There is a significant debate in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) about the best way to use technology to augment human capabilities. On one hand, automation involves using technology to perform tasks that were previously done by humans, potentially leading to the replacement of human labor. On the other hand, augmentation involves using technology to enhance human capabilities and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of human work. In order for humans to best perform with algorithms, it is important to consider how the technology can be used to complement and enhance human capabilities, rather than simply replacing them. This may involve training and education to ensure that humans are able to effectively use and interpret the results of algorithms, as well as careful consideration of the ethical implications of using AI in different contexts.
