Can humans and AI work side by side? A guide to what comes next

  1. Creativity — AI cannot create, conceptualize, or plan strategically. While AI is great at optimizing for a narrow objective, it is unable to choose its own goals or to think creatively. Nor can AI take a certain area of knowledge and apply this across domains or use common sense.
  2. Empathy — AI cannot feel or interact with emotions like empathy and compassion. Therefore, AI cannot make another person feel understood and cared for. Nor can it motivate. Even if AI improves in this area, it is unlikely that humans would opt for interacting with an apathetic robot for many human-touch services.
  3. Physical dexterity — AI cannot accomplish complex physical work that requires dexterity or precise hand-eye coordination, or deal with unknown and unstructured spaces, especially ones that it hasn’t observed.
    This means that, while there are categories of jobs that are at risk of becoming obsolete thanks to AI, it isn’t all bad news.
