Peter Diamandis at OCE Discovery: Technology is a Resource Liberating Force

P1040698This year’s OCE Discovery conference in Toronto was the first of five consequent events that I am attending within the next 3 weeks. The other four are the just finished Subtle Technologies Festival and the upcoming Global Future 2045 Congress in NY City, the ISTAS13 Conference and the Pros and Cons of Drones in Toronto.

Out of the first two events the highlight for me was Peter Diamandis‘ keynote speech at the OCE Discovery conference. It is for this reason that I wanted to share it with those who, unlike me, were not able to see it in person.

During his 1 hour presentation Peter Diamandis talks about exponential technologies (such as AI, robotics, genetics, synthetic biology, computer science, 3D printing); incentivized competitions organized by his X Prize foundation; Abundance and Planetary Resources.

The favorite quote that I will take away from Diamandis’ keynote is: “Technology is a resource liberating force!”

 

Here are a few images I took at the conference:

The conference was opened by the Honorable Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario

I have rarely seen a more focused and attentive audience of this size

Peter was almost constantly mobbed by crowds of people eager to talk to him

… but still managed to find time and give a few interviews for the media
