Since the industrial revolution, we’ve extracted and processed colossal quantities of resources from our planet. We’ve produced a lot, and the amount of waste we’ve created (perpetuated by planned obsolescence) is staggering. Our linear economy takes from nature and makes for people, who use and then dispose. Consumerism keeps the economy ticking; but how long can we maintain this system? Enter the #CircularEconomy. #WickedProblem
There’s been a lot of interest recently by both private enterprise and public agencies, to colonize Mars and even terraform the planet. What do you think it would take to reshape a planet? To make one habitable?
If you liked building blocks as a child, you’ll love this. Imagine having the ability to create nearly anything from nearly nothing, atom up. Molecular Manufacturing may have been Sci-Fi so far, but it’s rapidly making headway.
For writers, content creators, producers or artists, it is vital to gain traction on the internet; to be visible and locatable.
Successfully controlling or instructing machines and computers, just by thinking the right commands is already in the realm of science (2015 DARPA BMI research). Imagine the advances we’ll see in a decade. Thought based communication? Multi-location existence? Or, the Matrix?
There may soon be a time, when evolved Quantum Computers clubbed with Artificial Intelligence (AI) programming would surpasses a human’s ability to think, process information and make consequence-based decisions. Where do you think this tech will take us?
If a computer can pass the Turing Test, is it smart enough to be called an AI?
Where are all the aliens, extraterrestrials and off world beings?
Water management through decentralization, harvesting, cleaning and ‘down-up distribution’. Survival on Earth, begins and ends with water, its usage and the responsibility of maintaining it as a resource available to all. Solving the problem of managing water, would be a starting point to getting around to all the other massively ‘wicked problems’ of the world.
What would a realistic timeline for directed human evolution be? What would the milestones be?
