AI won’t replace humans, just help them

Oct. 26, 2023
While AI can be of great use to humans, overreliance on it might hinder the development of in-depth knowledge and creative problem-solving skills within the engineering field

In the field of industrial control system integration, the potential applications of artificial intelligence (AI), particularly ChatGPT, range far and wide.

Huffman Engineering has been experimenting with AI to identify practical use cases that can enhance work efficiency. One promising application is the use of ChatGPT to generate outlines for designing complex industrial systems. This AI-generated outline provides a structured and comprehensive guide for engineers, especially newcomers, to follow when designing systems, covering crucial aspects like system requirements, pump selection, control systems, redundancy, safety measures, monitoring, installation and maintenance. Such AI-driven support can streamline the design process, making it more efficient and less prone to errors.

However, while AI has its benefits, engineers should maintain a balance between relying on AI-generated directives and nurturing their own industry expertise. Overreliance on AI may hinder the development of in-depth knowledge and creative problem-solving skills within the engineering field. Engineers must exercise caution to avoid losing their capacity for critical thinking and problem-solving, as technology should be a tool to enhance their abilities, not a shortcut that substitutes their intelligence.
