Make the future Happen

第三次工业革命还没有均匀地分布于我们的经济与社会中,第四次工业革命又在逼近。如果说以往历次工业革命都以征服自然,增强人类自信为特征,这一次则在带给人类福祉的同时,也引发了人们一些困惑和焦虑:以人工智能和基因技术为代表的新一轮技术浪潮,直指人类自身,人类的智能有可能被机器超越,人的生命有可能被重新定义。

在展开这些奇点论之前,技术必须完成两个使命,才能真正进入下一轮革命。技术和互联网除了带来更多的数字和数据游戏之外,必须能解决经济与社会中的痛点:首先,技术必须更加均匀地赋能经济与社会,包括制造、教育,医疗,环保,能源,城市化等;技术所创造的福祉,也必须更加具有包容性;其次,技术产生的新问题,必须有更新更好的技术来解决。技术革命所带来的最大的机会,最终会体现在人类的福祉与进步本身。

让我们重回未来,共赴当下。

While the benefits of the third industrial revolution, the move into digital manufacturing, are still reaching out to more regions and economic sectors, a fourth revolution is on its way. Though past changes conquered nature to improve human confidence, the new revolution, while yielding benefits to mankind, could lead to hesitation and anxiety. The new wave of technology, artificial intelligence and genetic engineering, could see the robot intelligence surpass the human mind and redefine life as we know it.

Life-changing aside, before stepping into a new revolution, man-made intelligence must learn to solve economic and societal pain points. First, it must work its way into more sectors: manufacturing, education, medicine, environmental protection, energy and urbanization, and establish benefits to more groups of people. Second, technology must advance to eliminate problems and ensure the authenticity of information. All in all, to ensure the best chance of a technical revolution, technology must be used to benefit the well-being of mankind.

Let us return to the future and focus on the present.
