Many AI-related misconceptions are making the rounds in the age of “fake news.” The most common ones are:
- AI will replace humans
- AI systems aren’t safe
- AI will lead to significant unemployment
While these types of stories are common, they’re far from the truth. Even though some AI-based technology is able to complete some tasks—for example, analyzing zettabytes of data in less than a second—it still needs humans to gather the data and define the patterns for identification.
So we aren’t near a reality where technology has the potential to replace us or our jobs.
