Be a better human, not a better computer.

I think AI being so good they can do the production-line type of work for us is a GOOD thing.

It frees us up to be human instead of training ourselves to be better at things that computers are good at: storage, retrieval, sequencing, logic, rule-based inference.

What makes human, human? How can we be the most-human human?

I’m realising lately that I’ve spent most of my adult life training to be a better computer. Learning to code, being logical, critical thinking, systematic, methodical, codifying, formulating, reverse engineering, reductionistic, dismissed emotions as less-valid for decision making.

I think all those are necessary, and I’ve reached a point of diminishing return. Now is a good time for me to focus on learning how to be a better human.
