Course Wrap-up

​What's still hard for AI by Kai-Fu Lee:

  1. AI cannot create, conceptualize, or manage complex strategic planning.

  2. AI cannot accomplish complex work that requires precise hand-eye coordination.

  3. AI cannot deal with unknown and unstructured spaces, especially ones that it hasn’t observed.

  4. AI cannot, unlike humans, feel or interact with empathy and compassion; therefore, it is unlikely that humans would opt for interacting with an apathetic robot for traditional communication services.
