Millions of jobs will be eliminated because artificial intelligence is smarter than we are in many ways. We humans therefore face a serious and historic new challenge. What must we do to endure? According to our guest, author Edward Hess, we will need to excel at critical, creative, and innovative thinking and at actual human relations, areas in which machines can not compete with us. The new book Hess co-authors with Katherine Ludwig is “Humility is the New Smart; Rethinking Human Excellence in the Smart Machine Age.” As we race at breakneck speed into this new world, Hess argues that “our cultural values from our earliest history may provide us with the keys to adapting…we need to actively and systematically re-create a culture of we.” Which sounds a bit like the values that emerged from the Great Prosperity era, from us baby boomers. A fascinating discussion.
