Hmm. I'm not so sure about that assertion and logic. You can't prove "there is no god-like AI" -- so it doesn't quite follow that AI will be able to do anything humans can do AND do it better than us eventually. I mean, sure, maybe.. but.. 

The one problem I see is that machines and humans have different "desires" and sensory input, fundamentally.

So it would be like asking an autistic person to write a romatic comedy -- if you wanted an AI to do that. How do you infuse AI with the hopes/dreams/humor of humans?

Re: Event-Driven IT a Priority for CIOs
It sounds like that to me as well. It'll be quite interesting to see how far this goes and which route they'll take.

Re: Event-Driven IT a Priority for CIOs
mhhf1ve,

You're reminding me that I need to finish up another piece for another site, regarding the ways in which machine intelligence is beginning to develop something that looks very much like "intuition".  So far, although some parts of human mentation are not yet duplicated and surpassed on machines, there has not been any convincing demonstration that anything people can do with their brains and minds can't eventually be done better by machines with their processors and software  (other than "BUT I DON'T WANT IT TO BE!" which is still convincing to some humanists.) 

(We'll probably keep using quote marks around "machine intuition" for another generation, though, because humans desperately cling to the idea that there is something special about us; heck, there are still many people who pretend to be unable to see the evidence for evolution, and a few who can't accept that we're on a smallish planet orbiting a very common kind of star a long way from the center of a commonplace galaxy).

(Other thought: "humanist" may go from being linguistically parallel to scientist, artist, and parachutist (i.e. one who practices, uses, or has intimate knowledge of) to being linguistically parallel to racist or sexist (i.e. one who adheres to obsolete notions of superiority))

Re: Event-Driven IT a Priority for CIOs
@mhhf1ve A lot is going to be discovered with analytics, I have no doubt about that. 

Still, it's early days. That can be exciting to consider. Machine learning has a long way to go, and it's going to take AI going to the next level before we let computers make decisions.

Re: Event-Driven IT a Priority for CIOs
@mhhf1ve - I think some automation, like you'd previously mentioned is a good thing. Maybe humans tend to be a little self-absorbed in nature and even managers who should be focused on employee growth don't think of everything they might be able to. Still, I'd like to hold true to what a boss of mine always liked to remind us all, "You're smarter than the computer." Given some customer service issues I've had of late, I think we could all do to remember that.

Yup. More and more "opportunities" are going to be identified by algorithms, I think. Because human intuition may be just too slow.. or it may not transfer well from person to person. An algorithm will be loyal and stay with the company for as long as its useful.... 

We'll still need some human intuition.. hopefully.. :P

Re: Event-Driven IT a Priority for CIOs
@mhhf1ve That sounds ideal in theory, but I'm going to guess it is going to take a lot more to pull off in practice. 

But does it sound like where we are going? Yeah, it does.

Re: Event-Driven IT a Priority for CIOs
mhhf1ve, interesting perspective.  It clearly will be supportive of autonomous technology, but I think it can be an extended hybrid as well of artificial intelligence with "smarter systems" designed by CIO's and business users.

Re: Event-Driven IT a Priority for CIOs
@srufolo1, absolutely, it opens new options and business models as well. 

I see this as part of the ongoing opportunity for real transformation.  It can add new value and make technology real "solutions" to business problems.

Re: Event-Driven IT a Priority for CIOs
@mhhf1ve I should think that is very much a part of the automation strategy.
