( A one minute read)
I write in the hope that one of you might read this letter.
My concern is given that digital data permeates so many aspects of our lives there is now an urgent need for public understanding of and engagement with AI.
As I am sure you appreciate there is a great difference between the technology we need and that which exploits us.
Technological advances must create a culture that is meaningful to all.
I don’t expect your companies to alter their business plans but I do advocate in order to make a genuine difference to enhance both your ethical and moral responsibility it would be a positive step to introduce a small subscription fee.
As Jaron Lanier says recently ” We cannot have a Society in which if two people wish to communicate, the only way that can happen is if it’s financed by a third person who wishes to manipulate them. ” “It’s time we started paying for searches on Google or Posts on Facebook which in time will remove false news, as when you pay for something it gets better.”
This fee could be promoted as a World Aid commission and would spread the rewards of technology to all.
