  • Flippy the Robot is now cooking hamburgers at Caliburger in Pasadena, CA.
  • In this TED TALK, Inventor, entrepreneur and visionary Ray Kurzweil describes how technologies enter our society and evolve in a prescient discussion of the future of our world. We increasingly adopt new technologies faster and they evolve at exponential scales.
  • Productivity and wealth creation haven’t stopped over decades, but not everyone is able to take advantage of it. We need to learn to race with the machine instead of against it. A team of humans and computers together can beat humans or computers alone.
  • Futurizon’s Ian Pearson’s said at the World Government Summit in Dubais that “The fact is that AI can go further than humans, it could be billions of times smarter than humans at this point.” His comments echoed those made by Elon Musk in early 2017.
