Understanding The Danger of AI A Must Read

If you’re still wondering1 why top figure person like Elon Musk scares the shit out of AI’s progress, this story by Tim Urban of Wait But Why humourously and thoughtfully2 explains it: The Road to Superintelligence

A must read, since it’ll affect our very life in decades to come. It appears that the world with “future AI” will be insanely different than the world it is now.

  1. like I do – or did, until I read this linked Wait But Why’s story 

  2. As usual, bravo

Identitas Professional

Tadi pagi gue ngelanjutin ngebaca ulang The Startup of You-nya Reid Hoffman dan Ben Casnocha dan nemu (lagi) quote ini:

Establish identity independent of your employer, city, and industry

Karena dunia dan kesempatan berubah terus. Detroit yang dulu kota besar karena industri otomotifnya, berubah jadi kota hantu dalam kurun waktu puluhan tahun. Nokia dan RIM yang awal 2000-an raksasa industri seluler sekarang sedang tertatih-tatih. Anything can happen. Soft asset lu yang portable dan bisa dibawa ke berbagai employer, lokasi, dan industri yang jadi kuncinya.

Tiba-tiba teringat beberapa kenalan yang berlebihan memperkenalkan dirinya sebagai karyawan di perusahaan ABC, BUMN OPQ, dan sebagainya.

Spoiled & Ungrateful Random Thought About God

One of the best tweet I read this week. Furthermore, it makes me think about my atheist acquaintance who argued that “God never answer my prayer hence it doesn’t exist” and “God lets war happens and children dying where is he hence he doesn’t exist“. I see those questions from different perspective:

  • What if bad things happen as a way to teach humanity to put efforts on (and appreciate) good things?
  • Will humanity value all the good things in life such as peace, tolerance, and other things if those can be achieved without effort?

A calm sea never made a skilled sailor.

I think1 the same thing happens to all of us.

  1. No problem if you disagree. I don’t force people to believe what I believe :)
