“Humans have the magical capability to update themselves very easily unlike the humongous codes that a machine requires to update itself.”
AI or Artificial Intelligence is an influential trend. It is so influencing and dominating, that many people take it as threat, as it could replace them.
But, change is the only constant and changes bought by the technology are meant for the people’s good. Then, how can we help AI mingle with our workplace and entire world?
Acceptance: Accepting is the first step towards reducing the mental pressure. Hence, accepting the change will only bring us near to the reality and help understand how to deal with the new element.
Understand the limitations of AI: ‘Artificial Intelligence’ has the term ‘artificial’ in it. Anything that is artificial has certain limitations. Let’s consider the example of an artificial tooth. Can it be ever as strong as the original one? (People with one artificial tooth are advised by dentists to not harshly byte using that particular tooth.) Similar is with AI. The artificialness of AI can only meet certain demands, and so it can’t match the original capability of a human brain. Hence, we are safe and better.
Skills will evolve too: Humans have the magical capability to update themselves very easily unlike the humongous codes that a machine requires to update itself. In this context, it is important for the humans to focus and practise the complex jobs. The word complex is very different than the word complicated. Theodore Kinni writes in a blog, “Complicated problems can be hard to solve, but they are addressable with rules and recipes, like the algorithms.” However, complexity of the problem refers to number of components involved in a system. This brings too many unknowns and too many inter-related factors that makes nearly impossible for the machine to answer; as for every case the change in one component will change the others too.
For example, introducing a new business product in a new area is a complex problem. A coded robot can’t follow a set of rules to claim a best possible solution.
While the above points are thought-provoking, it is interesting to see how dynamics of AI will change the world for better.
