Kozhikode: Any automation should have manual over-ride, said P J Narayanan, Director, International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad. The researcher in the areas of Computer Vision, computational cameras, and parallel computing was delivering a talk in UL Cyberpark on “Artificial Intelligence: Reality & Thoughts” jointly organised by Centre for Research and Education for Social Transformation, ULCCS and Calicut Management Association.
The professor cited the crashes of two Boeing aircrafts to substantiate his contention. Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System, or MCAS software, which is designed to help prevent the 737 Max from stalling repeatedly pushed the planes nose down, leaving pilots fighting for control. The tug of war between the craft and crew led to the crashes.
He expanded on the recent surge in AI research and products. The recent progress in several components of AI has indeed been impressive, though there is a wide divergence of views on where AI will lead humanity, ranging from technology replacing jobs and human lives to a dystopian world of singularity, - a moment which inventor-futurist Ray Kurzweil predicts will happen in 2045, when super intelligent machines transform humanity - with technology/AI becoming lord and master. The IIIT-H director also spoke on the need for AI-humanities multi-disciplinary approach, ethics in automation and privacy protocol.
