The disruptive influence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) was a key topic in the recent 2016 Economic Conference in Davos, Switzerland.
DJ from Level9News breaks down the three major steps in the takeover of AI in daily human tasks. The first wave were the robots which construct cars and the like, or what she calls, “narrow-based AI”; the second wave is upon us now, which is the incorporation of of AI into virtually every facet of our lives, including all aspects of production, distribution, finance, the dissemination of information, our increasing reliance on these technologies, including in the way that we communicate with one another. This phase is incorporating AI or AGI and ASI (Artificial Superintelligence).
The third and final wave is on the horizon and it will render humans obsolete. It will present in a phase of total ASI; dominance over everything for its own survival and evolution.
It is predicted that within 5 years, 47% of the global workforce will yield to total automation. Within the following 5 to 10 years, we’ll be facing a world without work. The fact is common knowledge among the tech giants. They’ve been “gearing down” for this for a number of years.
With this inevitability of 0% employment on the event horizon, Silicon Valley led a “basic income Create-A-Thon” aka, a government-distributed basic living wage.
