Neil Jacobstein, Chair of A.I. and Robotics at the Singularity University provides his thoughts on the future of AI and its impact on the medical and transportation fields.
However, what is more interesting is his provocative stance on the future of jobs in a world where we have machines that are stronger, faster, and smarter than us. AI may create new jobs but as Jacobsein notes:
"The question is really what is the ratio of jobs destroyed to jobs created"
It is possible to hypothesize how all tasks and jobs can be automated. How do we live in a world where much of our sense of value is derived from a job no longer needed?
There is responsibility that we develop/integrate this technology in a manner that acknowledges this issue and I am excited to see how we do it.
