The Lifeboat Foundation has launched 3 books! They are:

• “The Human Race to the Future: What Could Happen — and What to Do, Third Edition”, available in paperback at https://amzn.to/1Z9zzW5 and Kindle at https://amzn.to/1O6uADY

“Imaginative yet substantive, readable yet science oriented, and occasionally humorous, this book proposes future scenarios spanning from the current century to nearly eternity. Most chapters offer a concluding section with recommendations.”

• “Visions of the Future”, available in paperback at https://amzn.to/1P3omBK and Kindle at https://amzn.to/1mlfcaw

“In Visions of the Future you’ll find stories and essays about artificial intelligence, androids, faster-than-light travel, and the extension of human life. You’ll read about the future of human institutions and culture. But these literary works are more than just a reprisal of the classical elements of science fiction and futurism. At their core, each of these pieces has one consistent, repeated theme: us.”

• “Prospects for Human Survival”, available in paperback at https://amzn.to/222esrc and Kindle at https://amzn.to/1P4ibiE

“Advanced technologies such as computers, genetics, nanotech, robotics, and artificial intelligence (AI) are progressing at an accelerating pace. Wells shows that the pace is too rapid for us to safely adapt. He makes a strong case for developing friendly superhuman AI as quickly as possible, hopefully a nurturing artificial overlord that will protect us from ourselves. The danger is that it will not be as friendly as we hope, but the alternative is unacceptable risk.”

The Millennium Project is conducting a Real-Time Delphi Survey and would like your input.

They want you to share your judgments about how future technology over the next 35 years (artificial narrow intelligence, artificial general intelligence, Internet of Things, robotics, synthetic biology, nanotechnology, 3D/4D printing, self-driving vehicles, drones, mobile/cloud, augmented reality/holography, etc.) could affect the future of work, and what should be done to create positive conditions.

A realistic and desirable human destination would produce a different space program than what we have today.

“We reach for new heights and reveal the unknown for the benefit of humankind.” This is NASA’s Vision Statement. This is NASA’s reason for being, its purpose. This is a vision statement for science and knowledge. This vision statement was crafted in a solar system that has only one planet that is environmentally friendly to human life...
