WELCOME TO THE AGE OF EXPONENTIAL TECH
We believe that technology and technological progress will transform us into a sustainable life form on this planet.
Humanity has transitioned from the stone age to the interplanetary age within just a few thousand years. Almost everything we call technology has been invented in the last 500 years, from book printing to steam engines and automobiles to airplanes. What we call high tech today is not even 50 years old. The first commercial microprocessor was rolled out by Intel in 1971. Since then, the amount of available computing power has been the driving force behind our technological progress – the more computing power available, the more new technology is invented. Therefore, it is a self-reinforcing loop where available computing power grows at an exponential rate.
We are entering the age of quantum computing. Soon the first commercial applications will be on the market and this will not only catapult us into an even more accelerated future, but it will also allow for human-like Artificial Intelligence. Aspects of our reality will become computable in real time, making technology available that is unimaginable today.
Technology has always been a tool for mankind to use to free up time. Valuable time and energy which would otherwise go to waste in trivial mental or physical labor. Since plowing a field with one's bare hands is hugely time consuming and energy draining. The process was then improved upon by implementing an animal pulled plow which shortened that work process. And, while using a plow pulled by a vehicle makes the process even faster, by using drone technology to automate this process the entire task could be seamlessly delegated to machines.
As we are now entering the age of automation, technology frees up ever more time. It is no longer needed to waste talent on mere basic survival. We can invest our time and talent into learning, creativity, and creating even more technologically enhanced inventions.
Already today, with our existing technology, we could provide food, energy, education and shelter for 10 billion human beings on this planet. Yet our societal, political, and economical structures are not reflecting these technological possibilities.
We at Atomind believe that we can make a difference by providing tools that can help our societies overcoming division, political inefficiency and failing economic principles. We want to support a planet where everyone is a citizen and no one left behind.
We believe that technology should serve mankind to create the best world possible and help every human being on this planet thrive as a conscious individual who has free will and every right of self-determination. We believe that everyone should be given the opportunity to maximize their talent regardless of gender, ethnicity or religion.
We follow a human centric approach to technology, and we recognize the possibilities of artificial intelligence and automation as our chance to make this world a better and a sustainable home. That is why we work every day to create and shape our contribution to the infrastructure of the future.
“For me, the really concerning aspect of this is that now, more than at any time in our history, our species needs to work together. We face awesome environmental challenges: climate change, food production, overpopulation, the decimation of other species, epidemic disease, acidification of the oceans. Together, they are a reminder that we are at the most dangerous moment in the development of humanity.”
