Tonight I'm going to share highlights from the 2010 "Scenarios for the Future of Technology & Int'l Development" report produced by The Rockefeller Foundation & Global Business Network. Not just the "Lock Step" scenario, but all 4 scenarios. [54 page report]
Following Event 201 (Oct 18 2019), we must concede that the ruling class has been gifted with phenomenal and prophetic intuitions & insights. (They truly are the chosen ones.) Thus it is worthwhile, even mandatory, to study their scenario exercises & simulations.
"We believe that scenario planning has great potential for use in philanthropy to identify unique interventions... scenario planning allows us to achieve impact more effectively." [p 4]

“We can now build robots that look as though they care - but it’s a synthetic version of caring and it may well be manipulating us”

“We have Palaeolithic #Emotions, Medieval #Institutions and god-like #Technology

And it is terrifically dangerous”

Asimov Rules of Robotics

A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

To build the workforce of the future, we need to revolutionize how we learn
» weforum.org/agenda/2019/09…
We've entered the Fourth Industrial Revolution. We're living in a world in which it's predicted that 20-50% of tasks will be replaced by machines and #AI.
“If we do not change the way we teach, we’re going to be in trouble”. Ma
The knowledge-based approach of “200 years ago”, would "fail our kids", who would never be able to compete with machines. Children should be taught “#softskills” like independent thinking, values & teamwork.
Currently around 63% of students withdrawal. Scott Bolland explores the science of learning, the mismatch with how we teach, and the important role that #ArtificialIntelligence (#AI) could take in addressing the limitations in our current education system.

History books tell us how great the Roman empire was, they use the word 'civilized'. Yet, Romans did what neither the Aztec cannibals or Spanish conquistadors didn't do - they turned murder into a sport. This thread is based on -
Roman history is in three parts -
1. First were Roman kings - War leaders who went around smashing people. Then the seventh king (seriously named Lucius Superbus) started smashing his own people so..
2. Kings were thrown out in 509 BC and people evolved a system - Republic.
This was around the same time kingdom of Magadha was rising in ancient Bihar. Romans, however decided one strong leader was better for smashing other people so..
3. They created 'Emperor' with an 'empire' who smashed everyone in sight, and many who were out of sight too.

Indeed I have! Theo Jansen's walking sculptures actually have strong parallels to a popular control method for making #robots walk.

Thread:
Theo Jansen (@StrandBeests) is a Dutch Artist who builds amazing mechanical art pieces called "kinetic sculptures." When the wind spins the crank on the side, the mechanism walks! Jansen carefully arranged and sized the sculpture's connecting sticks to make the walking motion.
But if you want a different walking motion, you need a whole new mechanism! That's impractical for robots. So instead of connecting physical sticks, as Dr. Jessy Grizzle from @UMRobotics shows, you can connect them virtually using motors & software, or "Virtual Constraints." [1]

Fabio Ciucci on LinkedIn [1/8]: #Putin said "the nation that leads in #AI will rule the world," not that "a rebel AI will rule the world starting with burning the nation that built such AI." #ArtificialIntelligence
Fabio Ciucci on LinkedIn [2/8]: If #Russia and #China lead on weaponized AI (and they could), other nations including the USA (whatever they deny) do it too, like with atomic bombs.
Fabio Ciucci on LinkedIn [3/8]: News: Google AI (#DeepMind #AlphaStar) finally became able to kill every pro-human at #starcraft2 war game too.

#Bitcoin is bigger than all the companies that try to capitalise on its #blockchain #technology.

#Bitcoin + #IoT + #DeepLearning will transform the global political & financial system without permission.

#blockchain #LightningNetwork #fintech #blockchain #disruptiveinnovation
#Decentralisation will take time.

#Bitcoin is decentralised although still attached to a centralised world.

⚠️ This is the alpha.
⚠️ #LightningNetwork is the beta.
If you want to change society you need to change the social paradigm, or offer an incentive greater than money to discourage greed. #bitcoin #LightningNetwork ⚡️
