TED 2023 met Peter Weyland

Een TED talk uit de toekomst, hoe is dat mogelijk? Industrieel Peter Weyland spreekt op TED in het jaar 2023 over zijn passie voor en nakende doorbraken in de robotica.

Peter Weyland has been a magnet for controversy since he announced his intent to build the first convincingly humanoid robotic system by the end of the decade.

Our first true piece of technology. Fire. 100,000 BC – Stone tools. 4,000 BC – The wheel. 9th Century AD – Gun powder. Bit of a game changer that one. 19th Century – Eureka! The light bulb! 20th Century – The automobile, television, nuclear weapons, space craft, internet. 21st Century – BioTech, NanoTech, fusion and fission and M Theory.

And that was just the first decade! We are now three months into the year of our Lord, 2023. At this moment in our civilisation we can create cybernetic individuals who, in just a few short years, will be completely indistinguishable from us. Which leads to an obvious conclusion: we are the Gods now.

For those of you who know me you will be aware by now that my ambition is unlimited. You know that I will settle for nothing short of greatness or I will die trying. For those of you who do not yet know me, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Peter Weyland. And if you’ll indulge me, I’d like to change the world.

Deze fictieve presentatie maakt deel uit van een promotiecampagne voor Ridley Scott’s nieuwste film Prometheus, een prequel voor de klassieker Alien, die op 30 mei bij ons in de zalen verschijnt. Laat ik alvast proberen een plaatsje te reserveren. :)
