In an era of an unprecedented technological innovation, we are facing a crucial question: what should be the role of human intelligence in the age of artificial intelligence (AI)? As AI rapidly evolves and becomes increasingly integrated into our daily lives, it is essential to recognize the indispensable value of human intelligence while understanding its limitations.

Artificial intelligence has revolutionized process design and optimization in ways that once seemed like science fiction. Its ability to analyze massive amounts of data, detect patterns and provide rapid solutions is undoubtedly an incredible asset. However, despite all its advances, AI is still limited by its programming and lack of understanding of human context.

When human intelligence is misused, with bad faith and in a specious manner, it can cause significant harm. Under such circumstances, it might seem tempting to rely completely on AI, hoping that, devoid of human emotions and biases, it can make more rational and sensible decisions, certainly thinking before acting.

However, AI, although it has already reached advanced levels, is still limited by its initial programming and the information provided by its human creators. Without human guidance, it could easily perpetuate and amplify the errors in its training data or algorithms.

Instead of seeing AI as a perfect and fast surrogate for human intelligence, we should therefore see it as a partner, collaborative and functional. AI can help us identify patterns, suggest solutions and automate processes. But it is our intelligence that must remain at the helm; ensuring that final decisions are made with wisdom, responsibility, creativity and that visionary ability that still belongs only to humans.
