AI vs NI

Posted on: June 19, 2021

I heard someone say this in a YouTube video: Artificial intelligence (AI) is no match for natural ignorance (NI).

Artificial intelligence is no match for natural ignorance.

The context for this quote was how Facebook claimed that it had AI that could raise “conflict alerts” of “contentious or unhealthy conversations” to administrators.

Such AI probably uses natural language processing. However, it is no match for nuance, context, and natural human ignorance. The example highlighted in the video was people arguing the merits of various sauces. Case closed.

We do not have to wait for robot overloads to destroy humanity. We are capable of this on our own.
