  20. 20. Ikhlaq Sidhu, content author Longer Term Future Narratives: Multiplicy vs Singularity Apocalypse Multiplicity: diverse combinations of people and machines work together to solve problems and innovate. Multiplicity is not science fiction. Extending on the combination of machine learning, the wisdom of crowds, and cloud computing already underlies many complex tasks performed everyday Ken Goldberg, UC Berkeley MultiplicitySingularity Singularity: Google’s director of Engineering, Ray Kurzweil, has predicted singularity to take place around 2045 Singularity is a tipping point when the robots powered by artificial intelligence will become more intelligent than human beings. Singularity is the time when artificial intelligence won’t require human intervention to become more intelligent. Computers will be self- sufficient, they will make their own decisions http://techbakbak.com/singularity-will-happen/ https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-robot-human-alliance-1497213576
  21. 21. Ikhlaq Sidhu, content author AI and Job Loss
  22. 22. Ikhlaq Sidhu, content author AUTOMATION HAS BEEN CHANGING THE JOB LANDSCAPE FOR MANY YEARS Over many decades: – Routine jobs (manual or cognitive) have declined. – Only non-routine jobs have continued to grow. (Source: Economist) Now: The most famous study on Job Loss and AI, by Carl Frey and Michael Osbourne, predicts that 47% of the workforce is in danger. Automation and anxiety Economist
  23. 23. Ikhlaq Sidhu, content authorIkhlaq Sidhu, University of California, Berkeley Textile vs Hand weaving: During the 19th century, amount of cloth a single weaver in America could produce = 50X gain. Labor required fell by 98%. Result: cloth became cheaper, demand greater, 4X more jobs were created in the same sector. Economists and historians claim that job disruption actually helped the economies that participated. Auto vs Horse-based transportation: This led to a decline in horse- related jobs. However, the automobile industry itself grew fast. Jobs were also created in different sectors, e.g. motel and fast- food industries that arose to serve motorists and truck drivers. ATM Machines at Banks: Automated teller machines (ATMs) reduce the number of bank clerks (20/bank in 1988 to 13/bank in 2004) by taking over some of their routine tasks. However, bank branches grew in numbers by 43% and total employees grew.

Hard-wired systems that do not learn from their interactions. Automation Automation of manual and cognitive tasks that are routine. This does not involve new ways of doing things – automates existing tasks. Augmented intelligence AI systems that augment human decision making continuously learn from their interactions with humans and the environment. Automation intelligence AI systems that can adapt to different situations and can act autonomously without human assistance. 6 The economic impact of artificial intelligence on the UK economy Figure 3: Where will the value gains come from with AI? During the first phase of the impact (2017-2024), productivity growth could account for a relatively larger share of the gains than the period that follows, when the consumption-side impacts are likely to dominate. This is due to the fact that it takes time for firms to enter the marketplace and supply new varieties of AI-enhanced products to consumers following the stimulation in consumer spending from higher real wages and initial product improvements. As this takes place, competition The potential for artificial intelligence to impact the UK economy is slightly higher compared to the potential in Northern Europe more generally. Our recent report5 assesses the global potential for AI and the likely impact for regional economies. The analysis concludes that GDP in Northern Europe could be up to 9.9% higher in 2030. The UK could see larger gains as a result of having stronger foundations in technology already – many technology companies have their EMEA Phase 1: Productivity-driven impact Phase 2: Consumption-side impacts dominate £billion 0 50 100 150 200 250 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022 2023 2024 2025 2026 2027 2028 2029 2030 Labour productivity Personalisation Time saved Utility The transition timing is still a big factor This time, it will be 10X faster and scale of 300Xthan the last industrial revolution. We have not seen this level of displacement before. Source McKinsey
  25. 25. Ikhlaq Sidhu, content author Argument Narrative • Could you have stopped the first industrial revolution? No, if you chose to not participate, you would become irrelevant: – Who benefited: i) people/governments who created the tools. ii) people who learned to “operate the machine”, iii) those that invent or design the use-case or process. – Who suffered: displaced workers and displaced economies. • Mass displacement also means there will be a lack of spending, but so far no economists have validated this concern. • Innovative people with entrepreneurial behaviors are best suited to survive transition. Retraining will be essential. Psychology is the biggest factor. We should consider how to best re-train for this change.
