What scares me the most is the massive separation between scenario one and and scenario two. I fear that our political institutes and civil society will not be able respond to the change quick enough. Far too few politicians today are highlighting the immense challenge our societies face from AI. What for example, will be the consequence of automation in the context of manufacturing and production? What happens when the tens of millions of manufacturing jobs that paved the way for China’s remarkable development do not get passed on to cheaper labor markets in Vietnam or Africa but rather return to developed countries to be done by robots? What impact will this have on these countries that can’t afford such technologies?
