In the near-future in people will chat with their computers, not only to extract information, but for fun. In the past two years, scientists have already made significant progress in overcoming this challenge. Technologies under development could be humanity’s greatest existential threat. There is a risk of something seriously dangerous happening is in the five year time-frame.

Oil in 60 min

Although efforts are being made to cut down on our reliance on oil, such as more efficient cars and green energy production solutions, it seems very unlikely we’ll ever stop using it completely.
