I recently watched another TED talk that opened my eyes a bit more and got me thinking. The talk was entitled “Abundance is our future”, and discussed the age of humanity that we’re in where there is an abundance of technology, information, and innovation. In TED words:
Peter Diamandis makes a case for optimism — that we’ll invent, innovate and create ways to solve the challenges that loom over us. “I’m not saying we don’t have our set of problems; we surely do. But ultimately, we knock them down.”
There are simply opportunities everywhere, and life is not the same as it was just 20 years ago. Things that seemed normal or good aren’t necessarily the best or normal anymore. Things are so readily available and everyone is so much more connected in new ways that things are different. People can learn much faster today because of the ease of search and the power or technology and computing. Intuition only tells us only so much, but with so much going on, computer analysis gives us a new intuition to look at. Watch the above 16 minute video, you’ll enjoy it.
