Synthetic Intelligence (AI) ought to be designed to incorporate and steadiness human oversight, company, and accountability over selections throughout the AI lifecycle. IBM’s first Principle for Trust and Transparency states that the aim of AI is to reinforce human intelligence. Augmented human intelligence signifies that the usage of AI enhances human intelligence, somewhat than working independently of, or changing it. All of this means that AI programs are to not be handled as human beings, however somewhat considered as assist mechanisms that may improve human intelligence and potential.
AI that augments human intelligence maintains human accountability for selections, even when supported by an AI system. People due to this fact should be upskilled—not deskilled—by interacting with an AI system. Supporting inclusive and equitable entry to AI expertise and complete worker coaching and potential reskilling additional helps the tenets of IBM’s Pillars of Trustworthy AI, enabling participation within the AI-driven economic system to be underpinned by equity, transparency, explainability, robustness and privateness.
To place the precept of augmenting human intelligence into apply, we suggest the next finest practices:
- Use AI to reinforce human intelligence, somewhat than working independently of, or changing it.
- In a human-AI interplay, notify people that they’re interacting with an AI system, and never a human being.
- Design human-AI interactions to incorporate and steadiness human oversight throughout the AI lifecycle. Deal with biases and promote human accountability and company over outcomes by AI programs.
- Develop insurance policies and practices to foster inclusive and equitable entry to AI expertise, enabling a broad vary of people to take part within the AI-driven economic system.
- Present complete worker coaching and reskilling packages to foster a various workforce that may adapt to the usage of AI and share in some great benefits of AI-driven improvements. Collaborate with HR to reinforce every worker’s scope of labor.
