Le what you are doing sounds very exciting. My father Norman met John Von Neumann in 1951, and agreed informally to be a journalist of will AI systems over 80 years exponentially sustain or end the world? Having been a teen in world war 2 (myanmar alloied bomber command) he was next tutored by Keynes to ask whether systemic designers of economics would save or end the world? Whether world designers meet at world economic or world ai forum or world biotech forum ...their question is also the UN's question, and imo every true teacher's question. Dad's biography of von neumann was published 30 years ago; this month sees only the second neumann bio "man from the future". Von neumann's daughter Marina would like to help connect a panel of those who see neumann alumni putting the world (or particular sectors eg health) back on sustainable trajectory. This is all beyond my brain power but I will scout out for her whom I can - If there is someone in the whole of Alibaba or the whole of your networks of practice who would like to directly chat with Marina Von Neuman at any time please say. I would love to have coffee with you any time if I can be of general use. I worked for Price Waterhouse Coopers for 10 years (eg haemoplilia drug market) so I understand transparency. I am just a mathematician. It would be the world's biggest maths error if von neumanns consequence was extinction. Just as someone like Fei-Feil Li seems to keep Stanford Neumann Alumni at 63 responsible to AI's overall purpose of saving humanity, any other nominations you or your networks have of AIforgood would always be most wonderful to hear about. Back in 1977 in The Economist dad's survey of China anticipated Chinese and Asian thinking would be at least as critical as the English mindset in our species evolutionary journey. Something that by 1995 Ma in Seattle was observing (no wonder he likes movie Forest Gump). 80% of Scots are nationless in their livelihoods (and have "Common Agenda" concerns since Adam Smith's 1760 observation of engineering start ups) . Today, it feels as if our hypothesis is aligned to global financiers like Dalio (New World Order), culture profs like Acharya, as well as Singapore mahbubani's latest book which China Centre for Globalisation is distributing for free. You wouldn't happen to know Ying Lowrey at Tsinghua -she helped form Aliresearch around 2010 focused on the idea that small and medium enterprise networks communally advance the human race (combined with decade back-from-future goal's like JFK's moon race, my fathers preferred organisational format for fundamental co-creativity).
