As artificial intelligence becomes more mainstream through the adoption of gadgets like Amazon Echo and Google Home, how far off are we from the cinematic worlds created in movies like Her, Blade Runner, or The Terminator? How much realism is behind these famous depictions of tech and artificial intelligence?
To investigate just how “sci-fi” our world may look like in 30 years, we spoke with Kevin Kelly, the founding executive editor of Wired magazine, a futurist who served as Steven Spielberg’s adviser in building the world of Minority Report, and a writer with a very optimistic view of how technology will shape the future.
