While I have, for years, hoped that the large universities would be nominated for Nobels Peace Prize, for sharing their educations freely, the question around “how” knowledge is passed on and not only shared becomes immanent. Can we use some form of reversed AI to accomplish that personalised experience we all thirst for?
An article that embraces almost too much complexity at once, but it is of such great importance was shared on LinkedIn, again put my thoughts around this subject. Thank you for sharing that article Fredrik Posse.
My take on the subject is here expressed as a refletion on my thoughts, not maybe on the authors take on the subject. Nor shall Mr Posse be accused of sharing these thoughts in any way. He was just a very important sharer.
But as knowledge becomes obsolete more quickly, the most important thing will be learning to relearn, rather than learning how to do one thing very well
The author of an recent article in The Economist states “But as knowledge becomes obsolete more quickly, the most important thing will be learning to relearn, rather than learning how to do one thing very well.” I return to that quote by Robert A Heinlein “..Specialization is for insects.” given to me by Artur Leczycki and hereby ripped out of its context. Insects survive, by their numbers and they sacrifice themselves for these. However, we are individualists, therefore we need to personalize to an even higher extent. Personalization is also a first step towards exceptional experience. And experience is what conent used to be, “King”. We are completely runned by our lust for higher and higher (self) experience value.
..experience is what content used to be, “King”
“Character is a skill, not a trait, they say, and schemes that teach it are both lasting and cost-effective” the author continues in this June 25th article from The Economist. I fully agree, but what characteristicas are we developing? More of the “me” or more of the “we”? More importantly do we seriously want a world that is fully homogenized?
To me the it is the very way we interact and interpret what we experience, that gets me curious. I hope this continues. And I believe AI could be one hell of an exciting tool for this.
Reversed AI that is.
