TECHNOLOGICAL PROGRESS IS NOT JUST ABOUT DIGITISING TODAY'S PROCESSES. IT IS ABOUT ENTIRELY NEW POSSIBILITIES.
I like to ask big questions about the technologies that are shaping the future...
When satellites give us real time CCTV of the planet, how will we use that information?
Should autonomous vehicles already be on the roads? Even without full safety is it a moral hazard not to implement them if they prevent even a few road deaths?
What happens if quantum computers make computation a trillion times faster than today's fastest supercomputers?
How do we manage our global commons? Walls will not stop pandemics, climate impacts, migration, cyber attacks...
How will artificial superintelligence be used to diagnose disease, reduce energy consumption, power autonomous vehicles or optimise agriculture?
When will robots start to read our emotions?
How will we use genetic information to make business decisions?
The world is becoming a computer. A time machine we can search for insight. Discuss.
