The UK public is wary of the impact artificial intelligence (AI) could have on jobs and their personal data but still feel it will be a force for good, new research commissioned by AI think tank and development company Fountech.ai, has found.
Two-thirds (67%) of people are worried artificial intelligence will result in jobs being lost to machines and 59% have become more nervous about the way their personal data is collected and used since the rise of AI. However, three-fifths believe AI will do more good to the world around us than it will harm.
One in three respondents said they do not think AI will ever be able to truly replicate the cognitive ability of humans. Nevertheless, three quarters want to see the UK government do more to govern the way AI technologies are developed and used.
