AI may help make the roads safer, reduce waste, improve accessibility, stem the spread of misinformation, and more. On the scary side, though, many fear the technology may be used to create more targeted cyberattacks, aid government surveillance, and power killer drones.

Sure, artificial intelligence might one day leave you unemployed and kill us all. But it also has the potential to do a lot of good in the world.

As AI applications provider Noodle.ai points out in a new infographic, this emerging technology may help make the roads safer, reduce waste, improve accessibility, stem the spread of misinformation, and allow for more individualized treatment of diseases. And while it threatens to steal many jobs, AI may at the same time create millions of them.

"There's a lot of talk about the potential evils of artificial intelligence—but in the right hands, AI can do extraordinary good," the company wrote. "From the first wheel to the emerging internet, most disruptive technologies are vilified at first."

One troubling stat that Noodle.ai notes: Thirty-eight percent of all US jobs could be automated by the mid-2030s. Manufacturing, retail, and construction jobs and workers with "low" and "medium" levels of education may be hardest hit.

The company also says that AI may actually create 2.3 million jobs in 2020. Companies developing AI will, for instance, need programmers to help train their systems, go-betweens to explain this technology to the public, and ethics controllers to ensure the doomsday scenarios Elon Musk and others expound don't come to pass.

On the scary side, many fear AI may be used to create more targeted cyberattacks, aid government surveillance, and power killer drones. Noodle.ai also notes it could widen social divides: "When an algorithm is fed biased data, it only spits out more bias," the company pointed out. But AI can also reduce misinformation online by flagging terrorist propaganda and other extremist content.
