A Virtual High Five to all...as I hope all enjoy this "closing thought" on the possible realities..onward to Q4 with all its' possiblities:

How Humans Can Thrive in a World of AI




What it is: Unanimous AI founder Dr. Louis Rosenberg recently gave a TEDxKC talk in which he posed a compelling question: Is there hope for humans in an AI world? His talk, which showcased the same UNU swarm intelligence system that used humans to correctly predict the Kentucky Derby superfecta and the outcome of the MLB playoffs, spotlighted how humans can amplify their intelligence with advanced algorithms. Dr. Rosenberg posits that the "hive mind" his technology enables can help us retain our humanity while also leveraging the potential of AI and machine learning.

Why it's important: Further evidence that human-technology teamwork can help entrepreneurs and big thinkers work more effectively and address global challenges. "By swarming," says Dr. Rosenberg, "groups average about 130 percent amplification in intelligence over the individuals who comprise it. By thinking together using Swarm AI, we might be able to finally solve the hardest problems we face -- poverty, inequality, sustainability."
