“Man-computer symbiosis is probably not the ultimate paradigm for complex technological systems.” The famous computer pioneer believed that it was “entirely possible” that “electronic or chemical machines” would eventually outdo the human brain. Meanwhile, he contended that there would be significant advances as men and computers worked together in “intimate association.”

Even today, some experts still hold to the promise of productivity with man-computer symbiosis. Behavioral economist and data scientist Dr. Colin W.P. Lewis writes in his blog that “Human-computer symbiosis, not artificial intelligence, will spur new jobs.” He quotes from Samuel Butler’s 1863 article “Darwin Among the Machines,” in which Butler states that “the time will come when the machines will hold the real supremacy over the world and its inhabitants.” Meanwhile, assistant devices like Google Now and Apple’s Siri are proof that we are continuing to move in the direction of man-computer symbiosis.
