1979 & Proyouth GAMES to Linkin from 1951: Ed's & A!20s most curious moments as V. Neumann's & The Economist's diarists include 1982...LLM2022STORY why we co-brand with AIgoodmedia.com.When The Economist sent dad Norman Macrae to pre-train with Von Neumann 1951 Princeton, they agreed The Economist should start up leadership Entrepreneurial Revolution surveys; what goods will humans unite wherever they first linkedin to 100 times more tech per decade? Johnny added a final twist in notes for his biography. "Unfortunately Economics is Not Mathematical. One day only AI maths can save our species

Game AI : Architect Intelligence:: EconomistDiary invites you to co-create this game & apply bard.solar ; personalise your pack of 52 players cards. Whose intelligence over last 75 years most connects human advancement at every gps concerning you and yours on planet?
we offer 3 types of tours sampling rockstars on intelligence for good and welcome guest tours :Alpha Chronological began 1951 through 4 decades at The Economist; Gamma: back from future of 2020s began 1984; Beta intergeneration connectors are more recent quests; try  AI game out; we'd love to hear whose action networks inspires You and who chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk
Alpha1 JFKennedy Neumann-Einstein-Turing Crowther; Youth visions for 1960s launched by Kennedy as great as any known to us- eg space race; peace corps, Atlantic-Pacific win-win trade; Kennedy had studied quite traditional economic gurus at Harvard (eg ); served in US Navy Pacific theatre word war 2; he discovered The Economist stories of exciting economic possibilities; these had emerged from editor Geoffrey Crowther ; his 20+ years of editing included 1943 centenary autobiography of Economist- had been a mistake to vision a newspaper helping 20 something Queen Victoria in 1843 transform to commonwealth trading from slavemaking empire; Crowther thought good news media was worth another go; he sent a rookie journalised who had survived being teen navigator allied bomber command Burma to pretrain with Neumann at Princeton year of 1951 as well as interview NY-UN year 6; Neumann explained after spending their lives mainly on the science allies needed to beat Hitler: Neumann-Einstein-Turing wanted a good legacy - digitalisation -see eg Neumann's last lecture notes delivered Yale "Computer and the Brain". There were 4 inter-generational crises the NET foresaw; sorting out energy; designing win-win economics; sorting out worldwide cooperations; everything else UN and multilaterals were being asked to resolve. Neumann trained Economist journalist in the leadership survey : "What goods will humans unite wherever they have early access to 100 times more tech per decade?"
(breakingJy10) Gamma1 Hassabis , Fei-Fei Li,, Guterres, Oren Etzioni, JYKim, Ng, Yang, Chang, Chang- There are lots of alternative Gammas but we start with 2 engineers who transformed AI from 2010 when they furst met at Stanford and discussed FFL's NSF funding of imagenet since 2006; 2 public health servants who in 2016 weren't happy with just talking 17 new UN goals and have been asking AI genii to help digital roadmap UN2 since 2016 and a Taiwanese American in Silicon Valley, a Chinese American In Taiwan and Samsung's Korean who partnered Taiwan's chip making genii; these stories have lots of personal courage as well as brilliance; any reporting errors are mine alone chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk My family has made 100 trips to Asia from the west but still have no fluency in oriental languages so I am biassed : i believe NOW! that LLMs can connect the best cooperation intelligences ever and urgently map life critical knowhow through every global villahge
Beta 1 celebrates massive web and inter-generational  gifts of Steve Jobs Fazle Abed Mr Sudo JYKim and Mr Grant; you will probably know Jobs started 2 digital networking revolutions with 1984s Mackintosh Personal Computer and apple and 2007's iphone; at bottom of pyramid, you may not know Asia-66-percent-of%20Intelligence-for-good-part-1.docx   fazle abed linked up to 1 billion tropical Asian real housewives & entrepreneurs towards  empowering the end of poverty; and Steve hosted silicon valleys 65th birthday party for abed in 2001; they brainstormed transformative education which the pc hadn't delivered ..but could the mobile era be visioned to do so?; Mr Sudo had partnered Abed and Bangladesh villagers in "leapfrog" mobile experiments starting 1995. By 2001, as Jobs was introducing Abed to eg Stanford friends, Kim had discovered Abed's women were networking the most effective solution to rural Tuberculosis; he introduced Gates and Soros to Abed as all 4 wanted 2000s Global Fund to end TB & HIV & Malaria; at the same time Guterres had moved from Portuguese prime minister to red cross and then UN servant leader of refugees; meanwhile back in 1980 it was UNICEF's James Grant who had discovered Fazle Abed women's oral rehydration network which was saving lives of 1 in 3 infants who previously died of diarrhea in the tropics' humid villages ; Grant became worldwide marketer of how parents could mix water sugar and salts as the life saving cure of ORD; naturally James Grant College of Global Public Health has become cornerstone of all the new university cooperations Abed and Jobs started brainstorming in 2001
here we discuss why 73 years as biographers of V Neumann's future visions suggests its critical to map intelligences who got us to 2020s and today's giant co-leapers Gamma-tours; this also opens door to which intelligences at national or other place levels contribute what? - see our 60+ years of intelligences, and eg discussion of why to end extreme poverty we need one open global university of poverty
Beta2 : NB how different scope of 2020s AI is from cross-selection of web2,1 engineers of last quarter century- NB valuetrue purpose of gamifying Architect Intel : borderless engineering can help humans vision 2020's co-creation of web3 and millennials development beyond extinction. Kai Fu Lee, Ng, Melinda Gates, Koike, Lela Ibrahim, Jobs, Satoshi ,Houlin Zhao, Allen, Musk, Brin ,Page , Bezos, Ma, Zhengfei, Torvaulds, Berners Lee, Masa Son, It would be a pity if short-term nationalism stopped us 8 billion humans learning from these tireless innovative beings. Do sub in your regional counterpart. Also note what no conventional strategist saw as Intelligence possible before 2017. To clarify: start with kai fu lee- his best seller on AI in 2017 doesn't explain the ai thats changing every possibiliity of the 2020s but does it good job of AI up to 2017. He also has unique view because he was sent by google to explore china, falling ill at same time as google exiting china, writing up ai that inspired reinventing himself as both venture capitalist in the midst of asia's most extraordinary student suburb (Zhong...) and as curious observer. I see Ng, Ms Gates. Koike, Ibrahim -as civil education heroines/heroes - who are yours ? Satoshi, Zhao, Allen, Musk - gamechangers taking on conflicts that journey us all through tipping points. One day the world may decide it was a blessing that a corporate like google and a revolutionary uni like Stanford co-habited the same 100 square miles- is there any other comparable 100 square miles of brainworkers for humanity. (I love Hong Kong but thats its own story). The other 5 kept digital movements alive -they merit being valued as engineering heroes before you decide how to translate systemic components to your regions' -and mother earth's - urgent needs.

education of pregant women

each stage in development of new born infant

eg first few weeks breast feeding

if get stunted at ay stage cant respond to acute dusease which then begins killer

more dots that continuity whole "education" of child from 0 up and parets or whomever relay through to education/community

childhood wassting -pandemic beyond facade country cn sende to space and produce vaccine but cant end child wasting

wee need health resilient systems community level - impact nutrition , health, women, education - accelerate investment in sdgs now covid has exposed ths lack of fundamentals

last mile health - last 200 yars health frst 12 weeks of infant

anamei sokutions only take weeks to intervene but not done wholly on ground
