Consumers Feel AI Will Improve Society But Threatens Personal Data: Arm Research

A survey by chip technology vendor Arm also found positive attitudes towards tech: 61% said increased automation will make society better while just 22% said they would make things worse. Loss of personal data was the top concern about AI, cited by 85% compared with 63% worrying about machines being unreliable and a still-considerable 57% fearing they would become more intelligent than humans. Reflecting those worries, 67% said they’d prefer AI devices to store data locally and 57% still felt that way even if cloud storage would improve performance.
