Reading corner – I, Human by Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic
In an era dominated by rapid technological advancements, the power of Artificial Intelligence has become a topic of growing concern. People worry about AI’s potential to reshape society, influence decision-making processes, and even replace human roles.
Nevertheless, despite these worries, there is a tendency to overlook the pervasive influence of AI in our daily lives. In “I, Human,” psychologist Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic highlights the impact of AI on our behaviors, revealing how it can make us distracted, selfish, biased, narcissistic, entitled, predictable, and impatient.
By raising awareness of the unintended consequences AI has in our behavior, the author urges readers to take control of their relationship with AI, practicing self-awareness, mindfulness, and critical thinking. By fostering empathy, humility, and self-control, we can navigate the AI era and ensure that technology enhances rather than diminishes our humanity.
In addition to its insights, “I, Human” offers an interactive element that enhances readers’ engagement with the book. At the end of each chapter, you will find a test designed to assess how AI may be influencing your behavior as a human. These tests serve as valuable tools for self-reflection and self-awareness, enabling readers to gain insights into their own tendencies and behaviors in the context of AI-driven technology.
“I, Human” serves as a timely call to action, inviting us to examine our daily interactions with AI and make conscious choices to preserve our essential human qualities.
