Is AI taking over our jobs? Will AI replace the need for humans? No. Think of the rise of AI as a way of enhancing us, not replacing us. Colin Priest, VP of AI Strategy at DataRobot, explains when to use AI to complete a task and when to turn to a human. 

It’s about focusing on the strengths of each side. Computers are good at things like repetitive tasks, parallel processing, and data manipulation. Humans are good at things like communication, creativity, and empathy. All of these skills combined are important when making decisions that affect both organizations and people. 

“The successful AI-driven enterprise is going to be a combination of humans being human and computers being computers.” — Colin Priest
