Il paradosso dell’automazione

Intelligenti riflessioni sull’auto che si guida da sola e altri sistemi automatici, inclusa la tragedia del Boeing Max 8.

Removing automated systems from our lives, or rejecting them altogether, is now impossible. And, overall, such systems do increase safety and productivity, but they aren’t infallible, and when they make a mistake, however rare, the repercussions can be severe. Recognizing this goes beyond providing a software update to a shoddily redesigned plane. At a time when automation is widely regarded to be stealing jobs, the paradox tells us that the role of humans has become even more critical.
