Humanity and AI

Monday, February 11th, 2019

Another great talk from the a16z Summit by Frank Chen who is a partner at Andreessen Horrowitz. A lot of the discussion about AI is around the disruption it creates to jobs, both in high skill and low skill professions. Tech-optimists on the other hand talk about how technology eventually creates new jobs that we unthinkable before that would balance out the job losses.

In this talk, the presenter helps us to see that the discussion is not about humans versus AI. The key is to have AI take over the more routine tasks while allowing humans to handle more non-routine creative tasks. This helps productivity improve even more than either humans or machines can do individually. The video has lots of cool examples of how this is currently being implemented across industries in the present time and is well worth a watch.
