The future?

What means exponential

What means singularity

From my perspective, the Singularity has many faces. It represents the nearly vertical phase of exponential growth where the rate of growth is so extreme that technology appears to be growing at infinite speed. Of course, from a mathematical perspective, there is no discontinuity, no rupture, and the growth rates remain finite, albeit extraordinarily large. But from our currently limited perspective, this imminent event appears to be an acute and abrupt break in the continuity of progress. However, I emphasize the word “currently,” because one of the salient implications of the Singularity will be a change in the nature of our ability to understand. In other words, we will become vastly smarter as we merge with our technology.

3D printing

can we print food?

yes, but very expensive - for now

synthetic biology

biohacking

dna extraction, sequencing, analysis, bio-hacking spaces

DIY looking for drugs, solutions, customized for a person or small groups, for stuff not covered by Big Pharma

analyzing your genetic material costs now USD 1,000, 13 years ago it was USD 2.7 billion

genetic engineering

DNA sequencing moving to the cloud

'Singularity University wants to impact one billion people in ten years time'

energy

the real problem is storage

the importance of the grid
