We are living in times of accelerating progress. Machine intelligence is increasingly integrated in vital parts of human life. Narrow Artificial Intelligence is driving cars, flying drones, playing chess, winning Go and answering emails. More and more machines are doing physical and cognitive work; create music and art. Machines are replacing human work and human thinking. No job is safe and machines soon will be everywhere. AI is eating the world. Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is expected in the next 5 years and we will observe the first thinking machines. Superintelligence is coming after, until we reach the singularity. Humans have to decide how to live with machines and define their own role in a humanmachine world.

Fabian is CEO of Asgard, a family- owned Venture Capital firm based in Berlin. His passion lies in Artificial Intelligence. Since 2011 he has been blogging about entrepreneurship, venture capital and the future on bootstrapping.me.

I don't think it makes sense though unless the computer "wants" to self-propel… I don't think that has been solved or it cannot be; unless it's a mirror process rather than parallel

Al Als says:

The question is, will AI eat capitalism…. After all, if AI puts 50% to 90% of workers out of their jobs, who will buy the products that the capitalists, those who control the means of production, make??? And as for the introduction of unconditional basic income, forget about it: already the welfare system in the USA, the global center of capitalism, has been shredded to bits, limited to 2 or 4 years max. for lifetime, with the next assault focused on eliminating health care for the poor and elderly…while the middle class is finding it increasingly unaffordable.

No, for the ruling class, AI is the "wet dream" for the maximization of profit, of that there is no doubt. But it will also be the end of capitalism, as it has existed for the last 200 years or so.

By the way, in the USA, the median lifespan of the masses is now decreasing and there has been no increase in median wages for workers since the late 1990's, when adjusted for inflation. So, yes, this is the best time to be living, for the capitalists. For the working class, not soo much and AI will guarantee it will only get worse so long as AI is under the control of the capitalists.
