The Human Edge


What is it to be human?

And what kinds of decisions do humans make better than algorithms?

Algorithms can learn, apply complicated frameworks and sift through vast amounts of data.

But what about complex situations where there is no obvious precedent or apparent logic for finding the answer? Can an algorithm make decisions that inspire, resolve moral conundrums and create a new future? And can it decide on a path forward that fills people with a sense of optimism for the future and commitment in the present?

No, they can’t. But humans can. In fact, this is the essence – and best – of humanity.
