Artificial intelligence, a bridge between generations

We are rapidly becoming involved in an environment where artificial intelligence becomes not an exception in our activities but the rule; the influence of this technology is increasing exponentially due to the competition among market giants for their share of this innovation. But how does this affect the access to technology by individuals not well versed in this medium? It is a very striking question, especially considering the fear and distrust that the term “artificial intelligence” brings. But, guided only by the word, it is easy to imagine that this technology would be quite a niche, in the sense that only people with some education or training can effectively use this kind of tool. Still, this is a widespread misconception, which leads to a clash of realities.

The evolution of artificial intelligence is a very inclusive way to insert individuals who are not versed in technology, in the current scenario, mainly for its simplicity of use in general; even though it is often a tool with highly complex results or extremely effective, its use is as simple as writing a question on Google, taking into account that currently, virtually all artificial intelligence in the market, deals with a high-level language, directly, making its use not much beyond writing a simple sentence. This sentence can be just a question; it can also be a form of order or a request, all with generally very understandable results that vary in complexity according to the “prompt” given to the machine. This fact alone is enough to make artificial intelligence simpler in terms of use than the current tools, but we can go even further. The companies that fight for control of this market seek to create more and more functionalities for their AIs, reaching a point where they begin to interact with other tools, making it possible to ask them to, for example:

  • Organize an e-mail box.
  • Send a message.
  • Summarize a text or even interpret it.
  • Create a PowerPoint presentation.
  • Manage your agenda.
  • Assist in the writing of a text.

These tools are still in progress, but they reduce the need for human interference to a minimum, saving a lot of time and effort and allowing attention to be focused on less operational and repetitive activities. All this is accessible to people with a minimum understanding of technology, where the most significant drawback ends up being the way that the marketing of these tools is done since it ends up focusing on an audience that is already inserted in the medium, ignoring that the assistance brought by this type of tool can allow anyone to interact and enjoy the evolution in technology in recent years, with little or no training, mainly due to the more “human” relationship with the machine, not requiring a deeper explanation of this interaction.

AI can also be seen as a helping hand that makes life easier. Having virtually unlimited “patience,” it can be used without limits, making any function more dynamic, less repetitive, and in general more efficient, all in this friendly interface, capable of delivering information and performing tasks as a tool itself that by many are still seen as a tool from a distant future.

The fundamental concept of this text ends up being “A human relationship with the machine,” this relationship is what allows interaction with the machine, direct, without the need for programming, talking many times as if you were talking to a human being, which has been evolving every day, and can very well, make the life of anyone, regardless of technical skills, significantly more straightforward.
