How AI technology is capable of changing the world for good


In 2020 Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already being widely used in a wide number of industry sectors and consumer-facing businesses — we might just not realise it yet or the extent to which our day-to-day lives already benefit.


Welcome to the new disruptive “Information Learning Age”.


How AI technology is capable of changing the world for good


I recently wrote this blog as a LinkedIn article that got lots of people talking and I thought it would be good to share it here for my website visitors…

Businesses, in the B2C and B2B sectors, have already taken the opportunity to make substantial leaps in influencing our lives with disruptive technology. Think Tesla and SpaceX that have transformed established industries and institutions from Elon Musk’s vision for the future of travel. Uber — the taxi business with no taxis, Airbnb — the property letting business with no property. Apple’s product innovation that demands we pay a premium for their well-designed products and software. Facebook, Google and Twitter that have turned their platform users into the product for advertisers to target… The list continues to grow. They have all become successful through breaking the norms, but also normalising change.

But something else is happening too… There are some new AI kids on the block that have been quietly nurtured in the background for a number of years by futurists, entrepreneurs and scientists that will very quickly start to impact to our lives in a very big way. Those kids have become adolescents and are about to start making a big noise.

Let’s take a look at some AI theories and commentary from one such autonomous system, OpenAI, a technology with the stated goal of “promoting and developing friendly AI in a way that benefits humanity as a whole”.


“OpenAI is a non-profit artificial intelligence research company. Our goal is to advance digital intelligence in the way that is most likely to benefit humanity as a whole, unconstrained by a need to generate financial return. Artificial Intelligence is changing the world.

From designing cars to writing books, from running offices to rendering graphics, AI is set to revolutionize the way we live and work.”


The exponential growth in computing power is unleashing a tsunami of data. Giving computers the ability to learn by themselves is allowing them to work at rates we never imagined possible, solving some of the most challenging problems in science and medicine. The focus on deep learning systems is designed to provide solutions in key industries such as computing, healthcare, and finance.


“People need to understand that AI will save more lives than it destroys, but it will also displace some jobs and create new ones,”


Artificial Intelligence is bringing significant change to society, industry and culture. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. From marketing algorithms detecting personas based on your actions, to automated software coding itself, experiences are being tailored to your every desire.

Digital technology is disrupting the way that people consume content, with applications in content recommendations, optimisation, and personalisation delivered through content recommendation engines.


“Just like the way a child builds a house of cards, a neural network learns by adding more layers to its model. Each time it adds a layer, its knowledge increases. As more data is fed to the model, the neural network eventually “learns” how to organize and interpret that data on its own.”


Whether it’s a fact-checking robot or a shopping bot, smart machines are changing the world we live in. The rise of machine learning and AI has created massive opportunities to improve our everyday lives and solve problems that couldn’t be dreamed of before now. It’s also the technology driving recommendations on Netflix and suggestions in Google searches. AI technologies are quickly becoming an integral part of our lives.

As AI becomes more pervasive and capable, it will inevitably be deployed to aid in the automation of any repetitive task.

Challenges such as pollution, climate change and global poverty are difficult for humans to solve alone. Advances in AI have already created safer cars, prevented medical errors and made farming more sustainable.

Every day, new technologies arrive to help us live better. To understand the scope of this change, its scale and importance-one must think historically. Technology has been rapidly advancing for centuries now, slowly changing how we experience life.


“From making stars visible to creating telephones to flying humans into space, technology gives us many discoveries that have a lasting effect on our lives.”


Well, it’s nice to know that OpenAI truly believes in itself, And we should too. With the right ethical drive to develop advances in this technology, we could all benefit in many ways.

Now imagine all of these improvements happening at once, in a short time period-part of an unprecedented boom in innovation.

We are living in an age like no other where pandemics, terrorism, population displacement, hunger and wars sit shoulder-to-shoulder with a drive for better education and health, diversity, equality, protection of the environment and cultural change for good.

Just imagine for a moment that the speed at which we will see technological change driven by AI will be many times faster than our adopted use of computers and smartphones. You will begin to see it’s effects subtly and then realise that it’s here to stay — no matter what.

Personally, I will strive to seek out ways that I can use new AI and machine learning technology for the good of us all.


These are exciting times… Are you with me?



I am a big advocate of “disruption for good” and the rise of the machine learning technology with it’s adopted development use and deployment across digital touchpoints in our lives is something I find fascinating.

In a series of short articles, with the accelerated content creation support of AI tech, I am investigating how this new technology is shaping the world we live in.

My passion is to create software using AI that improves the health and well-being of people in their everyday lives. I see a future where, if technology is used for good and not just for profit, we will see a step-change in individuals’ improved access to education, healthcare services, a better quality of life for the under-privileged and a general cost reduction in the delivery of health care services through improved administration efficiencies that will benefit us all.

Let’s connect and continue the conversation…
