What you must know about the future
The video is about the exponential progression of information technology (exemplified by e.g. Moores Law), and how that in combination with more advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and the reverse-engineering of the human brain in the future could lead to a technological singularity, as theorized by people such as Ray Kurzweil. It discusses the development of technology as an evolutionary process, and shows by examples that evolution is an exponential process. The video also mentions how more advanced technology in the future could enable us to cure aging, and how this can give us eternal life (or at least enable us to live indefinitely), as proposed by people such as Abrey de Grey. The video also mentions the potential of molecular nanotechnology, and technologies such as virtual reality. It argues that investing in science and innovation is the best way of solving our challenges of global warming, resource scarcity, global poverty, and lack of space and resources due to population growth.
