On Technology

I am fascinated with the technology of technology in every form. I am a serious closet scientist, battling every day I breathe the child inside who swears I was never smart enough to actually BE a genius. I often wonder if I should have become a researcher of human behavior, even though I suppose I am already, or if I still could do that truly before I die. Do I need permission?

Gratefully, technology gives us the ability to live many lives simultaneously, so there is some hope for me. In my blog I share the minds and voices I am currently listening to with a special ear.

At present, I’m immersed in building Sofiia.io – a new human insight AI engine and human identity and learning platform. So there’s that. Pretty focused on the questions of whether we can point AI to help people see the better angels of our nature, our own negative behavior traits, and accelerate our human and individual awareness.

I also really care about the connection between technology and saving the world’s resources, the planet and its people in general.

I believe that the Jason Silva’s and Ray Kurzweil’s of the world are correct. Singularity is here. I only wish I had more hours in a day and a longer life to live to absorb all there is to know and do in the art and science of the technology of technology.

John von Neumann was quoted as saying that “the ever accelerating progress of technology … gives the appearance of approaching some essential singularity in the history of the race beyond which human affairs, as we know them, could not continue.” His definition of the Singularity was that the Singularity is the moment beyond which “technological progress will become incomprehensibly rapid and complicated.”(Singularity Symposium).

We have arrived.

In the meantime, I explore and remain open to the possibility that I can contribute to literally changing the world and every human being’s life in it by my actions and perseverance to understanding and wielding technology as a force for good. I better, and so should you.
