AI, artificial intelligence, future technology
AI is going to be prevalent in our future, but is everyone willing to accept it?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is, according to many, the inevitable future we all face. From automated self-driving cars to computers capable of knocking out hit songs in seconds, AI looks set to change the world. Naturally, people have their reservations when it comes to computers seemingly taking over the world. The thought of a car making its own decisions or a computer being able to do your job isn’t one many people relish.

In fact, according to a survey by Storyblok, the majority of consumers aren’t interested in listening to AI. As per the survey, 85% of the 1,000 consumers surveyed didn’t want AI to help them decide what to buy. Additionally, if they knew AI had recommended something, 60% said they wouldn’t buy it. These stats suggest the average person isn’t enamored by the prospect of AI. This, of course, could be down to the fact people are often resistant to change. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. People like traditional things.

We Hold the Classics Close to Our Hearts

Electric cars are, in many ways, better than their combustion engine counterparts. Not only are they more environmentally friendly, but they’re also fast, offer a smoother ride, and have better technology. However, the market leader in electric cars, Tesla, sells just over 1.3 million vehicles per year. In contrast, Ford sells almost 4 million. Away from the automotive industry, the love for classics is prominent in casino gaming.

Online casinos have hundreds of new and innovative games, including progressive jackpot slots and live game shows. However, when it comes to enduring popularity, the classic card game blackjack stands firm. Why? Because it’s based on a simple premise that works. It’s easy to understand as a game, and there’s an element of uncertainty players love. This has led game developers to create a variety of blackjack games with subtle rule variations, such as Mega Fire Blaze and All Bets Blackjack.

People Always Say No to New Ideas

These simple examples show that, on one level, people love the classics. People gravitate to things they know and, initially, shy away from things they don’t. However, as history has shown, people come around in the end. People initially thought the internet would be a fad. Go back to the 1990s and people were saying it would be useless. Today, the world revolves around the internet. The same is likely to be true for AI.

ChatGPT and other products are already hugely advanced. Nonetheless, these programs are going to continue to evolve and could go on to completely redefine journalism, entertainment, driving, commerce, and much more. Therefore, it almost doesn’t matter if people like it or not.

While the Storyblok survey shows that people wouldn’t take notice of AI suggestions, the reality is that they probably do already. AI technology is already used in our phones through Siri and Alexa. Security systems already use AI, companies use AI chatbots to support customers, and it’s used in modern cars.

So, while there will always be a place for the classics in the world and our hearts, life moves on. New ideas come to the forefront, and, if they’re better than what already exists, they take over. That’s why we’re heading toward an AI-based future, whether people like it or not.
