The artificial intelligence (AI) promises to bring great benefits to humanity, but at the same time to be the executioner of many collaborators. On the one hand, it would contribute to GDP growth, since it can increase the efficiency and competitiveness of companies; and would provide benefits to different sectors such as agriculture, education and health, among others.

On the other, it threatens to put at least 300 million jobs at risk, just in its first phase of application, thus increasing economic inequality, indicates a study carried out by Goldman Sachs.

This, and the unrestricted access of some tools such as Chat GPT4, have caused polarity and global debate: while some affirm that it will bring great benefits, others oppose it, due to the risk it poses to the well-being of society.

The Future of Life Institute organization published a letter, signed by more than 1,000 people, including renowned businessmen such as Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak and Jaan Tallinn, where it is requested to stop the advance of AI until protocols and systems are established to guarantee its use. safe development. And that its auditing, supervision and monitoring of those responsible is allowed, in case of damage.

While all of this is true, the truth is that AI is here to stay. Instead of fearing it, we should learn to use it to our advantage. To achieve this, you can:

-Retrain and reposition: train and relocate collaborators whose jobs can be automated, so that they can adopt new functions and roles in the organization.

-Adopt a focus on complementary tasks: task automation can free up resources to increase the focus on tasks that are strategic, creative or that require human skills.

-Privacy and data security: We must ensure that applicable data protection regulations and security measures that protect AI systems from potential threats are followed.

The growing presence of AI demands a deep reflection on the importance of emotional intelligence. To ensure that it is used responsibly, a solid understanding of emotional skills needs to be developed. Only then will we be able to face the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities that AI presents, guaranteeing an equitable, ethical and humane future in the age of technology. @mundiario
