There are two general ways in which AI can interact with humans:

  1. Implants of AI devices into human bodies or brains — Such implantation has already begun with health monitors and could grow to include cognitive access to general purpose digital computing. Once such is accepted, it is possible that humans will emerge with behavior largely defined by its implants therefore qualify as a hybrid AI systems.

  2. Embedding of AI systems into business or government organizations — It is possibliites that the behavior of organizations using AI systems for business decisioning will eventually be defined in behavior largely by those systems and would therefore qualify as a hybrid AI systems.

How probable are these possibilities, considering human history and current cultural trends in technology acceptance?

  • $\begingroup$ @Harrichael ,Simply because it's a scientific research field.Anyone can say YES or No but here...that yes comes with approve not only assumption. $\endgroup$ – quintumnia Aug 4 '17 at 8:02
  • $\begingroup$ I'm quite satisfied with @DouglasDaseeco's edit. I think this is an important philosophical question, and well within the bounds of issues this Stack is meant to address. $\endgroup$ – DukeZhou Aug 4 '17 at 19:21
  • $\begingroup$ Elon Musk and others are on the record with the opinion that the hybrid model is a near certainty for humans. (When I get time, I'll try to run down some links, of no one else beats me to it!) From the standpoint of economics, my opinion is that the increasing complexity will result in a necessity for economies to be managed by strong AI, as opposed to humans or legislative bodies, which would merely interject requirements consistent with human needs and goals. Something like 30% of stock trading in the US is conducted by automata, and I suspect this number will only rise. $\endgroup$ – DukeZhou Aug 4 '17 at 19:33

These two are not "general" ways in which AI interact with humans , especially not the first one. In fact most of the applications we have complex AI algorithms deeply rooted in them , your search engine , smart-reply , translating systems all employ some kind of "AI" or to be more specific "machine-learning" algorithms in them. and many organizations are already using business-intelligence systems which you can call "AI" in some sense.
