|Stories Without Notice
AI and the future of work. And the Universal Basic Income.
Richard Di Natale gave a speech at the National Press Club this month, and said, “With the radical way that the nature of work is changing … our current social security system is outdated,” Di Natale said. “It can’t properly support those experiencing underemployment, insecure work and uncertain hours.” So he called for Australia to explore a Universal Basic Income.
But what happens when the need for humans to do work, shrinks, due to AI and robots?
This is the article Nigel was referring to in his question: Chart proves AI a threat to jobs
In the opening chapter of the book, Life In Half A Second, by Matthew Michalewicz, it says, the tragedy of life isn’t that we only have half a second, the tragedy is that we waste it. Therefore, let’s not waste any more time. Welcome.
I haven’t yet worked out an eloquent way of explaining why your book is called life in half a second. Can you give us your pitch?
Let’s work through the doors. Door one. Clarity. This, as it turns out, is harder than it seems. It has taken me months to see through the false goals, eg, things I THINK I will describe success to me. How do we sort out what is true to us as success vs what we have pushed down our throats from Hollywood and the media, and even in entrepreneur circles?
Can you explain Reticular Activation?
Door two. Desire. How do we hone our inner voice and tune it truly to our hearts?
What things will block our clarity process?
Door three. Belief. Get real. You must believe in yourself. Self-belief is critical to success, even more critical than your actual abilities. That sounds inspiring and dangerous at the same time. What do you mean by it?
You make some strong points about your environment – friends, family, books, media, etc. How savage do we need to be in landscaping our social environments?
Door four. Knowledge. Is this where your road map for success is different from the Dress For Success rage of the 80s? You have to do the placebo activity of dressing for success BUT you also need to be working to a plan?
Best sources of knowledge?
Door five. Action. Nothing you do in life will amount to anything if you don’t take action. Why do so many of us stall?
How big is the fear factor? And how necessary is fear?
So, it’s not buy the book and have success, is it. How long should it take someone to really work through your book?
|Is It News?
Nigel Dobson-Keeffe challenges the panel to pick the fake story from three stories from South Australia’s past. And Adrian, one of Ralf’s popular drivers, also steps in for the challenge.
