Why "Augmented Intelligence" is Trending

What is Augmented Intelligence and why has it become a business buzzword?

MachineLearning

2018 finds many sectors making a vernacular shift away from Artificial Intelligence (AI), but not merely to allay people’s growing trepidation surrounding the term. Humans remain necessary for AI to be effective. Unsupervised machine learning is still prohibitively complex and expensive, and supervised machine learning can only go so far. AI has other limitations; Natural Language Generation (NLG) technologies are not being employed to write novels or legislation, but rather to summarize complex data sets or churn-out rote descriptions for websites.

For decades Hollywood has entertained the public with stories about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) will become smart enough to replace us. These stories may have an air of authenticity for manufacturing workers, especially as machine learning has enabled robotic process automation (RPA) to handle increasingly complex tasks. But some may rightly feel it is nothing new or particularly worrisome; factory workers have seen their jobs supplemented by machines for many years.
