Have we got the acronym AI wrong? 


Is the term artificial intelligence (AI) the right term? 

If you think about it, what is artificial about the intelligence created by machines?  

Using cognitive technology or machine learning to create insights that seem to be pretty real to me. 

The term artificial obviously refers to non- human intelligence; but again I believe this is taking the wrong position. 

It is referring to a world of ‘man against machine’. We should be thinking of ‘man with machine’ and the huge opportunity that human intellect and creativity and machine intelligence can bring together. 

Surely the right term for AI is augmented intelligence – and the thoughts of how we can harness all for a much better world.
