Can we become more human in the Age of AI? What would such a strategy look like?

Is it to prepare for the long term possibilities and perils should the singularity come to pass? Many experts speculate the future could be one of abundance and equity across economy and society. Many others believe it could be one of societal struggles and splinters as people and much of what they do are overtaken by AI advances that “devour human intelligence”. [1]

The jury is still out on which scenario will prevail. As spelt out in What is Artificial Intelligence: Villani Mission…

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is a metric refined by John Maynard Keynes in the 1940s to measure the economic output of a country. It is used as well as a proxy for “economic power”, while GDP/capita is widely construed as a measure of standard of living, and even sometimes welfare.

The rise of AI helps moving industry 4.0 value to new heights

Industrial production must adapt to “mass personalization”, fast product innovation, strong price competition, stricter compliance and higher quality requirements. Industries must use the comprehensive set of Industry 4.0’s technology solutions to think engineering, production, IT and business as systems to shorten cycle times, improve products quality and manufacture customized products on a global scale. AI is already at the heart of that industry and business revolution, bringing the next level of automation and effectiveness, from “Things-to-Action”.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the topic of all current media debates, and political, economic and philosophic discussions. The recent best-sellers show that even the general public is strongly interested in it. As best worded by Cédric Villani, deputy in the French Assembly and Medal field honored, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is from now on “everyone’s business.”

AI remains nevertheless a subject in the hands of a few experts who are mostly followers of the “theory of the singularity” that foresees a catastrophic future where AI will overtake, then quickly devour human intelligence.

It is therefore of our responsibility — us, specialists…
