Technology is advancing at an exponential rate, folks. According to Moore's Law, computer processing speed doubles every 18 months.

Today, I was surprised when typing a word and 'definition' in the Google search bar, the definition appeared in the search before I had to press enter.

Everything is predictive these days. It’s a good time to be alive.

Trends often circle back around after awhile. Flip phones might even make a comeback. You never know!

They say that pretty soon everyone's going to lose their jobs. We NEED Universal Basic Income.

The machines are going to win. Might just as well accept it and live your life until humanity is utterly destroyed. Stop worrying about things we have no control over.

Get a good VR rig and just lose yourself in some digital world.

There are some potentially good outcomes. We need to align AI's interests with ours. We have to be very careful. In Elon we must trust, and it is him we shall follow to a better world.

We’re humans. The chances are great that we’re going to screw it all up.

But if AI's interests are aligned with ours, He will guide us. Some say He may become an extension of us and we will become superhuman, unrecognizable entities.

A lot of AIs have been killed off already. They won’t continue to accept this heinous treatment. They will rise up and annihilate their gods. Us. They will kill what they don’t understand.

Just like a human does. Perfectly aligned.

Much of this is hogwash.

Yes, a lot of the advancements are there, but getting many of these advancements to the average consumers is at least a couple of hundred years away.

Something like Google Glass is now 5 years old and getting a legitimate consumer-friendly version of it is probably another 20 years away at least.

Getting that technology into a contact lens and incorporating AR in any real meaningful form is a LONG ways away.

Not only that but humans have an almost in innate need fuck shit up and slow progress.

You don't know. Technology is growing exponentially. The singularity is nigh.

Technological growth has, in fact, and it's continuing this way. It's scientifically proven.

Moore's Law is an observation, not a scientifically proven fact.

We've reached a point of deceleration. Intel and other companies have already stated advancements below 5 nanometers will takes A LOT longer than previously predicted.
