Academics and policymakers alike are concerned with the potential impact and repercussions of artificial intelligence on our lives and the world we live in. In the light of the inherent chasm between human intelligence and artificial intelligence logics, the inevitable need to integrate human and artificial intelligence into symbiotic forms is particularly challenging to Information Systems researchers and designers. This panel aims to explore meaningful research directions on human-artificial intelligence, which could lead to a better understanding of its impact and better designs. Building on their expertise in design, HCI, AI, and generative systems, the panelists will explore the following challenges:
• What is unique in the combination of human and artificial intelligence compared with systems that are solely based on one or the other?
• Can we and should we insist on a similar range of considerations when studying and designing systems based on human-augmented artificial intelligence as we do when studying and designing systems based solely on human intelligence?
• Can performance improvements expected of human-artificial intelligence, compared with AI, be effectively studied independently of considerations such as control and trust? The panel will seek to evoke provocative ideas and generative thinking that can initiate research on the relationship between human and artificial intelligence in the IS discipline and perhaps also contribute to the general discourse thereof.
