With the keynote of Ray Kurzwell fresh in our mind: what do you think?
Personally I’ve heard the story about singularity, exponential growth, development in gene technology, it etc. before. Mainly by Yuri van Geest, a Singularity University alumni of which Ray Kurzweil is one of the founders. Yuri presents this case with much more excitement. But Ray’s point, of peoples brain not being able to grasp the implication of exponential growth is proven by the conference organizers (there are not alone in this) not being able to predict the required wifi capacity.
