Population Control Through The Advances In Technology - Chris Roberts GrrCON 2017 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Population Control Through The Advances In Technology
Chris Roberts
GrrCON 2017

The Future. :) Will we end up with a hierarchical system of digital existence? At the moment we still need humans to be able to produce for us, we are not talking about food or anything so mundane but at some point we are going to need to maintain a source of power, cooling and of course increased capacity for that ever expanding universe that we are creating so will we have those who prefer the conscious life over the digital life? Will we somehow manage to tier the existence in such a way that we become a totally separate set of entities, if so how will we exits, how would we manage to interact in a manner that is symbiotic with our fellow man who,s on the outside? Are we possibly looking at population control through digitization? There,s 7-8 Billion of us on this planet at the moment, if a large chunk of humanity decides to give up on its physical body and solely rely upon the digital resources for existence then there,s an argument to be made for the simple fact we,d be saving the planets resources (as long as the data centers could be maintained in a somewhat carbon neutral manner (which some have proved IS possible).
