>3/18 24: Similarities between Electronic Computers and the Human Brain: Thank you Jensen Huang for best week of Learning since John Von Neumann shared with The Economist 1956 notes Computer & The Brain
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
EW::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 ) .

urgent cooperations latest post 5/12/23

in the terrifying year of 2001, I am only aware of one good thing (tell us more if you have other stories;

steve jobs family hosted a dinner party and asked fazle abed who had helped village women design aid 2.0 and prevent bangladesh nation building from being a disaster case- how can your knowhow go global- abed said what if i start a global poverty cooperation university especially aimed at uniting female graduate alumni; steve said what if I design a university in a mobile phone; 22 years on what can you help youth ambaasdors to sdgs remap wherever most urgent local challenges emerge 

issued 5/12/23

can women empowerment and edetech networks out of middle east and across asia help sudan now!

background 15 years ago w3e started ctalaoguing mooc of 30 most scaleable women empowerment cooperations and future sdgs mapping with Bangladesh's main designers of vilage women empowerment; we found that all over asia from middle east to singapor to hong kong and vatious pan-asian e-solutions had ideas different from west in community depth

hence we are issuing this first of series of how to help sudan calls through dubai education networks as well as handover of dubai expo to osaka - please help us if we can tailor a coopreation call around any other asian superciuty fir sdgs

Dear Dubai friends please could I intro you to Abubakr. I have known /trusted Abubakr as an outstanding youth futures ambassador for about 5 years. Abubakr has spent most of the last 8 years searching Dubal and Asia for teenage skills solutions relevant to his home country Sudan's education 15 up. Initially this was part of UK commonwealth program on 21st C livelihoods. Whilst he had been mainly back in Sudan the last 18 months, by coincidence he was in Dubai when the Sudan disaster began, and so is in Dubai. I was first introduced to him about a year before the Dubai Expo.  Graduate journalists and I I have been studying work of Fazle Abed in Bangladesh (16 trips) since my father Norman of The Economist died in 2010. The Japan Ambassador to Bangladesh kindly hosted 2 dinner brainstorming events with Fazle Abed and about 40 civil society members in Dhaka 2011. Back in 1984 dad and I had written 2025 report https://www.mattridley.co.uk/blog/death-of-a-great-optimist/ believing ai, women empowerment and education was the only way what we now call sdgs would be achievable. I had found Gulf cities ever more critical  to the future of women empowerment partners of Abed both  in Qatar with Sheika Moza as inaugural Wise laureate and until 2018 the official UN hub of 40 countries interested i refugee education and education in emergencies journalised out of NYU, Then through Abed's cashless banking Dubai's Legatum bank had long supported the Quadir family and their MIT fintech for poor innovations who were first to bring mobile to Bangladesh 1995 and had become with George Soros And Gates  Abed's cashless banking partner and Abdul Latif Jameel (including MIT poverty lab) as well as my Scottish friends connections including Gordon Brown through Yunus and 15 years of relationships with Adam Smith scholars who chose to host my father's archives at Glasgow University.

Dear Dubiai friends just to ask you:  do you or anyone have time to exchange ideas on what next. As well as any ways the two of you might locally make connections https://us02web.zoom.us/j/7696477322 I will be hosing a series of zooms 9am new york time starting with one on Monday . In the event anyone might be interested please relay this message.

On parallel matter I have been attending UN briefings on the next 3 UNGA - this september a debrief on why every sdgs is stuck; next year this global forum process https://ggin.stimson.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/11/Global-Futures-Forum-2023-Program.pdf  ; 2025 with new world bank Mastercard's Mr Banga Guterres is hoping that the whole of https://unsceb.org/board-members will be united in demanding multilateral2.0 in line with Un tech envoy https://www.un.org/techenvoy/content/ongoing-work and especially transformational AI. Over last 13 years since my family sampled 2000 of muhammad Yunus social business book we now have about 20 quite influential new york friends looking at various ways including hong kong's www.beingai.com how can un sdg (women kindness) avatars take up role humanoid sophia used to mediate;  the 6000 educators for the future www.ed3dao.com run out of New York to help with these next 2 college year and ITU awards in 6 weeks to 34 sdgs storytellers on web3 : 2 per sdg http://metaverseprize.org- All can converge with UN hq global forum debrief i attended 6 weeks ago was at same time as sdg6 water summit where we have connections through unhabitat and the annual update of unwomen. So while Sudan and which neighbors are going to respond who is this months urgent exchange would always aim to maximise new yorker cooperations if Dubai Cares Diary or Expo connections are linking in through New York. Because my father was awarded Japan Emperors main international award order of rising sun I am very interested in any handover between dubai and osaka expos and how in all these ways the next 27 months may map many tipping points for better or for worse. I am finishing last publication of 2025 report begun 1984 connecting my fathers previous 33 yeras of research as Von Neumann Biographer. The reasons why we still see ai and education as milennials best last chance are being logged at www.economistlearning.com

  1. In brainstorming, I may have deviated off course from directly finding first app or richard's https://pseudo-nym.com/nymsms-and-pseudo-identities/ - if so pls ignore. Since 2008 when my family first sampled 2000 muhammad yunus books (which started 16 trips to bangladesh watching yunus networks destroyed and greenwashing spoil womens deepest cooperation flow and sdgs advancement- dream to connect 100 female future cooperation entrepreneurs aged 15 to 25 whenever I first saw themf (ie some now mid 30s - see footnote case of audrey cheng ) TO map/linkin sdgs networks in ways that separate alumni networks cannot. I have probably identified and then lost contact with about 40- notably in artistic areas I am not best at finding mentors. Also vision a common problem. The edgiest community deep dynamics they wanted to link can reputationally conflict with conventional academics or start up pitches or first employers or more scarily peace in conflicted places. I was just wondering whether giving them the chance of a second identity was what might have been the secret sauce. Also if deigning metaverse kindness is the immediate future challenge as hk friends like www.beingai.com believe then digital identity in avatar world is prime time (this is 15 years beyond origin of "second life" especially among gamers who use multiple ids) .Apologies probably gone off script! .......................footonte Case of Audrey Cheng - now partnership director of discord- her coding schools arguably most exciting/scalable youth entrepreneur to present at jim kim youth summits
