The ubiquity of technology in the 21st century poses a dilemma for the future of all of mankind, one that can and must be addressed now. In the Information Age, we can’t escape the presence of technology, with Artificial Intelligence (AI) beginning to make its mark in the world. Common myths depicting AI in fictional form simply attests trek of technology throughout history , though it doesn’t quite capture the computational power of AI, as well as the risks involved. At the end of the day, the dilemma of AI out-competing humans in the industrial workforce can and must be addressed, with members of the status quo guiding technological evolution towards a future of complementing co-existence. David Lee is a junior at Valencia High School who has yet to shy away from the challenges posed by the IB and ValTech programs. When not socializing with his closest friends, playing street basketball, or out in the archery range nailing bull’s eyes, you’ll likely find this learning-enthusiast sitting in front of a computer screen staring at hundreds of lines of code. While immersed in the world of technology, David also often finds himself lost in artistic thought, with his musical passions willing him to play the cello for local orchestras and his eyes for graphic design yielding his position as an editor-in-chief of Valencia’s publication group called El Tigre. As he continues to embark on the next stages of his education with excitement, he hopes to explore the technological industry, possibly even developing and researching technological improvements that would transform the lives of every individual in his community and in his world. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
