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 ) .

 on earth day at end of march 2022 , colleges are planning to hosts conversations exceeding 1 million students - here's a map of some early participants; this process is quite mature with published results from previous years but after mutual participation in glasgow cop26 the  target to be scaled over a million participants is going to take a lot of human energy

i am at chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk washington dc region  and glasgow so i am aware of both sides of the atlantic gap, and since i am now in my 40th year of mainly making a living researching asia's sustainable/youth needs i am happy to try to share what i know where - like everyone i can see pieces of a big jigsaw i am here to learn missing pieces that i can help others connect

if you are wanting to participate as a college mail me chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk and i will intro you to the main organisers; if you have an idea for some other community movement i am exploring various processes eg the social app nextdoor.com and we can work out who is the main coordinator of the conversations you want to progress

I am also the co-author of the 1984 book www.2025report.com which applied 140 years of diaries from the economist (+ nearly 100 more from adam smith) and 30 years of diaries from von neumann (dad norman macrae was both von neumann's biographer and subeditor of entrepreneurial revolution futures at the economist); so in my view we aill cannot understate the urgency of collaboration challenges we have left the younger half of the world to be last chance entrepreneurial resolvers - this goes not only for climate but all 5 primary sdgs as mapped at www.economistwomren.com - somehow or another neumanns tech will either be the solution on the exponential driver of extinction

ideas welcome if you are on youth's side
