How will technology shape our future?
Humanity is on the verge of an incredible future. Technologies that seem like science fiction are already becoming science fact as researchers develop innovations that will transform the very essence of what it is to be human.
"The pace of change is exponential, not linear," says inventor, entrepreneur, author, and futurist Ray Kurzweil. "So things fifty years from now will be very different. That's pretty phenomenal. It took us fifteen years to sequence HIV, we sequenced SARS in 31 days."
(Ed.'s note: "Or rogue nanotech could endlessly self-replicate and smother the globe in 'grey goo'." Or, not. For budding journalists (and those simple willing to do their homework), I recommend reading Grey Goo is a Small Issue to get a better understanding of the issue prior to making statements of this sort. Here's a one-sentence summary "The idea that nanotechnology manufacturing systems could run amok is based on outdated information.")
