other places in sa eg silicon valley dont do walks- you would have to spend day in a car getting to 3 labs if you were lucky where in mit you can arrange as many as your connections permit
media lab is arguably the most open space both to see range of human enginnering aps that could be mobilised next and to have your card marked of labs to visit
you could start elsewhere eg berners lee's lab - where access to worldwideweb has been kept freer than speech and other things you do with e-
in 2020s you could find out where schwarzman alumni humanise artifucial intelligence and doubke check with oxfrd both the morality and health consequebce of ai- and triangularise with tsinghua how one fifth of worlds people most urgentky need machine intel humanised
or you could go to legatum lab - ironically the worlds poorest vilage women inspited mobile design of banking for a billion unbanked www.bkash.om- today the main billioonaires helping replicate this are gates and ma- however the code is supported by legatum as well as caring backers in dubai and across toyotas foundation of middle eas franchises- a coalition linked in by abdul latif who sponsors some of mit's goal specific sdg lab collaborations
joi ito was headhunted out of japan by the cofounder of media lab negrpronte- in between one of the other lab coordinators wrote the sorceres apprentice- if you werent practically able to do a square mile walk around 2010- sorceres app was one great guide- a journal called innovatins edited by the same family quadirs that scaled digital banking for billion unbanked is also fun to imaginer with 2010 through 2015 though it connects global south with mit wizards not as far as we can search east asia'scoastal belts and digital worlds

While there are 1.4 billion people living in China and 330 in America, there are still 6 billion people
living outside. In the Cold War that America launched against the Soviet Union, many countries
around the world joined America’s side, including the West Europeans and major Third World
countries, like Turkey, Iran, Egypt, Pakistan, Thailand, Indonesia and China. This time around, in the
contest against China, virtually no country has explicitly joined America’s side. By looking at case
studies of countries like Australia and Europe, India & Japan, this week explain America
will find it difficult to marshal a strong coalition against China. Instead, most countries of the world
are likely to develop closer trade and investment links with China and not take sides in the US-China geopolitical contest.
Bearing in mind all the points made above an in earlier weeks, this course will conclude by
recommending that a wiser course of action for America to take would be to realise that fundamen-
tally there are five non-contradictions between America and China. The term non-contradiction is not
often used in Western discourse. The Western mind is used to black-and-white distinctions. One side
is right; one side is wrong. The Chinese mind is different. Both black and white can be right, as
spelled out in the philosophy of yin and yang.
Hence, for example, if the primary goal of America is to improve the well-being of its people and if
China has a similar goal for its people, both sides can cooperate and fulfil their goals. Similarly, both sides share a common goal in overcoming global challenges, like global warming and Covid-19. Even in the area of values and civilizational differences, both sides can adopt a philosophy of live and let live.
The strategic goal of this course therefore is to enable the students to engage in deep reflection on this
major geopolitical contest that has broken out. Deeper reflection will show that a wiser course of
action for both sides would be to avoid an outright zero-sum geopolitical contest and thereby improve
the well-being of their own people and the six billion who live outside. In short, huge stakes are at
play in this contest. A course like this is absolutely critical and vital now.
