This is an out-of-date question.
Man vs Machine was a famous question when Kasparov was defeated in a chess game by IBM-developed Deep Blue. However, this question is outdated as a book I read today said that, rather than a match between Man and Machine, it is a match between two roles of Man: a man as performer – who has ego and emotion – and a man as a toolmaker – who builds a machine without ego or emotion, but yet can only think in orderly fashion.
I totally agree. It shouldn’t be man versus machine in today’s world, but rather man and machine. Afterwards, a machine should be a continuously-refined tool by man. The key question is how to develop a machine so that it imitative human thought process. To take the argument further, it is about how to handle uncertainty or even seemly disorder information and generate actions or actionable insights.
