How to differentiate between AI and Wisdom?

The Present Scenario

The most amazing technological phenomenon of the millennial generation has galloped and overshadowed everything else. From the times of ‘Turing test’ to personal perceptions of tech enthusiasts, the mighty technology has breathtakingly establishes itself to captivate the humans senses and empower the world for the same. Lives of the commoners are reaching an unbelievable level of productivity all impacted by these.

A food for thought…

Artificial intelligence is like a tool, and it is used for both ill and good intentions. Cars and motorcycles have been invented to help us travel faster all over the country as long as there are roads, but it has also lead to many car accidents on the road. Is that good or bad? The internet has also produced a lot of useful information for everyone all across the world, with just a click of ‘search’. It also brought the younger generation to a whole world of inappropriate content, which they could via VPN. Is that good? On the similar lines,

This actually leads us to really delve deeper into Artificial Intelligence. This new technology gives us access to unimaginable things and it can be used to improve the treatment of various diseases and saving many, many lives. We are now looking at mini-robots, self-driven cars, virtual assistants and many more. These actually heighten the efficiency of your lifestyles with this type of technology.

AI will be the new ‘sun’ for the next generation, but like every other new technology. Just like any other newly rolled out phenomenon, it all dependents on how we take it.

 

BY FAR THE GREATEST DANGER OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IS THAT PEOPLE CONCLUDE TOO EARLY THAT THEY UNDERSTAND IT

 

Winding into Wisdom

Wisdom is an inborn ability. It is a virtue and the person has the capability to think in a high level of common sense, knowledge and an understanding of the issue and act accordingly. They can see through the consequence of the courses of action and choose the best alternative. But, more than all that, it is the ability to see, perceive and react appropriately.

AI is helping technologists build the fastest motorbike on earth. Wisdom is knowing that you should not ride it during a bad weather as it is unsafe. The motorbike might be fast but it can also be deadly.

AI is helping systems get better in-synced with the thoughts. Wisdom is banking in the money manually in case of a credit card fraud. For example. The new Pay Wave on Samsung phones can be hacked easily by just scanning the pay machine in the man’s back pants pocket with the phone in his pocket. It is so easy to get scammed by Pay Wave and perhaps even if someone stole your credit card. Wisdom would be not to use Pay Wave and just using your debit card, or so, just bring cash and not a lot of credit cards out of the house.

Touching our Lives

AI is making the best Facebook profile with lots of likes and lots of fans. Wisdom means that no matter likes you have on that photo, it doesn’t matter. However, the less you have on Facebook the better, as no one can stalk you and steal information. It would be wiser to shut down the Facebook unless you want to use it for business purposes (according to some).

AI is changing the cosmos. It has lots of development in detection of cancers, brain disorders, and severe illnesses and so on. Wisdom is knowing what to eat to avoid certain diseases like cancer or gout and diabetes. One must know that eating healthy will sustain a longer living and there are various ways to avoid certain illnesses through the gym and a healthy diet.

AI is empowering Whatsapp in helping us detect and bubble burst the fire spread fake news. Wisdom is putting down the phone during a friendship gathering and being there for them. Creating a lively chat will forge more bonds. It is more efficient to create more bonds in people that chatting with them on social media. 

Some More…

AI is observing people through a camera. Wisdom is meeting people face to face instead of using a webcam. There are just so many scams and perverts on the internet.

AI means using Facebook and having best friends forever. Wisdom knows that there is no such thing as best friends forever. Once you delete the person on Facebook or write a nasty comment, there will no longer be any friendships between you and him. However, if you are wise, you will use Facebook wisely in order to maintain your friends, like video calling or voice calling if your friend is overseas. Cyberbullying should not be tolerated.

AI is manipulating your data obtained on the internet. Wisdom is how to use the data obtained. If you obtained someone’s photo to abuse the person, that is wrong. If you are wise, you should attain data for your assignment and get an A out of it. Google isn’t wicked. It’s ‘how we use it’.

AI is telling us the most appropriate places to cut down more trees to build houses. Wisdom is how to preserve nature as we now have the greenhouse effect. AI makes development easier, but it is neglecting the fact that we need more greens.

The grand technology is enhancing the materialism in life and getting so attached it. Your car, your TV, your house, while wisdom is not getting attached to the material things in life. We earn a lot and get to the top just so that we have lots of material goods in life, but in real fact, we should never get attached to it in the first place. That would be wisdom. We need AI to improve our standard of living, but we also need the wisdom not to get attached to it. Once we know that AI is a big thing, we definitely want to use it, but at the same time, AI also destroys our lives to a certain extent. We must be wise and try to use AI wisely.

That is all for today! See you!
