One question that of course came up during the panel discussion is whether or not humans are still necessary and if so what their role would be. The panel members are unanimous in their belief that AI is a tool and as such will always need humans who have the capacity and understanding to utilize these tools. Whatever new technology we use, is only as useful as our intelligence. Having said that, our intelligence is being enhanced by these tools, especially is we think of intelligence not as individual, but as collective intelligence. AI is not going to supersede human intelligence, it is a technology that can support collective intelligence, for instance in decision making processes. In order to be able to utilize these technologies, it is important to educate ourselves.
