Artificial intelligence is becoming good at many “human” jobs—diagnosing disease, translating languages, providing customer service—and it is improving fast. This is raising reasonable fears that AI will ultimately replace human workers throughout the economy. But that is not the inevitable, or even most likely, outcome. Never have digital tools been so responsive to us, nor we to our tools. While AI will radically alter how work gets done and who does it, the technology’s larger impact will be in complementing and augmenting human capabilities, not replacing them.
Human-machine communication reflects the interaction of people with a technical system. Either man uses the technical possibilities provided by a system to solve his tasks. Or it is about the way in which man gives his instructions to a machine so that they can then be executed by the machine.The exchange of information between machines and people is becoming more and more essential to keep up with today's competition. Digitalization has succeeded in networking machines so that they can exchange information and control each other. Production and manufacturing processes thus increase their effectiveness enormously.
