Artificial Intelligence – a beginning rather than an end
There was a time when our understanding of artificial intelligence (AI) was solely informed by science fiction. From dystopian futures to sci-fi adventures, we couldn’t have foreseen how useful AI would become to us. While the modern day is free of deadly androids and sentient machinery, the potential of self-learning algorithms to improve society and daily life is only just beginning to be unleashed.
Certain cultural narratives position AI as the enemy of true creativity, yet – far from being the baddie – AI provides an unparalleled opportunity for innovative thinking (when used correctly, that is!). Keep reading to find out why artificial intelligence is the beginning rather than the end for innovative thought.
Understanding the nature of creativity
Before we get into how AI can improve creative thought, we have to first understand what exactly creativity is itself. When you have a novel idea or productive brainstorming session it may feel like you’ve pulled new ideas out of thin air. In actual fact, creative ideas aren’t entirely new, instead they are the fusing or dissection of pre-existing ideas and concepts, broken down and re-stitched together to make new ones. The phrase “food for thought” isn’t just a pithy saying, but an actual reality – with more information and interconnected themes to work with, we can literally come up with more ideas. And that’s where AI can change the game.
Harmonizing with the human mind
One of the many misconceptions about AI is that it cannot truly harmonize with humanity. People think that using AI is a shortcut, which results in compromised quality and – in the process – actually replaces the human mind with its own, more rigid version of intelligence. This perception is far from the truth. Just in the same we might draw inspiration from nature, the fact that AI isn’t “sentient” doesn’t mean it’s clumsy or unhelpful in getting new ideas off the ground. Quite the contrary. AI is an extension of our natural ability, allowing us to hone in on particular ideas and work better. After all, you wouldn’t call an artist a fraud for using his paint brushes rather than his fingers. Similarly, AI is a tool – not a replacement – for the brain, enhancing what already exists within you.
Rocket fuel to future innovations
Ayoa has built the world’s first AI-powered mind mapping app. When we think of AI as a means to an end, rather than an end in itself – it quickly becomes apparent the incredible things that can be achieved. Even without AI, mind mapping is a powerful tool which naturally unlocks the power of human imagination and innovation. When paired with AI, it superpowers further innovations which would have been decades off without the rocket fuel of AI helping human ideas go better and further. Clicking on branches in Ayoa Ultimate’s GenerateIdeas.ai instantly creates off-shoot ideas, questions and explanations. With self-learning tech, and 175 billion parameters amassed from 10% of the internet, these are not half-baked suggestions, but genuine and fruitful connections making your ideas better than they’ve ever been before. Making AI the starting point in a journey to more innovations than could have been conceived without it.
The proof is in the pudding
But don’t take our word for it. AI has been revolutionizing industries and improving modern society for many years now. From improving the healthcare sector with enhanced disease diagnosis and much faster data scrubbing right through to optimised traffic signals, AI is already making our world a better place. Ayoa’s AI-powered mind mapping, like these other solutions, is just another way of enhancing existing processes – taking the natural human inclination to innovate and invent, and giving it more juice and power so that even more ideas come out of the process. As we all know, ideas are just the start of the journey towards new creations and systems. That’s exactly why AI is the beginning of humanity’s innovations – not the end.
