    So a computer can do more calculations at a game.

    A room of a dozen brains, and a computer, beats another human… WOW.

    Fascinating.

    Automation/AI is going to wipe out 20%+ of jobs in 10 years. That's why Elon Musk endorses Andrew Yang for president. He and Andrew Yang both see what is coming soon in the future. Yang has 21st century solution for America. Please YouTube Joe Rogan's interview of Andrew Yang to see how UBI (Freedom Dividend) will help all of us and our country.

    I wonder if AI could figure out how to make Mars inhabitable. Solve problems we haven’t figured out. I don’t think it’s all bad but if it’s misused its creepy.

    Why do west want to inject their values into Chinese society? They called out the "control" of China, but they themselves want to control event "intangible" things like value.

    ATM machines were suppose to replace banks. Have they? 1967 – 2020 while they are finally replacing tellers … Automated driving will save lives … traffic and is actually greener. Embrace the future … or become a blacksmith.

    I'm only at 30mins so maybe this subject will be covered but(too important to forget to make this comment,) I wonder what AI could do with an economical hot potatoe such as poverty and how to cure it long term, not handing out money or guaranteed income(of course,) because "poverty" or the difference between who has more and/or knowledgeable income management will always come into play seperating "Have and Have-Nots…" AI might come out of left field with someone either from the left or right of center has never even contemplated….rr Normandy, France

    Decent documentary on AI. Except for that pathetic guy talking about "misogynists, racists, and homophobes". If he was actually about truth, he would have included "misandrists, reparations propagandists, and gay culture propagandists" to counter-balance his claims about data. But no, for people like him, Trump won either because of Russia, or evil social conservatives spreading lies on Facebook. He can never imagine a world where for every rude man, there is a rude woman. For every interference Russia has done, America has done 1000x more often, and 1000x more sinister in nature. This is why many people don't trust the government to solve this problem. If hacks like this guy can't get out of his "Left/Liberal" echo chamber, what chance do we have of finding a solution that does NOT disenfranchise voters because of personal political views?

    The Muslims in China and around the world have caused lots of violent issues so you can’t blame the government from trying to protect itself and the Chinese people.

    We failed to evolve into the digital world (addiction to Iphones, addiction to violent video games, laws to protect online consumers, laws to protect online workers and etc.) and now we are being forced into AI age. They are making humans obsolete and the people creating this tech will be out of jobs just as fast as the rest of us (robots designing robots).

    Without a middle class, how are these tech companies gonna make money? Robots don't earn, spend or care about money. An ad won't make any sense if the humans watching it have no money to spend.

    If you want to use the internet in 2023 you better learn to speak, read, and write in Chinese. Once the British handed over Hong Kong it spelled the beginning of the end.

    One marvels at PBS's use of patriotic Facebook posts as evidence of evil political manipulation…as if this sort of abuse were a purely partisan issue. If nationalism is so toxic to the Progs at PBS, and it goes without saying that it is, then the USA has no reason to even fight for AI supremacy. Progs' default pro-globalism stance precludes arcane notions of "national interest." Though they are loathe to admit it, they have plenty of allies on the other side in the form of "Free Market" capitalists who also adore the free movement of capital and labor. Both parties fancy themselves "Citizens of the world" because they despise the very idea of the state. But China doesn't, which is why they will emerge victorious. The only antidote to bad nationalism is good nationalism. Given the West's suicidal loss of belief in itself, the Han Chinese ethnostate will call the shots by 2030.

    It's quite interesting when it moves towards the end balancing the tone of whether or not this new force "AI" will be used for the advancement of human civilization or be its detriment. This reminds me of what physicist Michio Kaku talks about regarding this new age of information and rapid advancement. He simply states we are in the crux of becoming a "type-1 civilization" against utter obliteration. I personally am optimistic, I believe capitalism will soon find its proper place as 2nd to an ineffable "way of putting it" age of enlightenment. To the future, cheers!

    What makes these changes different from other shifts in the history- then, for example, when cars replaced wagons- you could retrain to work on cars, bikes, whatever and so on as things evolved. Now every industry is becoming an algorithm rather than evolving in a way that creates retraining opportunities or changes for that industry. Now all evolution in all industries is becoming one system.

    Also, I just don't understand who is/will be buying their crap anyway???? Unless it's being credit maxed….who buys it now???? Us real people are busy paying exorbitant rent, stupid gas prices, and insane food costs.

    I'm so damn glad I'm on the back nine. I envy my mother who is 74. She won't see what's coming. And I'm so sad and sorry for my son that I was too stupid to see the world he would live in.

    I have zero interest in sitting around as part of a borg while collecting my government welfare check having AI grade me.

    "What if humans misuse this new power"? Hahaha…. if????

    It "appears" these systems may be more useful in an authoritarian society? Really? Isn't this like getting paid six figures to understand why/how ketchup flows as it does??? The jury is still out?

    It makes no difference which way you vote. In the background are the people behind these systems planning a society that, within a few generations, will have no idea they live in something that needs escaping.

    You will start to see a backlash against automation when AI starts replacing Lawyers ! And believe me it could. What is the Law, but a bunch of rules. Perfect for computers and AI to overtake. I worked 35 years for a large telecommunications company. I have seen call centers built on the other side of the world because the cost of communications has dropped so much. They can video conference in from the jail to the courtroom, so the prisoner doesn't have to leave the jail. We now are starting to see telemedicine. But you will never see the Lawyers / Politicians, change the law, so a Lawyer trained in US Law, could represent you in a US court at a price of 8 dollars a day. And Teleconference in from India,

    Mexico, or China.

    A.I. is being used to play god. History shows that humans shouldn't play god and surely time will tell that our technology shouldn't attempt to play god either. Too much power. The Amish are wise to be fearful of technology. It is literally rewiring our brains. Making us digital slaves. Digital addicts smoking the digital crack. Turn back!!!

    Well, isn't the impoverishment of normal people progress? You have got to love our elite. Guess it is preferable to going off to fight our Neocons' next intervention in an unwinnable foreign civil war. And these monsters who have destroyed America why millions support President Trump. Is this not an extreme case of political obtuseness or outright mental illness?

    Man you guys got totally snowed on the China part. China is the most leveraged economy in human history. She WAY too dependent on trade. She has no where NEAR the navy needed to defend that trade and has a MASSIVE demographic time bomb coming down the pipe. There is NO WAY a trading nation that can't grow without driving up debt and is about to run out of workers can continue to function. She is a house of cards ready to come tumbling down. She will NEVER be a super power.
