Augmentation instead of automation
To dive a bit deeper, AI is augmentative because it solves only one part of a three-part problem – prediction first, then judgment and, finally, action. Imagine a driver on a racetrack. If AI predicts that another driver is going to overtake them from the left, they must judge whether to stay the course, block, or accelerate. The driver then acts by executing the move safely and swiftly.
Similarly, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a variety of signals bouncing off internal body parts to predict what lies under the skin. But a doctor has to apply judgment to decide the best way to treat an injury revealed by an MRI scan.
