Artificial Intelligence and the Role of the Salesperson 

 #fintech @lexology #AI

  • It is not accurate enough to provide a consistent level of service, unlike a human being.
  • Recognising the fact, Fast Company believes that businesses can capitalise on it to retain sales staff and provide a level of service that AI cannot.
  • For now, AI can take on the burden of simple sales and service questions, but there is a long way to go before it replaces salespeople.
  • The example of DigitalGenius demonstrates nicely how useful AI can be to retail and customer service, but there are still plenty of barriers to replacing human salespeople.
  • The interactions we have with AI are still rather different to those we have with human beings.

Google Deep Learning Founder says Tesla’s Autopilot system is ‘irresponsible’

Google Deep Learning Founder says Tesla’s Autopilot system is ‘irresponsible’

  • Tesla will prioritize Model 3 reservations for current Tesla owners over non-owners
  • It doesn’t seem fair for Ng to ask not to ship the Autopilot, which is extremely useful to tens of thousands of Tesla owners, just because a few of them are abusing the system.
  • Following a few recent accidents in the past weeks, Tesla received some criticisms over its approach on releasing semi-autonomous features.
  • One of the most severe criticism came from renowned scientist Andrew NG who said that it was plainly “irresponsible” for Tesla to ship the Autopilot.
  • It’s still difficult to agree with Ng’s claim of creating a “false sense of safety” when Tesla asks drivers to “prepare to take immediate corrective action” and even recommend to keep their hands on the wheel – it doesn’t do much to create a sense of safety.
