Are we going from "Artificial Intelligence" to "Augmented Intelligence?"

#artificialintelligence

I can't think of a reference to the intellect that would feel more unauthentic and fake. It's no wonder people turn to The Terminator or The Matrix to fathom what it's all about. Fortunately, after 60 years of AI rumors fueled by academia and movies, we're finally starting to see signs that it means more than just robots taking over. Working in the tech industry, it's ironic that the AI lightbulb clicked not through an understanding of machine learning or engineering -- but through the human challenges we face in the technology world. While at Yahoo! and Apple, it was amazing to be part of technologies that not only helped enable the modern cloud today but continue to support its more than doubling in performance every year.

No-collar workforce: Humans and machines in one loop--collaborating in roles and new talent models

#artificialintelligence

With intelligent automation marching steadily toward broader adoption, media coverage of this historic technology disruption is turning increasingly alarmist. "New study: Artificial intelligence is coming for your jobs, millennials,"1 announced one business news outlet recently. "US workers face higher risk of being replaced by robots,"2 declared another. These dire headlines may deliver impressive click stats, but they don't consider a much more hopeful--and likely--scenario: In the near future, human workers and machines will work together seamlessly, each complementing the other's efforts in a single loop of productivity. And, in turn, HR organizations will begin developing new strategies and tools for recruiting, managing, and training a hybrid human-machine workforce. Notwithstanding sky-is-falling predictions, robotics, cognitive, and artificial intelligence (AI) will probably not displace most human workers. Yes, these tools offer opportunities to automate some repetitive low-level tasks. Perhaps more importantly, intelligent automation solutions may be able to augment human performance by automating certain parts of a task, thus freeing individuals to focus on more "human" aspects that require empathic problem-solving abilities, social skills, and emotional intelligence. For example, if retail banking transactions were automated, bank tellers would be able to spend more time interacting with and advising customers--and selling products.


What is Augmented Intelligence in Healthcare? SD Global

#artificialintelligence

As electronic health records have become acceptable and accessible, there is so much in the healthcare space that can transform with machine intelligence. Machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies are now being used by healthcare institutions to improve diagnosis and care. But, to facilitate the technology's widespread use and implementation, it will have to pass the litmus test of compliances and standards. While that looks less likely to happen with AI implementation anytime soon, another relevant field is gaining traction in the healthcare space. Augmented intelligence – a concept that reflects the enhanced capabilities of human decision-making in clinical settings when augmented with computation systems and methods.
