It's the Culture Stupid!

When Artificial Intelligence Meets Actual Life 

Hat tip ~ Fast Company ~ November, 2017

 

"In this age of flux, how these developments evolve - from AI to entertainment - depend on the myriad of choices we make in design and implementation of new tools. In the Great Tech War of 2012, it was easier to be optimistic about it all; as complex as things were, it seems the world was a simplier place. Today, the stakes seem higher, yet the pace of change remains relentless fast. This puts a premium on the ethics we apply, the boundaries we set, the examples we present. As powerful as tech alone may be, it is culture that will define our future. And it is we, not the machines, who define culture.

The ModularWorld

"We live in a dynamic and commercial world, surrounded by objects of remarkable complexity and power. In many industries, changes in products and technologies have brought with them new kinds of firms and forms of organization. We are dicovering new ways of structuring work, of bring buyers and sellers together, and of creating and usind market information. Although our fast-moving economy often seems to be outside our influence or control, human beings create the things that create the market forces. Devices, software programs, production processes, contracts, firms, and markets are all the fruit of purposeful action: they are designed."
