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.

  • While this topic is a bit overdone, you did a good job with it. Be sure to continue replying all week.

  • I think that AI could be a super helpful tool. It is very direct and straight to the point at answering questions that google would draw out and add lots of extra information. I think they are useful to an extent but not reasonable enough to be taking people's job, it'd just get out of hand.

  • I would not be happy if my job was taken over by the new AI of the world, my job is not a AI friendly job, I work at a hog confiment so not many AI can walk through the confinments and not have some sort of preoplems so truyly I would be mad if AI took over my job.

  • I think that AI is a good source, yes we have google that could answer questions but AI is straight forward. I think that most students would take advantage of the ChatGPT but it could help with other things. I don't think we should take it to far and use it for everything especially jobs. People need to make money and just simply have something to keep them occupied.

  • No, I would not use an AI chatbot because it sounds incredibly boring. I think that AI can be used in the workforce for hard, dangerous jobs, but we should leave the easy jobs for people. I would feel very dissapointed if my job was taken over by an AI.

  • I can see how Artificial Intelligence could be beneficial to society, but I can also see how it could be harmful. AI would be a good option to take over very dangerous jobs so that human workers are not required to risk their lives. But, it should also not replace jobs that are needed by humans to keep them from being unemployed.

  • I think that Ai is both good and bad for society. They are bad because they take human jobs and waste our time(Snapchat ai is worthless). They are good because they carry lots of knowledge and they only get smarter as time goes on, helping the world with their discoveries.

  • I don't think it is bad or good. I think it depends on how we use it. I also think it depends on what we using it for. Because AI can be helpful in the work field but other people are using it for fun or other things. 

  • I personally don't use AI like chatGPT, and I probably never will just because i dont get the point of having them. I don't think I will be very happy if my job got taken by AI, because then I would have no money, so I don't think it should be added to the workforce.

  • I think AI chatbots like chatGPT should only be used for special military jobs or developers and not for common citezens. That much power should come with atleast some sort of responsibility. I've heard of people shutting down stadium screens and lights with chatGPT hacking into their bluetooth and shutting them down. I think that my job will definitely be taken over by AI but someone will still need to supervise and operate it.
