A perspective to positively impact humanity

I love this early video from skybox, there are so many attributes one can take from this kind of scene: time, location, distance, speed, volume, frequency and many more.

See the plane and the shadow you can get it's height.

I see a future where we can instantly get real-time imagery of any location in the world to aid our navigation, to inspire our city planning, to prevent chaos.
I'm starting to realise we need a better world for the future.

Skybox also realise this from their blog post on 23rd Oct 2014: "save lives, protect the environment, promote education, and positively impact humanity"

Technological singularity


On the debate of Technological singularity..

Well I expect the internet to collapse at some stage, albeit am not ready for that yet till I get my house, boat and able to be live self sufficient of external sources.

I think most people will start to upgrade themselves with implanted technology in 2-3 generations even simply to monitor their blood and prescribe medicine.

If an advanced AI became truly self aware then it would understand that its own existence was due technologicial advancements by the human.

A self aware AI could either see the human as a competing intelligence assistant. Or an assistant to its own evolution, or as no particular relevance as we regard ants.

Will we think of it as "human assisted AI" or "AI assisted human".

Many species coexist with each other for the very reason of coevolution.

e.g. Bumblebees pollinating flowers so both have become dependent on each other for survival. Or acacia ants and acacia trees, moths and orchids.

I hope for a symbiosis but caution that 'great potential' can go typically go good and bad. (Mostly good but with a few catastrophic failures along the way).
