AI isn’t perfect. But neither are other tools we use each day

AI still has a lot to learn before it can handle our demands without failing. But let’s not get too picky, there’s always a silver lining!

For instance, who doesn’t love it when your smart speaker ignores you, like a stubborn teenager? Or when your phone’s autocorrect transforms “I love you” into “I loathe you”? Such sweet moments.

Seriously though, I think it’s wise to keep things in perspective. For example:

-We use and rely upon automobiles to get from one place to another, but they occasionally break down and are the cause of millions of injuries and over a million deaths each year around the world.

-Every day we use our smartphones to stay connected with loved ones and access important information, but they’re also a leading cause of distraction and can negatively impact our mental health when used excessively.

-We rely on our credit cards to make purchases and manage our finances, but they’re vulnerable to fraud and can leave us with financial losses and identity theft.

-We use elevators to get to higher floors with ease, but they can also malfunction or break down, causing inconvenience and even injury.

-Most of us use microwaves to heat up food quickly, but they can also cause food to become overheated, potentially leading to burns and other injuries.

-We rely on our computers to complete work and access information, but they can be hacked and vulnerable to viruses, leading to data breaches and other security risks.

-We use power tools to complete tasks more quickly and efficiently, but they can also cause serious injury if not used properly or if they malfunction.

-Many of us use public transportation to get around, but it can also be unreliable, leading to missed appointments and other issues.

-We rely on airplanes to take long trips, but 70-90 times a year the world experiences tragic airplane crashes.

-We use our bikes to stay active and get around without relying on cars, but they can be dangerous if we don’t follow traffic rules or if we’re not wearing proper safety gear.

-We rely on our home security systems to keep us safe and secure, but they can also malfunction or be compromised by hackers, leaving us vulnerable to break-ins and theft.

Nothing is perfect.

Everything can be improved upon.

But here’s the deal- the thing with AI is that it’s constantly working to improve itself.

That’s why AI is such a powerful and interesting tool.

But here’s the million dollar question.

With constant and never ending learning, training and improvement, how long will it take for AI to be perfect?
