People & world of AI Work Together
It is possible to have humans and World of AI (Artificial Intelligence)be co-workers. A future does not have to be all doom and gloom. There is a way for both to cohabitate and Google CEO view on AI, Sundar Pichai says, “Google is leading the way in this effort.”
The Google Corporation loves its AI algorithms and they do a very good job of handling a lot of mundane tasks. But there will always be a place for the human worker. This is because those algorithms are not perfect
One weakness of AI algorithms
There is a good reason why humans should be working alongside AI robots. That reason is that neither group are perfect. The algorithms can miss important clues or misidentify a situation. Humans can correct these mistakes by double checking the AI robots’ work.
But then humans are not perfect either. This fact makes AI an important addition to the workforce. Humans become tired and often miss certain clues or activities. AI can double check their work to catch any inappropriate behavior.
It is a win-win for everyone involved
A company gets relief from some of its expenses and workers still get to be employed. Also, Google is demonstrating that the weaknesses of both can be covered without hurting the economy or the human workforce.
They are also demonstrating that Artificial Intelligence is not something to be afraid of. It is not the AI big bad monster many top business leaders claim it will turn into. AI can work alongside humans in a positive way ensuring that corruption, fraud, and other negative behavior can be curtailed.
Google & the driverless car (Waymo)
The parent company of Google is still having one of its business units develop a driverless car. The reason for this may be because of the imperfections that accompany all humans. Google’s associate company may think that AI can do a better job than humans and not make as many mistakes.
It is hoped that the company developing the driverless car will learn the same lessons that Google has learned. AI will miss things and make its own set of errors. This lesson should tell that company that there need to be controls placed over AI drivers allowing humans to take over when needed.
Other protocols are needed
Knowing that AI is not perfect and need help from humans from time to time, there are some questions that come to mind. In the case of the driverless car, how will owners know their car is self-contained? By this it is meant, how does an owner know that some outside influence cannot commandeer their AI driven car?
Given the example above, how will these flaws be rectified to stop a good hacker? The passengers in the car may be more vulnerable with AI than without the driverless mechanism.
It will be interesting to see how all this works out. Humans and world of AI working together peacefully and how the passengers will be protected from takeovers.
