Staggering Promise of Exponential Technologies in a Succinct 5-Minute Video
Have you ever wanted to explain exponential technology to someone—but didn’t know where to start? We’ve got a video for you. Watch Peter Diamandis and DrawShop discuss six key technologies at the heart of today’s exponential boom.
A few highlights? In 25 years, computers will be microscopic, nearly infinite in supply, and basically free. Artificial intelligence, more like Iron Man’s J.A.R.V.I.S. than IBM’s Watson, will gather “incomprehensible amounts of data from the internet to make accurate split-second decisions.” Synthetic biology will program DNA to produce tailor-made foods, fuels, and vaccines.
This is, true to form, an unabashedly optimistic and exceptionally broad forecast. But better to begin by dreaming the possible than to linger overlong debating the “impossible.” In any case, Diamandis thinks the next quarter century promises to be a wild ride. Hard to disagree with that. Be sure to check it out and decide for yourself.
