The Audire Iterum will have many major impacts on society when produced. It will be able to cure every known hearing impediment, since it bypasses all the structures inside the ear that can malfunction. Thus, the AI may adversely affect the hearing aid and cochlear implant industry by making these technologies obsolete. Organizations that produce hearing aids will be forced to adapt and produce the AI or perish. The AI will have much the same effects on the hearing aid industry as the internet does today. However, production of the AI will also create new jobs to replace the ones it will make obsolete. The technology used in the AI will pave the way for innovations in different categories of biotechnology. For example, nerve-splicing technology could be used to cure paralysis or blindness.
