IA ouch ouch

If we spent a substantial part of our time today preparing for our holidays in May, it's a good bet that it will be different in the years to come. Thanks WHO ? Thank you AI. Ideal destination, the most competitive flight, optimal trip to the airport, adapted toiletry kit, planned activities, balanced range of local specialties history to limit its weight gain, disconnected expertly orchestrated over 72 hours to achieve the perfect balance -pro and keep its productivity while remaining attentive to the price of the kilo of beets ...

This is the future of the holidays, and not only. Thanks to AI, we also predict the disappearance of 14 to 47% of jobs according to several studies (sacred fork, strongly that these statisticians inaccurate are replaced by a few bots better cortiqué!). It's the end of failed recruitments, turnips that will become cult, faults in the referee's assessments on the field, payroll errors, fruitless blunders ...

Great. Finally free time. What for ?

Freedom, creativity, QVT?

One can legitimately ask what will be the impact of Artificial Intelligence on our daily lives. A gain of freedom? Without a doubt. But everything is story of dosage. No offense to anti-robots, we can assume that the automation of tedious tasks does not make life as insipid as a broth without salt.

But for the most pessimistic, not only are we heading straight for a generalized fading of work and leisure, but we also risk seeing a substantial slump in innovation and creativity, as irrational in our purchase would be considerably reduced - assuming for example that an application calculates our real needs in terms of clothing, we suspect that the peacock feather shorts do not reach directly the top of the basket.

Penchons-nous maintenant plus en détails sur la question du futur du travail. On peut légitimement se demander si la place de l’IA dans nos vies professionnelles ne risque pas de devenir rapidement trop intrusive. Car en effet, que devient notre libre arbitre dès lors qu’une application estime notre niveau de stress à son maximum, met soudainement notre ordinateur hors d’état de nuire et nous somme de faire une pause manu militari ? Sous prétexte de vouloir augmenter la Qualité de Vie au Travail (QVT), ne porte-t-on pas non seulement atteinte à l’autonomie de chacun, mais aussi à notre capacité de croire au potentiel de l’intelligence collective ?

Il faut sauver le geste raté

La question fondamentale à se poser serait donc la suivante : ai-je envie de partager mon bureau avec un aréopage de robots en goguette prêts à répondre à mes moindres désirs dans un ratio temps/efficacité inégalable ? Pire, ne devrais-je pas moi-même laisser la main à une machine histoire de minimiser le risque d’échec et aller gentiment bouturer mes bégonias ? La réponse est helvète, à savoir : oui et non.

Oui, car il serait idiot de rejeter en bloc de formidables avancées technologiques susceptibles de rendre nos vies plus agréables et d’amoindrir nos angoisses face aux nombreux choix cornéliens qui nous assaillent quotidiennement.

Non, car nous courons aussi le risque de supprimer l’inattendu, la surprise, la découverte, la douleur constructive d’un beau geste raté…

The solution remains a matter of common sense. It would be simply accepting to lose the game of Go , to let the robot write our order, to ask the algorithm to make us a shortlist, but to categorically refuse to know in advance the date and the time of his death or being denounced to his insurance for having a little forced on peanuts.

Who tells you that we are not already on vacation and that the author of this article is an android? The bets are open.
