Generative AI: The New Threat to Human Intelligence?
Google I/O 2023, held this week, provided a glimpse into the future of artificial intelligence (AI) and how it will permeate our daily lives in ways that were once unimaginable. The advancements showcased at the event were both impressive and thought-provoking, leaving many pondering the potential consequences of this rapid progress.
Among the highlights were Google’s AI tools that promise to automate various tasks, such as writing emails, reading and summarizing messages, creating spreadsheets and presentation notes, and even responding to text messages with specific emotional tones, if instructed to do so. While these capabilities may appear convenient on the surface, they raise concerns about the diminishing role of human interaction and the potential erosion of our own abilities.
