Social AI and Extended Intelligence

Groups

There is a deep fear that human jobs will be replaced by AI. Rather than racing against the machines, our aim is to show that a human-AI combination will perform better than humans and AI working alone. Although no man is better than a machine for some tasks, "no machine is better than a man with a machine" (Paul Tudor Jones) . Thus, by building "bots" that are compatible with human behavior, and specifically leverage the manner in which humans use social information, we have been able to build bots that extend human intelligence capabilities. In a large-scale financial trading experiment, we have shown that groups of humans and "socially compatible" AI bots can successfully incorporate human intuition into their decisions and consequently not only do better than humans alone, but also do better than similar AI bots that use only objective information.
