Visions of the Future: The Intelligence Revolution

Join theoretical physicist Michiu Kaku as he explores the realms of possibility created by the exponential growth of information processing and technological advances. In this first episode, you'll learn about ubiquitous computing, virtual reality, neural networks, artificial intelligence and foreseeable advances in human intelligence through medical and scientific intervention.

The possibilities are exciting, as Kaku points out, and they are almost inevitably coming, so the time to start thinking about the implications that these advances will produce and eventually confront us is now. One of them, for instance, might be privacy: as new developments that can monitor our activities and safety are produced and installed everywhere, will there be any room in modern society for privacy? This is worth thinking about.

Among the experts interviewed are neuroscientist Susan Greenfield and famous inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil, and you'll also meet Asimo, one of the most advanced robots in the world.

Oh yeah, very soon we'll definitely be having robot sex...
