According to a recent survey there is a growing mistrust of new technology in the us, whereby particularly the artificial intelligence (ki) are poorly cutting out. This is from a survey of the content-service provider hyland. This dear 1.000 consumers ask to find out how technical development plays a role in their lives and how their confidence has changed in them thereby. The opinion researcher met less openness than expected.
Nearly three quarters (71 percent) of the participants in the survey said that their use of technology has increased during the pandemic – and 44 percent said they had risen significantly. The main reason for this is not in the home office, but driven is the increased use, above all, to distribute the time (37 percent). For after all, 34 percent, teleworkers made the rash for the increased use and 29 percent online purchasing, for example, food.
Worry before facial recognition
Social media drove the list of the least trustworthy technical developments. Every fun (20%) has no trust at all, and 32% have very low trust. In the artificial intelligence 41% have little or no trust. Almost every fun (18%) has no confidence in chatbots, and 24% have very limited trust. For smart speakers, 15% have no trust, 24% have very limited trust. More than half of the half (57%) that they will suffer damage by ki in the future. And 51 percent fired in social media.
More than every third (36%) has this fear of facial recognition. This is particularly pronounced at 18-24-year-olds of which almost half the lack of trust information, while only 27% of respondents surveyed on face recognition software.
No confidence in information from state hand
Trust in information through state jobs is obviously not particularly pronounced in the usa. Almost every fourth respondent announced that he is more likely to suspect the information on covid-19, which are provided by state bodies, or not familiarize them. More than a quarter (26%) of respondents have little trust or are neutral, which concerns their trust opposite their own medical professionals awarded covid-19.
Most confidence, on the other hand, enjoy family or friends (41%) when it comes to informing new developments in technology, followed by national broadcasting news (41%), technology publications (37%) and local news programs (33%). More than every fourth (28%) indicates that social media are the trustworthy source for technology theme. So here are obviously personal relationships more important than the opinion of professionals.
Trust through familiarity?
"Trust in technology begins with familiarity," says it in the report. We have to be addressed to us that there is a coarse discomfort for new technology trends such as artificial intelligence, chatbots and smart speakers. Healthy skepticism of consumer side is not a particularly new property. In the 1930s, people hated to be close to a telephone during a thunderstorm, because they could blurred that it could explode – only one example of how irrational hurting the acceptance can hinder the acceptance.
And today, the age is the technique, the more you seem to trust her. 30% of surveyed trust landline phones complete, 39% have a certain trust. Mobile phones trust 31% full, 49% trust something. Fax devices trust 30% of respondents fully, and 44% have a certain trust in this old-fashioned device.
