SkyNet may not be on its way, but lots of helper bots are
Ai has exploded in recent months. Since then copywriters have been worried their jobs and teachers concerned about cheating, but this revolution is about far more than words, even machine-learned ones. Think of these new AIs as engines or operating systems, whereas in the old days, we had to know coding skills to get a computer to learn how to execute a task for us, but now “scripts” can be overlayed onto these engines to create “apps” or “ai tools”.
It’s not a case of having HAL as a single tool delivering everything you desire, like the sci-fi movies (2001 Space Oddity reference). Think more “helper bots” (this is an emerging trend in both automation and automatous robots, so you will hear it more). A helper bot, be it on your computer or a physical one, can help with simple tasks; you can subscribe to your engine and build your custom all-powerful one, but as with the internet in general, if we get help with the small tasks, our creativity and output goes up.
Oh no!! I used the word creativity in the context of Ai; everyone man the lifeboats, and we are all losing our jobs. Actually, no, “you will not be replaced by Ai, but you will be replaced by someone who knows how to use Ai” This list covers hundreds of simple tasks that take the heavy lifting out, so you can be creative, and innovative easier. Spray cans did not replace the brush, it just allowed a different type of painting, now called graffiti.
Ai is the biggest change to work and how we live since the industrial revolution, think of the impact of the web on business, this will be bigger. We predicted lots of bad things with Web 1 and Web 2 like books dying out, but they flourished, on the downside the high street as we knew it died only because retail did not adapt and still has not grasped the opportunity, but that is another blog.
So here is a selection of helper bots; it’s not exhaustive, its not the best of the best; it’s a list of tools for you to try out, learn and experiment.
