What beneficial exactly entails is still an open question that largely exist in the domain of ethics; AI and enabling technologies like robotics and autonomous vehicles will change lives and livelihoods. Great benefits and unprecedented wealth will be created. But with that will come waves of disruption- How do we share income and protect displaced workers? How do we share benefits of better health?How do we share access to powerful tools?How and when do we augment our intelligence? Etc.
