It is clear that AI is here to stay and that it is going to make our lives, as we know it so far, totally different, that is, on a personal level it will help us make our lives easier. For example, our smartphones use it to personalize their shortcuts, Amazon and its product recommendations… At a professional level we will see how those jobs whose information is structured will be replaced, making us more productive and creating other new job niches, nothing new on the other hand, since every advance or new technology is associated with the elimination and creation of other jobs. The expert in Artificial intelligence and academic director at the U-tad Javier G. Algarra University Center, offers us some interesting reflections on its dangers.
Should we worry about Artificial Intelligence?
So why all this fuss around AI since 2023 has started? The only real reason that should worry us and that poses a real danger is the monopoly around its development. and not the technology itself, which, to make a simple comparison, is nothing more than our mobile predictive text but ‘in style’, since it has enormous predictive capacity due to the numerous parameters it can analyze.
Precisely because the resources needed to train a GPT (Generative Pre-Trained Transformer) are so enormous, only half a dozen organizations in the world have them within their reach, therefore, whoever controls the source of information will control the market, that is, it will dominate public opinion. This is well known by Google which, thanks to the intelligent application of linear algebra, built a search engine that displaced all the others and therefore exercises an overwhelming position of absolute dominance in advertising.
In the race for the future of business, OpenAI leads the way and its possible alliance with Microsoft threatens Google. “Without a monopoly, the risk of a supreme AI that the whole world would connect to disappears. For governments and controlling agencies, this is bad news, since a single elephant, which due to its size is also a political actor, can be tamed, but not hundreds of thousands of mice, each with their own ideas and interests.» says Javier G. Algarra, academic director at the U-tad University Center and artificial intelligence expert
For said expert, AI is not something new, it has already more than 7 decades of development, and at U-tad they have been training professionals who are already leading and will lead the future of this technology for more than 10 years through the Degrees in ‘Software Engineering’ and the Double Degree in ‘Computational Mathematics and Software Engineering’.
«AI is a technology that is going to change the world, and of course it is going to change jobs and the way of working, but it also brings very significant social benefits. For example, him dialogue with machines will be much more natural, reducing the technological barrier for groups that suffer from exclusion such as the elderly or those with some type of sensory deficiency, it will also be able to translate any image or film in real time for those who suffer from vision diseases. Likewise, it opens up unprecedented creative possibilities for artists, generating new forms of expression, facilitates the care of babies or dependent people in situations in which they require urgent help, as well as managing the traffic of a large city depending on the circumstances.» Explain Javier G. Algarra.
