AI Assistants And Digital Cognitive Environments
Actual intellectual tasks are of high complexity. One way to cope with the increased complexity is to enhance human cognitive abilities using artificial intelligence.
Universal Problem
In the modern world, the complexity of current scientific, work and even everyday tasks has increased. Together with it, the load on a person has also increased. Even the simplest tasks require the ability to work with a large amount of information from different sources, to organize interactions with other people, to plan and to carry out activities.New tools and ways of organizing intellectual activity are needed to enable people not only to cope with pressing issues but also to move to more ambitious ones.
Solution
The creation of human-machine information systems in which man and artificial intelligence work together can help to cope with the increased complexity of the tasks. Artificial intelligence is able to detect non-obvious causal relationships, perform computational and modeling functions. Learning AI requires large amounts of data, but not all tasks can be collected with a sufficient sample. Human creativity, context and purpose can compensate for insufficient data. Through interaction with artificial intelligence, human beings gain new knowledge and tools to enhance their cognitive functions, as well as manage the development of information systems.
Target Image
In the future, human-machine information systems will outperform both humans and artificial intelligence. In the process of interaction, both humans and AIs additionally learn and develop their strengths.
Experiment Framework
Human-machine information systems are used in science, industry and medicine to conduct research and make decisions in difficult situations. For example, researchers at Stanford, MIT and the Toyota Research Institute have used artificial intelligence and computer simulations to accelerate experiments to create new batteries. IBM Watson Health project, linking scientific and clinical data with patient-specific information, helps clinicians diagnose and care guide.
Tools and Technologies
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Neurotechnology and cognitive sciences
  • Natural language processing
  • Human-machine interfaces
Планы на масштабирование
Human-machine interaction technologies can be applied not only to individuals and small groups, but also to large distributed teams. For example, to organize communication and collaborate on common tasks. Thus, artificial intelligence can contribute to the emergence and development of collective intelligence.
Standards and Values
Technology empowers people to solve complex and creative problems, rather than solving problems for people.
