Santi's Vision for Well-being and AI:
Starting with the first humans, technology always has been a powerful transformation tool that has changed the way of life of the humanity several times until to arrive to our days. Seeing this back with some perspective, the general well-being achieved for a so big population is amazing. Nowadays any medium-level person living in Europe has a better life that any King had 1000 years before. I only can see two objectives in this process:
1) On one hand, the distribution of each productivity improvement hasn’t been easy, and sometimes had to be dramatic, only achieved through big protests and revolutions.
2) On the other hand, a continuous increment of population is something pushing in the opposite direction of humans well-being and planet sustainability.
Now we have the opportunity to do things better with a technology that could have, perhaps, the biggest impact ever in humans life: Artificial Intelligence.
We also should remember that, as much important as technology is the competition between us (or similar incentives) to make things happen. So, for me, the key question to align AI and well-being is to elaborate the right incentives system. At a first glance, it seems we might look for a way to assign a monetary value to well-being (it could have a direct translation to a minor-cost of sanity systems, for instance). Or, if we are not able to find the way, at least promote from the governments the AI improvements aligned with that well-being.
