Artificial Intelligence Statistics

Nicholas C. Rossis

I recently explored the question of whether computer-generated writing could ever replace the human kind. I recently came across some interesting statistics on Artificial Intelligence (AI), courtesy of Kommando Tech.

Current AI technology can be roughly divided into “weak” and “strong” AI. A perfect example of weak AI can be found in your living room in the form of smart speakers. Siri, Echo, and Alexa all have programmed responses to certain demands.

Strong AI, on the other hand, is the most important and interesting artificial intelligence technology today. Strong AI is the kind of AI featured in sci-fi movies. It mimics the human cognitive process. While strong AI has a long way to go before we see widespread use, there’s no doubt that it will profoundly change our lives once it passes the prototype stage.

  1. Many thanks, Kim! It’s something that’s already happening around us. It was interesting to see a Presidential hopeful, Yang, build a political platform out of it. I expect more politicians will have to grapple with the problem in the next years.

  2. As a copywriter, it pains me to say this, but I believe AI will eventually replace at least 90% of paid human writers. I’ve been working with NLP and chatbot devs for many years, and the writing is on the wall… most clients will gladly pay for who/whatever provides the fastest, cheapest, most consistent solution to their problems. Sadly, robotext/voice provides that solution. The only thing we can do as human writers, to best protect our relevance and remain somewhat competitive, is to be so good at demonstrating “authentically human” characteristics in our work, that certain people will always find a profitable purpose for it.

    The good news: I don’t think we’ll reach the tipping point until AI devs figure out how to replace keyword-based search, with true meaning-based inference. That still hasn’t happened yet.

    More good news: I’m still writing for my clients, but I’m also investigating new opportunities in other fields. After all, we humans posses the unique ability to hope for the best, while preparing for the worst. For now, let’s enjoy the good times and write on!
