AI: Helpful and Dangerous

Many researchers use the term artificial intelligence (AI) to describe the thinking and intelligent behavior demonstrated by machines. While AI can be helpful to human beings, scientists warn, it can also be a threat.

The health care industry is one area artificial intelligence is already helping. AI can process huge amounts of data, so doctors can use the most up-to-date information to diagnose and treat patients. However, there is also a dangerous side to artificial intelligence. One example is combining drone aircraft technology and AI to create autonomous weapons.

It is inevitable that the technology will develop further. How will it continue to change life on our planet?
