How AI can change entertainment, education, elections, and everything in between.

Artificial intelligence, or artificial intelligence, is really cool and really scary. Not as scary as “Terminator”, but because artificial intelligence is increasingly repeating things we normally define as “human”. A few years ago, creating near-instant text and images seemed impossible. Today, the posts are showing chat And Dall • E2 Streaming on social media. As someone who has grown up in the digital age, I have to imagine this feels similar to the early days of Google and similar search engines. However, I believe the ramifications of advanced AI and machine learning mean a lot more to our society. Let’s think about the implications in three areas I’m interested in: entertainment, education, and elections.
“The use of AI in the entertainment industry has the potential to bring about positive and negative changes. On the positive side, AI can be used to help writers with writer’s block, providing inspiration and ideas for new stories and characters. However, there is also potential for using AI to create volumes Large amounts of low-quality content with minimal effort AI algorithms can be trained to produce content designed to be as eye-catching as possible, regardless of whether the content is high-quality or not One concern is that AI can be used to create content based on the work of artists and directors without their consent, which raises ethical and copyright issues.”
But does anyone want to read AI-generated content?
Hate to break it to you, but the above quote was written by ChatGPT. All I asked to do was to create an ‘entertainment’ section of an article giving a title and a few key points. This does not mean that humans will lose their place in the entertainment industry. Pieces with more sentiment and contextual analysis will be safe for a while. But content such as sports updates, traffic alerts, and weather forecasts may be run entirely by a large language paradigm such as ChatGPT, especially in textual media.
If search engines make it easier for students to cheat, ChatGPT basically gives them pre-cooked answers on a plate. He spits out very well written and detailed answers to just about any question I could think of to ask him (including some old quizzes I had access to). But accuracy is ChatGPT’s biggest limitation for students right now. This usually manifests itself through incomplete, outdated, and sometimes just misinformation. Graders will have to rely on this, as there is no easy test for whether text is being generated by AI at scale. yes, The tools are therebut can be tricked (especially when mixing human and machine generated content) and is not effective to use for hundreds of tasks.
In fact, I’m pretty sure teachers all over the world are checking machine-generated responses to their questions without even realizing it.
While this seems like a barrier to education, remember that AI can also be a great tool for learning. An enlightened chatbot can act as a personal expert for any student it consults. Try it yourself: ask chat Question after question on a specialized topic. Although it is not perfect, it has more than enough potential to radically change the way we learn.
Elections are complex enough already, so predicting the impact of AI here is a little trickier. However, it is easy to imagine how well-funded national campaigns could make use of AI. Communication with voters can be dramatically changed with a candidate-style chatbot that can provide instant, structured, and dynamic answers to voter questions. Humans will likely still have a role in establishing connections over the phone and in person, but AI can communicate faster and perhaps more persuasively than a human. Voters may feel more drawn to candidates if they feel they have spoken to them personally, even if they know they are talking to a bot.
On the flip side, negative fake interaction is likely to go up. Social media already has a bot problem, and this is likely to get worse as bots better imitate humans. What happens when thousands of accounts can be directed to share the same feeling (positive or negative) about a candidate, but they can’t be distinguished from real people? Moreover, malicious bots that spread fake videos will only lead to this Continue to rise In terms of quality and quantity. Deepfake detection methods may evolve with them, but by the time they are called upon, the damage may already have been done.
The world of artificial intelligence is exciting and terrifying at the same time. New tools will open countless doors to heights we never thought possible — but they may also close doors we thought were safe. My above predictions are just predictions, but I can say this with 100% certainty: AI technology will evolve rapidly in the coming years and society will have to adapt. I sincerely hope we open more doors than we close in the process.
