Future Predicts#4 Human Factor
“The most rational way to predict the future is to experience it. Who knows maybe it will be the world of what we haven’t lived.”
Ray Kurzweil has the most exciting predictions about the future of humanity. His past predictions were 86% accurate. He says in his “Human 2.0” book, “By 2030, reverse engineering of the human brain will have been completed and nonbiological intelligence will merge with our biological brains.” Also, Kurzweil’s vision of future ideas supports Elon Musk’s Neuralink or Bryan Johnson’s Kernel to the utmost.
Do you think that are we becoming Cyborgs?
It is also widely thought that AI can pass the Turing test and therefore achieve human levels of intelligence.
What is the role of human leadership in a Digitalized World?
To build a coherent environment, provide employees with varied, adaptive, and flexible roles to increase agility and flexibility in how processes can flex. Human factors rather than external factors take precedence over what matters for the profession. In the future, the human factor will be affected by three things that mindset, skills, and communication for human leadership.
Three major abilities that will not make us cyborgs. Competencies that will make us different if we want to be different from cyborgs.
A reality called the robot world awaits us. When this truth comes, we need to prepare our mindset for this reality. At the same time, the rapid progress of technology has forced us to adopt a different mindset. That’s why we need to be in a new mindset to keep ourselves up to date.
At the front of these is the mentality of global citizenship, that is, quickly adapting to new cultures. On the other hand, explorers of old and embrace the unknown, embracing technology and humility is the important topic for way of thinking.
Could this mentality be one that will not only prepare us for the future, but also make us different from Cyborgs?
Skills will put us in a better position in this future world. The most important skill is Digital Emotional Intelligence, which is the most known and talked about recently. Digital emotional intelligence is all about self-awareness, self-motivation, self-control of emotions, empathy, and harmonization mastery of human relationships. OECD recently analyzed and delivered the three different types of in-demand soft skills of 2030, as a result of the Education and Skills report. These were defined as cognitive and meta-cognitive skills, social and emotional skills, and practical and physical skills.
“The paradox of choice is the assumption that more choice means better options and greater satisfaction. However, choice overload can make you question the decisions you make before you even make them. Having excessive choices can set you up for unrealistic expectations. And make you blame yourself for any final decision. “ — Professor Barry Schwartz.
Today, We have lots of options for skills. We need to think and speculate about our decisions.
We must decide or prioritize what to focus on among these options. Chief among these are motivating, inspiring people, considering multiple scenarios and thinking through new possibilities, being futurist, embracing technology, listening to understand, using verbal and non-verbal communication to connect with people, emotionally intelligent, self-awareness, empathy understanding the feelings and perspectives of others, courage, creativity, and the power of change. On the other hand, there is no nothing about practical and physical abilities in this list.
Nowadays, While we think of communication channels like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or E-Mail, I think that this issue will come to a different position in the future. In the future, when we talk about communication, human and robot communications will be an enthusiastic topic. On the other hand, there is a great deficiency in this regard. We have no idea how to communicate with Cyborgs, and there is no set rule or legal system yet. At the moment, systems are being determined, while many applications are being developed, millions of security vulnerabilities come with it.
It may sound crazy… Robotic in Neurosurgery?
If a neurosurgeon has to know how all organs work to heal his patient, maybe understanding a robot’s brain means knowing all of its code, all its stages, and being able to communicate with it? To heal a short-circuited robot, we will need to understand all its wires one by one, or will we watch the robot die?
Robot Human Communication = Doctor Human Communication
The business landscape is doubtless changing. The key question is that “What should learn a human now to prepare for the future?”
