FuturistSpeaker.com – FuturatiPodcast.com Hello, I’m Futurist Thomas Frey and I’m speaking on behalf of Riiid Labs based in San Ramon, California. For many years now I’ve been predicting the emergence of an AI education system that will radically transform the learning process, and along with it the institutions we’re currently using to educate our society. More specifically, I’ve been predicting that by 2030, the largest tech company on the planet will be an education-based company the world hasn’t heard of yet. I am excited to see what Riiid Labs will be developing over the coming years to push the envelope-of-change in the world of education. When it comes to understanding the future of AI, our present is becoming a more distant past every day. For most of us, AI is the magical genie in some invisible box that is redefining a new state of normal on a daily basis. AI is not something that we can touch, feel, taste, swallow, or toss back and forth like a ball. Not yet anyway. Soon, it will become part of our every day activities. The change will be so gradual, it will be hard to notice, until one day, we can’t miss it. In 2012, I was asked to speak at a TEDx event in Istanbul on the future of education. Several times throughout my talk I touched on the topic of teacherless education. By some counts, we are short 69 million teachers globally, and a full 23% of kids growing up today [More]
The sixth interview of the series features Martin Ford (Futurist and Author), Carl Benedikt Frey (University of Oxford), & Joshua Gans (University of Toronto), who will discuss how technological progress has historically and is currently affecting our economy, especially focusing on the labour-market. Will this be different for the currently disruptive technologies, especially AI and robotics, and if so, how? How should we interpret predictions about future progress in AI, such as when we’ll have self-driving cars? What can we learn about history and models from how AI and robotics will change our economy and labour-market? What should we change in our economics education related to this topic?
