Society has been accustomed to a slow impact from a gradually increasing rate of innovation change. For instance, this is how long it generally took the concepts of these impacts to make their way around the world: - A few thousand years for farming. - A few centuries for metalwork. - A century for the Industrial Revolution. - A few decades for personal computers.
In modern society, the rate of innovation is significantly accelerating, especially in biotech, advanced chip design, nanotech and regenerative robotics. Yet, the rate of innovation that’s outpacing all others is happening within the field of computer technology. A public example of that was when Google announced a few years ago it had successfully tested the quantum computer it had been creating. Google said their machine was able to finish a computational task in just 200 seconds — and that the world’s most powerful supercomputers would need 10,000 years to accomplish the same task.
Then specifically, the branch within computer technology that has the highest rate of change is AI. A public example of that was when an AI engineer, working on LaMDA, Google’s AI chatbot generator, publicly announced recently that he thought LaMDA became sentient. Furthermore, this rate of change is also paired with the highest rate of societal adoption of AI innovation. A public example of that is ChatGPT, an app developed by Open AI, which reached 100 million users in just two months.
Since AI will have the unique combination of having the highest innovation rate as well as the highest adoption rate, it will replace human labor in:
- Core government systems such as; military, police, education and judicial.
- Dozens of individual-oriented white-collar fields such as; journalism, legal, finance, medicine, coding, tech, administrative and STEM.
- Dozens of team-oriented blue-collar fields which will use thousands of different types of robotic automation integrated with AI. This will range from the simplest fast-food services to the most complex aerospace construction.
This immense impact on society will also happen very quickly because AI will be continuously:
- Using centrally located server structures that will be accessible by anyone, anywhere, anytime in the world.
- Learning all the new information that is published and then using that information to improve its abilities.
- Learning from billions of new interactions with humans and then using those experiences to improve its abilities.
- Innovating incrementally by cross-pollinating the learned new information and experiences within one field to improve processes within another field.
The impact of AI will revolutionize society further and faster than all other innovation in history combined. In the future, humans will need to have the ability to come to work and do something new every day. If they need to be told what to do at work by management then they won’t be needed because AI will be able to do it. So either humans will need to be able to use all advancing AI as tools or they will be made obsolete by that same AI. This will require humans to hone their unique potential ability for creativity. This ability is unique because AI will never have creativity.
For example, AI can drive cars and fly planes as long as the conditions of the environment within which the AI is functioning does not change. So if a wheel comes of a driving car and/or there are severe accidents along with dangerous road conditions, then AI will completely fail. Respectively, if a wing is ripped of a flying plane and/or there is significant debris along with turbulent weather conditions, then AI will completely fail. Only the human attributes of intuition and emotion, which AI will NEVER have the computation capability to match (no matter how powerful it becomes in the future), gives humans the creative potential to survive and succeed in the most extreme constantly changing environments.
Therefore U.S. Education must have curriculum that can stimulate and develop a student’s skill for creativity. LED accelerator is the only solution to achieve this goal by continually originating sustainable curriculum changes for the rest of U.S. Education.
