AI And Humans: Partners Or Rivals?

AI and humans have an interesting relationship. More often than not, papers and Artificial Intelligence reports concentrate on how robots are going to replace people and take on all our work. The truth isn't that scary, but innovation will keep changing the skills that companies need to be productive and efficient. Therefore, understanding where things intersect is critical to your organization's future-proofing.

Understanding The Intersection of AI and Human Capability in L&D
Humans and AI intersect seamlessly in the L&D scene, discover how you too can be a part of this.

The future is more complicated and dynamic than ever, but using specialized software has the ability to reduce this uncertainty by growing our knowledge and improving the skills people need to adapt and evolve. In essence, this is the importance of understanding the relationship between human beings and AI. After all, people and machines working together in harmony can obtain the best results.

Evolution Of Enterprise Learning

Learning Management Systems are an excellent example of humans and AI working together. During the first generation of LMSs, the content was provided by the L&D department. The software served merely as a platform to manage things. However, the second generation brought a revolution; by introducing social elements to the process, it managed to empower learners and encourage them to learn from each other. Surprisingly, the third generation of Learning Management Systems is even more innovative. By seamlessly blending human and AI, it offers a fully customized experience that offers a huge competitive advantage. In other words, the third generation is all about personalization and automation by using technology while focusing on humans. Moreover, the arrival of the third generation was so fast that some organizations are still in the first generation.

AI Machine Learning And Deep Learning Vs. Humans

It is important to have a clear idea of what AI is and what isn't (i.e., most of what we see today is machine learning).  With this in mind, let's see what we humans consider AI versus what it actually is:

  • When computers are taking on human behaviors, that's Artificial Intelligence.
  • If we are dealing with computers that learn through experience using algorithms, then that's Machine Learning.
  • Finally, neural networks that drive algorithms are what's known as Deep Learning.

About This eBook

So, where exactly does this intersection occur? This is what this eBook tries to answer. The answer is not an easy one, as each person experiences technology at their own pace and in their own way. Let's have a quick overview of some of its chapters.

Deep Learning And Artificial Neural Networks

Earlier, we mentioned neural networks. This chapter covers their structure, evolution, and gives some examples of interaction.

AI Pillars In eLearning

As noted earlier, Artificial Intelligence and deep learning are two very important aspects of automation. Similarly to deep learning, AI also plays a very important role in eLearning. This chapter discusses the potential they have in the field of L&D and speculates about the anticipated results.

Components Of AI In Personalized Training

In spite of our tendency to think of AI as a thing of the future, some components of AI are already contributing to personalized learning. To list a few:

  • Auto-tagging
  • Deeper global search
  • Invite-to-watch

This chapter discusses these features and how we expect AI to evolve in the near future.

Upskill Learning

Not only is the fear that Artificial Intelligence will take our jobs not substantial, but also the opposite of the truth. This chapter discusses the many employment opportunities AI is creating and categorizes them in their respective fields.

AI And Humans Create A New Way Of Learning

To quote Larry Page:

Artificial Intelligence would be the ultimate version of Google. The ultimate search engine would understand everything on the web. It would understand exactly what you wanted, and it would give you the right thing. We're nowhere near doing that now. However, we can get incrementally closer to that, and that is basically what we work on.

Soon, adaptive learning environments will become the industry standard. Evidently, people learn in different ways and at different paces. Since adaptive environments allow each learner to keep an individual pace, it is only natural that they will be favored by the market. In the same fashion, AI also has a starring role in the years to come because it presents valuable, dynamic solutions that can't be achieved by other means. If you are interested in learning more about this, you can download the eBook Understanding The Intersection of AI and Human Capability in L&D and find out more about the major shift in learning we are about to experience.
