Douglas Flora: How about a thought-provoking Monday morning Vinod Khosla?

Douglas Flora shared a post on LinkedIn:

“How about a thought-provoking Monday morning? In his recent TED talk, Vinod Khosla, a prominent techno-optimist, outlines 12 bold predictions for our future.

‘Experts extrapolate the past. They prevent radical progress because they don’t think nonlinearly. They don’t think of the improbable. I personally believe only the improbables are important.’

Khosla believes that technological progress should be driven by empathy and care. He emphasizes the importance of thinking beyond conventional limits and that embracing the improbable with passion and compassion can lead to groundbreaking advancements.

Looking forward, AI will revolutionize expertise accessibility. He predicts some ambitious goals for us in the next 25 years, ‘Every human being on the planet can have, 24/7, a free doctor for primary care in a very expansive way. Every child will have a free tutor available and accessible.’ Expertise in fields like structural engineering and oncology will become near-free, making a world of abundance possible.

Will all of these come to pass in the next 25 years? Probably not. But many will, and we see several of them arriving very soon. For a detailed look at these predictions, watch the full 9-minute talk here.”
