Infinite Progress: How the Internet and Technology Will End Ignorance, Disease, Poverty, Hunger, and War

Infinite Progress: How the Internet and Technology Will End Ignorance, Disease, Poverty, Hunger, and War

Speaking Topics
  • The Coming Golden Age of Humanity

    In this electrifying talk, Reese compellingly demonstrates how current technological changes will ultimately bring about the end of poverty, disease, hunger, ignorance and war. Reese explores how these historical problems of humanity are fundamentally problems of technology, and thus will have technological solutions, solutions we will find much sooner than is commonly believed.

  • How Technology is Changing Us

    The direct effects of technology on society and culture are evident all around us. We are seeing an unprecedented societal shift towards decentralization of power and a rise in individualism. However, not as obvious, are the second-order effects of technology on the world. This talk examines how technology is unintentionally causing our lives to become more and more untethered from the institutions by which people have traditionally defined themselves, and tries to understand eventual impact of this untethering on our daily lives, community, family, business, laws, and education.

  • Big Data and the Perfectibility of Humanity

    This talk explores how the widespread proliferation of cheap sensors of all kinds will create a vast collective memory for the planet which will serve as a record of every cause and effect. This data will be scoured for associations that will be turned into algorithms which optimize every decision we have to make in life. And while we may not always choose to do those things, it will effectively make every person on the planet vastly wiser than the wisest person who has ever lived. In the future, no one will ever need to make a mistake again.

  • Greatness: How To Change The World for Centuries To Come

    The world has, throughout human history, changed. Almost always, this change is for the better. Through civilization we have raised life expectancy, standard of living, access to education, and political liberty. How has this change been brought about? Largely through the actions of individuals driven to change the world. This talk focuses on how that change happens, and looks at best practices as to how virtually any individual can have literally worldwide effect on the history of the planet.
