AI has the potential to transform every aspect of how we live, work and do business
It’s 1890. You own a small insurance company that sells accident protection and marine policies. Your business is…www.inc.com
The more I think about it, the more I am convinced that AI will affect the way we “trust”.
Who, what and how we trust are all being transformed as AI becomes more integrated into our everyday lives.
This may sound a little far-fetched, but there are already many examples of how we increasingly place our trust in algorithms, software and computer code.
We buy products, book accommodation, make reservations at restaurants based on reviews and recommendation algorithms. We trust Wikipedia to give us the correct information. When we ask Google a question we expect — and trust — that we receive the correct answer.
We all may have some residual suspicion of big tech companies, but in our everyday lives we tend to put that scepticism to one side and “trust” in the technology.
As such, we already live in a world of so-called “ubiquitous computing”.
Computing is now embedded in all aspects of our everyday lives.
Computer code provides the unseen and unnoticed “architecture” structuring our whole existence. We find a plethora of examples in our work, recreation, communication, consumption, travel, or education. All of these areas of life, as well as the choices associated with these activities, are increasingly organized by and around digital technologies.
