What Is FinTech? The Basics
My overarching conclusion is that in essence we have given away the keys to our kingdom and have opened Pandora's box.
2. A look back in time.
But a Neanderthal head bashing conquest would have needed some other traits and skills, and these are the main unique differentiators between us, hominid species and the rest of the animal kingdom.
3. AI Sci-fi versus reality.
4. AI yesterday and AI today.
The question is does AI need consciousness or understanding to manipulate us?
5. The Mechanics of Manipulation.
6. The Implications of Mind games.
These LLMs already write way better than the vast majority of us, have been trained on more information than any of us can read in a lifetime, and have the ability to mimic human-like interaction that will have unbelievable mental health effects. The agents being built will connect with us at an intimate level, leading us to share personal information or trust them more than they would a human. They have absolutely no understanding of the consequences of their actions, but the human operators do and the constant monitoring and analysis of users’ behaviour will allow these systems to become even more connected and better at driving conversations for their end goal that they have been programmed to achieve. information about the intent, leaving the person with the freedom to make an informed choice.
7. Morals, Ethics, and Values.
8. AI is going to write our future and there is nothing we can do to stop it.
9. Regulation, are we too late?
10. So where do you go from here?
Let’s just take the fluffy out of what a utopian future looks like. It is not skipping around with flowers in our hair as portrayed way too often, it basically looks like a global society where ethics, morals and values are equally understood, respected and adhered to, where human constructed belief systems take a back seat and our real needs become the priority. We are humans, we feel emotions, have sensibilities, and there will always be disagreements and points of view, but now we need to put them aside so that we can actually all benefit from what we have at our fingertips. Does that not sound like a better future for us all, because if we don’t let this run as we always have then the opposite is very likely?
