When we hear about driverless cars and algorithms that help narrow down job candidates, most of the time what we are hearing is the negative side of artificial intelligence and the AI economy. Facial recognition software and driverless cars, both of which rely on artificial intelligence programming, have shown racial bias among other problems.
Hiring algorithms have shown bias against female candidates. These are problems with the programming that can be overcome if developers would take such things into account. But what we don’t often hear about when talking about artificial intelligence is all the good it is doing in the world as well as all the potential good it can do within the next decade. By 2030, AI is projected to add $13 trillion to the global economy, but only if adoption rates increase.
