THE AI FUTURE: ARE WE OPENING PANDORA’S BOX OR CREATING AN “AGE OF ABUNDANCE”?   

Is Elon Musk onto something with his vision of an 'Age of Abundance,' or should we be wary of potential existential threats reminiscent of Terminator? This course delves into the world of AI as the latest tool in our human toolkit, examining whether Musk's optimism holds true or if we're in for significant disruptions across the economic, social, and political landscapes. We'll navigate through intriguing topics such as the historical evolution of tools, energy, and population growth; the rise of the Emerging Economy marked by commodification and eCommerce Platforms; the exponential growth of the Service Sector on a global scale; the uncertainties surrounding the Gig Economy and the perpetual quest for Work/Life Balance. Finally, we'll ponder the fate of Homo Sapiens, in this new landscape. The course will be an open forum enabled by PowerPoint presentations and a brief written synopsis of scholarly articles, posted the week before each class meeting.
