Alison McDowell was the only one in the world who attended Session #5 of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Metaverse conference (12-8-22). See her post here, with all her questions to the panelists. They finally asked her: Where are you from and what do you do? She told them she was a mom from Philadelphia. (See her interaction appear in the chat area of the video below.)
She said to them: I wish we would all just admit this is about turning humans into sensors for AI-interoperable blockchain-based learning agents for the Singularity. It’s being sold to us as a solution for climate crisis and poverty, when really we’re just training our silicon replacements.
