This New Report Details the Rise of AI Natives

It’s safe to say that AI (Artificial intelligence) has become a part of our world whether we like it or not, but many people seem to be scared of it because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up violating their privacy to one extent or another. The general fear surrounding AI that occurred during its initial days lead to a lot of dystopian scientific literature being made around it, and this is something that has permeated conversations about the subject in the real world as well.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that these concerns might not apply to AI as it is being implemented right now. A new report released by Prolego talks about a new kind of consumer that they are calling AI natives, and they are basically individuals that have grown up with the concept of AI and are therefore not all that concerned with it with all things having been considered and taken into account.

These consumers understand AI on an intuitive level which makes them view it in a much more logical light. While their opinions surrounding AI might not always be positive necessarily, they are less fearful of it and try to see it for what it is rather than viewing it with suspicion. There are still a few concerns that people have about AI, but these concerns have more to do with a concentration of power with 52% of people that were surveyed for this report saying that it might give a small group of people disproportionate power over the rest of the population.

What’s more is that the consumers that generally tend to worry about how AI will affect their privacy generally don’t seem to take all that many steps to protect themselves online. 55% of them have never used a VPN, so it stands to reason that their privacy concerns are not actually based in logic. It will be interesting to see the rise of AI natives over the years because they might be a lot more comfortable with this tech.
