I am hopeful but quite anxious about UBI. My biggest concern is that it will bring the quality of life to the lowest common denominator world wide. From my perspective a great deal of nationalist trappings will ride along with it. Or you will see plummeting quality of life in all developed countries as economic migrants flood in from every corner of the globe and budgets collapse. I do like that it attempts to keep as much of the free market as possible as demand drives innovation.

With all the talk of building walls, it seems to me that technology has actually been rapidly tearing down walls. Residency, currency and language are rapidly being disrupted and dematerialized by technology. Here’s how:

I like the comforting words of Elon Musk: "the result of this election will not change what we're already doing."

Move forward. Make progress. Make change happen, no matter what the limits or barriers are.

Today’s extraordinary rate of exponential growth may do much more than just disrupt industries. It may actually give birth to a new species – reinventing humanity – over the next 30 years.
Head here for my full archive of tech insights. As we close out 2016, if you'll allow me, I'd like to take a risk and venture into a topic I'm personally compelled to think about… a topic that will seem far out to most readers. Today's extraordinary rate of exponential growth may do much more ...

+Peter H. Diamandis There's another aspect of solar PV panels which is not receiving enough attention. I believe that low-cost PV panels will cause the demise of the High-Voltage Grid. And with that, the remote wind-farms and solar parks will (also) become stranded assets.
The cost of installing PV panels on a building's roof and facade will quickly become so low, that it will be significantly lower than power from the Grid. The transmission lines' capital and maintenance cost, the transmission losses (30% - 40%) and the management thereof add a significant middle-man cost. That will cause the Grid to lose out against private/personal rooftop generation.
Besides that, many power companies are playing games in an attempt to extend their oligopoly. They're not embracing the new reality. By the time they wake up, it will be too late.
My estimate is that by 2019 all Grid-operators between the latitudes of 45 degrees North and South will be in deep, deep financial poo. The others will follow, it's just a matter of time.
For solar and wind farm projects to have a chance of financial survival, they need to be installed close to where there's a major centre of demand. However, I believe even that won't help. Users will self-generate, even large amounts.
Solar PV with battery storage will become dominant, because it's more versatile and small-scale modular. I suspect that wind-generation will become, at best, a significant side-show.

In this blog I discuss one of the most important proposed solutions to job loss due to automation -- the notion of “Universal Basic Income” (sometimes called guaranteed minimum income).
Head here for my full archive of tech insights. Some fear that robots and AI will steal our jobs. They probably will (in the near-term, at least half of them). If that happens, what will we do for a living? How will we earn money? In this blog I'll be discussing one of the most important ...

Humans have always built tools of intelligence. But now, our tools have become sophisticated enough that we are about to incorporate them into our biology and take an exponential leap forward in intelligence. This is so significant that it will change us as a species – we’re taking evolution into our own hands.
Head here for my full archive of tech insights. Are you scared of Artificial Intelligence (AI)? Do you believe the warnings from folks like Prof. Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and others? Is AI the greatest tool humanity will ever create, or are we “summoning the demon”?

Human intelligence on Artificial Body......A small though about colonize the universe.
Based on Science we already know that we are basically conscience and body. Our physical body is just a space suit designed to survive the earth environment. We need a body protection when we are several miles away from earth troposphere.

I hear so many debates about “Artificial Intelligence” on “Artificial Body”. For humans to survive in Space-environment we would have to change this body to something that can survive without any food and water, as a result not producing any bio-product (sorry potatoes) and in addition these body should be able to resist and endure the most adverse environment. A body that needs only Electricity as a font of energy.

With a future advanced technology in addition to currently one available, we can have an Artificial Body. We could keep our current appearance or have choices of a variety shapes and colors of body. Be able to taste food and beverages on social events. Have a Sense of smell; be able to feel the wind and the water-running trough the skin. Have everything on a super body.

Our current technology in space ship propulsion is very limited and its not possible to travel with speed of light, even in the near
Future and most likely our biological body could not resist the speed of light.

With Artificial Body, humans could extend their life span into a several hundred years. With this in mind, we should no limit the space traveling to “ how long” but to “ how Far” the distance we could go. How perfect for very long missions.
It doesn’t make any sense to start a very important space mission that cannot be finished in our lifetime expectancy.

We should focus on developing an “Artificial Body” for our Intelligence and not creating fear of the Unknown as I have heard from some scientist and some philanthropist.

Apart from the Moral and Ethical Issues, we should be worrying about saving our species.https://plus.google.com/photos/...

The cost of genome sequencing has plummeted 100,000-fold, outpacing Moore’s Law by 3x. Today's Abundance Insider featured a discovery from scientists at The Gladstone Institutes that prove how far we've come using genomics and big data. We're heading toward a future where we'll be able to eradicate conditions like cancer and heart disease, thus extending the human lifespan.
