AI is massively transforming our world, but there’s one thing it cannot do.
Are you a TED fan?
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). The July 27th featured talk was given by a Chinese computer scientist, Kai-Fu Lee.
Mr Lee is a brilliant entrepreneur and an able communicator. He’s famed for his pioneer work with AI (Artificial Intelligence). Only his drive exceeds his brilliance. For years he followed the 9-9-6 rule of Chinese tech employees. The expectation is to work from 9 to 9, 6 days a week.
His work pace came to a jarring halt a few years ago. He was diagnosed with what stops even a driven person in their tracks – Stage 4 cancer.
Lee’s story is worth watching. AI development and its effects on the economy are accelerating in China, the US and Russia. The future is now. In addition to a brief on AI development, Lee shares his profound revelation of what makes life meaningful. I was hoping to hear him talk about God.
“AI is serendipity,” Lee says. “It is here to liberate us from routine jobs, and it is here to remind us what it is that makes us human.”
He offers a blueprint for how humans can thrive in the age of AI by harnessing compassion and creativity.
