

  • I think that AI is kinda creepy. I think that we could use it to make jobs a bit easier. However, I don't like how we are currently using AI. I think that we could be much smarter with how we use this technology and not how we are right now.
