People have already started to do this on Rec Room (a virtual reality platform)

I googled Neuralink-- and now I have a new "in the future people will:"

Get jobs based not on who they know, but their track record.

I like the idea of building trust in a standardized, scalable way. Is that possible? I hope so.

Move money in and out of assets in seconds instead of hours or days.
Nathan Worden's avatar
This makes so much sense to me. Can't wait for this 🙌

Trade stocks synthetically and keep their savings in yield farms
Nathan Worden's avatar
Not only would this incentive more saving, it would also change people's psychology. The healthy changes to culture at large would be massive in my opinion. Good one 😃
Josh Worden's avatar
Have fewer distinctions between able-bodied people and neurologically disabled people due to technologies for the latter
Nathan Worden's avatar
Love the idea of innovation for the sake of inclusion 🙌
Jon Gall's avatar
Not go to college.
Nathan Worden's avatar
🙌Agree with this. "In the future people will..."

Pay less for education and pick what they want to study based off of people who's careers they respect. And hopefully learn directly from those people.

Transform atoms in one configuration into atoms in another configuration and so hopefully create matter atom by atom (a la David Deutsch’s “The Beginning of Infinity”)
Nathan Worden's avatar
Ah! I've been listening to Naval's podcast on "The Beginning of Infinity" lately! I still haven't read it, but Naval's explanations of the ideas have been very approachable.

I think this is the first one, only 2 minutes:
Albert Kim's avatar
@nathanworden yeah I’ve seen Naval post about it on Twitter. It’s one of the most impactful books i’ve ever read

Own all their data in a digital “locker” and be able to take it from context to context frictionlessly (financial, health, employment history, etc.)
Nathan Worden's avatar
This would be so convenient, not to mention give people a lot ore control about where their data is being shared. Love it

Hybrid edge computing will be instrumental in making this happen - such an interesting part of the market / cloud ecosystem - currently most of the investable companies are the in venture space - hopefully some industry leaders will start to emerge soon
Nathan Worden's avatar
That's a fascinating area- any good reads on the hybrid edge computing area that you'd recommend to get an introduction to the space? Or any companies in the venture space you're keeping tabs on?

Won’t own cars but always have immediate access to one.
Nathan Worden's avatar
I keep telling my family this is the ideal future.

The cost of owning a car will only make sense in some rare edge cases. Most people will be better served paying by the mile for transportation services. Owning a car will be unnecessary.
Panos's avatar
@nathanworden people will also to choose the type of car they want to access. A pickup truck for a trip to IKEA or an SUV for a ski trip.

At some point, we won’t even drive the vehicle, putting an end to the madness we are living today where any numbskull can get behind the wheel and ruin your day (or your life.)
Nathan Worden's avatar
Yeah those are powerful arguments. I'm most excited for self driving because of how many lives it will save per year (approx. 30,000 worldwide).

Regarding choice- that makes a lot of sense. Every trip you go on has a different purpose. The vehicle you take should match the reason for the trip.
Nathan Worden's avatar
Thinking about this from an investing perspective- who benefits? Who loses?

Uber and Lyft probably get the first shot at being the gatekeepers for on-demand car deliver services.

The losers are probably the car dealerships.
Panos's avatar
@nathanworden $AAPL ? They seem to be fixated on recurring revenue bundles so this play would fit.
Nathan Worden's avatar
$AAPL would love to make a self driving car. I'd love to see it. If I have to make a bet at this early stage, I'd go with @gillinghammer and say $TSLA has enough of a lead that they get there first and benefit the most from this future scenario. Competition from Apple would be great for the consumer though.
Cool
