Demystifying Artificial Intelligence: Answering AI FAQs

Join Paul Mochkovitch, head of pedagogical content at Le Wagon, in a comprehensive interview where he addresses frequently asked questions about AI. Explore the transformative world of artificial intelligence guided by an expert, as he delves into its impact, limitations, and the importance of responsible use.
Summary

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is more than just a buzzword in today’s rapidly evolving technological landscape; it’s a fundamental key to understanding the world around us. In this interview, we sit down with Paul Mochkovitch, the leading force behind pedagogical content development at Le Wagon, to discuss the top FAQs about AI. Together, we’ll explore these questions, address concerns, and delve into the profound impact of AI on various aspects of our lives.

 

What is AI?

As Luc Julia, the creator of Siri, once said, artificial intelligence is like a “hammer.” In essence, AI comprises a set of tools designed to replicate human decision-making and behaviours. These tools have profound implications for accessibility. For example, with AI, it’s now easier than ever to translate, add subtitles, and bring people together, transcending linguistic divides. Moreover, AI empowers us to interact with vast amounts of written information on the internet, transforming pages of complex data into user-friendly interactions. The possibilities are genuinely exciting.

 

What’s the impact of AI on the job market?

When it comes to the job market, there’s a common misconception that AI will lead to job loss. However, history has shown that breakthrough technologies consistently create more job opportunities than they eliminate, and AI is no exception. According to the World Economic Forum, the adoption of AI is projected to generate over 97 million new jobs. Furthermore, AI, particularly generative AI, has the power to transform existing job roles. This means that automation can handle routine tasks, allowing human professionals to focus on tasks that truly matter. AI doesn’t just change the job market; it enhances it.

 

What are the limits of AI?

Indeed, AI is not infallible. One critical concern is the presence of biases within artificial intelligence systems. These biases are inherent in the data they are trained on. If AI algorithms are fed data with biases, they will replicate those biases, potentially leading to incorrect decisions. It’s vital to recognize that AI lacks consciousness and human judgment; it operates based on data. The key to responsible AI use is to carefully curate and monitor the data it is fed. AI, when used judiciously, can bring immense benefits to society, but it must be controlled and understood by all.

What’s your favourite AI tool?

At Le Wagon, we find tremendous value in the OpenAI API. While it may lack a user-friendly interface, it offers the ability to create scripts that harness the power of artificial intelligence. We use OpenAI to streamline feedback analysis. Previously, this was a time-consuming manual task, but with AI, we can preprocess feedback from students and teachers, generating lists of actionable insights. This not only saves time but also empowers our team to focus on enhancing our programs and addressing areas of improvement.

 

Conclusion

In the age of artificial intelligence, it’s essential to understand its role, its potential, and its limitations. AI is a transformative force that is breaking down language barriers, creating jobs, and streamlining everyday tasks. However, it’s crucial to remember that AI is a tool, and it relies on the data it’s fed. As technology enthusiasts, prospective students, and tech professionals, we must harness AI responsibly to maximize its benefits. By doing so, we can make AI a powerful ally in our pursuit of progress and innovation.
