The article explores the alternative to artificial intelligence (AI) as a technology which is increasingly being used in many areas, such as healthcare, education, finance, and many more. The article suggests that an alternative to AI could be the use of augmented intelligence, which is the combination of AI and human intelligence. Augmented intelligence utilizes AI to enhance and improve human decision-making, rather than replacing it. The article also considers the potential of distributed intelligence, which is a decentralized approach to AI that uses a network of interconnected technologies. It is argued that distributed intelligence systems may be more resilient, secure and ethical than centralized AI solutions. Finally, the article concludes that while AI will remain an important technology, an alternative to artificial intelligence should be explored in order to maximize its potential.
