||CleanEp. 10 - The Future of Life on Earth||What will be the future of life on earth? 🌎 In 1 billion years, the sun will be so hot that all the world’s oceans will have evaporated away. Life, as we know it, will no longer be able to exist on earth at that time. However, this is the least of our problems... Asteroids, nuclear war, black holes, climate change, epidemics, autonomous weaponry, super-intelligent AI: these are just some of the challenges we may face in the course of earth's lifecycle. What can we possible do to mitigate these risks? And what are the worst case, best case, and most likely future scenarios that we will encounter? Find out on Episode 10 of Hence, The Future podcast! Featuring special guest and earth scientist Michal Kipp. 🔭 Website: www.hencethefuture.com/ Instagram: www.instagram.com/hencethefuture/ Twitter: twitter.com/hencethefuture Facebook: www.facebook.com/hencethefuture/ #HTF #HenceTheFuture||9/18/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEp. 9 - The Future of Advertising||Advertising is already scary good at hacking human behavior... With each day, Ads are becoming more + more: 👩🚀 Immersive - with VR and AR blurring reality 🕵️♂️ Personalized - via enormous amounts of data 🤖 Automated - with little need for human input How might these and other trends portend the future of advertising? If we are already able to hack human behavior to some extent ourselves, how much better would a Super-Intelligent AI system be? What's the worst case, best case, and most likely scenario for the future of advertising?

||CleanEp. 8 - The Future of Education||How do we prepare future generations for what's to come? 🎓 Our kids and grandkids are going to be faced with incredible challenges, including autonomous weapons, quantum computing, widespread unemployment, economic upheaval, income inequality, nano technology, and the most pressing issue of all, artificial super-intelligence... How can we best prepare these future leaders of tomorrow, today? In this episode of HTF, Justin and Mattimore discuss alternative methods of schooling including Montessori schools and Elon Musk's school, life as a "dance" versus life as a "journey," how virtual reality can be used to augment education, knowledge as a tree, and the importance of being able to distinguish fact from fiction in today's uncertain world.

||CleanEp. 7 - The Future of Health and Mortality||Will humans become immortal? 🐉 This seems like an absurd question. Yet already doctors can replace our organs, give blood transfusions, and surgically attach bionic limbs. If we continue to make any progress whatsoever, we will someday be able to replace and/or repair neurons, nerves, DNA strands, individual cells, and even perhaps the brain itself. 🧠 Which leads us to another question... What makes you YOU? If scientists could download all your memories, along with the exact blueprint of your neural connections and genetic predispositions to a new body, would that be you? Would you want that? Delve into all these questions and more as we explore the unknown in Episode 7: “The Future of Health and Mortality,” which features our first ever guest, Dr. Martin Mullen 🔭 Website: https://www.hencethefuture.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/hencethefuture/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/hencethefuture Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hencethefuture/ #HTF #HenceTheFuture||8/21/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEp. 6 - The Future of Privacy and Security||Big Brother is always watching in more than one potential future scenario... 👁🗨🌐 And he's got technology that allows him to keep tabs on all citizens at all times, even their facial expressions and thoughts. Tune in to Episode 6 of HTF to hear the full spectrum of scenarios for the future of privacy and security: from Orwell's 1984 (but worse) to Buddha-like enlightenment worldwide. Mattimore and Justin also discuss best practices for how to keep your data safe! Enjoy.

||CleanEp. 5 - The Future of Jobs, Income, and Fulfillment||Robots are coming to take our jobs 🤖🛠, but is that such a bad thing? After all, isn't the goal to spend our lives doing that which we find to be truly valuable and enjoyable... not laboring away in some cubicle doing tasks that could be better performed by an Artificial Intelligence system? Whatever your opinion may be, irreversible trends are taking hold. Every day, AI systems are getting better at doing YOUR job. Eventually, these AI systems will be better than ALL humans at ALL jobs ALL of the time, except perhaps for those select few jobs that have intrinsic “human value,” such as yogis and massage therapists. Are we ready for widespread automation and joblessness? How will people earn an income when they are unemployable? What is everyone going to do with all this extra time on their hands? Where will people derive their sense of self worth and fulfillment if not from their careers? Tune in to Episode 5 to find out about the Future of Jobs, Income, and Fulfillment! Enjoy.||8/7/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEp. 4 - The Future of Big Tech||How will Big Tech companies: specifically Amazon, Google, Apple, Facebook, Netflix, and Microsoft, evolve over the next 10-20 years? • Already, Amazon is becoming the backbone of the US economy. • Google has released the most sophisticated machine voice intelligence the world has ever known. • Apple is making technology so advanced and seamless that it's becoming invisible. • Netflix is growing so fast and creating so much content for everything that it's about to surpass Disney, a nearly 100 year old company. • Facebook is bringing everyone online and creating a virtual world not unlike 'The Oasis.' • Microsoft is surprising everyone with their unique take on quantum computing. What will become of these tech giants? Find out on Episode 4 of Hence, The Future! Justin and Mattimore will also announce which 3 tech companies they believe are best prepared for the future. We'll also explore the worst case, best case, and most likely scenario, as always. We hope you enjoy!||7/31/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEp. 3 - The Future of Happiness||Do you think people in general are becoming happier over time? ☀️ On the one hand, the standard of living has improved substantially around the globe. On the other hand, we are facing fierce challenges such as income inequality, technology-related anxiety, global climate change, and the prospect of source of meaning (jobs) being taken away by machines. What can we learn from the happiest countries in the world? What can we learn from the unhappiest? And how should we optimize our own lives for maximum happiness and fulfillment? Find out on today's episode: "The Future of Happiness!" Enjoy.||7/24/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEp. 2 - The Future of Intelligence||What does the future of intelligence look like? 🧠🤖 Well, if we continue to make any progress whatsoever, machines will eventually be smarter than humans. So it's not a question of IF machines will be smarter than humans, but WHEN! “The power of AI lays dormant in machines just like the power of nuclear weapons lay dormant in the atom” - Nick Bostrom 2040 is the median year that researchers predict machines will achieve "human-level general intelligence;" however, there are many ways that this could take form... Cyborgs, Oracles, and AI Overlords are just a few possibilities. We could find ours living in a utopia, a dystopia, or somewhere in between. Human intelligence will continue to improve as well. We are already figuring out how to modify our own genetic code, and how to add a digital layer via brain machine interfaces. In Episode 2 we explore all these topics and more as we determine the best case, the worst case, and the most likely scenario for the future of intelligence.||7/17/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
