AI, Blockchain, Crypto, and Life After Google
COSM is an intimate and exclusive national summit on the converging technologies remaking the world as we know it. For decades, George Gilder has written presciently about the technological revolutions shaping our world, from the microchip in Microcosm, broadband in Telecosm, and now the cryptocosm in Life After Google. What a world: artificial intelligence, blockchain, 5G, crypto-currency, autonomous vehicles, cloud computing, the biotech revolution, and internet commerce — all are converging in Seattle, and at COSM. The mission of the conference is to stimulate debate and deliberation amongst industry leaders on the unities animating these apparently divergent technology areas.
The overthrow of matter in science leads plausibly to the ascendancy of information and mind in contemporary technology, and hence in economics as well.George Gilder, Microcosm
The computer era is falling before the one technological force that could surpass in impact the computer’s ability to process and create information. That is communication, which is more essential to our humanity than computing is.George Gilder, Telecosm
The first rule of the cryptocosm is the barn-door law: “Security first.” Security is not a procedure or a mechanism; it is an architecture.George Gilder, Life After Google
