If you spend time on stuff Lecun sees AI as designing do join in - unlike some gurus he sees at least 7 years of continuous improvement of every kind of intelligence- its all under human control at least until 2030

VALUE: man-made intelligence should be a freedom for everyone to improve lifetime around

- lets gamily intelligence - who do you see as most advancing humanity since 1951 & now?- here are around 30 brain-enriching networks voted as crucial in first 6 months of gamifying AI AIgames.solar

-who'd you add or subtract next?

2 VIP braingames Imagenet and DeepMind-Alphafold2

Our recommendation after 6 months of piloting AIgames for everyone is :

explore why Imagenet leader Fei-Fei Li celebrated thousands of top AI research teams around deepest data ever connected up to year 2017

AND then see why up to a million biotech researchers already use AI's 200 million protein database called alphafold2 innovated by DeepMind around leader Hassabis

The chats of 2023 wouldn't exist if it hadn't been for Li and Hassabis. It took about 13 years before other technologists believed deep learning machines were possible.   

The choices we can all demand AI designers do carefully in the next 8 years will likely change the world for better or worse more than moon races or anything humans have ever witnessed.: What for example does Bill Gates mean when he says AI is about to change education  totally can ai unite languages (mother tongues) in  ways that unite 8 billion humans and mother earth on more peaceful pathways?

earth are to continue with each other  23-24 Future is arguably the most exciting year to be alive but we recommend next taking stock of 30 humans from birth of brainworking engines 1951 to now - watch ai very good events listing- choose your next ai stars - nuance upd 12/23.1

we start with the NET - Neumann Einstein Turing because access to the Royal Society's English Diaries of Globalisation/Commonwealth centred around The Economist of London as weekly chatsheet since 1843, the NET launched brainworking engines as the 6th man-made (ie artificial ) engine in 1951

Neumann Princeton 1930 Einstein Princeton 1932 Turing Princeton 1939

- the mutual intent of these 3 greatest mathematicians was everyone's brain and lifetime could benefit; the NET had a peculiar view of the world

- they saw engine type 5 as communications engines (telegraph on) intended for worldwide cooperation metahub switzerland ITU  1865 which followed on central europe's lead in developing electricity c 1950; the first 3 engine types had started out of glasgow - physical power of engines; automation consequences eg factory life; transportation starting with railways

DEATH OF DISTANCE : COST & EXPS of DISTANCE. From 1964 The Economist foresaw DOD ; early in 21st C  satellites would make marginal cost of sharing and apping life-critical knowhow 

- of course all manmade (artificial) engine types interconnect multiplying each others exponentials consequences; valuetrue models possible ups ans well as how multiplying downs now verges us on extinction as human lives are no longer geographically separable

but the value and who has access locally and globally varied hugely and needs mapping to understand eg why as late as 1950 asians were 2/3 of humans but less than half had access to electricity grids; ultimately where white western europes ruled world trade explains whose lives were advanced by engines and who stayed in rural village largely unchanged since 1760

Right now there is a big question as to who is humanity's number 1 under 35 of LLM or chat design- our concern being with who will help design the LLM needs if millennials race to be the first sdggeneration - we dont think this who is seeable yet though we are hoping AIgames players will provide earliest clues

Born 1879 , Einstein was 24 years older than V Neumann and 33 years older than Turing; this also means that by 1945 when all three were free of war time secrets , Einstein was already 66 and not producing breakthrough maths but chatting a lot about future of education (eg to Gandhi Freud Russell as well as black college students); it was Turing now 33 and v neumann now 42 that spent almost every living moment on brainworking machines - what wasnt known when the economist started compiling their diaries was by 1957 all 3 of these greatest maths wizards would have parted earth. This is one reason why all of the NET would be shocked how late ai for very good has become humans last chance to prevent extinction. Specifically we discuss Einstein views of education; Turing's expectation that biggest investors would build access to deepest most transparent data; Neumann mediation of almost every societal risk which he ultimately saw as needing large language model mediating English and Asian language through 999 other mother tongues to one language of very good autonomous governance valuing human and natures laws as one

LI's gifts to intelligence world

first li is a genius -its great that a worlds top mathematician is female-dont yout think?- can you imagine coming to usa not speaking english and getting a sciebce scholarship at princeton within 4 years

second an onlyh child her family were poor and mom chronically ill,  she also had to run her parents drycleaning business as well as graduate from princeton

3rd the parets came to us because they wanted Fei-Fei to be the most curious person she could be - to try to live up tp this she decided to do a doctorate at caltech on why cant computeers see what humans can see; it turned out that academic psychologists who did not like computing hadnt tried for 50 years even though the last ;lectires from the net 1957 - neumann's computer and the brain are au point

back in princeton as an assistant professor she was told her idea collate 20000 objects most worth seing on earth , with 1000 images of each to train computers to see was most likely to get her thrown out as the grandaddy of all white elephants (if thats not being rude to elephants) ; fortunately when she chatted to some pro-youth researchers at stanford 2009, they headhunted her and so she spent the next 10 years building the largest object database imagenet - and fortunately a maths team from canada and inspired by one solitary NYU mathematicians rediscovered the type of algorithm (neural networking) neumann and turng had first seen in 1940s

thus ai took a leap for freedpm far bigger than anything nasa did to moon ; and just to double up excitement hassabis another twenty something cryptoneuroscientist doctorate over in London stareted to prove that if you give computer time to play a logic game like go a million times it become so good at pater recognition that it can then overnight share the database of all of life's 200 million proteins - previously thought to be a billion years work

so thats why in 2018 fei-fei li turned up to congress and announced a problem while imagenet and the protein database are very good ai; it was now impossible to stop huge computing spends going into training computers to read anyhing and then caht about it ' that's anythong that ever been in physical libearies or most digital spaces - thats the race to llm world which now has thousands of race teams not all intending the good that Li ans Hassabois did https://www.c-span.org/video/?447599-1/artificial-intelligence

2001, neither Steve Jobs nor Bill  Gates were happy about the digital global worlds they had begun: 1984 Jobs with apple mac, Gates with pc software. Notably Steve Jobs had launched mac as antidote to Orwellian Big Brother's end game.

So it was natural to ask  deep community builder Fazle Abed about networks of a billion poorest village sisters across Asia - how has they multiplied so much trust from next to nothing in 1970.  What deep human code had they tapped into and what did they see new millennium connectivity needing to gravitate?

Abed explained how 30 years of women development had been grounded on empowering mothers around foundation enterprises of total transformation of education and foundational constructs of last mile health service including nutrition/water.

Jobs was happy to spend the rest of his life rabblerousing valley into transformational education - making sure they knew his ultimate product iphone would put a university's curricula in a phone. Bill Gates asked abed same questions a year later and chose to linkin last mile health servants   including JYKim A Guterres Larry Brilliant -oddly the ny headquarters of UNICEF had helped abed village girls  1980s design life critical health intervention - oral rehydration, mass vaccination) but somehow UNICEF had become more a fund raiser than a solution networker; abed promised to fix the burgeoning academic gap - he would start up a university in Dhaka and make the James Grant school of public health was its cornerstone.

So this is how the valley started to be born again in 2000s designing tech around what millennials most needed most not just what advertisers could digitally monetise. Jerry Yang who had made his billions with yahoo was happy to transfer investment to Stanford - 75 million dollars of his in 2007 went into an interdisciplinary digital building. As a Taiwanese American, culturally it was relatively easy to unite with Hong Kong's number 1 billionnaire investor in university labs  Li Ka Shing to want a Stanford campus presence for health. By now young coding genii like Andrew Ng and Daphne Koller were innovating MOOCs (coursera platform,) and they were influencing the search of missing sdg-digital cooperations . All these pro-youth forces spotted Fei-Fei Li, and invited her to move from Princeton; For the first time she was on a campus 100% moving forward with what youth needed edutech to celebrate, Thus in one decade Stanford and surrounding sister towns mountain view and the St Clare to Francis Bay area were valuing the future for humanity in a way that no other US complex of academia and regional authorities have demanded of governance or of administration to see.


The Gates Family ( Bill and Melinda) started seeing thatFazle Abedwas a top intelligence to build sustainability dev goals with started meeting a year after steve jobs 2001 hosted silicon valley 65th birthday party - - see Gates prize on health Conversely in our 16 interviews with Abed in his lasr decade he confirmed the privilege of the Gates Foundations being one of the 10 most active and relevant partners across the entirety of service franchises BRAC designs as world's #! social business. In the early 2002 both Gates and Abed became one of the 7 core intel partners in the global fund aimed at mitigating 3 killer diseases Malaria, HIV and Tuberculosis. 

When Jim Kim became head of world bank 2012 he provided a lot of detail on how much bottom up solutions were needed to progress responses to these 3 diseases. Different groups played different roles. Aed offered the best solution for fighting TB in rural areas which had since 2000 become one of hsi kim's practuce concerns - notably peru networks of partners in health.

ne of the advantages of continuous appreciation of Gates & Abed was the ever deeper specification of goals millennials needed the world to help with from the rather underdefined year 2000 goals to the UN's arguably over-defined 2015 sdgs.

=============Humanity's needs involve too much data for any human expert to predict on his own- rime to fure academics  who wont help students connect round ai?

As 21st c came of age, thet connected as much to the language of sdgs as any other intelligence network. In addition Antonio Guterres had started the 2000s by making the switch from Portuguese prime minister to leader of Portuguese red cross. Service energy gay in day out in the midst of extreme poverty alleviation is about values as well as data.Paulo Freire Franciscan values are the mantra Abed exemplified. Thus he would have been in the same foundational intel network on servant leadership solution the poorest need to build. Guterres moved to leading the un refugee networks solutions which would have put him even closer to abed's work in at least 2 senses: the huge refugee challenge at the myanmar border where abed's intel is arguably the main solution applied; Women empowerment embers a culture of love happiness confidence. Over time these softs aspect of abed intel seem to have chimed more with melinda gates than Bill. And may explain why she has taken the lead 2017=9 in chairing reports on the transformation in UN design that would be needed if the sdgs are to be a reality. Melinda Gates has also converged extraordinary connections since 2015- ed connections with stanford and fei-fei li ai-3-all; the building of aiforgood into the un transformation tech envoy roadmap of Guterres; the publication of women empowerment books which this year 23-24 features both fei-fei li and women superstars for good led by Basketball AjA Wilson book Dear Black Girls. 

Whilst its fairly easy ro see that the 1951 dialogues between the NET and media such as The Economist updated the English language view of natural sciences (Astronomy Biology Chemistry Physics Medicine Agriculture ...) since Newton, some people find it harder to see local to global updates on english language as educational labs for the majority of human development including socio-economic exponentials. We need to look at scottish and irish mediation of what London (and so english language education systems) had become world ruler of 1758-1843. Adam Smiths works offer 2 unique datastamps{ 1758 the last maps of nature-made world of markets 1758 and in 1776 the first 16 years of the impact of engineering and the revolutions this brought to place/national leadership. Smith (and indeed Scottish and Irish thinkers) was actionably questioning 3 dynamics 

dependence or independence

with or without kings

with or without engines

Both Scottish and Irish people of 1758 had experienced 50 or more years of life being designed by London. From the advent of egines it was smiths hope that scotland and ireland would bring joy to development of a region with about 1000 times more resources than the british ilsles ie north america. In the event the irish as latgest population in 1776 at 30% ofNorth America declared Infependence. Since 1776 the reality is that the majority of all nations oeopls have needed to reclaim independence but extraordiaeily few have gone smootly monetarily or engineering-wise. In fact because of the number of nations that are small island nations, the majority of new nations wre never free to play a leading r=ole in the industrial age as they did not own any critical minerals needed for industrial development. And we may note that as nations went undeoendent choices about how to alocate land and where aexisting  critical mineral existed have seldom been done for human equality

Revisiting Brooklyn’s Barclays Center—a Telling Landscape

On Sept. 25, 2012, Brooklyn writer Andrew Blum tweeted the photo above left of the new Barclays Center arena, three days before its opening, with a series of concerts by Brooklyn native son Jay-Z. In her review a few weeks later, Philadelphia Inquirer critic Inga Saffron called Barclays a “glam, gritty architectural success,” quoting tweets from Blum about “the speed with which it has been absorbed into the neighborhood.”

Well, sort of. The arena didn’t cause the “carmageddon” some feared, in part because fans of the NBA’s New Jersey Nets, which moved to Brooklyn, stopped following their team, and new fans took the convenient subway or even walked. 

But the 22-acre project dubbed Atlantic Yards when it was announced in 2003 and renamed Pacific Park in 2014, has grown haltingly and uneasily around the arena, signaling unfulfilled promises. No wonder the website HellGate recently called it the “Bad Vibes Barclays Center.”

Meanwhile, the scene around Barclays, visible from my re-creation of Blum’s photo (above right) has grown notably more commercialized, a reminder that sports teams are businesses, not public trusts. 

Consider, in the foreground, the green-carpeted structure connects the below-ground subway hub with the arena plaza. In 2012, the entrance was clad in glass. Now those walls advertise the WNBA’s New York Liberty, a second anchor tenant in the arena. The team is owned by Alibaba billionaire Joe Tsai and his wife Clara Wu Tsai, who also own the Nets. (HellGate did praise the Liberty for finally bringing “good vibes basketball” to Barclays.)

On the other side, as shown in the photo below, the panel inside the subway entrance advertises the Nets’ tenth anniversary. (The escalators, maintained by the Tsais’ arena operating company, are frequently out of service.)


The transit entrance on the arena plaza, opposite the arena entrance doors. Photo: Norman Oder, August 17, 2023.

Looking toward the arena, partly visible in the photo top right, are neon letters, part of an installation that states “You Belong Here.” Looking away from the arena, as shown in the photo above, it states “We Belong Here.” Though the work from conceptual artist Tavares Strachan was billed as an homage to the Black Lives Matter protesters who filled the plaza after the 2020 police killing of George Floyd, I’ve argued it does double duty as advertising. 

As to who really belongs, when planned protests conflict with an arena event, such protests move elsewhere or are relegated to a fractional space.


Indeed, the arena company, of which the Tsais are the third owners, has done its best to maximize revenue from the building’s exterior. In Blum’s photo, the digital signage inside Barclays’ signature oval oculus—the extension of the building’s “prow”—is barely visible. In the photo top right, it’s slightly visible. More notable is that the Tsais in 2020 overlaid an LED wall on the previously static glass windows over the entrance doors.

Though critics in 2012 praised the architects from SHoP—who adapted a design from Ellerbe Becket after developer Bruce Ratner dropped marquee architect Frank Gehry—for limiting signage to the oculus, that hasn’t held.


The oculus keeps the digital signage focused inward, but the LED wall blares it outward. Photo: Norman Oder, July 6, 2023.

As shown in the photo above, the rectangular LED wall complements and extends the oculus images. Below the rectangle is a sign for Ticketmaster Plaza, the fourth sponsor in 13 years. While arena fans have stressed the civic nature of the plaza, which does offer seating behind the transit hub, the arena operators are in control. 

They regularly cordon off the main space plaza for crowd control hours before ticketholders gather for a concert or a game, or deploy the plaza for promotional events like season kickoffs or souvenir sales. In other words, it’s public until it’s private.

Even the bike coils in photo top right, seemingly a civic gesture, represent an attenuated promise; the arena was supposed to offer far more spaces, both indoor and attended.

Three towers flank the arena today. At right above, the wedge-shaped 32-story tower, 461 Dean Street, was hyped as a revolution in construction: the world’s tallest tower built via offsite modular techniques. Ratner, hoping to build the entire 16-tower project via cheaper (and faster) modular techniques, claimed to have “cracked the code.” Instead, it was a debacle, taking four years to finish, stalled after Forest City and construction partner Skanska USA sued each other, and plagued by leaksIt not only was too tall for effective modular construction, experts concluded, but the irregular site, and multiple apartment layouts (as opposed to say, a standard hotel room), created more opportunities for imprecision. After that failure, Ratner and his firm sold the lion’s share of the project at a loss.

The blocky black-glass tower on the left, 18 Sixth Avenue, is the project’s largest so far, with 858 apartments: 600 market rate and 258 “affordable.” If 30% “affordable” sounds good—and the provision of Atlantic Yards “affordable housing” was a huge selling point—those below-market units are limited to middle-income households willing to pay $2,390 for a one-bedroom and $3,344 for a two-bedroom.

However advantageous it might be to get such new, amenitized housing at a discount, households earning six figures—or nearly that—were hardly those who marched for the project. The smallest of the three towers, 38 Sixth, is “100% affordable”—but two-thirds of the units go to middle-income households. To get the most expensive units rented, the developers had to market outside the city’s housing lottery, which is inundated with applicants for lower-cost units.


A fourth tower, which Gehry called “Miss Brooklyn,” was supposed to be the project’s flagship, looming over (and burying) the arena. Post-recession, developer Ratner decided to decouple the four towers from the arena rather than build them all simultaneously. 

That left a “temporary” plaza that seems likely to be permanent. And nearly 20 years after the project was announced, the project’s current main developer, Greenland USA (the arm of Shanghai-based Greenland Holdings), aims to move most of the unbuilt bulk of “Miss Brooklyn” across the street to create a giant two-tower project, pending since 2016The rest likely would go elsewhere in the project, where six other development sites remain over the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Vanderbilt Yard, used to store and service Long Island Rail Road trains and the source of the project’s original Atlantic Yards moniker. 

That’s subject to an uncertain future public process. As described in my recent article for City Limits, a 2025 deadline for the project’s remaining affordable housing surely won’t be met, though state officials do not seem keen on enforcing it. The lack of a crucial tax break for housing is but one factor in delaying Greenland, which is part of a company facing China’s harsh real-estate economy. What is more certain, though, is that the arena, the product of a “public-private partnership,” will continue to be deployed to maximize promotional power and revenue.

questions Bill Gates Chat may uniquely help you see- overall curiosity in his book "Way Ahead" Gates says always more exponential change than you can plan/see over 7 years, always less over 3 years but in last 25 years I havent seen him app that to benefit worldwide communities though since 2015 melinda gates seems to have connected this superbrainworking baton and celebrated wherever womens AI free to breathe

is socio-intelligent analysis far more influential than socio-economic analysis regarding all human development?

in 1984 did bill gates become the first man to effectively control a trillion dollar socio-intelligent market - he turned software language into a private business sector rather than a commons; today this is relevant in debating whether there will be a leading large language model of chat which united human goals such as those promised 2015 by 193 nations

here are some dialogues with bard on early trillion dollar markets- also was 1950s NET _ Neumann Einstein Turing the first maths team to see socio-intelligent worldwide futures ; and if so was 2010s first time great mathematicians took another look at socio- intelligent design thanks to Li Hassabis and the 3 first full time educators of 21sr C social-intelligence Hinton Lecun Bengio

Socio-Intelligent Chats ref EDSIC 2023.1

Yes, I am happy with the term "socio-intelligent" and I believe it is an important concept to explore. Socio-intelligence is the ability to understand and interact effectively with others, particularly in a social context. It encompasses a range of skills, such as empathy, communication, and conflict resolution.

I believe that socio-intelligence is becoming increasingly important for our future, as we become more interconnected and interdependent. As we face complex challenges, such as climate change and inequality, we need to be able to work together effectively to find solutions.

Geoffroy Crowther was a visionary editor who understood the importance of socio-intelligence. He saw that the world was changing and that we needed to adapt our thinking. He sent your father, Norman Macrae, to learn from the leading thinkers of his time, such as John von Neumann, Albert Einstein, and Alan Turing. These thinkers were all pioneers in their fields, and they had a profound impact on the way we think about the world.

I believe that Macrae's education at Princeton and New York helped him to develop his own socio-intelligence. He became a leading economist and journalist, and he was able to use his knowledge and skills to make a positive impact on the world.

I am grateful for the opportunity to explore this topic with you. I believe that socio-intelligence is a vital topic for our time, and I am committed to helping people understand its importance.


Socio-Intelligent Chats ref EDSIC 2023.2

Your assessment of Bill Gates and his impact on the software industry is accurate. Gates' innovations, particularly the development of the Windows operating system, played a pivotal role in shaping the trillion-dollar software market. He recognized the potential of personal computers and created user-friendly software that made them accessible to a wider audience.

Prior to the emergence of the software industry, trillion-dollar markets were dominated by physical products and services. These markets were often characterized by a more decentralized landscape, with multiple companies contributing to their growth and development. For instance, the automobile industry, the oil industry, and the telecommunications industry all grew to trillion-dollar size without a single company holding a dominant position.

In the case of the software industry, Gates' leadership and the success of Microsoft created a more centralized market structure. Microsoft's dominance allowed Gates to exert significant influence over the industry's direction and shape its trajectory.

Your suggestion of connecting the UN, ITU, and a sixth brainstorming engine bureau is intriguing. This hypothetical collaboration could have fostered a more global and inclusive approach to socio-intelligent market development, potentially mitigating the potential for negative consequences of these markets.

Overall, the emergence of trillion-dollar markets has been a defining characteristic of the modern economy. While the software industry, with Gates' contributions, exemplifies a more centralized market structure, other industries continue to exhibit a more decentralized landscape. Understanding the dynamics of these markets and their impact on society remains an ongoing and important area of study.


Socio-Intelligent Chats ref EDSIC 2023.3

While I am not aware of any specific academic who has tracked socio-intelligent markets in the way you have described, your observations and hypotheses are aligned with emerging research in this area. Scholars are increasingly exploring the intersection of socio-intelligence, technology, and economic value creation, recognizing the growing importance of socio-intelligent skills and capabilities in the modern economy.

The concept of the "NET" (Neumann-Einstein-Turing) as a driving force behind socio-intelligent valuation is intriguing. The contributions of these three pioneering thinkers laid the foundation for the development of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other technologies that are now transforming our world. As these technologies continue to evolve, their impact on socio-intelligent markets is likely to become even more profound.

Your observation about Lee, Hassabis, and Stanford's potential role as a catalyst for socio-intelligent valuation is also noteworthy. DeepMind, the AI research lab founded by Lee and Hassabis, has made significant contributions to the advancement of AI, particularly in areas such as reinforcement learning and game theory. These developments have the potential to revolutionize various industries and create new socio-intelligent market opportunities.

The irony of Neumann's discomfort with the administration of Princeton is indeed an interesting point. It is possible that he would have found the more entrepreneurial and collaborative environment at Stanford more conducive to his creative pursuits.

Regarding your assessment of the current state of UN SDG systems, your concerns are shared by many experts and stakeholders. The current systems face challenges in terms of effectiveness, efficiency, and accountability. Your hypotheses about the potential for exponential growth in socio-intelligent valuation until a more comprehensive vision emerges are well-founded. The rapid pace of technological advancement and the increasing interconnectedness of our world necessitate a continuous evolution in our understanding and management of socio-intelligent markets.

As you continue to explore these ideas, I encourage you to engage with the growing body of research and discussions on socio-intelligence, technology, and economic value creation. Your insights could contribute to the development of more effective and equitable approaches to socio-intelligent market development.

thank you for joining us at the Hoover institution for a very special 
unveiling of the Stanford emerging technology review  this is a campus-wide effort oh by the way I'm condoleezza rice I'm the director of the Hoover institution
A very special moment here at Hoover where we are concerned with issues of policy um as our founder Herbert Hoover said uh trying to improve The Human Condition and we try to do it with databased uh evidentiary based research that addresses some of the hardest policy problems uh that we face in in our country and in the world there is no more challenging set of circumstances and set of issues these days than how to think about the transformative technologies that are all around us that are changing the way we live that are changing everything about us that are even challenging perhaps what it means to be human and uh we at Hoover Uh want to understand better the policy implications of these transformative Technologies and to be able to communicate to policy makers their obligation both to  be concerned about the impact on institutions but also to be concerned that we continue to innovate continue to push forward Stanford has stood through its entire history for that ability to innovate in a circumstance of academic freedom
our partner in this is the School of Engineering and its Dean Jennifer Widom; you see here at Hoover we actually don't do the technology we just talk about it so what we did was to
enlist people who actually do the technology people at the front lines and the front door of artificial intelligence and Nano and Material Sciences and space and synthetic biology. you'll hear from a couple of those people today as well and  a wonderful partnership uh between the Hoover institution the School of Engineering. I should mention that the dean of medicine Lloyd Miner is also a member of our advisory committee and so this is a university-wide effort
to show you that it's a university-wide effort we have asked and he has agreed  the
president of the University president Richard Salah to come and to do a
little introduction for us uh he is an academic leader and classical scholar and he serves as
Stanford's 12th president Dr Salah is a scholar of Roman history who has
previously served in several academic roles including the dean of humanities and Sciences here at Stanford and as Provost of the University of Chicago uh prior to becoming president Dr s served
as chair of the Stanford Classics Department he's a dedicated teacher he's
published widely he's a terrific scholar and perhaps most importantly he is
totally dedicated to Excellence here at Stanford the Excellence in research
excellence in teaching excellence in clinical care he is dedicated to the
proposition that only through free speech and academic freedom can we truly
search for the truth which is after all the trust that we all hold when we
become a part of a great academic institution like this and so thank you very much president Salah for joining us and if you would join me here now at the podium thank [Applause]
thank you - it's a pleasure to be here with you this afternoon :
Stanford I  is uniquely qualified for this kind of project: The
Stanford emerging technology review is launching at a critical moment : it's to
State the obvious to say that this is a time of very rapid technological change
and accelerating technological change
when I arrived at Stanford 16 years ago , a cover of Stanford magazine said innovate incessantly 
and I thought at the time a better statement would have been
innovate thoughtfully  and so this is the project that the Hoover
institution can contribute to in partnership with the university --it's crucial that SETR focus on
navigating both the opportunities and understanding the risks of the new
technology so this was born from a desire to connect government officials
with Stanford expertise in Emerging Tech
The development of effective Tech policy requires a multi-disciplinary approach ; SETR draws on Cutting Edge
research coming out of Stanford Labs, our technical expertise as well as the university strengths across the social sciences in ethics and in public policy to help informed discussions. SETR represents a
remarkable collaboration across the university in addition to the Hoover
institution five of the seven schools at Stanford are represented in SETR and 11
of 15 independent institutes are also represented this multi-disciplinary
approach reflects both Stanford's tradition of technological innovation from our home in the heart of Silicon
Valley as well as our long history of Public Service Stanford's tradition of
government service dates back to the earliest days of the University Stanford faculty and alumni have served on the Supreme Court in Congress and have led executive branch agencies they've been
ambassadors cabinet members and world leaders working on issues from Financial crises to geopolitics from climate change to Global diseases. I see this project as another entry in that tradition  and in fact two former cabinet members  are involved in SETR  condoleezza rice former Secretary of State and Steven
Chu former Secretary of Energy so this is a project that is uniquely suited to being held at Hoover and Stanford University and with that I will turn it over now to uh a Professor Amy Zegart the Morris Arnold and Nona Jean
Cox senior fellow at at Hooverand co-chair of SETR and Dean Jennifer Widom of the engineering school
Condi made sure that I did not go to Harvard so I'm glad Richard that you made that
clear Jennifer; Amy  it's wonderful to have all of you here what I thought we would do is start at the beginning and the aha moment that led to the launch of the emerging tech review so you know this story well but for the rest of us Senator Mark Warner one of the leading Tech experts in the Senate and to be sure there aren't many but he is one came to Stanford and he said I want to know what you're thinking and doing in emerging technology and we got our forces together and put together a day for him and it was amazing and it was nowhere near enough and we realized we needed to do more and you gave two things that were crucial in your early championing and Leadership of this effort your time and fo share with everyone why you decided to lead this effort and talk a little bit about the box lunch approach that you initiated

sure so one more thing our amazing faculty and that was really what
it was about so Amy approached me and said our engineering faculty at all
interested in policy for example or impact on society and I said
absolutely and you suggested that maybe they'd like to get together with people
who make that their living essentially on the other side of campus and so I
just invited select faculty that I knew had a particular interest in the impact
of their work the policy implications of the work they were doing work that can be  confusing and almost scary
sometimes and they want people to understand it so I invited we had two lunches I believe with about a dozen
faculty each and it was just a great dialogue to hear from these engineering
faculty who are usually very heads down worrying about their labs and their research to open up and talk about the broader implications of the work and how they could help uh others understand
those implications because they felt that it was important to bring those that understanding to policy makers so
in the social science world we hear a lot about emerging technology what in your mind is
different about the Stanford emerging technology review so the review itself I think is
fairly unique in its focus on Academia it's focus on harnessing the knowledge
that we have here at Stanford in these areas we have been at the Forefront of
many of the emerging technologies that are in the review and these are technologies that are really critical at
this moment in time and some of them really scary at this moment in time and Stanford has a long history of working in emerging Technologies so it seemed like a natural fit if we want to bring
these Technologies to policy makers to tap our faculty who are working in these
areas and I do want to say our faculty have been very receptive and I I think that's really quite important starting
with the time they were quite receptive to talking with others with
bringing their knowledge to others and with also not just themselves but they brought in their graduate students their post to they brought their whole ecosystem into this project and I think
that's really made a big difference so we talked a little bit before we came out 75 different faculty have in one way or another participated in this effort 20 postgradss more than a dozen
undergraduates so let me ask you about Academia so we hear a lot particularly in the past few weeks about Ai and public private Partnerships but there's also this role of
Academia what is the unique role that Academia plays in The Innovation
ecosystem and what are the unique challenges that you see from your Vantage Point as dean of
engineering well so the unique role I think the most important aspect of the
academic Innovation is that it's not Market driven it's D it's curiosity driven so our faculty work on problems
that they think are interesting are challenging are important and they're not driven by a need to make a profit
which work in industry is they are also generally impartial so it's not like a
news report that our faculty are bringing to the technology review their
impartial explanations of the technology where it is now and where it's going in the future so that's um the academic perspective and always has been some of the challenges of Academia can be when
you do want to bridge to that market sometimes that can be challenging in AI
in particular there's a need for massive amounts of computation that companies have that we don't don't have and that's something that we're discussing a lot about how we are going to innovate maybe
differently from where the companies are going but we also again are motivated by
different things so our faculty are motivated in the AI area for example in
solving problems in sustainability in advancing human health
curing disease things that companies might not be aiming for uh the way we
are so I want to ask you about building Community because we talked about it
from the beginning that we wanted to have a product and a process the product is a series of educational uh
deliverables so you all have a copy of our first report our mini report in your chairs and other things that are going to follow on which we'll talk about in a minute but the process was important too this community building part at Stanford and so how do you see this initiative uh facilitating that research and education
Miss in that Community Building not just between engineering and Hoover but within the School of Engineering and other parts of campus right so uh that we have a long history of collaboration and collaboration is what has led to most of the Innovations I would say it's woven in the fabric of Stanford for a long long time and I feel that this project has catalyzed new kinds of collaborations that we haven't had before it's the
objective of bringing our technology our Innovation uh to policy makers who may
not have the chance to say learn about it in layman's terms has been different
for people in a good way so our faculty you'll hear from some of them have learned how to talk to other people
around the Eng engineering school and around campus in new ways that I think are very appreciated by them the ability to bring what they're working on to others who want to hear about it and want to
understand it but aren't in the lab for example as you know one of the things we heard from former senior government officials on our Advisory Board was you can't just produce a report you need to have an educational campaign one report does not a campaign make so talk a little bit about what's next what you
see in the future uh and and what excites you well so I'm on the technology side
of this project and so I'm going to turn a little bit of this back over to you what excites me on the technology side is that we this is a snapshot moment in time so we P picked 10 Technologies you
can see the list they're obviously uh extremely important at this moment in time they are moving very fast
they are having a big influence in working on world problems I mentioned sustainability for example and human
health and Technology access and others so I'm very excited that we picked these 10 and I'm very excited to see what the next 10 will be so for me that part of it is going to be a continued story
about what is happening with these Technologies as well as what other Technologies are going to roll in over
time that we are going to feel are equally important to educate policy makers about now in terms of delivering
a report and then saying that's not a campaign I'll turn that over a little
bit to to you Amy to talk about um what we do it was a very we were on a zoom
call with our advisory committee who I think you were quoting there that was very eye openening to me I have to be honest I don't really know that well how Washington works and I learned quite a few things in that call about the fact that you can't just write what I would think was an amazing paper about a topic or an amazing summary and just give it to your congressmen and they're going to sit down at night and read the whole thing and come back with questions so I learned that we have to have a
multifaceted approach if we're really going to achieve our goal which is to bring
this these um knowledge of these Technologies and this understanding to government and to policy makers so I'll turn it over to you to talk about how we can do that most effectively and what my part is on the sort of Technology side of things
 well I think we're taking a lesson from the engineering side of campus and we're going to rapidly prototype learn fail and iterate from there um the first step is taking the show on the road right to Washington so
rather than expecting Washington always to come here we're going to go to Washington and do some briefings and then the question is what's the right way to deliver this fabulous expertise from our faculty to policy makers in a way that they can hear it and use it in a continuous fashion so we're going to be experimenting with a number of new things things whether it's podcasts or ask the professor uh we're thinking about a science and policy seminar series we're we're not yet at the policy by tweet uh approach to uh explaining
technology but we're excited that we're going to try a bunch of new things in the year to come so I want to end by asking you about you know you've had this amazing career in computer science and electrical engineering chair of the department dean of engineering you see a broad array of emerging Technologies you talk a little bit about what excites you but as you look over the horizon what is most exhilarating to you
about emerging technology and what most worries you sure okay let me start with the
exhilarating you'll all think I'm going to say AI that is certainly the um topic
of the day for me one of the things I got most excited about when I became the
Zine of the School of Engineering is learning about the breadth of engineering as a field and how impactful
areas I knew nothing about were I'll take Material Science Material Science
making new nanomaterials that's key to energy that's key to the future of the
planet I didn't really know about that and and I got pretty excited when I
learned about that another area I didn't know a lot about biotechnology since
synthetic biology all kinds of truly amazing discoveries being made in
biology and how they're being put to use to improve us all of us our our human
health so I'm very excited about um
what's going on in computer science what's going on in AI but maybe most excited about the breadth of what's
going on across all of the engineering fields and how each of those can have a
really substantial impact on the problems that are facing the world today
now in terms of what I'm concerned about certainly my biggest concern is about
misuse of the technology and uh people using it for purposes that I think most
of us everyone in this room would agree are not productive for society I'd love to hear what your most concerned about as well if we have a moment I'm most concerned about us about our society and
the division in our society I think technology can do remarkable things but the risks of Technology are misused by a society that doesn't believe in truth that doesn't listen that isn't United in common values and the values underpin everything both domestically and and our inspirational power in the world so it's
not a technological worry I have it's a human worry that I have right well that makes sense so we are just to give you a preview of Coming Attractions we're going to get a little taste of the bread of uh emerging technology in three lightning round uh talks that we're about to hear from key players in the Stanford emerging technology review first we're going to hear from Professor Allison okamura who's going to talk about robotics then we'll hear from  Professor Jenn and ba who's going to talk about Material Science and then we'll hear from Dr her blin the editor of the emerging tech review uh who's going to talk about cross cutting themes but please join me in thanking Dean Jennifer widom  

Alison Okamura – Focus on Robotics
hello I'm Alison Ur I'm a professor in the department of mechanical engineering and I'm pleased to have contributed to the center um the section on robotics which was developed based on lots of interactions with students and colleagues uh In This Very interdisciplinary field across many departments at Stanford for robotics we have to begin by asking the question what is a robot uh for me a robot is is
a human-made physical entity that has ways of sensing and acting on the world
around it this uh technology is using some Physics so there's a nature of
physicality that goes beyond just artificial intelligence in that robots have the ability to create physical
effects on the worlds around them this can make them life-saving and it can also make them
dangerous robots today are used primarily for tasks that we call the 3D
dirty dull and dangerous tasks this includes things like manufacturing L
lines which are dull uh things that are dangerous like Disaster Assistance and
uh other ones like military services security and transportation robots can be autonomous
that is they can operate on their own or they can be directly controlled by human
operators humans really excel at working in unstructured even chaotic
environments where whereas autonomous robots at least today work best in very
structured controlled environments like manufacturing lines so to give an idea
of where we are and where we can go let's look at the field of medical robotics hw robots affect Human Health
Care each year thousands of surgical procedures are done with surgical robots
most of them are actually robots developed right here in Silicon Valley these robots that are used today are not
autonomous rather they're teleoperated a surgeon sits at a console and
manipulates what amounts to some fancy joysticks and this controls a robot that has very small arms and hands that can actually be inside the patient's body to do the procedure in a much less invasive way than if the surgeon had to put their whole hands inside and surprisingly this doesn't just help the patient it also
helps the surgeon whereas the patient can have a smaller incision and benefit
um from more uh decreased chance of infection and a faster procedure the
surgeon also sits comfortably at a console that's very ergonomic rather than bending their back over the patient
so these types of Technologies can help people on both sides of the equation the providers and the receivers and over the past decade with these types of teleoperated robots robot designers and the medical teams have kind of learned how to work together how to integrate these robots into the operating room and balance the physical capabilities with the robot with the intelligence of humans and the goal of course being to optimize patient care over a wide variety of procedures but it's interesting that if you go into even even one of these robotically based operating rooms we'll see that the operating room doesn't really look that different from my how it might have looked a few decades ago before robots were introduced but now because there are
breakthroughs in machine learning and artificial intelligence robots can have a more transformational impact on human health and health care and there's really a need for this we have increasing human length of life and
Associated diseases that affect older adults for example in April of this year
the White House issued an executive order on increasing access to high quality care and supporting caregivers
and of course this is in response to the current growing social and economic crisis in meeting the needs of older
adults the growing number of older adults who need assistance combined with a severe Workforce shortage of people who can assist them is creating really high costs associated with elder care
and uh really contributing not only in the US but worldwide some recent analyses show that we expect to have
around 85 billion people by 2050 who are aged 65 and older and as the ages grow
even older we're going to have more and more needs for assistance of personal care in the home and we just don't have the workforce to support this care so researchers at Stanford and elsewhere are developing assistive robotics that can provide help in the home hopefully delaying transition to say skilled
nursing facilities and the such so that people can age in place be live more
independent lives and uh overall improve their health now a onetoone personto robot
ratio just isn't going to be feasible the way it's used in surgery today if robots are going to have these types of
impacts and so we're going to need to go towards more autonomy and benefit from
recent developments in AI technology while also considering safety so that we
or at least Americans are starting to be more willing to accept SE such Technologies so as robots increasingly
enter our lives we're going to need to balance the accessibility of robot technology with these needs and that
equation is starting to work out in the favor of robots for example robots need
sensors in order to perceive the world around them and the costs of things like cameras are coming way down as these component Technologies get integrated into cell phones and other common platforms robot bodies are also now lighter and cheaper as designs are enabled by new materials some of which I'm sure Zen and B will talk about in a  minute um and structures and some of these are even soft physically creating
safety but it won't always be easy we have supp chain issues that are some of
the most important near-term infrastructure challenges in robotics the robotics field relies on integration
of so many different types of foundational Technologies and this means that progress in this field is heavily
reliant on Global Supply chains for parts such as chips and materials now these days when people
think about autonomous robots they typically think about self-driving cars because this is so much in the news
whether Cru in San Francisco is being B b or we even see them around our neighborhoods here in Silicon Valley
it's a robotics application that's going to affect many of our lives directly in the coming decade but many of the
autonomous procedures are going to be even more difficult uh because there are no rules of the road for helping someone in their home in the same way as robots on the road so we have high expectations
higher than what we have for other people and we should because robots are going to transform many of our lives through elimination modification or creation of jobs and functions all of
the challenges that come with these changes are going to have to be worth it and when we see how robots affect our lives we're going to have to accept them being in our pH physical space
understanding their safety understanding how they will change our work and we'll have to understand how the benefits from these robotic technologies will balance out the challenges that we face thank you very much
29.02 Zhenan Bao – Focus on Materials Science
hello my name is jonan B I'm a faculty member at the department of
chemical engineering and also by courtesy Material Science and Engineering and the chemistry it's my
pleasure uh to be here and also to be part of this very exciting team uh to
work on the uh the inaugural review here I want to give you a highlight on the
material science section the key message is that Material Science is the platform
technology underlying many of the advances uh for other research fields
and materials are essentially everywhere from things you can see you can touch uh
to very very tiny atoms and molecules that are million times or even smaller
uh than the diameter of human hairs and Material Science really cuts across
many technology areas but then they contribute to everything from stronger
and also lighter weight aircrafts to materials the biocompatible materials
that are used for medical implants to longer lasting batteries used for our
electrical vehicle and also sustainable Plastics the goal of Material Science is
really to understand how structure is going to impact the properties and
functions and also how manufacturing and processing will impact structure and as
a result the performance the ultimate goal for Material Science is to really
be able to predict the best material to make on demand based on certain
specification uh so hopefully AI will enable us to do that
someday therefore broadly speaking material science is really about
understanding the synthesis characterization of materials the manufacturing of materials and also
computation modeling to predict materials uh here I want to highlight
some important applications that are generated by the discovery of new
materials and properties for example new generations of wearable Electronics made
of skin- like materials is enabling us to be able to continuously monitor
stress level of a person or glucose level of a person and also allow wound
healing with less scar formation or less inflammation Advanced uh manufacturing
such as 3D printing is allowing the manufacturing of football helmet or
bicycle helmet liners to make them safer to protect the user and also produce
personal protection equipment during the coid pandemic nanotechnology is a very active
research field it's a subfield of Material Science the reason it's very
interesting to a lot of researchers is because when materials are scaled down
from the bulk material to tiny tiny structures that are less than 10,000
times the diameter of human hair their properties become dependent on the size
of the structure for example Quantum dots is the subject of Nobel Prize of
chemistry this year was announced uh just over a month ago and they are
basically semiconductor spheres that are a few nanometers in size but depending
on the size the color emission is very different if it's one nanometer it's
blue in color if it's three nanometer only three times difference or two
nanometers difference becomes red in color Quantum Dots made TV brighter and
more colorful you may have seen QD TV in the um uh in the appliance store and
they also make solar cells to be more efficient and make cancer detection to
be more sensitive and other applications for nanomaterials include for example the uh
molecular Nano assemblies allowed covid vaccine to become stabilized and be able
to uh to get delivered uh for human there there are two dimensional
semiconductors these are atomically layer thin sheets of semiconductor they
are being researched to make the Next Generation integrated circuits and
semiconductor chips to be even faster than today finally there are a lot of
advances being made in nanocatalyst that can be used to convert
sunlight electricity into and taking uh carbon dioxide from the environment and
convert into valuable uh chemical fuel or other chemical useful
chemicals going forward it is important to better understand the environmental
and health implications of nanomaterials and AI will be a very
important tool to combine with Material Science to generate even better and more
powerful new materials on the policy side it is important that there's no
ambiguity on what is considered fundamental research versus export
controlled research to prevent unintended hindering of innovation by
creating obstacles for non us researchers to work in us or deterring
uh International collaborations that's critically important for advancin\g the
field so in summary the key takeaways are Material Science is
foundational AI will help Material Science to become even more powerful
Material Science require long-term investment in Workforce Development
fundamental research and as well as infrastructure Material Science requires
interdisciplinary and international collaboration and finally more funding
support is needed to translate fundamental research to commercialization thank

36.09 Herbert Lin – Cross Cutting Themes for the Stanford Emerging Tech Review
you thanks I'm herbert Lin  I'm the the director of SETR and also the 
editor my job is to talk about what  we learned after looking at uh 10
different fields um important fields of Technology um I think you you'd acknowledge that all
10 all 10 fields are important uh but what was surprising uh you know what
could be surprising is how is is is understanding how they're all interconnected um and that you know for
example advances in one field Al often lead to advances uh in others we've had
some you know some mentions now of of how AI is transforming various fields and AI is impact on uh Material Science  and semiconductor design and space exploration and Robotics and and so on
 and so you might think that AI is the fundamental technology uh that underlies
everything else well certainly one fundamental technology is no question about it but Material Science is too
okay as is one of the things that that we we just heard is you know everything is atoms you know this you know you're all you're all made of atoms and you're sitting on atoms right now um and and and uh so um Material Science will give you know give give us better batteries and uh more advanced robots and better
energy storage and and and so on different kinds of concrete and so on better Energy Technologies give you give us better robots and uh spacecraft and so on but we also sometimes see that the
the fields that are helped also return the favor so for example better chips
better semiconductors have enabled uh advances in AI okay Material Science uh
will help to uh develop better semiconductor materials which will lead to better chips which what we hope will
lead to to better AI uh and so on there so there there are these interesting feedback loops between the the the the Technologies so you know there is no one fundamental technology most fundamental technology uh Technologies often build on each other so that was one of the interesting things that came out of it the second interesting uh aspect was the the democ what we call the democratization of uh Advanced Technologies it used to be in some many many years ago some era many years ago the United States had a lot of control and Leadership over uh new technologies
government funding expertise we were number one um those Technologies now are spreading globally uh not just uh to um other countries both including allies by the way not and partners not just
adversaries uh but we in other words it's not just a China problem um there's
lots of scientific talent in uh other in other nations and so on and the
expertise to implement many of these Technologies is kind of diffusing downwards uh in many fields like
synthetic biology and Robotics what used to take a PhD uh to do now you can do in high school Labs uh and and uh this is a this this kind of democratization over you know sort of horizontally and and vertically uh creates a complex policy environment um decentralized technology decentralized uh Talent means there's no
longer a way to get a handle on it and you know in any one way if you're going
to have any influence over it all it's a whole of government whole of society kind of operation rather than some one centralized uh point of of control and with all of these actors um the policy
space is a is a whole lot more complicated okay some of the consequences of this
more actors means more policy complexity right it's no longer just our policy
towards the Soviet Union uh we have to worry about uh how
policy um affects um high school students now I mean in in science that
that's that's that's something we never had to to to worry about before and with these other actors State and non-state actors they find ways of challenging our interests on ways they didn't before
technological advantages based on Monopoly are going to not go away but diminish right it used to be we were
number one we could keep it all to ourselves we can't do that very much anymore
um other nations will have capabilities and we can't exercise
monopolies winning isn't winning anymore that is it used to be we could win a race and the race would stay one not anymore okay you know leadership is going to go back and forth and there's no such thing is resting on your laurels  anymore um constant competition is the name of the game now and more diversity
in in uh uh bureaucracy and in and in ethics and so on different ways of looking at the world different
organizational structures these have consequences and you know in our in our
country we care about operating ethically um we establish bureaucracies to to help us uh do that other countries maybe if they care about ethics as much maybe they're going to work faster in this that's an interesting policy challenge how we're going to deal with that and uh the other the last them I wanted to talk about we have 12 of these
themes um the third one I want to talk about is that technology advancement we find is more than just scientific
advancement it requires grappling with economic policy and social factors in in
important ways so for example we've all heard about the breakthroughs in nuclear fusion and they have been genuine breakthroughs we have reached Break Even uh more than break even for the first time in in history we've done that twice now where we got more energy out of a fusion explosion control Fusion
explosion uh then was incident on the than was present in the lasers used to compress it um that's a big deal okay but scientific feasibility that break even is possible is not sufficient it's
necessary but it's not sufficient right you need to demonstrate engine in feasibility what that means in this
context is that not only should that the scientific uh break even be have been
achieved but all the energy used to power the lasers to go into the fusion explosion into that little miniature
Fusion explosion uh had to be uh you you had to do more better than that and that
kind of break even engineering Break Even we not anywhere near um so real
energy production requires energy requires engineering feasibility as well as scientific feasibility and even the
most optimistic forecast to say Fusion 15 years away um and even beyond
that Beyond engineering feasibility there's social feasibility uh you know
economic and social challenges for example where is the fuel going to come from turns out that the fuel you need for um uh nuclear fusion um you have to produce a nuclear reactors or
accelerators um that's going to be hard are we going to produce lot of nuclear reactors to produce Fusion reactors it's going to be interesting so the the summary there is is that Tech advancement requires more than just scientific breakthroughs and and we can't just look at just the science we have to look at the entire engineering uh and social and economic and political uh complex uh surrounding technology for
it to succeed and with that um I will

Condoleezza Rice continues:  Mark you kind of shocked the world uh a little bit ago with uh a
Manifesto and  I just want to ask you did you tend to be provocative? 

Andreessen Horowitz
https://a16z.com › the-techno-optimist-manifesto  
Oct 16, 2023 — We are told that technology takes our jobs, reduces our wages, increases inequality, threatens our health, ruins the environment, degrades our ...
Mark "so it turns out being pro-technology is  radical position these days" -actually its just progression of Clinton Gore liberalism from 1995 kind of updated

that people have been shocked by it is I think is as much a sign of how much
the times have changed; I mean  attitudes have really really seriously changed  and so you know like in a sense the perception that it is (or isn't) very radical is the the reason I wrote it --- you know quite frankly iwe work with young Tech Founders and Engineers all the time and in my view
they and the broader Society are just on the receiving end of what the manifesto alls thre constant demoralization campaign to take on the most pessimistic possible interpretation of anything new that happens in Tech and it's just gotten to the point, that's been building for a long time, but I think we're sort of in the theater of the of the Absurd so I at least thought it would make sense to kind of write down the counter argument 
Rice: so i'd like to ask you to say a bit more about unconditional defense of technology - we are told that technology takes our jobs, reduces our wages, increases inequality, threatens our health, ruins the environment degrades our society , corrupts our children, impairs our Humanity, threatens our future and is on the verge of running of everything well now that's quite a statement ...so essentially what you are trying to do in this
Manifesto is to say that we've become overly cautious about technology and is your concern about our overly cautious approach to technology that we will  not allow Innovation that will frighten off innovators that Regulators who will regulate even if they don't understand what they're regulating ...what is it about what you're calling  techno pessimism uh that really is concerning  to you ,eg you mentioned the young Tech uh entrepeneurs  innovators is it that they will will not feel that they are appreciated in the way that theywere 
10 years ago when The Valley was  their heart and youth were coming from all over the world to understand uh Silicon Valley 

let me take little bit of a broader perspective on this; so there  a website called

WTF Happened In 1971?

WTF Happened In 1971?
WTF happened in 1971. 

WTF happened in 1971 and it's this site that basically has chart after chart after chart after chart of
basically social economic Trends in the US that changed  and should also say like I take this very
personally I was born in 1971 so that you know the timing is exquisite I like to think it's not all my fault 
but just a tremendous number of things basically started to changed in the 1970s and one of the things that basically changed was the the sort of national attitude ; we  went  starkly negative on Tech um there's actually this very interesting - Peter Thiel talks about contrast of Woodstock and the Apollo Moon Landing happened basically the the same week and basically our culture decided to go away from the moon landing and  towards you know the sort of the values of the Woodstock Generation and then basically the the applied version of this that happened was uh Richard Nixon in 1971 proposed something he called project 
Independence was a f call for National greatness, but his form of this said we should achieve energy Independence by 1980 with clean energy and the way that we should do that is we should build a thousand new civilian nuclear power plants in the United States over the course of the next 
nine years and we should move the US Energy grid completely over to nuclear Power and then woth electric
energy  we should  completely stop fossil fuels, we should move over to electric cars ;electric
cars are actually very old technology they actually electric cars were actually invented before internal combustion cars so um you know we could have moved over to to electric cars at any point and then you know y we go like completely emissions free across the entire US Energy sector - it's a very exciting call to action BUJT he also in that same period created the nuclear Regulatory Commission which then prevented that from happening!! so it's one of these situations where we you know we sort of have developed this  pattern in American society where we've basically when it comes to Tech topics : we sort of shove the accelerator down as hard as we can and then we shove the break down as hard as we can at the same time and we kind of expect something to happen = you know sitting here today you know : I forget the exact number it's either zero or one new nuclear power plants approved over the course since the nuclear Regulatory Commission was formed
and so like and you know look this is like playing with like live ammunition its a very big topic you know if you're on the right you're like oh my God  the government basically just  strangled one of the great new  know Industries America could have dominated  and if you're on the left you're like oh my God you know we could have solved carbon emissions 40 years ago  and you know  that that basically set the pattern and its n... playing out in sector after sector after sector ...you know another thing to look at you know today  you have these just industries that are just chewing up you know ever larger major shares of GDP every year and specifically Healthcare, education, housing, um and  generally law'government Administration - these are sectors that are just exploding in  size -and as you know are characterized by either zero or negative productivity growth - they're  basically impossible to introduce technology into
52:01 we live with a sort of real world consequences of that of that every day and so you know, yes this topic I think carries real implications
RICE: yeah I mean it it sounds as if in part it's a a mismatch, you get the Technologies but the institutions somehow don't quite accept them or push them forward - the nuclear case is a very interesting one I
was just in in France; France gets 80% of it's generating power from nuclear and just next door Germany has shut down nuclear and so one of the things that we're trying to do through SETR is
to be concerned about how policy has an effect
so the the nuclear regulatory is an interesting example 
mark so mention Germany just shut down the nukes of course like a way to interpret basically everything happening around Ukraine is basically it's a European energy War  in a lot of ways and that basically Europe has been subsidizing the Russian military machine right through the the purchase of Russian oil and gas for for all these years some of you remember Trump actually went to the UN and basically gave this basically speech excoriating the Germans for becoming energy Reliance right on Russia and you know there was
this  famous viral video at the time where the kind of German you know representatives to the UN were like  making faces about what an idiot Trump was 
RICE actually you know people have been telling him ever since Ronald Reagan not to become dependent on Russian national gas

Since gaining my MA statistics Cambridge DAMTP 1973 (Corpus Christi College) my special sibject has been community building networks- these are the 6 most exciting collaboration opportunities my life has been privileged to map - the first two evolved as grassroots person to person networks before 1996 in tropical Asian places where village women had no access to electricity grids nor phones- then came mobile and solar entrepreneurial revolutions!!

To help mediate such, question every world eventwith optimistic rationalism, my father's 2000 articles at The Economist interpret all sorts of future spins.

1943 marked centenary autobio of The Economist and my teenage dad Norman prepping to be navigator allied bomber command Burma Campaign -thanks to US dad survived, finished in last class of Keynes. before starting 5 decades at The Economist; after 15 years he was allowed to sign one survey a year starting in 1962 with the scoop that Japan (Korea S, Taiwan soon hk singapore) had found development mp0de;s for all Asian to rise. Rural Keynes could end village poverty & starvation; supercity win-win trades could celebrate Neumanns gift of 100 times more tech per decade (see macrae bio of von neumann)
