Why humans and computers think better together

The Report: “Cognitive collaboration why humans and computers think better together,” by James Guszca, Harry Lewis, and Peter Evans-Greenwood, published in the Deloitte Review, makes a lot of sense.

The authors articulate the argument that computers should complement human intelligence. Rather than viewing Artificial Intelligence as something that is going to take away jobs, we should acknowledge the symbiotic relationship that exists between humans and computers. The strengths of the one counter balance the limitations of the other.

The goal, ultimately, should be intelligence augmentation. Rather than building machines that think like humans, we should design machines that help humans think better.

Algorithms can only do so much; they cannot implement human psychology or brain science.  The development of full Artificial Intelligence may not be achievable, after all.
