HAPPY 2024: in this 74th year since The Economist started mediating futures of brainworking machines clued by the 3 maths greats NET (Neumann, Einstein, Turing) people seem to be chatting about 5 wholly different sorts of AI. 1BAD: The worst tech system designers don't deserve inclusion in human intel at all, and as Hoover's Condoleezza Rice . 2 reports their work is result of 10 compound techs of which Ai is but one. Those worst for world system designs may use media to lie or multiply hate or hack, and to perpetuate tribal wars and increase trade in arms. Sadly bad versions of tv media began in USA early 1960s when it turned out what had been the nation's first major export crop, tobacco, was a killer. Please note for a long time farmers did not know bac was bad: western HIStory is full of ignorances which lawyer-dominated societies then cover up once inconvenient system truths are seen. A second AI ecommerce type (now 25 years exponential development strong) ; this involves ever more powerful algorithms applied to a company's data platform that can be app'd to hollow out community making relatively few people richer and richer, or the reverse. You can test a nation's use of this ai by seeing if efinance has invested in the poorest or historically most disconnected - see eg bangladesh's bklash, one of the most populous digital cash systems . Digital money is far cheaper to distribute let alone to manually account for so power AI offers lots of lessons but whether its good or not depends in part on whether there are enough engineers in gov & public service to see ahead of what needs regulating. There are 2 very good ai's which have only scaled in recent years that certainly dont need regulating by non engineers and one curious ai which was presented to congress in 2018 but which was left to multiply at least 100 variants today the so-called chats or LLMs. Lets look at the 2 very good ai's first because frankly if your community is concerned about any extinction risks these AI may most likely save you, One I call science AI and frankly in the west one team is so far ahead that we should count ourselves lucky that its originator Hassabis has mixed wealth and societal growth. His deep mind merged with google to make wealth but open sourced the 200 million protein databank equivalent to a billion hours of doctorate time- so now's the time for biotech to save humanity if it ever does. Alongside this the second very good AI graviates around Fei-Fei Li) in developing 20 million imagenet database so that annual competitions training computers to see 20000 of the most everyday sights we humans view around the world including things and life-forms such as nature's plants and animals. Today, students no longer need to go back to 0.1 programming to ask computer about any of these objects; nor do robots or and autonomous vehicles - see fei-fei li's book worlds i see which is published in melinda gates Entrepreneurial Revolution of girl empowerment
ED , VN Hypothesis: in 21st C brainworking worlds how people's times & data are spent is foundational to place's community health, energy and so natural capacity to grow/destroy wealth -thus species will depend on whether 1000 mother tongue language model mediates intelligence/maths so all communities cooperatively celebrate lifetimes and diversity's deep data ) .

 Death of over-standardised nations teachers students -wherever practice knowhow webs are king

 If you are a parent its important you seize one of these 10 wats of understanding this wicked problem even if you dislike me for mentioning other ways. Alumni of the mathematical greats 9eg v neuman , eistein) have been stuying this since 1945 or earlier; leaders of all kinds have had a chnace to mediate this since 1984. These are rather long periods of time to play ignorant however inclovenient the chalenge of practice webbing is.

1 if we race to extinguishing our childrens generation then lets face it: that will be an education systems eroor.s We have all the 8 billion human brains, all the artificial intel, all the naturale resoufecs needed to prevent extinction but as yet not the adminstration nor the e,diation systems

2 Inconveneiently the reason why nation tecaher or student fails is not because of what other nations do- its because of your system, your communities raccing towards loss of sustainability be this because nature or man's violence wipes them out. Ulitimately as astronaut ron garamn says when he looked down from sapce, he saw mother earth cryong out for peoples to linkin higher levels of cooperation. Its not juts atsronauts who belive this. In London the royal societies which King Charles has asked to debate futures with the royal geo society get this as doed the nation's leading science university which happens to be on a neighboring capus to the royal geo society.

3 Back in 2016 at the Un a stratge thing happened. SA group of educatirs were the first to reveiw their practice's goal and to declare this is unachevable in any nation unless tech leads education as well as education leads tech and both are led by pecatices relevant to each of the sustainability goal chalenges. What happened is a framweork that any pace gov (national , regional or meta-) can now value. There are 2 ed components - redesiging youth training and capacity building of elders. there are 2 tech conponents- one whoch geneva started to hub in 1965 and the other which has since 2018 has become the most popular educaytion zoom on the planet : AIforSDGs. If you let the time eteachers and students spend exploring the future intercations of these 4 drivers- you arrive at 2 new stanadrds of gov2.0 congfigured round valuing public goods and the expoentials of systemic trust/safety. WE could call these professioan innocations to web into the educational and tech innovations

4 Or you can take a moral view by medisting all faiths and culrures. Are they designed around all humans righs and inclusion or not? Whilst it is an oversimplification - i beleive we can look back at history and note tiems and places where people did not amister equality : of gender, of sjin color, or of golden rule belief system. Let's take the USA for exsmple. So we could call tese the new profesisonal/hippovratic oaths - pieces 7/8 of UN2.But here we need to address an inconveneient truth starting with the most poiwerful nation all the way down to the olaces that are most disconnecetd with power over earth

In oprcatical terms most americans can dee there is one democracy for what texan legislkatirs demand and a an inferoir democracy for ll the rest of us. This is because huisr=torically america was united in growth becaose of 3 texan energies: carbon, arms and chaunism if not racism. These were all reimnforned by the way America owning tyhe west cioast depended hostorically on how texans treaded mexicans. To deney that the whole supreme court series of amendemnst uts texan rules first is ifnorant. The catch 22 is no nation can sustain relationship with other peopels in 21st c by ruling over gun power, oil power and chauviism/racism.

^ one way round all of teh above problems is to ipen uo the un university and training systems to every places coleges and education. After all all learning systems now need to co-examine each other on sustainability purspoes. And this brings us to another chalenge - what has the prrninting of paper money got to do with the futures parents or yoytof sustainability want. The answer is they are currently negatively correlated because they do not value livelihoods at the comunity level- they only value what the world biggest elast sustainable systems don. Which is why if the enxt 10 yeras is to sucessfully mediate the adgs it will alsoi need to ceelbrate massive decenetralisation of how money is dusytributed

$ Unfortunatly whta i would rather dodesigning next 10 yeras of webs  to celebrate empoiwering younger half of teh workd knowhow connectiosn of partoicular pracices from health service to arts, from nutrition to loving ecah other ios all but impossible to make meaningful if enough of the elder generation dont  

Which world calss das we choose to masively interconnecyt forst may be cricuaila;

hopw about daos of

human kindenss or loveq

of education

of leath

of maths

of nature

of arts

In all cases how do we maximise the blending of huamn and tech (ie artificial ai) and teh depth of data (maths mapping)

I realise this asks for as big leap- but should the royal societs that began the english mindset have a go first- would this mean increasing bank of england and poeople of england buting bitcoin at say whebner it goes under 20K dolars; and replicating what london royal societies often discuss in evening meetings into every svchooll district or ever community skils training web/ In a sense English Empire unbalancing of natural and human resources back from 1500-1950 merits we who spaek englisk to connect the new money and the enw educatuion as entrepreneurual reovolution leaders not laggard. Any maybe other monarchies most want to reconcile theri empire pasts eg netherlands and japan will join in a new trading area at leaats of the intamgibles and sustainability drivers which are nothing much to do about how world trade blocks have been operating.All of thisd spomes back to how wise educatirs ta the un ny were to go marry 3 of geneva's leading roles tech since 1865, trade since the elague of nations, helath since the internatioan redcross prepped the ground for genva being where the Un;s WHO revolves round

Perhaps knowledge empires have always nbeen a sborderless asd the human spiurit itself- is this racce back to belief in all of out childtrens intercnnecetd futures woirth it to you?

Towards a Coalition for Action on Digital Public Resources

for Education

UNICEF, Executive Office of the Secretary-General, Government of Singapore,

EdTech Hub, UNESCO, AT4 Members

The meeting is a deep dive into the recommendation of the Digital Learning

TES background paper on the need for free, high quality digital learning

resources. The main objective of the meeting is to determine the way forward

for a ‘Coalition for Action’ on Digital Public Resources for Education: moving

from policy and plans to implementation, and addressing key bottlenecks that

have hindered progress thus far.

This meeting is a deep dive into the recommendation of the Digital Learning

TES background paper on the need for free, high quality digital learning

resources. The main objective of the meeting is to determine the way forward

for a ‘Coalition for Action’ on Digital Public Resources for Education, moving

from policy and plans to implementation, and addressing key bottlenecks that

have hindered progress thus far. Digital technologies in education can

contribute to wider systemic efforts to improve learning for all and help address

the learning crisis, which has been greatly exacerbated by the pandemic.

Digital public resources for education in particular can decrease the cost of

education, and catalyse more equitable, collaborative and effective approaches

to teaching and learning. However, while much progress has been made over

the past 20 years towards advancing this agenda, huge gaps remain - for

example, the dearth of freely accessible, public educational resources such as

reading books or videos in most of the world’s languages, and tools which

promote more active and collaborative teaching, learning and problem-solving.


Establish a Coalition for Action on Digital Public Resources for Education,

to move from policy to action and implementation, and address the key

bottlenecks that have hindered progress. This Coalition will include

Champion Countries, as well as international organisations and experts

working in this area.

Reflect on progress to date, and discuss how the key bottlenecks can be

addressed. This would build upon previous work including the international

standard-setting instruments adopted by UN agencies and Member States.

Identify a set of realistic goals for Digital Public Resources. How can we

collaborate to address the gap in availability of openly licensed, high

quality literacy, numeracy and science resources across different

languages, as well as collaborative learning and teaching tools?
