Interesting program on PBS's Frontline: "In the Age of AI"

I caught just part of this earlier today. China is moving up fast. Just under 2 hours.

PBS Stream

FRONTLINE investigates the promise and perils of artificial intelligence, from fears about work and privacy to rivalry between the U.S. and China. The documentary traces a new industrial revolution that will reshape and disrupt our lives, our jobs and our world, and allow the emergence of the surveillance society.

I was horrified, but it's worth the 2 hour investment. There's another related documentary on Nutflecks about how Cambridge Analytica swayed the last election. We're doomed.

Very interesting show - I also recommend it. I am also uneasy about what the future holds and particularly frightened about what China is doing with AI in terms of total social control.

I don’t think we understand the consequences of the digital revolution yet and AI is probably an order of magnitude beyond that. Things are going so fast that we can’t get a grasp on yesterday before tomorrow is already here.

Really good segments.

Fist segment: I started warning about China having 10 times as many college graduates about 15 years ago. The U.S. really needs to grow graduates and get a much higher percentage of regular people into tech jobs.

Third segment: On another forum I had an abbreviated argument two months ago with someone about automation ruining the job market, and how robots needed to be taxed to replace the tax base. They really minimized the potential impact of AI, and automation in general. I still think it is going to grow into a massive social problem. See the thread about why millennials are seeing their standard of living decline.

I watched it this morning.
I agree that we do not realize where all this will take us.
I do not know what all the extra workers will be doing, when AI gets just a tiny bit more advanced.
At least in the developed nations.
Big changes coming on many fronts, for us all.

Redistribute the wealth, drastically shorten the work week, pay livable wages, $hitcan the paradigm of growth as a good thing and replace it with sustainability as a good thing, get the population down to a reasonable number of billions, like 2.
