The Change in Our Future

Humanity is progressing at great strides, or at least at the technological level. No aspect of our everyday lives goes by without technology touching it somehow; either if it’s for the good or bad, and I believe we’re only in the beginner stages. Artificial intelligence promises to give its machines the ability to think logically, using concepts, and advances in computer science, robotics and mathematics. Once they are achieved, I believe nothing will be the same. Things will change drastically. In the future AI will affect our lives with robots being very helpful as far as maneuvering around obstacles like stairs and the furniture in your home even your own pet.
Intelligent robots will not only clean the house like washing dishes and cleaning around the house for the owner of the house but it would also assemble the furniture or caring for the kids.
AI is also present in mining, firefighting, mine disposal, and handling radioactive materials, duties that are extremely dangerous for humans to indulge in.
Freedom time would most likely consider quality family time, reading books, resting, and having fun activities in the near future for human beings. Computers can do things that need logic, but logic is only one part of the human mind. Humans will continue to be useful workers; the argument goes, because of things like empathy, creativity, judgment, and critical thinking.
When made to follow a decision the way a computer would, all four of those qualities are sucked out of the interaction, and the service provided tends to stink. Overall, the kinds of jobs that respondents predicted humans would still be needed to do involved interactions with other people. Healthcare, education, and caring for the elderly and children were all seen as occupations that would still require a human touch. Besides, as far as delivery goes, you still need someone to carry something up the stairs. The idea that robots could make employment itself optional may sound bizarre. The end result could be more, not less anguish. We would still
have to find our place among the robots, except this time without work as a guidepost for defining a sense of purpose.
Several US Stated have already passed legislation allowing the autonomous, driverless car to roll down the road. The technology uses a LIDAR laser radar system and a range finder.
The system allows the vehicle to generate a detailed 3D map of its environment. The car then takes these generated maps and combine them with high-resolution maps of the world; producing different types of data medals that will allow it to drive itself. Artificial intelligence is nearly perfect it shifts responsibility away from a distracted driver, and its reaction time is much faster than humans. Some humans will never depend on this some would rather jus drive there selfincase anything bad was to happen to the car.
Artificial intelligence is being fused into medicine to help doctors detect diseases and save as many lives as can. Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is pioneering the use of unique software to review the heart and detect heart attacks even before they occur. Artificial muscles feature smart technology that mimic the movements of real muscles, and the latest intelligent devices can distinguish between life-saving medications and fake or tainted medications. But the cutting edge in AI software that tracks changes in health records to diagnose patients or warn doctors of potential risk factors. It’s designed to find problems with medications especially for primary care physicians. I believe the unintended consequences of this dramatic change could cause new problems that we have not yet faced in the past. The nature of some problems we could face in the future is developing a trustworthy relationship with robots. Can we trust robots? There are some reasons
