Your Life in 2027: A Look at the Future | Vivek Wadhwa (Full Video)
Every. Technology I look at is now, entering, this exponential, curve Ray Kurzweil says that, as any technology, becomes information. It starts advancing exponentially, it, seems that everything is being digitized, now and every, technology, I look at seems, to be entering this exponential curve and, what happens is that when technology. Is advancing on exponential curves they're doing amazing things but, when technologies. Converge, when, exponential, technologies, converge that's. When you get industry disruptions. Behind. Everything is computing, you. Know this device over here but. My estimate, is more. Powerful than 40 Cray supercomputers. Were remember Cray supercomputers, that that, were just a cost in the tens of millions of dollars that, had expert controls on them this is more powerful than those crazy supercomputers, well there's, something in computing called Moore's Law what, Moore's law stipulates is, that the processing, power of computers, doubles. Every year or two it's. Actually the number of transistors but what effect happens is that, the power increases, the, cost drops and this and the size becomes smaller this. Exponential, curve that computing is on means, that faster computers can design faster, computers, with. Faster computers you, can now design new, types of sensors, with. Faster computers you can now build artificial, intelligence, with, faster computers you can now analyze data like wooden egg you can never analyze before when, you have artificial, intelligence and, sensors, and robots. Coming together you, get. R2d2, from from, Star Wars you. Get these humanoid, robots, that can do what human beings can do you. Get the ability now to have robots, that can stock your shelves, that. Can operate machinery, that. Can be. Receptionists in your. Offices. So. You have multiple technologies, coming together which, which. Make it possible to do things that could never be done before if, you look at drones what, our drones we've had flying machines for a long time but. These flying machines we used to build these toys we build destroy helicopters, weren't, stable when. You added Adreno, chips to them when, you added computing, to them and you added a little bit of artifice to artificial intelligence to them so they could keep track of all the data around them you, had the ability to have these drones being stable, and now. Ship. Goods so. Drones are advancing, almost, exponentially, and those. Drones are going to disrupt. The entire logistics industry imagine, now being able to to. Have your mail being delivered to your mailbox using drone imagine. Having packages being delivered by, drone imagine. Having us, being. Delivered by drone I'm, not kidding look, at each eye and what they're doing in Dubai that's, really our drone on steroids, that's, being used to transport.
Human Beings so, every industry I look at I see as. Being. Ready for major, disruption, manufacturing, is going, to come back to United States in fact it is coming back to United States right now because, of robots they can do what human beings can do you. Have finance, that's about to be disrupted, because you have Robo. Advisors, you have digital currencies, you, now have data which canalize stock trades and so on all of these advances, happening we talk about to disrupt finance when. You look at transportation you. Have electric, cars which. Are becoming cheaper and cheaper because of the advances in battery technologies, you, have self-driving, technologies. Because of the advances in a I, imagine. Self-driving, electric cars that cost about fifteen or twenty thousand dollars in the year 2025, what, do you think is gonna happen to GM Ford. Toyota. All of these companies will still need one or two electric, companies but more, likely than not there will be some upstarts, from Silicon Valley or from New Delhi or from. South Paulo that put, the right technologies, together and that are inexpensive that start disrupting the entire transportation industry, soon, we're gonna have virtual reality that's going to disrupt education itself. Imagine. Mio to put glasses on and watch, me watch, this in three dimensions, and in, converse with me imagine. Being able to meet with people interactively. On the, moon on or on Mars or in Tahiti, that's. Going to disrupt the entire. Conferencing. Industry because, we'll be able to have meetings. In exotic. Places and it will feel like we're almost there, right. Education. Imagine. Being able to learn, science, by. By. Doing virtual. Experiments Anatomy, by seeing your human body inside and out imagine. Learning mathematics. By. Going, into ancient, Egypt, and building pyramids imagine. Learning Latin by, going back. In time. And talking to people in Latin I mean this is all becoming possible, and this is within five, years we'll, have them imagine having digital tutors, that. That monitor, your expressions, cameras. Can already do that and then monitor that with the child's, interest in learning if the child likes to play games he, plays games with them the, child likes to play to watch videos it, takes them into three-dimensional, holographic, worlds, and lets them experience.
You. Have experiences, and learn on their own if the, child likes, reading books, it reads books to them so we're talking about disrupting, education itself now, granted. That the, in, the Harvard's the Carnegie Mellon's you know the elite universities were sort of a brand name we still value them but, the world's masses, will be able to now get into holographic, worlds and learn. In many, new ways. Every. Single, industry, where technology, can be applied is about. To be disrupted, in in in a big way. Let's. Look at our own health. What's. Happening now is that we become data in our doctors of gaming software let, me explain, we wear Fitbit so we were all these you know devices, that monitor our body's functioning move, forward five years and we'll, have sensors, in our clothing. Imagine. That fruit of the Loom tag in your underwear which, is monitoring you 24/7, monitoring. Your activity, levels which is monitoring your EKG. Is you know all these these, different symptoms that can be captured from the skin imagine, it being gathered. 24/7, being uploaded to the cloud and having, an AI now analyzing, the data and say, look you're about to get sick you need to get some exercise, and. Then having all of these cameras, and sensors which watch what we eating and what we're doing and saying, all right Vivek you don't need that extra piece of pie stop abort abort abort. This. Is all becoming possible, and in, the next five years or so we should be able to build these technologies, so we have digital doctors, now. The second part of it genomics. In, the year 2000, there was a race between the US government and a scientist craig Venter to sequence a human genome the. Government, and affiliated labs spent two point seven five billion dollars Venter. Came up with a hundred million dollars don't ask how but. He took government, data. Any sequence a human genome it, made front-page news worldwide. For. A long time nothing happened, we thought genomics, was a waste, of money but. Over the last two or three years it's. Now gone at this exponential, curve there studies being published very. Frequently, now almost every week you're seeing groundbreaking, studies about. The discoveries. You. Know discoveries, in genomics. The correlations, between our health and our, genes, but. You know something what. Blows my mind the most is, the. Microbiome, when. You went to school. Your. Teacher your, biology teacher taught you that we made up of cells and the. Cells of a nucleus and that's where your DNA is do. You know something what, she taught you was wrong, we made up a bacteria, we, have somewhere between two, and ten times more bacteria in our body than, we have cells the, same technology. Which was sequence there used to sequence the human body and that's being used to sequence plants, has, been sequenced he's been used to sequence a bacteria. And our gut and for, the last few years they. Have been major breakthrough, than this now I have a Google Alert on the word microbiome, every. Day I read new studies new breakthroughs, happening, with the microbiome, it, seems that the, DNA, is important. And relevant but. We may be looking. Under the wrong lamp. Over here there are all sorts of studies which is showing that. It's. What we eat and, the. This. These trillions of bacteria that we have in our in our body the you know the amount that they, may be regulating, our health you know for example, they. Were study there was a study published in Nature magazine, about a year, and a half ago in, which they took the the feces if. I can say this on Big Think feces means shit. A. Fat. Mouse and gave it to a thin. Mouse and the thin Mouse gained weight they, took the feces from a thin Mouse and gave it to a fat Mouse and the fat Mouse lost weight now. The Chinese also replicated, some of these findings. In human, beings and they determined, that there's a correlation between obesity, and your, microbiome, so. Forget all these diets we've been obsessed with could, it simply be a matter of taking the feces. Of a thin, person and giving it to a fat person and the fat person loses weight.
Let's Watch the space over the next five years we'll, have scientific, evidence of this and also. Curing, disease they've. Been studies to show that Crohn's, disease which, which is a debilitating disease that children get they. Took the feces. Of a healthy child and gave it to an unhealthy child and, it appears that this unhealthy child, was cured. Your curing disease by transplanting. Bacteria. It doesn't make sense and then. Antibiotics. They've been several studies which, show that children. Who received antibiotics tend. To be obese it may, well be that. Antibiotics. Are killing off entire species the bacteria in our body and they're, making us sick you. Know this. Is a crazy prediction, and. But. I really believe this is going to happen that within 10 or 15 years we will, come to the conclusion that antibiotics. Were. Destroying. Our health it, may well be that we look at antibiotics, the same way we look at those leeches that, they use to suck out blood from. Patients in in in in England and you. Know the belief was that you could cure health by sucking out blood using leeches okay that, may be what antibiotics. Are. Doing to us. Still. Emerging. Technology, we, don't know yet but, when I read these studies every day that, is a conclusion I'm getting to that the entire Western, medical system is about, to be up ended. Through. The microbiome, so. Move. Forward to the 2020s. We have all of these diagnostic. Data we. Have all of these data about our, genome, and our microbiome, we. Have data, are not thousands. Of people but, hundreds and millions of people and we. Have AI that. Analyzes all of these information that. App on your smartphone that's monitoring you 24/7, maybe. The best doctor you've ever had it's your friend, it's your adviser it, guides you on how to maintain optimal, health and it, guides you on how to get. Healed if you do get sick this, is 510, maximum. 15 years from now I think closer to in, the five to ten you, know your period they will have all these amazing advances, so, this is exponential, it's incredible, it's amazing and. What. The future holds in health. If. You look at artificial intelligence, I know, when I was young I was reading about how AI would. Soon be able to defeat humans. At playing. Chess and everything else so all these predictions made in, the, 1960s, about, how a I would become smarter than man and then.
In The 1980s, in the 1990s. We heard about Japan, and their. Fifth generation project we. Sort of thought that Japan, would rule the world in in AI and. Then, what happened nothing. Happened, we. Basically had what was called the nuclei, winter, that. There. Was a cloud cast, over AI we thought it was a hoax it was a fraudulent, and AI. Was dead, AI. Isn't dead ai is everywhere, because here's, here's, what happened the scientists, also started speculating. On, a new method of doing AI the, AI that defeated, Garry Kasparov, big, blue was. Really a decision tree it, did if-then-else, statements, a very, possible, chess move and with, super fast computers, it was able to outsmart, a human being that's really you know simplifying, the technology, but that's more or less the AI we had a decade, of 15 years ago and. Scientists. Started speculated that maybe we. Could do a different form of AI we could mimic the human brain the, human brain has layers of neurons which. You. Know and the connections between the neurons are programmed based on what's learnt so a child sees a dog, and mom, says this is a doggy this is a cat and this and the neurons, are just some cells to to, associate, that that. Image of. You. Know an animal with ears, and a tail and, so on the shape with, the dog, so our brain programmed their self based on what it learns so. Scientists, speculated. They were papers published 30 years about this that we could do AI using, neural networks here's. What the problem was to. Do neural networks you needed massively, parallel computers. We. Didn't have those even. The fastest, supercomputers. Of their, time in the 1970s, and 1980s and, even 1990s. Couldn't. Do massively parallel computing. About. You, know decade, ago NVIDIA, and. I decided, to develop a chip, to. Let children play video. Games better the, GPU, in the graphic processing unit. And. They, released it a few years ago it became a big success and then, scientists, started looking at that GPU, and realized that that's a massively parallel computer, why, can't we now do. AI with it so, I started doing it and machine. Learning developed. There are many words over here but essentially we, started mimicking, the human brain and using these these, you, know these, GPUs. To. Learn the way human beings do that's when you started having Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking and a bunch of others talking about artificial. General intelligence saying, oh my god these things they're gonna be smarter than us and all, of these dangers the. Trouble was that that was the stuff of science fiction and this was narrow AI where you specifically. Taught a computer, what to learn you developed a model and then, you threw data at it and it learned from that so, we assumed, that you. Know this AGI. Was 20-30 years away here's, what happened in the last couple of weeks with narrow, you. Know narrow, AI that. A, a bunch, of scientists, figured. Out how to defeat CAPTCHA, by. Having, the computer learn itself it did experiments, it really tried every combination, figured, it out and then Google was able to to. Have, alpha comb which is you know defeat these, go players it, learned. On its own so, it seems like narrow, AI, is, running, on its own now you can throw anything you want at it you, take that one step further and you, say okay I can learn anything it wants to learn and you.
Begin To see artificial, general artificial, general intelligence the. Stuff out of science fiction becoming, possible, so. This is all happening a lot faster than anyone. Anyone, imagined I mean maybe there's some people who saw it coming but, the, vast majority of experts. In this field didn't. Think that AI would progress at the rate it's progressed, just, over the last few weeks and it, could well be that we get our two day to remember. Star Wars Rosie. From the Jetsons, Samantha. From her all of these things we saw in science fiction that they start showing up in our, apps and, in these BOTS we have at home in the next seven to ten years. So, me I won't be surprised if I'm able to order Rosie, on amazon.com. In, the year 2025. 2027. And she's droned over to my house and Rosie, cost about $10,000 because that is how AI and, robotics, and, whole bunch of other technologies, are advancing. Exponentially. Ever. Since the internet came out we've started ordering things on the internet with. The first one that some of the earliest websites were. These, these. Websites, these retailing websites, where you could buy. Oddities. On the on the internet and then we could buy clothing on the Internet and then you could buy shoes on the Internet and now, Amazon has become a dominant player because. Practically, everything you need can be ordered on the internet and it comes to your house often, within an hour or so so, that was. Retail. Disruption, 101, now, something even more dramatic is happening, that. The retail store itself is becoming digitized, when. You walk into your. Supermarket, when you walk into any retail store you, know that their cameras, over there you. Know over the last two years or so the. Ability for for. Computers. To recognize, faces. Exceeded. The ability of human beings to recognize, faces so. Those cameras, now have. The ability to know, who you are, and. They. Have the ability now to just, do. Interface. With the registers, where you buy things and to, keep track over here but you're bought give. It five or ten years and you'll be walking up to the counters, and you'll, have you, know you'll have, ads being served to you based. On your buying habits and based on your interests so, the entire retail, experience, begins to change because you, have customized, coupons customized, ads all being, selves, to you as you walk in there but then, also the.
Sensors I talked about the cameras they, can also detect inventory, they can see what's on the shelves how much of it has been solved you. Know until today we've, had human beings going and doing inventory, checks every. Two or three days they go and see what needs to be stacked, and so on but. With these cameras. They, can keep track of what's on the shelves and they can automatically, order a new. You know replenishments. As needed and then when have robots, they can go and replenish, the cell shelves, rather than human beings going in and stacking you, know our sale boxes, imagine, you had robots that can do that already. The number of robotic technologies, that can they can go in and and do this thing but give, it five or seven years we'll have robots replenishing. Shelves, we'll have, sensors. And AI monitoring, inventory, move. Forward a couple of years virtual. Ready is going to become much more powerful imagine. Wearing eyeglasses, that, turn dark and take you into holographic, worlds imagine. Now being able to to, meet people wherever you want to and being, able to converse with them as if you were there. Imagine. Now being able to go into a store and now, pick, and choose what you want from it being able to examine the, merchandise and just say okay I'll take it and imagine. Having it drawn over to your house. Let. Me switch gears now and talk about saving. The world because. I live in Silicon Valley and, frankly. I get depressed, at the fact that they're tens of billions of dollars being thrown at mindless. Apps they. What happens is if some kid comes, up with some new stupid, app and he. Gets you know 100 meant all the funding and other VCS give throw, another hundred million dollars. Competitors. I did, you. Know we're basically chasing, rainbows in. Silicon, Valley and, not, understanding, the problems of the world I was. Born in India I traveled. The world and. When. I go there I see poverty I see despair, I see. You. Know people living in ill health I see hunger, I see, disease I see, you. Know, majority. I see people getting sick because of bad water and, it's. Depressing to see that we living in Silicon Valley we're blessed living. In New York City you're blessed because you have everything you need we, don't we know we see poverty and we ignore it but by, and large we're, not sensitive to the needs of the world you. Travel to the developing world you see the the, dire poverty and the pain and suffering but, you know something I believed. In the next 10 or 15 years we can solve virtually, all, of these problems that are there are. You know hurting people so much the, the biggest problem is energy when. People in remote, parts of India Africa. South. America, come. Home they. Can't study because they don't have light, this. Is something we can't comprehend, in America that you don't have light you can't study there for children don't get education, but, this is a common problem in the developing world, 88%, of the infectious disease in the developing world is caused by water borne viruses, you. Know when you went to school you learnt how, to distill water what do you do you boil it you capture the condensation, and that's, the distilled water distilled. Water is 100 percent pure there's nothing living in it right, now, all, it takes to, have 100 percent clean water to boil the oceans and have all the water we need is, energy, the.
Trouble Is that energy has been so expensive, well. Guess what that's. Changing, we're. Headed into an era of, unlimited. Clean, and almost. Free, energy. Here's. What's happening solar. Wind. Takes solar as an example the. Cost of solar has dropped 99%. Since 1976, and what, happens is it as the, price drops the. Installation of installations, doubled as the, installations doubled the price drops were in a virtuous, cycle, over here of of. Exponential. Technology. Advances, at, the pace we're going we're only about six doublings away from. Having the capability, of generating 100 percent, of the Earth's energy needs through solar, this. Sounds crazy and the, doublings are happening less than every two years from now so. What I'm saying is that by 2030, or so. We. Could have, unlimited. Clean, energy on this planet from, sunlight and the. Cost will, be a fraction. Of what it is today imagine 1/16. Of what it is today one. Thirtieth of what it is today you know in less than 15 years from now this, seems crazy this seems unimaginable but. All you have to do is look at the data look at the trend it is as clear, as can be now. In America we're regressing because, you now have the, US government, and when I say US government I mean Donald Trump talking, about bringing coal back he's. Talking about stopping, the progress of solar energy because it disrupts the USA unemployment, this is complete nonsense, I mean solar is generating more jobs than, coal, ever had and this. Is good for America it's good for the world but regardless, leave. America aside America. Is not relevant anymore the, really good news over here is that America, isn't leading the world anymore it's, China number one they. Have committed to I think 200, gigawatts in. The next five or seven years in India, number two they talk about 100 gigawatts we're talking about you. Know the, two largest population, countries in the world now leading the path, on solar and, even if America decides to bring cold back and set up coal-fired plants, it doesn't matter the world world will simply laugh at us the, cost of solar will still, advance and the. Beauty of this is that every, village in the world will now have light now. The the. Challenge over here is that you need to store the energy because, it doesn't the Sun doesn't shine when, it's not sunny the, wind doesn't blow and it's not windy but, the good thing is that the cost of storage is also dropping exponentially, we, should talk about three.
Four Five hundred or the kilowatt hour for storage, Elon. Musk is hinting at $100 a kilowatt hour in, the next three or four years and. It, could go to $70, a kilowatt hour when you talk about prices such as that you're, talking about self-driving, electric, cars called a costing about, fifteen twenty thousand dollars being able to drive 200 miles by. The mid-2020s. 2025. We could have cars, that cost fifteen thousand dollars and go you, know 100 200 miles. We're. Talking about now having enough storage for a village for. A couple of thousand dollars so. Which means that you could have entire village as the entire towns all. Over the world which, are off the grid and have, unlimited clean, energy so. Now we can, have unlimited clean, water because, we could just boil the oceans we. Can now have lights. The children can come home and study and. We. Can educate them because they'll also have smart phones that, provide, them with knowledge we. Can now have, diagnostic. Devices which. Provide, them with information, so that they can get in their smartphone, and get health, they. Can grow. Have vertical, farms this is another amazing technology, that, we don't talk very much about in the United States but vertical, farming is now, advancing, exponentially, because, of two or three different convergence. First, of all LED, lighting we, don't have to understand that LED lighting now has. Become cost. About the same as as these, old bulbs we had the Edison bulbs in the developing was there even cheaper and LED. Lighting there, was a nobel prize two years ago for LED lighting they've been such amazing. Breakthroughs, in LED lighting so, that you can now turn. The. Frequencies. To the growth of plants so. You can now have, inexpensive. Energy LED. Lights and now, you can also have sensor. Sentiment, sensors cameras, and other devices which may monitor crop growth, which. Monitor, the growth of every plant give, them exactly, the right nutrients.
Glasshouses. So we're talking about organic food we. Will be able to grow almost, unlimited, food, because. Of these advances, in energy LED. Lighting ai and, sensors. That's. In the next five or ten years so. We could literally, have, a planet, that's abundant, in energy. In food, that, has perfect health in which, we can 3d print our own clothing all, of these things are within. Reach. Now. They make it to the dark side of all this you know I talked about the, advances in AI and robotics in, sensors, industry. Disruptions. Despite. What, the, optimists. Say despite, what Silicon Valley says I don't. See a scenario, in, which we, will have enough jobs for human beings that. Yes, it'll be new jobs created, zumba. Dancers, and God knows what else what is these, stupid examples, that Tech. Boggles throw up about the new jobs that we created the, fact is that these uber drivers, these taxi drivers in New York City the, even, the uber drivers that we have here now when. They Jobs get displaced they. Aren't going to be new jobs for them the truck drivers talking, about 3 million truck drivers this in the United States when. We have self-driving trucks which, is very likely in the next five years or so. Those. Middle-aged, truck drivers, who, don't have other skills than driving are not, going to be able to learn how to program robots or. How to do is Zumba dancing, those. Truck drivers will be on employed we're. Talking about people, whose livelihood depends, on jobs whose. Social stature depends, on jobs I mean, you know think, about it when we meet each other the almost. The first question we ask is what do you do we. Defined by our jobs, and we. Take pride and creativity in our work and our. Lives revolve, around our work what. Happens when the work disappears, even. If you have, all. The energy you want all the food you want you. Have perfect, health you have all the things you need you able to 3d print you your, food and clothing and all that if you have all of these things taken care of you. Have nothing to do. You. Feel depressed, what's. The new social structure over here what do we do with ourselves so. Silicon Valley talks about universal basic income that's. The excuse for, saying it's someone else's problem it'll, be okay let us get filthy rich, and let. Someone else worry about the problem we can just give money to everyone no. People just don't want money people want a purpose, in life they. Want to be contributing, to society, they want to be doing good they want to be be. Earning. Their keep they, don't want free money next. You, know 10 15 years I worry. About Amy even as soon as five years I worry about millions. Of people ten tens of millions of people becoming unemployed becoming. Depressed and. Really. Rebelling. That you. Know go back to the Luddite movements who tried to stop the progress of Technology because, their livelihoods were being taken away I worry. About this dark scenario I worry, about them. Wanted to burn down the tech. Companies, and to. Stop progress at all costs because their jobs are being taken away strikes. Just like you had strikes in Paris texts, in your taxi drivers trying. To burn down lubbers I'm exaggerating a little bit but it's going to stop Uber's you, may have that in New York City you, may have people, whose lives have been you know displaced, you. Met people who have, lost their livelihood is now getting. Angrier, and protesting. Look, at what's happening do you see we, have a government that's pandering, to the, extremist, groups to the anger right. I mean it was unimaginable, even. Two years ago that, we would be accusing, the White House of being. Nazi. Sympathizers, I mean, this is crazy, I mean the allegations, are not founded, but the fact that we can even make those allegations, shows. That something is wrong over here that. The. The, the, gap between the haves and the have-nots, has. Grown not, only in money which is obviously talked about before but also, in knowledge in culture.
In Values. We. Take not be this, a technology, literate that, you get your information online you, watch videos such as this and, you stay up to date with this the, people in Middle America the. Truck drivers the taxi drivers many. Of them don't watch this and they're. Not up to date we're, doing nothing to mitigate, the. The gap there. Are policy makers are talking about taking. Things away taking. Healthcare away from people taking benefits, away from people they're, not talking about how. Do we now uplift, all the mankind, they. Think we have limited resources and, they're favored we have to ration, them but. They don't simply realize that we herded ed into an era of abundance in which we can now distribute, the prosperity we're creating and uplift all of mankind. In. My, book the driver in the driverless car I try. To look at technology through. Three. Lenses and. The. Purpose of this was to figure. Out how we can create the amazing future of Star Trek versus. The. Darkness. Of Mad Max the. Three lenses are number one there's. A technology of the potential to benefit everyone equally, can. We make sure that everyone gets good healthcare from it can we make sure that everyone gets clean energy from it can we make sure that everyone, benefits from the technology, so that we don't have people being left out and we don't have anger brewing you know go back to movies, such as War, of the Worlds go. Back to a lot of these science fiction horror, movies in, these movies the, rich had access. To better technology, that they had health they, had you, know all sorts of good things the, poor had nothing they were working in the mines the. Outcome was, always the same in all of these movies that the poor, ended up killing the rich. Mad. Max that. The anger started, brewing and, rebellion. Started and the. Focus was to destroy, technology, to you know to to kill the rich basically, this is what happens in all of these dark movies if we don't now start. Educating and uplifting everyone we're, gonna have Mad Max the, second lens is do, the rewards outweigh the risks is this technology going to benefit us or is it going to hurt us we, have to look at every technology to make sure that. The rewards outweigh the risks you, know for example gene, editing CRISPR, we, now have the ability to alter life itself, in, about a decade from now we. Will have the ability to select the. The. The. Features that our children have this. Sounds crazy but, we may be able to take pills that, alter, the genome, of an. Embryo and, give. Them new characteristics. Remember to remove, disease and to give them maybe extra IQ this, is all becoming possible, now, the question if you do that do, not create the the. World of Gattaca that movie Gattaca in, which you had you. Know people who were who were enhanced, and then you had people who weren't enhanced, and the people who were in now said a special place in society and guess. What the people who weren't enhanced, rebelled are, we now creating, super human beings are we now creating killer viruses, are, we now creating, massive, joblessness, are we now creating all of these new nightmares, with technologies, do, the rewards truly outweigh the risks and then. The, question is there's, a technology great autonomy, of our dependence I mean, I'm a big fan of self-driving cars that I Drive a Tesla Model S and I, can't wait to get into Auto Drive when. I get on the highway because, I want the car to drive itself, now. Eventually when, I say eventually probably 10 15 years from now we're. Gonna be deciding, that we don't want these dangerous, human beings on the road these. Human beings get. Distracted they text while they're driving they, get angry they get road rage they. Rush into traffic at the same time they, crash into each other they're. Dangerous we don't want these dangerous animals on our roads instead. We want to have smart. AI. And. Robots, doing the driving so, we may throw the human beings off the road which. Means that we've lost autonomy. Right. We, get angry, gone, are the tales of driving so on the one hand self-driving, cars, give. Us a tana me why.
Autonomy, Because everyone. Now can get from it any way they want to be to be where they want to be, safely, mothers. Can send their children to school knowing that they'll safely arrive there the. People they're blind the people who are handicapped, the old don't. Have to worry about you. Know having to drive anymore we. Have autonomy. Like we've never had before because. Of self-driving cars but, then we lose another autonomy, that autonomy, is the right of being, able to drive on our highways, so. You have a trade-off over here the, question is does it lead to does technology lead to dependence or autonomy, in the case of self-driving cars it's both dependence, and autonomy. At the same time but. We got to figure this out we've got to figure out what. The trade-offs are so. What I posit, in driving, the driverless car is that, we have to look at each technology technology. Through. This you. Know these three lenses and what, I believe what I sincerely believe is, that, if we get these right, that. If we now benefit, everyone and we do things in a sensible way we. Can create the amazing future, of Star Trek that. We really can get to this world. In, which we're now, sharing, prosperity, with, seeking enlightenment and knowledge we're. Working to uplift humanity and. We can do this 300 years at a schedule. You.
