The Singularity and its Potential Impact on Macro Economics and Technological Breakthroughs
The Singularity is defined as AI becoming orders of magnitude more intelligent than all humans combined.
While AI may solve many problems, certain resources such as desirable and arable land, fresh potable water, and natural resources will remain scarce.
On the other hand, a hyperabundance of cognitive labor and information will become abundant, leading to potential breakthroughs in high energy physics, disease genetics and aging, and material science. The singularity may also lead to social changes, as most jobs become irrelevant, and society may shift its focus to creativity, exploration, and self-improvement.
Self-determination theory and the potential for new social structures
he risks and factors that could hinder a positive outcome. Video games satisfy the three pillars of self-determination theory, which is why so many people play them.
With the potential of AI to provide more autonomy and human connection, retirees can still find opportunities to challenge themselves.
However, the risks of AI development and control, distribution of benefits, regulatory environment, public perception and adaptation, and global cooperation and collaboration are all factors that could hinder a positive outcome. Additionally, the concept of currency and the management of necessary resources will also play a role in shaping future social structures.
AI Arms Race and Future of Corporations
The biggest risk in a post-singularity world is an AI arms race, and every nation will be part of it.
The corporations are intrinsically amoral, and productivity will continue to rise while the headcount goes down, resulting in the rise of mega corporations with almost no employees, entirely run by shareholders and AI.
