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

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.

How sophisticated do you think Machine Intelligence currently is?

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.

Do you participate in Cryptocurrency ventures?

I'm a trader, miner, and enthusiast, but believe the technology has potential to evolve into something much more comprehensive.

How does your futuristic perspective influence your political and religious preferences?

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.

What is your favorite futuristic movie?

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!
