What Leaders Need to Know About AI
Why should human-centered leaders care about artificial intelligence?
AI Systems are here to make us a lot more productive. Ideally, they are going to help us to be more efficient and more effective.
What are we talking about with artificial intelligence? In the book, you define it but help our listeners. When you’re discussing artificial intelligence what exactly is that?
If you teach an AI system an algorithm to complete a specific task, it’s going to do that extremely accurately, even more accurately than humans. But it doesn’t have the common sense, reasoning, and abstract thinking that humans have. So if it fails on a particular task, it’s not going to know how to resolve that issue. That’s where humans come in, and we need to help the AI system resolve the issues that the AI system cannot resolve.
Let’s discuss some other myths that you address in the book that are important for anyone who is either working with AI, relying on it, or thinking about implementing it. And why mistakes should be expected.
Why AI doesn’t eliminate bias.
Is it also a myth that sophistication is always superior?
When when we’re thinking about how artificial intelligence can improve our business processes and decision-making, what are some ways we can be thinking about using it to its best effect?
Using Artificial Intelligence to optimize decisions making and improve the efficiency of business processes.
Understanding the short-term and long-term benefits, and the metrics to measure the system before its development.
