I know this post will, frustratingly, only apply to UK co-creators who have access to the BBC iPlayer but for those of you who haven't seen it, one of my favourite science authors and 'futurists', Michio Kaku, has done a short series called Visions of the Future about how AI, biotech and quantum technology will transform society in the years to come. They are being shown again on the BBC for those who missed them. I always feel there's cause for optimism about scientific and techological advancement if we just raise our eyes from the clouds of fear that have been cast about us and take the long view. His discussions certainly challenge conventional thinking and are great food for thought. I hope some of you get to enjoy them too.
