Ray Kurzweil's Exponential Computing Growth Predictions for the Next 25 Years

Ray Kurzweil's Exponential Computing Growth Predictions for the Next 25 Years | Financial, High Tech, Geopolitical and Environmental Threats | Scoop.it

Peter Diamandis launches a new book BOLD, one of the interviews that he is most excited about is with his friend Ray Kurzweil.

GeorgeGrant's insight:

Watching the latest presentation from Peter Diamandis about his new book "Bold" got me thinking about formulating my own "massively transformative purpose".  


There certainly a lot to consider here...


As Peter suggest: You need to consider - is your MTP an aspiration, does it inspire you, is it too narrow or technology-specific, is it aimed at your heart and mind, is it based on sincerity and confidence?


Anyway, I bought the book - I believe the exponential computing and related exponential technologies are going to be the most significant factors impacting humanity for the next 25 years.
