Recently I finished the Executive Program in Augmented Intelligence™ by the IIEC, provided at https://courses10.com online learning platform. If you are interested, take a look at their programs.
One of the courses I loved was the one about Augmented Intelligence and the whole idea of augmenting not replacing.
Gartner defines Augmented Intelligence as follows:
Augmented intelligence is a design pattern for a human-centered partnership model of people and artificial intelligence (AI) working together to enhance cognitive performance, including learning, decision making and new experiences.
Ip.com has written an article that says:
Augmented intelligence is just a different perspective on technological advances, especially those that allow computers and software to participate in tasks that were thought to be exclusive to humans.
I think this is the best approach for the future of Humanity and that we need to take quick steps to see to it that us humans have jobs and security.
The article further explains:
Three Things You Need To Know About Augmented Intelligence
AI will Level Up Innovation
Since its inception artificial intelligence has evolved from an arcane academic field into a powerful driver of social and economic change. The common assumption is that AI will replace human labor altogether, such as the advent of autonomous vehicles and workplace automation. But this discounts the importance of human creativity. Beyond automation, there is also a complementary evolution in the processes of human design and innovation that build on computing technologies. Across a host of industries—medicine, engineering, entertainment, transportation, and design, AI and machine learning continue to introduce new innovations that augment
Creativity will Flourish
Our current era is often dubbed the “information age” or “knowledge economy.” But a more accurate characterization of the current era is a Creative Age –since creativity is the defining principle of our era. Even as computers automate routine labor, they will also amplify work that requires problem-solving and social collaboration. In this Creative Age, intrinsic passion is becoming pivotal to skilled professions so that economic needs (in the traditional sense) are becoming increasingly dependent on creativity and
Education will be Redesigned
As we move from the Information Age into the Creative Age, demand is growing for a profound transformation in learning at all levels of formal education (i.e., K-12, higher education, and workforce development). As a new generation of inventors are introducing technological innovation, schools will need to adapt accordingly. A key challenge for educators going forward is understanding the critical importance of human creativity in the context of AI and augmented intelligence. AI ensures that the nature of work is changing, meaning that educational strategies will need to deliberately pair creativity with technology in order to ensure that students value technology as well as amplifying their own talents and capacities.
