More and more, artificial intelligence (AI) agents trained through machine learning are reaching skill and discernment levels comparable to humans. Mark Tech Post brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “A New AI Study Reveals Machine-Learning Model Achieves Human-Level Skill in Describing Chemical Smell.

In the rapidly evolving landscape of technology, the debate pitting AI against human skill has become more polarized than ever. AI has made remarkable strides in various fields, raising questions about its potential to replace humans. It is essential to recognize, however, that AI and human skills are not mutually exclusive. Instead, they complement each other, and finding the right balance between the two is crucial for our future.

While AI excels in many areas, human skills remain unparalleled in several critical domains. Creativity, empathy, complex problem-solving, emotional intelligence, and moral reasoning are just a few examples of qualities setting humans apart from AI. These skills are essential in roles that require nuanced decision-making, social interaction, and the ability to adapt to unforeseen situations. Using cutting-edge machine learning algorithms, AI can be adapted to augment the human in these instances, rather than the other way around.

Real power will come with better understanding. Most decision makers still have little knowledge on how AI systems make decisions, and as a result, they are unprepared to understand and use the output created by those systems. Explainable AI allows users to comprehend and trust the results and output created by machine learning algorithms.
