This week, we had a moment with Calum Chace, an acclaimed author and speaker on how AI (artificial intelligence) is set to re-shape the global economic and social landscape.

During our chat, Calum was pretty positive about AI. Here are some of his thoughts:

  • Robots will eventually take our jobs but we shouldn’t fear it. In fact, we should welcome it because it will give humans more time for ‘the important stuff’ – playing, learning and exploring.
  • Humans are in control of AI; currently, there is no machine that is conscious and possesses willpower, for example, they can be the best in the world at playing chess but are not aware that they are playing it.
  • There is no reason why AI can’t be used to overcome the necessity of death.
