Will 2016 be the year when the machines start taking over?
Exponential advances in technologies such as sensors, networks, artificial intelligence, and robotics are allowing us to think that we are at the dawn of an unprecedented revolution. The world as we know it is about to change drastically for better and worse.
This revolution will change the way we live, let us visit new worlds and lead us into a jobless future. The author points out to 6 technologies that will make it happen: artificial intelligence (you should see Her), robots (did you know cleaning a room and folding laundry necessitate software algorithms that are more complex than those to land a man on the moon?), self driving cars, virtual reality, Internet of Things, space.
Conclusion of the author : this surely is the most innovative period in human history, an era that will be remembered as the inflexion point in exponential technologies that made the impossible possible.
