The article identifies current limitations in the understanding and acceptance of AI, highlighting potential fears, ethical concerns, and cultural resistances. Regional and sectoral divergences in AI perception are also explored, aiming to identify the root causes of such disparities. Simultaneously, the article examines the positive progress and developments that AI has brought about. It outlines future perspectives of AI, exploring developmental potentials, challenges to be addressed, and strategies to enhance public understanding while promoting responsible and sustainable use. In conclusion, the article reflects on the role of institutions and civil society in shaping the future of this well-trodden path, emphasizing the importance of open dialogue and accessible information to foster harmonious coexistence among the various stakeholders in the field.
