I recently attended the premiere screening of the documentary movie Data Science Pioneers in Christchurch. This was a great chance to learn and reflect on what I believe will become the ethics of the future. The movie dispels the myth that artificial intelligence and robots will rise against humanity and conquer the world. If you are interested in the future roles our students may have (or create for themselves), the convergence of humans and technology, machine learning, AI and of course, the ethical dilemmas all this presents, then this movie will be worth watching. There will also be a discussion panel with the team from Digital Future Aotearoa after the movie.
I’ve long been interested in emerging technologies such as virtual reality and augmented reality. You probably heard of virtual reality and augmented reality. I remember one of the earliest examples of virtual reality which was a software product by Apple – QuickTime VR which was an amazing software package.
This week I’ve been lucky enough to be at the inaugural summit for Singularity University and learning how exponential technologies are disrupting the world. A really eye-opening event with some very interesting speakers.
It's amazing to see how some everyday problems will be solved in the future. How might technology such as this solve other common problems? These uses of nanotechnology will blow your mind.
