The Main Course: 5 Things That Made Me Think This Week
Humans Imitating AI: the MIT "Clocking In" newsletter (a free daily newsletter covering technology and automation in the workplace - worth signing-up for!) reports that companies working to develop AI solutions are, in some instances, cutting corners by hiring *humans* to pretend to be computers until the companies can figure out how to deliver the AI product they are claiming to possess. For example, Expensify, the expense reporting app posted images of receipts on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk, and paid gig workers to manually write up the data contained on the images. Other companies have enlisted people to pretend to be chatbots. What a world.
