Dr. Sunit Kaur discussed the challenges involved in the use of artificial intelligence

After discussing the benefits of AI, Dr. Sunit Kaur, Head, Department of English discussed the challenges involved in the use of artificial intelligence. She avered that despite the limitless benefits of AI, it had to be used very diligently failing which, it could pose huge threats to its users, as it lacked adaptability , emotions sentiments and a capacity to learn from mistakes as in the case of human intelligence.

AI tools involve a lot of expenses and pose a huge threat to creativity and originality particularly amongst students whose creative and writing skills are taking a back seat thanks to artificial intelligence. AI also has privacy and legal issues which are yet to be regulated and regularised. Dr Sunit concluded that an intelligent and dextrous use of artificial intelligence alone can help us to make full use of its vast and amazing benefits.
