What do you get when you give a design tool a digital nervous system? Computers that improve our ability to think and imagine, and robotic systems that come up with (and build) radical new designs for bridges, cars, drones and much more -- all by themselves. Take a tour of the Augmented Age with futurist Maurice Conti and preview a time when robots and humans will work side-by-side to accomplish things neither could do alone.

"looks like the pelvis of a flying squirrel." And should we also believe that this guy looks like Elvis?

6:23 "At some point, AlphaGo's programmers didn't understand why AlphaGo was doing what it was doing."
Neither will computers know why humans strive for a spiritual goal, pray, or the real reason for saving kittens stuck in trees. I'd rather be human, thanks.

…time for AI to evaluate how to repurpose plastic waste, to the benefit of the earth, nature and mankind.

Tis a dangerous thing, When the plow, hammer, and saw crave equality……

Ai will never be advanced enough to understand a thick Scottish accent 😁

Roberto Kremer says:

Luckily the so-called AI we are capable to manufacture right now, is just a collection of smart algorithms created on conventional contemporary hardware. Any computer nowadays and in the foreseeable future is still running pre-programmed software and pre-programmed algorithms on conventional 2-dimensional silicon chips.
I would be concerned about 3 dimensional CPU configurations working with qbits or any real quantum computer (the things they call "quantum computer" nowadays are still a long long way from real quantum computers that run completely on the laws of quantum mechanics, something we work with in physics but still not yet fully understand).

There's nothing to fear from Cortana or Siri or Alexa folks…

what is up with the audio?!?!

Grendel _ says:

Computer solving climate change – that scenario will end up with the same solution every time – Thanos on steroids. There are too many of us, we consume and waste more than we can sustainably produce… Solution is brutally simple.

Marshall Brian says:

I wonder if I'm the only Black guy concerned about robots learning racism.

Alf Kyiv says:

Oh gosh, why he smacking all the time

Tony Giglio says:

Beautiful and inspiring speech!!!

ambkbero says:

The question is; "Why would I give up my free will and thought, just to be assimilated into a collective?"
I'm fine where I am, Thank you.
