Hrishi Mittal Great questions. I am skeptical as well. Since machine learning is not self-aware, it cannot achieve the level of creativity, perception, and agility necessary to innovate.
Innovation equals business growth and success. It is essential to economic progress. Innovation is the way in which we capture, create, and monetize new opportunities like social media (no robot could have made that network happen), streaming services, the sharing economy (Airbnb, Lyft, Uber), and self-driving cars. Innovation takes iterations, and iterations are inherently messy. Such “human messiness” won’t ever be automated.
