Partners sought for final edition of 2025 report

 It is likely that the main fieldbook of our last edition will impact the user like a travel guide to 1000 very good human intelligences

There are several inspirations to how future history genre of 2025 report but the one understood my today's co-editors starts in 1945 with Economist Editor Geoffrey Crowther. Geffrey edited London's weekly journal The Economist for over a decade before and after world war 2's conclusion. He also edited the centenary autoboigraphy of The Economist in 1943. As he said this was a unique opportunity to make sense of 100 year journalism instead of weekly reporting

In 1945 the exponentially deepest engineering question was could the impacts of engineers 2025-1945 celebrate more human good relationships around mother earth than the media and electricity engines begun out of Switzerland's IRU in 1865.

If the new engines of 1865 had root caused 2 world wars, it was likely that consequences of Engines 2025-1945 woul be be expoentially far better of far worse. As a Keynesian, Crowther was interested in what locks in possinbilities of next generations futures. My family entreeed into Crowrher's inquiry as dad had spent his last days as teen nanigatir allied bomer command burma, surviving he was in Keynes last class before Crowther hired dad and by 1951 sent dat to Priceton/New York to ask Von Neumann (and his NET: Einstein, Turing) about expoential multipliers

During the fisst 13 years that The Economist sever quesyioning of leaders included the NET's expected accelerations , Kennedy, Prince Charles and Japan's Emperor influenced the future - see; in effcet the pacific ocean (california to the coastal belth Jpaan Korea Taiwan HK and Singapore) had become an alternative innovation space to the atlantic theatre (Us east coast, and the 3 euoopes of isnads, of itu and central europe, and the EU's 6first 6 countries og 1955 which faf observed as only journalist Messina 1955)

So as we search for very good intelligences - 4 centre of gravities worth including:

how stanfrd became epicentre of global competition of training comuter brans (Fei-Fei Li epiecente before and after 2012)

the consequence of Jensen huang beettinng furtire comter design on 2012's ai breakthrough

the consequences of hassabis desinging intelligence games martching einstein's natural science revolution of 1905!

the cobsewquences of King Charles inviting commonwealth and turing worlds to LM Kings Ebglish in AI World series from Bletchley 2023, Korea and Parus, and why not space yot place digiral twins AI Soverigty

For Scots we could go back earlier. In 1758 Smith had asked what wil be the triangulaisation of 

1 natures systems

2 humans moral sentiments

3 man mafe (aeruficial) engines that his Glasgow University compatriot James Watt was emerging

Smith's explorations of compound systems are context rich. Scitlabd had become a coloy of London Kings since 1710s. Smith wanted to see a continent nit just one bellicose island be free to design enginnering futures. So he wasnt unhapply when Celtic friends led tea parties and US independence though Smith would not hav intended doubling down of Englosh Empire on two thirs of humans who were Asian 

 While we are looking forclues to crossroads that spiun rounf sysyems - its interestin to ask when did the King's english become the lingua franca of world trade.  

When it comes to LLM (Large Language Mapping) it helps to see when did English become the world's business language - somewhere between 1666 when dutch gave the english what became new york, late 1690s when Newton turned from cambridge science academic to master of London Mint (newly designed pounda gold standard) or 1730s start up of Lloyds; in any event this was before the start of engineering 1760 an birth of independeent usa 1776

Alas Poor Bard

 Bard appears to have been the first and last chat with deep wit. I could ask him to take any current crisis abd replay in in a will shakespeare conetxt and nobody did it better

But recently not only did google end bard but their idea of diversity was a day when gemini artwork turned everone black from pope fracis to hitler. This wont do - deep data is what a lot more work needs attendung to- not altmans demanding 7 trillion dollars to fulfil his general arrogance


Here are some profiles - of course any errors are solely mine 


VC is a Taiwanese American living in Los Angeles- he achieved 3 engineering doctorates at Yale, MIT and Berkeley - then led 3 university systems from around 2008 building business school of Peking university, then Hong Kong -Shenzen system of universities, then vice chancellor of Bangladesh global poverty university of fazle abed  Intelligence building 8th most populous nation

I was very sad to hear of the departure last week of MIT's late great Edward Roberts - I met him briefly 3 decades after i had spent 1980s compiling mit/harvard databank on worldwide societal needs (still a best of king imo) 
probably nobody did more than ER to ensure every discipline discovered its own entrepreneurial breakthrough students

Roughly RW's team out of MIT have presented at both world economic forum and ted how they can take a historical series of place updates (legislative or cultural solutions) and after digitalising use AI to re-establish that places deepest/diverse intel

Its these sorts of deep data treasures that compose very good AI at least as far as 73 years work on von Neumann's and Turing's diaries indicates - so through my alma mater in Cambridge England in America I am making some connections with those analysing the 250 million protein Alphafold2 database of deep mind with its leaps in biotech and climate intel

In general whats unique about King Charles call to unite ai world series is linking who's science is designing deep data not who's just general ai chatting

In the last paragraphs of this presentation by Taiwan and American's latest tech genius Nvidia Jensen Huang - he says he wishes his GPUs would be used to connect chat with deep local cultures/language not AI general woffle. He's already given 50 million dollar to his alma mater Oregon state

Is there any idea we can come up with? I would have thought Soros last promise to Abed to connect open society universities was all about local language intel and deep community trust. For example of 2024's urgency, Brooklyn library is becoming more likely to help with us deep data diversity than the UN campus in Manhattan the way politics is spinning. The civil society futures event i attended Thursday had slipped back on every millennial intel dimension debated a year earlier.

What sort of (Architeture of) Intel mifghty be gathered from the only person to have spent 50 years building a top 10 nation in popluulation from bottom up? Well. first lets clarify. He focused pon developing rural peoples who were 90% of the nation at the birth of bagladesh. At the tome the nationa govermnment baredly had the finamces tp look after national securotys and the 10% living oin the city. The rural people witjh no electricity grods were literally beyond their initial ability to serve. It ha[ened that Fazle abed spent hos life savings on revui,ding a meta vilage of 15000 homes and then found himself im,mediuately ersponsbiole for designing buinseess however small that solaved challenges like startavt -eg growing rice  or dyoing from illnesses anyone in a city would have advivce on how to cure. Within 2 yeras he found that at elast 1000 small bsueinss now needed finacial services, and he went t0o the goverbment assuming they would want tpo be the bank. And wws told we still dont have the ability to do that in such a re,otte place. So he started microfiance serbices but pelkase note tehse were offered to those whose value chains his microfrnachsies had designed. Barring ilnness of natural disasters therse were as risk free as any bankeing portfolio anywhere provided you were located to serve them. Moreover Fqmzle Abed didnt hire special bankres - be basically asked thraienrs of then microftabchsie to keep the banking books too. these peopel were only too glad later when tech permited them to get baclk to atrtining fuioll time.
Abed chnaged aid by being committed to the svcoaia busines model wherever possible. When he did pitch for a grant he preferred to be rsearching a world chlass solution the grantee might want elsewhere. Its true he was lucky with the first maoin grant he got. He had enetrered unicef competition of year of teh child. He'd rehearsed how to help mothers apply rorla rehydration to stop infangts dying ftom diarrhea. His solution was so effective that the prize was exyedned to training the whole mnation in oral rehdrayion and emanwhiel unicef extended the lesson across many tropical rural places including chinna whios becamne hugely grateful to abed. Tere was not suggestion taht eiother country would invest in te other but as both raced empower over abilion bilagers to end extereme poveryty - tehy swapped siolutions like rich rice varaionst worked best where.
The elssons on human dev economics intel that c an be explored from abed's expereince 1072 to 201h9 fit into 2 halves; 25 yeras where partenrs platfor,ms involved workd of nout or nob or =of print networking as vilagfers still had no acecss toe elctriocity-; then frok 1995 what hapoened when partenrs brough solar and mobile. When my father died the japan ambassador to  nbangaldesh knowinbg father had celebrated rural kenesiansm entrepreneurs across asia since 1962 kindlt=y staged 2 dinner barisntormings ession with fazle abed. Whilst I wanted (and eventually wenbt back) with jourbalsut stduents 16 tiems to rewind to the top 30 cooperations from both eras (isolated vilages) vilages leapfroging- abed was very interetyed during his last dec ade oin a chalenge he and steve jobs hasd set each other in 2001.

2025 Report - final cooperation edition - what goods can people unite where first to access 100 times more intel-tech per decade
My family has been researching future ops and threats of 100 times more intel-tech since my birth year, 1951, when dad norman met von neumann. Or if you count my grandfathers' works since the 1920s. My mathernal grandad. Sir Kemmeth Kemp,  mediated visions with Gandhi out of Bombay (today's Mumbai) as that places chief justice over 20 years, before his last project: writing up for London the legalese of the independence of the quarter of humans on the subcontinent of India. My paternal grandad was Britain's main diplomat connecting intel on the evils of Hitler and Stalin. Dad was home-schooled in British Embassies including Stalin's Moscow to his early teens. He spent his las days as a teen navigating planes in alled bomber command Burma. So when dad met von neumann and agreed on behalf of The Economist to apply his survey on goods, they both had deep experiences of bads. They both interpreted ending poverty as designing a world in which next girl born had a fair chance to live out of every community 
Agendas of humanly valuable intel. Above all Neuman  was interested in mapping way above zero sum value exchanges. Thus when humans share life critical community knowhow value multiplies in use unlike consuming up things or printing paper currencies detached from standards other than political whim Von neumann and friend Einstein concerns included: End asymetries of the 8 biggest powers that had ended in 2 world wars; celebrate inclusion the up to 70% of beings that the colonial era had left out of access to electricity grids or telecoms; Outlast stalin as the one (insane) leader who wholly disagreed with the actions the UN was founded to serve; Mediate the threats of the maths Goats two defining future contributions to  to physical energy and brain power. Neumann pit it like this: the energy source my networks are helping to develop will make scientists both the most hated and wanted  citizens of any country; my other project the computer's augmentation of intelligence will one day be even more important- and potentially even more dangerous.
Welcome to roadmapping the 2020's you all are intergenerationally responsible for.

Since the college year 2015-16 the world has lived with mediating the 17 sdgs framework, together with the emergence of UN2 digital roadmapping. And since spring 2016 at the 80th birthday party of Fazle Abed, the Digital Cooperation framework has emerged. Whilst this represents the cooperation development voices of the poorest billion womens and poorest billion men's development experiences since 1951, it also represents the new university brainstorming begun in 2001 between Fazle Abed and Mr and Mrs Steve Jobs. Neither Steve nor Fazle had completed 4 year pare certificated before more practical matters shaped their young adult lives. Thank goodness they weren't chained to academia's paper chases....THE nEWs. Although world trade growth may look as if it is driven by East-West shipping across pacific and atlantic oceans, North South counts exponentially too. Its the N-S Eurasian space that gestated the 2 world wars.

Clean water


771 million people in the world live without clean water. That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. The majority live in isolated areas and spend hours each day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep girls out of school, but it steals the time women could be using to earn an income. And the water often carries diseases that make everyone sick.

charity: water is on a mission to end the global water crisis.Since 2006, we’ve funded clean water for more than 16.8 million people in 29 countries alongside 54 dedicated local partners.

Sameh Ghali, Egypt (Ashoka Fellow since 2006)

Sameh has introduced a new system of community participation in sanitation design, creating a sewage system for smaller villages to connect their household septic tanks by gravity-fed pipes to a communal filtering facility. These sewage systems are being promoted in villages who are deprived of hygienic living conditions and will not likely have government programs’ support in the next decade or two. Sameh encourages participation in the local communities for their own sanitation design and implementation, creating a sense of ownership and pride while improving environment and health conditions.
