In the face of digital technology and artificial intelligence, human imperfection lives on

by admin

Today, more than ever, progress remains as amazing as it is terrifying. Large-scale transitions have one thing in common: They’re emotional. From this point of view, artificial intelligence is a worthy heir to any industrial revolution. However, this eternal question remains: What is the place of human beings and will they be pushed to occupy a new place?

in The modern eraVulnerable to the frantic rhythm dictated by the machine, Charlotte tightens the same type of bolt, with the same tools, on the same assembly line. A vision of a world where robots would take control and humans lose their freedom in favor of the sole criterion of economic efficiency, this film by Charlie Chaplin The questions are as fascinating as they are. At a time when artificial intelligence is constantly being enriched by redefining the limits of its capabilities, human-machine interaction raises questions. Just like their contribution to the construction of our modernity, so is the nature of the hierarchy that will be established between one and the other.

Don’t let intelligence be a trick

We invented speed as we run Charlie Chaplin said. This forum could also consist of quotes from the brilliant director as his films depict this human being lost in the midst of technological advancement. He shows us through the absurd what worse progress can produce: slavery, when slavery is supposed to liberate. Turning it into our times, this same pattern could apply to AI tools, search engines, and algorithms of all kinds. By the recommendations they propose to guide our choice, don’t they actually run the risk of directing our thinking?

When Netflix suggests a movie list based on your viewing history, gpt chat Two-click offers a complete synthesis of Zola’s work, and Google provides sample answers to more complex questions.

But the Netflix algorithm will never know that one day, on another platform, it has found the author’s movie that you liked so much, that you would like to watch again. In the same vein, Chat GPT will never replace reading Zola’s full work, let alone the feelings I felt. As for Google, it can never claim to give all the answers to all the questions. Each of these tools is precious in our daily lives, but they all have the same limit: experiencing and being aware of each. Knowing this is essential in order not to be enslaved by the public recommendation system.

Leverage versus Stockholm Syndrome

Is man completely hostage to the machine? Of course, the font is intentionally forced. But all the same … it must be recognized, and knowing the limitations of the tool is a first step towards liberation from the possible effects of influence. By doing everything to get our attention, the machine effectively traps us in an ease and comfort that is sometimes hard to escape from, especially when we are used to delegating our choices to it. as in Stockholm Syndrome, the hostage may end up loving the warden, even if it is virtual. “Would you like to resume another episode? Don’t leave, this other video should cheer you up…”. Immense tools for development, growth, and innovation, and the solutions offered by artificial intelligence can be human progress’s best friend…as well as its worst enemy. It’s all about use, dosage, and education. To preserve and hone free will, let’s not give in to the ease of ready-made answers, let’s get out of the algorithms, let’s explore curiosities. Our exclusivity and the preservation of our free will are at this price. Action and reflection lead to liberation, when idleness and utility risk putting us to sleep, or even, in the long run, enslavement.

Calculating the average energy consumption of a Frenchman, Jean-Marc Jankovici He measured that we all live as if we had 600 slaves at our disposal. This number is eloquent, even absurd, but it shows above all that we have never done so many deeds in history. With digital, we are everywhere, all the time, on all fronts, but most often from our couch. The line between work and idleness has never been so fine. We are masters and slaves to this technology that we never master, but which has the potential to take over us if we are not careful.

For fun !

Even more than the hypothetical danger that such subjection would pose to posterity, its immediate effect lies in its ability to curtail pleasure. In enslavement, limitation is in the fore, individual sensitivity being an inexhaustible source of pleasure. The pleasure of choice, the pleasure of exploration, the magic of error that precedes reason, the magic of judging, searching, always, and then the final discovery. The satisfaction of getting the right answer doesn’t compare much to the happiness of finding a way to get to it. Isn’t the journey always more important than the destination? There is no joy in being right without the possibility of being wrong.

Rousseau (Jean-Jacques, not Sandrine…) spoke of the perfection of human beings as what distinguishes them from animals. This issue of perfection also plays a role in defining the difference between man and machine. If humans are fundamentally perfect, it is because they are always imperfect. Since it nourishes the desire that sets us on the path to improvement, imperfection must therefore be considered a valuable criterion. Thus, it is to be cherished rather than erased, and cultivated rather than fought against. Let’s leave perfection to the machine, let us always be wrong, humanity will be more beautiful.
