In which areas of our world is artificial intelligence not likely to work? While we have made great strides, it is not clear where the technology may have the most serious consequences for our lives. AI systems are far from being intelligent enough to replace humans, so their impact on our society is still unknown. Some questions arise, however, from the fact that they’re not nearly as intelligent as a human.
While AI has come a long way since the first experiments, we still have a long way to go. A recent report by the National Science and Technology Council suggests we should be aware of its limits. Until we can learn more about its special genius, it will probably not work in most areas of our lives. For example, in computer vision, AI won’t be as good as a human, who’ll be able to understand what pieces make up a chess board? In natural language processing, the system is not likely to be any better than a human.
Automation is making humans redundant in various jobs. In areas such as cybersecurity, AI won’t be able to completely replace humans. It can be exploited, however. For example, an AI-based bot cannot identify the grammatical errors in a text, compared to a human. Artificial intelligence cannot perform managerial and political tasks, and is unlikely to replace humans in such a role.
