Attention Getter: A city of 1 million people on Mars, holograms, self-driving cars, and a world free of cancer and sickness—all of these predictions were made by billionaires or scientists or presidents today—very prestigious people—who think our world is going to change a lot, but why do they sound so crazy to everybody else?

Purpose: To inform the audience about very advanced developing technologies that could drastically change living on Earth

Preview: Look at some of today’s developing technologies in computing, 3D printing, and genetic coding and why they will most likely end up changing the way we live more than all of human history.

Transition: First I’ll show you why technology will change so much

I. Main Point: Why technology will change the world so much

A. Law of accelerating returns (graph) 1.-“accurate for hundreds of years” (source: Ray Kurzweil) 2.-never ever broken down (source: TED X) 3.-most scientists and physicists have certainty that it will continue 4.-ray kurzweil’s predictions accuracy 86% (source: Forbes)

B.exponential vs linear thinking 1.- “we evolved thinking linearly” -Peter H. Diamandis 2.-example of linear vs exponential steps (source: bold, peter diamandis)

Transition: One exponential informational technology is genetic coding

II. Genetic Coding will change the future.

A.CRISPR 1.-genetic cut and paste

2.-i”s natural bacterium technology against viruses” -Andrew Hessel 3.-curing cancer and disease

a. giving cancer a cold

b. old cells commit suicide

c. programming immune system to identify attack cancer

4.-Veterinary Programs

a. extending pets life (source: andrew hessel)

b. “curing cancer in dogs by end this year” - andrew hessel

B. Creating Organisms (source: Michio Kaku) 1. microbial and viral nanotechnology

2. kids on typewriters (source: physics of the future)

3. intelligent creation with A.I.

4. modified embryos

a. china

b. kurzegsagt

c. IVF

Transition: The second area of rapid change is in the form of Additive Manufacturing

III. Main Point 3: (3d printing) makes everything accessible and cheap

A. 3D printers

1. can print from thousands of material

2. have come very far (so far we’ve printed)

a. body parts (printed lungs, bone, tissue, skin)

b. moving parts

c. buildings

d. cars

e. planes

f. food

B. Will impact your life drastically

1. by 2025 you will download items like you download music

a. houses

b. clothing

c. cheap (paying for designs on a marketplace)

Transition: The most startling area of rapid change is perhaps artificial intelligence

IV. Main Point 4: Artificial Intelligence

A. Artificial Narrow Intelligence

1. what we have now (source: wait but why)

2. good at one task (source: wired)

B. Artificial General Intelligence

0. brain computer interfaces convince neurologists and physicists

it’s close between 2045 and 2090 (source: wait but why)

1. can learn like humans (resembles JARVIS)

2. neural networks (computer/deep learning)

3. AlphaGo

4. Watson (Source: IBM)

a. beat two best jeopardy champions

b. doctoral board consulted Watson to diagnose woman and

save her life (source: Huffington Post)

5. Quantum Computers

a. brain simulation

b. powerful enough for A.I.

c. (Google, Regetti, both within 12-18 months of working

Quantum computer) (Source: Peter H. Diamandis)

C. Artificial Super-Intelligence

1. smarter than average human exponentially

2. can solve any problem


Summary: In conclusion, Regardless of what predictions come true, it is evident that we are living in the most exciting time of human history


The accelerating pace at which all different sources of informational technology are growing—including artificial intelligence, genetic coding, and additive manufacturing—will forever change the way we live, feel, and maybe even think.
