Something positive about #AI and #technology for the optimist in all of us: humans+computer is better than computer alone - How To Become A Centaur #weekend #longRead HT @gnats | Competitive Intelligence for International Business | Scoop.it

tavaresandro's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: we often focus on the negative aspects of digital technologies, from the loss of privacy to potential existential risks of AI (Think Terminator and The Matrix movies). However there are a number of scientists that believe we will augment humans to become more human+machine than replaced by machines. In this view of future evolution, Humanity slowly morphs into a machine by integrating it into our selves, changing our mind and our bodies so that we become undistinguishable from machines. 

This article eloquently explains how this has already started to happen - if only you know where to look.

thank you @tavaresandro for the reference to Kasparov book. "Kasparov uses his unrivaled experience to look into the future of intelligent machines and sees it bright with possibility. As many critics decry artificial intelligence as a menace, particularly to human jobs, Kasparov shows how humanity can rise to new heights with the help of our most extraordinary creations, rather than fear them."
