Retweeted by Tim O'ReillyQ6. Participating in Twitter chats ;-) #EmTechLunchChatA7. There are so many ways for individuals and companies to focus on creativity, empathy, humanity in everyday work! #EmTechLunchChatA7 The #NextEconomy will be about creating what is unique and human. Let AI automate the routine stuff! #EmTechLunchChatA7 As @NickHanauer has pointed out, workers are consumers too. Unless we find ways to pay them, the economy stops working #EmTechLunchChatA7 It’s more important to get business leaders and policy makers thinking about AI than ordinary workers #NextEconomy #EmTechLunchChatA5. It’s a mistake to look at AI replacing jobs. It will first replace and change *tasks*, which will then change jobs. #EmTechLunchChatA3 @uber @lyft are missing the point by framing self driving cars as cost reduction rather than enabling #NextEconomy svcs #EmTechLunchChatA3. Look for the potential for AI to restructure industries. How about driverless cars reinventing medical house calls? #EmTechLunchChatA3. Yesterday, we heard how AI is better at reading genomes than humans. Duh! Use AI to automate the impossible! #EmTechDigital #NextEconomyA3. But the best questions are not what jobs AI will replace, but what new jobs will it let us do that we can’t do today #EmTechLunchChatA3. Call centers are easy targets. Bots/conversational interfaces will totally improve customer experience there #EmTechLunchChat.@gregsbryan The @oreillyAI site and conference are a great place to start #EmTechLunchChatA2. For lots more on Mechanical Turk and AI, follow @Rochelle and @TurkerNational #EmTechLunchChatA2. Microsoft Research’s @marylgray has studied how Amazon Mechanical Turk is largely used for training AI #EmTechLunchChatA2. Yes, we will be training AI for a long time. “AI trainer” is a new job category - unfortunately, not a very good job #EmTechLunchCahtA1. More seriously, lots of bots on slack. Speech and conversational interfaces are about to transform UI big time. #EmTechLunchChat.@brianstorms Yes, he did. I was tweaking his quote to make a bit of fun of the current AI mania. #EmTechLunchChatA1. Spam may be one area to notice. We see lots of spammers repeating posts on this #EmTechLunchChat chat. Many of them are probably bots.A1. Except Clarke said “magic” and I said “AI.” Lots of things start out as “AI”, end up just looking like fancy algorithms #EmTechLunchChatA1. A lot of things that now seem commonplace - e.g. predictive analytics on traffic and routing in maps - once seemed magical.A1.
