Artificial intelligence has become a trend. Day after day companies from all over the world, startups, government administrations and countless corporations join it. Developing true computational intelligences or, sometimes, conceiving systems that have little to do with this advance. Being in an embryonic state, the term is already in place.

For this reason you should not lower your guard. The deployment of AI must continue, with rigor and generalized form in all aspects. Because according to Dave Heiner, strategic policy advisor at Microsoft, the biggest risk related to artificial intelligence is an insufficiently rapid deployment in all fields of human endeavor.

Artificial intelligence should not be in the hands of a few

According to this specialist, computational intelligence is useful wherever intelligence is useful, “which is almost anywhere”. At the recent Microsoft Summit in Sydney, said the intention of these technologies is to “amplify human ingenuity” in industries such as education, health and even governments, not to make humans redundant.

Furthermore, according collects ZDNet, he said that the widespread deployment of the IA not be possible if they are handled only four or five companies.

In line with Heiner’s reasoning, Steve Clayton, chief storyteller and general manager of Microsoft AI, said the company is urging business leaders to replace the mentality of labor savings through automation, manufacturing and creation mentality. . It is not about replacing workers as such, but about making them better.

The argument that humans will be replaced by artificial intelligences , according to Julia White, corporate vice president of Microsoft Azure, assumes that humans are not beings that learn, grow and adapt. That, of course, is not true . White explained it to ZDNet in a very simple way: “The fact that I can now have a smartphone and a PC does not mean that I, as a human being, is no longer relevant, I am actually more capable, I can communicate with more people. be more efficient, I can do more. ”

In these days organized by Microsoft, the importance of user confidence was also highlighted . Because these intelligent systems need data and these must be facilitated by them. If they do not trust that they will be put to good use, they will hardly give them up and it will be difficult to develop truly effective technologies.
