The Coming AI Revolution

Irving Wladawsky-Berger summarizes a (paywalled) article from Foreign Affairs by James Manyika and Michael Spence summarizing the potential impact of AI on global productivity. Key to me (and I think to educators generally) is this item buried in the fifth of six points: "Despite its enormous promise, AI is unlikely to trigger an economy-wide jump in productivity, or to support sustainable and inclusive growth, if its use is left to market forces." There are several reasons why this would be the case: we need to prevent misuse and harmful effects, we need to prevent the concentration of ownership in a few corporate hands, and we need to steer AI toward wider public benefits and not just profit-making enterprise.
