    I need another cup of coffee for a re-read. Being unplugged from the 'Matrix' is not a gift. It is a nihilist hell - it renders everything down to the 'F*ck it - we all die anyway' level. And more cynically - everything was a lie anyway - so again - F*ck it.

    #24 I agree Ian. Sometimes technology gets in the way and other times it greases the skids. I've spent years on the bleeding edge of technology promoting new products and way too often it is the overlooked capability that connects with humanity that makes a product or service successful. As all of us learn to adapt the capabilities of the digital world to our mundane businesses we will find ways to make the products and services we provide more accessible.

    #23 Thanks for that @Jerry Fletcher While reading your comment, a thought occurred to me. Regarding the integration of technology with inter-human engagement, an Uber or Airbnb -type program or concept linking like-minded entrepreneurs in a global network would really get the concept off the ground. I personally would choose to support individuals in trade, who subscribe to the values outlined in my post. Participants would be rated by the network and so it would be in the interests of all those engaged to support, enhance and perpetuate the core values.

    There is a change in the air but I must echo your positive attitude expressed at the end of your piece as I see it among the entrepreneurs I serve as a speaker and a consultant. I have seen a young man in bio research build a company and then intentionally put it in the hands of successors so he could start another business to build hand wrought furniture. I spoke with a young woman who worked as a change agent bringing technology to entire countries who is now intent on providing micro loans to women in Africa. As you say, each of us is more than one thing. Each of us can bring more to humanity. Perhaps technology can help us do that.

    The day an on line retailer, or a robot, or a lifeless multiple person transporter can look me straight in the eye, melt me with a smile and make me feel individual and special ...... that's the day I'll cash in my chips and give up on the human race. Until then, Ian, I'll continue to buy, try, ply and fly where good personal service is the norm rather than a distraction. The sooner service providers get back to providing real honest to goodness service, stop ignoring their customers and clients, and stop whinging about on line competition, the sooner we'll be on track and back towards living sucually instead of individually. As you have aptly stated, Ian, the warning signs are there and we can either cut our social ties and be sucked into a descending spiral of oblivious inhumanity or wake up, say g'day, help our mates, and save the day.
    Robots all the while?
    Or service with a smile?
    I hope the choice is still ours to make.

    I see the horror and I baulk
    Not one step further shall I walk;
    For once beyond the point of no return,
    In endless remorse is where I'll burn.

    There is something about human nature Doc, that resists the urge not to repeat history. So unless something is endemic, unless the pain and the horror hits every individual, every family in some way or the other, the sea change we are hoping for would be difficult to manifest. I too wait for a miracle to put a lie to what I just said, but it sure is no easy road ahead. We are too anaesthetised by the aspirational hype and media unleashed tripe to really get our perspectives right. The truth hidden behind the lie will never get to meet the eye. What you see is what you get will always be the safest bet.

    I prefer not show the middle one yet and I keep them others crossed however ;)

    @Ian Weinberg another gem that makes one think. I'm currently hopping ( literally) around Cambodia where, from my initial observations I can see that the country and its people are battered and bruised. It has the feeling of instability and discontent . AI is a long long way off here as the impoverished people simply toil away to simply feed their families.

    Thanks for this buzzing blog post and your astute analysis on such a timely issue, Ian. However, being an eternal optimist leads me to believe that as old jobs are superseded by AI, machine learning and robotics, new jobs will be created with new and unforeseen technology. Jobs were also lost during the Industrial Revolution, but new jobs emerged. I think the same historical pattern will repeat itself. Another benefit might be working fewer hours but having more time for family and leisure, perhaps with 3-4 day work week. Thus, rather than being burnt out and stressed out by information overload -- buttressed by the frenetic pace of life in the Information Age -- perhaps the new tech noted above will enable people to finally achieve a real work-life balance (which is all too elusive today). Sometimes being an eternal optimist is a good thing, other times it may result in being naive by failing to see the facts. I'm putting my money on the former, not the latter. Ultimately, time will tell. Thanks again for such a thought-provoking and interesting read.

    Still not buying the notion that machine translation and AI will 'dry up' the work for human translators...although I think the nature of their work will change. I think they'll do more post-editing than they're accustomed to but that it will bring them revenue for work they could never have handled themselves. And that some translation projects you just can't entrust to a machine. Anyone got any of their own insights into the future of human translation?

    #3 Thanks Lisa, your doubts are valid and there are a number of philosophical, social, economic and theological confrontations. It is true that technology is very useful and all development is in a way designed to improve our quality of life, but we also run the risk of technology molding us as a society and not the opposite. It is interesting that in societies begin to consider this debate, not to create constraint but to seek to develop the best methods for these technologies to be inserted at the best possible level.

    In my work with the senses, I sense we are discovering new ways to access intelligence that nurtures our wholeness. So if we have had trauma in life we can apply our whole sensory capacities to healing and re-creating the way we are in the world. So, if AI is becoming more intelligent my wish is that humans also develop our intelligence beyond the current limitations of the logical and the rational.

    Dear @Ian Weinberg do you want this to happen? Or, do you think there is nothing we can do, it is happening anyway? I may be naive, but humans create computers, and a computer can only do what we have inputted surely? Whilst we marvel at how computers synthesise data, humans and all living entities also process and synthesise much data that we are not conscious of. I am curious as I keep reading about AI as if it is going to be better than the intelligence held in the living universe. We are still studying nature, living systems and transferring the incredible intelligence of living systems to computers. So what am I missing - to me it is still the living universe that is the marvel, that has the unlimited capacity for intelligence. Now I think AI is great. I love the way we have moved from computers and machines that were purely mechanical, to now have "living" qualities such as sensory capacities. My hope is that as we keep advancing our knowledge of the intelligence of living systems, we not only apply this knowledge to computers but we apply this knowledge to advance our consciousness and intelligence.

    #11 Hi again @David B. Grinberg I don't know where this thing about humans only using a small part of their brains, originates. What I do know is that using diagnostic modalities such as EEG's, fMRI and PET scans, we see comprehensive activity taking place throughout both hemispheres. How much of this activity is cohesively integrated and monitored at the screen of consciousness at any given moment, is another whole discussion. As regards the replication of human consciousness on memory devices, we need to respect the existence of many components that contribute to this thing called consciousness. Inter alia these include data memory storage, unique subjectivity/algorithms, emotion and then of course the interaction of consciousness with quantum phenomena - 'spooky action at a distance'. At this stage I would suggest that data and algorithms could be feasibly replicated and stored. But the million dollar question is how do we get our hands on the source data since we haven't worked out precisely how the neuronal networks store the bytes of info. I would leave you with a thought analogy to ponder - Is the data actually stored in individual brains or are we mere PC's with basic operating systems and unique frequencies, tapping off cloud-based data bases? We do our integration bit (create subjective 'Word' documents) and send them up to the cloud. Likewise we tap off the cloud for substrate data for further integration.

    #38 Wouldn't have made much difference @Gerald Hecht since I was so moist at the time. Now about your snort shake ... could be a great ice-breaker on a first date.

    #33 @Ian Weinberg I hope you weren't consuming any liquids while reading --if you are anything like me regarding a propensity to "snort" whilst laughing...I just can't seem to "shake that one"...

    #10 That is certainly true @stephan metral ๐Ÿ Innovative Brand Ambassador, but they have been carrying out projects in this area for years, and very proactive research in the field of AI, to replicate the human brain capacity in a computer, as Eric Drexler pointed out years ago. The challenge is to achieve so-called 3D molecular computation, that is, to develop three-dimensional circuits with the current technology of silicon lithographs, such as the initial chip designs created by Fujio Masuoka, some of which have already been exposed in the Rensselaer Polytechnic Instititute's Center for Gigascale Integration and also at the MIT Media Lab.

    MUSK explained that these two systems โ€“ the primitive brain that controls your instincts, and the 'thinking part,' respectively โ€“ work well together, and it would extremely unusual to find someone who wished to get rid of one of them.

    Building off of this, he told Y Combinator, 'I think if we can effectively merge with AI, like improving the neural link between the cortex and your digital extension of yourself, which already exists but just has a bandwidth issue, then effectively, you become an AI-human symbiote.'

    This would also solve the 'control problem,' he went on to explain, as it could become so widespread that 'anyone who wants it can have it.'

    'We don't have to worry about some evil dictator AI,' Musk told Y Combinator, 'because we are the AI collectively.

    'That seems like the best outcome I can think of.'

    In November, Elon Musk predicted that the rise of machines in the workplace could soon mean job displacement and a 'universal basic income' for humans.

    The billionaire explained that our options may be limited in the future as automation becomes the norm, and this could even leave people with more time to enjoy their lives.

    Musk said humans will eventually need to achieve symbiosis with 'digital super-intelligence' in order to cope with the advancing world โ€“ but, he warns doing this might be the toughest challenge of all.

    A specie capable of evolution to the next level is one that will survive...we are already the most dangerous predator on the planet in many ways. Now computerizing and mechanizing ourselves is it a way to prosper, perform better and live longer ? Self maintenance or new supply chain management for human parts...whether you want it or not....and that is very sad in certain ways...evolve...or ...disappear. No One will consider you as a endangered specie. Get ready !

    @Fran ๐Ÿ Brizzolis It is unclear what sorts of products Neuralink might create, but people who have had discussions with the company describe a strategy similar to space launch company SpaceX and Tesla, the Journal report said.

    In recent weeks, Neuralink has also hired leading academics in the field, the Journal reported

    Musk previously hinted at the plans online.

    The astonishing revelation came in response to a tweet, asking Musk if he was working on 'neural lace' โ€“ a way of installing computers into the human brain.

    It is not known what the brain chip could be used for, but Musk has previously said that it will be the 'thing that really matters for humanity to achieve symbiosis with machines.'

    #7 Thanks for the interesting challenge @David B. Grinberg At the outset we need to acknowledge that human consciousness is not merely stored data, inputs and smart algorithms. We have, in addition, the 'unquantifiables' of emotion and intuition contributing to a value system. The interface with limb bio-technology is pretty strait forward. But when it comes to decision making drawing on values it becomes a lot more complex. I believe we can transcend emotional barriers with comprehensive data bases and menu's. Could intuition and value systems be derived from ever more data and algorithms? I would propose that the ideal situation is us retaining our human consciousness (warts and all) and interfacing with a smart filter (incorporating comprehensive data bases and algorithms) such that our responses and decision making is 'cleaned' free of negative emotional dampening but incorporating enhancing values. Ultimately this would become a 'symbiotic' learning process for us as well as for the technology.

    Humans think in terms of actionables as well as output.

    Machines reduce actionables to output. It is not a detailed computation but a reduction.

    Till AIs reach a level of absolute certainity with consistency, it will never satisfy human tendency to eliminate risk. Humans will simulate tests till they find one which the AI fails consistently. We will render our own creation as obsolete.

    On the other hand an inversion could be most helpful where the AI assesses our brain and suggests improvements reflective of its own weaknesses.

    I wonder how AI would introspect?

    Appreciate you tagging me @David B. Grinberg. You know I find this area of study and discussion so important and this article keeps me in the loop. It disturbs me that there are highly intelligent people who even consider that humans will become obsolete to AIs. It boggles my mind that we can be so dissociated from the fact that the only reason AIs and technological devices exist and function at all is directly related to the fact that we design these devices and input the data that the devices contain. As well, we plug them into an energy source that we discovered. Why would anyone want to put their lives at risk to compete with these man made devices; in order to increase our "output"?! Anyway, I'll stop ranting now and catch my breath and thank you again, David, for keeping me up to date.

    the rate by which electronic systems transfer impulses from the brain to the limb or prosthetics (or vice versa) lags far beyond natural nerve impulses, especially for complex movements. It's not the electronic technology that limits this transfer of information, Baranauskas wrote in the Frontiers paper, but a lack of understanding of what neuron activity in the brain really mean". This quote from the buzz reflects my opinion dear @David B. Grinberg. We know very little about the neuro social complexity of our brains and this could lead to serious problems.
