More Than an “Efficiency” Boost: Using AI to Make Better People

Vivienne Ming

AI has a profound ability not just to improve the way we work but to fundamentally enhance human capacity. This requires moving beyond using machine learning models simply as time saving substitutes for people and designing collaborative tools that cultivate essential qualities like perspective-taking, creativity, and resilience — tools that change us even after we've powered them down. This transformative implementation of AI doesn't settle for simply making our lives easier; it actively participates in shaping individuals and societies with heightened capabilities, greater self-awareness, and a deeper sense of purpose. Dr. Ming will share stories of her work ranging from LLMs designed to generate “productive friction” to ground-breaking causal models capable of predicting postpartum depression to a “match-maker” AI that dynamically connects people in a social network to maximize collective intelligence and innovation. In every case, the goal is to move far beyond artificial intelligence and into a future of augmented intelligence.
