What are the Limitations of Artificial Intelligence?


With the application of artificial intelligence, marketing initiatives have taken to the next level with more individualized, foresighted, automated marketing strategies. However, some genuine restrictions limit the functioning of the technology as it is with any other technology. Here in this post let us discover the limitations of artificial intelligence that impede AI. 

Overview of the Limitations of Artificial Intelligence

Not A Suitable Solution for All Circumstances

Limitations of Artificial Intelligence

In the current stage of Artificial intelligence, one can only employ it for individual solutions to carry out certain AI-powered marketing tasks.  There are numerous intelligent marketing solutions available, ranging from using AI to optimize and personalize your content to an AI tool that helps optimize paid advertising. However, as there is no universally applicable answer, using a variety of different tools to complete a variety of artificially intelligent activities can be costly, time-consuming, and messy.


Requires Monitoring

Algorithms operate similarly to an engine, but someone still needs to turn the key. The marketer is still crucial to the planning, creation, and execution of the marketing effort. They are the supplier of fresh data to the artificial intelligence required for learning in the first place. One of the main challenges in developing a more human-like AI as per researchers is that this type of supervised learning does not replicate how humans learn organically. 


Limited to Pre-fed task 

AI is limited to the tasks that it has been given. Although it typically achieves this quite effectively, unlike a real person, it cannot make split-second decisions. For instance, a competent marketer will alter or halt any planned messaging when a catastrophic occurrence takes place. This is so that we, as human beings, may be empathetic and compassionate toward the victims and their families. However, since a computer cannot express emotion, if it is not carefully regulated, it might land a corporation in trouble during a crisis.


Maintenance and Cost

Like any new technology, there may be a hefty up-front cost as well as ongoing maintenance and repair requirements. Regular upgrades are also necessary for your AI software in order to keep up with the dynamic business environment. Before implementing any AI technology, your business must carefully analyze the return on investment.


Lacks Creativity

Let us analyze this in the domain of marketing. Successful marketing greatly relies on creativity and novel ideas enabling marketers to stay ahead of the competition. Unlike humans, however, machines and artificial intelligence is impeded by the lack of creativity. 

Humans relatively are equipped with the capacity to think and feel, which eventually guides their decision-making concerning creativity. Although AI helps in determining image types that have a higher probability that a consumer might click on, for instance, it lacks originality and creativity. Hence a machine is disabled to compete with human brains when it comes to creativity. 


Absence of Privacy, Safety, and Ethics

There is no agreement on privacy, ethic, or safety. AI use cases and their boundaries still need more consideration and determination. Given the limitations at hand, AI safety is essential, and quick action is needed. Most AI critics also express ethical reservations about its application, not only in terms of how it destroys the concept of privacy but also from a philosophical perspective.

We think that human intelligence is unique and inborn. It may seem counterintuitive to give away that exclusivity.

If robots can carry out all tasks that people can, effectively making them equal to humans, should they be given human rights is one of the commonly discussed questions? If so, how would you describe these robots' rights? We currently lack definitive responses to such cases. The study of AI philosophy is still in its infancy given the recent emergence of AI. 


Adversarial  Attacks

Artificial Intelligence unlike humans does not have the capacity to adapt to changes in several circumstances.  An autonomous vehicle, for instance, might swerve into the wrong lane and crash if the tape is simply applied to the incorrect side of the road. This will result in a person failing to notice the tape or to even respond to it. Although driverless vehicles are considerably safer in some circumstances, it fails to give assurance in circumstances such as this which is a matter of concern.  This insufficiency results in drawing attention to security limitations that are yet to be addressed. While "tricking" these data models occasionally can be entertaining and safe (like mistaking a toaster for a banana), in severe circumstances (like defense objectives), it could endanger lives.


Those are some of the major limitations of artificial intelligence, however, with technological innovations, the field will work its way to improvement while equally revolutionizing numerous industries.
