I just finished listening to Monica Lewinisky’s Ted Talk on the price of shame. You can also listen to it here: The Price of Shame
A few days ago I read an article about Steve Wozniak’s (Steve Jobs best friend, ex-best friend, best friend) fears about artificial intelligence (AI), i.e. The Future of AI is 'Scary and Very Bad for People'
I’ve been mulling that over in my mind. That article wasn’t the first such article I’ve browsed. Stephen Hawking a physicist and the subject of the move The Theory of Everything (which I haven't seen) also has dire predictions concerning the proliferation of AI. But I’ve been thinking. Compassion, benevolence, generosity. These qualities require intelligence. They require looking beyond the instant gratification of bullying, dissent into destructive envy, violence resolution, and advertising-fueled consumption. Could AI advance the trajectory of a universal wisdom that our collective emotional-social-personal human psyches have not been able to achieve to date? Could AI usher in a brighter future?
