In the Shallow with AI
As AI technologies continue to integrate and transform our society and organisations, questions around how these augment with human intelligence continues to be of much interest. Many have recognised the need for ‘humans-in-the-loop’ in AI, but most of these efforts have focused on eliciting human interventions at various points in the machine learning process rather than leveraging human ingenuity.
In this session we’ll briefly look at:
* The role of objective and subjective data, and how these influence data-driven insights;
* ‘Trans-contextual’ information and the implications for AI; and
* How human ingenuity and adaptability can play an important role in mitigating the unintended and unwanted consequences of AI.
