Symbiotic AI versus Parasitic AI

In my past life as a professor in Arizona State University I used to run a lab called Human Machine Symbiosis Lab. The idea was to develop technologies that don’t replace humans or their intellectual capacity but enhances it. AI I believe should nudge humans to make right decisions and not replace them. All this talk of AI replacing humans makes me think how relevant the term symbiosis is and why we should focus on technologies meant to make humans and machine symbiotic rather than parasitic. We under-anticipate what social unrest such parasitism can cause.
