2022 Annual Compendium of AI Assistance for Humans SDGscontributor
Chris Macrae, Research Associate at ...MAX 750 WORD PITCH
2022 is the 65th year since the parting of one of the humanly and exponentially most impactful Hungarians to have graced planet earth.
John Von Neumann’s immediate legacy was JFK’s moon race and birth of twin AI (Artificial Intelligence) labs by John McCarthy, facing: Atlantic out of Boston MIT and Pacific out of Stanford U Palo Alto. McCarthy’s defining purpose of AI now APPlies to integrating humanity’s SDGs. “AI is the science and engineering of making intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs” where “intelligence is the computational part of the ability to achieve goals in the world.”
Writing in Dec 2020, there cannot be a more urgent time to openly compile a play-book of 500+ mini cases of how tech can assist humans and our next generation. Today’s AI wizards associated at www.futureoflife.org clarify 6 decades of hi-tech exponentials have reached 2020s ultimate tipping points : all life can flourish like never before, or self-destruct.
Also called for is a serious educational transformation not just by the grade but so that everyone in every community is valued as free to be a lifelong learner and mentor. Our species will end unless we can get ahead of hyper-connectivity’s exponential challenges. Examining youth to be perfectly right as constituted by old exponentials is not worth a cent if nature or tech’s connectivity is waving round new exponentials. Helping youth to be curious and collaborative in value mapping the new new world is life critical. Page 4 of the attachment shows these exponential timelines are not new to the universe- they were anticipated in The Economist inspired 2025report.com written in 1984 at a time when it was evident that Moore’s Law’s promise to deliver 100 fold more computational capacity over 6 decades was being fulfilled 1965-2025.
Proposal; TO assemble first annual compendium by surveying links to youth’s greatest cheerleaders of humanizing AI. In my living memory, there has never been a year like 2021 for openly valuing asynchronous societal leaps forward -be the contexts post-covid, all lives matter, united communities of climate to name but three. Every place’s diversity depends on updating what relevant 2020s AI and its own deepest data compose. At #AIforgood the UN is leaping into year 4 of asking tech & societal wizards: which SDG practice branches of UN can you assist?- see first page of attachment where the good news is faculty and AI learning modules are online and free. Page 2 samples a most radical open society tech university – projects which Arizona’s President Crow invites young world to partner. Page 3 indicates NIST US gov has only just begun debating the 4 principles of Explainable AI
My father (The Economist’s Norman Macrae) spent his last days as a teenager in world war 2 navigating airplanes of allied bomber command over modern-day Myanmar- the great Bay of Bengal to the west, Asean peninsular south and continental China and Japan to north east. Doubly fortunate: he survived, to be among the last people to make notes with both Keynes and Von Neumann. Their system innovations inspired the optimistic rational approach of The Economist’s end poverty subeditors. In retirement, Norman’s first focus was to write the biography of Von Neumann, his last to help new graduates in journalism explore Bangladesh -can the country with the deepest village women capital partner the most relevant AI wizards?
After father died, the Japanese ambassador to Dhaka hosted 2 roundtables with Sir Fazle Abed: what’s next in empowering rural Asian women to scale up sustainability lives matter of Asians as connectors of two thirds of the human race? That’s where I first heard of ambassadors being invited to brainstorm the new university coalition of SDGs.
Can every open society imagineer a tech-for-SDGs project to linkin to the compendium? Nature’s system maths isn’t rocket science but it demands mapping multipliers bottom up and open without borders. NO*SO*TO=EXP. Sustainability mapping depends on deep data so that human behaviors triangularize natural, societal and technological openness.
To kick start the first AIforHUMANS annual with a budget of five thousand dollars, I am excluding publication costs other than digital. I would rather leave local curriculum of cases to branch out of OSUN or Adam Smith and Franciscan scholars outreach, or anyone cheering return of team USA to sustainability and lives matter worldwide performances.
Alternatively, if OSUN wants to takeover this project completely– fine, but I ask that something is ready to celebrate before cop26 Glasgow Nov 2021.As always, any reporting errors are mine alone

The Two-Hour Special
This special program presents the stories of unsung champions who protect people worldwide from the ravages of threatening disease. Using highlights from the six-hour series, this special focuses on the individual heroes whose tireless perseverance saves millions of lives across the globe. From young polio warriors in India to armies of grandmothers in Nepal, the program takes viewers inside the stirring campaigns that have brought renewed faith to poor communities from Africa to South America.
The Complete Series
Program 1: Disease Warriors
Before there was an understanding of infectious disease, few weapons were available to fight it. Disease Warriors chronicles the groundbreaking work of early researchers, such as the famed scientist Louis Pasteur, who unmasked germs as the source of illness. Pasteur went on to develop a rabies vaccine — a great scientific triumph. Today, vaccines have made huge strides against epidemics, conquering smallpox and bringing the global eradication of polio within reach. But the world still faces major challenges in getting basic vaccines to those who still need them, and in creating new ones to combat modern nemeses, like AIDS.
Program 2: Rise of the Superbugs
It's difficult to imagine a world without medicines — and yet, before the twentieth century there weren't any. The discovery of the very first antibiotic, penicillin, and the subsequent development of more "wonder drugs" transformed the face of modern medicine. Rise of the Superbugs chronicles these historic successes, as well as the growing threat posed by new strains of germs, such as tuberculosis and staph, that are resistant to our best antibiotics. Are our strongest medicines becoming obsolete, and can we develop new drugs in time to replace them?
Program 3: Delivering the Goods
At the dawn of the 21st century, we can prevent, treat or cure most of the deadliest diseases known to humankind — and yet millions die needlessly every year because the benefits of modern medicine and public health fail to reach them. What are the obstacles to providing care to populations in need? From the villages of the Gambia to the cities and towns of Thailand, from the sun-scorched refugee camps of Chad to the teeming streets of Bangladesh — this episode chronicles innovative health programs and charismatic leaders who, against all odds, are Delivering the Goods to millions of individuals — and inspiring a new vision for the future of global health.
Program 4: Deadly Messengers
Since the plague killed millions of Europeans in the Middle Ages, vector-borne diseases — those that rely on insects and animals to spread infectious agents — have posed a serious threat to public health. Today, the most dangerous vector on earth is the mosquito. From malaria to yellow fever to West Nile virus, mosquito-borne diseases continue to threaten the health of millions around the world. Deadly Messengers recounts the stories of heroic scientists and health workers who battled against the mosquito, and examines current efforts to control dangerous and spreading vector-borne diseases.
Program 5: Back to the Basics
Ever since sailors noticed that scurvy could be prevented with citrus fruits, it has been clear that illness could be caused by a lack of certain nutrients. While nutrient-enriched products have reduced diseases caused by vitamin deficiency in the developed countries, the problem continues to plague the developing world. And many in poorer countries suffer from the twin problems of poor nutrition and unsafe water, which create a disease burden that is almost unbearable. Back to the Basics explores the connection between health and the essential requirements that so many people take for granted. It also examines how an overabundance of nutrition — in the form of over-consumption — is causing an epidemic of obesity that is spreading across the globe.
Program 6: How Safe Are We?
During the past 100 years, life expectancy more than doubled in developed countries. In the last few decades, however, thirty new infectious diseases have emerged and one of them — AIDS — is becoming perhaps the most devastating epidemic in history. New diseases travel the globe with unprecedented rapidity, and older killers that once seemed controllable are roaring back with a vengeance. How Safe Are We? examines the most critical threats we face today — including avian flu — and the pressing need to strengthen global public health systems.

The norms around science and politics are cracking
Illustration: Aïda Amer/Axios
Crafting successful public health measures depends on the ability of top scientists to gather data and report their findings unrestricted to policymakers.
State of play: But concern has spiked among health experts and physicians over what they see as an assault on key science protections, particularly during a raging pandemic. And a move last week by President Trump, via an executive order, is triggering even more worries.
What's happening: If implemented, the order creates a "Schedule F" class of federal employees who are policymakers from certain agencies who would no longer have protection against being easily fired — and would likely include some veteran civil service scientists who offer key guidance to Congress and the White House.
- Those agencies might handle the order differently, and it is unclear how many positions could fall under Schedule F — but some say possibly thousands.
- "This much-needed reform will increase accountability in essential policymaking positions within the government," OMB director Russ Vought tells Axios in a statement.
What they're saying: Several medical associations, including the Infectious Diseases Society of America, strongly condemned the action, and Democrats on the House oversight panel demanded the administration "immediately cease" implementation.
- "If you take how it's written at face value, it has the potential to turn every government employee into a political appointee, who can be hired and fired at the whim of a political appointee or even the president," says University of Colorado Boulder's Roger Pielke Jr.
- Protections for members of civil service allow them to argue for evidence-based decision-making and enable them to provide the best advice, says CRDF Global's Julie Fischer, adding that "federal decision-makers really need access to that expertise — quickly and ideally in house."
Between the lines: Politics plays some role in science, via funding, policymaking and national security issues.
- The public health system is a mix of agency leaders who are political appointees, like HHS Secretary Alex Azar, and career civil servants not dependent on the president's approval, like NIAID director Anthony Fauci.
- "Public health is inherently political because it has to do with controlling the way human beings move around," says University of Pennsylvania's Jonathan Moreno.
Yes, but: The norm is to have a robust discussion — and what has been happening under the Trump administration is not the norm, some say.
- "Schedule F is just remarkable," Pielke says. "It's not like political appointees editing a report, [who are] working within the system to kind of subvert the system. This is an effort to completely redefine the system."
- The Center for Strategic and International Studies' Stephen Morrison says that the administration has been defying normative practices, including statements denigrating scientists, the CDC and FDA.
The big picture: Public trust in scientists, which tends to be high, is taking a hit, not only due to messaging from the administration but also from public confusion over changes in guidance, which vacillated over masks and other suggestions.
- Public health institutions "need to have the trust of the American people. In order to have the trust of the American people, they can't have their autonomy and their credibility compromised, and they have to have a voice," Morrison says.
- "If you deny CDC the ability to have briefings for the public, and you take away control over authoring their guidance, and you attack them and discredit them so public perceptions of them are negative, you are taking them out of the game and leaving the stage completely open for falsehoods," he adds.
- "All scientists don't agree on all the evidence, every time. But what we do agree on is that there's a process. We look at what we know, we decide what we can clearly recommend based on what we know, sometimes when we learn more, we change our recommendations, and that's the scientific process," Fischer says.
What's next: The scientific community is going to need to be proactive on rebuilding public trust in how the scientific process works and being clear when guidance changes and why it has changed, Fischer says.
