The Dilemma of Innovation–Artificial Intelligence Trade-Off
AbstractDialectic that confronts pros and cons is a long-time methodology pursued for a better understanding of old and new problems. It was already practiced in ancient Greece to help get insight into the current and expected issues. In this paper we make use of this methodology to discuss some relationships binding innovation, technology and artificial intelligence, and culture. The main message of this paper is that even sophisticated technologies and advanced innovations such as for example those that are equipped with artificial intelligence are not a panacea for the increasing contradictions, problems and challenges contemporary societies are facing. Often we have to deal with a trade-off dilemma that confronts the gains provided by innovations with downsides they may cause. We claim that in order to resolve such dilemmas and to work out plausible solutions one has to refer to culture sensu largo.
