Do We Live in the Age of the Obsolete Human?

Nowadays technology is making our life easier, however, with increasing Artificial Intelligence (AI) There are many people who are afraid of losing their jobs.

In recent years, various artificial intelligence systems have “learned” a vast list of data through tags. For example, an image may be tagged with the words “llama (animal)”, but also as “llama (from flame)”. It is necessary to “train” an AI system using artificial neural networks That you can correctly differentiate each of these concepts.

This “supervised” training requires data that is painstakingly labeled by humans. Neural networks often take shortcuts, learning to associate labels with minimal, superficial information. For example, a neural network can recognize the presence of grass in a picture of a horse, as horses are often photographed in places where there is grass around.

we can make an analogy of algorithm generation Through a university student who hasn’t attended all of his classes for the semester, but voraciously “studies” all of his subjects the night before final exams. Although you probably won’t learn the lessons properly, it will be enough to “pass the test”.

There are neural networks that have been trained with little or no human-labelled data. These “Self-supervised learning” algorithms They have proven highly successful in human language modeling and, more recently, image recognition. These have revealed to us the actual methods that our brain uses to learn.

An example of an artificial intelligence application was developed by OpenAI company called ChatGPT, which has broken the world record for the number of subscriptions received in a short period of time. The method of learning from this application is primarily through “reinforcement learning”, which is based on rewarding desired behaviors and/or punishing unwanted ones. It enables you to observe and interpret your surroundings, take action, and learn through trial and error. It makes it easy to answer questions we commonly “google”, generate programming code snippets that only specific people used to write or “consult” on a particular topic. This has instilled fear in more than one person, seeing their current situation in danger.

However, when it comes to positions requiring problem solving, leadership, and initiative, artificial intelligence will not be able to replace a good professional with empathy, creativity, teamwork, adaptability, and understanding of context. Thus, AI will go as far as humans want to go and humans will continue as far as humans themselves want.
