BBC recently ran an excellent three-part series titled Visions of the Future. Futurist Dr Michio Kaku hosted the series and explores the cutting edge science of today, tomorrow, and beyond. Part one is titled The Intelligence Revolution and looks at what will happen when ubiquitous computing converges with the Internet.
In this century, we are going to make the historic transition from the ‘Age of Discovery’ to the ‘Age of Mastery’, a period in which we will move from being passive observers of nature to its active choreographers.
Ronan and I both share Michio’s worldview that humankind is at the beginning of the beginning of a major transition. Runtime of part one is 50 minutes. For those interested part two titled The Biotech Revolution and part three titled The Quantum Revolution are also recommended viewing.
