Google Company has been a multinational business for decades now dealing with
specifically internet-related products and services. The company is among the best four
companies (Amazon, Apple, and Facebook) in the world. Google, just like any other of its
competitors, is looking toward advancing into new technological development such as Artificial
intelligence and quantum computing. Artificial intelligence involves the development of a
computer system that can perform tasks on receiving visual perception, voice commands, and
problem-solving requests. Quantum computing uses quantum theory to develop computer
programs that involve natural behavior of matter and energy. As such, this paper will focus on
giving a brief description of the benefit, roles, risks, and privacy issues involved in this new
development. An outline of what the paper entails is also provided as a guide for the reader. Note
that this paper is only a summary of the Google CEO response on some questions asked during
the business forum at the World Economy Forum about Artificial intelligence. The CEO also
gave a brief review of the company's plan and how they plan to advance its technology using
quantum technology and AI.

A summary of the paper
1. Introduction to Artificial Intelligence
The high demand for AI technology is due to the multiple benefits associated with it.
First, the use of AI programs is expected to be more efficient and effective since it will
reduce the chance of having an error. It will also reduce the tasks carried out by acting as
assistance or advice in various situations (Pichai, 2020).

They can think logically without emotion and make rational decisions with less or no
mistakes. They are also more energetic than humans since they do not need to rest. AI
machines can work full time without getting exhausted.
They can make weather predictions base on their system analysis, and also, there is a
possibility of more advancement to increase their accuracy in their forecast. Farmers and
travelers can work and prepare well in advance for the changes.
One of the significant drawbacks of AI is that it cost a lot of money to acquire the device
and application with this level of technology. This makes them inaccessible to most of
the people, leaving them in the same situation.
The machines are programmed only to handle what is programmed in them so they
cannot do any other task other than that. But more advancement is evolving, which
creates a development possibility for AI machines that can multi-task (Pichai, 2020).
Robots can lead to severe losses of job which leave a large population without
employment. This increases the rate of poverty in the world.
2. Industrial and Government Regulations that affect AI Technology
Regulations refer to the guidelines and rules made and enforced by authority or by a
regulatory body. This regulation can either support the advancement of AI or put
limitations that discourage the use of AI technology (Pichai, 2020).
The responsibility of the organization is to comply with these rules to avoid breaking the
Regulation affecting AI Technology
Some of the examples of regulations that influence AI technology include data protection
law, fraud detection.
Challenges faced in AI Technology
The implementation of AI technology may expose the company to some issues such as
data issues, lack of people's power, and the issue of having low trust in AI capabilities.
The issues of data scarcity that are required to enable the AI application are rarely
available, and the most powerful AI Application today depend on labeled data for
3. Customer Privacy and Security
Customer privacy refers to customers' information protection as it relates to products or
services one gets from an organization or an enterprise.
How AI affects Consumers Privacy
The use of AI applications can enable a person to track down an individual across
different devices at any place.
They can also discriminate and lead to unfair judging of human being capability since
they seem to be more effective than humans.

AI may lead to more risk of data exploitation because even with the current system, we
are not sure of where our data is. The use of AI will then make the matter waste due to its
advanced nature (Pichai, 2020).
4. Effects of AI on the Health Sector
AI can assist or improve the efficiency of the physician operation through the use of an
application that helps them to quickly detect diseases such as cancers in their early stage
before they become chronic.
The technological device provided for healthier practice help people to be proactive in
managing their activity and health.
AI advancements such as quantum computing can help to conduct research and enhance
discovery in medicine. This saves a lot of time, and also their result is very accurate.
5. What is the Transparency and Assurance of AI
AI has the potential of making significant changes in the transport sector some of the technology
already applies in the road to control traffic and now automotive companies are looking forward
to developing automated vehicles for both industrial and commercial services
Today most companies have adopted digital output and digital service through the use of
computerized machines. For example, banks have now advanced their ATM not only to allow
withdraws but also deposit. This shows how much people and businesses are appreciating the use
of more advanced technology.
This summary involves all the issues that revolve around AI technology and its concept.
It gives a clear picture of the advantages of AI and its disadvantages. It identifies the
effect AI has on customer privacy. The last topic reviews the transparency of AI in
health, transportation, and production.
