While artificial intelligence is a force for good, there are times it ought to be deliberately dissed. Else, we run the risk of losing our humanity.
I start writing this piece on an ironical note. On the one hand, today, I have finally managed to hack my heart rate down to the ideal 72 beats per minute after much work aided by artificial intelligence (AI)—a theme I wrote on with much gusto last week. On the other hand, the faces of a few men assail my thoughts, make me smile, and compel me to wonder whether AI can ever recreate humanity and the innate intelligence embedded into our beings.
