  • AI in long term may kill human skills of thinking the unthinkable.  All  data shall be processed in a structured manner, where machines shall provide solution based on their learning over a period of time. These machines shall not have capability of thinking out of box.



  • The set of controls in AI will be extremely complex because of the  nature   of processing of information and must be dealt with  based on the  nature  of the AI tool and the purpose, etc.
