Algorithms have emerged as the key culprits contributing to the misery currently reported at workplaces and other organizations. The primary complaint is that this technology fosters the mistreatment of persons. To remedy this situation, critics are arguing that human-centric AI is needed. Overlooked in this discussion is a consideration vital to any corrective, that is, the alleged artificial nature of AI. The point of this talk is to examine the philosophy that supports this portrayal of AI and derails attempts to humanize algorithms.
