En route to South Korea, I stopped off in Silicon Valley to meet with Members of the Silicon Valley Node of The Millennium Project and others interested in helping to create a workshop on to explore long-range strategies to address issues raised in the Future Work/Technology 2050 Global Scenarios. The meeting was held at Singularity University hosted Jonathan Knowles, head of Academic Programs.
The workshop is tentatively planned as a 1.5 day session for late Fall or Winter. It was suggested the one valuable result could be an open collective intelligence platform that integrates the results of all the workshops around the world and invites continuous updates and improvements. The “platform” should act as a kind of ‘expert system’ to allow “continuous updates and improvements” informed by real policy strategies, impacts, and adjustments, from government and major corporations down to the individual level. For every input, at any level, an organization or individual should be able to anticipate what the reactions of other players and output might be. From outputs, it should be able to show what is both politically and economically feasible and sustainable.
In addition to Singularity University other sponsors/partners to be explored are Autodesk, Carnegie Endowment, Stanford University, Governor’s Office California, City of San Jose, Intel, SRI, and RAND. Brock Hinzmann will call the workshop steering committee together once every two weeks or month to review progress.
