Abstract

Whilst peering into the future on our journey towards a type 2 civilisations, both certain precautions and assumptions need to be made. From the dire warnings related to superintelligent machines spawned from artificial general intelligence to the awe inspiring nature of Moore’s Law and the ever nearing approach of the technological singularity, predicting the future has always been very difficult for the human race as we have lacked the interconnectedness in order to establish any form of true global consensus. This is now rapidly changing due to the rise of the internet and social media. The effect known as Dunbar’s number is declining. Trust between large groups of individuals using various forms of reputation systems is allowing for the first time, the ability for society to collaborate in trustless environments.
