When the World Is Wired: The Magic of the Internet of Everything

When the World Is Wired: The Magic of the Internet of Everything | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Unexpected convergent consequences: This is what happens when eight different exponential technologies all explode onto the scene at once.

An expert might be reasonably good at predicting the growth of a single exponential technology (e.g., the Internet of Things), but try to predict the future when the following eight technologies are all doubling, morphing and recombining. You have a very exciting (read: unpredictable) future.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Las convergencias tecnológicas nos van a llevar a un mundo difícil de predecir. Pero lo que es cierto es que cada uno de los profesionales del futuro que gestionen estas tecnologías deberán tener una formación mucho más integral y humanista que la actual. De otro modo, corremos el riesgo de que la tecnología nos termine gestionando a nosotros mismos.

Revisiting Vernor Vinge’s “predictions” for 2025

Revisiting Vernor Vinge’s “predictions” for 2025 | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

In his 2006 novel, Rainbows End, Vernor Vinge paints a world going through such singularity. It is in our near future too (2025). In this world, information technology has made such progress that anyone who hasn’t kept up-to-date for the last ten years, is hopelessly obsolete… as if, say, you tried to live in 2015 through the lens of someone from 1970. Any intellectual asleep from 1970 to today would need to go back to basic training… learn how to use a computer, maybe starting from a PC. This may require high-school-level retraining.

We could get to the Singularity in ten years

We could get to the Singularity in ten years | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
By extrapolating various key technology trends into the near future, in the context of the overall dramatic technological growth the human race has seen in the past centuries and millennia, it seems quite plausible that superintelligent artificial minds will be here much faster than most people think.

This sort of objective, extrapolative view of the future has its strengths, and is well worth pursuing. But I think it’s also valuable to take a more subjective and psychological view, and think about AGI and the Singularity in terms of the power of the human spirit — what we really want for ourselves, and what we can achieve if we really put our minds to it.
