Persuasive Intent

Instead of thinking about machine intelligence in terms of humans vs machines, we should consider the system that integrates humans and machines – not artificial intelligence but extended intelligence. Instead of trying to control or design or even understand systems, it is more important to design systems that participate as responsible, aware and robust elements of even more complex systems.

We must question and adapt our own purpose and sensibilities as observers and designers within systems for a much more humble approach: humility over control.
