  • Will Artificial intelligence create more jobs,than it destroys.?

    Best answer: No. Nothing create more jobs than it destroys. Or almost nothing. At least as far as B2B service (as AI is mainly) is concerned. For a simple reason: a new technology is adopted if it cost less than the old one. And cost less because it destroys more job than it creates. Did ATM created more jobs than it... show more
    Best answer: No.

    Nothing create more jobs than it destroys. Or almost nothing. At least as far as B2B service (as AI is mainly) is concerned.
    For a simple reason: a new technology is adopted if it cost less than the old one. And cost less because it destroys more job than it creates.

    Did ATM created more jobs than it destroyed? Of course not. Surely it created jobs in ATM manufacturers. But it destroyed more bank tellers jobs. Otherwise, no bank would have adopted ATM.
    That is how it works. That is how progress works.

    Is that a reason to forbid ATM and force banks to hire army of bank tellers to give the customer the same capacity to get cash 7/7, 24/24? Of course not.
    Because, surely, it destroyed jobs, but it also cost less money to customers. And what those customers will do with this money? Spend it on other things. So indirectly, it created jobs that are invisible. You will never hear a farmer say "I've hired people thanks to ATM invention". Because there is no way he can know that. Nevertheless, it is probably true; people have more money so they can spend more on food.

    Same goes for AI. Anywhere AI will be adopted, that will be because it destroys more jobs that it creates. For example, people from call centers should be worried. I've worked for a company that replace those people with AI. Not for the whole conversation, sure. But for the first part: we are now able to make conversational agent able to ask "what can I do for you", listen for the answer, as complicated it is, and understand correctly which service the client should be redirected to. And after all, real human doing that part of the job now are already just executing algorithm like a robot, so it is not surprising if they can be replaced by real robots.
    But if it cost less to have real (underpaid, probably oversee) people to do the job, AI will never be used in that domain. But it will cost less to use AI (even if that mean handling AI errors, maintaining the computers that host the AI, etc). Because it will destroy jobs.
    I know that is harsh for those people who will lost their jobs (I've lost my job myself several times in my life). But, globally, that loss is not a bad news. Because it will indirectly create jobs not only visibly in the AI domain, but also, invisibly, in all domains.

    People are richer today than they were in my parents generation
    The progress of the wealth is not very fairly distributed, nevertheless, even the poor are less poor than in my parents generation. In my parents generation, in my country, the poor were starving. Now, mainly, they don't. Their problem is more housing. In my parents generation, the poor could not have decent health care. Now (in my country; if you are American, still not in yours) they have.
    Why is that possible? Because things cost less. Because you need less workhour to build things, and because people have more money to spend on those things, so the rise of consumption diminished the cost.

    We have (my country as much as America) lot of progress to make so than everybody benefit of this progress, and so that nobody is left behind. But nevertheless, it should never be a bad news when less work is needed than before.
    Each time something that should be obviously a good news is said to be a bad news, that is just by ignorance. Because the direct consequence seems bad, and the indirect consequence impossible to precisely enumerate.

    It is exactly (but from the other side) like an economist would say that a war or a disaster is a good thing for economy. That is never true, obviously. But the direct consequences (economics) seems good: more production, more GDP, so economics growth. And the indirect consequences (a generation of less educated people, effort on reconstruction that could have been used on progress we will never know, etc) impossible to foresee.

    When humanity learn to do automatically what needed lot of works before, that is a good news for humanity. That is more work power we can devote for something else. Even if economist are able to enumerate bad consequences and unable to enumerate good consequences, good consequences are always more than bad.

    Best answer: This sounds more like a complaint than a question.

    I don't know exactly what you've done to study "the little theory that he teaches", but clearly it isn't working for you. If everyone else in class is stuck, too, maybe you have a lousy teacher. If some students are getting the idea and able to write programs without copying them from somewhere else, then maybe your methods need to change. Maybe it's something else.

    One thing I can tell you is that copying answers from a solutions manual isn't programming. It's typing.

    Sure, it's a good idea to type in (not copy-paste, by the way) example programs as part of learning how they work and getting ideas you can use in your own code. The next step is to write code on your own; to find out if what you think you've learned actually works or if you need to look more carefully at that example and others to fix a mistaken impression.

    The point of the "little theory" is to show you a way of thinking about programming so maybe you don't have to repeat all the mistakes of past generations of programmers. You can move more quickly into making creative new mistakes. :^)

With the acting you can do that as a side career, small, not too big to still have room for the main foundation which is the coding work, but enough so you don't feel sad about not doing it. Possibly, you can do the acting for plays and so on.

    Best answer: Pokemon Go is a loosy example of AR.
    It add virtual objects to "real" scene
    (it the case of pokemon go, just by drawing onto a picture taken by the camera).

    Google glasses another examples (this time, it is not drawing onto a picture taken by a camera, but drawing directly on the reality, or at least on a glass through which you see reality)

    An intermediate case is using a stereo camera to draw the background of image rendered by the VR helmet (I've tried that a decade ago. With the quite bad quality camera we had back then. And it is surprisingly natural. Your brain adapt quite quickly the the vision. Even without making any good effort to have correct scale and offset. After just 1 minute of adaptation, I was have to shake hand of other people, with a VR helmet on the head).


    It can also be the otherway round: instead of adding VR element onto real images, you can also add real image into a VR scene. That is also called AR.
    For example, including mirrors in a VR scene, in which you can see the picture of a front camera)


    In short, as long as you mix VR with reality (or images of reality), that is AR.

    Best answer: Roughly:
    AI is the fact to progam the computer not explicitly, but implicitly. To reach a wider goal: having program that can adapt to any situation, ideally even those not foreseen by the programmer.

    Other have mentioned machine learning. That is just one tool of AI, one tool to do that (implicit programming). The most famous one. But not the most important, and moreover, not the best to illustrate what AI is.

    IMHO the best way to apprehend what is AI goals and fundamentals is given by Nils Nisson's cube world.
    Nils Nilsson (almost the real founder of the discipline. Turing is often mentioned because of the "test", but Nilsson is the one who gave the first idea about how to go there), imagines a robot, trying to stack cubes in a given order.

    There are cubes on a table. Some are stacked onto others. Each of them are labelled with letters. The idea is to move cubes so that they are in the correct order.
    For example, if you have this situation:


    C  B

    And you want to have




    You can program your robot to do the following operations:
    grab A
    put A on the table
    grab C
    put C on the table
    grab B
    put B on C
    grab A
    put A on B

    But such a program is explicit. And would work only if the situation is the one described.
    For example, it would not work if the initial situation is:
    B
    A
    C

    So, Nilsson's solution is instead of simply using procedures (grab, put), to describe what those procedure can do, and under which condition they can be used. And let the computer compute the correct sequence of procedures to apply.

    Grab X:
    precondition: X must be on the top of its stack onto a cube Y. And robot hand must be empty
    postcondition (effect): X is in robot hand, and Y is now on the top of its stack.

    precondition: X is alone on its stack (on the table). And the robot hand must be empty
    postcondition: X is in robot hand, and the stack no longer exist

    Put X on Y:
    precodition: X must be in robot hand. Y must be on the top of its stack
    postcondition: robot hand is empty. X is on the top of its stack, on Y.

    Using this, the computer is able to compute, from the initial situation, and from the wanted situation, the correct sequence of operations itself.


    You use such program very often, if you are a coder: a Makefile is nothing but that. A description of what you can do, when you can do it, and what is the effect. Each rule of a Makefile is
    effect: preconditions
                action

    That is what AI really is: method to let the computer decide by itself what is the correct courses of action to do to achieve a given goal.
    So that you program yhe algorithm not explicitly (giving a sequence of action) but implicitly (giving a description of each action effect, and giving an objective, so that the computer figure out itself what to do.

    Machine learning is only one tool available in that purpose (for example, it could be use to learn more and more accurate description of the actions. To learn, for example, that stacking too many cubes often lead to a collapsing of the stack)

    Photography portfolio/photography service AND Basic audio equipment rental under the same website? Please enlighten me. I plan to buy a monthly web hosting service which it includes a domain name for "free" with annual payment. My idea is to buy/register two different domain names from another site like GoDaddy, build different web pages for specific services (audio and photography) and link them with their respective domain names. That would keep both services separated and be able to target different clients using one hosting account. Can I link a domain name to a specific webpage within a website? Hosting services I am looking at: weebly, hostgator & wix

    Best answer: A robot that can mimic a human including perfect balance, voice, voice recognition and be able to do my programming for me. It would also need to be able to hold conversations, and do my house work. It would be nice for it to do my job, wash the car,do the dishes and walk the dog. It would not argue or cause any conflict and be able to answer the phone and communicate properly with the person on the other end.

    Let me know when it is done and give me rights to the program.
