The global market for artificial intelligence (AI) is predicted to grow twenty times by 2030, yet AI still requires human input to reach its full potential. Despite impressive growth in AI research, startups, and investments, AI cannot make perfect decisions without human intervention. For instance, AI applications like Rekognition, Amazon’s AI recruiting tool, and AI soccer cameras have made mistakes that are easily avoidable with human intelligence.
Artificial intelligence is inherently limited in tasks such as narrowing research focus, setting exploration prompts, exerting judgment, determining vital data, and explaining conclusions. Additionally, while AI can help you in business, AI lacks human soft skills like creativity, empathy, and teamwork. Although AI applications like ChatGPT can pass the Turing Test, no platform has passed the Lovelace Test.
AI needs more than human supervision; it needs human-centric commands. Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, envisions AI as a co-pilot, amplifying humanity’s power, creativity, and will. Fei-Fei Li, Sequoia Capital Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, reminds us that AI is made by humans, for humans, and impacts human lives and society.
Unlocking artificial intelligence’s potential relies on the human element, including multitasking, discernment, moral decision-making, empathy, and creativity. An example of this collaboration is Google’s 2009 ReCAPTCHA project to digitize its book archive, which successfully combined human intelligence and AI.In summary, creativity and adaptability are essential human qualities that artificial intelligence needs to evolve. By focusing on essential questions such as focus, curation, and criteria, we can bridge the gap and unlock AI’s true potential.
