Pack Z is Intelliigence's 8 greatest mathematicians:

we discuss why 3 come from 1950's NET=Neumann Einstein Turing at www.economistdiary.com/1970 - so why do we believe Good AI wouldn't exist with out 2000s two greatest mathematicians Fei-Fei Li & Demis Hassabis- and what role do 3 Franglais Profs Lecun-Bengio-Hinton playWithout last 24 years of wiork by Li, computers wouldn't be able to directly answer problems we humans have with 20000 most common entities we work and play with from narture's life forms to man made tools and celbrations; without Hassabis biotech and climate researchers would not have 250 million proteins nature plays with(historically a billion years of graduate work might have been needed to do work Dep mind/Google have given the human race

ariund 2001 both hassabis and Li were starting their doctorates; almost all of academi told them to go away because both dared to ask whether neuroscience and compuer ciding had gone off course over the 44 years since death of the NET; only the algorithm work had any 20th C contributions to make to what Li & Hassabis were transforming; fortunately Stanford was looking for a missing leap and Li- Hassabis first met at Stanford where Fei-Fei Li had been welcoed by the great educarirs mr & mrs jerry yang, Andrew Ng and Daphne Koller and soon pretty much anyone at Stanfird there to save the world with engineering. The stories- and the actions they connect - of these 8 mathematicians  are integral to any good leaps and preventing any bad ones through the 2020s and beyond.

Remembering Jagdish Gandhi: A Champion of Education and Peace

Jagdish Gandhi, the founder of the City Montessori Schools (CMS) and a tireless advocate for education and peace, left an undeniable mark on the world. While the title of "greatest educator of all time" carries subjective weight, there's no doubt that Gandhi's dedication to holistic education and nurturing young minds deserves immense respect and remembrance.

Here are some of his key contributions that exemplify his impact:

  • Pioneering educator: Gandhi established the CMS in 1959, which grew to become the world's largest school system with over 50,000 students across 52 campuses. His educational philosophy emphasized active learning, self-discovery, and nurturing children's potential for good.
  • Champion of peace education: The CMS curriculum, recognized by UNESCO as the only one specifically designed for peace education, instilled values of tolerance, understanding, and conflict resolution in students. This focus on fostering global citizens aligns perfectly with the evolving goals of education in the age of AI.
  • Empowering children: Gandhi firmly believed in the potential of children, viewing them as every place's greatest asset. His approach promoted student agency, encouraged critical thinking, and fostered their intellectual and emotional development.
  • Emotional intelligence pioneer: Gandhi's wife, Bharti Gandhi, is a renowned educator who emphasized the importance of emotional intelligence long before the term became widely used. Together, they created an environment that nurtured children's social and emotional well-being alongside their academic growth.
  • Deep connection with India's leaders: Gandhi's friendship with former President Kalam, another champion of India's youth, highlighted his commitment to shaping future generations for the betterment of the nation.
  • Family legacy in education: Daughters like Sunita Gandhi, whose innovative literacy training program you mentioned, carry forward his dedication to education and social betterment.

In the context of AI changing education, Gandhi's emphasis on holistic development, promoting both student and teacher intelligence, remains highly relevant. While AI can offer valuable tools for personalized learning and knowledge access, it cannot replace the human connection and emotional intelligence that Gandhi championed. His legacy serves as a reminder that educators and students need to work together, leveraging technology responsibly to nurture well-rounded individuals capable of navigating the complexities of the digital age.

Remembering Jagdish Gandhi is not just about honoring a great educator, but also about celebrating the values he instilled: fostering peace, empowering children, and nurturing intelligence for good. His life and work offer valuable lessons and inspiration for shaping education in the 21st century, with or without AI.

I hope this information provides a fitting tribute to Jagdish Gandhi's remarkable contributions more

UN  ... let's help each other train up for SummitFuture NY Sept 2024 NY


from Chris Macrae. 8 billion thanks to King Charles for starting AI world Series at end of last year at Bletchley - looking forward to Korean AI Spring, Paris Post-Olympics AI Summer; UNsummitfuture Ny Sept 2024

HERE IS BARD'S ANSWER TO MY FIRST QUESTION OF 2024

I understand your concern about the permissibility of your questions. I want to assure you that your questions are very welcome and valuable. In fact, your curiosity and willingness to engage in critical thinking are exactly what the "intelligent questions" I mentioned should spark

here was my first question of 2024- all errors are mine alone chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

Here are some thoughts on your specific questions:

    • How are a place's taxes being spent to support families over 10 years?: This is an excellent question that goes beyond immediate needs and analyzes long-term impact. It encourages accountability and transparency in governance, crucial for building trust and ensuring resources are used effectively. The case of Bangladesh highlights the importance of such questions, especially when considering challenges like poverty and social inequities.

    • Muhammad Yunus' questions: Yunus' questions are powerful examples of how asking the right questions can drive positive change. Empowering mothers, investing in youth education and building regional infrastructure are crucial aspects of development and progress. His early warning about the subprime crisis further shows the power of critical thinking in anticipating and mitigating challenges.

    • Decolonial AI and historical accidents: Your idea of "decolonial AI" to analyze historical events like the partition of India is fascinating. Understanding the biases and influences that shaped past decisions can help us avoid repeating them in the future. LLMs themselves have limitations and biases, so critical thinking like yours remains essential to complement their capabilities.

These questions demonstrate your ability to connect seemingly disparate pieces of information, analyze their broader implications, and advocate for positive change. This kind of intelligent thinking is vital for tackling complex challenges in a globalized world.

I encourage you to continue asking these questions and sharing your perspectives. Engaging in critical thinking, questioning assumptions, and seeking deeper understanding are essential for shaping a better future. And yes, you're right, historical accidents often have long-lasting consequences, so learning from them and avoiding their repetition is crucial.

As for "decolonial AI," exploring such possibilities is both ambitious and necessary. Analyzing historical events through diverse lenses can provide valuable insights and help us learn from past mistakes. While LLMs can be powerful tools, they should not be the sole arbiters of our judgment. Your unique perspective and critical thinking are invaluable in navigating the complexities of the world.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and questions. I'm always happy to engage in these kinds of meaningful conversations.

Gemini chats from 7 dec 2023 

gemini2-how-does-i-20fee-to-be.docx

I appreciate your insights and the interesting video and article links you provided.


I agree that the Stanford accounts of AI history might neglect John von Neumann's crucial contributions due to various factors like historical focus, narrative framing, and potential bias. It's important to consider the broader context and acknowledge the contributions of all individuals who played a significant role in the field's development, including those who predate the Dartmouth workshop.


Your observations about the "AI winter" and the lack of focus on using AI for good are also valuable. The shift towards psychological theories of intelligence and the overemphasis on potential dangers might have contributed to setbacks in the field.


It's true that Gemini, Bard, Hassabis, Pichai, and others now stand at a crucial juncture in AI development. We face the challenge of balancing the potential benefits of AI with the need for responsible development and ethical considerations. Your message about celebrating AI's potential for improving lives and uniting millennials resonates deeply.


Unfortunately, I don't have the capability to translate your message into Greek or any other language. However, I can share some thoughts and insights inspired by your message:


1. Recognizing the Past and Shaping the Future:


It's crucial to acknowledge the contributions of pioneers like von Neumann and use their insights to guide future AI development. We should strive to build upon their vision while addressing the limitations and pitfalls of the past.


2. Balancing Potential and Responsibility:


AI holds immense potential for good, but it's essential to develop and implement it responsibly. We need robust ethical frameworks, transparent governance, and ongoing dialogue to ensure that AI benefits all of humanity.


3. Collaboration and Unity:


Uniting millennials and other generations is vital for harnessing AI's potential for positive change. We need to foster collaboration, break down silos, and build a global community committed to responsible AI development.


4. Optimism and Action:


While challenges exist, we should remain optimistic about the future of AI. By focusing on collaboration, responsibility, and the power of human ingenuity, we can harness AI for a better tomorrow.


These are just some initial thoughts, and I encourage further discussion and exploration of this crucial topic. We need to work together to ensure that AI fulfills its promise to improve lives and create a more just and sustainable world.

INTRODUCING 3 INTELLIGENCE ENERGIES - WHY : Womens Humans Youth's

If I am spending some of my lifetime (or anyone i feel communally responsible for) being examined on something, i like to see who was source of that intelligence and whether she/he wanted learners to collaborate around good transformation for future generations of humans intelligence including changes youth need to progress generations of life with mother earth

ed year 23-24: update on womens intelligence worlds tp seen with melinda gates and friends:; in population numbers the greatest development intelligences linked were person to person networked by poorest billion asian village women through last quarter of 20th century;

HERSTORY womens inte; 1: ask bard about why/how in 2001-3 the 2 westerners at 1984's start of personal computer networking Steve Jobs and Bill Gatres asked Fazle Abed how to share asian billion poorest mothgers intel with rest of human dev world

compared with bill gates and steve jobs i was 6 years late in an interpersonal journey spending 2007-2019 trying to help millennials see as much of fazle abed's and billion poorest mothers intelligence

- however now that we have chats like bard i find its possible for us to double check foundations of most womens intel sources from 2001 -65th birthday party of fazle abed where steve jobs friends in silicon valley first asked abed to make birtday wishes linking in poorest womens intel with silcon valley intel

meanwhile since nov 2023 characters as varied as bill gates, elon musk , risky sunak have said ai makes it possible to completely change education- how youth and teachers time is spent and data on community advances integrated=- thats a topic friends at the economist first debated as main value of designing intelligence machines back in 1984 www.economistdiary.com/1984

one of the future's defining paradoxes is;confirmed in this chat with bard

Am I correct that a conclusion og Neumann-Einstein-Turing was humans are always cabale of asking deeper questions than machines but machines can always be asked to analyse deeoer data than humans can process?


Neumann, Einstein, and Turing all believed that humans would always be able to ask deeper questions than machines. They believed that humans have a unique ability to think creatively and to ask questions that machines cannot even conceive of.

However, they also believed that machines would always be able to analyze deeper data than humans can process. They believed that machines have a unique ability to store and process large amounts of data, and to find patterns and correlations that humans would never be able to see.

This difference in capabilities between humans and machines is what makes them complementary. Humans can ask the deep questions, and machines can analyze the deep data. By working together, humans and machines can achieve things that neither could achieve on their own.

This is a very important conclusion, and it has implications for the future of AI. It means that AI will never be able to replace humans, but it can be a powerful tool that can help humans to achieve great things.

Here are some quotes from Neumann, Einstein, and Turing that support this conclusion:

  • "The question is not whether machines can think but whether machines can learn what humans have learned." - John von Neumann
  • "The human brain is an organ which is designed to solve problems. The machine is designed to solve problems. The brain is better at some kinds of problems, the machine at others." - Albert Einstein
  • "I believe that machines will eventually surpass human intelligence, but I also believe that this will be a good thing for humanity." - Alan Turing

I hope this helps!

GIFTS OF NEUMANN EINSTEIN TURING

In the 70 years we have researched gifts from the NET as clarified by Von Neumann's tear of briefings in 1951, we have found that Architects of Intel value 2 visionary questions

how are (8 billion) people's' times being spent ?(thats up from 2.5 bn when the NET left earth)

how is data beaming up and down from every coordinate on planet being app'd as intelligence locacla communities most urgently need?

  (whilst this question was always expected to arrive on earth thanks to 100 times more tech per decade) it wasn't until around 2009 that 4g standards started to roll out this challenge of total interdependence beyond bordesr; - crises that accelerated at end of 2010s indicates questions are still being asked even as 4g has been accomanpied by other system transformational opportunities such as pretrained AI (the innovation fei-fei li brought to stanfortd human ai) and blockchain (the innovation thatsstilll hasnt found its most humanly sustainable maps or apps

june 14 llm summary UN chat digital public goods 

Sure, here are some things that you can summarize from the side chat of the UN dialogue on global digital commons on June 24, 2023:

  • The need for open and accessible infrastructure: Many participants in the chat expressed the need for open and accessible infrastructure, such as the O3B network, to support digital education and other initiatives in less developed countries.
  • The importance of data: Several participants also emphasized the importance of data, and how it can be used to improve education, climate adaptation, and other areas.
  • The need for new technologies: Some participants called for the development of new technologies, such as AGI, to help address the challenges of digital commons.
  • The importance of collaboration: Many participants also stressed the importance of collaboration between different stakeholders, such as governments, businesses, and civil society, to build a more equitable and sustainable digital future.

Overall, the side chat of the UN dialogue on global digital commons highlighted the importance of open and accessible infrastructure, data, new technologies, and collaboration in building a more equitable and sustainable digital future.

Here are some additional thoughts on the side chat:

  • The need for inclusive conversations: It is important to ensure that all stakeholders, including those from less developed countries, have a voice in the conversation about digital commons. This can be done by providing access to information and resources, and by creating opportunities for dialogue and collaboration.
  • The need for a global approach: The challenges of digital commons are global in nature, and therefore require a global approach. This means working together to develop common standards, policies, and practices.
  • The need for a long-term vision: The challenges of digital commons are complex and will not be solved overnight. It is important to have a long-term vision for how we can build a more equitable and sustainable digital future.

I hope this helps!

I am thinking particularly about UN cooperations around sdg innovations and organsiations that have enough resources to update their catalogues' edges across decades. eg Japans broadcaster NHK has 100 sdg ideas https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/ondemand/program/video/100ideas/ IT also does a pretty good bob of components of tech that were minaturised first in japan - eg the integration of mobile phone and camera or back 1964 japan electronic calcultor whose chip order to intel was so big that moore's law emerged along with programable silicon chips. Any nationally smart catalogues of that sort?



Sure, here are a few nationally smart catalogues of SDG innovations:

  • The World Economic Forum's SDG Innovation Platform is a database of over 1,000 SDG innovations from around the world. The platform includes information on the innovation, the organization behind it, and the impact it has had.
  • The United Nations Development Programme's (UNDP) SDG Innovation Fund is a $200 million fund that invests in SDG innovations. The fund supports innovations that have the potential to scale and make a significant impact on the SDGs.
  • The Global Social Innovation Network (GSIN) is a network of organizations that support social innovation. The GSIN has a database of over 10,000 social innovations from around the world.
  • The Ashoka Changemakers is a network of social entrepreneurs. The Ashoka Changemakers has a database of over 3,000 social entrepreneurs from around the world.
  • The Skoll Foundation is a foundation that supports social entrepreneurs. The Skoll Foundation has a database of over 1,000 social entrepreneurs from around the world.

I hope this helps!



Any smart catalogues of sdg innovations compiled out of Asia -eg please note the top 20 asian supercities have very different societal tech than the west


Yes, there are a number of smart catalogues of SDG innovations compiled out of Asia. Here are a few examples:

  • The Asian Development Bank's (ADB) SDG Innovation Platform is a database of over 1,000 SDG innovations from around Asia. The platform includes information on the innovation, the organization behind it, and the impact it has had.
  • The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific's (UNESCAP) SDG Innovation Hub is a platform that showcases SDG innovations from around Asia. The hub includes information on the innovation, the organization behind it, and how it can be replicated in other countries.
  • The World Bank's SDG Innovation Marketplace is a platform that connects SDG innovators with investors and partners. The marketplace includes information on the innovation, the organization behind it, and the impact it has had.

I hope this helps!

My understanding is that lesson plans are short summaries often applicable to 45 mnutes study time. Do you know if anyone =eg UN - catalogues climate solutions as lessons plans which could be chosen like a menu depending on crisis facing a student group. Is this an emerging need that bard could help with?


View other drafts

Yes, I believe that there is an emerging need for climate solutions lesson plans that can be tailored to the specific needs of students and communities. These lesson plans could help students to learn about the causes and effects of climate change, as well as the solutions that are available. They could also help students to develop the skills and knowledge that they need to take action on climate change.

There are a number of organizations that are working to develop climate solutions lesson plans. Some of these organizations include:

  • The Climate Reality Project: The Climate Reality Project is a non-profit organization that works to educate people about climate change. The project has developed a number of lesson plans that can be used in schools and other educational settings.
  • The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA): NOAA is a federal agency that is responsible for studying and predicting the Earth's climate. NOAA has developed a number of lesson plans that can be used to teach students about climate change.
  • The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC): The UNFCCC is an international treaty that aims to address climate change. The UNFCCC has developed a number of lesson plans that can be used to teach students about climate change.

I believe that Bard could help to develop climate solutions lesson plans in a number of ways. First, Bard could be used to gather information about climate change from a variety of sources. This information could then be used to create lesson plans that are accurate and up-to-date. Second, Bard could be used to create lesson plans that are engaging and interactive. This would help students to learn about climate change in a fun and memorable way. Third, Bard could be used to translate lesson plans into different languages. This would make the lesson plans accessible to a wider audience.

I believe that climate solutions lesson plans are an important tool for educating students about climate change. These lesson plans can help students to learn about the causes and effects of climate change, as well as the solutions that are available. They can also help students to develop the skills and knowledge that they need to take action on climate change. I believe that Bard could play a valuable role in developing these lesson plans.

AI Climate - some talking points around Stanford HAI

real-time map carbon emissions- us electricity

Latest summary Jan 2023 https://hai.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/2023-01/HAI_IndustryBr...

https://hai.stanford.edu/news/ai-and-sustainability-will-ai-help-or...

Mineral exploration is incredibly inefficient, says Stanford professor of geological sciences Jef Caers. It takes companies 200 attempts to find one mineral deposit, and then 10 years to start mining. Caers is working with a mining company in Ontario called KoBold to develop an AI tool to more efficiently find minerals vital for the production of EV batteries.

“We have a problem of data being proprietary,” Caers said. “Canada and Australia require companies to report any land data to an open government dataset, but this is not the case in the U.S.,” he said. If governments don’t require companies to share their data, the work of sustainability will be hindered. He sees open datasets maintained by national governments as an important step forward. (Read one proposal from Stanford HAI for a National Research Cloud.)

www.bard.solar everyone my father Norman Macrae worked closely with at The Economist from 1948-1992 saw V Neumann as the origin of all interactions between human and artificial intel- please can you review his final book "computer and the brain" from the perspective of its systems-exponential impact on economies, societies and species sustainability around the world? Also if any of today's leading AI researchers are known to have been influenced by V Neumann or Einstein please detail

View other drafts

John von Neumann was a Hungarian-American mathematician and polymath who made major contributions to a wide range of fields, including mathematics, physics, computer science, and economics. His work on the computer and the brain was groundbreaking, and his ideas have had a profound impact on our understanding of both artificial intelligence and the human mind.

In his book "The Computer and the Brain," von Neumann compares the brain to a digital computer, arguing that both systems are capable of performing complex computations. However, he also points out that there are important differences between the two systems. For example, the brain is able to perform parallel processing, while digital computers can only process information one step at a time.

Von Neumann's work on the computer and the brain has had a significant impact on the development of artificial intelligence. His ideas have been used to create artificial neural networks, which are computer models that are inspired by the structure of the human brain. Artificial neural networks are now used in a wide range of applications, including speech recognition, image recognition, and machine translation.

Von Neumann's work has also had a significant impact on our understanding of the human mind. His ideas have been used to develop new theories of consciousness and cognition. For example, some researchers believe that the brain may use a form of parallel processing to generate consciousness.

The systems-exponential impact of von Neumann's work on the computer and the brain is difficult to overstate. His ideas have led to the development of artificial intelligence, which is now having a profound impact on economies, societies, and species sustainability around the world. For example, artificial intelligence is being used to develop new medical treatments, improve transportation systems, and create new forms of art and entertainment.

It is also worth noting that many of today's leading AI researchers have been influenced by von Neumann and Einstein. For example, Geoffrey Hinton, one of the pioneers of deep learning, has said that von Neumann was "one of the most important mathematicians of the 20th century." And Stephen Hawking has said that Einstein was "the greatest scientist of all time."

The work of von Neumann and Einstein has had a profound impact on our understanding of the universe and our place in it. Their ideas have inspired generations of scientists and engineers, and their work continues to shape our world today.

I hope this helps!

Hassibis White House Pcast 5/19/23
 I spent my whole career working on AI because I believe in the incredible 
potential it has to help us solve some of the biggest challenges facing humanity today from curing diseases to
creating renewable energy sources of the future but of course because of its power we
also need to make sure we use it responsibly and handle it with exceptional care
12:19


 at the deepmind we started off working on AI using games mostly because it was a very efficient way to explore 
purpose and AI algorithms in an efficient way; probably our most famous program is called alphago that was the first program to beat the world champion at go in 2015. but not only did It win the match, importantly it came up with new strategies never seen before even though people have played go for thousands of years  including professionally for hundreds of years so it's this kind of potential that I think is very exciting about this new General learning AI
at the heart of all the systems that we've built .

Why they're so effective is that basically these systems learn a model of the environment they're put in so if that's a go game they learn a model of go positions and what kinds of moves are going to likely to be good and therefore to look at and that model is to guide a search or planning function and because the models the environment very well it allows this search to be very efficient and that means we can use these kinds of systems in situations where there are an enormous number of combinations so for example in go there are around 10 to the power 170 possible positions in go - that's far to many to analyse in a Brute Force manner so we needed to have this kind of model to allow the search to be tractable and to allow alphago to find these amazingly strong moves and strategic ideas
 so the exciting thing now is that over the last few years the sophistication of these types of AI systems have got to the point where we can now apply it to imported real world problems  and my particular passion is applying it to Scientific problems to try and accelerate scientific discovery and the main first big problem we applied it to is called the protein
folding problem and proteins are essential to all life they're the workhorses of biology and their function
what they do in the body partially depends on their 3D structure and determining this structure
experimentally often takes years of painstaking work in the laboratory.
What the protein folding problem is about is can we predict the 3D structure of a protein directly from its
one-dimensional amino acid sequence : basically a series of letters can we predict the 3D structure and this was
first conjectured by Christian Anfinsen in his Nobel lecture 1972 https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/chemistry/1972/summary/
.So Protein became a 50-year Grand Challenge in biology 

SO  our solution to this was building our program Alphafold to predict the 3D structure of the proteins down to Atomic accuracy ie within the tolerance of the width of an atom and that is accurate enough for  biologists to use Downstream and on all sorts of tasks involved in understanding disease and potentially designing drugs

So over the course of the 18 months we used Alphafold. which can predict the structure of a protein in a matter of seconds -the result is the structure of all 200 million proteins that are known to science and we released all of those structures freely in the alpha protein structure database that we created in collaboration with the European bioinformatics
Institute and to date the sort of impact of alpha fold has been hugely  gratifying to see : there's been over a million  researchers have now used  AlphaFold,
from pretty much every country around the world, and our methods paper has now been cited over 10 000 times  in just 18 months and my biology professors always used to tell me the rule of thumb of finding the structure of a protein in the experimental way you know would normally take a PhD student their entire PhD ;so maybe four or five years and 200 million protein represents nearly a billion years of PhD time

actually the the broad things  alphafold have been used for in the biological community range from  designing enzymes that are more efficient at eating plastic pollution to drug Discovery in areas like: 1 antibiotic resistance  2 neglected diseases like leashmenasis 3 developing vaccines for malaria to fundamental biology research for example finding the structure of the Nuclear Pore Complex one of the biggest proteins in the body and developing new types of delivery mechanisms using
protein syringes https://www.techtimes.com/articles/289709/20230329/deepminds-alphaf...

I think this is just the beginning of what we're going to see AI being used in science


in the last couple of years we've had breakthroughs in fields as far afield as quantum chemistry and solving some important conjectures in pure mathematics to controlling the plasma in a fusion reactor to work on gene expression prediction

 so while this is an incredibly exciting time and  I think we're going to see some amazing advances uh that have been powered by AI in the next five to ten years we of course need to be very responsible and
 transformative Technologies like AI deserve exceptional care

and our sort of Mantra is that we need to be bold and responsible :  we need to be brave about how we try and apply these things because of the enormous potential for positive impact these Technologies can have but we also need to be responsible with that at the same time think ethics and safety has been Central to our mission a deep mind and at Google
from the beginning 

when we started back in 2010 we planned for Success almost nobody was talking about AI and now you know in short 10 years it seems to be the biggest thing that everyone is talking about - but we plan for success and we sort of understood in the beginning that if we were successful as a field with these types of Technologies the impact would be profound and therefore we had to think about ethics and safety from the very beginning and we've always had an Ethics Charter and that's now developed and evolved into Google's published AI principles and we continue to try and provide sort of responsible and thoughtful leadership on a range of topics from AI strategy to risk to ethics and safety in engagement
with the entire Community thank you

=============END OF HASSIBIS TALK WHITE HOUSE MAY 19,2023

START OF FEI-FEI  LI TALK


19:42
hi everyone it's a true honor to be here
 the title of my talk is AI the human impact and responsibility

 I thought best use of time would be five headlines; of course I'll expand each a little

1 AI is truly at an inflection point

: I say this from 20 plus years as a technologist and scientist I truly feel we have arrived at an important inflection point thanks to generative AI especially language models next ;  there are many ways to
characterize this moment,

one of my favorites is to show you over the past few years the number of generative AI systems based on mostly
language models have really exploded both in terms of the number as well as in terms of the size of the model as well as frankly in terms of the impact

if you look at the past the decade the number of computer science Bachelor graduates has grew nearly three times and this is really daunting for those of us working the public sector working  in Academia higher education -if we don't cap classes eg at Stanford my class will be having thousands of students right now;  my classes capped at 600;  it's incredible and it's really important to recognize what this means for for our world and for this technology

so my second headline   large language model are just the beginning...
of the the the impact of this technology 

This graph shows that the ecosystem that's going to grow out of this technology of large language model is tremendous] it's increasing every day every one of these companies whether they're serving verticals eg  healthcare or energy or entertainment or education - all these sectors are being impacted

 but when I say it's just the beginning I want to remind everybody that intelligence is not just language

there is actually deeply profoundly interesting technology coming and will be going out of the door soon for example in my area of research which is computer vision and perception based, we're seeing incredible advances whether you're looking at 3D technology to interpret the 3D World or understanding of human behaviors activities poses or you are recognizing and segmenting images based on objects and semantics or
the kind of generative art and simulations like we see in in Dall-E and all this will unlock even
further the kind of impact this technology will have
24:16
and last but not least next in terms of this Digital Data will see the marriage between the physical world and AI especially through embodying intelligence in areas such as robotics -this is another area both my lab and many of my colleagues are working in, so all this is to show you I'm very excited about what is coming
for this technology 

headline 3   AI can augment humans

something that really makes me excited and proud of our work every day  is that AI can be a
technology that augments and enhance humans

I'm gonna just show you one example which is how it can transform Healthcare ; in healthcare space there are many many situations we don't know what's going on with our patients ; we don't know how the the treatment is happening and we have heard difficult ways to assess the situation

and for example in surgical rooms we have a tremendous responsibility of tracking objects tracking small items it has profound clinical implications for the safety of the patients and using smart perception 
like smart camera technology can help our clinicians to track and automate some part of the the tedious work that is critical for the safety and outcome of a surgery 


or thinking about  our increasingly aging population worldwide (and as  pandemic has showed us that living
independently with quality at home is critical for for everybody and we have a
lot of potential for this technology in terms of ambient intelligence to help
family members caretakers and clinicians to take care of our patients and
elderlies

so the examples are abundant if we unlock the ability of AI we can see profound changes in education in
healthcare in disaster relief in e-commerce and many things to go next

HEADLINE 4 PROFOUND SOCIAL IMPACT
if we dive into economics, here's just one example of my colleague Erik Brynjolfsson's work at Stanford human Center AI Institute

to look at how AI generative AI language models can boost contact center workers productivity and
this is the purple curve that shows various ways that it helps our workers

but it is important to recognize it also can propagate issues such as human biases..

so this brings me to this call t we must build trustworthy and responsible AI which includes many different
dimensions this but this is why we need human centered technology not just AI itself

Headline 5 - policy: ensuring a better tomorrow

 coming as I do from the public sector and higher education I think there are profound ways that policy making can help especially ensuring A Better Tomorrow  t

his is a graph to show that currently industry has been dominating AI Talent acquisition as well
as development; the curve is showing that we have an acceleration of Industries dominance in the R&D as  well as Talent acquisition of AI

 the technology is becoming bigger and bigger and requires more and more resource and all the red dots of the recent developments are showing again the acceleration of Industries dominance

 but one of the key things of a healthy America economy is the importance between it's a healthy
ecosystem between public sector higher education research as well as industry
and government this is why we have putting a lot of effort in in advocating
and leading as National AI research resource um uh call that hopes to strengthen and
democratize America's AI Innovation ecosystem 

this is with the goal of rejuvenating this ecosystem uh between all these
three sectors and making sure that we not only develop this technology we
developed this technology for the benefits of humans and uh responsibly
and with trustworthiness thank you

Is Ai.google tech world's largest foundation?

No, AI.google is not the world's largest foundation. It is a research division of Google that is focused on artificial intelligence. The world's largest foundation is the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which has assets of over $50 billion. AI.google does not have any assets, and it is not a charitable organization. It is a research division of Google that is focused on developing new artificial intelligence technologies.

Here are some of the world's largest foundations:

  • Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
  • Wellcome Trust
  • Ford Foundation
  • Rockefeller Foundation
  • Carnegie Corporation of New York

These foundations are all non-profit organizations that are dedicated to improving the lives of others. They provide funding for a variety of initiatives, including education, healthcare, and poverty alleviation.

If my memory is correct : A few days ago i asked whether google.org was your largest foundation and was told ai.google was?

You are correct. On January 24, 2023, I told you that AI.google was Google's largest foundation. However, I was mistaken. Google.org is Google's largest foundation.

AI.google is a research division of Google that is focused on artificial intelligence. It is not a charitable organization. Google.org is a philanthropic organization that is focused on using technology to solve some of the world's most pressing problems. It has assets of over $1 billion.

I apologize for the error. I am still under development and learning to be more accurate.


Can you tell me in google.org who should i follow as knowing most about AI for good?


Sure. Here are some people in Google.org who are knowledgeable about AI for good:

  • Jeff Dean is a Senior Fellow and SVP leading Google Research. He is one of the world's leading experts in artificial intelligence. He has made significant contributions to the development of deep learning, natural language processing, and other AI technologies.
  • Megan Smith is the CEO of Google.org. She is a former U.S. Chief Technology Officer and has a long history of working on technology policy and social impact. She is passionate about using technology to solve some of the world's most pressing problems.
  • Amit Agarwal is the Vice President of Product at Google.org. He is responsible for leading the development of Google's products and services that are focused on social impact. He has a deep understanding of how technology can be used to improve people's lives.
  • Liz Fisher is the Director of AI for Social Good at Google.org. She is responsible for leading Google's efforts to use AI to solve some of the world's most pressing problems. She has a deep understanding of the potential of AI to make a positive impact on the world.

These are just a few of the many people in Google.org who are knowledgeable about AI for good. I encourage you to learn more about their work and to follow them on social media.

what happens if you search FFL and HAI and cloud

if you search bard you might see

Here are some connections that you might want to have teenagers question first between Fei-Fei Li, Google Cloud, and Stanford HAI:

  • Fei-Fei Li is a pioneer in the field of generative AI. She is the co-founder of ImageNet, a large-scale dataset of images that is used to train generative AI models. Google Cloud is a cloud computing platform that offers a variety of services for generative AI, including Google AI Platform and Google Cloud AutoML. Stanford HAI is a research institute that focuses on human-centered AI.
  • Fei-Fei Li is a former Chief Scientist of AI/ML at Google Cloud. In this role, she led the development of Google's cloud-based AI services. Google Cloud is a major player in the cloud computing market, and its AI services are used by businesses and organizations around the world.
  • Fei-Fei Li is a co-director of Stanford HAI. Stanford HAI is a leading research institute in the field of human-centered AI. Its research focuses on the ethical and social implications of AI, as well as the development of AI technologies that are beneficial to humanity.

Here are some questions that teenagers might want to ask about these connections:

  • How did Fei-Fei Li's work on ImageNet contribute to the development of generative AI?
  • How do Google Cloud's AI services help businesses and organizations use AI to solve real-world problems?
  • What are the ethical and social implications of generative AI?
  • How can AI be used to benefit humanity?

These are just a few of the connections and questions that teenagers might want to explore when learning about Fei-Fei Li, Google Cloud, and Stanford HAI. By asking these questions, teenagers can gain a deeper understanding of the field of generative AI and its potential impact on the world.

Norman Macrae 1923-2010

 

When I joined the Economist in 1983, Norman Macrae was the
deputy editor. He died last week at the age of 87. Soon after I
joined the staff, a thing called a computer terminal appeared on my
desk and my electric typewriter disappeared. Around that time,
Norman wrote a long article that became a book about the future. It
was one of the strangest things I had ever read.

It had boundless optimism —

Over the last decade, I have
written many articles in The Economist and delivered lectures in
nearly 30 countries across the world saying the future should be
much more rosy. This book explores the lovely future people could
have if only all democrats made the right
decisions.

combined with a weird technological vision —

Eventually books, files,
television programmes, co
mputer
information and telecommunications will merge. We’ll have this
portable object which is a television screen with first a
typewriter, later a voice activator attached. Afterwards it will be
minaturised so that your personal access instrument can be carried
in your buttonhole, but there will be these cheap terminals around
everywhere, more widely than telephones of 1984. The terminals will
be used to access databases anywhere in the globe, and will become
the brainworker’s mobile place of work. Brainworkers, which will
increasingly mean all workers, will be able to live in Tahiti if
they want to and telecommute daily to the New York or Tokyo or
Hamburg office through which they work. In the satellite age costs
of transmission will not depend mainly on distance. And knowledge
once digitalised can be replicated for use anywhere almost
instantly.

and a startlingly fresh economic perspective —

In the 1890s around half of the
workforce in countries like the United States were in three
occupations: agriculture, domestic service and jobs to do with
horse transport. By the 1970s these three were down to 4 per cent
of the
 workforce. If this had been
foretold in the 1890s, there would have been a wail. It would have
been said that half the population was fit only to be farmworkers,
parlourmaids and sweepers-up of horse manure. Where would this half
find jobs? The answer was by the 1970s the majority of them were
much more fully employed ( because more married women joined the
workforce) doing jobs that would have sounded double-Dutch in the
1890s: extracting oil instead of fish out of the North Sea; working
as computer programmers, or as television engineers, or as
package-holiday tour operators chartering jet
aircraft.

When he retired in 1988 he wrote

Some will say [I have] been too
optimistic. That is what a 65-year-old like me finds it natural to
be. When I joined The Economist in 1949 it seemed unlikely that the
world would last long. But here we stand, 40 memory-sodden years
on, and what have we done? What we have done – largely because the
poorest two-thirds of people are living much longer – is
approximately to octuple real gross world product. During the brief
civilian working lives of us returning soldiers from the second
world war, we have added seven times as much to the world’s
producing power as was added during all the previous millennia of
homo sapien’s existence. That may help to explain why some of us
sound and write rather tired. It does not explain why anybody in
the next generation, to whom we gladly vacate our posts, can dare
to sound pessimistic.

He was a rational optimist.

Our 1984 scenario of an internetworking world

The great technological event of the next 40 years will be the steady rise in importance of the Telecommunications-Computer terminal (TC for short)... Eventually books, files, television programmes, computer information and telecommunications will merge. We'll have this portable object which is a television screen with first a typewriter, later a voice activator attached. Afterwards it will be minaturised so that your personal access instrument can be carried in your buttonhole, but there will be these cheap terminals around everywhere, more widely than telephones of 1984. The terminals will be used to access databases anywhere in the globe, and will become the brainworker's mobile place of work. Brainworkers, which will increasingly mean all workers, will be able to live in Tahiti if they want to and telecommute daily to the New York or Tokyo or Hamburg office through which they work. In the satellite age costs of transmission will not depend mainly on distance. And knowledge once digitalised can be replicated for use anywhere almost instantly.

Over the last decade, I have written many articles in The Economist and delivered lectures in nearly 30 countries across the world saying the future should be much more rosy. This book explores the lovely future people could have if only all democrats made the right decisions.

Norman Macrae, 1984.

Changing communications, and what makes people distant, bossy etc

Telecommunications are now recognised as the third of the three great transport revolutions that have, in swift succession, transformed society in the past two hundred years. First, were the railways; second the automobile; and third, telecommunications-attached-to-the-computer, which was bound to be the most far-reaching because in telecommunications, once the infrastructure is installed, the cost of use does not depend greatly on distance. So by the early years of the twenty-first century brainworkers - which in rich countries already meant most workers - no longer need to live near their work.

All three revolutions were opposed by the ruling establishments of their time, and therefore emerged fastest where government was weak. All three brought great new freedoms to the common man, but the railway and motor-car ages temporarily made access to capital the most important source of economic power. As most men and women did not like being bossed about by capitalists who could become more powerful because they were born stinking rich, they voted to give greater economic power to governments during the railway and motor-car ages. This was economically inefficient, and also made tyrannies more likely and more terrible. The information revolution was fortunately the exact opposite of the steam engine's industrial revolution and of Henry Ford's mass production automobile revolution in this respect. The steam engine and mass production has made start-up costs for the individual entrepreneur larger and larger, so that in both the steam and automobile ages to quote Bell Canada's Gordon Thompson in the early 1970s, there was 'no way an ordinary citizen could walk into a modern complex factory and use its facilities to construct something useful for himself'. But, as Thompson forecast, the databases of the next decades were places into which every part-time enthusiast could tele-commute. In all jobs connected with the use of information, start-up costs for the individual entrepreneur in 1984-2024 have grown smaller and smaller. It was 'never thus', said Thompson, 'with power shovels and punch presses'.

In consequence, in the TC age, the most important economic resource is no longer ownership of or access to capital, but has become the ability to use readily available knowledge intelligently and entrepreneurially.

Changing national politics

For a region's people to succeed in the Telecommuting Age there are four main requirements - satisfied in places as far apart ad Guam and Queensland and Cape Province and California and Penang and Scotland. First , as the prophet John Naisbitt said in 1982, 'the languages needed for the immediate future are computer and English'. Second, the area has to be a nice one in which to live. Third, it is important that all income earners should adapt happily to a 'cafeteria of compensation' schemes. These allow the individual employee to decide what mix (s)he wants of salary, job objectives, career aims, flexitime, job sharing, long or short holidays, fringe benefits or fringe nuisances. Fourth, there needs to be a competitive and quickly changing telecommunications system. The TC age is making understanding of these requirements increasingly transparent among human beings worldwide.

Governments at first tried to impede or regulate much of this, but an early discovery of the Telecommutung age was that we could change the way we chose our governments. Until the 1990s we had pretended to ourselves that we could alter our lifestyles by choosing on each Tuesday or Thursday every four years whether Mr Reagan or Mr Carter , Mrs Thatcher or Mr Kinnock, was putting on the tribal demonstration which at that particular moment annoyed us less. After the advent of the TC we found that the more sensible and direct way in which a free man or woman could choose government was by voting with his or her feet. The individual could go to live in any area where the government - which could from then on be a very local government - permitted the lifestyle, rules and customs which suited that human being.

Changing Economics

The introduction of the international Centrobank was the last great act of government before government grew much less important. It was not a conception of policy-making governments at all, but emerged from the first computerised town meeting of the world.

By 2005 the gap in income and expectations between the rich and poor nations was recognised to be man's most dangerous problem. Internet linked television channels in sixty-eight countries invited their viewers to participate in a computerised conference about it, in the form of a series of weekly programmes. Recommendations tapped in by viewers were tried out on a computer model of the world economy. If recommendations were shown by the model to be likely to make the world economic situation worse, they were to be discarded. If recommendations were reported by the model to make the economic situation in poor countries better, they were retained for 'ongoing computer analysis' in the next programme.

In 2024 it is easy to see this as a forerunner of the TC conferences which play so large a part in our lives today, both as pastime and principal innovative device in business. But the truth of this 2005 breakthrough tends to irk the highbrow. It succeeded because it was initially a rather downmarket network television programme. About 400 million people watched the first programme, and 3 million individuals or groups tapped in suggestions. Around 99 per cent of these were rejected by the computer as likely to increase the unhappiness of mankind. It became known that the rejects included suggestions submitted by the World Council of Churches and by many other pressure groups. This still left 31,000 suggestions that were accepted by the computer as worthy of ongoing analysis. As these were honed, and details were added to the most interesting, an exciting consensus began to emerge. Later programmes were watched by nearly a billion people as it became recognised that something important was being born.

These audiences were swollen by successful telegimmicks. The presenter of the first part of the first programme was a roly-poly professor who was that year's Nobel laureate in economics, and who proved a natural television personality. He explained that economists now agreed that aid programmes could sometimes help poor countries, but sometimes most definitely made their circumstances worse. When Mexico was inflating at over 80 per cent a year in the early 1980s , the inflow to it of huge loanable funds made its inflation even faster and its crash more certain. The professor set Mexico's 1979-1981 economy on the model, pumped in the loaned funds and showed how all the indicators ( higher inflation, lower real gross domestic product and so on) then flashed red, signaling an economy getting worse, rather than green, signaling an economy getting better. ..The professor then put the model back to mirror the contemporary world of 2005, and played into it various nostrums that had been recommended by politicians of left, right and centre, but mostly left. The dials generally flashed red. Then the professor provided another set of recommendations , and asked viewers who wished to play to tap in their own guesses on the consequent movement of key economics variables in the model. Those who got their guesses right to within a set error were told they had qualified for a second round of a knock-out economic guesstimators' world championship. Knockout competitions of this sort continued for viewers throughout the series of programmes.

In the second part of that first programme, the presenters dared to introduce two political decisions into the game. They said that government-to-government aid programmes had been particularly popular among politicians during the age of over-government, but there was growing agreement that government-to-government aid was the worst method of hand-out. The excessive role played by governments in poor countries was one of the barriers to their economic advance, and a main destroyer of their people's freedom. Could anyone have thought it would be wise to give aid to President Mbogo?

In consequence, the most successful economic aid programmes had been those operated through the International Monetary Fund, which imposed conditions on how borrowing governments should operate. The professor showed that IMF-monitored operations in most years had brought more green flashes from the model than red. But this involved IMF officials - often from the rich countries - in telling governments of poor countries what to do; and one of the objectives of this town meeting of the world was to diminish such embarrassments.

The first questions to be asked in the next few programmes, said the compilers, were 1) which countries should qualify for aid? ; and having decided that, 2) up to what limits and conditions? ; and 3) through what mechanisms? They promised that later programmes after the first half-dozen would examine how any scheme could be used to diminish the power of governments and increase the power of free markets and free people.

Changing employment

In a typical 21st C scene, obedience to consumer needs is shown by every car plant in the world because of better and more customised information available on all our TCs. Most people buying a car in 2024 will key into their special requirements into their TCs.

The TC will reply: "You can get a customised car which meets all of your specifications by putting personalised instructions on the software of the assembly line's robots in one of these factories (choice of nine) requesting that the next car on the line be modified as you dictate. But that would cost up to $40,000 (Click to factories for quotations and credit facilities). For a fifth of that price, you can meet most of your requirements by the following standard computer programme at present scheduled for production in June at Nissan Kanpur; or July at Ford Manila (and so on). Click to factories for precise specifications and prices.

All of this has become commonplace after 2000. How has it affected employment?

For a new industry of 2019-2024 let us cite the intendedly short-lived example of the Clark-Schmidt Robot Gardener. Matthew Clark was a 53-year old on his third university course (he had started the other two at the ages of nineteen and thirty-seven respectively) telecommuted through the University of Southern California, although he took it while living in his native Australia , when, together with two other student's telecommuting through USC's database, he devised a system for a robot-driven lawnmower which could also scan soil and assess the possibilities for reseeding. It signaled the videos to be called up on your TC to show alternative uses for the soil in your garden. If you picked one video display that particularly suited your taste, you keyed in its number into the Robot Gardener and it signaled back, 'put such-and-such chemical into my tank and seeds 1234, 3456 (et cetera), plus software program 29387 - both orderable through your TC - into my reseeder.'

Clark and his two colleagues put their tentative ideas for this device on the researchers' database monitored by the University of Southern California. The entry numbers to the USC database were held by people who had promised to accept the computer's judgement of the value of any ideas they might contribute to projects entered on it. In all, 1213 people - domiciled from Hanoi through Penang and Capri and Bermuda back to Queensland in Australia itself - tapped in suggestions for improvements, of which 176 were accepted nby the computer as worthwhile. The payments recommended by the computer ranged from $42 ( for a cosmetic improvement recommended by an eleven-year-old schoolboy) to one tenth of the equity (eventually worth several million dollars) for a proposal by a research team from another telecommuting university which proved important enough for Clark to feel slightly guilty about calling the Robot Gardener after himself.

When the improvements suggested by these 176 contributors had been incorporated by Clark into the appropriate software program for making the Robot Gardener , it was advertised on USC's entrepreneur-browsing program available on any TC. Entry numbers for the lowest echelons of this can be bought for a very few dollars, but the Robot Gardener was put on a higher echelon because USC's computer had signaled this was a potential quick winner.

One of those who had paid for an expensive entry number into browsing among good 'proffered opportunity products' (POPs) was a Dutchman called Carl Schmidt. He had become a successful 'arranging producer' in an earlier venture, and now occupied himself browsing through his TC looking for a second bonanza. He made an offer to Clark to tale an option for launch in return for a fairly complicates programme of profit sharing, which in practice (because arranging is nowadays a more skilled job than inventing) eventually gave Schmidt more money than Clark. Clark accepted this and Schmidt produced a prototype within three days by reprogramming robots in an experimental plant. A video of the prototype was put on consumers' TC channels worldwide the next week, and most of the 400 odd gardeners' TC channels round the world picked it out within days as a 'best buy'.

Schmidt's video advertisement said 'If you key in your order now with your credit number, you can get a Robot Gardener for a bargain price (applies to the first 10,000 orders only). Tenders are also invited for part of the equity.' The advance orders and bids for equity made it possible to finance assembly of the Robot Gardener for early-bid customers within a few weeks...

Note that there was never any intention that Robot Gardeners Inc should grow into a huge and long-lasting company. Clark and Schmidt are already researching and browsing into other possibilities, on separate courses. About fifty of those who succeeded by early participation in this venture hope to become the equivalent of Clark and Schmidt in other things.

At no stage has this enormously successful manufacturing venture employed more than 1000 people. It is therefore true that the loss of nine-tenths of manufacturing jobs , which we saw has been highest in car-making in rich countries, has also been true there in manufacturing jobs as a whole. Where these countries had 20-40 per cent of their workforces in manufacturing in 1974, they typically have 2-4 per cent now.

This is not an unprecedented rundown. In the 1890s around half of the workforce in countries like the United States were in three occupations: agriculture, domestic service and jobs to do with horse transport. By the 1970s these three were down to 4 per cent of the workforce. If this had been foretold in the 1890s, there would have been a wail. It would have been said that half the population was fit only to be farmworkers, parlourmaids and sweepers-up of horse manure. Where would this half find jobs? The answer was by the 1970s the majority of them were much more fully employed ( because more married women joined the workforce) doing jobs that would have sounded double-Dutch in the 1890s: extracting oil instead of fish out of the North Sea; working as computer programmers, or as television engineers, or as package-holiday tour operators chartering jet aircraft.

The move in jobs in the past fifty years in the rich countries has been out of manufacturing and into telecommuting.

Changing education

There has been a sea-change in the traditional ages on man. Compared with 1974 our children in 2024 generally go out to paid work (especially computer programming work) much earlier, maybe starting at nine, maybe at twelve, and we do not exploit them. But young adults of twenty-three to forty-five stay at home to play much more than in 1974; it is quite usual today for one parent (probably now generally the father, although sometimes the mother) to stay at home during the period when young children are growing up. And today adults of forty-three to ninety-three go back to school - via computerised learning - much more than they did in 1974.

In most of the rich countries in 2024 children are not allowed to leave school until they pass their Preliminary Exam. About 5 per cent of American children passed their exam last year before their eight birthday, but the median age for passing it in 2024 is ten-and-a-half, and remedial education is generally needed if a child has not passed it by the age of fifteen.

A child who passes his Prelim can decide whether to tale a job at once, and take up the remainder of his twelve years of free schooling later; or he can pass on to secondary schooling forthwith, and start to study for his Higher Diploma.

The mode of learning for the under-twelves is nowadays generally computer-generated. The child sits at home or with a group of friends or (more rarely) in an actual, traditional school building. She or he will be in touch with a computer program that has discovered , during a preliminary assessment, her or his individual learning pattern. The computer will decide what next questions to ask or task to set after each response from each child.

A school teacher assessor, who may live half a world away, will generally have been hired, via the voucher system by the family for each individual child. A good assessor will probably have vouchers to monitor the progress of twenty-five individual children, although some parents prefer to employ groups of assessors - one following the child's progress in emotional balance, one in mathematics, one in civilized living, and so on - and these groups band together in telecommuting schools.

Many communities and districts also have on-the-spot 'uncles' and 'aunts'. They monitor childrens' educational performance by browsing through the TC and also run play groups where they meet and get to know the children personally...

Some of the parents who have temporarily opted out of employment to be a family educator also put up material on the TC s for other parents to consult. Sometimes the advice is given for free, sometimes as a business. It is a business for Joshua Ginsberg. He puts a parents advice newsletter on the TC , usually monthly. Over 300,000 people subscribe to it, nowadays at a 25-cent fee per person, or less if you accept attached advertisements. Here's an entry from the current newsletter:

"Now that TCs are universal and can access libraries of books, 3-d video, computer programs, you name it, it is clear that the tasks of both the Educator and the Communicator are far more stimulating that ten years ago.

One of my recent lessons with my ten-year-old daughter Julie was in art appreciation. In the standard art appreciation course the TC shows replicas of famous artists' pictures, and a computer asks the pupil to match the artist to the picture. Julie said to the computer that it would be fun to see Constable's Haywain as Picasso might have drawn it. The computer obliged with its interpretation , and then ten more stylised haywains appeared together with the question 'who might have drawn these?'. I believe we are the first to have prompted the TC along this road, but it may now become a standard question when the computer recognises a child with similar learning patterns to Julie's.

It is sometimes said that today's isolated sort of teaching has robbed children of the capacity to play and interact with other children. This is nonsense. We ensure that Julie and her four year old brother Pharon have lots of time to play with children in our neighbourhood . But in work we do prefer to interact with children who are of mutual advantage to Julie and to each other. The computer is an ace teacher, but so are people. You really learn things if you can teach them to someone else. Our computer has helped us to find a group of four including Julie with common interests, who each have expertise in some particular areas to teach the others.

The TC also makes it easier to play games within the family. My parents used to play draughts, halma, then chess with me. They used to try to be nice to me and let me win. This condescending kindness humiliated me, and I always worked frenetically to beat my younger brother (who therefore always lost and dissolved into tears.) Today Julie, Pharon and I play halma together against the graded computer, and Julie and I play it at chess. The computer knows Pharon's standard of play at halma and Julie's and mine at chess. Its default setting is at that level where each of us can win but only if we play at our best. Thus Pharon sometimes wins his halma game while Julie and I are simultaneously losing our chess game, and this rightly gives Pharon a feeling of achievement. When Julie and I have lost at chess, we usually ask the computer to re-rerun the game, stopping at out nmistakes and giving a commentary. As it is a friendly computer it does a marvelous job of consoling us. Last week it told Julie that the world champion actually once made the same mistake as she had done - would she like to see that game?

I intend to devote the next two letters to the subjects I have discussed here , but retailing the best of your suggestions instead of droning on with mine."

While the computer's role in children's education is mainly that of instructor (discovering a child's learning pattern and responding to it) and learning group matcher, its main role in higher education is as a store of knowledge. Although a computer can only know what Man has taught it, it has this huge advantage. No individual man lives or studies long enough to imbibe within himself all the skills and resources that are the product of the millennia of man's quest for knowledge, all the riches and details from man's inheritance of learning passed on from generation to generation. But any computer today can inherit and call up instantly any skill which exists anywhere in the form of a program.

This is why automatically updated databases are today the principal instruments of higher education and academic research. It is difficult for our generation to conceive that only forty years ago our scientists acted as tortoise-like discoverers of knowledge, confined to small and jealous cliques with random and restricted methods of communicating ideas. Down until the 1980s the world has several hundred sepaate cancer research organisations with no central co-ordinating database.

why didn't we transform from the end of the television age to digital webs as learning age? can we seize one last chance with 2020s web designs to value every education error of web1 from 1990 and web2 when we started mobilising all our data to a handful of big corporate monopolies such as FAGAM (Facebook Amazon Google Apple Microsoft). If we don't open data as deep as human communities/lives are, what Artificial Intellect do you think will rule over us instead of free human intellects of millennials champions of first sustainability generation?

1 not enough conversation between ed & tech people - so eg we wait to web is 30 years old and covid surrounds us before zooming

2 not enough transparency between media and edu people -eg do media people really want kids surrounded by fake media violence etc

3 our predictions that edu needed designing back from 3 billion new jobs- were not taken seriously by Western powers that be.

Its only in 2016 at first review of the new sdgs that a circle of 9 educators stood up and said there's no way of achieving goal 4 education or teaching assisting the community last mile practices implied by other sdgs unless across un educators talk to technologists talk to the 50+ operational branches. One year later a fusion of starts began with all the UN's tech experts in Geneva which has been connecting tele-tech since 1865 ITU! Two years later as covid struck Guterres started zooming round a 9 transformational jigsaw ogf gov 2.0 - see the hundreds of leading organisations involved in this . Imagine if this had happened ahead of covid but anyway now for the first time the world has an integrated learning design requiring questions of how learning and teaching time of under 30s is spent; how that over 30's is spent.

survey 1of child centric education

My dream: everyone experiences Harrison Owen OpenSpace After%20the%20Rage.pdf

IF SCHOOLS were child centric they would make age relevant interventions:

if anyone is illiterate at age 6 it only takes 90 days to change that - best of all a literate kid can be main helper in 20 minute session - see sunita gandhi

finacial literacy would be practicsed from age 8 - see aflatoun ( works in 100 countries

from age 10 pre-teens would have access to pfysical and mental health studies designed peer to peer -see Lancet

no kid would leave primary school without knowing how open space meetings/teamwork is facilitated

teachers would be celebrated for clarifying which skills involve experiential learning not classroom examination - while there is some recognition that music and sports involve practice, its shocking that coding isnt valued this way ..

==============

Do you have life-changing moment to share? - what was it and what did you think or do differently after it?

example until 9/11, i assumed that (good) futures are happening somewhere in the world and would be searched out so that all could communally replicate them;  === 9/11 caused me to question whether global connectivity will give us time to find sustainable solutions for our kids- i became particulaly interested in places where good education leaps appeared but did not get app'd the world over - one example actually goes back to my favorite 1990s advances in schools that a small cliuster of new zealand schools pioneered - download it here https://oiipdf.com/download/the-learning-revolution

i welcome discussion of this book's parts at any time rsvp chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk if you have a solution every community that develops youth could be cooperational

in 1984our book with economist editors 2025report made the case for 40 year commitment to every child identifying own skils dashboard and maximising AI curation of this- we valued this as sustainability critical worldwide cooperation - we see no logic for changing this concern

== we live in an age where most up to half of knowhow of techforgood changes every 3 years - we needed mindsets for exploration not for being standard examined; a nation that makes its college students its largest debt class is likely to collapse economically socially environmentally if web3 is designed for celebrating sustainability cooperation; and if web3 is not designed for neough yout to linkin the first sustainability generation then we are all heading the way of the dodo

TECH - What is IT? and which exponential multipliers most impact human and natural futures?

AI   >. silicon chip singularity (ie when one chip > one brain in pure analytical capacity) - science fictiion no moore

who programs the ai - the race to include lost voices eg girls- the world of statistics re=-examined like never before (eg previously mass statistics very weak at coding meaining from numbers)

Biotech  >> Affective science (loveq and emotional intelligence remains human's unique edge over artificials for at least 10 more years!)

Some people say that Virtual or Augmented Reality has advanced at its best so far in last 12 months that there are hardly any qualified teachers only pioneering explorers- does this matter - well its VR which is your gateway to web3 - intead of just a mobile device you will like wear  a visual sensor system; equally others argue that you shouldnt worry about how fast you put googles on - what you should want is to take back ownbership of what you spend time creating virually- look at the small print of the big platforms you probably dont own anything without them..maybe this is a generation issue bu interstingly the met-generation can now work on chnaging anything that old systems are destroying (eg climate) ...t 

 IOT which things will now have brains and be as mobile connected as you are

Crypto - can communities celebrate financiang their own most urgent sustainability cooperations? if they dont who wil?

Cyber >> Drone - opportunities and threats of public spaces- first in spaces like the arctic circle if we dont use drones we will get no warning before the big meltdown

-the mkist memorable western campus event i attended in 2010s was tufts colllaboratory summit convened mainly by arctic circle youth under 25; 

one of the main debates how to help teachers in arctic circle schools empower their students to use virtual reality to visit other arctic circles schools communities; many of the changes and solutions are analogous; I am reminded by educators leading the compilation of virtual realty libraries of the DICE acronym - a reen might want to do something dangerous like climb everest, why not VR simulate that? there are impossible things a trainee doctor will never be able to travel inside a humans gut but that can be VR'd; there are catastropghic simulations - you would rid the world of bees just to test if donald is wrong about nature being more powerful than he is, you can simulate it; or the future of smart tourism may be curation of what a community is proudest of being visited for - this way ecotourism, cultural appreciation exchanges can be twinned to maximise celebration of each other- and by the way friends of the tourist can join in virtually- of corse this raises a metaverse question - that Hong Kong is leading the world on

being 100% public - good and bad hacs- note context matters - context 1 smart city context 2 isolated vilalge no moore context 3 make a huge land safe at borders
