Notations From the Grid (Special Mid-Week Edition): An Event to Check out

Please consider signing up for this event as it will quite insightful:

When I think of some of the most important and provocative questions facing us in the next 10 to 20 years, these are the 5 questions that come to mind:
  1. Can we extend the healthy human lifespan to 120? 150? Perhaps longer? What are the ethics of immortality? Will humans be immortal?
  2. When will we reach Human-Level Artificial Intelligence? Ray Kurzweil has been consistent in his prediction of 2029 (just 11 years from now). What are the implications to that development?
  3. When will we be able connect our brains to the cloud? How? Will we choose to do that?
  4. Will technology kill all jobs? What are the implications to technological unemployment?
  5. How do we raise and teach our kids during the era of exponential growth?
These are just some of the questions I’ll be discussing with Ray Kurzweil, my friend and Co-Founder of Singularity University this coming Friday at 12pm PST.
