Human AI interaction will throw up some curious questions.

We know that chess algorithms these days can beat human players every day and twice on Sundays. Big deal. We can still hold chess competitions that are restricted to humans. After all, allowing AI entrants would make them no fun for anyone. Unfortunately, it is not that simple. It turns out that human players are training with algorithms and it’s changing their style of play. It’s making it less risky and less creative. So, it’s making for human games that are less fun to watch. This is the law of unintended consequences at work. The future of work in the face of the potential for artificial general intelligence remains controversial. Many economists retort that there will always be new jobs for humans, just different types of jobs. If AGI can do everything better than humans, that line looks unconvincing. But at least we can hold humans-only competitions and tournaments. So, the worlds of sport and games look safe, don’t they? Hmmm; not without some tinkering with the rules.
