As artificial intelligence (AI) becomes better at performing narrow tasks traditionally done by humans, how will governments create policies to protect peoples’ livelihoods? Should it be up to governments to do so or will it create a new generation of entrepreneurs? Will AI create a new breed of welfare recipients or will it spur governments to dramatically reform welfare? Some have argued that, while some jobs will be displaced, new jobs will be created in their place.
A new book titled A.I. Supremacy: Winning in the Era of Machine Learning reveals that the pace of progress and change is occurring at exponential rates each year and is becoming so great that many in AI and ML community believe that in as little as a couple of decades from now human level AI will no longer be the realm of fantasy.
