Video interview
October 25, 2021

IN BRIEF

  • 6:05 – There’s no magic bullet: “but a combination of driverless cars, smart roads that can size up the situation immediately and delivery systems that are automatic and artificially intelligent. The combination of all these factors will make cities much more livable in the future.
  • 14:55 – Artificial intelligence will be everywhere in the future: “In 2050, we’ll have fusion power, that is energy that comes from the hydrogen in seawater that will energize our machines; giving us almost unlimited power for free.”
  • 20:15 – We could have a library of souls: “People who have passed away but have left a digital legacy to marvel at. Digital immortality is something that’s achievable within a few decades. Silicon Valley is already offering to do this and one day it’ll be so perfect that it will be almost indistinguishable from the real person.’
