GeekSpeak – what will the future world of robots and humans be like?

How will society change when every car, every bus stop, every toaster and every shop assistant is a robot?  At what point will we think that robots should have human rights?  When will it become illegal to shoot your toaster or leave your food too long in the fridge so that she looks bad and can’t marry your car?  If you make your car drive over a cliff will you be charged with murder because you killed an AI?

Will there be novels and soap operas about the emotional lives of robots?  Will there be new robot art forms?  Will humans enjoy the robot novels, soaps and art?  Or will we have 2 separate cultures, human and robotic?  Do you think you will ever have a robot friend?

Welcome to the coming years of confusion.  Come and discuss our destiny as only one of the dominant species on the planet.  Bring a towel.

GeekSpeak – how will we change when we go into space?

What will humans become once we venture out of the earth’s protective environment?

Will humans be carefully chosen for all colonizing missions?  Only very small people, because it saves on food and space?  Only those with little aggression, for obvious reasons?

Will humans be engineered for space colonization?  Will their DNA be changed to protect them from radiation sickness?  Will they be given chloroplasts so they can make their own food?  Will we send people into space as brains in jars?

And how will selection and adaptation work in space?  Will we grow taller on the moon?  Will we adapt to the temperature on Mars or Venus?

Will there be many human species in the future?  One species for every planet we colonize?

Come and discuss our future selves in GeekSpeak.

GeekSpeak – what will happen in 2019?

Now that the new year has started let’s get our brains working again and think of some predictions for 2019.  This time next year, when we look back at 2019, what will we see?

Will there be big political shifts?  Will there be new countries starting?  Or old countries disappearing?  New alliances, new forms of government, new empires?  New wars, with new and horrible weapons?  Or will 2019 be a year of peace?

Will there be an economic collapse or will we enter a new golden age of technology?  Will there be scientific breakthroughs?  In fusion, or nanotech?  Or genetic engineering?  Or robotics? Will you ride in a self-driving car in 2019?  Or go into space?

Will we be able to meet this time next year to talk about it?  Will Second Life still be here?

What do you expect for the coming year?  What do you hope for and what do you fear?  Come to GeekSpeak to talk about it and bring your crystal ball.
