Remaining human in a world of AI

Abstract:

This time, it will not be the AI winters we saw in the 1970s and 1990s, but a human winter, where the very relevance of human effort is being called into question. There is an irony inherent in this- developments in AI started to gain a strong momentum when an approach, modelled on the workings of the human brain, was adopted. This is now expected to make us obsolete! Further, as the discourse about the need for us to change and adapt to the new reality continues to gain momentum, I want to make the case that it is not so much by changing, but by staying true to what makes us human, that we will ride the AI wave; in fact, the success or failure of AI will depend on how human we remain.
