Insightful thoughts on the emergence of A.I. and it’s implication towards work, society and the values we hold.
Specially liked Obama talking about Dad’s that stay home and their value for society. They also touch on aspects of the very singleminded factors used to measure value in society (like the GDP) but the main theme in this interview is automation and AI as an threatening aspect to many peoples livelihood. Obama has a moderate and hopeful standpoint towards the topic but is conscious about the changes that the world and our valuation system need to undergo to welcome it.
This interview is part of an series under the topic “Frontiers”. You can watch the other topics here.
