Ese trabajo necesariamente habrá de estar sólidamente vinculado a los deseos de ella/de él. Aquellos no capacitados para el trabajo creativo necesario en semejante sociedad, tendrán que dedicar sus horas a la atención de las máquinas y otras tareas similares. Pero todos sin distinción tendrán que tener el mismo nivel de vida, las mismas horas de ocio, todas sus necesidades básicas resueltas. No existen "los inservibles", porque la sociedad tiene que estar organizada de modo que todos tengan un lugar en ella.

January 12, 2019 Reply Mokhdum Mushrafi Prof. Harari my self composed another poem devoted to you I love Israelis, I love Palestinians (devoted to Prof. Harari) I love Israelis, I love Palestinians, not as nations but as man, as men and as humane. I hate nation’s concept and concept of state. I hate all that is political. For, I know nothing political is or can be humane, the precious essence of man or grace of man. Israelis have proved that they are brilliant and the Palestinians have proved that they are bold. But then they are both. Politics has impeded their passage to those greatness. Palestinians will prove how brilliant they are if given labs and Israelis will prove how bold they are if they are made convinced to explore the oblivion through research and lab. But alas! They are in trap of politics to fight each other for futile cause that serve the cause of the weavers of politics who have made them war slaves, barrack slaves and slaves of constant military training on end from the dawn to dusk of daily life. Man is not military or military slaves. They cannot be. Man is abstraction, power of abstraction. He is not a trifling geographic being for being soil-tied or region-tied or continent-tide or planet-tied. He is interplanetary. He is universal. His home is his self, his social self, his creative self. I urge upon all men everywhere to tear off their trifling and self-defeating ‘I.D.s of nationalism and nation states and come out from chains and suffocating cages be those barracks or man-made houses and residences or tents or whatever. I urge upon all men to come out of parochial national IDs and step in the nature’s open landscapes for relaxed walk and swim in its seas and skies of aesthetics and joy boundless. * * 12.1.19.

By the way, and with all respect, I think Dr Harari's understanding of AI advantage on cognitive competition with human might be true, but not on mental. He seems to have shallow perception/ experience on human emotion to only describes them as chemical hormones that makes us understand poetry. It takes more than that.

January 18, 2019 Reply Finarphin Why would Watson want to cure patients, as opposed to doing something else with them? January 24, 2019 Reply Arnold Van Kampen AI devices are probability machines.Therefore they will make mistakes.Maybe they should not do bookkeeping. I also still believe that it is easier to build a machine withemotions than it is to build one without.This should especially be true in the case of general AI.If GAI recognizes emotions and responds accordingly, whywould it not allow all of its decisions to become based onemotions? Anyway, what is an emotion? It is, for instance, becoming angry in the face of an existentialthreat. It is nothing more than raising the system into a highalert mode, seeking ways to defend and preserve and maintainthe status quo. So then, why could a machine not become angry? If a machine is commissioned to take care of a carbon-basedlife form like a baby, would it not help to base its decisionsagainst a general backdrop of softness and lack of a tendencytowards aggression? That backdrop you could describe as a general emotional state. And why should not a GAI switch between roughly outlinedemotional states faced with the appropriate triggers? Why would GAI not be pondering on several sub optimawhile trying to find a solution to a problem or allow the processesto wander and go astray thereby using too much computingpower and make mistakes? Would it not help the machine to have some basic rules to base decisionson like humans do? Do not kill, do not lie, do not steal and would it not have to beallowed to stray from these notions. After all, it is impossible to coverall future situations. Dilemmas are everywhere and at one point decisionsbecome random. And here we are back again at my previous statement: GAI is a probabilitymachine. It will make mistakes or call it unfortunate decisions, of coursealways in hindsight. The mere essence of the way by which GAI reaches a decision will make itprone to mistakes. GAI is the better human, taking into account many more factors, but it will make mistakes none the less. It is impossible to make a machine that solves problems like a human would or anylifeform would and expect it to be infallible. Arnold January 24, 2019 Reply DrRestezi Interesting ideas.

January 31, 2019 Reply daseladi After seeing several very good videos on this channel it was a high time for a flop. He talks about AI as non organic life and in the same breath says this life 'll never disobey rules.I do not share his optimism about the AI at all. It certainly has a big future, but we do not know much about functioning of the brain and memory at all, still, he and many of his colleagues are certain they are going to outdo the 13,6 billion years of inorganic and organic evolution of the universe in just a couple of years. And I would say, they have a chance equal to reaching the moon with a catapult.The capacity of the machines to put people out of jobs is proven ( replacing the doctors, a bit less). The traffic can be automatized, and instead of the human errors the machine errors would take over, but the MACHINES are not LIFE. Living being is NOT a machine in our tinkerers sense of the word. The rationalistic paradigm is becoming ever more idiotic in not understanding it today, Descartes and the grounders could possibly be forgiven in their times. Coldly talking about useless people and much smarter machines, does he really consider what would be the place of humans in such a world? Thank God, that is not possible in the near future, but he mentions the people having had to leave the good paid industry jobs and go over to the services, McDonalds and similar. A complete lack of social vision, he is looking forward ( not knowing it wont happen the way he thinks) to a complete social catastrophe, with non-employables ( Les Miserables?) and worse than unemployables, a narrow stratum of parasites owning everything. We have that already, what do we need his prophecies for. No one doing anything constructive is what broke the neck of many previous societies as well. If the corporations with such machines take over all the jobs, who are they going to sell their products and services to? Who is going to pay for them, if he has no job and all the money is in the billionaires pockets? No wisdom in this guy to fill a thimble.

March 17, 2019 Reply Amit Prabhu Very interesting talk. A few things that will change with the decrease in the jobs, is the tax on the automated processes. Take the example of self driving cars. Firstly, governments are likely to regulate in terms of who can run these businesses, because the possibility of monopolies is real. In addition, governments have no incentive to give tax breaks to these companies as there are no jobs that are being created. In reality, we may go back to a more protectionist or socialists system with some sort of income guarantees to the "jobless". March 18, 2019 Reply dark r This is a great talk, but there is one obvious gap in the logic: if all of these jobs are being replaced by AI, not only manufacturing and other physical labor but services work as well, then who are all these AI machines serving?

An AI car may go on a roadkill kilimanjaro if that's what it calculated as the best option. The scariest part about AI is that we can't control it. AI will think for it self, and if it decides that human need to go, I just hope a different AI will be there to tell the other AI that humans need to stay. If you want to get an idea of real AI, look up AI tests and trials, or AI bots for games. You'll find you can train an AI with a dataset. Then let it learn, but it will still get things wrong but the worst part is we have NO IDEA WHY it gets it wrong. So think about this. Humans are shitty at writing laws, and making judgements. It's a matter of time before we assign AI to the job (we already have started implementing this in parts of the US) Lets say 75% of the time it gets it right, but the other 25% when they get it wrong, it's not just a little wrong, its waaay wrong. So lets say you're in court for a parking ticket. and for some reason you have terrible luck and a few of your friends were murdered at separate times and you were a suspect in each of those cases. It's going to automatically assume your guilty and sentence you to death. Over a parking ticket. When you were innocent of the murders.
