The Third Industrial Revolution: A Radical New Sharing Economy
 
01:44:59
The global economy is in crisis. The exponential exhaustion of natural resources, declining productivity, slow growth, rising unemployment, and steep inequality, forces us to rethink our economic models. Where do we go from here? In this feature-length documentary, social and economic theorist Jeremy Rifkin lays out a road map to usher in a new economic system. A Third Industrial Revolution is unfolding with the convergence of three pivotal technologies: an ultra-fast 5G communication internet, a renewable energy internet, and a driverless mobility internet, all connected to the Internet of Things embedded across society and the environment. This 21st century smart digital infrastructure is giving rise to a radical new sharing economy that is transforming the way we manage, power and move economic life. But with climate change now ravaging the planet, it needs to happen fast. Change of this magnitude requires political will and a profound ideological shift.

Inside Story - Cashing in on the Bitcoin boom
 
25:01
Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe The value of the virtual currency Bitcoin has hit an all-time high. The financial crisis in Cyprus has driven many people to seek out alternative homes for their money. Some investors in the Mediterrranean island nation stand to lose up to 80 percent of their savings, as part of strict conditions attached to a $13bn bailout. And there are fears other countries could suffer the same fate, this situation shaking consumer confidence in traditional banks, and adding to a surge in trading in these so-called Bitcoins.

Neal Stephenson & Friends: "Hieroglyph" | Talks at Google
 
01:15:15
Neal Stephenson, Ed Finn, Keith Hjelmstad, Kathryn Cramer, Rudy Rucker, & Annalee Newitz came to Google to talk about project Hieroglyph. Inspiration is a small but essential part of innovation, and science fiction stories have been a seminal source of inspiration for innovators over many decades. In his article entitled “Innovation Starvation,” Neal Stephenson calls for a return to inspiration in contemporary science fiction. That call resonated with so many and so deeply that Project Hieroglyph was born shortly thereafter. The name of Project Hieroglyph comes from the notion that certain iconic inventions in science fiction stories serve as modern “hieroglyphs” – Arthur Clarke’s communications satellite, Robert Heinlein’s rocket ship that lands on its fins, Issac Asimov’s robot, and so on. Jim Karkanias of Microsoft Research described hieroglyphs as simple, recognizable symbols on whose significance everyone agrees. What science fiction stories—and the symbols that they engender—can do better than almost anything else is to provide not just an idea for some specific technical innovation, but also to supply a coherent picture of that innovation being integrated into a society, into an economy, and into people’s lives. Often, this is the missing element that scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and entrepreneurs need in order to actually take the first real steps towards realizing some novel idea.

Emily Drabant Conley on Singularity 1on1: We are at the infancy of a genomic revolution
 
44:51
https://www.singularityweblog.com/emily-drabant-conley-23andme/ It has been almost 5 years since I originally published my 23andMe DNA Test review where I concluded that it was right for me. I also asked you to seriously consider if it may or may not be right for you too. And so, if you still have not considered the risks, the benefits and the costs of doing a DNA test, then today’s episode is for you. I was very fortunate to get an interview with Emily Drabant Conley – research scientist and director of business development at 23andMe. And Dr. Conley was very forthcoming and generous in replying to and addressing a variety of issues related to genetic testing in general and 23andMe in particular. So check out the interview and consider how it may relate to or be useful for you. During our 45 min conversation with Emily Drabant Conley we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: her background in neuroscience and professional responsibilities at 23andMe (aff); her dream of personalized medicine; the types of information costs and benefits that 23andMe provides; the FDA “seize and desist letter”; how we get “accurate” and “actionable” DNA data; the choice to know or not to know your genes; privacy, hacking and who owns your genetic data; the benefits of full genome testing as well as a huge database system; accessing your raw data and 23andMe’s open API; reading, interpreting and eventually writing DNA…
