Re: Fantastic Idea
@mpouraryan, I am with  you.  In order to make sustainable progress, it has to be balanced and advance the quality of life, economics, advance of science AND the opportunity for humans to succeed.

I am actually working with Smarter Cities in bringing together public/private economic partnerships and when you involve all the stakeholders it does work.  Failure to balance the interests will result in a win/lose game.

Note:  Good news for HI - even though AlphaGo won the championship (best 3-5) they are still playing the final two games and Lee won Game #4 yesterday.  He says he won by incorporating a new "variable" that AlphaGo was prepared for.  So see, Human  Intelligence is still needed!

Re: Fantastic Idea
What you underscore is why we have to encourage initiatives such as smart cities and be able to think through and embrace iOT in a major way in order to be able to make sure that all enjoy the fruits of this transformation that we have been witness to especially as we celebrate PI Day and all the possiblities it represents.

Re: Fantastic Idea
@vnewman, absolutely - great points - we are in good company.

Machines that just compounds tactical knowledge would be unpredictable.  They are exceptional at processing, but what are they processing and why?  That's why we humans need to keep our hands on the controls, right?  Reasoning and critical thinking, integrity, and morals still need to rule.

Re: Fantastic Idea
@mpouraryan, you raise another excellent "reality" check.  As we have experienced with industrialization of the developed nations, the growing disparity creates problems and deepens the divide between the haves and the have-nots.

As we are now increasingly a global economy, we are bounded by the progress in both undeveloped nations as well as the developed nations.  We will not truly make sustainable progress if we lose sight of this fact.

Note:  Another point for human intelligence!

Re: Fantastic Idea
Thanks @DHaggar--I am aware of his work.   But as we are becoming digitized, we also need to see how this digitization will continue to have impact beyond the shores of the United States--It is critical for us because we have to have a World View of it because more than half the World continues to be left behind.

Re: Fantastic Idea
@mpouraryan, very true.  Actually there is some excellent leadership in this area about the reality of automation of work and replacement for humans with MIT.  Thomas Davenport, with Boston University, has studied the man vs. machine for a number of years and is now "thoughtfully" promoting the right mix - i.e., augmentation, etc.  So I take comfort in knowing that thoughtful analysis is going into finding the right fit.

Clearly there will be advocates on both sides - for AI and against AI - I believe AI is an excellent tool to be properly combined with HI.  But we will have to learn new ways.

So we are not totally alone!

Re: Fantastic Idea
We have to be careful--the problem is that we seem to forget this very fact especially as we are looking at this notion of the "post work economy" and the enthusiasm for automation that seems to be the order of the day.   I have no choice but to be optimistic despite such developments.
