Where are you from?

Vermont (23 yrs), San Diego (10), Washington DC (1), Boulder CO (1), Lexington MA (17), Upper Valley NH (3), and now Belmont MA (2 yrs).

Do you work in a field related to the future?

Yes, developing research guidance engine (machine learning technology) for multiple domains, related to accelerating biomedical research > 20-fold and research into energy-technology feedback (which relates to "singularity").

What are you looking forward to most about the future?

Alleviating suffering of human disease and developing "hyper-learning", as well as increased energy efficiency and technologies to reduce burdens of poverty worldwide.

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

2024 -- biotech and biomedical, particularly nanotechnologies; curing cancer into Phase II clinical; advanced CNS therapy; poor jobs and economy, robotics still increasing unemployment and wealth-poverty gap wider ; 2031 -- High energy efficiency, advanced solar, enhanced geothermal, fusion, raising living standards for poor; Close to solving human aging, for the wealthy; Cars on biofuels get 70 mpg; flying cars, automated vehicles widespread; Close to the singularity with advanced AI; 2064 -- Aging conquered, but now a major social challenge; Cities going 3D, building up in multiple layers; nuclear fusion providing enormous energy, driving hydrogen economy; human-machine integration, electronics embedded into people, nano-technology interwiring, creating hyper-intelligent transhumans (who don't age); robots doing most of the heavy lifting, with humans struggling to find meaningful roles as needed contributors in society. Some very strange art and political issues!
