We Are Here To Create :: Kai-Fu Lee / Edge.org | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

"My original dream of finding who we are and why we exist ended up in a failure. Even though we invented all these wonderful tools that will be great for our future, for our kids, for our society, we have not figured out why humans exist. What is interesting for me is that in understanding that these AI tools are doing repetitive tasks, it certainly comes back to tell us that doing repetitive tasks can’t be what makes us humans. The arrival of AI will at least remove what cannot be our reason for existence on this earth. If that’s half of our job tasks, then that’s half of our time back to thinking about why we exist. One very valid reason for existing is that we are here to create. What AI cannot do is perhaps a potential reason for why we exist. One such direction is that we create. We invent things. We celebrate creation. We’re very creative about scientific process, about curing diseases, about writing books, writing movies, creative about telling stories, doing a brilliant job in marketing. This is our creativity that we should celebrate, and that’s perhaps what makes us human.

"Another angle of what AI cannot do is love. We love each other, we truly connect with people, and we want to help people. By helping people, we get a sense of self-worth and dignity and self-actualization. It also suggests that perhaps it is the ability to create and the ability to love that are the reasons why we exist."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

Interview with a world leader in the development of AI that documents his lifelong journey to understand what makes us human. His observations regarding what AI can and cannot do are profound, as are his answers to the purpose of human existence. They also help explain why machines will never replace teachers.

Breakthrough to enable computers 100 times faster
nukem777's insight:
Now, by using a Metal-Oxide-Nitride-Oxide-Silicon (MONOS) structure, Levy and his team have come up with a new integrated circuit that uses flash memory technology—the kind used in flash drives and discs-on-key—in microchips. If successful, this technology will enable standard 8-16 gigahertz computers to run 100 times faster and will bring all optic devices closer to the holy grail of communications: the terahertz chip.

This is like a chronicle of a death foretold. In academic circles, there have been mumblings (or rants) about Facebook being a bad actor for several years. The Cambridge Analytica debacle has taken those accusations mainstream. This is going to get even more interesting than the high-profile closure of accounts on Facebook. Although 'alternatives' that can operate at scale like Facebook will not be available overnight.

Some interesting links.

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, February 21, 1:22 PM
We are finding it challenging when students use third-party resources instead of our curriculum. The problem is students don't always select the best learning resources. 
 
Sharon Berman's curator insight, March 19, 5:21 PM
Gen Z are the first generation to have had access to digital technology from the outset of their lives.  It makes sense that they turn to technology first then for all aspects of their lives.

The challenge is making sure the coaches and mentors are providing the support these young people need.

Are they rushing to grow up, by-passing a more formal type of education, and spending time with their peers?

Although we need disruption in the current education system, these ideas are possibly too disruptive to be implemented en masse.

SXSW 2018: The 5 business trends that mattered

SXSW 2018: The 5 business trends that mattered | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
From blockchain to augmented reality to the unexpected social network that was the hit of the show, here are the themes that dominated this year's event.
nukem777's insight:
5. Personal storytelling now trumps celebrities Small and focused content is more powerful than stuff that's over the top, and it's thanks in part to the shift toward human connections. Human storytellers make a greater impact than celebrity spokespeople or ad campaigns, and that was completely evident during the Experiential Storytelling track. Small is the new big. In fact, this seismic shift toward the human element of storytellers and stronger personal connections highlights the fact that the technology that has long dominated the conversation is there to serve the humans, not the other way around.
