A gateway to human expansion

Technology often changes the rules of the game and success in the face of change depends, to a large extent, on the ability to adapt. In this sense, one of the most frequently asked questions facing the constant growth of artificial intelligence is How will it change our lives?. Not only in the field of work, mobility or health, but also in education and upbringing. “My kids don’t ask me a lot of factual information. They go straight to siri or they ask ChatGPT, Rebecca explained.

Her sense of humor makes listening to her even more entertaining.

Thus, once again the human-machine relationship is the focus of the conversation. The expert assures that this link is going to be transformed as technology is incorporated into different areas. “Artificial intelligence is not a matter of technology but of human expansion”, Hwang stated. Based on this concept, he maintained that it is essential to understand “how to amplify the human attribute”what machines have not yet been able to replicate: creativity, emotion and the connections we achieve with each other. “In all areas in which the human being has a role, we must promote what the machine cannot do”, Rebecca explained.

The human role in the new scenario

In a world that has already changed and that, in Hwang’s wordsit’s found “on the cusp of what may be a point of no return”it is necessary to understand the human role in the future. “In such a particular context that we are living as Argentines, the fact of taking a space to know what the technology and innovation trends are, seems appropriate to us to continue growing and learning”, said Cristian García SarubbiDirector of Communications and Human Development of the OSDE Group, in dialogue with For you.

In a full room, the talk covered different application areas and examples of artificial intelligence.

As an organization, the word containment defines us, because we are the link between a provider and a partner. Understanding what our role is going to be in this era of technology and what ideas we can incorporate to make this containment relationship better are challenges that we must analyze.

About, Rebeca Hwang addressed the reality-fiction duality that incorporates artificial intelligence and the philosophical dilemma that its use represents. “We have created a technology with great potential to do good, but without control or limitations it can also be used in harmful applications”he warned.
