Collaborative Intelligence: Human and AI Symbiosis

Stelian Brad - Professor @ Technical University of Cluj

Conference hall

9th November, 11:00-11:30

AI systems are not yet capable to make ethical, moral, and empathic unsupervised decisions. Recently designed ultra-large AI models have been trained and used in creative artistic activities or "intelligent" dialogue, but this is far away from inventive problem solving, where creativity brings real value when it finds compromise-free solutions to a problem. There are various harmful factors that limit the use of AI systems in decision-making without expert persons in the loop. This presentation highlights new values of collaboration between AI systems and experts and indicates that intelligent cyber-systems shall not be seen as replacers, but rather enhancers of experts. An illustrative example is introduced in this respect. Insights about the state of evolution of AI systems relative to "ideality" are also disclosed, as well as indications about the proper mutations on the AI system's DNA to evolve to superior levels.
