Are You Ready For The Technological Singularity?

We’ve got great news if you’re in love with your phone ― the technological singularity will happen sometime in the next thirty years . Futurist Ray Kurzweil believes that by 2029 computers will achieve human levels of intelligence. Which is no surprise considering computers can already do things greater than humans in certain areas . Kurzweil has a proven track record in predicting the future. It makes sense that humans will soon merge with technology but other thought leaders like Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking worry that merging with technology could threaten humanity

How Will Video Games Fare In The Age Of Trump?

Note: This entry is coauthored with Patrick Markey, Professor of Psychology at Villanova University and coauthor of our book Moral Combat: Why the War on Violent Video Games is Wrong . While the rest of the world agonizes over low-hanging fruit such as catastrophic climate change, whether Russia now runs the U.S., or if the liberal media is out to assassinate our president (figuratively one presumes), let’s turn our attention to the really important question of our age. What is going to happen with video games now that Trump is our president? Video games, especially violent ones, have long been a political whipping child whenever some perceived social ill needs a folk devil to blame on.

Will Smith Starring In ‘The Matrix’ Will Totally Melt Your Mind

The Unintended Consequences Of An Easy Life

A little while back, I wrote about Keynes’ prediction that our greatest challenge today would be what to do with all the leisure time we now have as a result of technology doing all the work that previously kept us occupied. My conclusion was – as you’re probably only too well aware – that this problem doesn’t seem to have materialized as we’ve just filled the time with even more work in pursuit of increased productivity, higher incomes and better standards of living.

What are the unintended consequences of technology making the little things in life easier and easier? My thinking on this was sparked by a fascinating depiction of a day of our lives in 2030 by Vodafone’s Head of Product Management, Sally Fuller .

If nothing else, Elon Musk, the mastermind behind Tesla Motors, SolarCity, and SpaceX, knows how to get attention. Recently, he made headlines when he revealed that next year SpaceX, the private space exploration company he founded in 2002, intends to fly two paying customers on a mission that would travel to the moon, orbit the moon without landing, and then return to land on Earth. A private space company has never sent a manned mission into space. The main reason is obvious. No private space company has the history needed to guarantee the safety of the passengers, whether they are astronauts or, in the case of SpaceX’s proposed mission, mega-wealthy customers
