TechFirst: Is AI our replacement … or a bionic arm that makes us smarter, faster, better?

I've written on this subject in the past, and I hope to do so again in the future. I very firmly believe that the best AI is the AI that works with humans to make our lives better. Believe it or not, this is a controversial opinion.


I got a chance to dig into this idea in a good amount of detail with John Koetsier on his TechFirst podcast. He also did a really great writeup on Forbes that is worth checking out if you're looking for some very excellent commentary on the subject.


I believe that very few jobs can be completely automated, and even fewer jobs should be completely automated. I think that by bringing together human and computer teams together in a way that draws on the expertise of both sides (an idea the chess world calls a 'centaur') we can achieve profound things on the very edge of the possible.
