Dr Rikke Duus discusses the dangers of intelligent data

“…we are heading towards a future where Homo sapiens will lack the cognitive ability to think for itself, and we will have surrendered to the machines we once built” so writes Dr Rikke Duus (Senior Teaching Fellow) in her article on the dangers of intelligent data, as published in The Converstation last week. Decisions, Rikke argues, although at times perhaps overwhelming, are vital to what it means to be human and when we outsource our daily dilemmas to smart technology, we put ourselves at risk of losing gut instinct as well as the ability to think creatively, and most importantly autonomously.
