improving understanding of peoples across hemispheres- none more so than east-west; two thirds of humans live on the continent of asia with a few more per cent of the world's population living in what have emerged as the extraordinary productive hi-tech islands - japan, taiwan , hk, singapore. by the late 19th century all of the people on the asian continent had been colonised or had their trading systems blocked by western empires- primarly britain's. given this, we find it extraordinary valuable to study how 3 people from the orient travelled to the west and went on to change both hemispheres: gandhi
below we look at how jack ma's first trip to the usa - seattle 1995 changed the world. he was then his city hangzhou's most popular english teacher- amazon's launch of ecommerce he returned to china to form a network with energetic youth and extraordinary investors including japan's hi tech billionnaire masa son and the silicon valley founder of yahoo jerry yang- how can ecommerce and efinance create the most jobs when china's web infrasucture arrives-?
Having become one of the world's biggest marketmakers, ma was tech city host of china's g20 2016 and at the un he was invited to become worldwide youth jobs adviser;in 2017 he announced that from 2019 september he would return full time to education- according to ma he couldnt see how to impact the 4 most vital social markets with commerce- this web tracks his progress as a return to full time education and his goal of celebrating how the sdg generation can change education , health, green markets, sports and arts markets
unlike ma, gandhi and abed travelled to britain in their teens - gandhi to study law in 1880s, abed to study engineering and shipping at glasgow uni of 1950s.--all three changed the livelihoods and sustainability of hundreds of millions of people in the race to end systemic poverty. unlike gandhi, graduate abed's 10 year spent ascending to become regional ceo of royal dutch shell gave him the perfect mix of engineering and admin experience to empower the poorest to nation build

what few people dispute is
from around age 11 to 31 (1995) he became one of china's most massive english teachers- living in possibly the first designated tourist tow hangzhou famous 700 years earlier as marco polo's fav market town- in the old world of the 13th century there were 2 places to ship trade - round the med sea eg see venice; starting at hangzhou which was at one end of the world's largest canal to beijing, an an inland river town sail up river hit the sea where shaghsai now stans follow bay north round china korean coastlines as we call the today and from there another 30 miles or so to islandsw of japan
as well as these 2 great shipping trading bays hangzhou represented the eastern end of the overland silk road whose west end was on the medsea lanbridge in asia and to europe and africa depending whether you followed med sea coastline notrh and west or sputh and west
in 1995 ma was hired to do a translation job - his first visit to usa was seattle just as bezos was launching amazon- for the next 24 years ma became one of the worlds 2 greatest market makers; but there was almost nothing in common to the purposes and consequences of bezos and ma
for one thing it would be almost 10 years before any mass of cinese were online
ma found extraordinary partners being inttroduced by taiwan american jerry yang founder of yahoo to japans biggest tech investor masoa soon softback; jack was about maximising jobs; he didnt begin ecommerce by owning stock rather the algorithms for delivery logistivcs including villages and cities
banks in china did not really offewre credit or debit cards - so jck ma leapt ahead with alipay mobile money transactions
by looking at how opposite bezos and ma's ecoomerce development became pretty much every nation has a choce whic sort of model do they want
we have met ying lowrey whose book the alibaba way offers a diary of what happened around jack from 1995 to 2014- she is an interesting lady who stared life as barefoot chinese doctor; spent about 25 years developing small enterpruses in usa; came back to beijing's top university tsinghua found they offered no course on small enterprises; was told to go see jack ma who as head of china rntrepreneu club could share detals on chinas small startup world
anyway in 2017 ma announced he would go bac to teaching dsept 2019- he said with commerce i can impact markets that interest me most education, health, going green, arys soprts
covid and its inteference of the olympics which jack and sofr bank had hoped to make the biggest asia social sdialogue to start 2020s have turned many of jack ma's partnerships upside down trump's decoupling of china has led china to reciprocate in terms of reducing which chinese tech companies have an american listing
ma is working away on village schools ; and training youh entrepreneus across africa; he has huge investments in cloud and i platforms as ways to gravitate tech wizards- if youth ever do become the sustainability generation - dont be surprsed if mapops up again
as i say positve news jack ma always welcome firstname.lastname@example.org the 3 ties i have seen him present to 2000 audiences at new york UN, AT DETROIT AND TORONTO - everyone seemed to gain more innovatio0n insights per minute than any other presenter i have seen life- what a teacher
The State of Digital Transformation, a new report published by the Ash Center and authored by David Eaves, HKS Lecturer of Public Policy and Lauren Lombardo MPP 2021 highlights key lessons learned from the digital response to the coronavirus pandemic. Drawn from a comprehensive set of interviews and discussions with key digital government stakeholders from around the world, the paper argues that because many governments hadn’t invested in digital services, their crisis response was insufficient. Even governments that had made progress in digitizing public services struggled to respond as the pandemic laid bare every pain point in their service delivery process. In other words, according to Eaves and Lombardo, crisis response is digital response.
The stories of successful responses to COVID-19 highlighted that, as the pandemic unfolded, there was no time to build new capabilities, hire and train new staff, or ask for new levers. Governments had to fight the crisis with the tools they already had. The authors ask if government has truly internalized that future crisis responses must be digital-centric.
jack maapparently ended being chief decisin maker for alibaba in sept 2019- he wanted to focus onbeducation, health, green and youth's heroes eg arts/sports - olympics as stahes where youth own the future's their generation needs to sustain - the opposite of old peoples media thoogh hopefull what we the parents of this world live for
as of nov 2020 it had been quite a year
jack published the wuhan frint line healthworkers lesoons book
he had chaired the un digital cooperation report changing the focus of guterres leadership; he had helped the un celebrate african youth entrepreneurs
his 15 billion dollar r&d of ai network had branched through interesting spaces from west coast usa to hangzhou via israel and moscow and indded wherever younbg tech people had least oportunity to co-create humans ai world
he remained cheer of two of china's most innovative business clubs As chairman of both the China Entrepreneur Club and the General Association of Zhejiang Entrepreneurs,
yet everything he had hoped to connect korean, japanese chinese youth celebrating was torn aunder by the virus canceling the olympics
his november sppech in shanghia is fascinating as it clarifies how the elders world of valuation no longer can sustain what humans locally need most to unite and yet the media owner of the hk paper publishing this is himself caught in waves of different chinese and global authorities

june20 alizilla Machine intelligence must go hand-in-hand with human wisdom, Alibaba Group founder Jack Ma said Thursday.
Speaking at the World Artificial Intelligence Conference, Ma said that humans should strive to better understand themselves and the Earth, especially in the face of a global crisis like the Covid-19 outbreak.
“This pandemic has shown us how little we know about ourselves and how little we know about the Earth. Because we don’t know ourselves, don’t know the world we are living in, don’t understand the Earth and don’t know how to cherish and preserve the Earth, we have created many troubles and disasters,” Ma said via video message. He added that, despite the resources, wealth, knowledge and technological prowess enjoyed by society today, human wisdom was still the key to addressing the world’s challenges and was needed to “enhance communication and cooperation” to find impactful and long-lasting solutions.
With the theme of “Intelligent World, Indivisible Community,” the three-day conference features presentations, keynote speeches and panel discussions with prominent global figures from the realm of science and technology, including Turing Award winners Yoshua Bengio and Andrew Yao, Director General of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization Li Yong and Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
In his speech during the opening ceremony, Ma said that while the technologies of the past improved our way of living, the technologies of today and tomorrow should help humankind survive better.
“During the pandemic, people have used internet technology to survive, not just for themselves, but also for others,” he said. “There are many cases: going to school, having a meeting, shopping, visiting a doctor – all of these activities rely on digital technology. To innovate in order to survive is the strongest and most irresistible force.”
He also pointed to an AI algorithm that Alibaba’s research and innovation institute DAMO Academy developed to help diagnose Covid-19. Informed by data from thousands of computed-tomography scans and trained by deep learning, the algorithm can accurately detect the virus in 20 seconds, vastly shortening the time it takes for doctors to review CT scans, confirm cases and move on to treatment and supportive measures.
Ma said that such innovations were indicative of the quickening pace of digitalization in the world.
“Technological transformation will come earlier and its speed will accelerate. We need to be ready,” he said
As a professor at the University of Montreal, Yoshua Bengio won the Turing Award for his outstanding contributions to deep learning technology, which is the highest honor in the field of computer science. It is the deep learning technology that has set off a wave of artificial intelligence renaissance, and has made driverless cars, instant speech translation, and face recognition possible.
Professor Manuel Blum, winner of the Turing Award in 1995, member of the American Academy of Sciences (National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, American Academy of Arts and Sciences), is currently a professor in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. He is a pioneer in cryptographic systems and program verification, one of the main founders of computational complexity theory, and a master of theoretical computer science in the world.
