Video: The Singularity Is Near

Ray Kurzweil is a futurist and a visionary. His theories on the role of technological advancement in the future span the fields of Artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and nano technology.  The commentary he suggests on these advancements entail the use of such technologies in multiple efforts to benefit mankind, from overcoming poverty by genetically creating new food resources, counteracting aging and disease by inserting chips smaller than our fingernails into our bodies to regenerate dying cells, and robots that will move and calculate things faster than us. Endless possibilities and new discoveries about the universe we live in. I look forward to the future and will do my best to live to 2100. Enjoy!

Video: Jacque Fresco on Larry King

Jacque Fresco is an inspirational man. He is very well spoken, and his words and ideas are very clear. To me, he is the definition of a natural leader, and how I wish every politician or person with power shares views like those of Mr. Fresco. The world would be a better place. “I believe they [people] can change quickly if the information is presented to them clearly.” I recommend watching this interview, especially if you are pursuing architecture and engineering or have an interest in these fields.

She is one hell of a courageous woman.Wonderful read!
