AI will inevitably be better than us, and it's naive to think that it won't. We have an edge...for a time.

Updated: Jun 14

"How should we prepare the next generation for a world where AI is quickly advancing?"

Here's our message :

Embrace the Human Edge: Focus on areas where AI will take time to catch up. These are often the skills where you got into trouble in school: socializing, building relationships, and exploring a wide range of subjects. Be a generalist, skating across the tapestry of disparate ideas, rather than diving deep into a single niche where AI excels.

Hone Language Skills: Develop structured thinking and communication. As natural language becomes the dominant programming skill, the ability to articulate and express ideas clearly will be invaluable.

Think Sustainably: Learn about farming and building sustainable systems. These skills not only ground us in reality but also prepare us for a future where sustainability is key. In a SHTF type of scenario, knowing how to farm your own food, clean your own water, or other boy/girl scout skills may save a life.

Creative Thinking: Encourage creativity and innovation. AI can analyze and optimize, but the spark of human creativity and the ability to think outside the box is uniquely ours...for a time. If anything, the enjoyment of human creative expression isn't diminished by a machines ability to reproduce it.

Emotional Intelligence: Develop empathic and emotionally intelligence language. Learn sensory acuity, body language, and pick up on subtleties other may miss such as facial expressions or body language. AI can process data, but understanding and managing human emotions remains a distinctively human trait...for a time.

Adaptability: Cultivate adaptability and lifelong learning. The pace of technological change means that the ability to continuously learn and adapt is crucial. For now that may mean leaning how to prompt - but in the not so distant future it may mean adapting to a neural implant as we try to out compete with each other at the speed of thought.

By focusing on these areas, we can prepare our children not just to survive, but to thrive in the age of AI. This is an exciting opportunity to enhance humanity, not to be overshadowed by technology, but to rise alongside it.

One thing is for sure. The next decade will look nothing like the last decade.
