Imagining the Future: The Transformation of Humanity | Peter Diamandis | TEDxLA

  • Published on Jan 16, 2017
  • In this landmark talk, Peter Diamandis shares how we are rapidly heading towards a human-scale transformation, the next evolutionary step into what he calls a “Meta-Intelligence,” a future in which we are all highly connected -- brain to brain via the cloud -- sharing thoughts, knowledge and actions.
    He highlights the 4 driving forces as well as the 4 steps that is transforming humanity.

    In 2014 Fortune Magazine named Peter Diamandis as one of the World’s 50 Greatest Leaders.

    Diamandis He is the Founder & Executive Chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation which leads the world in designing and operating large-scale incentive competitions. He is also the Co-Founder & Exec Chairman of Singularity University, a graduate-level Silicon Valley institution that counsels the world’s leaders on exponentially growing technologies.

    As an entrepreneur, Diamandis has started 17 companies. He is the Co-Founder and Vice-Chairman of Human Longevity Inc. (HLI), a genomics and cell therapy-based company focused on extending the healthy human lifespan, and Co-Founder and Co-Chairman of Planetary Resources, a company designing spacecraft to enable the detection and prospecting of asteroid for fuels and precious materials.

    Peter Diamandis earned degrees in Molecular Genetics and Aerospace Engineering from the MIT, and holds an M.D. from Harvard Medical School.

    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

      I have exact opposite outlook. This is the end. This is how we go out. When we become connected to the cloud. We disconnect from spirituality. We have different views on this one my friend. None the less. Very interesting

    The most important resource we have is not human intelligence, but Love. I know, sounds corny, but intelligence can serve madness just as readily as it can serve good. Human intelligence is but a tool to be used in service. Good talk, btw. I love this stuff.

    Also, Love also sees the power of accelerating returns. We use a higher level of consciousness to reach the next just as we use faster computers to create faster computers.

      @Dr. Zoidberg Interesting. The way I conceptualise it, Emotional Intelligence is no an aspect of intelligence, but another intelligence to what we usually think of as intelligence (which is reflected in and shaped by the way it was measured, which was very academic and functional/material).

      He was talking about human intelligence being more important than artificial intelligence, rather than intelligence compared to emotions. This is good since we want to make sure the dominant intelligence on the planet is value aligned with humanity. Rather than creating something that could easily destroy us, we can upgrade ourselves.

    I always adored you mr.Peter di amndis. This is for your practical optimism as to future of mankind. You are committed to the welfare of mankind. You speak of exponential rate of technological innovation. But let us not be happy with exponential rate of technological innovation lone. Let us at the same time be very cautious about the direction toward which this will take us to.

    We must have definite design for future civilization of mankind. And all our devotion be directed to achieve that in definite and anticipatory not. With my concern I am putting to you a proposition. Please be so kind as to consider the same. Because your consideration will Cary true value. This is Let us defend humane grace in automation:

    Autonomy of automation must not be allowed to go beyond humane level.

    Let us give serious emphasis on the innovation of method or technique or software development to ensure the same with true urgency and fastness. Let us make a definite design for future human civilization before it is too late. Otherwise, the grace of humane boundary will be recklessly broken by wrong choice of research objective.

    There is a scary part, where one might come to believe that being connected to everyone else might mean to become one with all others and become some sort of a single character or personality as in Star Trek where she says: I am The Borg.

    There is, however a difference between, on the one hand, transparently sharing all the information and then, on the other hand accessing some part of that data and processing it to recombine it into different conclusions or solutions.

    So, by the way, individuals process data, those individuals will exist.
    Maybe, that is not so new. After all, there are more couch potatoes than there are original thinkers.
    Only some are fortunate enough to stand out above the masses.

    The i7-6950X actually has not a clock frequency of 60GHz. There are no commercial general purpose CPUs at that clock speeds. But on the other hand it has 10 cores, 20 threads. So what he means is that 3GHz+ times 20 threads is comparable to a 60GHz CPU. That's not really true but considering the non-technical audience it is a rough guesstimate that can be accepted. Besides he's talking about other stuff, the i7 is there just to make an analogy.

    Not talking about Armageddon. End of the world. I’m talking about our
    Natural emotions and thinking and problem solving. We will control our happiness and sleep and energy like we control the volume on our phone. We don’t need to think anymore. We will be connected to cloud. We no longer put the same species. This is terrible. It’s unavoidable. And it is nothing to be excited about. When we finally

    Beyond the rapid advances in technology, it is our humanity itself that has yet to evolve. Our own viability as a species on planet earth today will require much greater levels of co-creative engagement than what our current forums for change will allow. Peter, your heart is in the right place, however, the solutions you are espousing are still landlocked within this current unsustainable paradigm.

    The idea that as we become more technical and able to produce more and more powerful and sophisticated machines etc. We are still humans who continue to operate out of fear and ignorance. If what he says is true we certainly should be a lot further today, instead we use the technology to further the destruction of lives very systems. There will always be humans who long for power and control. Why should we expect this change? Tools have always been used for good and bad, sometimes out of sheer ignorance,

    Per capita income is meaningless when half the worlds wealth is held by some 64 people. Global income was given a huge boost with what was deceptively "quantitative easing", ie. printing more money. Life expectancy increased dramatically into the 60's and 70's since then it has been flattening out. The same goes for food costs. What is not being talked about here is what industries call "externalities". These are the costs that industry avoids paying by shifting them on to consumers and governments. An example of this is the cost of pollution and the generation of enormous amounts of waste.

"... a child, the poorest child in Mumbai on a smartphone having access to the same knowledge and information that Larry Page has on Google". Poor children have no smartphones, or probably his definition greatly differs from the general definition. Thus it's a 'bad' example.

    It's an invigorating concept to have 8 billion minds on the internet, but universal Wifi still won't solve the infrastructural barriers preventing people from accessing the internet. How can the internet be used if you don't have access to an affordable computer? Or electricity to charge that computer? Yes, the humans are now an urban species with over 50% of people living in cities; however those unable to afford new technological inventions, those living in rural places, those displaced and all the others without access to computation devices for any number of reasons will still be left behind in this growing gap. Technological investment needs to be matched with infrastructural and developmental investment for this goal to be reached. Let's not forget the importance of equity and development in accomplishing these incredible goals.

    It is great that more people will have the ability to educated themselfes. Connecting to a device is not how evolution works, you are mistaking there. All the knowledge you speak of that everybody will have, does really everybody will have it or more like big companies and governments? Only the birdseye institutions will have this access and it will force an even greater inequality into being. Also to have a lot more gadgets and devices that are connected I do not see that as a positive. You can portrait something, as if it had no dark implementations, but that does not make it more true. I think those big companies and also the technologies will get their fair share of backlash that they deserve.

    for every stat we've gained, it forgets the humanity and species we've lost, millennials are a perfect example of the problem from instant gratifaction, facebook filtered fake friendships, and the addictedness is only getting worse with vr and ar. meanwhile nature doesn't stop moving, yet our food supply is mostly stationary, on a super complex processor of reality. I'm all for the bright and shiny future, but lets not forget the current world and reality with it's very real problems easily dismissed in chasing the moving mirage of shiny tech, any look at a person going through any gauntlet of western medicine. technology CAN only fix things but only that which gets back to fixing this reality will it survive.

      well it's part, millienas are messed up from messed up parents etc mostly enabled by technology. if you removed all tech in last 200 years would the social fabric of society be better or worse for the average human. And if we grant you your wish for every super computer in peoples heads will the human species positioning system still function to point to a sustainable healthy happy human world. Will transhumansits still be human and have empathy or disgust for the primitive others. We already see the impact of drone and addiction to media, and the prioritization of numbers over humans, when VR hits how will people know reality from fantasy.

    This guy is an optimist and not overly realistic. All of what he says sounds good in theory but the timeframe only takes into account all things going precisely to plan. How about delays, disruptions in this technology, funding, mistakes, other issues, whatever. You can plan & prepare as vigorously as you want, but just because you can't foresee a problem in the future, doesn't mean its not going to happen. Actually, generally you will run into issues you never predicted, espically over such a time span. A million things can and will go wrong between now and 2035. In my opinion, it is incredibly unlikely our brains will be utilized in this way by 2035. I could be wrong but it's just my feeling.

      As he said its based off things like Moores law which is not effected by interruption, which he also covered..
      Also mind you this does not even concluded projections form 3d chips, biological, quantum, etc.. Everyone and there mother was resistant about this being even remotely possible for 100s of years. Not only is everyone jumping on board now in the areas pushing these industries but they time frame is going down. The fault here is not understanding this line of thinking is linear.. Its going exponential, all of it.
      Also these are the people who have already been changing the world right under our noses. When this guys company alone (3 others also doing now) mine even a palm full off material from an Asteroid they will be the richest human in history. The other issue is if the world does not handle AI as one then whatever one person gets the lead will rule the world. We really are talking movie lvl stuff here.
      Musk is already talking about putting his vertical flight system on cars LOL. Just to do it.. He does not believe that flying cars are the answer atm.
      Like he say's people still ride horses. The rest will move on..
      Lastly with AI really being a thing these situation that could arise will either outright be the end of us or AI will find a way not only around but to even empower it in a positive manner. Exponential brainpower is not even swayed by such things.

    These inspirational videos for general audience are nothing more than bright fairy tales. Remember yourself 10-20 years ago - what have you thought or have been told the future would have been by now? I bet nothing like the world is today. The future will be... different. And we might not be ready for it.

      Some of what have been achieved today is beyond the imagination of the brightest fairy tales people could have dreamed up 20 years ago. The next 20 years will be even more exciting. Buckle up and don’t left behind !

      the rate of advancement in science/technology is staggering though, much faster than it was 20 years ago. The rate of advances in AI alone makes me shiver. Alpha Go Zero is crazy! Every year from here on out we will be hearing about mind blowing advances that sound like science fiction.

      In 15-20 years those mind blowing advances will be occurring on a monthly basis.

      20 years ago I was talking with colleges and we were fantasizing about having computers in our hands that we could use when dealing with people. Hospital routinely now use handheld computers when dealing with patients.
