The video is called “TRANSHUMAN: Quantum Computing to Grant Immortality by 2035″
I thought this video was satire at first, but they did give the conservative estimate of 2035 in reference to when the “singularity” is due to happen. I’ve heard as low as 2025, but for most of humanity’s sake, I hope it is closer to 2035 so that we have time to educate the public about what may be over the horizon.
I digress. As I said, at first I thought this video was satire, but I soon realized that the piece was based on an article in Time magazine (do they still call it Time magazine, even though most people read it online now? Anyway…) and that I had actually seen some footage on this quantum computing project already.
In the video, the “reporter” (Christopher Greene, creator of AMTV and video personality) is obviously not of the unbiased variety. While Greene drifted off into paranoid speculation toward the end of the video – somewhat reminiscent of Glenn Beck (shudder!) – I still wanted to post this video because many of the technologies he referred to are very much real today and it’s good to see how different people interpret these technologies. Whether I agree with Greene’s perspective or not, his fears about the future are going to be echoed in a lot of people in the coming years. My perspective is that we need to come up with ways to help people overcome their fear-based responses. There is nothing that can be done to halt the progress of technology, but we can influence it’s end use, but we can’t do that with lack of awareness and we can’t do that with fear. The future is coming, let’s get smart about it.
I would also like to mention that if this is your first time hearing of Ray Kurzweil, I highly recommend you take some time to familiarize yourself with his work. A good place to start would be his TED talk or check out his website at http://www.kurzweilai.net/, there are a lot of interesting articles over there, too (of course, I’ll be re-posting my favorites and the most interesting news stories here on Dawn of Giants as well.
Check out the video (or here is the link to the video on YouTube). I also posted the videos’ sources because some of them are worth a closer look.
One more thing; I’ve also posted the Time article entitled, “The Quantum Quest for a Revolutionary Computer” so check it out, too.
Thanks! – Eric P.
