Artificial Intelligence in Daily Life

Started June 13, 2023

Abstract or project description

Mahathi is writing a literature review about artificial intelligence. She is taking a big-picture view of how recent developments in AI are impacting major areas of daily life (e.g. work, education, healthcare, entertainment, etc.). Additionally, she is looking into challenges and concerns regarding ethics and safety.

The past year has seen many breakthroughs in the field of artificial intelligence. Although artificial intelligence has been around for decades, only recent developments have had transformative impacts on daily life. AI’s ability to personalize and adapt to circumstances challenges traditional, manual approaches. From AI-powered personalized curricula in school to segmentation models applied to radiology to autonomous vehicles, AI has penetrated every sector of society. Despite the benefits of these new technologies, AI comes with many risks such as over-reliance, algorithmic biases, and major job loss. Furthermore, there is no legislation in place to regulate AI. Modern AI tools are accessible, highly efficacious, and broadly applicable. AI has ingrained itself into society and the impact it will have is largely dependent on how it is regulated.
