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.

  • In my opion there is no need for the AI, it is just there for people to use if they are bored. I personally don't use it cause I don't see the point in talking to a computer. Find friends that you can talk to, not just a computer that just repondes with questions. 

  • I only use the AI chatbot to mess with them. I usually say something dumb to make them mad. I would feel horrible if my job was taken by a robot because that means its just going to become more and more common and there will be no job left for anyone anywhere.

  • I personally do not use my AI chatbot.  I think that it is stupid especially because you cannot get rid of it without paying for it. I think this was a dumb and useless invention. I do not think that AI should be introduced into the workforce because it is hard enough to find people to work and if you start introducing robots in the workforce then no one will want to work. 

  • I personally don't use the AI chatbot on snapchat. I have one time just to see what it is but it's just weird to me to talk to it. I do think AI should be introduced into the workforce but not to take over jobs. They should be there as an assistant to help the person doing the job.

    • I agree I don't use the chatbot, and when I do its for a joke or to see if i can make it do certain things, but I totally agree on your workforce opinion.

  • I do not like to use the AI chatbot. I think it is kinda weird because it knows where you are at all times and it knows everything. I think that the AI should not be added in the workforce cause whats the point of talking to people if they add it. I would be super mad if it took my job.

    • I also think its weird, mostly because I once asked it where I was and it said it had no idea since it didn't have access to my location but I then asked the same question later and it said i was in the school, at Harlan, Iowa, so I don't know what to think about it.

  • I use the AI chatbot as a joke. It's there to be your "virtual assistant" and I think could be very helpful to many. Even though I don't want or need it doesn't mean others don't. I would be very upset if my job was taken over by an AI. I don't really know what I would do.

    • Thats the same way I use My AI also, I also think people who are in dark places could use the chatbot as someone to talk to since it replies fast and is always supportive.

  • I dont like this AI thing is not helpful and not a good thing. i think it is annoying espesially because it was at the top of my screen and wouldnt go away. i think the governmnent is trying to find something but i wish it would go away
