Did You Know?

A video about how fast technological progress is going, how much technology has improved the world and the potential for technology to solve our most pressing challenges. Inspired in part by the book Abundance by Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler, and by the video "Shift Happens 3.0" (also known as "Did You Know") by Karl Fisch and Scott McLeod: www.youtube.com/watch?v=cL9Wu2kWwSY

Among the things mentioned are developments and possibilities within information technology, biotechnology, nanotechnology and artificial intelligence. The video also touches upon how several of these developments are exponential, but it does not get into the realm of technological singularity and the thoughts of people such as Ray Kurzweil, which is the topic of some of my other videos.

The guy who is speaking at the end is Peter Diamandis. The whole talk can be seen here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KxckI8Ttpw

This video built me up with the strongest sense of hope, and then shattered it by dropping all notions of lasting into the true future this video paints. We are at the eve of all of these technologies, but will either be really old or dead before a true science-fiction esque world emerges.

" www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qxSwJC3Ly0 " is playing in my mind. And now on my computer.
