TEDxBrussels: A Day in the Deep Future

 Youtube Direktrucker

Im November veranstaltete TEDxBrussels einen Futuristen-Event, in dem alle Vorträge unter dem Motto „A Day in the Deep Future“ standen und die Redner ihre Visionen vom Leben in 50 Jahren (deep?) darzulegen. Metafilter hat alle Vorträge davon zusammengestellt, oben exemplarisch der Vortrag „Beyond Machines: The Year 3000“ von Rudy Rucker, neben William Gibson wohl der bekannteste Vertreter des Cyberpunk.

Rudy Rucker, a science fiction writer, professor of Computer Science tells TEDxBrussels his vision of the future. As in his novel "Software" where computers 'preserve' the human brain, a so-called 'life box' database remains which keeps our memories alive.
These machines however cannot substitute humans as our minds perform more physical and biological processes, where artificial intelligence only relies on inferences.
Biomathematics models such as cellular automaton and Belousov--Zhabotinsky simulation come closer to the biological processes.
He describes his idea of this biological computation emerging in the future with beautiful (mostly self-drawn) paintings.
