The Singularity and More
Over the last several decades, the digital revolution has changed nearly every aspect of our lives. The pace of progress in computers has been accelerating, and today, computers and networks are in nearly every industry and home across the world.
one of my favorite authors is Ray Kurzweil and his book The Singularity Is Near, presents one of my favorite and believable visions of the future.
According to Kurzweil’s law of accelerating returns, technological progress is moving ahead at an exponential rate, especially in information technologies.
The basic concept is that today’s best tools will help us build even better tools tomorrow, which fuels the acceleration of technology.
As the pace continues to accelerate, we always ask ourselves what surprising and powerful changes are in store us ?
On this show, we will discuss threee three technological areas Kurzweil believes are poised to change our world the most this century. Genetics, Nanotechnology, and Robotics Of all the technologies riding the wave of exponential progress, Kurzweil identifies genetics, nanotechnology, and robotics as the three overlapping revolutions which will define our lives in the decades to come. In what ways are these technologies revolutionary? • The genetics revolution will allow us to reprogram our own biology. • The nanotechnology revolution will allow us to manipulate matter at the molecular and atomic scale. • The robotics revolution will allow us to create a greater than human non-biological intelligence.
