MIT and Singapore are launching a new program: “Mens, Manus and Machina: How AI empowers people and the city in Singapore (M3S).” Humans have spent eons learning how to work effectively with each other as a species, but at the scale of human history, we are still neophytes to computation and automation. I am leading a team of 17 MIT and Singapore professors to examine two questions at M3S:
- How will we design AI and robotics technologies and train humans to build the skills and habits necessary for success in an AI and robotics-heavy work environment?
- How will we adapt our social and business institutions to create the incentives and protections necessary to drive innovation and social welfare?
M3S, operated in the MIT SMART Program, is a multi-year multi-million-dollar program supported by National Research Foundation Singapore (NRF) under its CREATE program.
