AI vs human-computer collaboration

We know that the strengths of humans are the weaknesses of machines (I mean computers). And vice versa.

Instead of striving to strengthen the weaknesses of computers and make them more human like, why not collaborate with them to join the strengths of humans and computers together to make a stronger combination?

Instead of asking “how can I make machines intelligent?”, a better question to ask is “what are the best ways to use the strengths of computers to augment ours?”.

That’s the key. It’s not just about using the strengths of computers. It’s about figuring out the right ways and combinations of using those strengths.

A thought to ponder upon…

conscious machines

One of the biggest areas of my interests is making intelligent machines. As we all know, the promise of AI has been unfulfilled for the past 40-50 years and there have been quite a few predictions by a lot of eminent scientists that machine intelligence is imminent and singularity is just around the corner.

I must admit that I don’t qualify to make any grand claims about AI, but I strongly believe it is possible to make machines intelligent. Don’t know when, but its possible. How?

Until then, I have a theory on what we can do today…
