Education will help humanity thrive

While machines may move quicker than us, they miss what makes our species really special: our ability to trust, cooperate, create and innovate.

“If we do not change the way we teach, 30 years from now, we’re going to be in trouble,” said Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba Group, China’s e-commerce giant at Davos 2018.

The world is indeed in a big transformation because of technology. Manual, repetitive jobs are becoming more and more obsolete. People worry about AI, about robots. Whether you worry or not, they will come.  Our question should be how we could best embrace them and use them to make a positive difference.

Jack Ma talks about the importance of “soft skills, creative skills. Research skills, the ability to find information, synthesise it, make something of it.”

His talk (about 1 hour) is a must-watch for educators, business leaders, employees, students, and in fact all of us humans:

Once you’ve had a chance to watch, I’d love to hear your thoughts:

How do you think AI will transform your business or industry landscape over the next decades? Are you or your company embracing the benefits of new technologies and AI?

Important: share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. will be deleted as they come across as spammy.

Looking forward to hearing your voice on this one.
