Artificial Intelligence, between Opportunity and Challenge

Liliana Cismariu, Vasile Gherheș


As part of the 4th Industrial Revolution, the emergence of Artificial Intelligence will change almost all economic activities, and it will create enormous social and economic opportunities. It will also pose major challenges, accompanied by ethical dilemmas.

The present study focuses on the perceptions of current employees predominantly from the IT area, on the development of AI. The aim is to capture the attitudes they have towards the emergence and the development of AI, the impact that it might have on certain sectors of social life and people in general. We sought for the 280 online surveyed subjects to have been employed for at least 6 months, assuming that being already anchored in their professional lives might reduce their biasness. The working methodology allowed us to process and interpret data both quantitatively and qualitatively. The results of the study could be used to predict possible changes that could occur in the future as an effect of the development of Artificial Intelligence, but also to reduce the negative impact that it could have.
