  1. I am a huge fan of Kahneman. But I don’t agree that a robot will be wiser than a human. Yes, a robot will have more breadth of information, but it will never be able to be humane, when using such wisdom.

    Last week, in Vegas, the robot would have decided that we cannot carry bleeding passengers in a taxi or the back of a truck (because we don’t have seatbelts). We haven’t had such incident in the past so the robot would not have known how to make that decision. Humans said yes and helped save lives.
