    The ultimate truth will be the full spectrum. Will there be people who use AI for nefarious purposes? Of course. Will there be people who use it for good? Of course. The question you have to ask yourself is who much do you want to interact with it and also home much will you have to interact with it.

    Many thanks for sharing your important insights on this timely topic, I appreciate your valuable feedback (as always) @stephan metral ๐Ÿ Innovative Brand Ambassador @Ian Weinberg @Jan ๐Ÿ Barbosa @Maite Barroso Del Cerro.
    I likewise agree that the most prudent option is to proceed with due diligence and cautious optimism. This is because any new and evolving technology carries with it inherent risks, as well as potential rewards. AI has it's positives and negatives. However, there appears to be disagreement about whether the negatives outweigh the positives, or vice versa at this fluid point in time.
    Ultimately, the key is to maximize the positive and minimize the negative. Thus, by this standard I believe Elon Musk and those who share his views are taking the correct approach. It's better to move forward incrementally with baby steps than to inadvertently run off a steep cliff due to overzealous speeding.
    Any thoughts on this topic @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee?

    I agree with @stephan metral ๐Ÿ Innovative Brand Ambassador I'm very wary about Zuckerberg and what he's capable of doing with AI. He's already shown himself to be committed to big data for financial gain at the expense of the individual human element. Musk on the other hand has shown his sensitivity for environmental and human issues. At the end of the day we need to re-connect with our humaness and integrate AI at this level. In this regard I trust Musk's cautionary over Zuckerberg's drive to subordinating humanity to big data and the buck.

    Kudos on an excellent read, Larry. I think a lot of people today are concerned about how AI will affect their jobs and future. You provide prudent advice, important insights and astute analysis on this topic (as usual). I would just add a couple of other revolutionary developments to the list of what will shape the Fourth Industrial Revolution: quantum computing and nanotechnology, both of which will drive disruptive innovation and mold the future.
    FYI - I'm tweeting this for #TuesdayMotivation and pinning on my Twitter home page for retweets at https://twitter.com/DBGrinberg (and sharing in several hives). I also encourage you to share the video in the new hive of @stephan metral ๐Ÿ Innovative Brand Ambassador: "My beBee TV".

    The French have a saying, "plus รงa change, plus c'est la mรชme chose" Change is not a new process. It has always been with us. The difference in today's world is twofold: the pace and the number of areas included. Still it is change and most humans actually adapt well to it...when they think about it. So this article is apropos. It makes us think about the possibility of change in our jobs and all the reasons that may occur. It is a clarion call to think about how you confront the future. Well done, Mr. Boyer

    #13 You're definitely right about it being a systemic issue @Zacharias ๐Ÿ Voulgaris. AI will touch us all in some way, so it's best to have at least some understanding of it.
    Zacharias ๐Ÿ Voulgaris
    24/07/2017 #13 Zacharias ๐Ÿ Voulgaris
    I think AI's impact in the job market is a systemic issue. Even if you are left unharmed by what happens, chances are that your vendors or your clients will not be unaffected, leading to a new set of dynamics for your business processes. Perhaps this needs to be incorporated in the SWOT analysis too.

    Even if machines may not require someone to maintain them, they will require someone to program them and debug them when they screw up. So, some A.I. knowledge may go a long way, in the years to come. So, things may not be that bad after all...

    24/07/2017 #10 Susan ๐Ÿ Rooks, the Grammar Goddess
    Yes, @Larry Boyer, ๐Ÿ Brand Ambassador, the future is indeed coming. It's always been coming, but year after year, this old Boomer Broad has seen it coming faster and faster. I think that's what it's all about, at least for a lot of us. We barely have time to learn THIS because THIS++ and THAT+++ are just around the corner!

    The other issue to me is awareness. When I was growing up in the '50s, news came in print and on TV, with the likes of Walter Cronkite and other giants of the early TV eras. The hysteria wasn't as easy to find; a speaker's words weren't spread before they'd even finished speaking as they can be now with Tweets.

    All these changes feel strong, harsher, harder -- more emotional -- because we aren't getting much time to digest them, live with them, learn from them before the next wave hits. And the news about them is everywhere; there's no escaping it even if we want to (unless we unplug and go live in a remote place -- are there still any left?).

    So I appreciate you always keeping us updated on the facts and how we need to consider our own tomorrows that will surely look different from anything we've known before.

    #4 You are spot on @Harvey Lloyd. It's all about how it will impact the economy of one. For some it there will a direct impact of a job loss, others will get jobs that didn't exist before. The big one to watch for is one something comes sideways and destroys the company you work for or weakens it. Will Tesla make enough of a dent in car sales to close a major brand, for example.

    You are an economy of one. Many years ago i heard this statement and it stuck. Your strategies of success must meet your needs within your economy.

    In this days it was customary to get the gold watch after many years of service.

    I dont think things have changed much economically when considering an economy of one.

    AI is disruptive not necessarily at the economy of one level but rather at the basic economic level. Machines, software or VR do not pay taxes, join the community nor do they delineate right and wrong. The motivation for AI has grown from bad economic policy and consumerism.

    We are creating a class of people who are left behind. I sense this is different than past revolutions of economy. In the past the government was not so deeply imbedded with the way of life, economically. People and the government understood the concept of the economy of one.

    I am not against AI nor afraid of its growth, but this transition will fail if the consumer dies along the way.

    There's a more hopeful take on the future of AI by an AI engineer who had to face a life-threatening lymphoma to realize what was really important in his life...love and his family, which a robot simply can't comprehend. It was in Wired Magazine's newsletter this morning.

    Michio Kaku makes a good case against AI going all HAL 9000 on us in his book "The Future of the Mind". Anyone else get into neuroscience at all? I wonder if it may be almost impossible for AI/robots to completely replace us...or take over the world...because maybe there's an element to our 'wetware' that may never be replicated in AI. Hell, scientists can't even agree on what 'consciousness' is or define it to everyone's agreement, As Wired's cancer survivor points out, if the human had beaten AlphaGO he would have felt a wild range of emotions and pride; the computer beat him and didn't care. Deep Blue beat Kasparov and it didn't care either; Kasparov was deeply affected by losing and would have been deeply affected had he beaten it. I'm also not convinced robots & AI will ever replace *all* jobs, or at least as many as predicted, because I've been hearing the predictions since I was in high school (over 35 years ago now) of how they're going to do all the work and we'll live lives of leisure. Hasn't happened yet and *still* no one can answer the question I had when I was 18 or 19: "And how are we going to live these lives of leisure if we're not getting paid anything? How will that economy work?"

    #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.

    Never fear @Deb๐Ÿ Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee Technology will never replace the human brain nor this thing called 'consciousness' Technology may enhance the linear, data aspects, some of the reasoning capability and provide algorithms to diminish destructive/limiting beliefs, but it is unlikely to ever replicate the creativity, sensitivity, emotions and awe of our right hemispheres.

    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.

    Also (as usual) I accidentally inverted the wisdom of the great developmental psychologist -- G. Stanley Hall. It should read:

    #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.

    @Sara Jacobovici this is the exact fear i have in considering the path we are on. We will in some way calculate this uniquness and attempt to replicate.

    This uniqueness is a mathematical loop, but subconsciously humans can break the loop. Can AI?

    Without the introduction of new data from the stream then the loop continues, entering AI into a default mode. The default mode changes as the AI learns. Can AI through interations gather from the right streams to perfect the next default mode? Close

    @Fabio Marzocca, after reading your post I have come to the realization that you have taken a complex issue and articulated it perfectly. The irony that exists is that the very creators of AI are not conscious of the fact that is the unique human capacity of abstraction and creativity, the ability to imagine, that has allowed them to produce their technological devices. Their devices may be faster, cleaner and last longer than humans but will never be able to contribute to the world which produced them. Any world of AI will be that; artificial and virtual, but not human. The mark of a truly successful product is one that transcends its function; otherwise it is just an object. I came across this quote by Soren Kierkegaard that I feel reinforces the fact that humans can never be replaced by mechanical and technologically advanced devices. "The paradox is really the pathos of intellectual life and just as only great souls are exposed to passions it is only the great thinker who is exposed to what I call paradoxes, which are nothing else than grandiose thoughts in embryo."

    Thank you Fabio for this most inspiring and important discussion. You are so correct, mankind is striving to re-create that which it has tended to become - a linear algorithm. It has become too difficult and inconvenient to engage with a multi-faceted consciousness and so we have devolved the lowest common denominator - suppress negative emotions, distill and standardize ethics, ignore the big questions (what is the purpose of it all etc) and blindly follow the collective (the 'market forces'). This should be easy to re-create. But what of the highest attributes of mankind - art, music (both incorporating the full octaves of emotion), philosophy, ideation and innovation (incorporating consciousness at its most eloquent)? Well there won't be any challenge to re-packaging this in AI creations because there will no longer be awareness or appreciation of its existence. Those of us who have placed great value on these finer aspects of consciousness/life will become extinct with them - natural selection!

    Great read @Fabio Marzocca, AI is a goal of our technology leading edge companies. Like the bio-firms seeking to alter DNA the repercussions can't be known. We will more than likely have to experience and recover from the outcomes.

    AI>Humans=Consumerism is not a good formula. I enjoy the Google model of learning but is it not making a large part of the educational paradigm antiquated? What becomes of these displaced workers?

    I am for technology but also realize our current barter system of time/intelligence for money will have to evolve in order for AI to displace workers or population growth will have to change to accommodate the need for less humans within the barter system.

    @Fabio Marzocca, you have the courage and insight to ask the most important and timely questions. I need to read your work at least 2 more times to attempt a response, for the single purpose of engagement. This is a topic that needs to be thought about and discussed. On social media, we focus on our personal lives and our professional lives (with beBee providing a means to bridge the 2 ). We are not conscious enough that a topic such as yours needs to transcend the personal impact of the weak AI or the professional consideration of AI as business research and development and product efficiency and sales, but on the bigger picture, the container of what holds all of this; our physical world and humanity. "Philosophy" is not a separate exercise left to individuals who sit and think and abstractly engage in the impracticable aspects of our lives. Philosophy is the language and means through which to develop potential for growth or lead to extinction; not because the AIs will be smarter or more creative (which they can not be) but because we humans will cease utilizing our intelligence and creativity. It doesn't have to be doom and gloom, just conscience awareness. Thank you Fabio. I look forward to returning to this discussion.
