AI (Augmented Intelligence) Trends Contributed Article from VentureBeat

Our CEO Omar Omar Tawakol shared his thoughts on the trends around AI (Augmented Intelligence) in a contributed article for VentureBeat. In the piece, he touches on a wide range of topics ranging from AI exoskeletons, Hippocratic oaths for AI, the history of technological disruptions and more.

One topic that’s particularly relevant to what we’re working on here at Workfit is Augmented vs Artificial Intelligence and how we define the difference.

“We call this type of AI “augmented intelligence,” and it is a twin of artificial intelligence. While both techniques use algorithms and data to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, they differ in the types of tasks they target. For example, augmented intelligence is all about identifying desired outputs and then using technology to help the workers produce those outputs better, faster, and cheaper.”
