Humans have anxieties as well as expectations for artificial intelligence. This study attempted to identify the expectation and anxiety factors affecting the attitude toward artificial intelligence innovation and to ascertain how much influence they have on current artificial intelligence innovation. This study considered that attitudes toward artificial intelligence may be different for each generation sharing a similar technology change culture. Therefore, the researchers limited the research subjects to I generation, which is the main users of artificial intelligence in the future. As a main result, the factors of expectiation of 'performance gain', 'positive social impact', and the factor of anxiety of 'threat to human-oriented social value' were drawn, and these factors influenced weak and strong artificial intelligence respectively. The results of this study suggests that artificial intelligence should develop into a pleasant relationship with humankind.
