Here's the video of my talk at Stanford a couple of weeks ago for the #USRio20 conference on sustainable development. I was trying to frame lessons from technology, including the notions of collective intelligence, man-machine symbiosis, real time feedback loops from sensors, to provide a context for understanding the role of tools like FrontlineSMS, Ushahidi, Crowdflower, Samasource and the like in their work. (I also give a shout out to Dave Warner's Beer for Data program in Afghanistan, and Claire Lockhart's Fixing Failed States.)

As I've been doing a lot lately, I took off from Google's autonomous vehicle, because it brings together so many key themes in the technologies that are shaping the future, and by unpacking the technology behind this vehicle, you get deeper insight into where technology is taking us, and the fusion of machine learning and collective intelligence that is powering that future.

Still amazes me that so many more of us have access to these presentation than before
 
I see this new information age isn't as much about sharing as much info as possible with as many people as possible as it is about sharing more relevant information to those who have the ambition and the power to make a change.

It's people like +Tim O'Reilly here and those who share their passions around the world who get the right people motivated to change the world for the better!

Thanks Tim, you certainly have the means and the motivation to get people thinking and to get things done!
 
When I see Tim talking about computer evolution, I feel that I am not alone with my ideas and thoughts which havent`t been thought and mentioned before.
 
Tim, will you be in the St. Louis area any time soon?
 
Inspiring Talk. Thanks for sharing. I picked out a quote "The global brain is us, connected and augmented". I would like to use it in a keynote "From control to purpose: humans in the Internet of things" that will discuss the distributed governance with communities in this future technology space. Do you agree that your quote would fit in this context?
