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 ) .

EconomistFuture.com Economistwomen.com - did adults get half a century of homework right for millennials to be sustainable?

Friends & family at The Economist, Scotland, Other far North isles eg Japan, and elsewhere have travelled a long and winding entrepreneurial road since my dad  norman macrae first met john von neumann in the 1950s; 

neumann alumni promised 100 times more tech every decade- youth coul be engaged in a mission (historically impossible) dream - keenedy's moon race seemed a good choice at the time- but strangely the west hasn't trusted educators and half generations (decades) to any other earth-changing challenges - at least not until now that preventing extinction is the 2020s mission possible or impossible??..

. alimni of von neumann have delivered the tech, 

and to those diaspora scots who have mediated adam smith values since the start of rhe age of machines it is clear the question do we value younger half now with at least the same parental zoom is an educational not an economic challenge - lets simple see...

..My father norman macrae was lucky in his 20s – he had sutvived being teenage navigator in world war 2 and while sub-editing the economist he met von neumann (father of computing) who told him there would be 100 times more tech every decade from 1955. So dad’s lifes work truied to edit sustaibaility exponentials at the economist. From 1984 dad and I wrote 2025 report that changing education would probaly determine sustainability or extinction. 2010 When dad died Japan ambassador to bangladesh invited me to meet sir fazle abed who had he;ped a billion women with educarun they needed to end vilage poverty across asia. I said I wanted to understand how he had designed education and he said you can also help me with a challenge after I am gone. If I am right sustainability will depend on how much we support 20 year old graduates of 2020s collaborate in replicating community solutions needed to be the first sustainability generation economistwomen.com


abedplay.com INTRODUCING 4 playschool opportunities - Next Door i US neighborhoods as well as the main innovation opportunities at every grade of millennials as first sustainability generation

chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk N bethesda Maryland and Glasgow with special thanks to Asian friends from whom since 1983 I feel I have learnt so much about sustainability goals and girls - economistwomen.com #shetoo

 2021 has seen many of the most exciting education summits ever staged (yidan -wise - rewired - million dollar teacher)- and tech futures debates hosted by Geneva' subnetworks of the UN have focused health, food, trade, peace as well as technology like there's no tomorrow


  covid has challenged educators to leap into the middle of digital age as well as real world society, sustainability and economic designs; moreover skills education for teens up eg last mile health service consciousness as well as actions has clearly needed contextual adaptive training much less standard examination - is there much more to play for in 360 degree edutech than political stages are designed to mediate? how diverse does community engagement need to be if lives matter start from different day to day entrepreneurial challenges; back in 1984 I co-authore 2025report.com exploring the idea that education would determine how 21st c millennials came of age - in hope, love and confidence - or loss of faith , fear and even hate-spreading media

I mention this because while peopel ask are the 2020s the last chnace to get clinate and human orbits in sync- I beleive hod we empower tech and youth through education is where every parent can make a difference


we will be re-editing economistlearning do that each month looks at both a partticular age group and how its teachers children and communities connect across the grades and ages

let's start with schools for 3 to 5 year olds- in some regions these schools have kept open; in other places teachers have had a lot of time to join in woeldwide questioning of what next; in fact 3 of the 4 lead summits of 2021 have made playschools for 3 to 5 year olds pivotal to education's future and some may see both an opportrunity and a threat to usa suddently prividing 400 billion dollasrs for schooling every 3 to 5 yera old while college student loan debts are now estimated ti be larger than credit card debts

thers'a question every american parent could engage in - if we truly want the younger half of the world to be the fuirst sustainability generation- why do we seem to be failing youth's deepest concerns as they pass through the grades

...4 opportuities: Schools for 3 to 5 Year Olds

1 By age 6 celebrate basic levels ofliteracy and numeracy child needs to be equal to others before starting the graded schools system k-5-12-Colege. This research has united nobel economists and educators fromStanford and MIT to India and Hong Kong. More detail soon

2 Designing the school as 3 of the happiest years in personal development. The opportunity embraces child's confidence of self, love of the teacher, joy of friendships and collaboration with fellow children. Over the last 20 years this knowledge has been grown by one of the first MA’s in early learning; in the private sector by companies like Lego and its play foundation; in development world by all UN agencies with responsibility for children and in DC region by education experts in the world bank. It celebrates community entrepreneurship and notably womens views of lievelihoods and life More Soon

3 Over 4000 five year olds have been interviewed on what they enjoy most at and thanks to school. .OECD (Organisation for Economis, Cooperatinn & Development) hists regular zooms on this data and its impacts on skills and education. While the demands of the 5 year old offer a coomon sense view to plant sociallay and economically ciuntry’s total education systems mediate so many hopes and fears that the childs voice may get left out unless parents, teachers and community buolders work relentlessly to value what children want and need most. More soon

4 A typical space for these years of education involves 20 children. In neighboorhoods where particular cultrures are desely represented, unique creative sense of a culture colid come together in playschhols and and ultimately add vibrancy to the whole region’s enrepreneurship and youth development. Scaling this is complex as size of school increases from kindergarten onwards. Howeverexamples such as dual language schools have shown extraordinary integration potential where enouihgh parents and educators work over time on this opportunity. More soon
