Aul, the synergy between humans and AI, exploits the positive aspects of human and Al-generated reasoning. It is designed to play an assistive role to enhance human intelligence and to improve the quality and efficiency of workers. It is becoming an effective weapon to address the current blemishes of medicine which include poor predictive power, therapeutic errors, and inefficient hospital workflows [15]. Aul tools are used to make smarter decisions and save time on repetitive tasks. Aul is better suited for organizations than AI as it has a quicker return on investment and better utilizes the assets already in place. There are opportunities that will arise from "augmented" workplaces and life in general - it has the potential to transform social services organizations from case management to care management. Any field that requires both humans and technology will definitely be changed by Aul.

The idea that intelligence can be automated, replacing millions of humans in highly repeatable tasks, has received a great deal of attention. For the doomsayers, Al-augmented workplace implies an impending mass unemployment. The fears are essentially groundless. It appears that jobs will disappear rather than being automated. If machines can replace humans, we should be free to do what humans do best - create. For more information on Aul, one should consult the book in [16].


Intelligent machines (or computers) are efficient in numerical computation, information retrieval, and statistical reasoning, and have almost unlimited storage. They can see, hear, and speak multiple languages. They have become the intimate companions of humans; they are profoundly changing our lives and shaping the future. We are in an era where machines and humans working together will be pervasive and efficient.

The human brain is an extremely complex, advanced processing unit that can solve problems which computers simply cannot. No matter how intelligent machines may be, they are cannot completely replace humans. So, there is nothing to fear. We only need to prepare. In the foreseeable future, AI will be augmenting our capabilities, allowing us to do more in less time. Rather than focusing on AI, we should consider the possibilities of how businesses can take advantage of Aul.
