The smart technology era is at our fingertips, for now. We have limited time as a society to steer this technology in a direction that will serve humanity. We can create new ways to educate our children, heal disease and empower the poor. All of us are responsible. It is not up to the large corporations or those in Silicon Valley. We have to work together and find ways to create a better world. AI and smart technology are a gift to humanity. May we not repeat the multitude of mistakes of the past and simply monetise or gain control with this tool. We need to democratise technology. We need to leave a gift to our children now and into the future.
