Three intriguing things about Artificial Intelligence that are not talked about enough:
While it's widely understood that Artificial Intelligence is taking up more space in our lives and society, this isn't true everywhere in the world. In addition to the "Digital Divide," the development of Artificial Intelligence is creating an "Algorithmic Divide" between places in the world where Artificial Intelligence is proliferating and those where it is still unexplored.
This "Algorithmic Divide" is the seed of a profound anthropological transformation whose consequences on humanity are still unknown. The daily interaction between humans and algorithms - because it's a human characteristic - will inevitably bring changes and adaptations to the human species, potentially altering the way we think and therefore the rules and norms of our human societies. And of course, these adaptations will emerge and develop with varying intensities depending on the "Algorithmic Divide."
The pursuit of avoiding unfair biases inherent in the intelligent systems we develop - because they are inherited from our human thought process - is a humanly unattainable goal.
A bias that is eliminated is actually replaced by another.
When it comes to Artificial Intelligence, the essential question that we face today, and even more so for the future, is not so much about biases as it is about the impact that such new entities, even if their intelligence is limited, have and will have on human existence.
This understanding of the impact goes hand in hand with the absolutely important responsibility that falls on every creator of artificially intelligent entities, to continuously audit the alterations in our societies that the use of such systems are likely to generate, in order to continuously optimize positive effects and reduce negative ones.
This brings us to a fundamental point that every creator of Artificial Intelligence must understand.
An Artificial Intelligence that develops and becomes entrenched in our society hides another, because it necessarily gives rise to another: its alter ego. The one that will correspond to it.
If on one hand, an Artificial Intelligence becomes so efficient that it could, for example, sort through resumes according to a model of performance that is formidable in every way, another Artificial Intelligence will be developed to restore balance.
This "Dual-Sided Artificial Intelligence" (let's call it DSAI) effect is the advent of a new era of "Machine to Machine" interaction and competition in which creators of Artificial Intelligence have the responsibility to ensure that humans are always at the center and in the loop.
