The rise of the chief AI officer

People often ask me what I do. I give them a brief rundown on object-oriented philosophy, the idea that the world is made up of objects connecting and networking like the jewels in Indra’s Net. The key thing is the ontology is flat: human (objects) are as real and as powerful as unhuman like technology and culture – like AI. If they are still with me at this stage I tell them, that’s my job: mapping and managing that human/unhuman/cultural network, forming connections that benefit the business. I know AI and I know the company. I should, it built me.
