Rapid advancement in science and technology promise to disrupt the digital systems of our day, creating entirely new sources of value.
The number of potentially valuable building blocks is exploding around the world, and the possibilities are multiplying like never before.
The building blocks to both enhance and/or diminish humanity are there – it’s a question of how we as a society manage this exponential world.
As with everything in life, our path forward requires balance: enabling the good, while mitigating the risk of unintended consequences.
In the context of human history, we could very well be entering the third tipping point: from an industrial to an automated society.
Will machines eventually outsmart us at all tasks, replacing humans on the job market and perhaps altogether?
Why do Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, and Bill Gates fear AI and express concern that it may be a threat to humanity’s survival?
The potential for another clustering of great inventions exists, and a focus on purpose and well-being might just get us there.
AI takes the knowledge explosion to its pinnacle. Combined with machines and biotechnology, it will alter what it means to be human.
We must realize the socially constructive benefits of exponential technology, while mitigating the risk of unintended consequences.
