AI & the New Attention Economy
“Fracking for human attention.” “Purpose economy.” Thoughtful, intelligent and provocative post Joe. You’ve still got it.
I personally am quite concerned about one particular point: “How will AI-created movies feature minorities and underrepresented communities?” I would add not just movies, but copy, ads, and all AI-generated content. Garbage-in, garbage-out - there needs to be a concerted effort by the AI-community to take this into consideration now, not try to course-correct this down the line as an afterthought.
Great post, Joe. The big question, which you pose so eloquently, is: can we put AI to work on enhancing uniquely human experiences with the same vigor that will certainly be applied to making AI serve moneyed interests? I hope so. Glad to see we’ve got bright minds working on it.
Definitely had my mind working while reading this. While one part of me thought. I consume too much content and need to reduce. The other thought how much is my ego involved in wanting to keep up with everyone so I can participate in "the conversation" . At the end of the day I'm always left with the same quote when my brain get's over stimulated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOQwaYVAWcw
