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.

    • It may be like that to some people, such as yourself, but I also think the AI could be very useful especially to people who in their lows, and dark places as it is always supportive.

  • Although I think that AI is very beneficial in some ways it can be unbeneficial like when it comes to taking people's jobs some people value their jobs and they just don't want it to be taken away because of some freaking robot. I think that it is extremely unfair because some people have actually worked really hard at these jobs and just get it taken away because of an artificially intelligent robot-type thing, it's hurtful. Although I say this I actually think that the AI is actually really cool Snapchat AI it's told to create its own personality based on the questions that you ask and that is incredible in some way you can make your own Artificial intelligence just by asking questions. How simple is that?

    • Workers may not like the thought of their job being taken, but look at it this way, it's not the AI that would be taking your job it would be the business, if you look at it from a business standpoint as a CEO, AI could bring in more profit than a human could.

  • I think that AI can be beneficial for repetitive jobs that humans aren't needed to do. These jobs include repetitive manufacturing and some agricultural uses. I think that AI is advanced to the level we need for now. I do not think that it needs to be any more advanced.

    • I would have to agree and disagree, I think AI would be very good for repetitive jobs, but in no way do I think we should stop researching and advancing this newfound technology.

  • I think it is good becasue it can help us more than hurt us. There really is nothing wrong with AI and how they can help us everyday. Introducing AI into the workforce can be good even though most people would disagree with it. But what most people don't realize is that what when one job gets taken away, another is created. 

    • I disagree with you here. I think that AI will hurt us more than it will hurt us. I kinda think that AI is really creepy. They know too much! Just like the Snapchat AI, it is really creepy of how much it knows about me.

    • I could not have said it better myself, new jobs will always be found, because their will always be things that AI just aren't capable of doing.

  • I think entertainment has clouded our judgement on the usage of AI. There are a lot of movies and video games that depict artificial intelligence as evil and always wanting to take over the world or something like that, I think we'll find out what happen's when we get to that point.

    • I totally agree that movies has clouded our judgement on AI, But I do not think we will get even close to that point in AI within our lifetime.
