Man is part of nature and health is a matter of balance. Over 3/4 of the human brain stem is devoted to sensing nature’s vibrations as light, sound, smell, and touch. Technologies available today can unveil information hidden in today’s “noise” for interpretation by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). It is critical that as individuals and community leaders we don’t ignore this AI- and data-driven revolution. The invention of steam engine in the 17th century ushered in an era of machines replacing the muscle power of human beings. The second machine age, led by AI, requires us to learn from the past, requires us to be more human than ever, to work out how to use AI, prepare our communities for AI, avoid ethical pitfalls of AI; and as leaders, to ensure our communities are on the leading-end and not the receiving-end of AI.
