Artificial intelligence (AI) is on the rise. Today, more and more people than ever before are using more and more AI products than ever before. To be sure, it isn’t uncommon for many individuals to use AI devices to order items, answer questions, play games, receive the news, and more.
While a substantial portion of critics and individuals believe that AI devices are plainly excellent, the truth is that they are making (and will make) our lives worse in a number of ways.
Let’s take a look at 12 ways artificial intelligence and technology will compromise the quality of users’ lives.
1. Less family/friend time
AI eats up a substantial amount of time. Throw in the fact that users are interacting with a “person,” and it isn’t difficult to see how individuals can have less free time and a weakened desire to enjoy quality moments with friends and family members—moments that make life special.
2. Unnecessary spending
Ordering products and subscribing to services is easy with AI devices—too easy. Users need not leave the bed to place expensive orders for things they don’t need, and the prices of these things won’t be clear, given that there’s no corresponding visual breakdown. This will increase unnecessary spending.
