artifact description
Is education as we know it coming to an end? Will we even have a need for a structured educational system in the next fifty years? Join us as we look at the not-to-distant future of the intersection of biology, technology, and learning as we visit the theories of futurists such as Ray Kurzweil, Michio Kaku, and William Gibson, developments in quantum computing, the internet of things, and biotech, and pioneering films such as Minority Report, Terminator, and The Matrix. All of these provide insight as to where humanity’s future, and by direct correlation, education’s future, may lie.
