“The pace of progress in artificial intelligence is incredibly fast. Unless you have direct exposure to groups like Deepmind, you have no idea how fast – it is growing at a pace close to exponential. The risk of something seriously dangerous happening is in the five-year time frame. 10 years at most.”

AI at Home
AI has come home – in many ways! And it's doing the mundane, thankless, and dispensable work around the house ... thank God for that!
“The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race … It would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever-increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded.”
Stephen Hawking (1942 - 2018)
English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author;
Was director of research at Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at University of Cambridge
AI IN ENERGY
AI in Energy Transition
It's all about carbon - rather de-carbonization now! With the energy sector being central to this, AI promises a significant shift in accelerating this global transition.
“We have seen AI providing conversation and comfort to the lonely; we have also seen AI engaging in racial discrimination. Yet the biggest harm that AI is likely to do to individuals in the short term is job displacement, as the amount of work we can automate with AI is vastly larger than before. As leaders, it is incumbent on all of us to make sure we are building a world in which every individual has an opportunity to thrive.”
