Future of humanity and artificial intelligence: futurist speaker Gerd Leonhard

Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Humanity
Work, play, privacy, communication, finance, war, and dating: algorithms and the machines that run them have upended them all. Will artificial intelligence become as ubiquitous as electricity? Is there any industry AI won't touch? Will AI tend to steal jobs and exacerbate income inequalities, or create new jobs and amplify human abilities at work -- or, both? How can the global population adjust to the changes ushered in by artificial intelligence and its capabilities? In light of these changes, how will we remake work, education, and community? Can we build it better than we did before?

The Future of Humanity, Malcolm Gladwell
The world has changed fundamentally, according to the author Malcolm Gladwell, from one in which problems are puzzles to one in which they are, instead, mysteries. Using terminology developed by an intelligence official, Gregory Treverton, Gladwell said this distinction often centres on the amount of information available. In the past it was often about having too little data – a puzzle; in today's world too much data is more likely to be the issue – a mystery. To take education as an example, today a wealth of data on how teachers perform is available, including on such complex is-sues as how a particular teacher's methods interact with the capabilities of an individual student. Similar issues affect fields as diverse as defense and health care. This places challenges on institutions such as governments, because many developed their ways of operating in the 19th or even the 18th century. They are equipped to solve puzzles, not mysteries.

 

Imagining the Future: The Transformation of Humanity | Peter Diamandis | TEDxLA
In this landmark talk, Peter Diamandis shares how we are rapidly heading towards a human-scale transformation, the next evolutionary step into what he calls a “Meta-Intelligence,” a future in which we are all highly connected -- brain to brain via the cloud -- sharing thoughts, knowledge and actions. He highlights the 4 driving forces as well as the 4 steps that is transforming humanity.
