Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], June 15: Artificial Intelligence (AI) leverages computers and machines to mimic the problem-solving and decision-making capabilities of the human mind. AI is maturing – with the transformation of the business environment surpassingly.
Author Niraja’s bestselling book “The world as a Neural Network: The story of AI and our future” a science – fiction, revolves around the entire subject of AI and its socio-economic status. The book presents the readers with a comprehensive perspective on how AI is not only shaping our society today but, in turn, is being continuously reshaped by social and economic pressures. AI can transform society as a whole, but only if it is ensured that it is not at odds with the general well-being of the people. Through this book, the reader will be able to find a guide to action and engagement in the rapidly changing world of the Information Age and find the impact of AI on their own lives reflected within the context.
Excerpt from the book – We are undeniably living in what has been called the ‘Information Age.’ The term encapsulates the growing necessity and ubiquity of information in our time, along with its total dominance of economic, social, and political processes as we know it. Artificial Intelligence has emerged as a revolutionary aspect of technological innovation in the first half of the 21st century. It is likely only to assume greater significance as these innovations become increasingly central to many of our societal functions as a whole. Yet, in terms of policy-making and public discourse, very little attention is paid in this regard. This needs to change.
Most debates held on the future of AI are usually made on a technocratic basis and have very little to offer in terms of an accurate understanding of the multifaceted challenges that face us in our own time. While we think about the future of AI, we either imagine pictures of an unhindered utopia or an authoritarian dystopia. Both attitudes are rooted in what can be considered an ‘undialectical’ imagination of the future where there is either a complete lack of understanding of the powers and limitations of technology and the overall contours of our social organization. This results from a lack of engagement between disciplines at the academic level and the segregation of knowledge into neat boxes and pigeonholes. There will, of course, be a transformation of the fundamental manner in which knowledge and information are organized in our world, and the resultant ripple effects will be felt all over. The only way we can understand the extent of these changes is by actually engaging with how AI is impacting our contemporary society.
