Episode 41 - Mo Gawdat on the threat of A.I & how the best parts of our own humanity are what will save us

In today's episode I am joined once again by the wonderful Mo Gawdat (if you haven't already listened to his previous episode, flick back and hear his incredibly inspiring outlook and story). Mo is the Ex Chief Business Officer of Google X & Author of International Best-Seller Solve For Happy & his new Best Seller Scary Smart and a serial Entrepreneur. In this episode we discuss the amazing combination of Artificial Intelligence & our own humanity, in his incredible new book Scary Smart which highlights the impending reality of Artificial Intelligence from his unique perspective of having built some of the A.I we now all take for granted & the truth about where it is going, but how our own best qualities of humanity will be what makes this a good thing, if we show up to ensure it. I loved this conversation, talking about this topic from such an emotionally intelligent perspective and listening to Mo's innate wisdom at every turn. In this episode we talked all about: - Mo's incredible career in the tech industry as the Chief Business Officer of Google X (Google's Moonshot & Innovation Arm) - The threat of A.I & how know one knows where it is going to go - The reality of having always lived on a planet as the smartest beings, when soon we shall not be - How our own humanity is what will save us - How our Spiritual values are needed to help the machines learn the best parts of us - How machines really learn - Why we must all try to do our best so that A.I follows us - How showing up as your best self is what is the most important for A.I & the world -  The 3 values humanity agrees on & why we must use them now & so much more.... After a 30 year career in tech and serving as Chief Business Officer at Google [X], Google's 'moonshot factory' of innovation, Mo has made happiness his primary topic of research, diving deeply into literature and conversing on the topic with some of the wisest people in the world. In 2014, motivated by the tragic loss of his son, Ali, Mo began pouring his findings into his international bestselling book, Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy. His mission to help one billion people become happier, #OneBillionHappy, is his moonshot attempt to honor Ali by spreading the message that happiness can be learned and shared to one billion people. In 2020, Mo launched his chart-topping podcast, Slo Mo: A Podcast with Mo Gawdat, a weekly series of extraordinary interviews that explores the profound questions and obstacles we all face in the pursuit of purpose and happiness in our lives. ​His latest book is Scary Smart: The Future of Artificial Intelligence and How You Can Save Our World, a roadmap detailing how humanity can ensure a symbiotic coexistence with AI when it inevitably becomes a billion times smarter than we are.
