Fro mid 1950s studies in Glasgow he spent nearly 13 years growing to be Royal Dutch Shell Oil Company's regional CEO. So his lifetime searches uniquely capitalised on what UK and Dutch Royal Societies (soon Japan Royals too) knew how to help end the poverty their colonial era had up to 1945 trapped the majority of humans world trade in. Simply put most Asian coastal belts link national borders defined by what these < a href="http://www.kc3.dev">3 kingdoms designed in to trading barriers over nearly half millennium. And which had made the English language that of world class engineering (digital age as well as pre-digital) So by 1970s these nations royal societies (including londons arts green-geographical, medicinie, science, architects ...) were happy that a grounded movement could link them into what they didnt fully know culturally or consciously. From 1970 on Abed linked in global village mapping like no one else - through these relationships and by designing business microfrachises not charity wherever possible for village women to own. To study with abed alumni is to join in the world's most cooperative empowering women movements for good as well as of childrens development.

AI Submission By Diarists of John Von Neumann and The Economist since 1951
contact chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk Washington DC region +1 240 316 8157

When my father Norman met Von Neumann in 1951, during a year in NewYork-Princeton, a list of 4 intergenerational challenges were envisioned as most deeply determining humanity's future.

 It is true that both men had been lucky to survive world war 2 (dad served as a teenage navigator allied bomber command Burma) and this may have shaped their priorities. One of these had clearly been assigned to the UN and the innovation of multilateral system design. 

Three drivers that Von Neumann suggested needed to be constantly and transparently questioned as the legacy of his peer mathematicians were:
Above Zero Sum Trade Models -eg life critical knowhow can multiply value in application unlike consuming up things
Energy "which will make scientists both the most hated and wanted of experts"
By the 21st C even more exponential opportunity and threats will be mapped around intelligence connecting hardware, software and brain science.

(These priority goals can be verified with John's surviving daughter Marina if required)

Von Neumann suggested that Economist journalists blend that discipline with AI curiosity by adopting the leadership interview question: what good can peoples unite wherever they are first to access more than 100 times more tech per decade? The Economist editor Geoffrey Crowther agreed and so AI curiosity was integral to The Economist's evolution as early viewspaper of globalisation and changing livelihoods of future entrepreneurship www.normanmacrae.net

Given this 73 year viewpoint, we can hypothesise that AI  can now either help solve or destroy the capacity of mother earth to host our species at the 8-10 billion beings level

Double Loop Vision -pictured at timeless co-blog economistsocial.com

 

To clarify ways forward for GenAI, we suggest tracking how (Generative) AI spends peoples times in 3 main ways; and how it spend their money in 3 ways.

I have spent most of my professional life on the time spent loop which we construct around education, media and what data science mathematicians are assigned to maximise societal harmony -at a foundation level these are the markets that most determine SDGs 1-5. I have monitored this arena because in 1984 I supplied the likely digital innovation timelines to the book 2025 Report co-authored with father- reviewed here by The Economist's former science editor Viscount Matt Ridley Death of a great optimist - Matt Ridley


Unfortunately, as the West transformed from mass tv world through digital webs 1 and 2 - education was not priortised over very short term commercial media. We could say that Berners Less assumed web1 was educational but by late 1990s all the top webs searchable were commercial. Then entering web2 era a handful of commercial giants sucked up all data eg MAFAG Microsoft Apple Facebook Amazon Google as well as players in their spaces which they mainly took over. This is the opposite to the entrepreneurial revolution survey Economist Xmas 1976 dad published in his 25th year of applying Neumann's questions tp Economist reports.

WHERE DOES THIS PUT US TODAY?
FIRST PLEASE CELEBRATE EXCITING NON MEDIA VERSIONS OF GENERATIVE AI. eg Deep learning Alphafold has probably advanced biotech by a million human years of time by open sourcing the proteins database. 

Secondly. there are dozens of experiments going on at Stanford HAI. Adam Smith scholars might even say that those who change AI generatively around the moral sentiments exemplar of Fei-Fei Li have kept a different web2 open to that of the MAFAG. In any event, if the world is to unite in leaping forward from covid how media and tech are meta-designed in next few years leaves everything to play for.

My suggestion would be to make sure generative aiforgood catalogues are celebrated as almost a different exercise than the debate over what to do with eg chatgpt and bard. The world's biggest digital orgs have now being using chats on their own private data for a decade so bots are undeniably powerful. I would train 5th grade teachers immediately in uses teens up will need to make good. Fir example if a group like khan academy adds a plug in so that  students have their owns skills dashboard and digital personal assistant that will have returned education to supporting millennial livelihoods as described in our 1984 book. see also www.ed3dao.com

My provisional understanding is any plug-in to a tool like CGPT changes what you get. Currently CGPT cuts off at Fall 2021 making plug-in choice essential for anyine who is future-oriented. I am not technically qualified to know whether some plugins can be designed to stop particular misuses

At the end of the day,. maths is being applied both to for better and for worse worlds. Over-regulation would likely slow down the for good while the illegal will continue to multiply harm
Of course, as soon as you get to more specific contexts . recursive analysis of the role of public service and regulation should be energised as http://www.ai.gov appears to have started doing.

Overall I see controversy over chatgpt as a bit of a red herring. Its not the proven reason for good AI such as aforementioned leap into proteins. And rather than reinvent the wheel, the guard rails which Stanford Hai seems to be building look smart to me.

more details::

this would have been centenary year of my father   http://www.normanmacrae.net   who met von neumann 73 years ago and became The Economist's  neumann ai for good interviewer - i have tried in small ways mainly in Asia to understand and contribute to his work for last 48 years. This goes back to Xmas 1976 survey Entrepreneurial Revolution The Economist Xmas day 1976 year 25 of Neumann survey what goods can unite peoples with 100 times more tech per decade - s


sadly along with political macroeconomics all adjectival entrepreneur movements since then have diluted trust in  the main system transformation conflict mapping with coming globalisation, media and digitalisation my father was most concerned with



Guterres has arranged a new points person Guy Ryder previously geneva ILO for brainstorming out of this world views like this - I expect its John and Richard who have contacts in boston and amongst mathematicans and women empowerment designers who could come up with a few concepts to that what if - how does identity for good come into that . WE also have quite a lot of connections through hong kong and some in singapore if relevant. These places have different way of gamifying and designing the metaverse which might be connected to crypto for good

While there are a handful of NY people like Guy Ryder who are identifiable in guterres top team - I myself dont have the ability to get a meeting with them. However it could be timely because if Banga previously Indian leader of Mastercard is appointed to the world bank having something team guterres can discuss with Banga would be valuable

chatgpt4-   Yes, the total value of all financial transactions around the world in a year is much larger than the value of transactions that occur on stock exchanges. Financial transactions include not only equity trades but also other types of transactions such as bond trading, currency trading, and derivatives trading, among others. According to a report by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), the total value of financial transactions worldwide in 2020 was estimated to be approximately $2,914 trillion USD, which is more than 28 times the value of transactions that occurred on global stock exchanges in the same year. It's worth noting that this figure includes both exchange-traded and over-the-counter (OTC) transactions.



2022 is my 50th year of earning MA Statistics at the UK's leading maths lad DAMTP. As a maths guy, I try to help people see systems-good stuff in numbers that they haven't yet seen. In the context of orgabsaitions or partnership networks- trust and unique purpose are ultimately what make an organsiation better (round purspoe and pride of its emplotyyes and theor learning passions- we clarified this in a triple special issue of juournal of marketing magement I edited in 1999 after more than a decade helping 2 professors from mit and havrad colect a databank of what societies most wanted from compaines new product processes and beter for humasns - getting bigger is not relevant (except that if you are the graviating more good around your purpose than any otehr system you dont want to get taken over by someon bigger)

There are now 9 building pieces that I might help people checkers their numbers purspoe around. Some of tehsde come from my father's work- in 1951 dad met vn neumman amd asked hum tp help make the biggest scoop in ecvonomic jouranlism - what goods can leople iunite around next leap in 100 tike more technology (whicvh is likely to happen every decade through my life time)

So while I havent always used this terminolgy in line with open sustainability UN alumni I like looking at nubers wchic help map several of the following

global connectivity and human rights

========================

With an MA in Statistics Cambridge DAMTP, This is my 50th year working on media and mediating humanity's deepest goals - a concern of 4 generations of Diaspora Scots on both sides of my family tree. I live in Bethesda. I am on the editorial board of 2 Adam Smithian Journals out of Glasgow University - New Economics, Social Business.


Is there someone in your team who might be interested in discussing any of the following as well as sharing any collaboration projects you value?

I am looking for a co-author (2) to update final edition of 2025report- first editions were co-authored from 1984 with my father, Norman Macrae, The Economist's sub-editor of worldwide sustainability.
As a sole author I published Brand Chartering with The Economist Intelligence Unit- a new genre in search of design, learning organisation , auditing and futurising valuation of Exponentially Purposeful Leadership and partnerships (particularly those in educational transformation as digital media defined new millennium opportunities and threats)

Dad had met Von Neumann in Princeton 1951 and was encouraged to use the journalistic scoop- ask responsible local and global leaders what will they do with 100 times more tech per decade or million times more per inter-generation 30 years;  my father called this genre future history and entrepreneurial revolution, terms he coined in The Economist from 1968 and later partnered with such innovators as James Naisbitt and J Gifford Pinchot as well as more generally with Peter Drucker and Ezra Vogel.
There are 2 biographies of von Neumann one new- one written by dad; 
with Marina von Neumann my friends and family aim to survey AI Hall of fame - if Johnny was alive today who would he hope educators were linking in youth as first sustainability generation

Since 1982 when I consulted for Unilever Asia Pacific region (staring in Indonesia) for 14 years I have been to Asia over 50 times on projects including being the main coordinator of an MIT database on Societies' market needs.(What now is the S of ESG) . Today I am most energised in benchmarking new media projects out of Asia (65% of human beings) - topmost currently Home - beingAI   whose goals for humanising the metaverse are my number 1 search and inspiration  ( http://www.beeings.app  )


Following dads poverty alleviation interests as Keynesian I am also particularly interested in billion Asian women empowerment having visited Bangladesh 16 times interviews mobilising women4empowerment - www.unwomens.com

 My father thought Neumann was probably the most under-biographed person relevant to the future so of course its great you've added to the field


There are some particular messages that I see as urgent - perhaps we could see if there are some we agree on

when i was at DAMTP in 1972 I used to hope that after von neumann's experience the most dangerous thing that could happen to a mathematician was getting run over by steve hawkins wheel chair -in those days the corridors of mill street were narrow and 15 mph wheelchairs were a menace

unfortunately it would appear that maths failure to map exponential systems is likely to make our grandchildren extinct

there was for example nothing that I could see  about understanding what adam smith neumann or indeed james wilson were actually about(at a distance) from cop26  or the way the g8 have failed to confront covid ahead of time ever month since dec 2019

covid is a much better metaphor than an amazon butterfly flying its wings for the double exponential crisis of being ever more communally hyperconnected but ever more ruled by top-down   legislators who have not modelled einstein's warning that man's science (and media) is a s fake as its macro levels of measurement 

although almost every discipline needs a translated one pager who what 1950s maths actually mapped, here are the foci that I argue with people every day on - and while i try and argue with optimism , urgency is now needed

1 ESG's - I do have an ESG-focused friend who is probably japans elder of finance in new york - he would be where I'd start with neumann and ESGs because dads bio only got translated into japanese a few months ago-or perhaps at MIT one could interest someone like joi ito; I assume the person at stanford is jerry hang as he was also the connector of sustainable ecommerce from 1995 with japans  maso son (one o9f the huge optimistic mistakes dad and I made in our 1984 2025 report is we timelined emergence of worldwide web but had expected the learning version of that to be identifiably separate from ad and fake media versions- of course we got that wrong for the west - which together with 65% of people being asian is why new world order is our last chance politically imo)  



2 neumann and sdgs - are you still in touch with eg malloch brown - now leading  open society foundation but i believe the editor of the millennium goals back in 2000 - from 2015 the sdgs have at least one fatal systems error in them from my bottom-up viewpoint

3 humanising AI whatever that means - (by AI I mean the convergence of all technologies but increasingly where data streams in from every gps -real -time op systems that can only be governed by artificials - but which will be fatal if their data isnt micro enough)

4 in what i see as the real (bottom-up and open system natural) world of ending poverty (human development) the joint mission of wilson and queen victoria - the japan ambassador to bangladesh invited me on fathers death to interview sir fazle abed every year until his death- over 50 years bangladesh and chinese village women were the core bottom billion to end poverty - while the wya they financed this was different- the village solutions that needed replication rice not to starve. oral rehydration, vaccination, much smaller family sizes so women could run businesses were open sourced; some of the collaborations abed wanted to be his legacy have gone missing since his death in dec 2019 and with covid starting at the sasme time

i would like to discuss those filed at www.abedmooc.com - or just one of them; namely abed wanted 100 asian universities to share their female sdg graduates instead of keeping them in separate alumni groups- if you like a schwarzman girls adgs scholars;; getting that to happen hasnt been easy even though the vice chancellor headhunted for vbrac university saw the vice chancellor  of princeton the week before xmas

does it help to be introduced to brac university vice chancellor

unfortunately I am in washington dc and not likely to be in london in forseeable future; i actually am most hopeful of regaining wilsonian common sense in new york of all american spaces;  is there a way to map where people meet in new york to advance the missing system ideas that I assume we are talking about - sustainability and esg goals multiply  expoenentials - for 30 yeras now I have argued with the global accountants that they dont audit that

have you been in touch with von neumann's family? do you think bloomberg and micklethwait understand the systems urgency?

cheers chris mob/whatsapp + 1 240 316 8157

oh yes - do you engage with anyone using industrial rev 4 or society 5.0 language - in my view we needed to define IR3 as all above zero sum economic models- so for example life critical learning networks multiply value in application unlike consuming up things; by not connecting neumanns 100 times more tech per decade with above zero sum compasses (health , nature being other compasses) we have made last chances very hard

 Dear Scott - would it be practical to chat to member of your team about 2 updates? On my side I visited bangladesh 15 times after my father's Death (dad norman had been the economist's end poverty sub-editor). Japan's ambassador kindly introduced me to sir fazle abed and after 15 trips with young journalists we have tried to file www.abedmooc.com - reviewing 30 collaboration platforms sir fazle hoped his partnership legacy would continue. Also yesterday I was speaking to mutual contact shaina magrone- she reminded me of the urgent need to try to kickstart social business among young black americans. I accompanied dr yunus to 6 stateswide sb competition challenges mainly in HBUC states; and now I know Shaina and have long been inspired by rev al hathaway (the deep thurgood marshall community in baltimore) I think its time to have another go at that. I am in n bethesda +1 240 316 8157 - best chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

I believe the purpose of education has become our last chance of returning millennials to being the sustainability generation

Since 9/11, I have spent about half my working time searching for system r4esolving solutions. For example, being mainly London-based to 2005, I helped Paul Komesaroff host the first Global Reconciliation Network event in 2003 with Mary Robinson as Keynote speaker. I then attended GRN Delhi in 2004. In 2004, I also helped host some Brazilian delegates to the European Social Forum 2004 particularly those concerned with water as a human right which Bula was supporting.

Also, for 3 years I was volunteer special interest group editor of European Knowlegdbeoad.com. My designated interest was emotional intelligence; of the 9 other special interest groups, our dialogues were closely associated with the NGO interest group. It was during this time that we started to form a club of collaboration cities aimed at celebrating each others cultures: leading participants were Rome, Barcelona, Amsterdam. We also started to parametrize why water poses so many different challenges to sustainability in different parts of the world – this could be a suitable way of building collaboration mapping networks that a virtual community space and its connections with the European Union’s elearning goal. It was during this work that I heard more and more Europeans talking about microcreditsummit and millennium goals.

In 2005, London Year of Make Poverty History, I was on the board of the Simultaneous Policy (simpol.org) delegated to attend monthly events connecting leaders of UK foundations. Unfortunately, much of the momentum of this year collapsed with the 7/7 terror attack, and personally I lost one of my 5 main mentors.

My wife had needed to move to the University of Maryland for her career, so from 2006 I became more and more interested in Bangladesh and Asian women empowerment; initially by making contact with Sam Daley-Harris in Washington DC. My family first helped Dr Yunus connect his social business book launch between London and East Coast US Cities. But after my second trip to Bangladesh, I realized I wanted to write up notes on what was then the 40 years of Sir Fazle Abed’s work on poverty alleviation. I was surprised at the first 3-hour brainstorming session with Sir Fazle Abed- the topic why not microeducationsummit instead of microfinance summit. Brac was by now nearing recruitment of its 100000th employee culturally connected around Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed.

Abed went on to explain how platform building of partnerships involved two very different quarter of a century. From 1970 to 1995, all village connections were person to person or print. From 1996, Brac internet, and soon the opportunity to develop universities, as platforms changed the future partnerships, he could linkin. But always his focus was ending Colonial Era heritage of linearly examined education. Brac had from the outset started with adults’ jobs training. By the time Abed started Brac University in 2001, there was one last schools’ development process to design: playschools. Typically, of Abed he saw this as an opportunity to start designing a format that dozens of countries could join in – BRAC University pioneered the first MA in playschools in Asia if not the world.

It is, of course, peculiar to those who value education that it was as late as 2011 that the world’s first global education laureates were launched due to the extraordinary vision of First Lady of Qatar Sheikha Moza. She was already developing women’s education city campus, and seized the opportunity to leverage the location of the country’s conference center to celebrate both WISE education laureates and WISH health laureates. Her and Sir Fazle’s movements fitted perfectly – at least until the blockade of Qatar when Qatar Foundation lost its role as official UN hub for all refugee education networks.

There is much urgent work to be done if education is to be valued as much by future place leaders as economics. There is no network as well suited as TeachForAll to continue the legacy Sir Fazle’s half century and empowerment of billion Asian women has grounded.

 Awesome! I'll look into it. Interesting article connecting goleman and UN: https://www.un.org/en/academic-impact/unlocking-your-emotions-achieve-sdgs-emotional-intelligence


[2:07 PM, 1/18/2022] ChridMacra: yes i like EI today; i remember that when the european union first said i could mediate EI I was alarmed first because I hadnt studied him - second my first readings - he seemed so general particularly to 20 years work i had done on whether leaders are trusted- i now realise that if you asked for a tour of human intel i would probably say start with goleman and i would welcome the fact that he appears to discuss human actions more than provide metrics; by the way there is a different part of goleman but I am not sure I know its exact reference- he talks of organisational diseases - starting with what he calls CEO disease by which he means fear of communicating truth up the hierarchy; there is something I call the hunt for missing curriculum by which I actually mean is fatal if teachers at each grade dont know the next grades up; i would happily call goleman ei a missing curriculum -its funny just got a book from amazon - its the order (17 factors) americas largest pension fund director uses to grade national rankings - I will send it in half an hour - it makes quite a contract to put in one's brain at the same time as some EI - I am not sure  if Leif Edvinnson is still chatting- it might be that asking him his view of goleman would start him up... i dont recolect but i think leif studies how using computers changes the brain - probably both views inform whether we are letting ai experts do what humans most need; I have to trust jeanne lim on this within the rather limited knowledge I have when it comes to how AI is now done

what would humanity miss if XXX did not exist? I published this new economics/valuation genre "Chartering"  with The Economist Intel Unit while working at the globalisation consultancy of one of the big 5 accountants 1995. Of all the leaders purposes journalists and researchers have chartered in last quarter of century, I value that of Fazle Abed most. 

As discussed here, Fazle's purpose devoted 5 decades 1970s through 010s -  helping a billion poorest women map up to 30 collaboration networks resolving life critical challenges .

 If lives are falling apart in your community I can try and help you search which 4 of 30 abed networks you need. At its simplest communities need hi-trust actionable advice/societal action networking on health, education, finance, engineering. They need this advice to have intergenerational consistency for at least 25 years. That's HERSTORY now evidenced by a billion village women!.

FUTURE Now: if my friends maths models since 1984 are correct -we somehow need to apply tech to deep community data everywhere that children are born and co-create first sustainability generation by 2030.

chris macrae short bio- the future of university became an amateur passion after my first job at uk national dev project computer assisted learning university of leeds; i never earned more than a masters in statistics from cambridge's' DAMTP 1973; from 1976 i helped the worlds biggest western companies collect data needed for innovation but from 1990 i became more interested in unique purpose of leaders- co-research with my father (The Economist's Norman Macrae) on 2 books including biography of john von neumann has made our main scientific hypothesis since 1984 that the human race's extinction battle with nature must be collaboratively resolved in 2020s - the most exciting time to be alive and celebrate fellow human beings

i value transparency of family trees a lot - no need to read remainder of this post unless you love swapping family trees - i am at linkedin UNWOMENS -we offer economist co-blogs on 30 purposes from UN to Green to Health to Black to AI to future to Japan to ,,,

 welcome to my (friends & family) networks on yuth-centric learning on human nature worldwide- as diaspora scots i can trace some of my family's biggest concerns back to 1843- at that time my many times great grandfather was the isle of arran's missionary-  an island  which is today 40 minutes ferry ride from mainland scotland, and another 40 mins train ride from glasgow - see economistdiary.com ecop26.com xglasgow.com sdgscotland.com

the island probably consisted of 1000 servants 1 priest 1 lord's family; 20000 sheep- like the rest of scotland capitalists from london were ordering scottish lords- you make more money quarterly by raising sheep- thin the scottish people- my family's solution on sundays debate in one large village circle which family wanted to emigrate next and send a message to the lord that he could thin another 5 people if he paid their shipping usually to usa - this happened all over scotland until 80% of scots live worldwide

down in london, my hero london-scot james wilson thought empire thinning of people was just one of many human wrongs of white empire alongside slavetrading, genocide, colonising, and controling agricultural markets price so that neighbors such as the irish starved; he started a newspaper, the economist in 1843 as a weekly gossip letter he circulated in londons royal societies

at that time quuen victoria with albert was still young in heart and strong in mind- she liked the idea of reigning over commonwealth instead of slavemaking

so she gave james a bank licence- charter bank- to go develop financial services by and for the peoples of india out of the then capital calcutta - there in 1860 james died of diarrhea within 9 months of landing -it was to take 83 and 120 years before my family's intelligence directly converged with james wilson legacy

lets skip trough my family tree to my father norman macrae after just mentioning that my mothers farher was a 4th generation scot in bombay who had mainly been pharmacists (landmark: kemps corner) but sir ken qualified as a barrister about 20 years after gandhi but found humself as britains chief justice mediating gandhi for 25 years before ken's last job writing up all india's independence- he had been told to assume all india was one nation not the partition into unequal thirds it became; at around the same time gradad was typing up independence dad norman macrae was spending his last days a a teen navigating planes in bomber command stationed in burma; from burma you can look west across bay of bengal to india including kamala harris maternal homeland chennai and central asia, or fly south to singapore and asean , or look to your north to china and where the then enemy japan were ruling the skies

thanks to americans dad and so i existed- after being in keynes last class dad got a job at the economist where he was well positioned to take up james wilsons baton; within 15 years dad concluded japan had transformed in the most joyful way- it was developing around 2 new economic models one rural, one supercity which all asia could win-win trade with - thats over 60% of humans most of whom had never seen electricity let alone win-win trading maps for centuries due to colonisation mainly by london- in 1962 president kennedy within a week of dads publication consider japan was cheering on this new future sustaining everyone -kennedy started declaring american interdence as the future of von neumann's legacy-  but within a year both kennedy and medgar evers were assassinated- and quite frankly i cant really understand america's asian policy ever since- fine that not my business- but it most certainly was the business of anyone supporting billion womens empowerment around fazle abed;

... in the 1950s the teenage fazle abed travelled to glasgow to study naval engineering; this was about 65 years after gandhi had gone from indua's north west coast to london to study to be a barrister; fazle abed travelled from what had been india's far north east (recolonised as east pakistan his homeland was to regain independence as bangladesh 1971) : abed graduated from glasgow, went to london , mastered charter accountancy and by the early 1960s he had landed a job at royal dutch shell oil corporation; and by 1970 was his home regions ceo for shell; there a million people died all around him in a cyclone; this changed his life: for half a century he became a collaborative networker of villagers ending poverty -he redesigned disaster relief to be bottom up and aid around microfranchising women village entrepreneurs; - he was thus bringing what james wilson had left off 110 years earlier but in abeds case his bank blocked from serving calcutta reached out to provide the rural keynesianism investmemts and the village microfranchise solutions that up to a billion village mothers used bth to build bangladesh and rural china; how that was done can be learnt or co-created at www.abedmooc.com through 2020s if we want all our children to be the sustainability generation
