Editor's note: South Korean Go grandmaster Lee Se-dol on Tuesday lost the final round of the chess-like game—and the match—to AlphaGo, an artificial-intelligence (AI) machine. While researchers are delighted that it proves AI really exists and can be used in future, many Internet users said AlphaGo’s success shows that human advantage is eroding fast. Will AI make humans redundant? Forum readers share their opinions.|
AI will not fully replace humans. AI may take away some human jobs. For example, robots are already making our cars, vacuuming our floors and serving our food. However, there will always be jobs that only humans can do; artificial intelligence has its limits. It will never completely replace the need for qualified humans in the labor force. Furthermore, humans will always be needed to design the new artificial intelligence.
