Though AI innovations have been hitting the market at an unprecedented rate, it looks like there are going to be some major roadblocks set up for future AI developments.
Among these roadblocks is an increasing pressure put on major AI developers like Google and Microsoft for an extended moratorium on high-tech AI developments.
Though those tech companies may keep working despite the pushback, it is unknown yet if there is a breaking point to AI development.
For instance, if U.S. lawmakers began calling for an AI pause, and even setting up laws to limit AI development, then perhaps that would slow down the tech world.
This leads into another major possible issue is government intervention that will impede AI’s growth, or at least the ability for companies to profit off of their AI efforts. This was most recently seen on Italy’s temporary ban on ChatGPT.
What Businesses Need to Understand About the Future of AI
With all of these issues surrounding AI, you may be wondering if it is worth implementing into your business operations at all.
The good news is that business owners do not need to worry about all of the talk about an AI pause and possible government limits on AI.
That is because the majority of that talk relates to high-level AI applications that aspire to more superintelligent AI, or general AI, which matches or even exceeds human intelligence across a wide variety of areas.
ChatGPT is one of the bridge-building technologies to superintelligent AI because of the scope of work that it can do. From writing poems to doing your chemistry homework, technology like ChatGPT is designed to do a whole lot.
That is why it has become so controversial among industry leaders and lawmakers—because such technology is pushing into the future of AI, which may create dangerous superintelligent AI that can be put to unethical ends, such as spreading malware.
This is what business owners need to understand about their choice of AI: If it is something that seems overly ambitious, such as ChatGPT, then you may make a mistake relying on it.
This is because the ambitious, proto-superintelligent AI is what regulators and the public have their eyes on, and seek to limit or even outright ban.
That is why you should choose narrow AI.
Narrow AI Should be Safe
Narrow AI is specialized to specific tasks that are accomplished within a lot of constraints and restrictions.
Perhaps the most popular form of narrow AI is the automated technologies offered by IBM, through its AI and machine learning platform Watson.
Watson can be used as a chatbot, though one with much more restrictions than ChatGPT. Watson will be trained on your company’s data so that it can offer useful information to customers about your products and services.
Customers can ask Watson about your latest promotion and get an accurate answer. But customers cannot ask Watson to write a poem or write a treatise on contemporary politics. Thus, Watson is much more safe to use, and therefore unlikely to be limited or banned.
If you are interested in using narrow AI, including the host of automated services under Watson, then read on below.
