You’ll live a lot longer than you think, thanks to the progress that medicine will make in your lifetime. And because progress is accelerating, you’ll see a lot more new things in the next decades than in your life to date.
Pedro Domingos takes you on a whirlwind tour of the new superpowers you’ll acquire, the technologies that will underpin them, and what you’ll do with them. Fasten your seatbelt – from controlling the world with your mind to editing your own genes, the next hundred years of your life are going to be a wild ride.

Pedro Domingos is Professor at University of Washington and the author of “The Master Algorithm”. He is a winner of the SIGKDD Innovation Award, the highest honor in data science. He is a Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, and has received a Fulbright Scholarship, a Sloan Fellowship, the National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award, and numerous best paper awards.

His research spans a wide variety of topics in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and data science, including scaling learning algorithms to big data, maximizing word of mouth in social networks, unifying logic and probability, and deep learning.

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



David Matthews says:

The problem with this way of thinking is that the tendency is to focus on what is theoretically possible, but not take into consideration the hard limits nature puts on things.

For example, the energy resources required for this new reality to actually happen would be… wow, possibly you'd have to use up every atom in the universe to power this vision😂

That said, I think many people will be startled at how much we can still accomplish, and yet, a lot of AI people will be disappointed at just how hard it will be to go too much further.

Because the physical limits and energy requirements aren't just hard to overcome, they may be dangerous, deadly, or just impossible to overcome.

You'll be accelerated and decelerated to meaningful fractions of the speed of light in 'subways' without being crushed by the increase in gforce.

I'm still waiting for all the stuff I was promised in the 80s, like a flying car and a casual trip to the moon.


Oh boy you are so optimist

Pako Diale says:

What's scary is that he's saying all this with a straight face

DarkNinja24 says:

Reminds me of something said in "21 Lessons in 21 Century", if the technology of controlling your own evolution becomes available but at an expensive cost, then different social classes may develop into different species.

BIt&binary says:

Unlike 🤧

Shane Martin says:

He is describing everything someone could want except the one thing no one wants to answer. How many people will be needed and how many people can this new world support?

Deep Learning Partnership says:

Pretty cool.

Muhammed Alghamdi says:

Very optimistic, did you consider the Trump factor ??

Binu Jasim says:

This is nuts. Let's see after 10 or 20 years! Mark 2027.

Gustavo Martinez says:

Pedro Domingos I don't know what is he talking about, but I'm certain that he really knows, one of the best books that I read.

Banura Rich says:

This guy should be writing science fiction movies not giving lectures about reality…

Deba Kumar Dutta says:

Whoa slow down world aint go that far in just decades

Debankan Das says:

this should happen for every human on earth.will it????

Joe York says:

Great presentation! Ah, to be human, more or less.

Ronan Dodd says:

I used to think that the need for energy was mankind's biggest problem. But I now believe it is finding the systems that will allow us the all share that is are greatest challenge.

Brian McNulty says:

I don't believe this because I just watched a futurism lecture from the 80's with Stephen Hawking and Carl Sagan and they didn't think we'd go beyond a few years from then. This is no different. Its just the same rehashed and failed predictions those in the past have so inaccurately foresaw.

Card & Code says:

I am gonna be the richest most powerful most athletic man with most interesting and focused man.The most genius man ever lived

Card & Code says:

I will change the world to make it better
