How artificial intelligence is changing our society | DW Documentary 4.5

Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing our lives. It touches on all aspects of society - private life, business, security -- including in the spread of fake news and the challenges posed by the advent of autonomous weapons.

This documentary looks at the rapid change digitalization is causing as it unfolds. In particular, breakthroughs in artificial intelligence are opening completely new horizons. In their film about AI, Tilman Wolff and Ranga Yogeshwar examine the role AI plays in the spread of fake news. They also consider a future with robots and the risks and ethical questions posed by the development of autonomous weapons. To address these issues, they travel the globe to speak with leading experts. AI can generate perfectly forged sound and videos, making it effective for purveying fake news. Discerning the truth from fiction will become increasingly difficult. Technology will streamline work, making some jobs surplus to requirements. Software will pilot self-driving cars and aerial drones. AI is rapidly opening up new vistas, but turning blind corners at speed can be risky. How sensible is this type of progress, and at which point should society step in and set limits to its development?

Okay I'm one minute in and the narrator has already posed the question: *"What will remain science fiction?"*

If the conclusion isn't that *_nothing_* will remain science fiction...
Then I'm gonna have to hit the dislike button.

When he said "A person can think and send descending commands through the limbs and then they measure those commands and they control synthetic motors on the bionic limb"
That blew my mind! 🔥👏🏾

To survive and thrive I need my bed, real food, my bike, some fresh air. So what's with developing all this AI for everything? What do we really need?
