|Comment about Hitler's best and brightest,|
namely, their processes and foci
Too, progress comes from focused effort. Yet, that bit of text struck me as being very applicable to STEM's shortcomings which I call everyone having their heads in STEM sand.
No, this is not a view from loosey-goosey space. Take all of the hype about AI taking over. Of course, it's the best-and-brightests who are pushing the state of the art. Some observers are saying, wit a minute, perhaps. Yet, that is only one of many technological moments which on a close look are very much deleterious to those involved, especially the workers. The buyers only their souls to worry about.
Question: Does STEM-ness obviate ethical issues? Why the STEM thrust as if we have no other ways to look at truth?
