Me On Future

Next Big Future’s Sander Olson interviewed me (short text here), and Ted Goertzel (Ben’s dad) had me give a guest lecture (1.5hr vid/slides here) for his Singularity Studies class at Rutgers.  I didn’t say anything new, but some may enjoy them.  Sander tried a bit too hard to quote me as forecasting big change soon; the vid gives a more accurate impression.

  • I liked and agreed with the horse vs car points.

    Living off interest seems likely to be an unrealistic strategy to me – at best this is based on some pretty extreme speculations about what the economy will look like. I think unemployed humans will mostly have to rely on government alms. They will be able to vote for these – but companies will be able to lobby against the associated taxation.

    Also, there’s quite a bit of talk about emulations – which still does not seem very realistic to me – I think emulations will come last.
