The Future of Collaboration
10 hi-tech inventions we'll be using in 2030 People have been trying to predict the future since Nostradamus was a lad. We’ve been promised flying cars, teleporters and jet packs for years but none of them – as yet – have made it to the high street. However, futurologist Ian Pearson has a list of 10 hi-tech innovations that he claims will be surefire hits by 2030. A smart yoghurt, anyone? 1.
Can you live forever? "Do You Want To Live Forever?" is a Channel 4 Documentary following the revolutionary life-extension and immortality ideas of this somewhat eccentric scientist, Dr. Aubrey de Grey. This show is all about the radical ideas of a Cambridge biomedical gerontologist called Aubrey de Grey who believes that, within the next 20-30 years, we could extend life indefinitely by addressing seven major factors in the aging process. He describes his work as Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence (SENS).

Shortly after, the human era will be ended.

Ramblings in Valve Time - September 7, 2012 by Michael Abrash If you’re not familiar with VR and AR, VR is the one where you sit down, put on a headset, and find yourself completely immersed in a virtual world like Snow Crash’s Metaverse or Ready Player One’s OASIS (and if you haven’t read Ready Player One, run don’t walk; it’s a great read, especially if you grew up in the 80’s, but even if not – I didn’t, and I still loved it). AR is the one where you... Read More... Singularity and Futurism: augmented reality

On the grand scale of things, we know so very little about the brain. Our thick-headedness isn’t quite cosmological in scale — we really do know almost nothing about the universe beyond Earth — but, when it comes down to it, the brain is virtually a black box. We know that stimuli goes in, usually through one of our senses, and motor neurons come out, but that’s about it. One thing you can do with a black box, however, is derive some semblance of a working model through brute force testing.
Wirehead hedonism versus paradise-engineering
The Hedonistic Imperative The Hedonistic Imperative outlines how genetic engineering and nanotechnology will abolish suffering in all sentient life. The abolitionist project is hugely ambitious but technically feasible. It is also instrumentally rational and morally urgent. The metabolic pathways of pain and malaise evolved because they served the fitness of our genes in the ancestral environment. They will be replaced by a different sort of neural architecture - a motivational system based on heritable gradients of bliss. States of sublime well-being are destined to become the genetically pre-programmed norm of mental health.
The Future of Health Care -- UHC TV uhc_video Good afternoon. In the next couple of minutes, I hope to make you wiser, and I hope to do this without teaching you anything. I am, however, going to ask a couple of questions, and this idea is not really a new one. In fact, it’s thousands of years old. There is a famous quote from Lao Tzu, a famous Chinese philosopher, who said to attain knowledge, add things every day.

Will robots get married?" You've known each another for many years now, and you've come to truly understand each another. You share a home, pay bills and putter around the garden together. The two of you look forward to your Sunday morning ritual of working on The New York Times crossword puzzle together.
Sex Robots: Prostitution As A Science, Not An Art We can relegate this one to the realm of science fiction for the moment, but two researchers from Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand suggest that in the near future, we could all be looking at a world where prostitution is largely the work of robotic sex companions. Their study, published in the May edition of Futures magazine, is called Robots, men and sex tourism. In their paper they imagine Amsterdam’s red light district in 2050, and say that it will be “all about android prostitues.” “[They] are clean of sexual transmitted infections (STIs), not smuggled in from Eastern Europe and forced into slavery, the city council will have direct control over android sex workers controlling prices, hours of operations and sexual services,” they say.
