AI: Different views about AI impact

EXECUTIVE FORUM 2019 / A.I. & BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT / LUGANO KEYINSIGHTS #3

One of the biggest fears is that AI will take over and humans will not be in control any longer. During the Forum in Lugano participants explored how humans and AI can collaborate instead of compete, focusing on each other’s particular strengths.

EMPOWERING HUMANS TROUGH AI

Artistic intelligence, Emotional intelligence, Creative intelligence, there are many fields where the machines aren’t and won’t be able to surpass humanity: AI will just remove the most boring and repetitive work.

AI REMOVING THE NEED OF WORKING

“The factory of the future will have two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment.”

TRANSPARENT AI IN A HYBRID WORLD

People will interact with each other, having AI in the middle without even realising it. Any organisation as we know it will change. AI is becoming like Computer Science: it is everywhere, and you use it, you do not talk about it.

BEST AND WORST OUTCOMES

What we hope for, is a future where AI does what we dislike doing, in a transparent way and with a global common consensus. What we fear is a world where AI rules and we all are too much dependent on machines.
