Confluence of Revolutionary AI Technologies, Entrepreneurship, and Doing Good for All

Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are rapidly progressing while their applications are revolutionizing the basic concepts of jobs or how we work, and ultimately how we live on Earth. Researchers and scholars are predicting that by 2025 when AI matures, almost half of current jobs will be lost [1] [2]. We, humans, are the creator of AI. Therefore, we have the responsibility to make use of AI for creating a better life for all. Like many others, we believe that the key is to augment human intelligence with AI towards a more advanced and universal intelligence.

The objective of this meetup group is to become a catalyst for finding ways by which AI can create new and better opportunities in place of the jobs that it eliminates. We want to bring people from diverse backgrounds and interests together to spark the beginning of millions of AI startups! We believe by being small but effective startups are the right ventures to initiate positive change with AI. Our vision is that by forming this group we will together accelerate the birth of a million AI-powered startups that create meaningful work while making life better for many others by augmenting human intelligence. With the help of augmented intelligence every human will be able to create his or her own job—his or her own startup that creates sustainable work for the person’s entire life.

We are open to anyone who believes in the power of intelligence to join this meetup group. We are hoping that people with an ambition to build better life for all humans on Earth with a pragmatic but bold approach will join us.

Introduction to Human Evolution - Wellesley

Introduction to Human Evolution

Explore human evolutionary history through the human fossil, archaeological and genetic records.

 

About this course
As contemporary humans, we are a product of our evolutionary past. That past can be directly observed through the study of the human fossil record, the materials preserved for archaeological study, and the DNA of living and extinct human populations. This course will provide an overview of human evolutionary history from the present–contemporary human variation in a comparative context–through our last common ancestor with the living great apes, some 5-7 million years in the past. Emphasis will be placed on major evolutionary changes in the development of humans and the methodological approaches used by paleoanthropologists and related investigators to develop that knowledge.

The course will begin by asking basic questions about how evolution operates to shape biological variation and what patterns of variation look like in living humans and apes. We will then look at how the human lineage first began to differentiate from apes, the rise and fall of the Australopithecines, the origin and dispersal of the genus Homo, and eventually the radical evolutionary changes associated with the development of agricultural practices in the past 15,000 years. Throughout the course students will be exposed to the primary data, places and theories that shape our understanding of human evolution.

Introduction to Metrics for Smart Cities - IEEE

Introduction to Metrics for Smart Cities

Develop a basic understanding of the elements of a Smart City and learn the impact of using metrics to measure its performance.

 

About this course
The concept of a Smart City holds much promise for improving the quality of life for city dwellers, but what exactly do we mean by “Smart City?” It means aligning information technologies to citizens’ needs in order to enhance their day-to-day lives by increasing efficiency, lowering costs, and engaging more directly with city dwellers. Smart City has emerged as an interdisciplinary concept that covers different aspects related to big cities, including the infrastructure that enables communication between channels and entities for overcoming economic backwardness in a community, and for addressing differences between various urban and suburban zones. A dynamic model is observed that can be analyzed as a complex system. Since a city can´t be visualized in only one perspective, this course tackles some of its individual sectors to obtain the key performance indicators that are essential to improving the quality of life, including: urbanization, communication, education, and economy. Quantifying that data is useful for estimating consumed resources, forecasting shortages, and correcting damage in a timely manner.

The Divine Comedy: Dante’s Journey to Freedom, Part 3 (Paradiso)

Leaving Earth behind and beneath, the Pilgrim Dante is transformed into the disciple of Beatrice. She now becomes his true path, la diritta via, along which he gradually discovers the Joy that Christianity identifies as the hope of Resurrection.

 

About this course
Joy is the business of Paradiso, that much is clear; but could there be a more mysterious word in the whole realm of human imagination than “Joy?” “Joy” boggles the human imagination because it asks us to follow the vector of hope to its maximal extension and intention, until it arrives at that point which Dante locates “nel mezzo,” at the very center of everything, at that point where every centripetal and centrifugal force of both the physical universe of energy and the symbolic universe of creative imagination and meaning first arise and finally return.

From beginning to end, the Pilgrim’s progress through Paradiso is enabled and guided by his enactment of the role to which he consented in the climactic episode of the Purgatorio in the garden of the Earthly Paradise. Now leaving Earth behind and beneath, the Pilgrim is transformed into the disciple; specifically, the disciple of Beatrice. She now becomes his true path, la diritta via, along which he gradually discovers the Joy that Christianity identifies as the hope of Resurrection.

The Ethics of Eating - Cornell University

The Ethics of Eating

Explore the ethical issues you confront each time you decide what to eat or purchase food. Join a diverse group of philosophers, food scientists, activists, industry specialists, and farmers in this exciting discussion.

 

About this course
You face a difficult moral decision every time you decide what to eat. What impact should animal rights have on your decision? Is the suffering involved in meat, egg and dairy production bad enough that you should go vegan? How do your food choices affect the economy and the environment? Should you become a locavore? Should you eat only sustainably produced, “farm to table” food? Or is factory-farmed food more efficient and ultimately better for the environment?

We also face difficult food-related questions at the political-social level. Should states restrict their citizens’ food choices so as to encourage healthy eating? Should governments grant patents on genetically modified crops? And how do we, as a society, implement effective food policies for a rapidly expanding world population?

This class will provide the tools required to reflect clearly and effectively on these challenging questions.
