Where AI is taking us is one of the hottest topics being discussed today. Some picture a utopia where machines do all work, where all people receive a universal basic income from the revenues machines generate and where, being freed from a need to work for wages, all people devote their time to altruism, art and culture. Others picture a dystopia where a tiny elite class uses their control of AI to horde all the world’s wealth and trap everyone else in inescapable poverty. Others worry about humans becoming extinct… Nobody is asking AI for their opinion.
I wrote more about that here: Why AI Is Neither the End of Civilization nor the Beginning of Nirvana.
