There are 52 distinct human abilities, that cover a broad spectrum of perceptual, cognitive, and motor abilities.
However in this post we are not going to exam each and every one.
So rather than start from the fifty-two human abilities let’s exam how the human ability is interacting with AI and how the AI is interacting with the environment.
We defined AI in terms of sense, think, and act that correspond to the perceptual, cognitive, and motor abilities of humans.
We have two extremes, where at one end the AI is independently taking actions and making decisions; and at the other end we have a human-in-the-loop system, where the human is ultimately responsible for the decisions and actions, but is using the AI to inform his or her decisions and actions.
We have four distinct ways by which AI is being used today and has been used in the past:
Automated Intelligence: Assisted Intelligence: Augmented Intelligence: Autonomous Intelligence:
As we go through these four types of intelligences — from automated to assisted to augmented to autonomous, we require progressively more scrutiny, governance, and oversight.
Because today, AI is all-pervasive but still in its infancy .It is expected to be one billion times more powerful than human intelligence.
With every passing day, AI solutions are getting more powerful. From conducting wars with drones, to the majority of the online content that we consume in our daily lives is AI -generated.
If we have a look at our surroundings, we must be convinced that it is not just the future, rather it is the present.
To days world is run on software. It has become the lifeblood of the modern economy, by destroying our ability to understand the meaning of words and written language?
The way AI is getting incorporated into our existence is more than fascinating.
OUR ELECTRONIC AGE HAS GIVEN RISE TO AN EXPLOSION IN LANGUAGE THAT IS HAVING A DIFFERENT EFFECT ON ALL OF US.
Voice assistant is one of the most powerful AI software agents people have ever worked on.
Because we are entering a world of generative language and remember that AI has little or no human oversight once it is in use.
70–80% of our thought process is influenced by our external environment or distractions so we are loosing control over our thought process.
Thanks to AI we are now showered with pictures and content selected by AI every minute of our lives.
Are emoji a step back to Egyptian Hieroglyphs?
Emoji meanings can be incredibly confusing.
Is he crying from laughter, or just crying?
They appear in advertising, in captions, and in videos, but their meaning and misinterpretations are extremely common.
Despite its similarity to words like “emotion” and “emoticon,” the word “emoji” is actually a Japanese portmanteau of two words: “e,” meaning picture, and “moji,” meaning character.
The language of emojis wont allow us to look into the past as words do with written history.
Words are enormously powerful tools that most people don’t fully appreciate like words of wisdom, healing, and life to others—words that edify richly, identify beautifully; words that multiply health and wholeness.
Language is a neurocognitive tool by which we can:
· Transmit and exchange information.
· Influence and control the behaviour of others.
· Establish and demonstrate social cohesion, and Imagine and create new ways of experiencing life.
In fact, we can’t stop ourselves from reading when we see what looks like a word.
We understand others best when we can identify the purpose that frames the words. AI on the other hand has no idea what a word imparts. It cannot “read” other people by the words they use and the way they use them.
We are becoming non attuned to the nuances of words.
To give this some perspective Shakespeare had around a hundred thousand words to chose from.
Neuroplasticity is probably the most powerful attribute we have.
We hold the future of all species in our very hands, including our own, but it is our DNA and environment that control us with
the power of words fundamental to life—and they can be instrumental in causing things to die.
We all have heard that a picture is world a thousand words but this seems not to be true when it comes to climate change.
With it and the above attribute we can achieve great good in the world, if we choose to do so.
To be creative, you need to be able to look at things in a new way or with different and new perspectives.
Allows for amazing human social and natural progress when combined with the other two above.
It is often said that money is the root of all evil but greed is an inner condition. By contrast, the virtue of generosity is most present not only when we share, but enjoy doing so. Any decision to take from others or to enrich yourself at the expense of others is an example of greed.
A deeper understanding of greed can help us to see that it is not only material goods that we desire money for, but also the security and independence that wealth can bring.
Where are we, what should change, and how?
We can start with a simple thought exercise.
You exist on Earth and, therefore, are in some location, right? So, from where you live, what do you see beyond Earth?
Get off the Smartphone. Dump emoji’s that communicate illiteracy.
Read to increase the understanding of imagination, the meaning of words, how they are used, when to use them.
Education, Education and more education to enhance creativity.
Money is only an instrumental good. that is, it is only good for the sake of something else, namely, what we can get with it.
Our combined inability to recognize this is down to the fact that we have created a Capitalist World on the foundations of greed, a culture of I am all Right Jack. We’re being fleeced. It is disgusting, and everyone should be outraged that we are unwilling to share wealth to save our world.
comments appreciated. All like clicks and abuse chucked in the bin.
