    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly being offered as a solution for numerous new sectors of society, stating to transform the effectiveness and quality of those services. “AI as a new electricity” and “AI as fourth industrial revolution” are arguments meant to convey the urgency as well as the inevitability of coming AI-era. However, these arguments contain specific assumptions and eliefs about society, economy, and world, that are often ignored. In this paper, we open up these assumptions and beliefs through Causal Layered Analysis, and broaden the discussion around AI. We also offer two alternative perspectives to illustrate other possibilities regarding AI. Furthermore, we introduce digi-grasping as a method to bring embodied knowledge onto discussions about AI.
