intro’d to Kai-Fu here:
4 min – (in regard to ai).. we’re now in the era of implementation.. where what really matters is execution, product quality, speed, and data..t
what if all that matters .. first.. is getting the right/legit data..ie: self-talk as data
because.. mufleh humanity law: we have seen advances in every aspect of our lives except our humanity – Luma Mufleh
and that’s where china comes in..ie: 996.. competitive.. in such a tragic environ.. forced to make things better.. ie: china almost cashless.. because of very robust techs built..
6 min -and china market is enormous.. gives chance to collect huge amount of data.. rocket fuel for ai engine.. so have leaped ahead
not if wrong data.. ie: data from whales in sea world
begs we use self-talk as data
w us leading era of discovery and china leading era of implementation.. dual engine of two super powers working together to drive the fastest revolution in tech we’ve ever seen.. this will bring tremendous wealth.. 16 trillion dollars added gdp by 2030
it will also bring immense challenges w job replacements.. ai completely replaces jobs.. only creative jobs are protected.. ai can optimize.. but not create
9 min – worse than loss of jobs is loss of meaning.. work ethic because brainwashed into thinking work is the reason we exist.. 996 is obsession w work..
knowing i may only have a few months to live helped me see how foolish to base my entire self worth on how hard i worked.. and the accomplishments.. my priorities were out of order
10 min – regrets of people – didn’t spend enough time w loved ones.. and spread their love
now i work 995.. new form of life
11 min – facing death helped me change my life but also helped me see way ai could impact and coexist w mankind.. why we exist is love..
12 min – compassion, care, love.. do you not think we’ll need more compassion to help people thru this transition.. 10 times more teachers to help children find way to thrive in world.. .. make labors of love into careers.. let elderly accompaniment or homeschooling become careers as well..
14 min – there you have it.. a blueprint of coexistence between humans and ai.. ai is serendipity..t
it (ai) is here to liberate us from routine jobs and it is here to remind us what it is that makes us human.. so let us choose to embrace ai and to love one another
we get that from an undisturbed ecosystem
