10 years: We are in the uncanny valley of AI, and struggling to extend Moore's law into new computing paradigms. 25 years: Bioengineering and nano have created deeply integrated experiences between technology and the human mind. 50 years: Different beyond comprehension. Either a Transhuman utopia, or a crowded world with massive biosphere problems.
We are on the cusp of some massive society changing releases. Automated learning is sophisticated enough to threaten approximately a quarter of the worlds labor. A new economic paradigm should be considered.
I'm a trader, miner, and enthusiast, but believe the technology has potential to evolve into something much more comprehensive.
My ventures into simulation and complexity have made me seriously question the metaphysics of our universe... Read up on Bostrom and the Church-Turing-Deutch Principle. Politically, absolutely. Our representatives barely understand the technologies that our society functions on and make poor decisions based on a poorly constructed (for democracy) funding channel.
Total Recall is pretty awesome! (the original) And Abrahm's Star Trek is pretty fun to watch. 2014 seems like a good year for transhuman films though!
