The future of AI [INFOGRAPHIC]

Monday November 5 2018

It’s no secret that AI is going to advance and grow beyond anything we could have imagined just decades ago, but is the future of AI going to be positive or negative?

RS Components has collated the opinions and thoughts, in the form of well known quotes, of some of the biggest names in the science and technology industries to determine whether we should be excited about what the future of AI holds, or if its impact could be more negative than positive.

Key findings:

The opinion of the future of AI has got more positive over time 
Since 2012, the overall opinion of the future of AI has become more positive and more and more big names in science and tech appear to be embracing it rather than fearing it.

Mark Zuckerberg is one of the people most positive about the future of AI, and Stephen Hawking is one of the least 
The founder of Facebook has a much more positive outlook on the future of AI than physicist Stephen Hawking, with Zuckerberg believing that AI will improve humans’ health and safety whilst Hawking believes that AI could, in fact, lead to the end of the human race as we know it.

In 2015, Bill Gates had a negative opinion of the future of AI, but now he’s open to the advantages it could bring to human lives
This suggests that the more we understand about AI, the more elements we’ll recognise that have the potential to improve and enhance aspects of our lives.
