When a lot of people hear “AI”, they might be thinking of the kind of AI you might see in the movies where sentient machines are performing complex, independent & creative thinking and strategizing, solving advanced tasks well beyond what humans instructed them to do. This is called “general (or strong) AI”. General AI does not yet exist. The AI implemented in thee world right now is “narrow AI”. Within narrow AI, machines perform a limited set of tasks (or even a single task), falling within the bounds of what it was designed to do. These machines should be considered “somewhat intelligent” as the machines are only emulating some of the mechanisms involved in true intelligence. Today’s version of AI is still immensely powerful and is actively changing the landscape of our society.
While re-imagining our world and businesses with AI, we need to be responsible. AI should be a benefit to the humans that it impacts. We need to be conscious of the principals used in designing these intelligent systems in order to deliver outcomes that benefit our society at large.
Let's eliminate inefficiency and drive intelligence.
