Hamdani, the only thing a video proves is that someone can produce that video, nothing more.
You are totally wrong. Peer reviewed research has passed scrutiny by competent fellow researchers while a video can say anything, regardless of truth. I am beginning to think you just like arguing for argument's sake.
In this video, a Universal Basic Services is proposed, instead of Universal Basic Income.

If you can make a convincing argument that philosophy is useless,

The word "sustainability" gets thrown around a lot these days. But what does it actually mean for humanity to be sustainable? Environmental data scientist Hannah Ritchie digs into the numbers behind human progress across centuries, unpacking why the conventional understanding of sustainability is misleading and showing how we can be the first generation of humans to actually achieve it.
Do you know that logic is part of philosophy?
housebuilding is not a subset of hammers and science is not a subset of philosophy.

But it doesn't make either profession admirable or useful.OK. I'm skating on thin ice here as I have a PhD, but the historic word has a different meaning in its modern context. Thinking about what happened is an essential tool in science, but housebuilding is not a subset of hammers and science is not a subset of philosophy.

PS I don't look at videos, I get my information from peer reviewed publications.Programmers of Alpha Zero can't beat it in the games like Go and chess. They are short videos. If you think you don't have adequate critical thinking capacity to understand and analyze them for yourself, I can't force you to.

Hi there! It's Dylan Curious, and in today's video, we had an enlightening conversation with Scott Santens, a renowned researcher and advocate for Universal Basic Income (UBI). We dove deep into the potential impacts of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on our economy and how UBI could serve as a viable economic model for the future. We start by defining UBI as a cash payment that's unconditional, universal, and regularly provided to individuals. This concept is not new - take the Alaska dividend as an example, where residents have received a yearly dividend since 1982.We also explored the potential of using taxes from technologically advanced companies, particularly those benefitting from AI and automation, to fund UBI. This approach could prevent the wealth accumulated from automation from being concentrated with a small group of people. One of the significant aspects of UBI is that it encourages entrepreneurship. It provides an economic safety net, allowing people to take risks without the fear of falling into poverty. Scott shared a story about a woman in Namibia who used her UBI to start a successful baking business. Her business thrived because every person in her village, being a recipient of UBI, had the financial means to become her customer. We also talked about how UBI could help revive smalltown USA. By providing everyone with a basic income, the spending power of the people would increase, creating demand and encouraging the establishment of local businesses. Scott provided a compelling argument against political opposition to UBI. He emphasized that we are all shareholders in the age of AI and automation, having contributed to its development. And as shareholders, we deserve a dividend from this technology - in the form of UBI. In summary, this conversation provided a profound understanding of UBI as a potential solution to economic disparities, particularly in an era dominated by AI and automation. A society supported by UBI could potentially be more purposeful and intrinsically motivated. Thanks for tuning in, don't forget to like, comment, and subscribe for more content on AI, UBI, and other technological advancements.

Since when did logic excluded from philosophy?
