As a tech enthusiast, I am fascinated by artificial intelligence (AI).
The idea of machines that can think and learn like humans is both exciting and terrifying. On the one hand, AI has the potential to revolutionize the way we live and work, making our lives easier and more efficient. On the other hand, I fear that we are rapidly moving toward a future where humans are no longer needed, where we are made redundant by machines that can do our jobs better and faster than we ever could.
Human Versus Technology Evolution:
“I can’t help but feel a sense of unease when I think about the future of AI”
The world in which we live evolves at an alarming pace. From smartphones to self-driving cars, AI is infiltrating every aspect of our lives. It’s like we’re in a race against ourselves, constantly trying to outdo our own inventions. But here’s the thing: Our biology is rooted in our beginnings, and we’re not designed to keep up with this breakneck speed.
It’s a strange dichotomy, this love-hate relationship I have with AI. I am in awe of the incredible things that AI can do. From writing movies to composing music, AI has proven time and again that it has the potential to be a creative force to be reckoned with. The recent movie Sunspring, which was written entirely by an AI, is a perfect example of this. The movie is both hilarious and intense, and knowing that it was written by an AI makes it all the more impressive.
But at the same time, I can’t help but feel a sense of unease when I think about the future of AI. Our environment is changing so rapidly from a technological standpoint, but our biology is not. We were designed to hunt, gather, and survive in a world that was much simpler than the one we’ve created.
Will We Be Homeless?
Put another way, it’s like we are building a house we can’t live in. We keep adding new rooms and features, but we forget about the foundation. We are forgetting about the fact that we are human beings with limitations and vulnerabilities. Somehow we have forgotten the fact that we need to take care of ourselves and each other.
This is not to say that we should stop innovating or that we should be afraid of AI. Rather, it’s a call to action. We need to start thinking more critically about the impact that AI is having on our lives and our society. We need to start asking ourselves some tough questions. What kind of world do we want to live in? What kind of future do we want to create? And most importantly, how can we ensure that AI is used for the benefit of all, rather than just a select few – making a hospitable environment for everyone?
One thing that gives me hope is the fact that we are not alone in this struggle. There are many people out there who are working to ensure that AI is used for good. From researchers to policymakers to activists, there are many voices speaking out about the need for ethical and responsible AI. And while there is still a long way to go, I believe that we can make a difference.

Love-Hate Relationship With AI:
In the end, my love-hate relationship with AI is a reflection of my love-hate relationship with technology in general. I have always been both excited and terrified by the possibilities that technology presents. But I believe that if we approach it with a critical eye and a sense of responsibility, we can create a future that is both innovative and humane.
As Aristotle said, “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” Let’s entertain the thought of AI, but also be mindful of its potential pitfalls. Let’s build a house in which we can live. And let’s work together to create a future that is both bright and sustainable. Just as a house needs a strong foundation to stand, we need to ensure that our society is built on a foundation of ethics, responsibility, and compassion. Only then can we create a world that is truly worth living in.
