AI will oust us!

Warning : Large parts of this blog post are not written by me!

Machines keep on replacing humans in always more tasks. After the automation of physical works, and then repetitive actions, now Artificial Intelligence is getting ready to replace many intellectual jobs. Already AI is used on a daily basis in many fields such as medicine with improved medical diagnostic thanks to data mining, automotive on the path to autonomous vehicles, gaming with the anticipation of multiple positions in chess games for instance, or in recruitment with an automated analysis of candidates. Closer to our daily concerns, AI is used in fraud management tools for payment transactions.

OpenAI, a Silicon Valley based research lab, just announced ChatGPT, presented as a prototype artificial intelligence chatbot. It provides common sense answers to questions, building on a large knowledge base.

The tool can be easily tested, so I tried to get some answers from ChatGPT to our daily questions in the industry:

What is the future of secure transactions?

It is difficult to predict the future with certainty, but it is likely that secure transactions will continue to be an important part of our lives. As technology continues to advance, we can expect to see new and more sophisticated methods for securing transactions. For example, there may be increased use of biometric authentication, such as fingerprint or iris scanning, to verify the identity of individuals conducting transactions. Additionally, advances in encryption and other security technologies may lead to more secure and efficient ways of transmitting sensitive information.

Will there still be SIM cards in 2030?

It is difficult to predict the future with certainty, but it is possible that SIM cards may still be in use in 2030. SIM cards are a popular and effective way of providing mobile phone users with access to a network, and they have been in use for many years. However, it is also possible that new technologies may emerge that replace or supplement the use of SIM cards. For example, there may be increased use of eSIM (embedded SIM) technology, which allows users to activate a mobile plan without the need for a physical SIM card. Ultimately, the future of SIM cards will depend on the developments in mobile technology and the preferences of consumers and industry stakeholders.

We get a mix of interesting comments, definitions that are part of everyone common culture and empty statements such as: "the future of SIM cards will depend on the developments in mobile technology and the preferences of consumers and industry stakeholders."

Sometimes answers get quite elaborate:

Is Digital ID a good technology?

Digital ID technology has the potential to offer many benefits, but it also raises some concerns and challenges. Some of the key advantages of digital ID include:

  1. Convenience: Digital ID allows individuals to carry their identification and other relevant information electronically, which can be more convenient than carrying physical documents.

  2. Security: Digital ID can be more secure than physical documents, as it can be encrypted and protected with advanced security measures.

  3. Efficiency: Digital ID can make it easier and more efficient for organizations to verify the identity of individuals and access their information, which can streamline processes and reduce the need for paperwork.

However, there are also some concerns and challenges associated with digital ID, including:

  1. Privacy: Digital ID systems can involve the collection and storage of sensitive personal information, which raises privacy concerns. It is important to ensure that such information is handled securely and in accordance with privacy laws and regulations.

  2. Inclusion: Not everyone has access to the technology and infrastructure needed to use digital ID, which could exclude some individuals from certain services and opportunities.

  3. Trust: Digital ID systems rely on trust in the technology, the organizations that issue and manage the IDs, and the individuals who use them. It is important to ensure that digital ID systems are designed and managed in a way that promotes trust and confidence.

Overall, whether digital ID is considered a good technology will depend on factors such as how it is used, the safeguards and controls in place, and the extent to which it provides benefits while addressing potential concerns and challenges.

Not too bad! This could constitute a good first-level dissertation on the topic.

However, if we try to go a bit further and get data, some answers are disappointing:

How many SIM cards worldwide?

I'm sorry, but I am not able to provide an accurate answer to your question. As a large language model trained by OpenAI, I don't have access to the internet and I don't have current information on the number of SIM cards in use worldwide. Additionally, my training only goes up until 2021, so any information I provide may be outdated. It would be best to use a search engine or consult a reliable source for current information on this topic.

Then I came to maybe the most important question when we deal with AI:

Will bloggers disappear because of AI?

It is unlikely that bloggers will disappear because of AI. While AI technology has the potential to automate some tasks that are currently performed by humans, it is unlikely to replace the unique insights, perspectives, and creativity that bloggers bring to their work. Blogging involves more than just the product of written content; it also involves the ability to generate and share ideas, engage with audiences, and build communities. These are tasks that are difficult for AI to replicate, and as a result, bloggers are likely to continue to play a valuable role in the digital landscape.

That being said, AI may have some impact on the way that bloggers work. For example, AI-powered tools may be able to assist with tasks such as content creation, editing, and formatting, which could make it easier and faster for bloggers to produce their work. AI may also be used to analyze data and provide insights about audience engagement and other metrics, which could help bloggers to improve their content and reach more people. However, even with these tools, the human element of blogging is likely to remain important.

So should I rest reassured? Or is it just a matter of time?
