3 Main Reasons Why AI Technology Shouldn't Be a Religion

Just ask the Pope about it. And the President of Microsoft.

After all, those two moguls on opposite ends of the spectrum did speak about the relevancy of AI technology at length, which should tell you something: artificial intelligence is an important subject. Think about it. You have the leader of Catholicism himself sitting down with Microsoft President Brad Smith to talk about learning robots and the prospect of machines essentially "taking over the world." Well, not really! But pretty close.

The Fact Is Many Are Concerned That AI Technology Might Go Too Far in a Lot of Ways

It's actually been discussed before, so this most recent meeting between Pope Francis and the head of the global tech giant of the decade isn't anything new. However, salient points brought up and all, it gives rise to what we should think about regarding artificial intelligence that potentially no one has ever thought about:

For Starters, the Concept That AI Technology Seems to Cater to the Upper Class

That applies to big business and corporate America as well. Innovative tech seems to always fall a lot easier into the hands of those with the moolah to spend, leaving behind the less fortunate. And that's one thing for sure, about religion: we're always talking about the less fortunate. It's a point religion brings up that shows technology shouldn't ever be deified.

Lest We Increase the Digital Divide More Between the Rich and Poor

The Pope, of course, spoke of how important it is to bridge that gap. The poorer nations don't seem to have access to those technologies. There's positive outlook, though, that both the President and the Pope did discuss "artificial intelligence at the service of the common good and activities aimed at bridging the digital divide that still persists at the global level."

In essence, AI technology deserves to be accessible for everyone

Except Those Who Would Leverage the Technology for the Wrong Reasons

Namely criminals. Hackers. Cyber-terrorists. You'd bet both were on board with the fact that "strong ethical and new, evolved laws" were very necessary in ensuring artificial intelligence not only remains accessible, but protected.

At the Heart of It All, Artificial Intelligence Shouldn't Be Worshiped Especially for That Reason


In fact, the Vatican plans on sponsoring a prize with Microsoft in favor of the best doctoral dissertation of the year with probably the most talked-about theme today: artificial intelligence at the service of human life. The keyword: service.

For all those who are newer to the concept of 3D technology; it is a growing technology in which different physical objects are being created by depositing the different materials in layers on the digital model. 3D technology also has been known as additive manufacturing and hence made it very easy to understand the various aspects of the production process without spending too much money as done previously on the physical models. The characters and usage of 3D printing in India are growing day by day at a breakneck pace due to the involvement of various unmatched features. As per a survey conducted almost 70% of the organization have been adopted the concept of 3D printing today.

Working of 3D printing: 3D printing services in India is a growing industry that was being introduced into the market a few years back. It has simplified the complexity of various production processes by creating 3D models into computers. It needs the involvement of 3D modeling software that works according to the data generated by the 3D scanner.

Applications of 3D printing

The field and usage of 3D technology are growing at a breakneck pace with the increasing awareness and production. Some of the most common forms of 3D printing are:

• Education: It is one of the most common fields where can view the use of 3D printing in our daily life. The 3D printers have now become one of the most critical parts of almost every classroom as it has made it easy for the educators and students as well in understanding the various concepts. The technology has helped the students and the educators both in materializing their ideas at a breakneck pace and that too without spending any extra charges for that. Whether it is a primary school, a high school or a university; 3D printers can be easily seen connecting students with the latest technology.

• Rapid prototyping: 3D printing has now become one of the most important parts of almost every designing process. The term rapid prototyping is used here; as the process is quite fast and cheap at the same time. 3D technology has made it immensely easier to create the product image and to add changes in it without wasting too much time and money on it.

• Fast manufacturing: It is another one of the most common aspects of the 3D printing process that has now being used by a large number of companies to perform small batch custom manufacturing as well. In short, you currently don’t need to wait for a more extended period to get customized manufacturing; add changes as per your expectations and get the desired results within the prescribed period.

• Automotive, Aviation and Aerospace: The field of 3D technology has now remained not only limited to some areas only but also in high demand as well in automotive, aviation and aerospace field as well in order raise the productivity by reducing the complexity of models of products.
