AI for Human Flourishing

194 views

Published on

2018 is the best year in human history. The rates of hunger, poverty, violence, and illiteracy are all at their lowest levels ever. We have achieved this using both human intelligence and collective intelligence. But things are about to get even better using Artificial Intelligence. A recent UN report predicts that today’s AI will create at least $70 trillion of value through 2030 and new AI technologies could double that. AI will impact every single challenge humanity currently faces. In addition to vastly improving productivity, it will provide new solutions to social dilemmas and will provide new coordination mechanisms to foster cooperation. It will be used to predict and mitigate extreme behavior in a wide range of complex systems including the climate, economy, disease, politics, social media, transportation, and energy flows. It will usher in a new era of creativity and invention that will lead to unprecedented human flourishing.
