Disruptive technologies

P2P Foundation, May 09, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

From the website: "In the first of a series of video interviews with high-tech experts, Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt explores the technologies likely to have the greatest disruptive impact on economies, business models, and people." Worth watching. Among the projections:

  • - biology goes digital (or as I would say: "in one word: carbon")
  • - materials and manufacturing (ultrapowerful, ultralight, ultraconductive materials, ie, more carbon)
  • - my computer, my friend ("there should not be a user interface; the information should just be around you.")
  • - man vs. machine ("the answer is better education")

If you don't like the slowness of video, you can also read an edited transcript of his comments.
