Xtra Perspective: How Artificial Intelligence is changing the Borderland

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- Artificial Intelligence combines the latest powerful software with top-of-the-range hardware to, not just replicate programs fed to the computer, but actually think for itself and make decisions, sometimes faster than the human mind.

A.I. is being used to power research in a huge range of fields, from medical research to the creative arts.

You don’t have to go far to see A.I. in use. Just take a trip to the ABC-7 arts department, and you'll see what we mean.

Among all of the reports of the benefits of A.I., questions linger about possible drawbacks.

Famed physicist Stephen Hawkins warned A.I. could harm the human race before he passed away.

In the end, A.I is technology, and so far it does not have a conscious or a moral compass.

Right now, lawmakers are rushing to learn more about A.I to try to regulate and possibly create safeguards.

ABC-7 Sunday Xtra host Saul Saenz sits down with KVIA creative direcor Eric Bowers, and STTE foundation member, Joseph Sapian, to talk about A.I.: the good, the bad, and what the world needs to look out for as A.I. innovation moves forward.

Saul also talks to ABC-7's Leloba Seitshiro who's multi-part series "The Rise of A.I. in the Borderland," examines how the new technology is changing our community.

You can watch the first installment in Leloba's series here, and the second installment here.
