Title: IEEE SMC and Advent of Artificial Intelligence: Benefits and Dangers
ABSTRACT: Artificial Intelligence (AI) has, for the past 10 years, been a breakthrough in intelligent applications to numerous areas of human life. While AI has potential benefits in healthcare, education, Workplace, Technology, Engineering (including systems engineering), Cybersecurity. Art, marketing, human, cybernetics, etc. It has many dangers to reckon with. Dangers are Automation-spurred job loss, Deepfakes, Privacy violations, mis-information, Algorithmic bias caused by bad data. Socioeconomic inequality, Market volatility, Weapons automatization, Uncontrollable self-aware AI, just to name a few. In this sessions, new or enhanced proposals will be made to IEEE SMC Society to stay ahead of the curve in AI – now and in the future.
