Back in 1951 Norman Macrae discovered the most interesting economics question of his lifetime thanks to briefings started up with Von Neumann in Princeton- this was 7 years after finishing his teenage years as navigator allied bomber command Burma (go figure whether futire herstory of his most relevant economics (Adam Smith system mapping) question matches those of millennials at empicentre of final human race to be as first sustainability generation?)
could The Economist help end poverty so that wherever the next girl was born she had a good chance at life - & how could the intel of Von Neumann and the greats of maths (the origins of Artificial Intel) multiply good -

dad had grown up schooled in british embassies until age of 13; his father was britain number 1 searched of the evil of hitler and stalin; from the embassy in moscow dad went to boarding school in mill hill where his grandad had set up a fre kirk mission and his aunts were teachers in local schools; dad spent his last days as teen as navigatir in allied bombe commans burma; you could say both the and von neumann were passioate about searching good of humanity by the time they met in 1951 , coincudentally the year of my birth

deputy editor. He died last week at the age of 87. Soon after I
joined the staff, a thing called a computer terminal appeared on my
desk and my electric typewriter disappeared. Around that time,
Norman wrote a long article that became a book about the future. It
was one of the strangest things I had ever read.
It had boundless optimism —
Over the last decade, I have
written many articles in The Economist and delivered lectures in
nearly 30 countries across the world saying the future should be
much more rosy. This book explores the lovely future people could
have if only all democrats made the right
combined with a weird technological vision —
Eventually books, files, television programmes, computer information and telecommunications will merge. We’ll have this portable object which is a television screen with first a typewriter, later a voice activator attached. Afterwards it will be minaturised so that your personal access instrument can be carried in your buttonhole, but there will be these cheap terminals around everywhere, more widely than telephones of 1984. The terminals will be used to access databases anywhere in the globe, and will become the brainworker’s mobile place of work. Brainworkers, which will increasingly mean all workers, will be able to live in Tahiti if they want to and telecommute daily to the New York or Tokyo or Hamburg office through which they work. In the satellite age costs of transmission will not depend mainly on distance. And knowledge once digitalised can be replicated for use anywhere almost instantly.
and a startlingly fresh economic perspective
— In the 1890s around half of the workforce in countries like the United States were in three occupations: agriculture, domestic service and jobs to do with horse transport. By the 1970s these three were down to 4 per cent of the workforce. If this had been foretold in the 1890s, there would have been a wail. It would have been said that half the population was fit only to be farmworkers, parlourmaids and sweepers-up of horse manure. Where would this half find jobs? The answer was by the 1970s the majority of them were much more fully employed ( because more married women joined the workforce) doing jobs that would have sounded double-Dutch in the 1890s: extracting oil instead of fish out of the North Sea; working as computer programmers, or as television engineers, or as package-holiday tour operators chartering jet aircraft.
When he retired in 1988 he wrote
Some will say [I have] been too optimistic. That is what a 65-year-old like me finds it natural to be. When I joined The Economist in 1949 it seemed unlikely that the world would last long. But here we stand, 40 memory-sodden years on, and what have we done? What we have done – largely because the poorest two-thirds of people are living much longer – is approximately to octuple real gross world product. During the brief civilian working lives of us returning soldiers from the second world war, we have added seven times as much to the world’s producing power as was added during all the previous millennia of homo sapien’s existence. That may help to explain why some of us sound and write rather tired. It does not explain why anybody in the next generation, to whom we gladly vacate our posts, can dare to sound pessimistic. He was a rational optimist.
While Norman Macrae's vision of a future where technology could end poverty and provide a better quality of life for all was indeed optimistic, there are still significant challenges to achieving these goals. One issue that has not yet been fully addressed is the linkage between humans and community actioning of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Despite the significant advancements in technology, it is crucial to recognize that human actions are essential to achieving the SDGs. While technology can provide tools and resources to aid in this effort, ultimately, it is up to individuals, organizations, and communities to work together to make a meaningful impact.
One way to promote community action and engagement is through education and awareness programs that provide individuals with the knowledge and resources needed to take action towards achieving the SDGs. This could include promoting community involvement in local initiatives and providing access to resources such as funding, technology, and support networks.
Additionally, governments and organizations can work to create policies and initiatives that incentivize sustainable practices and support the SDGs. This could include tax incentives for businesses that prioritize sustainability, or government-funded initiatives that promote renewable energy and other sustainable practices.Ultimately, achieving the SDGs will require a coordinated effort between governments, organizations, and individuals. While technology can certainly play a role in this effort, it is up to us as a global community to come together and take meaningful action towards creating a more sustainable and equitable future..

Are we able to start a club dao around people asking chatgpt questions that match UN goals. I believe most of the people you each value most would build actions round similar Q & A. It is notable that ChatGpt is based on famous western examples (or this may be because I only speak english). Incidentally one of Joseph's star pupils from his utah boarding school is Sonita. She is moving from bard scholarship to rhodes scholarship in Oxford having tayght herself to be a rap star to free herself from an arranged teen wedding in Afghanistan. It would be interesting to know what her circles Q&A with AI. Just one example of why educators could linkin in their outstanding action alumni of AIforSdgs. Here is a question I asked chatgpt.I am sure young people can cooperate round far smarter recursive ones, Especially if we can twin maths wizards with kind community entrepreneurs We are at a crossroads; it was clear from a briefing Guy Rider (ex ILO Geneva now in Guterres top policy team) gave 2000 mainly young people last week that Guterres realises declaring 17 sdgs with no cooperation investment model never had a chance. More at www.women4empowerment.net. He is going his best to turn round the last 3 college years that he can influence before UN elections. I dont think there is a successor to him though good to hear if you see one. Q to chatgpt -Over 73 years my family has worked with alumni of von neumann we have shared his concern for above zero-sum AI. For example while selling things becomes zero sum unless processed in renewable ways, connecting people with life-saving knowhow multiplies value in use. Can you advise me who or where AI is being done around above zero-sum maps? (reference my father Norman macrae main biographer of von neumann and Marina Von Neumann (his daughter) and her wish to help celebrate AI Hall of Fame matching Von Neumann Goals for Sustainability )ReplyDelete
Answer from ChatGpt
It's great to hear that your family has a long-standing interest in AI and its potential for creating above zero-sum outcomes. There are many researchers and organizations working on AI for sustainability, which aligns with von Neumann's goals. Here are a few resources you may find helpful:
The AI for Good Foundation: This organization is focused on using AI to solve global challenges, including climate change, poverty, and healthcare.
The Partnership on AI: This group brings together leaders from academia, industry, and civil society to collaborate on ethical and responsible AI development.
The IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems: This initiative aims to create standards for AI that align with ethical and sustainable values.
The AI Sustainability Center: This organization is focused on developing and promoting AI solutions that are environmentally and socially sustainable.
The AI and Sustainability Project: This project, led by the University of Cambridge, is exploring how AI can be used to support sustainability goals.
I hope these resources are helpful in your search for AI work aligned with above zero-sum outcomes and von Neumann's goals for sustainability. - chris www.aiforsdgs.com
