Many tell us what to think. I ask my readers to be skeptical. Question me and others.

AI – a wedge with a wedge

Poles have a better version of the “fight fire with fire” adage. It is “knock out a jammed wedge with another wedge.” Poles shortened it to “klina klinem,” “a wedge with a wedge” in English. I prefer the Polish version because it emphasizes work, not fighting. The fight is about the destruction of the adversary. Work is about getting better results faster and cheaper. Hence, “a wedge with a wedge” better describes the approach we should take with AI. We should use it as a wedge to deal with problems we did not resolve with human intelligence, to detect AI’s “hallucinations,” and stop villains. It means those deploying AI with a dose of their human intelligence will benefit from AI more than others. What is wrong with that?
