The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become increasingly common in our daily lives in the most diverse ways, whether to log in to a social network through facial recognition, for companies to optimize service, or even for autonomous cars. However, although AI appears to be efficient, the technology has advanced to a new version: humanized Artificial Intelligence.

 

Data scientist Wagner Vargas explains that this is not exactly something new, as the perception of the need to humanize Artificial Intelligence has been going on since the 1950s, but the technological evolution of the last few years has allowed for great improvements. 

 

“What happens now is that with the increased computational capacity and the amount of data available at a more accessible cost, it is possible to solve challenges that were previously unimaginable. An interesting example is the operation of Google Translate, which for some time now, thanks to the work of ‘machine learning’  has no longer done literal translations, but translates based on expressions ”, he explained.

 

One of the main differences of humanized AI in relation to Artificial Intelligence is that it presents a level so complex and advanced that it even performs some tasks similarly to a human being. “We can see the service chats with Camila, from Amazon, or Bia, from Bradesco, who are able to interact with the user as if they were people. It is even possible to confuse them as such,” Vargas said.

 

The deeper the learning about the subject gets, the more the developers focus on having tasks performed by humans replaced by Artificial Intelligence, with more focus and precision.

 

Humanized AI can be applied in the most diverse sectors, and is usually the solution for those looking to increase productivity through the automation of varied functions.

 

“Today we have people using Artificial Intelligence and algorithms in a number of areas. In health, for example, it is possible to anticipate problems in childbirth. In e-commerce, it is possible to deliver more personalized services. It goes from public policies to the commercial area, or even the security area, to recognize image patterns. The possibilities are endless.”

 

The complexity of humanized AI is so great that even professionals with experience in data analysis are facing new challenges. “The decisions made by an algorithm are not always easily interpreted. This is natural, the human being also makes decisions that cannot always be explained. It is interesting because it all brings a series of standards that help to embrace different areas and sectors ”, he clarified.

 

The market tends to gain from the transformations and new possibilities proposed by humanized Artificial Intelligence. Wagner points out that the expansion of technology will bring a new market perspective, requiring more specialized professionals, with new types of qualifications and profiles.

 

“I see this as an increase in productivity. It is a gain in general, as human beings will be able to focus more on activities focused on planning, since the algorithm does not create anything from scratch. There are countless transformations, and these technological changes tend to become social transformations. It is possible to expand and, in terms of resources, it is possible to achieve lower costs. And that, in terms of opportunities and social inclusion, can have an interesting impact as well ”.

 

The development of society and the market tends to grow significantly with technological advances, principally in relation to the accumulation of capital and the reduction of poverty. The country’s economic scenario can also be directly impacted and, with this, the chances of progress can increase considerably.
