Today, AI is mainly driven by own-profit-oriented companies (e.g. Facebook, Amazon, Google). Admittedly, there's a lot of AI in the health sector (even in the public health sector) and there's a lot of AI in the sustainability sector – but also mostly driven by obviously own-profit-oriented companies (e.g. Tesla, Uber, Google).
On the other side, one often hears from hard-core economists that centrally planned (= public-profit-oriented) economies (or economic principles) are "the work of the devil" - and that they failed all over history (sometimes for understandable reasons).
But intelligently planning global economic processes and applying these plans with the help of state-of-the-art AI - given the huge amounts of really big data available, and given the argument that globalization is finally for the benefit of all - would seem to be a rewarding endeavour, at least for parts of the AI community.
Why isn't this endeavour undertaken more decidedly? (Or is it?)
Where do I find approaches to apply AI to global economic processes? (Not only describing and understanding but mainly planning and executing?)
