IBM considers the term “artificial intelligence” outdated and limited in application.  Their approach to cognitive computing is more accurately defined as “augmented intelligence.” IBM believes its true value lies in complementing human intelligence, rather than replicating it, allowing enterprises to make better, data-driven decisions, and focus on tasks where human judgement, intuition and values are paramount. IBM also recognizes that AI is misunderstood by many, including policy makers, and if often being mischaracterized. Prominent and influential voices are peddling fearful visions of a future where AI leads to mass replacement of human workers, or worse. To address such concerns, the Capstone team will compare and assess the current “for and against” positions of leading industry thinkers and technology experts on the ethical, governance and other non-economic risks posed by the increasing use of AI.
