Artificial or Augmented Intelligence:
Which Solution is Right for Your Project?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the latest ‘gadget’ that companies want to add to every project. However, it’s not the silver bullet that many folks hope it to be. It has its strengths and limitations. To overcome AI’s limitations, Augmented Intelligence optimizes the strengths of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning (ML), and human capabilities.
The fundamental limitation of AI is not the programming, but the design of the AI algorithms. Artificial Intelligence is a rules-based solution, and a traditional rules-based AI requires complete and accurate rules. It’s up to the designers to accurately define the right rules. Historically, humans are not very good at predicting every eventuality or possibility, and thus do a poor job of specifying the rules.
And then there’s the issue of the data used to train and operate an AI system.
