AI has made its impact known to almost every industry known to man; such as: Healthcare, Law Enforcement, Aerospace, Manufacturing and even in simple tasks in our day to day lives.
Some of the most common forms of AI that we are used to range from Siri to google assistant, self-driving cars and online shopping sites. It’s Artificial Intelligence that makes businesses intelligent and smarter. Siri is a form of a virtual personal assistant which is speech to text based and interprets the questions asked by the user, inputs that into a search engine and spews out the information in a human voice.
Very soon, AI will become a little less artificial, and a lot more intelligent.

intelligent research is now progressing rapidly, recent landmarks such as self-driving cars or computers performing lifesaving surgeries, science is ambiguous of what is to come. In the levels of investments is pouring into this technology the impingements we have seen so far will shortly pay off in what the coming decade will bring.
The potential benefits creating artificial intelligences are huge we cannot predict what we might achieve when our own minds are amplified by artificial intelligence. Perhaps with the tool of this new technological revolution we can undo some of the damages done on our natural world. Surely with the guided help of AI we will finally be able to eradicate

. With the use of AI in robots, cars can be successfully assembled and cop with heavy objects such as car engines and frames without the need of human assistance. AI in robotics can do many tasks as we know and every day, we are learning more about it from self-driving cars, stock trading, to taking over some dangerous jobs, but people are beginning to worry that too much AI might lead us to jobless futures? The idea of robots is not to take over our jobs, it is there to make it easier and risk free. It is very simple model if AI in robots that it is able to replace humans in dangerous jobs. For example, sorting trash is a very dangerous job due to toxics that can come from it, but the idea of

factors depend on the type of injury and its cause.
· The elderly and working in a high-risk job, such a building, or roofing, results in an increase of falls (injury).
· Some falls can be prevented by using harnesses and other WH&S (work health and safety regulations)
· Risk factors from transport injuries include: speeding, drink driving, and fatigue.
· Protective factors include: wearing a seatbelt, abiding the speed limit, wearing a helmet, and ensuring long road trips are broken up into manageable portions so fatigue does not become a dangerous factor.
· Risk factors for self-harm include: mental health issues, depression, drug used, unemployment

information on the developer’s website, the unit once installed on an engine, allows only a certain amount of hydrogen to be combusted, which generates a coherent combustion phase. This combination of air-fuel-hydrogen would then not only burn faster, but also more thoroughly without the release of any hazardous by-products. Next, another solution will be to introduce autonomous vehicles, i.e self driving cars. According to the auto industry and environmental advocates in the UK, the use of this smart technology helps in tackling the amount of carbon monoxide that is released into the air (Croy, 2015). For example, smart-cars come fitted with a high-end modern technology that lets the driver

article, “10 Powerful Examples Of AI In Use Today,” Adams shows examples of AI that already
do everyday tasks for people. A Tesla is a vehicle that has self driving features so people no
longer have to rely on themselves for driving . People can now feel free to relax and let the car
do the work. Although self driving cars are not yet in wide use, it is an example of the route
society is taking. People would rather have a machine do something for them then do it
themselves. The article, “Are We Too Dependant On Technology,” by Jon Capistrano also gives

processing information and dealing with technology. Most manually done jobs like janitors, truck drivers, etc. There are things that exist now that can help these jobs such as the Roomba vacuum and self-driving cars. Technology is advancing, with these advancements come new opportunities for creators to build new things that could possibly take over their jobs before they even realize it. Even though new technology is being created, technology cannot necessarily take over everything. Krugman points out the fact that “white collar” workers will soon be left jobless because of automation.
Krugman is predicting that society needs to be rebuilt and the only way to do that is by looking at other

. For example, Alexa and Siri have made it easy to find restaurants, set alarms and stream music. AI has made a positive impact on how we live our lives by completing simple tasks allowing for more time to be spent on complex tasks or spent with family and friends. Another positive impact of artificial intelligence is the ability for people to be more purposeful within the workforce. Data from several sources indicates millions would lose jobs without AI. This is because simple repetitive jobs can be automated easily for example in america there are millions of truck drivers with the comings of self driving cars millions will lose jobs however this will lower risks of accidents and if

No woman character in the novel understands or cares about either Nick’s moral preoccupations and his desire to understand experience or Gatsby’s intense devotion to a dream which transcends his circumscribed self. Admittedly, this is a satirical novel and none of the other male characters pretends an interest in an inner life either, and of course Nick and Gatsby dominate this concern of narrative.

the emissions of gas from transport into the atmosphere. They try to create ‘Walkable Cities’ and cyber security can take part in that. Information technology plays a big role in obtaining the solution to that crisis. For instance, the industry has manufactured self-driving cars that save energy, buses, and metros which make public transport cheaper and reduce the number of personal cars on the road which means reduced gas emissions. However, these amenities can be hacked.

stories construct significant internal conflicts in their protagonists, making them relevant to readers. Albeit the situations presented may be outlandish, but the pursuit of companionship, identity, and a purpose are universal. Person versus self conflict is also known as internal conflict, and is something that everyone is familiar with. Internal conflict ensues in each of the three short stories, but present themselves in different ways. In the short story “The Pedestrian”, the protagonist, Leonard Mead is at conflict with himself. While everyone around him is watching T.V., or driving in their cars, he is strolling the different pathways in search of fresh air and company. Leonard
