techno-doomsday

The following piece by Yuval Noah Harari may interest you, if you haven't seen it already. A very bleak prediction and absolutely plausible.


"Bioengineering coupled with the rise of AI may result in the separation of humankind into a small class of superhumans, and a massive underclass of "useless" people." The 21st century could be looking at creating a world with much greater inequity than anything seen before in human history.

But that presumes that technology stays in the hands of a few, when it historically hasn't. Out of those who are able to understand and wield technology, there will always be those who are willing to share it with others.
