Abed - crossroads to future of humanity, sustainability?

 Two things happened in 1972: the 21st year that Economist journalists had been applying von neumann's greatest scoop "ask what peoples will do with 100 times more tech per decade". 

  • Instead of being bogged down is soundbiting with 90 day financial reporting, The Economist began its ;eap towards emerging as world's favorite veiwspaper: by starting the genre of 40 year (intergeneration) future histories. 
  • Asia's leading young oil company engineer (Royal Dutch Shell Oil Regional CEO for East Pakistan) left the company to spend the rest of his life (nearly half a century) on empowering women to develop poorest nations as much as men.

For Keynsians, Abed went on to deliver the greatest economic miracle of human development with market models that changed aid downside up. Instead of trickle down money from rich gov to poor national gov to ... investment was designed to celebarte womens role as global vilage entrepreneurs in such a way that their gender sustained nation building from world's least dev nations to something better for children to be born into

In broad broad terms, Abed worked on 5 dimensions which werent recoginsed as the 5 deeepst sustainability dev goals to 2015!:But there were practi9cal grassrots networking twists that cannot be mapped from the top down let alone designed into what 2020s people call ai deep learning data integrity

5 equality of women as productive peoples: he focused on empowering women to build 100000 person communities that were literally facing extinction through starvation and health 25 yeras behind average life expectancies

4  education for livielihoods and life: He designed educational partnerships platforms that leaped forward round ;life critical kmowhow networking in the form of vilage microfranchises. For quarter of a century his decade ahead thinking was focused on web00 peoples with no access to electricity. All communications needed to be by word of mouth (expereiential learmning) until sufficient leaps in literacy permitted education by printed works all of which brac partenrs dedited and distributed.

1 Designing banks to end poverty : Financial aid was changed to design vilage businesses wherevver possible ie making aid sustainable instead of an endless chase for charity (which also means no bisoienss develoment of the peoples). Where grants were sought Aned aimed to deliver a world class soliution celebrating the aid brand that partnered brac and making bangladesh a national laboratory for women vilagers ending poverty and integrating advances in sustainability goals

3 last mile health service design

2 last mile food production/secuirity esepcially relevant to infants forst 1000 days nuttritional needs and that of their mothers  (we can think of gola 2 as all human energy inputs including liquids -unless human energy inpiuts come before energy machines need as a worldwide cooperation we'll probably see orwell's edn game where big brother and big machine competes with nature - matematically speaking as eg einstein warned in hios correspondence with Gandhi: putting humans second to machines in every national policy can only take us towards extinction

Culture was important. Paulo Freire inspired relatoionship between brac employees, the next 100000 vilagers operating professional franchises (eg schools, barefoot health, barefoot lawyers); 6 years into Brac's founding yoiu can see the team spirit from these report

For more see www.economistbangla.com where we also look at 112 year learning gaps between 1860 death calcutta of founder of The Economist (James Wilso mission charter bank for india people with queen victoria) and local knowhow networking of oral rehydration to prevent diarrjhea being number 1 killer disease of infannts and enderly in tropical places. You may also not that all of G8 capitals (defining world economy to world wars and some would say since) are located way north of the tropics ; even though most people in population tersms live between in norther tropics; bangaldesh can be thought of as the 150 million person lab most pivotal to the deeepst chalenges to human advancement that the world up to 1972 had spun


1996 was half time in Abed and billion womensaction learning curves. Specifically while oprimal partners of Abed's foirst quarter century of end poverty female networking: brought brac (Bangladesh Rural Advanevment Cooperation) a mobile telecoms net and solar. So abed's last 24 years started to include tech partnerships in his compass of 100 times more dper decade. His focus: firts make sure brac enterprises led up to nationwide wjholesaler value chains that mattered mots for poorest vilage women to continue to build sustainble nation. Open a university not juts for development of bangladesh youth but as next leap for bangladesh women workd's human development labs and so that abed could take a shot at how missing curriculum could colaboratively create 50+ million new jobs - eg playschools for the wprld of sustainable commuinities; ultra graduation of the very porrest before they had wherewithal to apply banking; the wporld's most populous cashless bank

The Japan ambassador convened 2 remembrance brainstorming sessions in remenbrance of fdad who had cpached economist journalist in neumann's 100 times more search for briding what we can now see as 5 world of communityb networksng

Abed asked that people consider designing a mooc of his and a billion poorest womens collaborations. We table these around the 5 primary goals and then discuss 6 legacy stream he hoped would emerge. Unlike the UN goal 17 which separates piublic-private artnerships - abed aleays grounded platforms of chnage so he expecetd 6 dimension P(xpP expoenetial compasses of innovation

jim kim first million person mooc 2013


JimKim 2nd year at world bank 2013

One of the great privileges I have had is the chance to actually participate in social movements -probably the most notable one was the movement to increase access to treatment for people living with hiv/aids- the best part of that movement is that we started in an almost impossible situation .  (Now there was an experience we had before that treating patients with drug-resistant tuberculosis. That never really turned into a movement - it was more the advocacy of a small group of people. )

But HIV treatment turned into a social movement and I really got to see what it felt like and looks like. And there are some things I would want all the students in your class to know.

Know that social movements that have a huge impact are often led by small groups of people. Example ACT UP the social movement that led to the availability of aids treatment was never more than 20 or 30 people. People think it was thousands of people but it never was- thankfully many of them are still alive today and they will tell you it was always about 20 or 30 people.

This echoes that old Margaret Mead Quote: never doubt the ability of a small group of people to change the world, in fact it the only thing that ever has.  I think that is so true. So first all of the students should never doubt the ability of themselves to change the world it can happen.

So the small group of people did was to look at the value chain (that was not the word they used but its the terminology that eg Michael Porter uses) . What you do is look at every thing you need to do to get to where you want to be. Most companies don't do that;  they look at one piece and wonder why they are not changing value as a whole.

So what the aids activists did:  they said lets look at every single step.

STEP 1 there needs to be more basic science research - so a bunch of them like 5! - went and  took on basic science research. In USA, they started going after the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Disease , they went into the National Institute of Health and threw blood on people - you know these scientists - the nerdy scientists never had anything like that happen to them and they didn't like it, they didn't like it at all. And over time , in fact fairly quickly, and we should take our hat off to President Reagan for doing this they started moving money to NIH and so the research started.

STEP 2 If there is a promising molecule you have to get it into the industry because public sector institutions are not going to take this to a drug, there has to be a profit motive.  So they made it easier for molecules to go to the founder into the private sector.

STEP 3 : they had to test those drugs so they put their own bodies on the line to test the drugs.

STEP 4 then they had to get into the last stage of clinical trials and into the market. So one guy , Mark Harrington, became an expert on the Food and Drug Administration. I mean this is a guy who has an undergraduate degree from Harvard - smart guy. He became an expert on FDA and shrunk the time it takes to get a molecule from discovery to approval and on the market - shrunk the time dramatically. So you'd think at that point when they had a real treatment in 1996 they would stop.  But that's not where they stopped. They took the next step -

STEP 5 They said: damned if we are going to let something that has come from so much work will only be available for those who can afford to pay for it. So the next thing was work with us to try and make sure that everyone in the world would be able to access it. So for them the social movement was not about a feel good rally. They did that too, but mostly it wasn't feel good- they latched themselves to the white house, they threw blood on people and got arrested, they did things that would make anyone else feel really uncomfortable  but they knew that is what they needed to do to get through the value chain.

So what I would say is being part of a social movement is going to be the most exhilarating memorable thing you are ever going to do. But understand how hard it is , and understand how serious you are going to need to be about everything it is going to take to get to the change you want, and then take it on as there is nothing better you can do

We need to start a movement to end poverty , and it looks like folks are doing it there is a global poverty project that has begun doing it they are holding big concerts - they are serious about ending poverty. Pope Francis is serious about ending poverty, I had a great opportunity to sit with him and after years of struggling with my Spanish in Peru, it was good enough  to speak to him in Spanish . I asked him I said I need your help, I need your help , we need to start a social movement. and he just said  Conta Comigo "count on me".

This (End Poverty) has to be the next movement. If you look at all the steps is going to take to end poverty its a pretty broad mix. And that's the great news- we need everybody. We need writers who can write about this, we need engineers, doctors, lawyers, artists , everyone who can capture the imagination of the world to end poverty. There's a role but take a step back and say what is it going to take, what part of it can I take on, and how can we really make it happen.

sir fazle abed

we mourn the loss of the greatest hero we have ever been privileged to meet sir fazle abed
he developed systems of collaboration that are benchmarks for village women to end poverty by maximising community last mile service/franchises
in health
food security
community safety/resiliency
livelihood education
if you now where optimal case studies are published we welcome the chance to celebrate - chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

sir fazle changed top down disaster relief and development from trickle down charity to locally sustainable business models

brac partnerships - built on trust in abed to be the largest in ngo world can be mapped in two halves of fazle abed's 50 years dedication to poverty alleviation before which he spent 10 years ascending to east pakistan regional ceo at royal dutch shell - and like gandhi being a teenage student abroad in fazle abeds case being in the 200th class studying markets and machines at glasgow university started by adam smith and james watt

first quarter of century - all peer to peer or paper based as villagers had no aceess to electricity grids

second quarter of century as partners brought mobile and solar to villages how could brac go 3 dimensional
- global where other nations wanted to replicate brac community solutions,
national market leadership so that brac could design total value chaines to integrate poorest
local- last mile- across 100000 village microfranchises

we will try to build some tours celebrating the legacies sir fazle hoped that he had seeded - in particular brac university as one of the lead partners of soros osun network launched at world economic forum round 20 colleges and researchers most concerned with youth being the sdg generation

and understanding the fit of 7 parts to the financial services value chain which ranged from fintechs number 1 platform the unbanked bkash linkin in final partners of fazle aded including jack ma's ant finance and gates foundation.

ultra poverty research- whose systemcn alalysis earned boston poverty lab a nobel prize

we also miss one of the 5 deepest networkers fighting against infectious diseases a coalition that came together with soros funding to include bostons jim kim and paul farmer and medecins sans frontieres in ebola hit liberia and sierra leone two of the nations that soros had selected for brac international to support

death of abed - one of history's first global youth scholars

we first met abed in 2008- he was in his last 12 years of 50 serving very poorest womens families and communities- bangladesh became the place i travelled to most often apart from 3 places that have been by home uk us france - our testimony web www.fazleabed.com- mapping partners in his dream legacy the open university and bank of sdgs is at valuetrue.com
back to 3 of the great global students

3 of history's most interesting teenage explorers of new universities -1880s gandhi 1950s singh and abed

if you disagree with this diaspora scottish team recount of the 260 years since Adam Smith asked 4 big question on the future of markets alongside fellow Glasgow U James Watt of the future of Industrial Revolution and Engines, please know that we follow The Economist's time honored offer- we will publish any letter we understand as long as it does not express hatred and it offers a clear contact point

The teenage Gandhi didn't see anything worth life time studies in mumbai so he crowdfunded from his family to go to london (then centre of empire) to qualify as a barrister at bar of london. It was quite a future shock for everyone involved -eg gandhi was dismayed how many students of ruling the empire seemed to be drunk by the time. Gandhi spent his relaxation time forming a cross-cultural consciousness student network of every foreign student in london who didnt partake of alcohol. This was one of 7 accidents that was to make him the most worldwide  networked person of his era -at least across the continents of asia where most people lived,  africa and europe. Much later Gandhi was to perfect interacting with the quakers. They are one of the most peaceful revolutionary movements. They invite the most powerful people to speak to a circle of them with one house rule. Once the speaker has spoken anyone in the circle is free to ask one and only one question. This reverses the usual question time - where there is a battle to be one of the few questioners. In the quakers format question first has no advantage,. The circle literally quakes to see who will be the ice breaker with the high and mighty speaker. May eastern conscious group formats minimise verbal interactions anyway- somehow quaker and consciousness quietly took london by storm in the 1920s. This was one of 2 reasons why london gave away itgs empire so quickly. The other was the nation was too broke after world war 2 to try and oppose a fifth of the worlds peoples demands. Yet the disadvantage of this was the handover was hasty. The lawyer  sir kenneth kemp who drafted version 0 of the legalese of india's independence and gandhi had both expected the whole continent to be one united states of india. At le last moment west pakistan's aga khan family's stamped on mountbaten's food and demanded a partitioning - so one fifth of people ended up with india and west pakistan as a new empire ruling over east pakistan
the second and third accidents occurred when he returned to bombay (now called mumbai) to find himself overqualified- those with big legal cases wanted a british bar of london barrister. GOING VIRAL Gandhi started writing about community challenges for a local newspaper. He would also pay street boys to sample copies of his writings. meanwhile he was finally offered a stream of work by the indian diaspora in south africa- before taking up this position- one of his articles had been sent by reuters from mumbai to london- the brits started spying on how was it that a young indian was linking across the empire on deeply social issues but with the legal power of a barrister

Although mush of gandhi's work only served to slightly delay apartheid becoming south africa's legal system it wasnt until 1906 when he himself wAs thrown out of a train for having the wrong colored skin to travel first class that gandhi had his aha moment - the law of london was spiralling poverty among his kinsfolk- not just in south africa but back home in india. Gandhi had a plan- aim to design a totally new livelihood-based education system before confronting lawyers with demands for independence.
4th accident Over the next 20 years gandhi commuted between bombay, durban and london- the ships he took started to become a floating university with a few weeks of courses mediated by MG. On one of hos stopovers in london world war 1 broke lout. Gandhi wasnt able to sail for several months- so as a pacifist he joined the war effort by serving in london's red cross. Community health services were to become a core curriculum in gandhi's education for all grades. He formed ashram which were village cooperatives where whole families lived and both worked and learned together on food security and other rural developments including hme made textiles.
5th accident a centrepiece of gandhi's last visit to london was a so-called roundtable in 1925 at the quakers house auditorium opposite euston station - one of the only affordable space where over 1000 people can meet. By this time people from all over europe were coming to listen to an asian who was declaring this was his last visit to the capital and start of his peaceful disobedience campaigns back in india. Surprisingly a row started with the suffragettes claiming gandhi was too chauvanistic - if he was going to free the fifth of the world who came form India- how would he include women. It is rumored that this is how maria montessori was matched up with him - both the most innovative educator of her age and a woman who dared launch a new form of schooling all across Indian villages. When it comes to total educational reform- Gandhi may not quite have scaled a new university but with mari he changed primary education especially in rural area
6th gandhi invented tabloid publicity stunts with serious messages. British Law monopoiised the making of salt. So Gandhi organises  a march from the rural ares to the coast where his comrades started to boil sea water to make salt crystals. They were basten over the head by british troops supported by salts monopoly law. My maternal grandfather sir kenneth kemp  - chief justice of mumbai- spent 20 years judging Gandhi before grandad last job writing up the legalese of india's independence.
7 so it was the father of india independence became his half century's most famous man across the half hempishere of the old world- and just at that peak was assassinated.

In the 1950s Manmohan Singh went to corpus chrisii cambridge to study with Keynes (died 1946) favorite tutors. His thesis how to design national economies aso as to compound no underclasses inside the nation or across borders to neighbouring nations. Singh appeared at indika's inflection point in the mid 1990s - the first time india effectively came out tfo world markets. He may not have been able to reform Indi's bureaucracy much but he was there at india's liftoff as a world trader- and while there many never be a new university of manmohan singh its his world trade alumni that give the fifth of people who come from india a leap into the 21st C

Also in te 1950s Fazle Abed came from what by then was called East Pakistan (ie what had been the most easterly coastal area of India under Britannia) to Glasgow University to study the future of shpo engineering. In one sense Glasgow U was a good choice as since the 1760 it has been the origin of alumni of moral markets as well as the future of engines.And spent the 1960s becoming an accountant. In the 2020s any university that is not connected with brac partners cant really claim to be freeing its students to do the most ulta solutions of any of the 17 sdgs- if you dont have the trust of the very poorest quarter billion of village women you cant expect to so sustainability goals for the bottom billion of even the boot half of the world.

2020 gandhi diary in the era of virus rules the world
i have compiled a brochure with 100 links to how soros sees the world- please say if individually or as a group you would like to explore it

one of the odd things as soros spends his last few years converging 32 billion dollars of philanthropy vienna is brilliantly linkedin- who his first connector with india is i cannot yet find

i agree one truly useful link would be where some of india's biggest health organisations have tried to make eg innoculations affordable - the exact opposite to all of americas biggest health care corporates

but while not wishing to sound gloomy, india for last 20 years has worried me more and more-  india's fifth of world people may be least connected from community up and with a national identity uniting the peoples- to end the virus or at minimum they will need very different processes than whatever mr trump is ruling over

i think gandhi would be shocked his 40 years 1906-46 were best of kind at that time-  through 40 years of diaries at the economist, my father observed one clue that made him unpopular- least developed nations worst process would be so-called democratic but not adam smithian - i fear thats india systemic weakness but may be i am biassed - indira gandhi was the only national leader to refuse my father a journalistic visa even though my maternal grandfather wrote up legalese for independence of india after 20 years with gandhi in mumbai coming from 4 generations of diaspora scots in mumbai who were social lawyers nurses or pharmacists

another irony back in late 1970s soros first became a philanthropist in south africa and emerging movements around mandela but these dont seem to have criss-crossed in soros expert world to india/gandhians

somewhere lurking in the uk is the knowledge of the attenborough family- 60 years into tv broadcasting, david still shines on bbc and natures common sense voice- sadly his brother richard who directed the movie gandhi and for many years chaired londons deepest historical club of gandhi which goes back to the quakers roundtable of 1925 passed almost a decade ago-the bbc nor western english has never understood gandhi's idea from 1906- redesign whole livelihood education stem through communities before demanding independence

einstein congratulated gandhi as being the only systems thinking global leader of his era- and of course einstein remianis maths number 1 champion of the more mcro you go the more humanly sustainable your knowhow networking can be

1 From the start of the 20th century Gandhi sustained the worldwide movements asking how free peoples of india – the quarter of the world – were to be in designing machines for their development needs.
 2 Gandhi directly asked the similar question for peoples of colored skin in south Africa- both Indians who had connected trades between britannia superports of calcutta , Bombay, and Durban (which remained of huge strategic leverage until suez canal. -see map
3 Indirectly he was asking the analogous question for all 6 tenths of human beings  living on the continent of asia who had been locked out of industrial development – the north sea empires- primarily Britain, Netherlands France had colonized almost the whole of the south coastal belts of the old worlds of asia and Africa.

4 it can be instructive to revisit adam smith’s key question- how will engines be financed and marketed around the globe at pivotal turning points in history
1760-1775 – the first 16 years of his glasgow u colleagues james watt steam engines
1843-1860 when james Wilson started the economist to renew the debate prompting queen Victoria to wonder whether commonwealth instead of slave trading was a more valuable way to rule empire
Gandhi’s 20th century questioning- whee a first missed opportunity was 1913 – census divides muslim, hindhi; capital moved from Calcutta to delhi – this explains why india’s independence was misunderstood at birth of united nations in 1945; not reviewed at key opportunities – start of  1960s moon race and 4 redevelopment technologies ; ironically when Bangladesh became independent 50 years of fazle abed’s work was never adapted to india in spite of its gandhian and montessori elements blended with Calcutta lab’s innovation of oral rehydration which became core to women building rural village networks in Bangladesh and china
By the time manmohan singh helped to open up india to world trade, india’s post industrial development was led by rich capitalists while the huge bureaucracy of Indian parliament and cultural divisions failed to integrate gandhi’s talisman of ending poverty. Ironically india’s Nilekani led the world’s development of telecentres leveraging india’s mathematical and English speaking skills out of bangalore. But india didn’t have the good fortune of one of its superstar English speaking teachers visit seattle at the birth of ecommerce and in the 11th year of code for personal computer networking and 7th year of worldwide webbing -see part 2 of the life stories of jack ma, fazle abed and George soros

2020 year of adam smith & ban ki-moon ?

ban ki-moon : breaking who will have the greatest action networking year for humanity in 2020- could it be ban ki-moon - his chances to drop in on Glasgow come with november's Cop26 following his first year of action briefing of www.gca.org at rotterdam in october and helping Japan Jack Ma and the world celebrate the most ethical olympics superstars -presumably he also shares action tips top maximise:
the worldwide work of Guterres; the 75th birthday of the UNGA led by a nigeria national; the un world trade for sdgs led out of Geneva by Kenyan Kitsui,, the un ambassador for livelihood education jack ma, the UN 2nd annual update on DigitalCooperation the other half of the korean world's collest duo : jim kim...

I love going back to what adam smith wrote less than half a century after England colonised scotland

in 1759 moral sentiments he defined what it would take for a market to be transparent - he never said it was the natural or free state of a market that made it transparent- instead he begged people to make sure enough people could see the clots and quality of market offers

published in 1776 "advantages of nations"  he wrote why it would be a disaster  a small island like britain tried to constrain the economy of a continent assuming enough people went to populae america- why not design win-win trades with a nation that is bound to be bigger

in providing the wisest evaluations on education - he clarified future disasters embedded in  system of english education- of oxford he opined hopeless place - not designed to benefit youth bot for convenience of teachers and bureaucrats

soros may have been the first modernday billionaire philanthropist in the west - he's controversial 1) for leading the world of finance away from politicians ruling over paper money 2) not being thin skinned about entrepreneurial failures

as far as we know he was
first investor in village mobile phones to end poverty- the history o0f how rural bangladesh transformed through decades of no electricity to the smartest operato0r of digital banking for the poor and the largest ngo cluster is most fully understood from alumni of sir fazle abed and at brac university

he's started new economics networks as a response to sub-prime and issued a series of challenges to the what the eu required youth to bail ot elders system failures rg sub prime banking and ponzi scheme pension

concerned to do the best (eg with gorbachev) to welcome russian people back into the world's opportunities- he also hunted out jim kim and paul farmer and asked them to transfer their end tb services to russian prisons where many brave dissidents were confined

Being a neighbor of russia has been complicated both for the neighbors people and for Russian people.Its never right in our view for powerful country's leaders to stop talking to each other. Additionally the European Union Northern members have put sp much attention on North Eurasia that they have let the whole of the med sean neighborhood fall into disrepair - even though the french in particular had special responsibility for north africa , together with Britain in suez and middle east- and Italy Turkey Greece where the land bridge connects the 3 continents of europe asia and africa

Soros was one of the first billionairea to sponsor a new university - he located ths in his city of birth budapest (also the city of von neumann's students years- sadly in late 2010s this has fallen victim to nationalist pressures caused we would say by the EU's carelessness or other forces beyond season

his earliest philanthropy supported black youth in south africa in late 1970s

his 25+ years of hosting open society association is likely as sincere as a billionnaire can get- yet there are times when human rights networks abuse sustainable human development -it saddens us when soros sdg intent (celebration of all loving and hard working entrepreneurial cultures)  is misused by lobbies that distort a total system advance of a nation or community network


.storyline : done more for sdgs than any other superstar and climate attention (unless you know better)- as he says his beloved CA is 5th of all economies (exceeded only by china japan germany and of course usa- but note california is a pacific place in terms of urgent climate and other sdg innovations its people need to humansAI and entrepreneur- it cant afford another apprentice president to 2025) . click for more on value chain crisis of superstardom

history note: when Glasgow University most practical alumni - James Watt 1760s - started experimenting with the future of engineering - he wasnt afraid of the idea that one day a machine could do the lifting of 10 or even a million horse's power -indeed how many sorts of joyful app by and for the peo0ples could that generate

as we enter the 2020s don't be afraid of machines whose statistical capability can according to moores law be a billions if not trillions times more than a separate human brain- dont worry about the language academics use AI (machine or Artificial Intelligence) is as much for everyone to linkin as the webs of Tim Berner Lee- one way to free humansAI is to adjectivise it - there is AI Health- eg if every cancer charity that has data pooled it as clarified in our 1984 fieldbook the 2025 report - the leap forward in end cancer services would be as extraordinary as they would be low cost - or consider this example of AI Citizens - will your city change more in 2020s than in last 50 years?

there is a reason why your most valued entrepreneurial friends and your teachers' kids urgently need to make a list of every city you love and start sharing AI citizen- this is to do with 5G connectivity without which AI cant be linkedin- because of greedy government spectrum auctions most western cities wont be the first to experiment with AI citizens

- put another way we (be you american , a lover of planet earth or an open minded kind of a girl or boy) need to ask schwarzenegger to share a lits of which former mayors get this eg if you are american bloomberg and which dont get AI citizen eg giuliani-

 some places will get one moment in the sun to celebrate with the world AI citizen - eg thanks to the Olympics relay    (including WRJ ban ki-moon and Jack Ma) expect mayors of Tokyo 2020 Beijing 2022 Paris 2024 to be APPing with schwarzenegger's, climate supporters and california's greatest mutual fan clubs

brookings highlights 2010s

There has been much discussion about artificial intelligence (AI) and workforce disruption. But determining what work AI may take over from humans is difficult when there’s no agreement on the technology’s full capabilities. A new analysis of AI-based patents offers some helpful clues.
