It is not Artificial Intelligence we should fear, but those who control it. Safety must be about ensuring AI leverages the best of humanity and not humanity’s greed and cruelty. Governance of technologies, data and communications by the right people, is absolutely critical to the well-being and future of humanity. Our thinking, planning and action must go beyond artificial intelligence. The greatest assets can pose the biggest threats. As beings with free will, implantable devices, particularly those developed for the human brain, pose the greatest threat to our existence. Will we continue to let developers, financiers and politicians dominate and control technology, data and communications, or will we explore a democratic digital government of wise men and women? In 2024, there will be a significant shift in governance, which will include not only how we govern, but who will govern the formidable trio of digital, communications and technologies.
