Keeping someone “in the loop” means keeping them informed or involved. The term human-in-the-loop (HITL) means involving humans in processes that leverage innovations like AI, robotics and machine-learning algorithms. HITL ensures that a process isn’t run automatically without human supervision. On the surface, this might seem like distrust of automation and AI, but it’s a layer of precaution used to avoid mistakes or misses that AI and robots can easily make. More importantly, HITL will enhance these processes.
