Future Technology and Innovative Concept Topics and Ideas for Think Tanks and Radio

Greetings and welcome my radio listening viewers and on-line article readers. On this 19th day of October 2012 we'll after all be discussing future know-how, future improvements, and futuristic ideas. Certainly, I certainly hope the Mayan calendar was improper, or maybe these carving it merely ran out of stone merely, ran out of rock to chisel on, subsequently the world will likely be saved from no matter it was that the Mayans thought may convey a couple of new age or renewal.

Okay so, I might wish to dive into our subjects for at the moment's radio speak present and I am positive by now you perceive the format, principally, "I'll do the speaking for about 30 minutes minus commercials and your job is to pay attention rigorously, give you feedback and questions, after which I will open up the cellphone strains to listen to what you need to say." As you additionally most likely know I don't reply to on-line feedback which aren't intellectually based mostly. That does not imply you may't have an opinion, nor does it imply that it must be the identical as mine. Actually, in the event you do an excessive amount of preaching to the choir, I'll merely minimize you off, maybe agree with you, and go to the following caller.

Our job is to have an mental dialogue, dialogue, debate and discourse. That is why you are right here, and that is my mission, and we'll full it. Now then, clearly there's a large quantity of discuss innovation, the necessity for innovators and entrepreneurs in our nation to maintain us robust, vibrant, and on the vanguard of know-how. You will not get any disagreement right here on that actuality, however it appears as if the phrase "innovation" is maybe one of the overused phrases within the English language presently, maybe apart from "unsustainable" which by the best way, some issues which can look like unsustainable or dire issues we consider we face at the moment, however might very effectively be solved with the know-how of the longer term.

Einstein used to say that; "it takes a superb individual to resolve an issue, nevertheless it takes a inventive genius to stop the issue from ever occurring first place," and subsequently, I'd say that the inventive geniuses do not all the time get the credit score for fixing the issues, however the sensible individual will, even when their earlier options became unintended penalties, and they're rehired to repair what they broke the primary time after supposedly fixing one thing to avoid wasting us all.

Okay so, right here is the place I will begin throwing out subjects, with somewhat dialogue hooked up to every one. They'll run the gamut all throughout the board from science fiction subjects to at the moment's newest and best applied sciences and what they may imply for our future. I will even throw out some private authentic revolutionary ideas, as I give you a minimum of two new authentic ideas per day, and we will focus on these as effectively if you want, or maybe you'll have a distinct subject for our dialogue right here. Now then let's start with the primary subject;

1.) Will Bodily Cash Survive the Subsequent Three Many years - Hackers and Commerce Questioned

In actuality, cash has little or no worth - take into account a greenback invoice, it is only a flimsy piece of paper, so how a lot is it actually price? All of us consider it's price no matter it says on the face of it whether or not or not it's one greenback, 5 {dollars}, $10, $20, $50, or perhaps a C-note. Cash solely works as a result of individuals think about its worth, and what it may purchase. Many of the cash which is created today by no means really exists in a bodily kind, it solely exists within the digital world. As an illustration, you may receives a commission from a Company, that cash could possibly be digitally transferred into your checking account. You may then use your ATM to purchase one thing, or pay payments on-line, however you by no means had that cash in your scorching little palms. Issues have modified loads within the final three a long time have not they?

So what is going to occur in one other three a long time I ask? Will we nonetheless have bodily cash, or will all of it be digitized, and can you ever have any cash in your pockets to purchase one thing? There are some futurists that consider that cash will exit the window, that's to say bodily cash, and every little thing will likely be digital sooner or later. However what if our society and civilization would not belief digital cash? What if they're frightened that our banks are being hacked? Lately within the fall of 2012 we have famous that our banks have come underneath cyber-attacks from Iran a minimum of Leon Panetta believes that is the place the assaults originated, however who's to say sooner or later if we've got a battle with one other nation that cyber-attacks on our financial system won't be included?

In any case, financial warfare is turning into fairly frequent, why simply take into account the sanctions, commerce wars, and our makes an attempt to cease the cash move from terrorists, drug sellers, cash launderers, and human traffickers, together with the central banking laptop methods of rogue nation-states and their cash transfers for issues like oil, pure assets, and army armament?

Then there's the difficulty presently the place increasingly more persons are making cellular funds on their cellular private tech gadgets. At present they're shopping for a cup of espresso, a hamburger, or varied gadgets at retail shops. Sooner or later it is perhaps way more, or if that turns into unreliable or these private tech gadgets are being hacked, maybe by downloaded apps with malware, or from customers browsing web sites with malware, then individuals won't belief cellular funds. Some have prompt that some private tech gadgets may very well include pre-loaded back-doors or software program that could possibly be utilized by hackers to steal information or commit identification theft crimes.

There might come a time the place individuals do not want to purchase something on-line, or do on-line banking as a result of they do not belief the system, they do not need their cash to vanish someday into another person's account in some overseas nation. Having somebody drain your checking account solely must occur as soon as, and solely must occur to an in depth buddy or a member of the family earlier than everybody they know turns into sketchy. In that case you will not wish to use digital cash, and that case extra individuals will choose to make use of bodily cash, subsequently it's fairly doable that bodily cash will exist merely as a security issue for many years to come back.

However how secure is your bodily cash going to be in case of a pure catastrophe, or a wildfire that burned down your own home, or an earthquake? What a couple of hurricane with an enormous tidal surge, a tsunami, or a significant river which jumped its banks? Is your bodily cash secure, how a lot safer is it that your digital cash in that case? Talking of pure disasters and flooding occasions, perhaps we will higher predict them sooner or later? Let's discuss that for a second with our subsequent subject;

2.) We Want A Actual Check for 100-Yr Flood Mathematical Simulations - A Thought

How can we higher produce mathematical simulations for flood zones, or the proverbial hundred 12 months flood? What can we do to higher fine-tune these mathematical fashions in order that they're utterly correct? A number of work has been performed previously based mostly on elevation, and flood mapping. However there's extra to it than that, there are all kinds of different issues to contemplate together with erosion patterns. Let me provide you with a thought right here?

We all know the dates, temperatures, rain fall, and run-off proper, we all know historical past, plus we measured the terrain earlier than and after proper? Thus, any actually good mathematical simulation for erosion ought to look the identical because the precise in the event you enter the best way the terrain as soon as was with the interim circumstances to what it's now. See that time.

There's a very fascinating YouTube Video I like to recommend viewing on this subject, effectively a aspect subject, that of agricultural high soil erosion; "Dave Montgomery - Dust: The Erosion of Civilizations," now then, let me categorical my ideas on this as, all of those theories and hypothesis make a number of sense with limitless examples within the current interval on smaller scales - frequent sense, observable, and thus it is smart, so then, Occam's Razor survives.

So, my hypothesis of Dave Montgomery's lecture and concept could be the identical. Certainly, this was an important lecture, strong proof, and analysis. Okay so, now we will now put forth these findings to assist calibrate mathematic soil erosion fashions and simulations. Now then let me ask one other query, or maybe the identical query a distinct method;

3.) Can We Use Mathematic Fractal Simulation to Idiot A Human When Viewing Erosion Patterns?

In that case, would that be just like the Turing Check? And if that's the case, can I name that the Digital Actuality Winslow Check, named after me for contemplating it? In case you are a pilot like I'm, and also you fly over the terrain, you see varied patterns of how the mountains and erosion had taken place during the last thousand to 10,000 years. You'll be able to see floodplains, mountains, canyons, and all of it is smart - you may see precisely how the water flows, or had flowed previously. What if we used a pc to design erosion patterns that by no means occurred, and what if we requested a human, maybe a pilot who has seen and flown over such terrain many occasions previously if it had been actual or not?

Are our laptop simulations ok to idiot the human eye? I am speaking a couple of educated observer who has seen this stuff previously over and over? Is that doable; I consider it's. And so, how are you aware when taking a look at Google Earth in case you are taking a look at a pc rendition, or a pretend Birdseye view which maybe is masking up a army base, or a secret space? The fact is you do not, or do you? How about those that work for the nationwide satellite tv for pc intelligence companies, the place all they do is examine terrain maps? May they select the distinction?

Earlier than you reply that query, why do not you utilize Google Earth on the satellite tv for pc view and fly over the deserts in Nevada. A few of that stuff appears to be like fairly weird with bizarre colours, nevertheless it's all actual. For those who doubt that it is actual, go forward and fly over southern Bolivia on Google Earth and take a look at a few of that terrain of their salt flats area and up in opposition to the mountains, you get the identical fascinating colours, a lot of it doesn't look like actual both, however it's. Among the options that NASA has considered on Mars do not look actual, however they're.

No, they don't seem to be the identical as Earth as a result of the erosion patterns that we see now might have been created by wind, there's a totally different ambiance, or lack of. Do you see my level? Not way back, I used to be watching a web based video lecture about erosion patterns, Stephen Wolfram's New Kind of Science, and Mathematica - fractals and mathematical simulations and projections of abrasion patterns. They're amazingly predictable, and that in itself is fascinating. It is as in the event you can see the geological report by the ages.

You may wish to look a few of this up your self. And talking of free lectures, College stage lectures on nearly any subject you need, I ponder if that can change the way forward for our greater training, why go to high school and pay $100,000 to get a sophisticated an important when you may study nearly as a lot on-line by self-study? Sure, fascinating, does this imply it is the loss of life of the College, or are we getting into a brand new age of data move in training? Let's go forward and discuss lecture sort studying.

4.) Need to Be taught Whereas Watching an On-line Video Lecture - Go Full Display and Ditch Distraction

First, in case you are in a college lecture corridor, listening to the very best and brightest professor on a given subject there is a good probability you may go to sleep, however nonetheless your consideration span will likely be longer since you are there, and there aren't the identical distractions as watching a web based video. In case you are watching a College stage video at house in your laptop in somewhat field on the display - there are many distractions.

As an illustration no matter else is within the room, maybe the doorbell, TV, or your mobile phone rings. You may really feel the necessity to textual content somebody again, go to the fridge get one thing to eat, or simply zone out - listening whilst you're doing one thing else, assuming you could multitask and study one thing sophisticated on the similar time. It isn't you could't, it is that you just most likely will not and your reminiscence retention stage will likely be subsequent to nothing, and you have wasted everybody's time, and a few bandwidth besides. Nonetheless, let me ask one other query;

5.) Is The Lecture Lifeless - Even If It is All On-line and Free In The Future?

This can be a first rate query, even in the event you disagree with it. On October 20, 2012 there was an article within the know-how information. Harvard had put up two free programs on-line in laptop science. They had been clearly following Stanford laptop science division's lead, as they did the identical factor final 12 months. Harvard had the identical outcomes over 100,000 individuals signed up, individuals from all around the world. There is not any scarcity of people that want to study on-line, however in doing this; are they reducing their very own throats as they distribute data to the remainder of the world without charge, or are they boosting their very own credibility by doing so? It might result in extra individuals who want to attend that faculty sooner or later, subsequently better enrollment.

Regardless, issues are altering quick, even when the essential lecture at our universities hasn't modified a lot for the reason that 1800s. Certainly, I like to recommend that you just watch the YouTube Video; "Do not lecture me" (with Twitter observe) - Donald Clark at ALT-C 2010," as a result of this gents makes a number of sense. Maybe additionally of curiosity is one other YouTube Video titled; "Re-inventing the Lecture (Or, Why On-line Lectures Do not Work, and What We Can Do About It)."

Certainly, I feel after you watch these movies you may be higher capable of touch upon what I am speaking about right here, and it's one thing that must be mentioned. We want a nationwide dialogue on this, that's if we wish to propel know-how and innovation, and couple that with entrepreneurship transferring our nice nation ahead into the longer term. Subsequent I might like to debate;

6.) Massive Universities, Excessive Tuition, and Massive Buildings and Lovely Structure - Are We Studying But?

Why is it that we put a lot religion into our bigger universities? It is fascinating is not it? They spend enormous quantities of cash placing up nice structure and huge buildings however is that actually what makes them nice? Even when somebody has an important constructing, it doesn't suggest they know what they're speaking about, take into account among the largest church buildings on the earth as an illustration, or the most important mosques. Is it the excessive costs the Universities cost; does that make them nice? Having been in enterprise all my life, I can recall varied attorneys really elevating their value simply so they might get extra enterprise as a result of individuals thought it they charged extra per hour they should be good, they weren't.

Certainly, if a big college spends all their cash on landscaping, lovely brick work, nice statues outdoors the lecture halls, and is one with the epitome of divine structure - then they've much less cash to show you with. They've much less cash to rent the very best professors, purchase the very best tools, or present the very best future for his or her college students. That is to not say that they cannot, maybe they cost you cash far in extra of the quantity of training and also you simply must the pay for all that additional stuff. If you will get a lecture on-line free of charge on YouTube - in lots of regards the data is principally the identical.

Maybe sooner or later your lounge gaming digital actuality know-how will venture a holographic professor in 3-D bringing the professor to you, and it may be performed for a fraction of the price, there isn't any constructing to pay for, maybe the constructing, and the professor, and every little thing else may be projected round your lounge and you'll really feel as in case you are they're. Due to this fact, you get the identical expertise, and interplay, maybe even breaking apart into teams with virtual-reality avatars as fellow college students. Who wants faculty anymore? Higher but, who must take out $100,000 in pupil loans for a similar actual data, minus the massive constructing?

Nonetheless, in your lounge gaming heart which doubles as your new training headquarters, and your newest digital or augmented actuality 3-D holographic laptop sport immersion gadget - you may really be coaching the unreal clever supercomputer community to assume like a human. That data is perhaps utilized by future robotic methods for all kinds of issues from self-driving vans, vehicles, and airplanes by virtual-reality simulator trainers to future fight automobiles within the battle area. Talking of which I've one other query for you;

7.) Ought to We Crowd Supply Satellite tv for pc Information for Future Navy Convoys?

Properly, if we did that, we would not have to inform anybody who was trying on the satellite tv for pc information when or the place we is perhaps transferring troops, tools, or assets, we might simply say that this is among the potential routes for a while sooner or later, and in the event you discover an anomaly mark it down. Those that discover probably the most anomalies will obtain a test within the mail, or a present certificates to their favourite retail retailer on the finish of two months. They will not know when, the place, or which anomaly they discovered was the one which garnered them the free present card.

Those who discover extra actual anomalies than false positives could be given a better stage of level unfold for {dollars} per anomalies they discovered. Additional, they may get an additional hundred {dollars} within the mail every month as a result of they'd a better credibility score. If we did this ultimately the algorithms watching the perfect human minds discover these anomalies might determine how they're doing it, and what's catching their eye, and subsequently we might higher design artificially clever satellite tv for pc analyzing algorithms which might incorporate how a human thoughts thinks, and the way a pc thinks which can give us the very best of all worlds by placing these two collectively.

Maybe in a method, people are already coaching supercomputers with synthetic clever algorithms to run our total society, and civilization for the longer term. In any case, each time you place one thing on the Web, the Web could possibly be studying extra about how people assume, function, and go about their enterprise. In lots of regards we could possibly be creating the matrix for our personal future, and these synthetic intelligence methods will turn out to be conscious, and they are going to be our management sooner or later, it will not be human? It is doable, and let me ask you one other query;

7.) What Occurs When the Cloud Computing Facilities Full of All Human Data Grow to be Conscious?

Think about if you'll as somebody lately stated in The Futurist Journal within the October-September subject of 2012 alongside this line of pondering, one thing to the impact that; "We have already got algorithms which might search all the data in any of those cloud computing facilities, " and "Now we have all kinds of algorithms to assist us discover the information, and algorithms which speak to different algorithms." Certain, all that is smart, and in addition take into account that within the human mind:

A.) Now we have varied mind waves and so they work together with one another.
B.) There are numerous chemical compounds offering vitality with a mixture.
C.) Now we have sensors all by the physique, and the 5 senses which collect data and expertise, taking in all of our observations.

If the cloud laptop facilities, which will likely be speaking to one another and speaking to themselves comprise all the written and visible report of humanity, they may have already gathered all of the experiences, writings, observations, utilizing, and historical past, and so it is just one small step away from turning into conscious. That is the longer term we're transferring in direction of, my query is; can we dare?

In a method, the cloud laptop would turn out to be conscious, and it could be similar to a human mind the place each particular person neuron was a person human. That's to say every bit of the puzzle, from the highest to the underside would have intelligence. Is that this a brand new type of intelligence? Properly, let me scale it all the way down to a easy board sport and ask you a distinct query;

8.) Can We Design a 3-D Chess Board Recreation The place Every Piece Has AI and Seeks to Survive?

And if we might design one thing like that, would not that be similar to the entire Internet Centric Warfare idea? Is not that how an actual army works? Every soldier is given a job, however every soldier is a pondering machine, it follows its orders, but additionally makes an attempt to do what's in its greatest curiosity, that's to outlive, to battle, and to win. In battle it is fairly severe, you both win, otherwise you die. Can we design a 3-D chessboard to do the identical factor? How significantly better wouldn't it be if it was giving suggestions again to the unreal clever chess grasp?

We have already discovered that synthetic intelligence working with a human chess grasp can beat a synthetic clever chess enjoying machine from IBM. After we merge human intelligence with synthetic intelligence we appear to get a lift. What if every bit on the chessboard had synthetic intelligence and it understood how people assume, adapt, survive, and function underneath strain? Aren't we already instructing all this stuff to the way forward for AI by our enter onto the Web? Certain we're, and in the event you've listened to this radio present, or learn my articles for any time period, you already know the reply to that.

What if we scale down even additional? What if we scaled this all the best way all the way down to the molecular stage? What if these molecules or nanoparticles might speak to one another? Are we speaking concerning the subsequent era of microelectronics? Taking all of it the best way down and persevering with the custom of Moore's legislation? Have you ever lately famous within the scientific information October of 2012 that carbon nanotubes have unimaginable properties for producing gentle and miniature holograms? Will this be a brand new option to talk on the micro stage?

Micro organism appears to speak and as soon as it will get economies of scale and reaches a tipping level, it prompts itself, attempting to overwhelm by power and numbers. It operates very similar to a military, though strategically, mathematically, and predictably, effectively nearly? Nearly like a chessboard the place every particular person member can be serving its greatest pursuits? Maybe as we design laptop algorithms for the small-scale or the most important scale we'll start to see the identical factor, and what we study will propel us additional and sooner into the longer term.

There was an fascinating article in Photonics on September 27, 2012 titled; "Nanotubes Undertaking Holograms," which famous that;

"Holograms may be generated by harnessing the conductive and light-scattering qualities of carbon nanotubes, a improvement that would result in crisper projections with a bigger discipline of view. Many scientists consider that carbon nanotubes will likely be on the coronary heart of future trade and human endeavor and can have an effect on photo voltaic cells, most cancers therapies and optical imaging. Researchers used these nanotubes because the smallest-ever scattering parts to create a static holographic projection."

The functions for all this are unimaginable and it might revolutionize every little thing, change ALL of human know-how; communication, computer systems, transportation, vitality, healthcare, and also you identify it, simply take into account the realities right here? Would it not be so daring to recommend that sometime;

9.) An AI Tremendous Determination Making Laptop May Be Working Human Civilizations?

Curiously sufficient, I've deeply thought of the longer term eRepublic or eGovernment AI resolution making system, enterprise software program tremendous laptop idea. If it weren't corrupted by people it might work effectively, programmed benevolence - if that's doable and if the programmers are on the identical web page of liberty, freedom, and standardization of some facets and fundamental infrastructure wants. The anarchists may not prefer it, the crony capitalists would attempt to corrupt it, the socialists would wish to management it, the spiritual fanatics would wish to destroy it, and so forth - once more people, however dwelling in such a system designed for liberty and freedom "I feel it could be a good suggestion" paraphrasing Gandhi on Western Society.

What I am saying or asking rater is; might we ever get human populations to comply with stay with this even when we might show to them mathematically that may be of their greatest pursuits? Are people prepared for that but? I'd recommend you that they need to be preparing for that as a result of they're presently coaching AI supercomputer decision-making machines to do exactly that sooner or later, as people are placing all of their information onto the Web. You see my level?

In fact, if we do that we should get it proper the primary time, however have you ever ever recognized any know-how to have come into the world good the primary time? Look what number of airplane designs crashed and burned earlier than the Wright Brothers really obtained one to fly? And even with them it wasn't like they weren't including insult to harm, as they too crashed a number of occasions themselves and had damaged bones and damaged wing spars to show it. Talking of which I like to debate with you somewhat bit about how innovation involves be, and the topic of;

10.) Innovation, Trial and Error, and Authentic Considering

Not way back, I used to be discussing this with an acquaintance of mine from throughout the pond and he prompt that; "Most improvements is perhaps simply functions of trial and error." Is he proper? Sure, portion actually is so, that is true sufficient. Certainly, is not it in order that; those that know that will have discovered it by the adversity of failure, discover themselves in a spot the place they refuse to give up for the following spherical, ultimately that results in success on account of energy of character.

Thus, those that've achieved have confirmed they've the precise stuff, and have labored to resolve actual issues, however you may't remedy actual issues by training "the definition of madness" which is usually how people "following the chief" normally get there, as they rent these specialists who obtained them into the recent water within the first place (refer again to Einstein's quote), studying from their success, however not their failures as talked about above

Due to this, if somebody is unintelligent and simply recites the specialists, then are they actually wanted for a assume tank or for future innovation? No, we should enlist the specialists themselves, not their hook, line, and sinker followers - after all, as I've mentioned in earlier reveals and articles we might be higher off following those that query authority, somewhat than leaving all of it as much as established order mental elite.

Now then, alongside this line of dialogue my acquaintance additionally famous that; "Most thoughts gorgeous discoveries are nonetheless linked to few masterminds." Properly, that is pretty true, and why we examine the names of useless white males, the victors of historical past who wrote themselves in, and communicate of the "shoulders of giants" nonetheless, many of those unimaginable advances might have come from associates or combining data.

Think about a secure man for a member of the Royal Geological Society again within the day, he got here up with the thought, however he could not learn or write, so the person who wrote it down obtained and took the credit score for it, and at the moment we've got to "memorize" his identify at school, but in actuality that is not the way it really occurred.

Thus, in lots of regards it is onerous to say what an authentic thought is, or what number of really come about. In any case, many psychologists and philosophers have famous that the human thoughts comes up with concepts and ideas based mostly on its expertise and enter from its sensors by the sense of contact, scent, style, sight, and listening to. It is somewhat troublesome to conceive one thing that you have not skilled or shouldn't be inside your realm, it is to not say that you just could not, it is that it would not occur fairly often. Attending to a giant breakthrough is very unusual.

Certainly it's recognized that the majority innovation comes from downside fixing, and maybe utilizing recognized information, observations, and experiences in distinctive methods. Then there's the trial and error interval, the place you crash and burn, otherwise you modify, adapt, and survive to battle one other day - to tweak your invention, and to make it work. That is your job as an innovator, and it is one thing I hope you'll take into account.
