From EO-1 to HAL 9000

Abstract:
Mike Treder: Will the earth ever possess intelligent beings far greater than today's humans? If so, will they be our companions, our conquerors -- or ourselves?

It's generally beyond the scope of this blog to speculate about the future further ahead than 20 or 30 years from now. By then, we expect that exponential general-purpose molecular manufacturing will have made such profound impacts on earth and on human society that much of it may be unrecognizable.
