Kai-Fu Lee is one of the world’s leading Artificial Intelligence experts and a bestselling author. In conversation with Kamal Ahmed, former Editorial Director of the BBC, he discussed his new work of ‘scientific fiction’, AI 2041, co-authored with the celebrated novelist Chen Qiufan. He founded Microsoft Asia’s research lab that has trained CTOs and AI heads at Baidu, Tencent, Alibaba and Huawei. As President of Google China he helped establish the company in the Chinese market. And now, as CEO of Sinovation Ventures, he is investing in China’s high-tech sector, giving him a unique perspective on how AI is set to change our world over the next 20 years.
On September 22 Lee came to Intelligence Squared to explain how AI is at an inflection point and urged us to wake up to its radiant possibilities as well as to the existential threats it poses to life as we know it. AI 2041 offers up eye-opening scenarios of our techno-future - from a teenage girl’s rebellion when AI gets in the way of romance to a rogue quantum computer scientist’s revenge plot that imperils the world.

Kai has fresh insights and is not bound by ideology. There are options to limit addictive and harmful content if we exercise self-control. The individualization of content by AI can be governed by user choice like in KZbin premium. The BigTech should not babysit users. The issue is for the consumers who want to consume free but are manipulated by commercials. What Kai proposes as governing metrics is very useful.

IQ2 need an AI to make the audio levels the same between people on video. It's really bad when one is twice a loud as the other and always makes it hard to listen to this great content.

I'd like to offer a partial answer for why the surplus can't feed and procure for the poorest. Today's production relies on difficult or dangerous jobs that can't yet be automated at scale. Those jobs are so harsh, that if people really could live without toiling, they would stop them. And the system would collapse. Hopefully, we will solve that eventually.

china is already using AI in covid19 prevention, port management, transportation and industry. More and more ports in china are automated using AI. In industry automation is carried out using AI. China is far ahead and incorporating quantum technology will make it invincible.

Deep learning then equals human emotional manipulation for capital gain. So we surrender meaning, purpose and the beauty of life for efficiency and profit. I don't understand why this is so wonderful for the human species.... I prefer wrong answers, chance, change, possibilities, surprises and the natural creative process over effeiciency, rightness and gradient descent. Give me colourful ascent and ups and downs any day

@Eran Deser Capitalism = invention/product is owned by people who funded it(with capital i.e capitalists). We could try making it so that the people who do the invention/create the product have the rights to the invention/product. It will also be easier since it will be cheaper to fund everything. For example, we might value the inventors of touch screen and creators of iphone(or some relevant innovation in the future) more than Steve Jobs.

@ghunghun1 not that easy: who invented fast food, supermarkets, electric cars (the first one was late 19th century), the first micro chip, nano chip, the Eiffel tower ?

@Eran Deser I don't get your point. They should get credit and more share if the product makes money. The current system is not easy either and it is really hard to make accurate predictions about how a particular tech or tech enabler will effect the world. We can however, always try to align our incentives to our goals and values. It is unfair to demand a complete blue print to an entire new system, we can just adjust our incentives. If we want more innovations, we should reward it better. Dennis Ritchie should have died richer than Warren Buffet. In this case, if surplus is easier/more (with help of AI), we should try to make it so that the surplus is diverted more towards fundamental research and education (among other things, things that might come up in the process and be clear to us with more effort or results) rather than land prices and rent.

@ghunghun1 why ? Ritchie was part of a team working for Bell (if I remember well) and developed UNIX. They were not individual inventors, nor did they create a company to commercialize their invention. If a company pays a researcher and he does not invent (most) he still gets paid. If he does invent the invention belongs to the company. Sounds fair to me. Statistically most inventions are attributed to teams working for companies. What about songs ? There is the text writer , the music composer and the singer. The latter makes the money, as you well know. Why? Because he assembles it and brings it to the market. In my mind Ritchie was the writer, Woz the composer and Jobs the singer.

THREE IMPORTANT NOTES: 1) THE IMPORTANCE OF LEGAL SYSTEMS: The USA's common law an optimistic, outcome-decided, empirical legal system that's economically advantageous. Europeans use a pessimistic, prediction-decided, idealistic legal system that's economically disadvantageous - the continental law is one of the worst consequences of the French revolution. In other words, the USA's legal system waits until it has the evidence that results from conflict or abuse, and the European seeks to prevent that conflict or abuse at the cost of discovery, innovation, and adaptation. The USA uses the fastest adaptive legal system in the world for science, technology, and medicine. The Europeans use the slowest. They achieved what they did after the destruction of the German intellectual system purely by wealth and prior advantage. Almost everything was then produced by the distribution of the German intellectual system to Russia and America. Instead of continuing market competition, Europe sought to divert to caretaking rather than competitive advantage, and so while self-congratulatory has been continuing its demographic and cultural suicide for the past seventy years. 2) RETRAINING IS A FALSE PROMISE: Retraining can only occur within the limits of the learning rate of the individual. This means the best we can hope for is to shuffle people from one tech displacement to another. The alternative solution is ancient and well understood - is that the use of wealth to pay people to produce commons - making the commons a Disney world like old Europe - rather than pay them for production of consumables. This is because the vast majority of commons we desire do not require much other than the same technologies we used to create the gardens, buildings, urban environments, that we did in our history. IN other words, we can pay people to produce beauty. This is the only viable economic direction. It means a vast alteration of the operations of the financial sector so that the returns on investment are restored to an equidistribution between state borrowing and private capital allocation. (Yes this is what I do for a living. ;) ) 2) AI VS UTOPIA: The question of why can't we succeed at producing the utopia, is answerable. It's because we deny the cause of inequality, and the inequality of value, is that we may be abstractly valuable and equal as consumers, but that we are not abstractly valuable and equal as children, students, neighbors, soldiers, employees, citizens, sovereigns. And until we face the fact that the eugenicists were right - that the problem is reproduction rates of different classes, then we will eventually destroy the human race. This TABOO has to end.
