Unleashing AI's Promise: The Human Touch
The global market for artificial intelligence (AI) is expected to increase twenty-fold by 2030. However, AI's growth and learning are dependent on human guidance. Despite its rapid expansion, AI has limitations, and incidents involving AI have increased twenty-six-fold since 2012. To overcome these challenges, AI needs to learn from humans in areas such as multitasking, discernment, moral decision-making, empathy, and creativity.
AI applications, like ChatGPT, can pass the Turing Test but have not yet conquered the Lovelace Test. Prominent technology experts, including Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, believe AI will function as a co-pilot, complementing human capabilities. AI requires human intervention to unlock its full potential, which involves guiding AI through curation and understanding our role in AI curation.
A successful example of human-AI collaboration is Google's 2009 ReCAPTCHA project, which digitized Google's book archive through human assistance. By combining artificial intelligence with human intelligence, we can achieve significant tasks in an abbreviated time, boost AI capabilities, and advance artificial general intelligence. Fostering a synergistic relationship between humans and AI is the key to unlocking AI's potential and shaping a brighter future.
