When faced with a challenge, human beings are generally quick to first try to develop creative solutions. We tend to pick the most logical explanation we can find, ignoring all contradictory or unprovable hypotheses in the process. However, this irrational pattern of thinking could eventually sabotage our efforts to create an actual intelligent machine. A cognitive bias known as rationalization is one such phenomenon that is tricky or even dangerous for AI.

And they were often bested by AI pilots.

Among the biggest trends in technological advancement that have been raising such questions are automation and hyperautomation. The two are different yet interrelated. And while the goal of each is, ultimately, improving and standardizing processes in the most efficient way possible, they represent two types of approaches to deploying machines to streamline processes.

The world of work is changing. Artificial intelligence, automation, and robotics will make this shift as significant as the mechanization in prior generations of agriculture and manufacturing. While some jobs will be lost, and many others created, almost all will change. Read the research, insights, and innovative ideas that are shaping the future of work.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is providing an increasing number of recommendations to human decision makers. We must therefore make sure that we can trust not just AI but also its whole ecosystem. The notion of fairness itself is fluid and requires a multi-stakeholder consultation.

Advances in AI have allowed us to make progress in all kinds of disciplines – and these are not limited to applications on this planet. From designing missions to clearing Earth’s orbit of junk, here are a few ways artificial intelligence can help us venture further in space.

Robot dogs have been around for a while now, but most of them can’t replace the emotional connection that exists between us and man’s best friend.
