Howdy, Modi

USA and India, two major democracies of the world, complement well.

India is a land of spirituality – eternal, energetic, and the pursuit of bliss

&

USA is a land of freedom – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness

No better time than the leadership today to further it.

Howdy, Modi. wishing the event @ Houston, TX all the best.

waves of transformation in the world

Notwithstanding debates about future of automobile industry (uber/ola vs own-car), world economy will certainly be dictated by following:

– Generational/Aspirational Shift
– Business Model Shift
– Technology Shift
– Consumer Awareness Shift

Policy makers of all the major countries should be willing to address them in order to recalibrate for the new world.

Search party

Many times we don’t know ourselves.

We assume our identity to be the new clothes (new body for our soul) that we put on and forget our true self.

Then we keep searching everywhere to get self realisation.

We need to take a step back, reflect and look inside and we will be able to realise the self.

keyūrāṇi na bhūṣayanti puruṣaṁ

केयूराणि न भूषयन्ति पुरुषं हारा न चन्द्रोज्ज्वलाः
न स्नानं न विलेपनं न कुसुमं नालङ्कृता मूर्धजाः ।
वाण्येका समलङ्करोति पुरुषं या संस्कृता धार्यते
क्षीयन्ते खलु भूषणानि सततं वाग्भूषणं भूषणम् ।।

नीति शतकम्

కేయూరాణి న భూషయంతి పురుషం హారా న చంద్రోజ్వలా

న స్నానం న విలేపనం న కుసుమం నాలంకృతా మూర్దజా

వాణ్యేకా సమలంకరోతి పురుషం యా సంస్కృతా ధార్యతే

క్షీయంతే ఖలు భూషణాని సతతం వాగ్భూషణం భూషణం

– నీతి శతకం

keyūrāi na bhūayanti purua hārā na candrojjvalā
na snāna na vilepana na kusuma nālaktā mūrdhajā |
yekā samalakaroti purua yā sasktā dhāryate
kīyante khalu bhūaāni satata vāgbhūaabhūaam ||

– Nīti Śatakam

Translation:

Bracelets do not decorate a person, nor do necklaces glittering like the moon.Nor bath, nor smearing the body with fragrance, nor flowers, and nor decorated hair.

Nor bath, nor smearing the body with fragrance, nor flowers, and nor decorated hair.

Only that speech embellishes a person, which has been upheld with cultural refinement.

Indeed, all ornaments decay. Ornament of speech is always the real ornament.

Find your game

Recently a young student shared this with me. Not just the young graduates but most of us face this at different stages of life and feel stuck. Isn’t it?

If we can’t win a stupid game, it is time to change the rules.

If we can’t change the rules, change to a better game for us.

Let that monkey and bird play that game.

There is enough water in the world for seal and fish to not only survive but have fun and live a blissful life.

Penguin will find its habitat, so are the dog and elephant and will find their strengths to blissfully live their lives rather than feeling lost and failed.

Monkey will succeed in that monkey business since even the bird will soon leave it and soar high in the skies.

Beneficial AGI

I would like to believe these types of deals will focus more on creating the practical aspects of stitching together disperate narrow AI together for a greater good.

I don’t think AGI as the theoretical general intelligence platform will be a reality in any foreseeable future. The concept of AGI needs new paradigm in science and technology for it ever to be a reality.

However it is realistic to expect that over the next few years, we will move towards stitching together different pieces of augmented / narrow AI systems. These will mimic a professional and not a person. AI based Medical and legal professionals that use multiple narrow AI is what we may have that can replace these professionals.

But to create AGI with personality is no where in near future. It however provides for a good theoretical discussion and media coverage.
