MATT BERSETH | Why Artificial Intelligence Is More Human Than You Think

Many of the modern world’s most dazzling innovations — self-driving cars, digital assistants like Siri and Alexa, facial recognition on our phones — are powered by Artificial Intelligence. But while AI is a potent tool, it also is inherently a reflection of choices made by humans. Because humans collect, organize and categorize the data that fuels modern AI, human biases and error have almost unlimited opportunities to inform AI’s output. Should we trust AI? No — not blindly. AI is solving real problems today and, in many ways, making life better for us. But AI isn’t foolproof because the humans who created it are not. Recognizing the limitations of AI is essential to using it responsibly.
