To ensure that the world ends up more like Star Trek than SkyNet.
We're beginning to enter the era of artificial intelligence -- a future where machines will be doing most of the work of value in our economy. Unfortunately, many of us are completely unprepared for the significant transition that is right in front of us. As a result, we're going to be facing a multitude of social, economic, and political problems on a global scale in the coming decades. I'm currently doing what I can to educate people about these technologies so that we are prepared, as individuals, as organizations, and as a global society for the coming wave of AI-based automation. We want artificial intelligence to empower us... not to enslave us!
