You all have heard the term “Artificial Intelligence.” We all have been raising opinion on AI since its emergence but are you all aware of the term “Augmented Intelligence”?
Augmented Intelligence is basically is an amalgamation of Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality. As Augmented Reality is a kind of technology that adds different layers of information on the top of reality. In a similar manner, Augmented Intelligence is a technology that adds layers of information on the top of the intelligent human being has and help them to be at their best.
It is often said that artificial intelligence will one day replace all the humans and their jobs. But, Augmented Intelligence focuses on the theory that AI will help humans rather than replace them. Additionally, it will allow people to understand the full capabilities of AI.
While AI assists humans with computation, memory, perseverance, precision, and speed, augmented intelligence helps humans to augment more human things like abstraction, breaking rules, judgment, nuance, listening and storytelling. It is friendly and creative.
Artificial Intelligence is not different from Augmented Intelligence, it is a different perspective on the technological advances. A fear grips our minds when we think about Artificial Intelligence and its consequences, while augmented intelligence helps us get rid of those fears and focus on the opportunities presented in the favor of mankind.
