If you are familiar with web hosting, you probably know of the two mainstream platforms: Windows and Linux. Most shared web hosts offer Linux hosting due to the low cost and low maintenance, but there are also shared and dedicated hosts that offer Windows and even Mac hosting options. When selecting one of these options, it could get confusing, so I’m going to help you understand which platform is best for you. (more…)

AI, or Artificial Intelligence, is quite the hot topic currently. But nobody has specifically mentioned web design and development jobs being in danger from AI, so I figured I would bring it up 🙂 If you are new to this subject, there are various YouTube videos, which will clarify things for you. I’ve posted a few below.
However, you don’t have to start applying for a job at McDonald’s yet, so relax. In my opinion, most web designers and developers are used to evolving, we tend to change with whatever hits us. First it was Dreamweaver, then CMS now AI, Robots!
But I think we will end up in control of AI, rather than the other way round, and they will help us complete things faster, just as Dreamweaver, Joomla! and WordPress does now. Although, if they get smarter than us then who knows?
According to many of the leading AI scientists, it’s clear that AI is gaining ground in many ways. When you see Google, Facebook and other massive companies taking notice, then you know it’s no longer just in the realm of science fiction. But I also would hope all these companies and government agencies have the sense to make sure, or at least try to make sure, that AI does not get out of hand.
This could be accomplished by making sure what they develop has a fail-safe, just in case something goes wrong. It’s possible, however, that when AI gets far more intelligent than humans, and they will, they will simply find a way around our barriers, because they will be many times smarter, and therefore anything we think of they will find a better way.
I would like to hear your comments on this subject, do you think Robots will take our jobs 🙂
