Many rightly have feared the coming of technology, especially AI or Artificial Intelligence. Data is the new oil and overwhelming amounts of data are being collected. Some insist we need AI to effectively use all this information. Sylvain Duranton’s TED Talk, “How humans and AI can work together to create better businesses” gives us a fresh perspective.
Technology and automation have already taken away many jobs and it is predicted it will take away millions more in the near future. However, based on what I am learning, there seems to be some misunderstanding. I am currently working to use AI as an assistant or coach to help people live better.
These misunderstandings are explained very well in Sylvain’s TED Talk below. As he explains, companies are mistakenly using AI with the belief it will eliminate bureaucracy. This however is mistaken, like a bureaucracy, AI depends on rules and protocols even more than humans. He calls it “Algocracy”. Many are using AI to take out human bias and mistakes. This however is an even bigger mistake. Machines are good, but limited. Man is good, but bias. Man + Machine has the potential to do bette than either by themselves.
My current efforts are focused on using AI to help us generate comprehensive improvements by creating pervasive, reciprocal, selfish, selfless, synergistic interactions so everyone and everything benefits, or by practicing paneugenesis. Are you using AI? Please share your experiences below. I look forward to hearing how you generate comprehensive improvements.
