Co-founder of ConceptLabs, Peter Cochrane, shared a glimpse of upcoming technology which will offer us greater security and convenience but may also hamper our privacy rights. RFID (radio frequency) tags which are now being added to consumer products may also be used in conjunction with container vessels entering the US. The technology could be used to detect if a container had been broken into and what was taken, and then to potentially track stolen items. ... More »Host: Art Bell
The Co-Founder of ConceptLabs, futurist Peter Cochrane, offered an uncensored commentary on how today's dramatic advances in technology will alter the way we live and think. The current pace of technological advancement, according to Cochrane, will continue into the future due in large part to ever increasing computational power. He cautioned, however, that Moore's law, which states that computer processing power will double every 18 months, may slow after 2015.Nonetheless, Cochrane expects that within a decade MP3 players will have the capacity to carry all of the music ever recorded. In another ten years, he imagines small consumer devices that will house every movie ever made. With breakthroughs in nanotechnology and virtually unlimited data storage, Cochrane thinks it will eventually be possible to create a "Soul Catcher" implant capable of recording every human experience onto a microchip (also see article below).Cochrane said the biggest problem facing humanity in ...
