If you look at where money comes from, what drives AI. In America AI is for profit. Google, Amazon, Apple, all these companies are looking to make money. This has led to some perverse effects of the technology taking over from people. If you look in China, right now where the real innovation is, China looks at AI for control, this leads to a ubiquitous vision of what everybody is doing everywhere and an incredible tool for controlling people and it AI for humanity. Our vision is to offer an alternative to AI and AI for money and AI for control. an alternative vision for AI for humanity. We want to make AI that will empower humans, to give them new powers, new abilities, to improve their quality of life and not to replace them.
AI for humanity opens many interesting blue sky projects. My current challenge is to build systems that collaborate and understand people as individuals. That understand what they understand, to see what they see and to see what they don’t see, so that they can offer advice, assistance and services to help them be more effective. These are what we call collaborative intelligent systems.
