Here is Something You Should See…


The Future Doesn’t Need You – How to Become Relevant when a Robot Takes Your Job
In this talk, Pablos dares you to imagine the possibilities in what once seemed impossible: a harmonious co-existence of humans and robots: Robots taking over your jobs and why they should; how this can trigger fear in humans and why it shouldn’t; redefining happiness; solving world problems like eliminating disease; a personal narrative of parenting that will bring you to your knees; and the responsibility of humans in all of this.

Pablos is one of the rare futurists actually implementing science fiction. His team at the Intellectual Ventures Lab is working with Nathan Myhrvold and Bill Gates to invent solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems.
For the first time ever, at TEDxLA, he shares his thoughts on the limits of what problems technology can help with, and what problems we still need humans to solve.

Pablos is a futurist, inventor, and notorious hacker.
He helped create the world’s smallest PC; 3D printers at Makerbot; & spaceships with Jeff Bezos. Currently, Pablos is working for Nathan Myhrvold at the Intellectual Ventures Laboratory inventing solutions to the world’s biggest problems

  1. ok i know this was a long time ago… but he did say the forbidden word: Safe. "It's a modern, "safe" rector…" tisk tisk. I'm not sure how to send him a product he himself called safe but … i bet if i did he would find a way to easily break it. xD

  2. What gives a tribal community from Ethiopia a sense of purpose? They live in extended families communities, they all work to survive and they share their food, care taking, wisdom, traditions and knowledge. Take away their ability to feed themselves through work by replacing it with robots and soon enough their existence becomes just as empty as that one in the west. Jobs are the only thing that is glueing western societies together. When robots replace us suicide will take care of that population hockey stick problem.

  3. Im already training my own neural network to recognize 20 000 pictures of my favourite game.. Ill make som networks to download millions of images and words from internet too:) it easy anyone can do it… then you can install it into a robot or whatever, and get a friend who knows all about your interests… Yes I do have friends but mostly they love stuff I dont care about

  4. When will we learn, when we try to fix what we already broke, we end up doing more damage. The Earth will heal itself, just not on our time scale. We've already created an "Age", lets just step back and quitely go extinct.

  5. Let me tell you how we will write the manual…. take the founding from people who work on killing bugs with lasers and build essential infrastructure (roads,houses, schools, electricity etc) for the poor people of this world.
