4th industrial revolution – and what it means to be human.. and who gets to decide

8 min – hope to remove mutations from entire human species – Jennifer Doudna

10 min – tech – a place to do things that we can’t do alone – Justine Cassell – bringing back skills of 2nd revolution ie: empathy, collab, et al..

11 min  – on tech to spur us to curiosity .. in the classroom – Justine

why in the classroom?

13 min – on regulatory ness… we have to talk to each other.. who gets to decide… like davos community… great example.. of talking to each other.. Henry T. Greely… we now have power to change every single genome.. regulatory side not ready for that

perhaps getting in way and exclusive. we can do better

17 min – distinction on what to be human – and essential part of our humanity is to always extent that.. what is ness – Angela Hobbs – if staying human we need.. ie: staying curious…  then fine.. if not..  we need to have convos.. even through school years.. of what it means to be flourishing life..

so .. back to henry – and davos as an example of great convo.. but who there is talking outside of the school day/years..?

24 min – on ai saying… making autonomous machines.. like us.. but.. we are not autonomous.. we are interdependent.. – Justine Cassell

27 min – impact of computer on human beings..we have tech.. but not knowledge to know the genome yet – Jennifer

28 min  – each transition in brain – isn’t a transitor.. it’s a computer.. so complex.. – Henry… i think you’re talking.. for a full understanding of the human brain – a century or more..

so to vinay – reverse complexity

30 min – how to teach selves as human – to stick to own values – Amira Yahyaoui

31 min – when you are listened to everywhere.. doesn’t that change your life.. – Klaus Schwab

depends .. if we have ps open and something for everyone to do et al..

32 min – on it being an illusion… we’re being watched more now.. not too long ago.. many more felt watched all the time by god.. in bedroom, in soul.. i think we have more privacy now.. – Angela Hobbs

34 min – on us worrying more about someone selling us something because they read our email.. or eternal damnation.. – Justine Cassell

36 min – what’s human is not the structure.. it’s what inside – Henry – depends on how we’re taught.. it’s a process.. important that we have teachers/robots.. to teach children what it is to be human

whoa.. – perhaps we need to be learning rom 5 yr olds.. what it means to be human.. everyday. as the day.

38 min – interplay between genetics we inherit and environment we find outselves in – Jennifer

42 min – on comparison with people we don’t see as human.. that we judge what is human.. (ie: computer, women, migrants).. i’d rather that comparison go away.. and each reflects to own purpose – Justine Cassell

48 min – a lot of what makes us human comes from our brain chemistry – Jennifer

52 min – if we all create self-awareness…. – Klaus Schwab

Our economic model is broken – so how can we fix it? wef.ch/1q8ACcf #climatechange pic.twitter.com/MFx07rw16a

The challenge of industrial transformation is both an imperative and an opportunity.

We know there are jobs in action on climate, millions of jobs. With infrastructure investment projected to be $90 trillion in the next 15 years to 2030. This means jobs.

There are more jobs in construction, manufacturing, transport and services as we green every industry and build the mega cities that will accommodate population growth. There are more jobs in agriculture and reforestation.

Already the U.S. solar industry is creating jobs twenty times faster than the overall economy while the world’s largest renewable energy job market is in China, with 3.4 million working in the industry. And in Germany, 370,000 people are employed in renewable energy, the largest number in Europe.

whoa… and we’re mising it.. by focusing on jobs/employment

[..]

Caring is what makes us human and with a refugee crisis that is greater than at any time since World War II we turn our backs on people fleeing conflict or economic desperation. And we haven’t seen the fist wave of climate refugees ye

[..]

The environment, stabilizing the climate, needs urgent attention from all of us.

Reducing inequality and stabilizing the global economy requires us to raise wages, restore social protection and eliminate inequality for and barriers to women’s participation in the labour market but to realise both inclusive growth and a stable climate integrated systems change is urgent.

crazy assumptions.. we can do better

The real potential for progress lies in the momentum being generated by increasing numbers of business leaders and investors, union and civil society. Over 1,000 major companies have signaled their support for carbon pricing. Policymakers have no excuse not to move forward on adopting a realistic price and a percentage could be directed to a ‘just transition’ fund to build trust in vulnerable communities.

the real potential for progress..?

If we don’t pick up the pace, we could lose the battle against poverty and inequality and face increased social division that is already eating at the heart of stable democracies and our communities. We could lose the fight against climate change with even more horrendous consequences for the human species.

Economic and environmental sustainability is without any doubt now a question of what future we want for humanity.

pick up the pace..? or slow it down..

This is how we can tackle global educational inequalities https://t.co/fqmhhy8Yza https://t.co/hixPzJzP0p(http://twitter.com/wef/status/779652105783091201?s=17)

This commission is committed to the fourth United Nations Sustainable Development Goal, which aims, by 2030, to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.”
what if ensuring inclusive/equitable quality ed.. (as we now practice it) is counter to promoting lifelong learning opps for all
And education has long-term societal benefits: aside from increased political engagement, educated children contribute intellectual capital and pursue entrepreneurial opportunities when they grow up, boosting economic growth.
nice.. humanity.. all about the money/measuring

Tackling the education challenge needs to start from two principles embedded in the goal.

First, “for all” means that we must focus on the children who have been left behind. …….

Second, “quality”: Education must be effective, so that children actually learn.

perhaps..what we’re calling barriers to learning aren’t the barriers… because what we’re calling the basics.. aren’t basic..

a nother way.. to facil 7 bill curiosities.. not just falsely strive for Econ growth

Upholding these two principles will require increased investment. ….

rinse and repeat

This will require increased revenue from taxation and stronger efforts to collect what’s owed.

oy

Fixing education investment requires action in two key areas.

so our focus is the measure.. the math,.. of something.. this is not even naturally human…ie: measuring transactions…

humanity… becomes the symbol.. that’s lost it’s meaning..

of math and men ness

push for partnerships between government and business to boost domestic resources for education, and eliminate illicit capital flows that deprive governments of the means to fund it, such as tax evasion and money laundering across national borders.

who’s to say what money laundering is…ie: Ed investment as laundering…no?

so distracted.. from us

The education commission will have succeeded if we are able to leverage the funding and political will to ensure that every child learns,

yeah… let’s perpetuate this voluntary compliance for profit
rinse repeat

@monk51295 @cblack__ @drvandanashiva “unlock potential” WEF-style cd. mean “to apply extractive tech & and send the value somewhere else”

@cblack

@johnthackara @monk51295 @drvandanashiva This model of claiming to save the poor by profiting the rich is what has gotten us where we are.
