In this episode, Byron discusses leaving decision-making to AI.
Now that we have GPS everywhere, I really don’t know the way around town the way I did, say, 20 years ago. I just turn when it says to turn. And you know, similarly, I use a calculator, but I never, ever check its math on paper to make sure that it did the problem right. I don’t memorize phone numbers anymore, and nor do I doubt that my phone is going to do a bad job at remembering numbers. In the age of artificial intelligence, will we stop making decisions, will we stop thinking, and if so, what are the unintended consequences of that?
