Benefits and Risks of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence is a theme which will be covered in this years conference. Make sure to buy your tickets for Cyber Science 2021, today.


“The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race….It would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever-increasing rate."

- Stephen Hawking, BBC

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has now become a part of our day-to-day lives. The scope for innovation and development in AI is enormous and will continue changing the world in diverse ways in the future.

As with everything else, there are positives and negatives that come with AI. Here are some remarkable benefits and risks of Artificial Intelligence that continue reshaping the world of today.

Leads to higher production rates and increased productivity as well as allowing for more efficient use of raw materials, improved product quality, reduced lead times, and superior safety.

Smart Decision Making

Coordinate data delivery, analyse trends, develop data consistency, provide forecasts, and quantify uncertainties to make the best decisions for the company in an unbiased manner.

Enhanced Customer Experience

Businesses respond to customer queries and grievances quickly and address the situations efficiently through tools such as chatbots.

Data Analysis

Speed up the process and analysis of data gathered and create predictive models and algorithms to process data and understand the potential outcomes of different trends and scenarios.

Managing Repetitive Tasks

No need for manual effort, automate interactions between different business systems and make the tiresome work easy for the business.


Job Loss

Automation would impact low-wage earners. Jobs with repetitive tasks are the most vulnerable, but as machine learning algorithms become more sophisticated, jobs requiring degrees could be more at risk as well. 

Privacy Violation

Privacy has been invaded through the use of facial recognition technology in offices, schools and other venues for surveillance.

Malicious Use of AI

As AI is so powerful and can easily take control of many things, experts have found that malicious use of AI technology could threaten our digital, physical, and political security.

Safety Considerations

If left unchecked and a human error occurs, it’s possible for AI’s imperfections to cause physical harm. Furthermore, technology is prone to failure.

Fairness & Bias Concerns

While there is no human bias, AI system’s decisions are only as good as the data it is trained on. If anything is underrepresented in the data used to train the machine learning model, the output could be unfairly discriminatory.
