2021 is our 60th year of debating whether the fastest changes in humanity will be sustainable - see eg economistpoor.com and summitfuture.com as well as norman macrae library of entreprenurial revolution and Asia Rising
our dialogues between east and west started with revolutions Japan. korea, taiwan were unstoppably scaling from 1960 - the 2 Asian models Norman published from 1962 concerned

hi-tech collaboration supercities - eg tokyo-seoul-taiwan-hk-singapore-and thence investmemts of the chinese diaspora from 1972 the third most organised financial network after east coast usa and japan)- soon west coast usa diverged hugely in entrepreneurial capitalism feom east coast
our western dialogues were hosted for 40 years out of The Economist in London St James (eg friday luncheons on global leadership decision makingf were hosted weekly for 4 decades)

JFK & MACRAE -J1
As you can see Irish American President Kennedy liked my Father Scottish Brit's 1962 survey in The Economist of the good news that not only was Japan rising from the ashes of nuclear war but had a win-win economic model around which the whole of Asia could rise. It seemed that the first 5 years of von neumann's legacy was going well:
JFK kennedy had challenged youth to an amzing goal- land on the moon - if technology could do that what might each next decade of youth deliver
an artificial intel lab had been set up on both us coasts - facing the pacific out of stanford and the atlantic - intel had recieved such a huge order from a japanese calculator company that it invented the prograable chip so as not to be beholden to one clint; and gordon moore had challenged networks around him to increase 100 fold every decade this new kind of engineering power- soon the whole region from santa clara to san francisco had rebranded itself silicon valley- there was a new nrew world to co-create far different from the mess that the first two industrial revolutions had produced through the conflicts of the 7 white empires britain france germany italy russia canada and america
back in 1962 my father norman macrae was celebratig, in his optimistic manner that he believed journalists must value- the permission to publish one named survey after 15 years sub-editing the economist- he chose japan. As a teenage scot serving in allied bomber command stationed in myanmar, father and so i would not have survived without american help. But father grew up in european embassies where his dad was trying to prevent both stalin and hitler from ever greater media and human abuse. So father thought of wars as systemically spiraled by historic mistakes- none more than slavemaking as a currency flow of empire (along with opium) which sadly london had accelerated with firstcomers access to smith and watt's engines. By 1939 continental Asians nearly two thirds of human beings had all but been left out of 185 years of access to machines let alone electricity grids; so dad was overjoyed to see japan was scaling solutions -mainly open sourced by american agricultural hero borlaug and engineering hero deming. not just for its peoples growth but potentially all over asia.As you can see jfk thought it would be great to learn from japan but when he was assassinated a year later all sorts of dismal things overwhelmed americans at home with failure to achieve black and white harmony; across nearby latin american borders where ussr an usa raced to sponsor rival ictators none of whom valued their peoples.
2010: When my father died the japanese ambassador to bangladesh kindly hosted 2 roundtables with chief guest fazle abed of brac. He had heard my father's two legacy wishes were about learning how to build sustainable communities -see 6 movement abed spent 50 years mapping - from the billion women who had just ended extreme poverty across asia and how the climactic decade of applying von neumann technologies that father had the privilege to be biographer of...

REASONING WHY SDGS 2020 IS OUR LAST CHANCE-HISTORY HAS RUN OUT OF TIME

Glasgow as humanity’s last chance comes down to the 2020s being youth’s most exciting time to be alive. Can we help mediate leaders and lives-matter celebrities who leapfrog a decade ahead of last quarter’s numbers and historical traps of legislature’s relevant to a bygone aged and relevant to a bygone age and erected around old white mens’ borders. Sustainability 2020’s is mathematically equivalent to rising exponential opportunities are gravitated by blending nature’s diversity with the singularity achieved by alumni of Moore’s law 1965 who committed to 100-fold increase in analytical machine capability every decade. Today, this has reached the stage where cloning one dollar artificial brains whose pure switching capability exceeds human brains, last mile service apps made accessible anywhere satellites connect and deep data turned in autonomous operational platforms governed real time through both personal and societal devices whose brains mimic 5-fold human senses. Their GPS positioning -drone assisted where needed - can track personal human or other natural behaviors from crops to animal species to nature’s own energetic waves.2020s is awash with new data 99% of which has never been integrated locally before.
We will need to make a final call to Neumann’s legacy as father of Artificial Intelligence. As early as 1961 twin AI labs had been formed at MIT Boston facing the Atlantic and at Stanford facing the pacific.[xxxiv] To humanise Artificial Intelligence, we need youth’s great mathematicians sans frontieres- see talk by Israel’s prime minister at #Davosagendaix 2021 ; see why both California’s and Shanghai’s number 1 #aiforgood rock star is the extraordinary humble Fei-Fei Li.[xxxv]

[xxi] The Theory of Moral Sentiments – Adam Smith 1759. describes the principles/trust-flows of “human nature,” which, together with Hume and other leading philosophers, Adam took as a universal and unchanging datum from which social institutions, as well as social behaviour, could be deduced. Notably this book summarises Smith’s knowledge until the life changing moment of seeing Glasgow University co-worker James Watt start up the age of humans and machines. While Smith’s book “The Wealth of Nations” was not published to 1776, this term connects his diaries from the start of the era of humans and machines.

[xxxiv] It is not our purpose in this paper to separate different academic silos of AI. Turing is one of mathematician’s early heroes in this arena making it timely that the new global scholars group celebates his name https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turing_scheme . Most people recognise McCarthy as coining the term Artificial Intelligence in 1956, as well as helping launch the two labs. He probably used a broad definition of machines that simulate human behavior whereas a later distinction reserves machine intelligence for machines that actionably learn from data. However, #AIforgood - wherever friends of United Nations AI sustainability action networks https://aiforgood.itu.int/united-nations/ we are talking about about all tech converging on this including the 100 times multipliers to computational power delivered every decade since 1965 by alumni of gordon moore. Related to this is the singularity tipping point of computer brainpower doing what humans cannot including most government systems -real-time platforms - delivering future of public service. Aisingapore.org futureoflife.org Today, we are approaching a trillion times more computational power than coders used to land on the moon- this can be the best reason for believing sustainability goals are still worldwide actionable
