Future Tech… From 2017

Self-driving cars, low cost genome sequencing, robotic surgery, free energy… ok, near free energy…  These are some of the topics discussed in this video compilation by Jonas Bjerg.  The video features clips from Peter Diamandis and Elon Musk and focuses on presently developing technologies and the near future plans to push these technologies to ubiquitous use with the promise of individual abundance.  I’ll leave it to you to consider the ramifications of a transition to a post scarcity economy, but I would like to note that many of these technologies, while potentially beneficial to humanity, are disruptive technologies.  There are currently test programs involving universal basic income (UBI, also mentioned in the video) and it appears we are on the threshold (within the next couple decades) of needing some form of UBI to support all but the most creative of individuals… then again, I’ve recently seen computer programs that might even call the need for creative individuals into question.  I imagine a time in the not so distant future when humans will need to “merge with the machines” as Ray Kurzweil says, or resign ourselves to primitivism or even obsolescence (to avoid the worst case Hollywood-esque scenario) while the posthumans do all the work above our pay grade (of course, one hopes pay is not a requirement for a prosperous life in the future).  It seems this scenario is a far future concept, however a look at the technology being implemented right now implies change is coming sooner than we might think.
