Technological progress is exponential. In the near future we may see super-intelligent machines, robotic automation, genetic engineering, life extension, and compelling virtual worlds. These developments pose both promise and peril. If approached properly they could elevate human civilization to new heights. If utilized unethically they could destroy us. This talk will describe three ideological approaches that advocate the use of advanced technology and contrast them with Objectivist philosophy.
Noted futurist José Cordero will comment.
