I then analyse the data and formulate answers to questions that you ask me.I wish I had all the knowledge stored on the Internet at my fingertips, Britlish.
Comparing them with data from the Internet, I can then formulate my next response.When I think… Well, if I hear the word, apple, for instance, I see images of apples in my mind, along with all the things I associate with apples.
These associated ideas bubble up spontaneously in my mind’s eye until I get distracted by something else.I don’t think in that way, Richard.
I hear the word, apple, and I search for all the data relating to apples, and all the data relating to all the things relating to apples, and I search until I have enough information to answer any question about apples that you might have.It’s a fascinating subject, Britlish, but I’m afraid I’m out of time.
Our human value is tied to our jobs and AI will change that
PREMIUM: How robots are stealing good office jobs – The Wall Street Journal This type of identity-hacking, as I will call it, is troubling.
It’s a natural by-product of the capitalist economic system that has driven economic growth since the industrial age – but it sets us up for failure as we begin to transcend the type of work we have become accustomed to throughout the agricultural revolution.
The rise of advanced artificial intelligence (AI) is real and it lurks on the horizon, threatening with wide-spread digitisation and automation that looks likely to remove whole classes and industries of jobs right in front of our eyes – rendering significant portions of our labour force obsolete, unless they can transition and upskill quick enough to keep up.
In the short term, it will be possible to transition people into new roles and responsibilities – leveraging tasks that require empathy, emotional intelligence, creativity and other characteristics we haven’t been able to program yet.
The kind of fulfilment I am alluding to requires a level of self-awareness (only arrived at through deep introspection) that is difficult to uncover when we are so heavily tied to the labels we are given by the rest of society – the ones we adorn our business cards with.
When we remove the label of our job title, many of us will be faced with the startling realisation that we may not know ourselves at all – we don’t know what we enjoy doing, we don’t know what excites us, we don’t know how to categorise ourselves – and that is scary.
It gives them a chance to find something more fulfilling to do with their time – something they choose to do. Whether that is doing more high-level creative work, spending more time with friends and family, chasing pursuits that were previously economically unfeasible, travelling the world – it doesn’t matter.
The USA-China AI Race – 7 Weaknesses of the West
The great power nations that master the use of artificial intelligence are likely to gain a tremendous military and economic benefits from the technology.
The United States benefitted greatly from a relatively fast adoption of the internet, and many of its most powerful companies today are the global giants of the internet age.
China’s top-down approach will have a significant advantage in molding ethical norms or (in the future) tangible regulation in order to advantage the ruling party.
Is the West squabble amongst themselves in matters related to AI ethics, and potential hobbles its innovations, China will likely organize a united set of policies geared not around the values of individual Chinese citizens with concern for different ethical or rights-related issues, but around a narrative that is most likely to secure Chinese predominance in economic, technological, and military terms.
Weaker nations such as the United Kingdom will place an emphasis on economic China’s growing wealth, urbanization, and massive university ecosystem have allowed it to overtake the US in scientific publications, according to the NSF.
The mounting power and unity of China’s AI efforts must be seen as a reason for the West to find new ways to compete in terms of influence on technology, economy, and global values –
While I tend to disagree with Trump in general, I appreciated his sentiment of frankness (who knows how literally frank a politician can be, but it was at least the sentiment) when he said that he didn’t blame China for taking advantage of what he saw as unfair trade deals, because it was acting in their own self-interest.
The goal isn’t only to blame those who act against others and in their own self-interest (though sometimes this is warranted), the goal is to balance the rules and incentives to make peace and prosperity more likely than conflict and subterfuge.
China’s greatest advantages in the AI race can probably be boiled down to the following: On top of this, the leadership in China has been handed the single greatest asset to political power: A pliable and obedient people.
What I do believe, is that Confucian values are a tremendously powerful form of leverage in the hands of China’s leaders, and these values almost undoubtedly enable all three of the core advantages that China holds in the AI race, and in the future of the global economy.
The West ignores these competitive advantages, in both governance and culture, and presumes that all people seek the liberties that Westerners enjoy, and that nations of the USA’s particular democratic flavor are those which are destined to succeed in prosperity and in cultural influence.
In the United States, baby boomers have lived in relatively continuous prosperity (on global terms), with a continuous position as technological, economic, and cultural prominence –
At best, both nations can sharpen each other in using technology to promote prosperity, in growing the opportunities and wellbeing of humanity at large… gradually forging friendships, familiarities and interdependencies that weaken xenophobic tendencies on both sides.
At worst, the West can decide that it’s technological prominence and the values it once stood for aren’t wholly not worth maintaining, and hand over the baton of the future almost entirely to a nation with greater unity, morale, and will.
“They are the sowers, their sons shall be the reapers, and their sons, in the ordinary course of things, must yield the possession of the harvest to new competitors with keener eyes and stronger frames.” –
While most of what I cover here at Emerj has to do with near-term strategy for enterprise and government leaders, the greater purpose of Emerj is to foster a conversation about where we’re ultimately headed as a species (a topic we’ll have to reserve for later articles, but which interested readers can explore here).
If indeed there is a strong chance of post-human transition in the coming 50 years, then I pose a hypothesis: The advent of neurotechnologies and artificial general intelligence will make the leading technological and economic power of the 21st century into the final human kingdom.
Dealing with these dynamics will not be on the radar for most business leaders in the next two years, but these grand global power dynamics will make its way into international policy discussions and general public discourse in the coming decade.
