Artificial Intelligence can be an incredibly useful tool for many people daily. We use AI in our phones, automated cars, online shopping, advertising, smart thermostats, etc. At its core, AI is the ability of a machine to display human-like capabilities such as reasoning, learning, planning, and creativity, according to the European Parliament.

If you're not a big fan of computers and machines becoming more prevalent in your everyday life...I have some bad news for you, AI is growing, and it's not going anywhere anytime soon. If Statista's projections are correct, AI is worth around 100 billion dollars, and in the next decade, AI should grow "twentyfold" and be worth two trillion dollars by 2030.

Only time will tell what the future of AI looks like in our day-to-day lives. The possibilities are endless. Who knows what AI will be able to accomplish down the road. Hopefully, computers won't take over the world because we might need a superhero to save the day. What if this superhero was the person for the job?

AI was used to create a superhero and villain that represents each state. I want to know if you think AI did a good job with Iowa's hero.

Unimpressed...

Um, if computers are so much faster, smarter, and more creative than humans, how could this possibly be the superhero for Iowa?! I can't be the only person who thinks this hero and villain are just kind of...meh. If you were to see this hero on social media or the internet and it didn't say "Iowa" on the screen, you wouldn't have any idea that this hero represents the Hawkeye state.

I'm not saying the red superhero outfit doesn't look cool but couldn't it at least have been black and gold? Iowa is called the Hawkeye State for a reason. If I were the boss of whatever AI program created this superhero...I'd ask it to go back to the drawing board.

What do you think? Sure, it looks alright but I can't see any way how this hero would represent Iowa. It looks like any plain old superhero you'd find in a Marvel movie to me. There's nothing really about this design that stands out to me or represents Iowa. What would your Iowa superhero look like if you could design one?
