JD.com to be 100% run by AI and robots?
Forbes reported that JD.com founder (Richard Liu) expressed a hope that at some stage his company will be run without human beings, 100% operated by AI and robots. Forbes hailed this as an audacious goal, which based on our research, makes little sense. Organisations continually execute algorithms - most of them are computational and as such can be automated, but quite a few are heuristic and rely on decisions. Decisions require human judgment, using incomplete information and intelligence. In our earlier writings, we pointed out that while increasingly smart, animated matter will continue to proliferate, machines with real human-like intelligence make little commercial sense. The so-called "Artificial Intelligence" actually means the mere ‘Appearance of Intelligence’. It's safe to say that humans won’t be retiring any time soon.
