Artificial Intelligence: Can we really solve problems, and why it will help society, and further aid our evolution as a species.

We have a world where we have many different problems. Global Warming, where our Earth is rapidly warming, we are losing biodiversity, and our planet will soon become an abysmal apocalyptic wasteland. Cancer and antibiotic diseases, which are claiming so many lives, and the death toll is only rising. However, we have a solution staring us straight in the face.

By writing a couple of simple algorithms, along with building a basic neural network that can analyze data and learn better. This is exactly how we can solve many problems. We already know that even the soil, bacteria that kill each other. However analyzing each individual particle that is used against each bacteria that is able to kill them will take a lot of human effort, however, if we can train a simple Neural Network to take previous data, and simulate a lab condition, and look at both molecules in the bacterium and the molecules that the bacterium in the soil, and analyzing the molecules and can see what can break the bonds, or can dissolve the molecules, and prevent the bacteria from growing, we can constantly keep creating new antibiotics, through just taking a sample of the bacteria, creating a neural network, training it to look at both molecules on both sides, and test it, and find new antibiotics, we can do the work of many humans, and save alot of time and effort, while solving a gigantic and very unprecedented problem that society faces, while saving human resources for more important things that we need to do, such as exploring space, and developing stronger AI. We can also help mitigate the risks and unprecedented consequences of Global Warming. We can train AI, for example have it recognize certain variables that we want to find in new Electric Vehicle(EV) designs, and eventually, constantly seeing the most optimal, able to create new electric vehicle designs, and henceforth, solve the tremendous issue of global warming and help bring forth one of the best technologies to solve it and mitigate its consequences, EV’s. By utilizing GAN’s to have two neural networks compete with each other, and find the best design, we can once again save time and human creativity and skill. We can solve our greatest problems, and have a more experienced, more smart system that can do our repetitive tasks.

When we invest in Artificial Intelligence, we invest in a multitasking solution, where if we develop a basic control system, that can be applied in 15 different areas, and then just implement more specific code for each individual problem, we can save human creativity, which is one thing Artificial Intelligence cannot replicate 100%. It may be able to suggest, and improve on already existing designs. It will be like a spellcheck to our innovations. But when we waste human skill on things such as predicting the stock market, and just analyzing it, when we can take that skill and develop an AI system that can predict it far more accurately. Its our experiences and creativity that make us human. It’ s our drive to create something better, and not just repeat the same, boring tasks, that has allowed for us to evolve and survive everything this world has thrown at us. We should utilize artificial intelligence to take care of the boring tasks that we must complete, so that we can maximize our creative potential. Artificial intelligence will not harm, but help society.
