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.
- 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.
