Our Say

Although frightening for many to imagine, Elon Musk’s prediction could serve as a wake-up call to re-evaluate how we’ve been approaching AI and automation. Rather than worry about the unknown, we should be as open to the possibilities of AI and start shaping a future where humans and machines can live in balance. “We must utilize AI for good and ensure it serves the whole society,”” he said. We are embarking on this AI revolution, but we can still shape the course of history to ensure that the future is not just advanced technologically but a future that is more fair, sustainable, and truly advanced.
