Title: Learning from Machines: Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) Systems as Scaffolding for Human Learning
Abstract: Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the most rapidly advancing transformative technologies today. Contemporary AI systems can not only outperform humans in certain tasks, but they are also now able to do things humans cannot—from beating our World Champions at Go (Silver et al., 2016) to solving 50-year-old grand challenges in biology (Senior et al., 2020; Callaway, 2020). In this paper I will investigate some historical and philosophical methods for understanding and learning from our machine counterparts, with the goal of using their achievements to advance our own epistemic ends.
