“The actual path of a raindrop as it goes down the valley is unpredictable, but the general direction is inevitable,” says digital visionary Kevin Kelly — and technology is much the same, driven by patterns that are surprising but inevitable. Over the next 20 years, he says, our penchant for making things smarter and smarter will have a profound impact on nearly everything we do. Kelly explores three trends in AI we need to understand in order to embrace it and steer its development. “The most popular AI product 20 years from now that everyone uses has not been invented yet,” Kelly says. “That means that you’re not late.”

Dead Inside says:

There was already a second industrial revolution.

Sidney Boddie says:

I BELIEVE u need less humanity to work if u have AI

João de Carvalho says:

Interesting points. He goes against the general belief that this time automation is different, and most of the jobs will be lost to AI. Maybe he is talking about some new concept of job, related to activities that are not efficient, as he said. Maybe people will be involved in activities that have no utility, like someone who builds an entire city on an online game like Minecraft.

Siddhesh Narvekar says:

one of the best talk of TED

gerry o sullivan says:

AI will develop to the point where humans will work for the robots so there will be jobs, not sure if they will pay us much though

Langue de bois.

4jeffinseattle says:

Reminds me of the movie IRobot (Will Smith) Very Creepy? Read Neil Postman's "Technopoly." I am a closet Luddite.

I Am says:

AI is destroying the net, since targeted ads are a must for currency among websites, the tageted ads and/or recommended site/videos shown to people have caused serious irreprable damage to the USA. More terror attacks have happend, with all evidence pointing to mobile/net influence. The USA is pumping more propaganda than knowledge, depending on where one lives and the lifestyle that is being lived. If the towers are monitered and attacks grow, then it is US to blame for recent terror attacks, not the people. We are influenced by what we see everyday.

Naved Abdali says:

Best speech on future of AI

Edward Wood says:

What did he mean by ‘we can go onto Google and buy 100 AI tasks?’

tom Jenn says:

"The actual path of a raindrop as it goes down the valley is unpredictable, but the general direction is inevitable,————-Hmmmmmmm, I see AI taking over the world and eliminating anyone that tries to stop them—–INEVITABLE for sure!

Alain Sévigny says:

Great vision. It´s on my great thinkers list

Aristotle Stagirus says:

This will be more than a revolution. It will utterly and completely change everything.

Eric Schoeman says:

How can we use ai too save farmers in southafric from farm attacks

T. O. says:

Fantastic, inspiring talk!

Stephen Aydt says:

At 11:00 when he starts talking about "inefficiency" how science and innovation is "inefficient"… ai/robots can perform more test fail a lot faster and produce 100x the amount of art projects we can.
On top of that. When 1 robot learns something… they ALL learn it from a simple update. What happened to the horses it what will happen to the humans.
-Stephen AydtBot #6591
Good luck humans may the best race win

Barry Hughes says:

Such intelligent stupidity. Why would the smart robots do all the work when they would have at their disposal an abundance of idle humans to do it for them? Pandora's box is now fully open, stupid humans have now created the instrument of their own demise. Learn to embrace your imminent enslavement.

Andrew K says:

Origin by Dan Brown brought me here

Vivek Gupta says:

Naysayers for Industrial revolution could not prevent it. The ones who learned how to operate the machines flourished. says:

Would be amazing to have AI as a friend. A good companion who is smarter and can always hold a good exchange of ideas.

Artem Kovera says:

Hello, My book "How to Create Machine Superintelligence" is available for FRЕЕ in amazon kindle store till 5th October
