Where are you from?

Grew up in Albany, NY. Living in Chestnut Hill, MA.

Do you work in a field related to the future?

Yes, building the future of education. Founded EnlightenU, a student built education that allows people to think and understand for themselves rather than being told what and how to think. A crowdsourced education allows people to learn from the best teachers on the Internet. My next project is a platform that is a combination of Wikipedia and reddit. It open-sources the building of companies, organizations, services and products. There is no owner or equity. Revenue is distributed to those who collaborate. Anyone can help improve the service or product.

What are you looking forward to most about the future?

When AI/robots can do all of the work required for humans to survive (food/shelter/clean water) so people will no longer have to "work" but will be able to spend all their time doing what they are passionate about.

Where do you see society in 10, 25, and 50 years?

In 10 years - Automation of many jobs. Beginning of transhumanist surgeries for the disabled. In 25 years - Virtual worlds. In 50 years - AI will be smarter than humans living in 2014, but so will the humans of 2064. Advancements in artificial intelligence, we allow us to augment human intelligence. A large portion of the population is living in virtual worlds, which seem just as "real" as the real world.

Introduction

I love thinking and talking about, but most of all building the future. Founder of EnlightenU, a community built education! Proud Boston College alum.
