Future predictability
Projecting linear is going to be way too conservative - rate is accelerating - exponentially
Linear function on logarithmic graph - though each paradigm runs out of steam eventually - but another paradigm starts - of course, ultimate limit - still far away
Moore's law to molecular computing
Democratization of knowledge creation
Virtual attendance - going to virtual reality
Biotechnology revolution - turning off specific genes, enzymes - artificial red blood cell
Reverse engineering of the brain - will be a key towards AI - will succeed in modeling most regions in 20 years
bulk of human intelligence - pattern recognition - an example of self-organization
language translation will be a feature on the phone.
