The Future of AI and IA
International Society of Service Innovation Professionals
This talk explores the future of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Intelligence Augmentation (IA). First, a roadmap for solving AI is proposed. Second, an approach to measuring IA is suggested. Finally, the importance of trust, purpose, and human values are examined as "reality" is extended for populations of evolving responsible entities learning to invest systematically in becoming better future versions of themselves.
