Check out this TED Talk

14708461348_fac7e2d560_bI’ve recently watched this TED Talk where Chris Anderson (TED Curator) interviewsΒ  Educator and entrepreneur Sebastian Thrun on “The new generation of computers is programming itself”

Sebastian believes that AI has the potential to free humanity of repetitive work and unleash our creativity. In this inspiring and informative conversation with Chris Anderson, Sebastian describes the progress of deep learning in the past few years debunking some of the fears encroaching society and why we shouldn’t fear runaway AI.

According to him, “Only one per cent of interesting things have been invented yet,” Thrun says. “I believe all of us are insanely creative … [AI] will empower us to turn creativity into action.”

It is indeed a truly inspiring talk yet one would have to question whether AI and machine learning will be open democratically to all? Who controls AI? Would every human on the planet truly benefit from it? Looking back in history one would argue that no technological advancement has favoured every human being but rather it has been used to create even more inequalities. Why should AI and machine learning be different?

Should we be concerned? Will AI really empowers us? Can it make us all more creativity helping us to improve human enterprise and local communities? What is your take on that? What and comment!

 

Evaluate your work…

…after all, being busy doesn’t mean being productive…

“Evaluate what you are doing, why you are doing it, and where accomplishing it will take you, if you don’t have a good answer, then stop” _ Ryan Holiday

Let the results of your hard work speak for themselves. If you change your activity-driven day to a purpose-driven one you will most definitely see greater results.

Ask yourself why, start there then gradually evaluate your daily activities and where your energy is spent. One thing is certain, wherever you focus your energy and time, there your life will flow also, in that very same direction. It can’t be in any other way – the results of your work are the product of the activities you spend your day on. So, focus on things you really believe are the right ones for you, on those tasks you believe will help you to achieve you life-given dreams.

Stop stacking shelves! All routine work/job are being gradually taken by AI machines or robots, mechanical or intellectual, they will be gone soon… No time to waist on them.

What will bring you joy?! What work will make you fill fulfilled? STOP AND EVALUATE! Nobody gets tired from working, we get exhausted from meaningless work, from the things we do, yet we see no purpose in them.

It takes courage to change, think of it as creative changes. You can use the creative wells inside of you. We all have it, even though we do not see it, it might be capped or buried but it is there. so dig it up and let it flow. Use your creative power as an agent for changes in your life!

If you see yourself too busy and unfulfilled #stop and ask yourself #why you do the things you do the way you do them. How could you be doing them differently? Or, how could you change your work?

Do not take on one step further without stopping and evaluating! Changes happens in one single moment… When we make a decision

Time is so prescious to get waisted on activities that brings us no joy or fulfilment.

We live most of our lives in the working environment, our lives are spent in working activities, so let’s make it worthwhile.

As Seneca have told us – Good work nourishes the noble mind!

Our minds are the commanding centre of our beings, a bad one will not make us happy or heathy, think about it…

On the future of work…
