There is a significant must-see video, attached, of a conference in which the focus was the future of business, technology, and economics, pertaining to science (atoms/bits) and new developments in mobility, the cloud's impending growth rate, and in-memory computing which will make quantum leaps in processing speed.
There was a panel of experts at the conference, including world-renowned, Theoretical
Physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku. As you may know, Dr. Kaku was AsianBoston Magazine's latest front cover story. http://www.asianboston. com/index.php?option=com_ content&view=article&id=455& Itemid=216
After I viewed this video, I was both in awe of the infinite possibilities, and also scared at the same time. Maybe because it's too infinite to grasp, especially if technology changes so fast that our minds will not comprehend the rapid changes.
It's like looking up at the night sky, as we all did at one time or another, and asking...where does space end, how did this all start; the world, human existence, why are we here, what is our purpose? These things are too vast to comprehend and to make sense of it in our minds, so we tend to not think too much on this because it only frustrates and puts one in a circle of thought.
I called a friend shortly after seeing the conference video and stated:
I think we will soon see the first super-human powered by Google.
Imagine somehow, Google technology is synchronized with a human, and at a thought, this super-human can access any data needed. Say for instance, the person never changed a spark-plug, but within a couple of seconds, can go over to a car and change it. Or, fix a fridge, perform triage on a wounded person, solve a complex math problem, order goods and services, assist on a spacecraft launch, or build a house, just from accessing Google via your thoughts.
Imagine, a person getting into a truck, like Arnold Schwarzenegger's
character in Terminator, and not knowing how to drive it, and like the Terminator, is able calculate the instructions 'by thought,' and then drive away.
Think about this...schools may no longer be a necessary step in education. Imagine, from child-birth, a baby learns by being placed daily into a Google learning capsule, just like the capsule Superman was placed in as a baby and sent into space by his father just before the destruction of their home planet; he ends up in the programmed destination called, Earth. Or perhaps, that will not even be needed. A baby can just be a baby until it's time, as a child, to be synced with Google.
What amazed me even more, was, in just a week after I spoke to my friend about this, I saw a commercial (On my honor, I was previously not aware of this commercial), and there is a guy placed in a futuristic chair. There is a phone on the center of a man’s chest as he is essentially injected with “Google” android DNA.
I have not seen it lately, and cannot find it online, but here is an indication of the commercial: http://vfntv.
The procedure is scarily similar to what I wrote here, and my jaw dropped when I saw this commercial...just a week after I talked to a friend about my thoughts on The First Super-Human Powered by Google...wow!
There is too much to think about with all the changes to come in science, technology, computing, business, and the world. It's a little scary, but, most changes will be for the betterment of business, society, and our planet...this is my hope.
Enjoy the videos!
