    I find it fascinating how many comments are rooting for Yuval, as if he was their home team, and this was a competition... I think you're missing the point if you think this was a debate or that one person is better than the other. Two different people with two different skill sets and knowledge bases, discussing complex issues and each offering a different perspective than the other. Between those two there is a lot of good information and I am sure both people find the other to be intelligent and helpful in spreading knowledge. Moving beyond the mindset of rooting for the home team, or needing to win over another is critical in moving forward as a species, and I think both speakers would agree.

    This is a good video for anyone that works for a living in this world and parents to tell to their children. I would have been better off if me and my parents had heard this back when I was in grade school. The same for many others as well, as then we would know that me or them would be far better off in not getting advanced degrees. Don't get me wrong education is very important, but when the skills needed are always changing, that required a more adaptable form of education. As wasting years on college, and then what you have learned is not useful in the world today. Waste of time and money for a piece of paper that is kind of like a boy scouts badge to people that know nothing about the boy scouts.

    Also, some of us enjoy being mavericks and have observed that history is full of people who pursued strange interests that could not be categorized at the time, sometimes because they didn't pursue what was available, were stopped from pursuing what they loved to do at one time, had a spiritual or cosmic experience, and endless etceteras. The predicted reliance on AI to tell us who we are and to direct society in deep ways will likely just make us all more homogeneous, less interesting, and less creative.

    One of the reasons Harari is so incisive in his speech and thinking is that he spends up to 60 days each year in meditation retreat. Yuval’s fans might want to know where his clarity and calm come from. He is able to say “I don’t know” about the future, yet observe, spot deep structure, and give us lean insights.

      I agree. Harari is a good showman and book-seller. However, only Friedman makes me learn new stuff about the world. I love him on ecology, China, Middle East, economy, coal, America, Trump, you name it. As for Harari, he keeps claiming I am ruled by the algorithms. How come I found this conference that I wanted to find. Should not some algorithm work on my head to make sure I cast the right vote in the next election? Last but not least: Harari is a pessimist. I love those rosy pictures from Friedman. He is on the dot!

      Aside from his amazing breadth of knowledge/understanding, Harari seems genuinely concerned/empathetic about humanity's future. He wants us to make the right choices in the aggregate. Friedman might as well be a paid corporate lobbyist. His vibe is flat like his book.

    Yuval Noah Harari and Thomas L. Friedman great discussion. I was astonished by so many negative comments about Thomas L. Friedman. They are different characters with different personalities. Yuval it's more of a humble guy. Friedman maybe not so much, but i don't understand lots of hate comments on him. First time Friedman got my attention was a speech at Yale university. That was an eye opening speech. But anyways, what strikes me the most is, on a discussion about "The Future of Humanity" they haven't talked about many topics that i believe are so important, such as:
    1) Violent games industry
    2) The amount of time most of the people spend watching trash/meaningless content such as cats videos, or on social media...Yuval concerns about the future of education of the kids...that thing about artificial inteligence knowing you better than yourself...
    The term that comes to my mind it's "Natural selection" - If you choose to spend most of the time, consuming meaningless content, the algorythm will learn that and keep feeding you with more nonsense content. Also the opposite is truth. I believe in the future, we won't need to go after a job. the companies will go after us, since they will know us better than we do, based on how we use technology and the use we make out of it.

    Harari is interesting and Friedman is difficult to take. He gives pompousness a bad name.Harari is also simplistic. The idea that the machines will know us better than we know ourselves seems an unproven speculation. However his sense of the deep uncertainty regarding humanity's future seems correct.

    The discussion is truly worthwhile watching. Both of them are Masters in their own spheres. Harari is as usual at his clinical best. I would have agreed more to Mr Friedman if could able to give examples beyond America. Many of his arguments does not fit beyond America. I understand that he was talking on the upside (on accelerated change in technology, etc), but are less implementable or pragmatic in third world countries.
    I think Mr Harari is bang on most of the issues discussed.
    I see this way. If technology has solved most of the problems of humans and presume that it made sapien's life more comfortable, then why most of the Humans are not Happy ??

      I just opted for being a bit less blunt about it. Still, it's stunning to watch someone describing the way to some exploitation-driven dystopia while being completely unaware of it (hint: judging by facial expressions, one participant in the conversation noticed this). It's one of those cases where one seriously wonders if Friedman is just a little slow in general or if this is one of the exceptions where using the term 'brain-washed' is actually justified.

      What he's advocating is a form of social darwinism, repackaged as "meritocracy" and "diversity". The majority will end up living a precarious hand-to-mouth existence in his liberal utopia, while his ilk reap all the gains of the new, slavery-maximising technologies.

      It's difficult to write a critique without being critical. To be constructive, one might say to Friedman; talk slower, stop using God and America as your frame of reference, try to include all people and the whole planet instead of a few corporate anecdotes. This is just my honest observation, not a slam on Friedman. I've liked some of Friedman's speeches in the past.

    Nuclear War, Global Warming and the impact of AI/Machine Learning on our way of life are solid topics. How to get to a place where strategic planning works in a Liberal Democracy is a good topic. Pretending that bad things can’t or won’t happen in 20 years give the trend we see today is a bad solution strategy. Yelling profanities is a poor tacit. Calm listening and thoughtful response might help. Public conversation is a necessity. Civil conversation is the only hope for us to test ideas and address public issues. Many ideas will fall by the wayside. Some will help to show us the way. Let’s hang together and see public issues through. Let’s not quit or give up. That won’t work...

    Thank you 😊. Trying in short words.
    From you came to the World 🌎, you’re all equally as Human. What’s it mean of differences is cultural, religious beliefs language and your surroundings with environmental.
    The most problems in my mind from the kiddies were why do they kill each other’s? Why’d have Warship? What’s wrong with skinny?? As we are Humans.
    I am Buddhist. I would like to know what’s the differences in detail of each religious beliefs. I picked up and learned the lessons of this the campus . I found no differences in the truth of each other’s beliefs since every religious taught us that To be a good generously with helping with compassion. No take trouble for each other’s . Why’d we referred as the Buddhist, the Christian and any. Since we don’t practice as God taught us. It’s man making way to Wars. How’s your doing in opposite? Everything is good going togetherness when you get wisdom of the cores in Respect Beliefs and practice.In my question I don’t think 🤔 the leadership political policies to point us with no morals but the Armed, could these differences ethnic get to the point of Overwhelming Powerful? We’re not the slavery in Power.
    For AI, I have just told you that it’s the tools, the ways of communication that brings us together nearly. How’s good feeling to share good things together. If’s it’s useful to all. But me, the Fool in computer science. There are many friends to support Peacefully for everyone. I would like to thank you 🙏🏼. It’s just my accidentally to touch them . But how’s enjoying togetherness.
    Next, Environment saving, when you look around you’re, there are in changing to your life, in everyday life made you addicted in rushing ways and produce more garbage especially Plastics. How’s much going on to get recycling? Just One straw took time 200 years to resolving. How much a day all over take it. Throwing. I read and we all saw and how’s pitying the sea lives had the plastic the died. How’s about the future food? To our next generations. Don’t hesitate to saving.
    Finally, the next generations, I couldn’t change anyone’s, advice you as genders. For me it’s your character not your inners. Don’t worry. Life’s not only roses petals soft , smooth and the bright shining to you no matter what’s ever going it’s yours to pick and fight on. I hope the good news for you. If I can it’s your ours Future I tried with your.
    I finished with one sentence I have read . Are You trying to be as human as you could be? ✨
    Be together with UN in Multi ethnic society togetherness 😃.
    Let’s make it real.

    There cannot be a humanity as such that we can define as a constant reality because of the nature of human existence.
    We are a complex and combined existence of a physical body and a shadow self(ego) moving with an intellectual sense of conscience and an emotional sense of mind.
    Being an empty self, we have to fill it with meaningful life. That is what we all try to do in our personal ways of creating the reality from being the mystery.

    Is Friedman on sales tour selling his books and companies and their products? For every good idea he gives he advertises something, he lost me. Contrast that with Yuval, such an intelligent wise man full of original ideas

    These comments are refreshingly smart and thoughtful. Yes, Friedman is old and has a lot of cute predigested soundbites, but he's well versed and makes some good points. Harari is an academician. He's better read, less cliche in his thinking, and a bit younger. I find it encouraging that the next generation is smarter and better informed than my own.

    Harari is an amazing and honest historian therefore not a hypocrite by profession. He doesn't mind who wins the election and who doesn't. He doesn't need a better job he already has an honorable one. So he doesn't advertise himself saying how such good human being he is. And on top of everything else he understands the real cause and the direction and the path where humanity is walking through.

      He's a "Fast talker", with triplets like "faster, better, stronger" made me think of a car salesman right away. It's a style that's taught in school. Not serving him well in this situation because the stakes are so high. Humanity is on the line. Chirpy optimism comes off as flippant, insincere.

      I think we need to divide up skills into mini units that an employer sets as 'required knowledge' for each job.
      Want to be a designer for Boeing? You will need unit 48,993, 200, 10 and 6., Want to be a graphic designer for XXX company? You will need 48, 993, 200, 12 and 7. Hence, to move from the one career to the other requires learning for unit 12 and 7. You find new careers/ increased pay based on how few units you need to transfer across. When employers need bigger moves (because there's a shortage of ppl in a field, they have to pay more to entice ppl to learn more units (or harder ones)
      Publish the data every month for the supply/demand ratio for each job type (nationally) and let ppl's self motivation and desire to change their lifestyle drive them to learn.
      Put all the units up online for free. Open halls for monitored exams for the final tests for each unit.

    Professor Harari, I admire you so much. Your broad understanding of the planet and urge human race to face the future really blow my mind. When you said the political leaders of US, Russia, Israel etc are tend to go back to the past while China is the only country looking at the future and doing things for the future. I'm very thrilled to hear that not just because I'm Chinese but more importantly the recognition of our leader's vision. I really hope our planet will have a sustainable future for human race, what we are doing now will have a impact to the future, we should all try individually to contribute good impacts to the planet!

    Acquario is the era of commumities, if communities do gather together with the external aim of achivieng the goal of saving Hummanity, then the new era shall attain its own goal, and every thing will be Ok. I think that Harari here in front of Friedman, an utmost materialistic individual, is losing himself. Yuval is not materialistic he is rather a spiritual person that looks at things in utterly the opposite way
