How Artificial Intelligence Will Change the World in Coming Decades

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • Kai-Fu Lee’s book, “AI Superpowers: China, and Silicon Valley, and the New World Order,” discusses the implications of artificial intelligence, to help people make wiser educational and career choices in coming decades
  • While AI can enhance and work symbiotically with a number of professions, such as lawyers, doctors, government officials, CEOs and scientists, many jobs will become obsolete as AI starts beating human performance
  • Telemarketing jobs, loan officers, customer service, fruit and berry pickers, dishwashers, drivers, assembly line inspectors and many others will eventually become a thing of the past
  • In many ways, the Chinese are head and neck ahead of Silicon Valley. For example, WeChat has the functionality of Facebook, iMessage, Uber, Expedia, Evite, Instagram, Skype, PayPal, Grubhub, Amazon, LimeBike and WebMD, all in one smartphone app
  • AI works by looking at huge amounts of data, for example, purchase patterns on Amazon, to learn your preferences and habits, plus audio and video data, paired with facial and speech recognition. All this user data will eventually lead to the creation of autonomous robots and vehicles

Kai-Fu Lee, Ph.D., a leading expert on artificial intelligence (AI), a venture capitalist and author of “AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order,” has spent decades working for tech giants such as Apple, Microsoft and Google, both in China and Silicon Valley. He got his Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University, one of the most prestigious AI institutions in the U.S., if not the world.

His professional achievements came at a price, however. In 2013, Lee came down with Stage 4 lymphoma. While the focus of this interview is the impact of AI, his health journey is an interesting testimony to what can happen if you work too hard.
