All in the mix: AI is about augmentation, not just automation

In the latest edition of Information Age, Dr Boris Altemeyer, Cognisess’ Chief Scientific Officer, discusses how AI will enhance, rather than replace, humans. Machines will always obey – AI needs us to calibrate, supervise and manage it to survive.

At Cognisess we recognise the complexity of the relationship between AI and humans, and what enormous benefits data science and machine learning can bring to many of our human systems and processes.

“We’re behind the curve if we only think of (AI’s) application in simple, or easily automated, tasks. Because some of the best areas for AI to work are the least obvious, and the most complex.”

He also explores why predictive people analytics is a better performance indicator than a CV.

“AI doesn’t have to understand its own unconscious bias, because it has none. AI does not need diversity and inclusion training. It’s incapable of taking an instant dislike to someone, secretly wondering whether someone’s planning on starting a family, or hiring someone who’s pleasingly similar to them.”
