FVS Weekly Nr. 50

Dear Flexible System Designers, 

I was asked by the German design magazine PAGE to write an article about A.I. Being critical of A.I. in the midst of an A.I. hype can be scary, but to my surprise, the response was very positive. Maybe because my intention was not to bash A.I., but to draw awareness to the dynamics that can turn good intentions into bad consequences. I was given four pages but ended up writing ten. I am still in the middle of translating it into English, but you can read already the first of ten parts. 

I called the article: Why AI is not just another tool — 10 points techno-optimists and techno-pessimists should not ignore.

The first part is called: Increased efficiency leads to increased energy and material consumption

Have a great week!
