The Problem With Artificial Intelligence Might Be Humans

Not too long ago, A.I. was considered the stuff of sci-fi movies.

Today, artificial intelligence is a real and growing part of our economy, but there’s a persistent fear in the job market that the advancements in A.I. will take jobs away from people.

Well, it turns out that workers shouldn’t throw in the towel just yet.

A new report out from the Chicago Booth Review from the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business suggest that no matter how advanced our robot overlords become, the biggest problem with A.I. is… well… us.

Morning Shift sits down with Hal Weitzman, editor in chief of the Chicago Booth Review from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, for more on the report’s findings.
