Aiza Khan, Humanities & Social Sciences
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has had a profound impact on various aspects of society. On the positive side, AI has improved efficiency in industries, leading to increased productivity and economic growth as well as enhanced convenience for individuals, etc. However, there are concerns about AI’s negative effects, such as loss of creativity in individuals, laziness in students, potential job displacement due to automation, ethical implications related to privacy and data security, etc. Balancing these aspects is crucial for harnessing the full potential of AI while addressing its challenges. As a student, I will also face the challenges and threats of career opportunities created by artificial intelligence and technology. To prepare for my future I’m studying MA Applied Linguistics, as I am passionate about the power of language and its ability to connect people from diverse backgrounds. I thrive on embracing diversity and inclusivity, believing that understanding different cultures and perspectives enriches our lives. I aspire to leverage my passion for linguistics, love for diversity, and commitment to inclusivity to create a more connected and empathetic world.
