Hi Future Fans,
I’m not going to comment too much on this, however will recommend that you read it. It’s Alphabet’s ‘Founder’s Letter’ penned by Sergey (linked).
He touches on the ever-increasing power of computation in its many forms, and refers to “the new spring in artificial intelligence (as) the most significant development in computing in my lifetime”.
He describes that we are truly in a technological renaissance, with transformative advances becoming commonplace.
He also describes the weight of responsibility and the deep questions around how these technologies (and AI in particular) will impact the world.
These are all topics that are close to the heart of any futurist!
