While many artificial intelligence (AI) experts are enthusiastic about the technology’s potential, some are also wary. Among them is Tsing Hua University professor Wang Jilong. In this article, he analyzes in which areas AI is superior to human intelligence. He raises the question of whether humankind will be prepared for the disruptions AI technology will create. Humans, he cautions, should take pre-emptive measures lest AI technology replace them as innovators and thinkers. He proposes that regulations need to rein in AI developments; alternatively, humankind needs to learn to integrate with AI. getAbstract recommends Wang’s insights to people interested in AI technology developments and the ethical issues surrounding them.
