# Check out my new paper on “Economics of Human-AI Ecosystem: Value Bias and Lost Utility in Multi-Dimensional Gaps”

In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) decision-making and autonomous systems became an integrated part of the economy, industry, and society. The evolving economy of the human-AI ecosystem raising concerns regarding the risks and values inherited in AI systems. This paper [1] investigates the dynamics of creation and exchange of values and points out gaps in perception of cost-value, knowledge, space and time dimensions. It shows aspects of value bias in human perception of achievements and costs that encoded in AI systems. It also proposes rethinking hard goals definitions and cost-optimal problem-solving principles in the lens of effectiveness and efficiency in the development of trusted machines. The paper suggests a value-driven with cost awareness strategy and principles for problem-solving and planning of effective research progress to address real-world problems that involve diverse forms of achievements, investments, and survival scenarios.

# The Illusion of Being Right and The Paradox of Being Right and Making The Right Things Happen

Sometimes there is no credit for being right.
In many cases, there is a big difference between being right and making the right things happen.

If you see a disaster and you are right about this disaster going to happen, there are few decisions you can take:
1. If you want to be right, if you want the credit (sometimes without even notice) you will be right if you will show that it happened “hey here I told here is the disaster as I told you, it happened, I am right “ – so you were right and here is your credit, but what is the point of this credit?
2. If you want to make the right thing happen, you must to put yourself aside, eliminate the human weakness of wanting to be right, look at the big picture, with you small inside it (not too small, but as little as you really are) be aware of the thinking error in being right and making right things happen. If you do all this, you must know that by making the right things happen you prevent from a disaster to happen, and by doing this you lose the only proof of you being right. And sometimes even you can not be sure that you were right, but if you are focused on the right things to happen, who cares? If the new ways are better(maybe not perfect, or not perfect yet), then screw the old path and the credit. Continue Reading The Illusion of Being Right and The Paradox of Being Right and Making The Right Things Happen

# How Can We Know if Our Coin is a Currency?

### How Can We Know if Our Coin is a Currency?

Well, we can bite the coin and try to taste currency. But what is the taste of currency?
For me, it tastes like bread and a far flavor of a loan. It is here and now, but also there, in the future… weird?

Here is my minimum criterion for a coin to be currency, two guiding questions to decide:

• Can my coin buy me bread?
• Can I make a loan of my coin?

If both are true, maybe I have currency. Otherwise, perhaps I have a medal.
I don’t say if it is good or bad, matching expectations is all that is it about.

Would love to hear your thoughts on that.
