Can A.I. Do Everything for Us?

Episode 1596 (1:33:38)

Joseph from Orange County, CA
21 Lessons for the 21st Century

Joseph says that AI can more accurately predict things than humans, so why should we trust things like political decisions, medical decisions, and even financial trading to anything but AI? Leo says that we're not there yet. But in the not too distant future, that may be the case. Look at self-driving cars: they have come a long way and someday, cars will be completely automated. But when that happens, millions of drivers will be out of work. Now multiply that by brokers, lawyers, doctors, etc. 

Leo recommends the book 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari. In the book, AI still needs to be given a goal, and only humans can give it that. And in medicine, AI can't give you the bedside manner that humans need, the emotional care. What is the role of Humans and AI? That's going to evolve, but even perfect AIs aren't going to take over completely. And we're not even there yet.
