A video about how fast technological progress is going, how much technology has improved the world and the potential for technology to solve our most pressing challenges. Inspired in part by the book Abundance by Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler, and by the video "Shift Happens 3.0" (also known as "Did You Know") by Karl Fisch and Scott McLeod: www.youtube.com/watch?v=cL9Wu2kWwSY
Among the things mentioned are developments and possibilities within information technology, biotechnology, nanotechnology and artificial intelligence. The video also touches upon how several of these developments are exponential, but it does not get into the realm of technological singularity and the thoughts of people such as Ray Kurzweil, which is the topic of some of my other videos.
Information about the material I´ve used is coming soon! This video would not have been possible if it had not been for the people who have taken the pictures I´ve used in the video etc, and I thank those people!
