Neural networks can disempower human workers: the case for human intervention amidst rapid AI adoption

Despite a recent Oxford University survey finding that AI will have a 50% chance of outperforming humans in all tasks in just 45 years, there are numerous complex tasks where human intervention is imperative in order to provide the level of transparency needed.

Neural networks have become the alchemy of our age, the search for a magical, mystical process that allows you to turn a pile of data into gold. It is widely seen as a silver bullet that can generate new insights and expert decisions on an unprecedented speed and scale. Yet this ignores the reality that ‘deep learning’ systems are difficult to create or audit and most organisations lack the necessary in-house expertise or ‘data hygiene’ to use it effectively.
