Karen Yeung mentioned the fact that even within the most complex and evoluted machine-learning system, a human decisional capacity is still needed to curate the first outputs, and incrementally increase the pertinence of the AI work. But will this be true forever? Or will we live to see a day when news will be written by algorithms? Le Monde already uses automated algorithmic systems to write basic/simple articles such as election results. And if it happens to be a wider phenomenon extending to other professional fields, how can we re-think the place that the human would take within this situation?
Its a great question but isn’t it too linked to the previous subject about machine learning? Although we could def ask this question when it comes to algorithm used by Uber or Foodora, where is the human hoop behind those work models?
It would be interesting to mention that some media, including Le Monde in France, already use machine writing for some very simple news like local elections results.
I find your question interesting about the implications and consequences of the systematic use of algorithms in our daily life.
As your last question is very large (And if it happens, which environmental, social, economic, ethic and legal boundaries will have to be reshaped?), I think it would be better to narrow it. What do you think ?
